Hello and welcome to Writing Wednesday! Here we go,
*buzz* It’s my alarm. I reach over and tap it off, then get up out of bed. I didn’t sleep after Ben came. I was barely asleep before he came, anyways. I walk over to my bathroom, change out of my night-clothes to my day-clothes, and brush my hair. I pull it into a bun because i feel like that’s appropriate for the day.
“Hi Alec, mother, and father,” i say as i walk down the stairs. I always wake after them. Their scores today are 740 (mother), 810 (father), and 478 (brother). Mine is still 488.
“Good morning Rose,” they say in unison. I sit at the table next to Alec.
“Why don’t we share our dreams?” asks mother. That’s usually father’s line! We all nod.
“I had a dream that someone tripped me whilst i walked down the street.” says Alec.
“That’s a very mean dream, Raymond. Why do you think it happened?” says father.
“I don’t know. Maybe because i saw it happen to someone or i think someone will do it to me?” says Alec. He then studies his fork.
“Maybe, Raymond. Rose?” asks mother.
“I didn’t have a dream last night,” i say. They all nod and then we walk out the door.
“Morning, Rose.” says Jerry. I wave and walk over. We walk to school together every morning. He holds out his hand and i see his wrist. The numbers. We are still the same. I place my numbers on top of his. It’s kind of like our secret handshake. We start walking down the street.
And, just when i think i’m safe, i see him.
Ben is walking down the street in my direction.Not just in my direction, towards me.
“Good morning, Rose.” he says once he’s close enough.
“Good morning, Benjamin,” I say. God, i called him Benjamin. He just nods and walks away. Just like that. For some stupid reason, i thought today would be different. But, it isn’t. Just. Like. That.
