Spring’s here, finally it only took…FOUR long hard months! It was cold down here, in FLORIDA…the SUNSHINE STATE, hello! Well out with the old, and in with the new, time to start some real spring cleaning. Ah, and my favorite parts, planting things, flowers, and getting ready for…the best season of all time…summer!
I’m so existed, tomorrow is going to be a full solar eclipse! It’s going to be my first eclipse in my WHOLE life…eclipses are very rare, we’re lucky to see one! Then on April 3th, the Passover, there will be a red moon! This will be my second.
My science geek self is bursting with excitement! I can’t wait! I’m so writing about my experience in my journal! 🙂
Hope you all have a great day. (Also a Springy Spring Break, those in school)! 🙂
“So how was work, David?” Mom asked. He said it was good. “So, Grace, how was school?”
“I told you, it was fine!” I repeated.
“Everyone was nice?” Dad asked.
“If when people just stare, but don’t talk to you nice…then yeah.” I answered. Mom looked at dad. “It’s ok.” I put in. Mom looked worried. “Mom, I don’t care what they do, or say!”
Dad smiled. “That’s my girl.”
Chapter 6: Good-night
I was listening to some music on my MP3 Player. It was at my favorite song, ‘All Hail Shadow,’ from Shadow the Hedgehog. “Nothing can stop you know. No ghost can bring you down! When there’s nothing felt to loose, you win!” I hummed. Dad walked in.
“Lights out.” He said. I turned off my music and put it to charge.
“Night dad.” I whispered as he turned of the lights.
“Night, Snowy Mountain.” He whispered.
It was a warm day so hey, why not?
“Daddy!” I yelled jumping on him. I know, ‘daddy,’ sounds babyish, but he’s the fist dad I REALLY had.
“Hey, Snowy Mountain, how was your first day?” He asked putting me down. I gave him my later face. I wanted this feeling of happiness to last forever. He nodded. “Samantha, I’m home!” He called. She popped her head out of the kitchen, she smiled.
“Hi, honey, I’m making your favorite, Green Bean Casserole.” He made a grossed out face. I giggled. Mom smiled, “Her laugh, a rare thing.”
“Yeah.” He answered watching me set the table.
At 4:00 the last bell rang. I grabbed my things and started for home. The sidewalk was flooded, flooded with kids! ‘About 600 kids each having two eyes…’ I did the math in my head. ‘1,200 eyes?! No, no, 1,200 eyes to stare at me…no!’ I took the long way home. I got home around 4:30.
“How was your first day?” Mom asked. I shrugged, putting my bag in my room. “Grace?” I looked at her and shrugged again. “What took you so long?” She asked.
“I…took the long way,” I answered. She sighed. I tried to smile. “Nothing happened, ok? Nothing happened.”
“Ok.” She went back to opening caned green beans.
“Is dad coming home today?” I asked, washing my hands. He’s been working so hard he slept at the office. She nodded. I clapped my hands with glee.
‘Ug! Why does the whole school have lunch at the same time?!’
I felt like everyone there had stared at me TWICE! Some girls even started whispered, when the thought I wasn’t looking. I found an empty table and sat down. I picked at the food on my tray. I wasn’t hungry. Mom says I’d never eat if she didn’t force me to. Nobody sat with me, which was fine by me.
Jessy sat across from me. Two of her friends sitting beside her. One being, Brain, he’s in my homeroom. “Hey, Elsa! When are you going to sing let it go?” He laughed. I smiled. They looked annoyed, I didn’t cry or something.
“Can I ask, how did your hair turn white, is it a disease?” Jessy asked. I shook my head. I still didn’t look up.
“I-I was born like this, my mom’s hair was white,” I mumbled.
“Mrs. Rose’s hair isn’t white!” The other girl said.
After a few more minuets of them asking questions, must not being answered, Jessy and her friends finished, and said good-bye. After the had left I dumped my tray and headed for my locker.
