Wham! Wham! Wham!
I slammed my head against my locker, I was so frustrated. I woke up on the wrong side of the bed literally; I woke on on the floor with my insanely large dog on the bed in my place. worst, still i couldn’t shower or take care of basic hygienic needs, because my sister hogged up the bathroom all morning long. Worst still, while i was trying to eat my cereal in peace, my mother came charging in and started giving me a piece of her mind. Because my science teacher decided then was a good time to call her and tell her about me almost failing class. What’s worse, I have a test in that class, I couldn’t study because my book had been stolen the day before, and I forgot my homework. so the best I can do now is sit on the floor slamming my head against a locker and hoping that I can enter a coma or be to disoriented to go to class.
Do da do! Do do da do!
My phone is ringing, i pick in up and realize a friend named, Maxmimus was face timing me. Maximus lives in Tampa Florida, so we never see each other but it’s great when he visits. I accept the face time.
“oh thank god! Anri i need to talk to someone!” Maximus whimpers.
I’m taken aback by his tear streaked face.
“What’s wrong?” I ask
“My grandmother died this morning, I couldn’t go to school today, They’re trying to track down someone else to take me in…” Maximus wailed
I dropped my phone in shock. Struggling to pick it up, I sighed when I realized that it had cracked because # 1 bratty sister had ‘borrowed’ my case. I say borrowed because mom doesn’t like me calling her thief.
“are you okay? do you know anyone who can take you in?” I asked
Maximus huffed ” I don’t know, I think I have a cousin who lives in Wisconsin. I’m scared! what if they can’t track a person down to take me? I’ll be put in foster care!”
I shuddered to think of it. Wave a friend of mine is always going in and out of foster care, he says that more often than not the people are usually doing it just to make a few bucks, and not because they have a shred of kindness in their hearts. But he’s also said that he’s met actual people doing it because the feel kids deserve homes where they’re happy, so it was a roll of the die if Maximus was put into foster care.
“listen to me. you will be okay. you’ll be fine. you. will be. fine.” I urged
——————————————————————————————————————–I’m not to sure if you can tell, but the main character Anri is a boy. i actually didn’t know how to end this so i’m glad time caught up with me. what does anyone else think should happen, also please leave constructive criticism!
