Chapter 17Mature

Someone placed cool lips on mine. I had my eyes closed, but I knew it was Mickey. I smiled, my eyes still closed. I was so tired. I couldn't even get up. But I opened my eyes that kept trying to close.

"Are Jordan and Heather still here?"

"Yeah, they're still sleeping."

"Then why'd you wake me up?"

He shrugged.

"Well, are you gonna wake up?"

I nodded slowly. 

"Carry me," I said lifting my arms. Mickey bent down and allowed me to wrap my arms around his neck and my legs around his waist. I rested my head on his shoulder. His arms were wrapped around me. I almost fell asleep. He placed me on the couch.

"You're still tired, sweetheart," he said stroking my hair, "go back to sleep."

I slowly shook my head but soon my eyes closed. Before I shut my eyes, I saw Mickey smile.

When I woke up, again, Jordan and Mickey were awake eating pancakes on the other couch. I was on the loveseat.They didn't see me awake, they were watching some show, and Heather was sleeping under the covers. I stood up and walked to the bathroom. I stared at myself in the mirror after I washed my face. My usually apricot skin tone had turned to a goldenish tan, my eyes seemed greener, my cheekbones more prominent. My hair had turned darker, but it still had that reddish tint in it, my face was thinner. And what I like the most about my change were my fuller lips. My body was still skinny and I wished I was getting a little curvy. I brushed my teeth and brushed my hair. I walked outside. Heather had turned and I sat down next to Mickey and rested my head on his shoulder.

"Breakfast?" he asked.

"I'll go get it."

I walked upstairs and saw Lisa making a match of pancakes and cookies. I opened the refrigerator like I lived here. I practically did. I've been here so often since kindergarten that I knew this house inside out.

"Cookie?" she asked offering me one from the first batch.

"Thanks," I said as I put one in a plate and poured myself a glass of milk. I walked downstairs. Heather was sound asleep, still. It was almost 11:00. I sat on loveseat, stretching my legs and took a bite of my cookie. Summer was almost over, but everything was going ok.

The End
