It’s been a year!! Yay!! XD
I can’t believe it, it’s been a whole year!! Boy times flies when your writing posts-even though I haven’t posted in a long time. (lol).
Happy fourth of july all my readers! Hope you are enjoying it, I am! So can’t wait to see the firework show!
It was the best afternoon of my life! Mercy and I raced. (I won.) “How did you win?” She asked.
“My wheels are bigger than yours. I need to petal less then you to cover the same distance.” I answered. She laughed. “What?”
“Are you a genius or something?”
“No,” I laughed. “I’m going to be a nanotech engineer, though.” She smiled. A gust of wind blew her blond hair into her face. “I think it’s going to rain.”
“What? How?” She asked. Pulling her hair into a bun.
“The temperature dropped, and there are dark clouds.” I responded.
“We should head, then. I don’t want to get wet.” Mercy advised. I nodded.
‘It’s almost dinner anyway.’ I thought.
“Just in time.” I sighed. Mercy laughed. Mom walked into the living room.
“Hello, mercy, right. Sorry, David got called to work. Nice to meet you.” Mom greeted.
“Nice to meet you too, Mrs. Rose.” She looked out the window. I should call and let them know.” She called her father on her cell.
“What’d they say?” I asked, holding breath.
“I can stay! If it’s ok with your mom.” She clapped. Mom nodded. “Yes!” We squealed.
I took the short way home, today. I was accompanied by Mercy. The other kids stared. Mercy ignored it and we kept walk. My cell buzzed I took it out of jean pocket. It was a text from Dad. He was asking if I was taking the long way home. I wrote back “no,” and that I should be home soon.
I didn’t tell him about Mercy. I don’t know why. “Everything ok?” Mercy asked.
I nodded. “Yeah. It was my dad.” She nodded.
Chapter 9: What’s the Big Deal?
I could see my dad’s face, when he saw Mercy. I sighed to myself. “Mercy, this is my Dad. Dad this is Mercy.”
“Nice to meet you, Mr. Rose.”
“Nice to meet you, Mercy!” My father answered shaking her hand. “So you girls going to work together on your homework?”
“Dad! It’s day two! We still don’t have homework!” I answered.
“Oh,” he said putting his hand on his face, laughing, “So, what are you going to do?”
“If it’s ok with you, Mr. Rose-“
“Call me David.”
“Ok, David. If it’s ok with you, can we go for a bike ride.”
“You want to take my little girl from me?!” He joked. We laughed. “Yes, you can go. Just be home before dinner.” Mercy ran across the street to get her bike. I ran to my bike. It was blue decorated with flowers, and the fenders were pink. Mercy’s bike was green with peace signs, all over.
(Yup. I’m back!)
The day was just like yesterday, until lunch. I was actually eating it this time. “Can I sit here?” A blond girl asked. I nodded. “So Grace, how you liking’ it here?” I shrugged. “I’m Mercy.”
“N-nice to meet you Mercy.”
She smiled. “So, what do you like to do in your spear time?”
“Draw.” I answered, shyly.
” Anything else? Do you like to play outside?” She asked.
“Um…yeah…I enjoy playing outside. Biking.” I said. With more confidence.
“Hey, me too! Maybe we can go riding together,” she said happily. I looked up and smiled.
“Ok. Hey, here do you live?” I asked.
“What?” She asked.
“I live on 70th Way, too! House number 132.” I said, happily.
“This is so cool! I live right across the street!” She answered. We both started to laugh.
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!
