β€œNique, wake up. He’s coming up here” I heard Amira say faintly. I immediately sprung out of bed. I heard aggressive knocking on the door and I turned my neck quickly in the direction of the door. β€œDid you guys get up?” my dad asked. β€œYeah,” I said but my voice cracked. β€œNo you didn’t,” he said. β€œFuck” I said under my voice. I opened the door to see my dad giving me a death glare. I don’t understand why he cares so much when I sleep in.

β€œYou guys never go to bed early that’s why you can never get up in the morning,” he said. Okay.....? I stayed silent and he just stood there glaring at me. After a few seconds, he walked away. I scoffed and rolled my eyes as I closed the door. I went to grab my phone off my nightstand. I saw about 7 Instagram notifications.

I swiped to the left and responded to their messages. After like ten minutes, I decided to go and get ready. I was gonna head to Ash’s house around 3. I jumped off the bed and put my socks back on. I refuse to go to sleep with them on. I said good morning to Amira and Ilyasa then I went to the bathroom. I brushed my teeth and took a long shower.

I was almost about to get out when someone started BANGING on the door. Who da fuq.... ”Why are you still in the shower,” my dad said angrily. This man stays bothering me. β€œI’m done,” I said, trying not to sound rude. I scoffed again and got out of the shower. I walked back to my room and lazily put on some clothes. I just got sweatpants and a grey hoodie.

I texted my mom letting her know I was gonna head over to Ash’s house for the day. She told me I had to clean the kitchen before I could go anywhere so I headed downstairs. β€œGood morning,” I said side-eyeing, my dad. He just ignored my remark and hummed. I just held in my anger and walked past him.

I then cleaned the kitchen and ate my breakfast. β€œBye. Make sure you be nice to your brother” my dad said while putting on his shoes. β€œTell Amira. I’m not gonna be here” I said wiping down the counter.β€œWhere are you going?” he asked me. β€œI’m going to Ash’s house. Ma already said I could go if I cleaned the kitchen” I said side-eyeing him again. β€œHmm. Okay,” he said. This dude....

I finished cleaning up the kitchen and I went back upstairs. I made my bed and picked up all the stuff on the ground. I went to my closet, grabbed my shoes, my bag, and my wallet. I checked the time and it was 3:56. Where did all the time go? I put my shoes on and said β€œbye” to my siblings. I stepped out and locked the door. I was just about to walk across the street when I felt someone tap my shoulder. I paused my music and turned around to see what I assumed is the boy from yesterday.

β€œHi...?” I said. β€œHey” he smiled at me. He had a nice smile. Pearly white and straight too. He had dark skin and stood a few inches above me. Not to the point where I had to look up to see his face, but I could tell he was taller than me. β€œThis is the part where you tell me your name,” I said. β€œOh sorry. The name’s Denzel” he said while rubbing the back of his neck in embarrassment. β€œNice name. I’m Monique” I smiled. β€œNice” he replied. β€œThanks. Well, I gotta get going but I’ll see you later?” I said. β€œYeah okay. Bye Monique” he said waving at me. I waved then put my headphones back on and kept walking.
