Chapter 1:Boredom & homework
Lina’s mom thought, “Okay, Lina’s homework.. It says to describe your child in three words... good or bad traits, uhm.. She’s... joyful, at least when she’s not mad and explosive, very artsy I’d say. But, I can’t say youngest in the family because, well that just sounds weird. Hmm... Ah that’s it! I’ll put that she’s... well, disorganized. Not the nicest but.. No more ideas left.” She’s currently sitting in her room, bored as ever, not having the time of her life.
She is sitting in her room just slowly drinking water out of her cup. Then not so suddenly, her mom walks in and gives her the peanut butter toast that she asked for. Her mom thought she was unhappy because she said no to a sleepover with her friend. Then her mom looked at Lina’s room and thought, “My gosh! Lina’s room! I should ask her to clean it…” Lina had thought to herself, “She must be annoyed and ticked off because I was begging for a sleepover yesterday. Ugh... just mom. But then Lina just asked, “What’s wrong with that?”
She thought about what happened yesterday with the sleepover, but with her cat Kittles knocking over couch pillows and rubbing her shoulder, she felt better. Lina then moved out to the living room, sat on the sofa, and ate her peanut butter toast as she began to play with Kittles. Then, her sister Kaylee came downstairs and gave her a careless (yet somehow peeved) glance.
Chapter 2: Joy of Fries
“OH SHOOT, I forgot I said I’d give Lina a huge thing of fries from fast food if she stayed up till 12 AM. I bet she did, BUT NO USE TO LOSE HOPE, I BET SHE FORGOT. Uhh….well.. More of that later..But what’s up with her room? It’s never been that messy in her whole life, has she gone crazy for not sleeping?” Kaylee thought to herself.
Lina thought about yesterday, “Dang, I should say sorry to mom I regret it now.. I’ll think about maybe cleaning my room or doing some extra chores for her.. I feel bad...” As she just remembered, She shouted out to her sister, “KAYLEE, I STAYED UP AFTER MIDNIGHT! YOU OWE ME SOME FRIES!!” She felt pretty good, “Man, awesome! I’m so happy! Fries for this afternoon? YES!” She thought to herself.
Lina got SO jumpy, “Uh-oh .. PLAN TWO...SAY I NEED PROOF, because I can’t just whip some out.. And I don’t have the money to buy them just because MOM won’t give me allowance any more,UGH...THAT’S IT, PLAN THREE!” Kaylee thought to herself.
She said to Lina, “Okay I’ll get you them, be right back Lina!” She replied. Kaylee thought “I’ll just draw a lot of fries because I can just name it, FAST FOOD FRIES FOR LINA! then BAM!” Lina was thinking to herself “YES, TIME FOR FRIES!” Hopefully I’ll get sauces! ..yum!”
Then, Kaylee thought, “This is too easy, I should honestly have more people like me! Who don’t really do the real deal! Also what would mom say about this.. She’d probably just laugh and say “Well Lina, next time you might need to be a bit more specific, haha!”
Then, she rushed into my room to get her notebook and pencil, “Alright! Time to draw” Kaylee thought. Lina then saw what Kaylee was doing, and she was between doing.“I NEED TO GET MOM” and “It’s just some fries not all that much cool down.” Lina decided she would tell their mom.
Chapter 3: MOM!
She then shouted, “UHH MOM COME DOWN HERE, KAYLEE’S BEING MEAN!!” Her mom rushed down with shock on her face that Lina had tears in her eyes. Oh no, Lina! What’s going on here? Kaylee.. She said not in a pleasant tone. Kaylee then explained the fix.
“So Lina you’re just being extra… privileged today, just because your sister didn’t give you some fries? C’mon seriously? That we can buy for 4 to 5 bucks, and you cry about it?”
Her mom said, “And Kaylee, you too! Lying isn’t okay. You know that. Don’t set a bad example.” she added. Her Mom thought, “So much for just trying Lina’s room under control, my gosh!”
After a few moments of thinking, their mother said, Y’know what Kaylee? First, no phone for a today and tomorrow. Lina, say sorry for being extra and hand me Kaylees phone to me. Kaylee said sorry to Lina and then gave her mom her phone before Lina could.
Chapter 4: Cupcakes
Then after that two days of waiting for Kaylee she asked her mom if she could take her and Lina out for cupcakes, her mom replies, “Sure, Kaylee you’ve been pretty helpful these past two days!” Then, as they go out for cupcakes this afternoon, Kaylee and Lina thank their mother and when they got there, cupcakes. “Enjoy!” Their mother said, as they bit into their cupcakes, Kaylee said, “It was worth it!” then Lina agreed. “Man Lina BETTER clean her room for this she wasn’t helping this week! Kids with their methods these past years, wish I understood ‘em. I mean, man that room was messy last time I checked, God!” After they ate cupcakes, they went to the park and Lina and Kaylee went to the swings while their mom just sat on the bench texting. Kaylee then stopped swinging, and went on to the play structure and went down the slide. Lina looked more happy than usual, but Kaylee on the other hand.. wasn't looking very happy. She looked rather glum, almost more like disappointed.
5.Going out to Buy
She asked her mom if they could stop at the store to get a birthday present for her bestest friend, which was named Luna. it wasn't odd to her that it reminded her of Lina, because their names are one letter apart, also because of their similar hair, and eyes oddly just for being a friend it seemed as if Luna looked more like Lina’s sister rather than Kaylee, being her REAL sister. Her mom says yes to going to the store. As they go into their car and start it up, Lina thinks about getting HER friend a gift, because she overheard their little chat. Lina takes off her shoes and Kaylee copies, “Hey, Kaylee why did you copy me?” She asked. Kaylee then reptiles annoyingly “Well because it’s not the law LINA.” Lina rolled her eyes, “how dramatic LINA.” Kaylee said with some sass. They go to the store Kaylee keeps blabbing and just trying to make her more annoyed. Kaylee gets her a super cute plush, extra soft, kitten, donut holding, BEAUTIFUL, plushie. On the other hand, Lina get her only friend a small trinket such as a rose gold bell, and, a small necklace. She didn’t feel bad for getting small gifts nor did Kaylee feel guilty for getting bigger gifts.
6.Disappointed but Great
Their mom paid for them and walked out looking at Lina, Lina didn't feel normal, she felt weird, worried. After they got home Kaylee was jumpy and spastic. She was so excited to get Luna’s present wrapped. Lina could wait a thousand years it looked like. She worried if her only friend, Lia, she was worried like crazy that she wouldn't like her presents, “A rose gold bell and a small necklace? Who would only want small things for their birthday?” she questioned herself. It turns out, the next day Kaylee gave her friend the present that she got her friend Luna, she loved it so much that she held it the whole school day. Lina waited weeks for her friends birthday to come, at last, 2 weeks later it became August 8th day, out of school. Lina came to her birthday party and had cake and icecream, and played, then it was present time, she had a load of them, her present was opened last of course. Lian noticed that she second that she opened and was it, she had the loudest shriek of all the presents she opened, she was proud of her gift. After they got in the car ready to leave, Kaylee said, “Lina, you had the best gift there. Most of her gifts were all clothes; I mean, how boring.” “Thanks, I knew it was good all along..” She lied.
7.Early Gift and Happiness
She had also thought “Well.. I didn't know all along I thought it was well, weird, tiny, and not good enough for my only friend..” after they arrived home, she felt so happy because she got a surprise from her mom, which was a new cat plushie! It was supposed to be a birthday gift but her mom decided to give it to her today. “Thanks Mom!” she said, “Your welcome, enjoy the gift!” she replies. As she plays with her new plush, she thought of doing something for her mom, “Maybe chores, dishes, fold my clothes correctly, hang my clothes up, clean my room and keep it clean for a week, anything like that.. I’ll decide on something different, I’ll spend extra time with her and I’ll be nice about it.” she said out loud in her room. After a short amount of time, it was Lina’s birthday, she had a very pastel party. She only invited Lia, she got her the best gift, even though it was only her Kaylee and her mom, she still felt happy. Her gifts were a pastel trendy water bottle which was from her mom, a necklace from Lia, and some kawaii kitty cat ears that were from Kaylee. She was so happy later that night, because she loved all of her gifts very dearly, and she got to stay up later than normal, AND lastly she got to eat her favorite dinner in her room, her mom allowed her to have food in the room because she use to not be allowed to. She claims that this was the best day, as well as birthday, in the 9 years of her very own life.
