'Katelyn, if you don’t hurry up I swear I’ll shove my movie down your throat!' Ash said as I emptied my locker.
‘Just a few more things….’ I threw book after book into my bag.
‘Hurry up! It’s like summer break and were still at school!’ my other bestie Sammi said pinching me on my shoulder.
‘Right! Done! Let’s go!’ I said shutting and locking my locker.
I looked at both of them, ‘What?’ They said nothing but rolled their eyes.
‘BAAAAAAA!” Steph yelled nearly scaring me out of my wits.
‘Hwy that’s not funny, is it?’ I asked as they all busted out in laughter. ‘Where’s Arnie by the way?’ but before anyone could answer my question, Arnie came running around the corner.
‘AHHHHHHHH! BAAAAAAA! BAAAAAA!’ she slipped over and skidded into our circle. ‘Did I scare anyone?’ she asked hopefully fixing up her glasses.
‘Absolutely! I nearly started screaming myself!’ I managed to say threw my snickers.
‘Hello hot guys,’ Steph, Sammi and Ash said at the same time.
‘Oooo!’ Arnie said jumping to her feet and to Daniels side.
‘Babe.’ Alex said standing next to and hugging Ash.
Simon walked over to Steph and slipped a package into her hand; she slipped it into her pocket and held his hand.
Thomas came running steadily around the corner. Sammi took off into a sprint and ran straight into him.
‘Here,’ she reached into her back pocket and pulled out fake vampire fangs. ‘Put them in.’
Thomas- the show off that he is- shoved the fangs into his mouth lifted Sammi up and pretended to bite her.
‘Wow! Now I really can say that I only date vampires,’ Sammi sung happily.
Thomas kissed her on the cheek, ‘What ever you say!’
Sammi laughed, ‘Ha! Ha! No really are you?’
We walked out of school grounds to the car park opposite the post office. We- meaning myself and my four brothers- hopped into our car and took off for home after waving every one goodbye.
‘What did you give Steph, Simon?’ I asked shoving my seat belt on.
‘Ummm. Your Pandora bracelet, with all your charms.’ Simon answered back.
I rolled my eyes and gazed across the street to see Jackson and his brothers and sisters. I waved a casual wave and murmured to my self, ‘Good bye.’
I woke up to someone pulling at my eyebrows, nose, and lifting my eyelids up.
‘ARRRR! Go away Myer!’ I yelled realizing she was lying on top of my.
‘Your eyes go funny when I lift them up when you’re ni-nies!’ Myer said.
‘Nar Dar! Go away!’ I yelled at her and pulled the blankets over my head.
Myer wiggled in under the blankets ‘it’s so dark under here isn’t it!’ Myer whispered.
‘Nar dar! I thought it was so bright under here!’ I said sarcastically and threw the blankets of me sitting up in the bed.
‘No silly!’ Myer giggled ‘Piggyback! Piggyback!’
I rolled my eyes ‘fine hold on!’
I walked-still tired from the night before- down the stairs and threw Myer on the couch.
‘What do you want to watch?’ I asked and turned the TV on.
‘Robin Hood! Robin Hood…..’
‘Yah alright I heard you the first time!’ I placed the disc in the machine and pressed play.
I looked around at the time, ‘Wow 10:33am where’s mummy and daddy Myer my minion?’
‘Ummm….. There….. Ummm….. I forget! Where’s my blankey?’
‘Ummm….. It’s….. Ummm….. I forget!’ I said back blankly.
She looked at me in disbelief. ‘There taking care of some unattended business.’
I threw her, her blankey and slammed my hand hard down on the bench, ‘Dam it!’ I muttered, ‘I knew they would leave me behind. Wait did they all go?’
‘No,’ Myer said flatly, ‘Daddy, Uncky Dan, Uncky Alef, and Uncky Tom went. Mummy, granddaddy, and nanny are out on the porch.’ She wrapped her blanket around her head and went back to her movie.
I picked up a kitchen knife off the bench and started to swing it around in my fingers. I threw it back down when my nerves got to me and walked out the back door, threw the garden and flopped down in a chair on the porch.
‘Ummm….. Myers’ aloud to watch M 15+ movies right?’ I asked Steph.
‘What you freak she’s only 2 and ½ years old!’ she screamed at me and ran into the house.
‘You’re kidding me right?’ my mum asked me.
‘Yah! I mean you seriously believed me?’
Dad slapped me over the head lightly.
‘How are things going with the “unfinished business”?’ I asked trying to keep the jealously out of my voice.
‘Good! They should be back soon now that you mention it!’ he said happily brushing a strand of hair out of my eye.
I sighed deeply, ‘Why didn’t the wake me up to go with them?’
‘Your brothers needed to do this by themselves.’ Was my mums excuse. But I knew the real reason, ‘Your to fragile. Yes you can fight your one of the best fighters but we can’t bear to see you get hurt. You’re a GIRL!’
‘Whatever.’ I mumbled and walked back inside.
I cracked an egg, threw in some flour, sugar, butter and milk into a bowl and beat it like total freak. I placed the mixture into a frying pan, and cooked the pancakes to perfection.
I just sat down and ate my first pancake when my brothers walked in.
‘DADDY!’ Myer screamed and ran into Simmons open arms.
‘Thanks sissy!’ Alex said taking a handful of pancakes.
‘She’s awake!’ Daniel said scruff ling my hair and taking the rest of the pancakes.
‘Where’s Thomas?’ I asked throwing my plate into the sink and turning to an apple.
‘Here,’ Thomas said walking into the room with a person infrount of him with a bag over his head and his hands tied behind him.
Thomas threw the dude on his knees in the center of the living room, as Steph to Myer up stairs.
Myer stopped at the beginning of the second flight of stairs and ran back down to me. ‘Aren’t you coming Arny Cakey? Where going to play tea parties,’ she put her little cute face on with puppy dog eyes.
‘Oh! You better hurry up then because you don’t want mummy to eat all the cookies,’ I said taking another bite from my apple.
She gasped and ran up the stairs.
I walked over to the guy on the floor. They had taken the bag off his head and were beating him. I came closer and nearly chocked on my apple.
‘STOP IT!!!!’ I screamed defending Jackson and taking and accidental blow from Alex and Thomas in the head and stomach.
I hit the ground – hard – I blinked a couple of times then I fell into complete darkness.
