good enough to be real?
i'm still waiting for the
something to wake me up so i can remember that
this is all a dream.
some things are too good to be true
but only some
so mustn't there be things in this life that are so deeply
that i will never have to remember
it was only a dream?
there must be.
the alarm hasn't gone off yet
I trudged through the school's hallways. It was way to earky for this.
How had I ended up in the situation, alone in my old middle school at four in the morning?
Great question. See, I don't know the answer.
They told me to. I was fine with it. Now it seems like less of a good idea.
You see, my little brother has this guy who is constantly picking on him. Like, full on abusing the poor kid.
I was going to get him back.
I regret telling my friends.
They persuaded me. Now here I am, a bag full of all sorts of stuff hanging on my shoulder.
The door's unlocked. Jaime made sure of that. Clarissa's job was the alarm system. Mai's job was stalling the principal, who insisted on showing up three hours early at this ungodly hour for no reason. James had been chosen to create a large distraction. I'm not sure what I'm waiting for, but Louis should send a signal when it's time to go in. Any second, any second.
The school bell goes off. God, that alarm brings back painful memories
That's gotta be the signal, just has to be. I carefully shove open the door, trying not to make a sound.
Just a few short hours later, I'm arriving to my own school day, more tired and dead than the average high school student.
My phone lets out the little PING! sound.
Glancing down, I see a text from my brother.
"You'll never guess what happened this morning..."
The door was opened and they looked out.
She was very surprised and he looked very worried.
Who was it, who was looking through that door?
Who had seen them, did they know?
No, no one could know what they did tonight.
So they went quickly to find out more.
Silently they crept to that back door, their shovels in hand.
But no one was there.
They sneaked through the house to see if anyone had been there.
Check the windows, the doors, the rooms.
Nothing, the doors were locked, the windows closed, and the rooms empty.
So how had the door opened?
they go back to the door and looked around.
There, what is that hidden by the frame?
She slowly picked up the object and finally, it all made sense.
That stupid cat had nearly given them a heart attack.
