I got up and brushed my teeth and washed my face. I put my clothes and shoes on. My phone has a small crack in it from when my mom dropped it. I looked at the time and grabbed my book bag and ran out the apartment. By time I made it to the bus stop my bus was pulling off.
I pulled out my phone and called my mom.
"What" she said.
"I missed the bus."
"What you telling me for! You better get to stepping cause you ain't coming back into this house until 5:30!"
"That's a 20 minute walk."
"No it ain't if we in the car and it only take 10 minutes to get there it should take you 10 minutes to walk there!"
"What if I get hit by a car crossing the streets."
"Bye Brittany! Take yo ass somewhere as long as you not in my apartment! I'll see you at 5:30!"
The call ended.
I walked to the park and sat down on the bench. Maggie is always out partying with her friends she barley goes to school. She's 17 and I really care about her even though she barely care about me.
I went in my book bag and took out a 10 dollar bill. Brianna boyfriend gave it to me yesterday. It's a McDonald's not far from here I guess I'll go get myself something to eat. I walked to McDonald's and stood in line.
Finally it was my turn to order.
"Um- hi, Can I get a double cheeseburgers with only cheese and ketchup and a medium fry." I said.
"You wanna a drink with it too" the girl asked.
"Yes, orange Hi-c."
"Ight Yo total is 5.52."
I handed her the 10 dollar bill and waited for my change. I got my receipt and sat down.
"Brittany?" I heard someone say.
I looked up and Brianna and some other girl was standing in front of me.
"Hey Brianna." I said.
She sat down with her food, "Why you not in school?"
"I missed the bus and my mom told me to walk but it's a 20 minute walk."
"Shiiit I wouldn't be walking either." Her friend said.
"This is my bestfriend Monique, Monique this is Brittany." She said.
"Nice to meet you."
"Brittany what happened last night, I was bout to come over there and whoop yo mama ass but I was too tired."
I laughed a lil bit, "um, Earlier she told me to go in my room and stay in there until it's time for me to go to school and she had a man with her so I went in my room and went to sleep. I got thirsty so I walked in the kitchen to get something to drink and she asked me a couple questions and started punching me and stomping me then she dragged me into my room."
Brianna moved around in her seat.
"I didn't know you was on the phone I was getting ready to call my sister Maggie but I changed my mind. I don't know how I ended up calling you."
They called me to get my food. I checked it and it had onions and pickles on it but I'll just take it off I'm to scared to tell them it's wrong.
I sat back down.
