When I woke up the next morning it was 8:30am. I had overslept! I quickly jumped out of bed and ran to my bathroom. I didn't bother doing much makeup or putting in my contacts but I did spend time on my hair and outfit.
I grabbed my glasses and rushed downstairs to notice that my mom is still home. "How come you didn't wake me?!" I asked hoping I didn't sound too forceful.
"I went upstairs when your alarm went off and you slept through it. You don't often do that. I felt your head and noticed you had a fever. I was going to let you sleep but I guess you're ready I'll take you to school..." My mom said getting up and grabbing her keys.
"Oh.. I'm sorry. And no, it's fine. I'll head back to bed." I slouched my way up the stairs and paused when I was almost upstairs.
"Are you making me skip activities with my friends tonight?" I asked
"You're okay to do activities but not go to school? Doesn't work like that." She lectured.
I groaned and scuffed back upstairs. I flopped down on my back on my bed.
I took my phone out of my backpack and texted in the group chat with Luke, Carter, Amy and Katie.
Me: sorry guys, I have a fever. Mom says if I can't go to school, I can't hangout. This sucks. 😖
It wasn't until 12:56pm, lunch, that they all replied.
Carter☺️: real bummer 😞 feel better
Amy❤️: AW DANGIT! We were finally going to do something cool tonight 😂
Katie🍬: feel better 😘 there is always tomorrow!!
Luke is 🆒: dammit. but like Katie said, there is always tomorrow.
I didn't reply to them. I laid on my back staring up at my ceiling. Soon I fell asleep.
When I was woken by my mom, it was 7:45pm. She had brought me chicken noodle soup and a glass of orange juice up to my bedroom.
"Thank you" I smiled at her.
"Feel better" she smiled back and kissed my forehead.
I grabbed my iPad from my bedside table and watched some React Videos on YouTube. During a 'Try not to Laugh' episode a screen popped up saying 'Carter☺️ would like to FaceTime.....'
My heart started beating. I froze there not knowing what to do. I quickly set the plate and glass on my table. Fixed my hair and hit 'accept.'
"Hey Carter!" I said trying to sound alive.
"Hi, how are you feeling?" He asked. His voice deep but not too deep, it was the kind of voice you could never get tired of listening to.
I pushed my glasses back up on my nose when I felt them falling. "Better. My mom brought me chicken noodle soup and orange juice to help me heal faster" he smiled as if he was interested, most people would just find this the absolute most boring thing ever. Carter didn't.
I couldn't help but smile back. I got lost in his eyes. I knew we were only communicating through electronic devices but I felt as if he was right next to me.
"So... Was that all?" I asked.
"No," he shook his head. "I just wanted to see you"
I blushed and hoped he wouldn't notice.
"Will you be at school tomorrow?" He asked
I nodded and yawned.
"Great, I'll let you sleep now. Goodnight Sabrina." his eyes twinkled as he said my name and I completely melted inside.
"Goodnight Carter." I smiled back.
Hi! So I hope you liked this chapter. I actually spent a little more time on this one then the last because this actually happened to me. I have my own Carter in real life 🙈 but yeah, I will be uploading the next chapter very soon!!
