My alarm disturbed yet another one of my happy dreams of Wonder Boy.

"Ugh! Crappy freak!" I yelled, hitting the off button with all my strength. I yawned then rolled out of bed, hitting the floor with a thump. "Ouch." I mumbled then stood up.

I tiredly stumbled to the refrigerator and pulled out a chocolate Slim Fast. I chuged it then let out a belch. I threw it across the room, it landing in the trash can. With more energy now, I walked normaly to the sink and brushed my teeth. Then I opened the bathroom door and closed it behind me. I was about to go potty, when I saw Tahsa sleeping in the bathtub. What the hell was she doing?

"Tahsa, Tahsa, wake up!" I soud loudly while shaking her.

"Huh? Wha? Taylor?" she asked, confused as she woke up.

"No, this isn't your lover boy, it's Lindsay." I informed.

"Oh. Hi Lindsay," she greeted.

"Hi. Why on earth did you fall asleep in the bath tub?" I asked.

"I couldn't sleep so I came in here. Ever since I was kid, I've been able to relax in these things. I don't understand why I can't fall asleep in that friggen thing," she expalined.

"Try flipping the matress, it helps." I mentioned.


"The matress is uncomfortable coz they haven't been flipped in a long time. I had to do the same to mine when I first came here."

"Oh. I knew that, really."

"Whatever. Get outta here, I need to pee."

"I didn't need to know that Linz,"

"I don't care, just beat it!"

"Okay okay Ms. Cranky,"

Tash finally moved her butt and was outta the bathroom. I did my business and then took a quick shower. I came out, a towel wrapped around me. Tahsa didn't mind since we were both girls, but she seemed shocked about something.

"Lindsay, how could you possibly think you're fat?" she asked.

"Low self esteem." I answered, getting out my flares, blue camoflauge baby tee, and a blue bandana.

I put on all my clothes and then my brown boots.

"Hey, cool outfit. I like the bandana," Tahsa complimented, taking her sheets off her bed so she could flip the matress.

"Thanks. Cool pj's Mickey," I joked, noticing her pj's were covered with the famous mouse ears.

"Thanks, but I'm not Mickey!" she returned.

I decided to be funny and chimmed while I acted like a cheerleader, "Hey Mickey you're so fine! You're so fine you blow my mind hey Mickey! Hey Mickey!"

She threw her pilow at my head and I just laughed and slung my back pack over my shoulders.

"Bye Tahsa," I called as I walked out the door.

"Bye retard!" she called back as I shut the door behind me.

I rolled my eyes and walked down the hall. Ahead of me, I saw Zac walking, holing his backpack by the handle in his left hand. I smiled as I got an idea.

I sprinted down the hall towards him and jumped on his back. He yelled in suprise and almost fell forward. He held me up and turned to see who was hanging on his back.

"Hi there!" I greeted entusiastically.

"Hi! How ya doin?" he returned, just as enthisiaticlly.

"Good, how's bout you?"

"I'm doin good. Hey, can you please get off my back? I need to carry my back pack," he asked nicely.

"Sure," I agreed, then slid off him.

Zac put on his backpack and we walked to the building together. Class wasn't too exciting. He collected our homework and gave us our assignment for Friday when the next class was.

As I was walking to the door, Zac pulled on my shoulder to get my attention. I turned and faced him.

"Wanna go get lunch with me at Wendy's?" he asked.

"Sorry, I can't. I have to go somewhere, it's important." I answered with sorrow in my voice. I wished I could go with him.

"Oh, okay. Well, I'll see you later then," Zac regarded. He looked dissapointed.

"Bye," I called.

We went our seperate ways and I hopped into my car and drove to the hospital. I was going to stay there until I had to leave for drama class.


I laughed to myself at Lindsay's recent hyperness. Then I pulled out some decent clothes and went and took a 15 minutes shower. Record timing for me.

I pulled on my black baggy levis and a Hanson T-shirt. Tay was gonna get a kick out of this one. I smiled and then pulled on my yellow vans over my plain white sock before heading back into the bathroom.

I brushed my teeth and washed my face before brushing my hair. For once, I decided to blow dry it. It took me an hour because my hair was so thick, but I FINALLY got it done. I pulled it back into a ponytail and grabbed my backpack on the way out the door with my wallet and keys.

I knocked on Taylor's door on my way down the hall but no one answered. I twisted the knob, thinking that he hadn't heard me. It was locked. He must have been out.

I walked down to the parking lot and got in my car. I shut the door and placed my bag in the passengers seat. I opened it and took out a note pad and my neon purple feather pen. I started composing a list of things to do. I had to stop by the bank to pick up the money to repay Taylor AND I needed to get some new clothes. Just because. And then I needed to get my film developed before class and stop and get something to eat. I sighed inwardly at the list.

I started the car and headed towards Kroger's. I had noticed that they had a film devolpment section when Linz rammed into my butt ever so politely. After I dropped off the camera, I spent the hour that it took for the film to develop at Deb's. I bought some cool scrunci's and a couple t-shirts. Nothing special. Just Clothes.

I went back to Krogers and picked up the film before depositing it in my backpack so that I wouldn't lose it. I headed over ot the bank to get the money.

I looked at the bank staff person and made a silent thank you to the One Above that it wasn't that woman that I had seen last time. I took out 2 thousand, despite the weird look that this woman was giving me and headed back to my car.

I made it back to the University just in time. I handed my Professor the picture on my way to sit down and he nodded in approval before adding it ot hte growing stack on his desk.

I looked for Taylor in the crowd but didn't see him anywhere so I sat down in a desk on the second row.

I took out the stuff I would need for class and sat there drumming my fingers on my desk impatiently.

I am not sure what i was waiting for more, Taylor to get his butt in there or class to start. Probably the first.

Soon the class started and I puzzled over Taylor's absence for just a couple minutes before copying hte new assignment and listening to the Professor.
