“Wake Up” Madison’s mother says joyfully. “I need you to take the kids to school”

Another date I suppose. Madison rolled away from her mother and covered her head with a pillow.

“Come on your going to make me late for my date.” She said annoyed. Madison rolled over to see her pulling on a tight dress that didn’t leave much to the imagination. “Plus I’m your mother and you do what I say.”

Madison pulled back her covers and walked over to her dresser thinking

Huh mother? Giving birth doesn’t make you a mother because that’s all you did.

Brushing her silky black hair watching her brown eyes stare back at her Madison felt used.

Madison mothered her younger siblings, they even called her mommy and the most adorable stick families for her. Madison left the room and went downstairs to the kitchen and started making bowls of cereal. I would cook but I don’t have the time.

I need to get a job and save up. Mom didn’t pay the light bill so she could go partying like she was a twenty year old with nothing else to do with her money. She didn’t deserved to be called that.

The lights suddenly went off. I thought I had at least a week to get the money according to mom. The kids came running down the stairs.

“No running down the stairs” Madison warned. “You could break your leg our something and suffer agonizing pain for months... Even years.”

Madison’s little brother, Mitchell, asked “what does a-gonizing mean?”

“Well it’s hard to explain but it’s like a dinosaur eating your arm but it only stops with medicine that’s hard to get.” Madison said hoping that would be good enough.

“Okay.” Mitchell spoke.

“Hurry up I have to take you all to school and it’s already...” Madison’s voice trailed off as she turned and looked at the clock. “7:00 am” Madison turned back to her siblings. “So hurry up or that dinosaur is going to eat you when you sleep. With that Mitchell continued to eat his breakfast and Madison went upstairs to get ready for school.

****

Last class of the day.

Madison made the finishing touches to her essay trying to ignore the curious stares she was getting from her classmates. Did Mr. Hundley say he was no longer accepting essays? Uhh hurry up maybe he’ll still take it.

Madison stood from her seat and walked toward Mr. Hundley’s desk and placed her essay in the class paper basket when Madison turned to leave Mr.Hundley cleared his throat. What did I do now? You haven’t even read it yet. Madison turns back to Mr.Hundley only to spot she noticed Grady Gorelli winking at her. As if. The nerve so people had. Once Madison stood in front of Mr.Hundley she waited for it. For a moment he said nothing as he scanned her essay. Say something already. “This is quite an essay Ms. Hall” was all Mr.Hundley said. You have to be kidding me. I know you’re only twenty-four but I know you have a brain in there somewhere. Madison smiled faintly and began to exit the room when he cleared his throat again, someone chuckled behind her and Madison turned back around and faced Mr.Hundley with a forced smile on her face that lasted all of three seconds.

“Before you so rudely began to exit the room,” Mr.Hundley slowly let the words spill from his mouth. This is why I hate people. You’re just like your students. “I was going to ask you if you would be interested in an essay competition.” Mr. Hundley said. Madison cocked her head to the side and thought about it. “Why would I be interested?” Madison spoke obviously surprising Mr.Hundley. Stop looking at me like I just farted rainbows I can talk, I just choose not to waste my breath on any of the idiots in this class.

“It’s a great opportunity and colleges would love to see that you even entered” Mr.Hundley said before he continued. “Besides there’s a 20,000 dollar prize if you come in first.” Madison looked up to a smiling Mr.Hundley. I guess he saw my ears prick up. “I’ll do it but I really need to go study for an AP test.” Madison spoke as he scribbled down her email. Mr.Hundley was ecstatic, taking my email. “I will let you know all the details.” He said just as the bell rang and Madison was not going to stay in this room any longer than she had to. She hated high school, people were so fake and there was always drama. In the hallway Madison stopped at her locker and tried to open it but it wasn’t working.

Someone was standing behind her and they gently pushed her to the side. It was Grady. This asshole again. “This one is mine.” He said then pointed the one now in front of me. Why does he always have to be around when my brain is farting?

“Uhh.... Thanks for telling me.” Madison said sheepishly. She turned the knob and opened the locker. Madison grabbed her books and put them in her backpack.

“No problem, baby doll.” Grady says to her then winked at her. Ewww. Madison decided to ignore him and walked away to the parking lot where her ride was supposed to be waiting for her.

Instead Kyra was waiting for her she was kissing some tall blond guy and had no idea Madison existed. Madison decided to walk and began to hear steps behind her put she kept walking. She reached a boutique she always wanted to shop in. Those girls looked so happy, blossoming under the attention from both of her parents, never having to worry about money. Madison wanted to hate them but she couldn’t.

Madison looked away and spotted a wanted ad for a part time nanny. This is perfect. Madison grabbed and ad when she decided to rip up the rest of the ads and take them with her.
