I woke up having a sharp pain in my back. I turned over to see Martin still snoring loudly. I flung the covers off me and got out of bed. My hair was messed up bouncing in all sorts of directions. I went downstairs to watch some TV. Nobody wakes up this early except for me. It’s the only quiet time I get from Julie complaining. I sat down and turned on Nickelodeon. It was Saturday morning so I was pretty happy that we didn’t have school for another day. SpongeBob was on so I decided to watch. Mom and dad came stumbling down the stairs.
“Hey honey,” mumbled dad scratching his head.
I turned my head around. “Why are you up so early?” I asked.
“We have to get Julie to a soccer practice,” said my mom putting on her blue button down coat.
Julie came trotting down the stairs in her soccer uniform. “I love soccer!” She yelled probably waking my brother up in the process.
“Ah shut the f*** up,” Martin shouted from upstairs.
I snickered and my dad looked at me with a scowl on his face.
“Ok sweetie, get in the car and we’ll be on our way!” said my mom proudly rubbing Julies head.
They all headed out the door as I heard the garage open.
The rest of the day went along as usual. Julie had gotten back from soccer practice at one O’clock and started bragging about how good she was. Martin and I couldn’t take her bragging so we decided to go to Jimmy’s house while Julie had a play date with Maria, Johnny’s little sister. Martin always liked to go and visit Jimmy but rarely brought me along only on special occasions because his gang was usually there and liked to smoke and drink. I guess that made him a little annoyed. We headed down the driveway and down the road. Jimmy’s house was right across from ours. I saw him shooting hoops with two of his friends. We headed up his driveway.
“Hey Marty what’s going on?!” He said shooting the basketball in to the hoop.
“Nothing much, hey is it ok if Avi stays here? My little sis is being annoying and I didn’t want to leave her alone.
“Yeah it’s all right!” He said smiling at me.
I crossed my arms and sneered at him.
Jimmy’s whole gang showed up.
“I bet he called them,” I thought to myself.
