I was on a futon, when the phone rang. Sun coming from the shade. I can barely open my eyes. I answer the phone.
“Mmmm…listen today you don’t have school, so just stay at Deon’s until I get there.”
I fell back asleep for like ten minutes, when I feel something on my chest. Deon wakes me up for breakfast. She made fish and eggs with mango. I only eat the mango and half of the eggs. The futon is next to the table, and I can barely move. Deon asks me to go to the corner store with her son, Craig. She needs Pepsi and tissues. I tell her “sure” I’ll go.
First we had to stop at one of Craig’s friend’s house to get an “X” box 360 game. We went down the street on the left. Craig was riding his skateboard, and I walked. There were a lot of cars driving by.
When we got to the store, Craig got the Pepsi’s and I went to get the tissues. I looked around the store and had to ask the clerk,
“”where are the tissues?”
“Sorry, we’re out of tissues.”
So we left the store with only Pepsis. There were still a lot of cars when we crossed the street to walk back to the house. I didn’t do much else that day, but it was a good day- better than being in school.
