~*Chapter 2*~


“Breakfast!” I heard my brother yell from downstairs.


I groaned and rolled over only to find myself struggling to remain on higher ground.  I opened my eyes and looked where I was sleeping.  The window seat.


I know that I had fallen into a crumpled heap on the floor after crying.  My brother must have come in to check on me and put me on the window seat.


I stretched and got off the window seat.  I looked down at the black dress I was wearing and decided to change into something more comfortable.


I walked downstairs to find my brother in the kitchen making waffles.  He glanced at me as I walked in and he rolled his eyes.  I ignored him.  He wasn’t going to let me get off that easy.


“What are you wearing?” he asked.


“My pajamas,” I answered.


“Why did you just now change into pajamas when it’s morning?”


I shrugged, “They’re comfortable.”


He shook his head and turned back around to get out the butter and syrup.


I sat down at the table.


He turned around, grinned at me, and asked, “Are you sure you want to go to school looking like that?”


I felt my eyes open wide in shock.  School?  They honestly expected me to go to school?


“I take it you weren’t anticipating this,” he said.


“Obviously,” I said while I got up from the table to go change.





By the time I made it downstairs my brother was washing his dishes.  He barely glanced at me, “Better hurry up if you want time to eat.”


I looked at the clock.  Great.  I was going to be late.


I grabbed my backpack, which was hanging next to the door and hollered to my brother, “Thanks, but no thanks!”


I could have sworn I heard him chuckle and mutter under his breath, “Late again.”


It was snowing as I was leaving the house.  I grabbed my ipod out of my backpack and put in the headphones and walked to school.


I walked in the front doors and I swear everyone stopped what they were doing to look at me.   I froze for a split second then I walked down the hallway while people pointed at me and whispered.  I didn’t like it.  At all.
