If only I wasn't alone.

It's a new year at school. Nothing strange could possibly happen...

1. Rude Awakening

September 1st, 1999

 

  BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP

  I woke up to the sound of my alarm clock buzzing in my ear. I remember putting it over on my dresser at the other side of the room the night before so that I would have to get up to turn it off and then I would be awake. Instead, I grabbed my pillow and threw it at it. It muffled the noise a tiny bit.

  "Yes, yes, I'm getting up," I muttered to myself and then pulled the covers over my head.

  BEEP BOOP BEEP BOOP BEEP BOOP

  There goes the smoke alarm. Mom can't cook, and she's always burning everything.

  Then my door flung open. Dad ran in with black stuff from the smoke in his hair.

  "Get up, breakfast is er- just get up."

  So I got up and walked downstairs. It was five in the morning and still dark. We always need to get up for school really early for the first few days, so "the teachers will like me" as mom says. I got some cereal from the cupboard and poured it out. I got the milk from the fridge and poured that in too.

  After an hour or so, I finally stopped picking at my cereal and decided I was full.

  Then I went upstairs again and got my itchy school uniform from my wardrobe and threw it on. Then I spent the rest of my time making my hair look acceptable and doing my makeup. People get bullied easily at my school, so it's best to look good.
