Beep, beep! My alarm went off as I began to open my eyes.
"Ugh, I hate school." I thought to myself.
A couple minutes later, I got up and grabbed three pieces of paper and rushed downstairs. I had smelt burnt toast and saw raw eggs on the stove, along with steam boiling off from a gray pan.
Then As I began to look into the kitchen, I began to reached over to one of the open cabinets with two plates. Behind me was my Mom pouring a cup of coffee.
"What are you doing down here so early?" Mom asked. I didn't look at her when she asked.
On the sheeted paper it had a grid of squares and blank boxes, with written words and clues. I begin to write the words in horizontal lines all over the grid sheeted paper.
"Hey honey what are you doing, what are you writing?"
"Oh, It's a crossword puzzle, my favorite activity." Then she asks,"Can I see it?" So I hand my mother the work I have done.
My mother looked at it as she was biting her lip, and took a drink of her coffee, then handed it back to me.
"Wow, pretty creative there Honey."
"Thanks." I said nervously. So I hesitated for a second, my mom looks distracted.
"Hey, where's Dad?"
