A Night In a Shell

by Kevin Erazo J | Score: 5350

I knew my mother was going to hear me. I heard the sirens in the distance. I was out of luck. She was here. I tried to call my dad but he couldn't answer. I tried running home but she was in a car. I wasn't fast enough. I wish I had my bangle bracelet. Could I really be this bad at life? I called my friend Roman. He picked up! But, I didn't hear him. I heard a strange noise. It was like, A cicada. That noise that a cicada makes. I think my mind is messing with me. I was relieved when I ate my last banana. It was as yellow as the sun and as tasty as an apple. I knew I always loved bananas. I stopped worrying about everything that I just got on the game. I turned on my Xbox and started playing. A few hours passed and I received a phone call. It was my dad. He went to prison. Now I know why he wasn't answering my phone calls. I called a pizza hut next to my house. I called a diligent delivery driver and put on a button shirt. I could hear him pull around the driveway. I put my shoes on and went looked outside. That wasn't a car. It was him. He brought coldness and it now felt like winter. 6 months later. It was now winter. This winter was very long and extremely cold. I went to to the grocery store and met a childish shop assistant. He was so annoying. I was just trying to get my groceries and a bar of soap.
