I turn on my ipod. Tears don't fall by Bullet for my valentine comes on, blaring loudly in my ears. I smile and start moshing. I love this song!
I mosh out of my room and slide down the stair rail. I jump off the end and walk into the kitchen. I open the fridge door and the first thing I see is beer. And lots of it. I sigh and rumage through, pulling out the milk.
I get some bread and start eating while I pour the last of the milk into my cup. I swallow and take a gulp of milk. My ipod dies. Great! You Me At Six was about to come on!
There's a knock at the door and I run to open it. Maybe it's dad, finally back. I wipe the milk off my face and throw the piece of bread on the stairs. I look into the full length mirror and tuck my dark brown waves behind my ears.
I quickly open the door, excitement flowing through me. I smile "Hey!" I practically yell but my face soon drops when I see Jay, my 18 year old brother. "What? Thought I was your boyfriend?" I roll my eyes and let him in. "Jay, I don't have a boyfriend. What do you want now?"
He pretends to act hurt. "So I can't pop in on my own sister anymore?" I roll my redish eyes. Jay only comes home when he wants something. He moved out when mum died and he got a flat but he always comes back for money mostly. "I need the place tonight." He says looking around the huge house and going into the kitchen. "No!" I say shaking my head.
He does his puppy dog eyes. What is he? Eight? They don't work on me anyway. I shake my head. "Oh c'mon Dawn, I've already got the beer." He says and opens the fridge. I sigh, I should of known the beer was for a party.
"No." I say again. He shrugs. "Fine then, you won'yget your mail then." I start to move towards him. "Mail? Mail. Give me the mail." I say realising that he's got it all in his right hand.
"Only if I'm allowed a party." I think it through then growl. "Fine, Jay. You can have the stupid party. Now give me the mail!"He smiles and throws it onto the table. He kisses me on the head and walks off. "Cya in a hour Dawny." I scowl at him as he closes the door. Stupid big brother!
I pick up the mail. "Bill. Bill. Bill. Post card from dad! I throw the bills away and open the card.
'Hey Dawn sorry but I've got to stay out here, in Africa, for a while longer.
I sigh. I know he's helping out and all but I want him back. I haven't seen him in months! I grab the other unopened letter and take it to my room. I'm sulking but I don't care.
Once in my room, I put my ipod on charge and open my letter addressed to me.

I shake my head. What kind of prank is this? I sigh and throw it in the bin. I collapse on my bed and close my eyes. Tonight's gonna be a long one!
