"WAKE UP ITS CHRISTMAS!" Alex yelled in my ear and jumped all over my bed. I groaned and looked over at my clock. 4am?
"Alex what are you doing up so early?" I said and rubbed my eyes, attempting to wake myself up.
"Santa came!" he jumped and pointed out the door.
"It's 4am, mom and dad won't be up for like another 3 hours! Get to bed." I said and shooed him away.
"I can't sleep anymore." he said and sat done beside me.
"Ok bud, just lay down and try to sleep." I said and patted the empty spot next to me in bed.
"Thanks, Ari. Merry Christmas!" he smiled and closed his eyes.
"You too, pal." I said and drifted off to sleep.
"These two must be knocked out." I heard my mom whisper from the door.
I opened my eyes and looked at the time. It was 10am. I can't believe Alex woke me up.
"Wake up Alex!" I said and shook him.
"Huh? CHRISTMAS!" he said and jumped up quickly.
"Let's go!" he said and dragged me down the stairs. I looked at everything under the tree, but I'd just be clothes and stuff as always when you get older.
"Mommy, daddy, you should open yours first." he said and handed them their presents.
"Thank you Alex! A family picture, just what I asked for. Also some perfume and sweaters!" she said and looked over to dad.
"Cologne, ties, shoes. The usual." he smiled and told us to open our stuff.
I let Alex first, since he was the youngest. He opened a few Lego sets and plastic dinosaurs. He seemed very excited to get all that.
"Ari, you wanna open?" he said and shoved the wrapped boxes to me.
"Oh, sure." I said and ripped them open. There was clothes, more vans, phone cases, and something I didn't expect to actually get.
"Oh my gosh! The piano I asked for!" I said and pulled it out.
"I've always wanted to play!" I squealed and that Christmas sure was a success.
"Luke! What did you get?" I asked as I talked to him through the iPhone screen.
"The guitar I asked for! How about you?"
"The usual girl stuff, but I got a piano! Do you play? I've always wanted to learn." I said.
"Actually, yes. I could teach you... if you want." he said and blushed.
"That'd be great!" I smiled and we chatted about Christmas and when we were going to get together.
"My moms calling me, my relatives are here. Bye!" he said and hung up.
"Hey, like your presents?" my dad asked and walked into my room.
"Yeah! Best Christmas, if I could say so myself." I laughed and he told me lunch was downstairs if I wanted any.
I ran down the stairs, hungry as ever.
"Wow! Fancy sandwiches!" I said and looked at the plate. It looked so good, I could eat it all in one bite.
"Try it!" my mom said and handed me some.
I bit into it and was immediately in love with them.
"They're great! Hey, I'm going to skate." I said and grabbed my board. I decided to just go around wherever.
I was going around some neighborhood, and I actually spotted Michael.
"Michael?" I said and skated towards him.
"Hey, Ariana! What are you doing out?" he asked.
"I would ask the same." I laughed and started to walk with him.
"Asked you first." he laughed and nudged me.
"Okay, I was just bored. Now you." I said.
"Nothin to do, just thinking I guess." he said I looked up into the blue sky.
"About?" I questioned.
"Stuff. I don't know." he said.
"There's something on your mind." I said.
"What if this band thing doesn't work? I'm failing school, and that band is the only thing that I can depend on. My life will be a disaster!" he said.
"Michael, don't worry. It'll all go smoothly. Good things happen to good people." I tried to cheer him up and it somewhat helped.
"Thanks. Uh, I really should get going. My parents are probably worried and all that stuff." he said and waved goodbye to me. I jumped back on my board, skating home peacefully.
What a Christmas well spent.
