The sun was high in the sky, shining down brightly on the Oklahoman suburbs.  Jamie looked at her watch idly.  11:49.

She let out an enormous sigh and continued to write in her notebook. 

...So then she kissed me, and it was absolutely epic!!!  I can feel the excitement all around me!  I swear, she is the first good thing that happened to me with my mom.  And despite what I thought was impossible before now...

Although she tried to press on, a switch in her head forced her to pause before continuing.

...I firmly believe that I am in LOVE!  Furthermore...

Jamie was interrupted by the persistant growling of her stomach.  Groaning loudly, she looked out the window.  To her pleasure, the torn-apart red Chevy that previously hogged the driveway had disappeared.

"Woohoo!"  Jamie screamed happily out the window and rushed downstairs.  Quickly, she rushed into the kitchen and began playing scavenger with the droors.  I've seen more edible-looking things in dumpsters.  She thought, tearing through moldy packages in the refrigerator.  Oh wait, that wouldn't be fair.  This place is a dumpster...

Exasperated, she gve up and went back upstairs.  Five minutes later, Jamie walked back outside with her purse in hand.  She hiked five kilometers to the nearest Kwik Shop, stopping only once to ask for directions. 

The children playing in the street caught her eye at one point.  Suddenly, her mind flashed back to an image she only saw in her worst nightmares...

The End
