wake up

"Beep.Beep.Beep" Somebody screeched into my ear.

"Go away." I mumbled into my pillow.

"Awww, don't be like that sunshine, or I will have to glue you to your sheets."My Aunt said cheerily her honey coloured eyes staring into my tired ocean blue ones.

I pulled my self into a sitting position, knowing from past experience that my bubbly aunt wasn't bluffing.

My Aunt jumped off the bed dancing too the music coming from down stairs, her curly golden hair looking as if it had a life of it's own.

"...and if it's a hero you want, I can save you. Just stay here..."she sung her voice sounded like the tinkling of bells.

The fact that she was dancing like a maniac to such a slow song made me laugh, and I joined in her singing.

"Will you stay awake for me?

Idon't wanna miss anything

I don't wanna miss anything.

I will share the air I breath

I'll give you my heart on a string.

I just don't wanna miss anything....."

we sing smiling and laughing the whole time. I loved my Aunt Julia,she had raised me since the third grade after my mother died. She was like a best friend to me,and she was always there when I needed her. She was an artist, a good one and had made her money from her art gallery in the city. She had taken me there a few times, and I loved it. It was a place where you could let go of who you were and become part of the beauty that surrounds you. I went there alot after the funeral, but went less and less after I became more settled into my life.

"hey sunshine, I get the feeling your running late, my aunt said collapsing on my bed. I looked over at the clock on the side of my bed that read 8:20.

"crap!" I yell as I dive into my wardrobefor something to wear. I pulled out a pair of pink skinny jeans and a black ninja turtles top I shrug my shoulders, it will do, i tell myself as i run into the bathroom 5 minutes later I was on the back of my aunts motorbike(I was still saving for my own car) sliding the helmet over my half brushed hair.


When we reached school I flung the helmet off my head slipped the leather jacket from my shoulders and started to jog off to home room. "I feel the love ray, feel the love" my aunt said dramatically from behind me I rolled my eyes and shouted "See you this arvo J. I WUFF OOO!!!!" I shouted over my shoulder laughing to myself. Then all of a sudden the hairs on the back of my neck stood up and I stopped running.

"Well, well, well. looked what the crazy lady dragged in" Said a high voice. I turned around to see to my great displeasure that it was the tall beautiful blond cheerleader that had been my enemy since I first moved to this town.


April Heart.

The End
