“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.

Jennifer Kane Martin: I am a high school teacher, and the dialogue and inner thoughts are PERFECT. However, the lack of capitalization, punctuation, and the typos are distracting. Don't let these get in the way of a potentially good story.

Animeviewer: It is one of the best stories I've ever read. This story will have you riding a roller coaster of emotions and nearly dying to know what happens next.You will get very attached to the characters and in my case I relate well with some of their very traumatic or emotional experiences, Just Juliet f...

JulieJeanette: I'm only on chapter nine, but so far I am loving this story!. I am on pins and needles hoping that they find good men in their lives by the end. I am American and so the British tone and lingo ('knickers,' 'sod it' ) of the book is very appealing. I had to find out how much '12 stone' was by goog...

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

Rebeccaseal: This was an almost perfect story that I would recommend to anyone. The only thing I would work on is painting a more realistic picture of Haiathiel. Somehow the environment seemed limited, and the land itself a bit unfinished. This can be solved simply by added descriptions to people and places. ...

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

Jazie Alyssa Flores: There may have been many grammar errors. But OMG this story had me on an emotional rollercoaster ride. I loved every bit of it. The relationship Sydney and Cameron had was beautiful. I loved how it wasn't a typical love story but revolved around a growing friendship and the drama that surrounded ...

graceeming: I LOVE this book, it has the setting that I just love and the way the characters are built through the whole story is something else I love. I 100% recommend this to anyone, you'll be surprised about this. I was, and this is my go-to book.

Roxie: This was a very well thought out story and I greatly enjoyed it! I don't usually go for these kinds of stories because of clichés and what not, nut this was great. There were a few typos and grammatical errors, but that is to be expected. While I knew the overall end of the story It was engaging ...

ianwatson: The comedy is original and genuinely funny, I have laughed out loud many times reading this book. But the story and the plot are also really engaging. The opening two or three chapters seem quite character-dense but they all soon come to life and there is no padding, filling or wasted time readin...

evanhoverly: I absolutely loved this book and the characters in it. The story would often introduce unexpected events keeping it interesting.The book could use a good proofreading before it gets published, but otherwise a good read!

gilbertgg: Not a bad book, but the editing needs to be stepped up a bit. The plot seems to work and kept me entertained, though.

Karl12: This story is written in a fun, amusing way, which caught my attention from the very beginning. This, so to speak, “free” style of writing is something I really enjoyed. It gives a great flow to the story, makes it interesting, easy to read and keeps it dynamic. I loved that both Nate’s and Laney...
