TWO | twentyfour/seven.

Start from the beginning

I busted out laughing. This girl was always on go for me. "I'm okay, Pai. It just Jesse being Jesse. Do you know she followed me when I left the house?"

"Bitch. Followed you? The hell type stuff she on? I'll smack that bitch back to Ohio. She better cut that the fuck out. You told your dad?" She said all in one breath.

I started putting my things into my book bag so that I could be prepared for school in the morning. "Girl. Not exactly. I was cursing up a storm on that phone. All he knows is that I'm upset."

She sighed. "Don't let it get to you. Just get some rest. It's 2am. We have school and you have an exam. So rest up and remember it's fuck that dumb bitch. I love you, Av."

I laughed. "Love you too, Pai." I said before hanging up the phone. I put my phone on to the charger and went to go shower. I put a shower cap on and took my shower. When I was done I did my skin care routine and brushed my teeth. I got my bonnet out of the bottom drawer and put it on. I payed before I laid down in bed and let sleep take over my body.

The sound of my alarm work me up. I groaned while looking at the time on my phone, 7:35am. All I wanted to do was turn it off and roll back over to go to sleep. I gave myself a motivational speech just to get out of bed.

I went back to sleep until my alarm woke me up again. I finally got up at, 7:52am. I went to the bathroom and brushed my teeth and washed my face. I fixed my hair up by slicking it and putting it into two braids then went to find something to wear. I was getting frustrated because I literally couldn't find anything. I had to settle for shit that I didn't even want to wear. (Never mind the cell phone.)

After finally being done at, 8:32am

After finally being done at, 8:32am. I was finally ready to go. School started at 9am but I would always have to get up early because I could never find anything to wear in the morning. It's like my clothes disappear over night.

I walked down the stairs and seen my dad in the kitchen. I skipped over to him and kissed his cheek. "Good morning."

"Morning, buttercup. Are you having a better morning than you did night?" He asked me while raising an eyebrow.

I busted out laughing. "I'm sooooo sorry about that. Jesse followed me and Esma when we left the house." I told him. He shook his head but didn't say anything.

"I don't know what I'm going to do about her." He sighed. "Eat something and hurry so you won't be late. You need to start putting on jackets before you leave this house." I nodded and just put one of the bagels and some bacon in one of the plastic bowls that we had. I kissed his cheek then headed outside to my car so that I could go to school.
