After the fight at the park Kuki was just looking for some peace and quiet but she didn't find that at home with Mushi's Pop and Indie Rock music blaring down the halls.
Kuki(Sighing) Ugh I should've known better than to show my face on Pop and Indie day, man where can a girl get some peace and quiet around here?
Mushi(Screaming) Baby It's all right I took a sip of something something better something something.
Kuki(Huffing) If you're going to sing badly do it right Mushi, the words are Baby it's all right I took a sip of something poison better hold on tight geez.
Kuki knew Foster The People's Helena Beat by heart because every Pop and Indie Day it was always the first and last song played.
Mushi(Holding her ears) WHATTTTTTTT?
Mushi gulped quickly turning her radio off knowing Kuki in her mood.
Kuki(Rubbing her temples) Thank you Moosh, so where are mom and dad?
Mushi: Getting KFC for dinner and also some videos because you're babysitting me tonight.
Kuki(Moaning) Ohhhhhhhh man I completely forgot that was tonight.
Mushi: Well mom and dad didn't their talking about a hotel room for the night you know the whole nine yards.
Kuki: Well let's make this real easy on ourselves Mushi, you can watch your kiddie movies with the positive life lessons and I'm going to soak in a giant bathtub with bubbles up to my neck.
Mushi: They don't always have a positive life lesson, and I hope you're going to be watching me during the whole giant bathtub thing.
Kuki(Changing her shirt) Fine I'll just take a bath when you're tucked safely into bed.
The front door slammed and Mushi ran to it knowing how to get whatever she wanted from her mom and dad.
Mushi(Smiling) Hi mama hi dada so where's dinner?
Mrs. Sanban: Your dad's getting it and you young lady are in a lot of trouble.
Mushi(Her smile fading) I am?
Mrs. Sanban(Nodding) Why didn't you tell us your report card was so bad young lady?
Kuki(Gliding into the kitchen) Mushi got a bad report card?
Mushi(Sticking her tongue put at Kuki) I'm sure you got a bad report card before Kuki Elloise Sanban.
Mrs. Sanban(Shaking her head) Not this bad, in fact Kuki never had an F in her life.
Kuki(Gasping) An F man are you in for it, F isn't even in the Sanban alphabet we just go from E to G.
Mr. Sanban: Soups on and Mushi you are grounded until further notice, maybe you should read books seeing you like telling fairy tales.
Mushi: All right maybe I told a smidget of a lie but that doesn't make me Mother Goose does it?
Mrs. Sanban: One little smidget of a lie turned into your dad and I getting a divorce, Mushi Alice Sanban there is no such thing as a smidget of a lie.
Mushi(Nodding) Uh huh see Mrs. Camby asked if I did my reading homework and I hate to read, so I told her I was lonely because Kuki wasn't there anymore.
Kuki: How did I get involved in this?
Mushi: So Mrs. Camby asked where Kuki went and I told her you and daddy were getting custody of Kuki and I while your papers were being drawn up for a divorce.
Mrs. Sanban: You can't even imagine how embarassed I was when we got to the school for parent teacher conferences and Mrs. Camby's eyes bore into mine.
Mushi: So did she tell you how much of a good artist I am? My finger paintings always get good words from her she says I'm very imaginative.
Mr. Sanban: Well listen and listen good Mother Goose, the fairy tales stay at home from now on and until we say all's you're going to do is homework, eat, drink, shower, use the bathroom, breathe, and sleep.
Mrs. Sanban: I think that covers everything and Kuki you can do whatever you like tonight, the television and DVD players all yours tonight and how on Earth did you get so muddy?
Kuki: I was at the park and Hoagie Gilligan and Abby Lincoln were handcuffed to each other and they were arguing which turned to shoving, which in turn led to me getting shoved by accident and pushed into the lake.
Mrs. Sanban: All right so after a shower leave your clothes downstairs in the hamper and I'll get to them tomorrow.
Mushi: But what if Kuki has a party and I'm not able to sleep until 3:00 in the morning?
Mrs. Sanban: Kuki knows better than that Mushi, she's not a rule breaker or fibber like you on her best day.
Mushi(Pouting) Hmph Fine then I'll just misbehave so much that Kuki will dread the next time she has to babysit me.
Kuki: You know Mother Goose for someone who hates to read you certainly use big words of which I'm sure you don't understand.
Mushi(Sticking her tongue out at Kuki) Now excuse me but I've got to check my rations to see if their ready for ruin the babysitters life tonight.
Kuki: I hope you have some good stuff because it's going to take a lot to get me to shriek, shiver, squirm, or scream tonight.
Mushi grumbled stupid older sister under her breath and stomped up the stairs to her room.
Mrs. Sanban: Kahn I think we should maybe call off our date night tonight, I mean we can't leave poor Kuki all alone with an obviously tortous, angry, tantrum throwing, five year old can we?
Kuki(Ushering her mom upstairs) Out of the question mom, you go get ready while dad sets the table and gets all the food ready for dinner, after that the both of you are going out to dinner, out for some dancing, and to a hotel for the night no questions asked.
Mrs. Sanban: But what am I going to-
Kuki(Answering the unfinished question) The black spaghetti strapped dress you wore to Grandma's funeral, I mean you got lucky that night what's to say you won't tonight in it?
Mihn Sanban grinned and ruffled Kuki's hair then ran off to get ready for her date night with her husband.
Kuki: So dad what are you planning on wearing out tonight because if you'd like suggestions the pinstriped suit does weird thing to mom, she will do anything to you in that suit.
Mihn Sanban: MUSHI ALICE SANBAN GET YOUR TAIL IN HERE RIGHT NOW AND I DON'T WANT TO HEAR SORRY BECAUSE YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU'RE APOLOGIZING FOR.
Kuki and Kahn ran to her parents bedroom to find all the clothes including the black spaghetti strapped dress and pinstriped suit ripped to shreds and Mushi tiptoed in with a grin on her face and scissors in her back pocket.
Mihn: Well this is just great now I have nothing to wear tonight and neither does your father all because Mother Goose went on a clothes ripping rampage.
Mushi(Fidgeting) I- never- did- this- mama- I- mean- give- me- a- little- credit.
Kuki(Sniffing) I smell a fibber and I can smell one from a million miles away, plus she's fidgeting and I like to call her fidget the lying fidget.
Mihn Sanban(Gabbing Mushi's arm) You mean to tell me that this isn't your purple sweater miraculously not destroyed by the clothes fairy.
Kuki: Well that certainly looks like her sweater.
Mushi(Fidgeting) No- mine- is- a- brighter- shade- of- purple- with- patches- of- grass- stains- dirt- and- sour- milk.
Kahn: I thought that was Kuki's sweater, I mean you always complain about having to clean her sweater.
Mihn(Angrily sighing) It is Kuki's sweater and Kooks good call on the lying fidget.
Kuki(Beaming) Well babysitting her since birth has taught me a whole mess of Mushi Sanbanisms, like when she's angry she'll throw the closest thing she can pick up, and every Friday is Pop and Indie Music day.
Mihn: All right Mother Goose you're going to tell us straight up why you decided to destroy all our clothes.
Mushi(Fidgeting) I'm- telling- you- it- wasn't- me- maybe- it- was- Kuki- out- to- get- me- into- more- trouble.
Mihn: Fine then tell me it wasn't you without fidgeting.
Mushi(Trying to stand still) It- wasn't- me- mama- honest.
Kuki(Swiping the scissors from Mushi's back pocket) And we have the clothes murder weapon, man I would make a really good lawyer.
Mihn(Snapping the scissors) Well what do you know clothes material all over these scissors, Kahn check her pockets because my jewelery is missing also.
Mushi shrieked knowing how angry her dad was and also knew that her dad might get angrier if she didn't do as he asked.
Kahn(Tapping his foot angrily in front of Mushi) We can do this one of two ways Alice, one you empty those pockets yourself or two I empty them for you.
Mushi slowly shoved her hands into all her pockets and pulled out all the jewelry Mihn was missing.
Mushi(Pouting) Can I go now?
Kahn and Mihn: No
Kuki: I could've told you that Moosh, you totally redecorated their clothes to where there not to be worn again and you want to leave? get real little sister.
Kahn: We still have time we can go to the mall and buy new clothes, go out for a nice dinner tonight, go out for some dancing, and get a hotel room for the night.
Mihn: Kuki you still have that hemming badge from the Girl Scouts right?
Kuki nodded finding a needle and black thread making quick work of Mihn's dress and Kahn's suit.
Kuki(Unfolding the clothes) There good as new now mom get in the shower, dad get the dinner table set and the food ready, me I'll watch Mother Goose to make sure she doesn't cut the clothes again.
Mushi: Can I at least watch TV for an hour, I mean it's like saying goodbye to an old friend.
Kahn and Mihn: No
Kuki: Again I could've told you that.
Mushi huffed angrily and stomped from her parents room slamming her bedroom door in the process.
Kahn: I'll go finish the table setting, and if you need or want anything just tell me or your mother and we'll be sure to get it on our way out of town.
Kuki: Can I get candy?
Kahn(Throwing Kuki a bag) Done and done and by the way Mr. Daniels says hello.
Kuki(Licking her lips) He is the best candy store owner ever.
Kahn ran off to finish setting the table as Kuki stood guard at the door making sure nobody with a purple sweater and a pout got past.
Two hours later Kahn and Mihn were both ready to go and were going through the emergency numbers with Kuki.
Kuki: 911 Yea mom I know the emergency number, if Mushi acts up call you wherever you are, if I can't get a hold of you then call Grandma I think that's everything.
Mihn: Money is in the coffee can and I know how you feel about fried chicken so order what you like and have a great night, I rented you some videos too so I think you have your whole night planned out.
Kuki(Nodding) And what about Mushi?
Mihn: She doesn't take one step out of her room unless she's getting food, a drink, taking a shower which she's due for one tonight, and using the facilities.
Kuki(Saluting Mihn) You're the boss mom, and as for snacks I have Mr. Daniels to thank for that and I can also make due with what we have here.
Mihn: And if you want some friends to come over I'm sure your dad and I can turn a blind eye to it.
Kuki: No I think tonight's going to be an all Kuki Elloise Sanban night, and it starts in the bathtub and ends on this couch.
Kahn: And tomorrow when we get home your mom and you are going out for some girl time.
Kuki: What about Mushi?
Mihn: She can come too but I'm not buying her anything because of her outburst earlier tonight
Kuki: All right you two run along while I fix Mushi's dinner, I'll call if there are any problems, which I don't think there will be but you never know.
Mihn and Kahn shut the front door as Mushi ran downstairs taking them two at a time to find her way out blocked by Kuki.
Kuki: And where do you think you're going missy?
Mushi: In the yard to play baseball, see it's a game with a stick and a ball.
Kuki(Agravated) I know what baseball is, unfourtantely for you your grounded until further notice.
Mushi(Grinning) You didn't really buy that stuff from mom and dad did you?
Kuki(Nodding) They looked pretty serious when they said it, plus they never grounded you before so when they say you're grounded I for one believe them.
Mushi(Growling at Kuki) You have 10 seconds to move your hiney away from the door or so help me God you're going to hate babysitting me Kuki Elloise Sanban.
Kuki(Looking in the back of her) My hiney isn't near the door but I can see where you can mistake my hiney for yours, I mean yours is bigger than mine candy junkie.
Mushi(Pushing Kuki) Move, move, move, move, mmmmmmmooooooovvvvvveeeeeee right now Elloise.
Kuki(Grinning) Sorry Alice not gonna happen you're grounded and I'm going to make sure it stays that way.
Mushi(Trying to tackle Kuki) ouch man why do I have to be so small?
Kuki(Lovking the door) Because you're five and have a lot of growing to do, now come on there's a dinner on the table with your name on it.
Mushi(Grumbling) Game on stupid, older, sister, babysitter.
Kuki(Pushing a plate of food to Mushi) Fried chicken, mac and cheese, potatoes, gravy, cole slaw, a biscuit, and a cake for dessert if you eat all of your dinner.
Mushi was passed a cup, a fork, and a spoon as the phone rang and Kuki ran to answer it.
Kuki(Out of breath) Sanban- ressidence- Kuki- speaking- and- how- may- I- help- you?
Fanny(Giggling) Well sounds like I caught someone at a bad time.
Kuki(Grinning) Hey Fan I was just about to call you.
Fanny: Then I guess I'm psychic, so are you busy?
Kuki: Yea babysitting Mushi the terrible, so what are you up to?
Fanny: Wally and I were wondering if we could come over tonight.
Kuki: No I need some alone time after take a dip in a murky lake, but maybe after my girl's day out with my mom you can hang here with Wally.
Mushi sneered grabbing the potato container and her spoon.
Kuki: All right sorry Fan but I'll be sure to give you a shout out tomorrow.
Mushi(Flinging her potatoes) Heads up meanie babysitter.
Kuki hung up the phone as the potatoes met her hair with Mushi cackling.
Mushi: I said heads up what are you deaf?
Kuki(To herself) I'm not gonna scream, I'm not gonna scream, I'm not gonna scream.
Mushi: Don't I just make you want to spank me?
Kuki: Not yet but the night is still young.
Mushi(Flinging gravy at Kuki) Your mashed potatoes looked lonely all by their lonesome.
Kuki(Growling) I'm not gonna scream, I'm not gonna scream, I'm not gonna scream.
Mushi(Throwing a drumstick at Kuki) Here take some greasy chicken on your sweater Kuki.
Before Kuki could move the chicken met her sweater and stuck there for a second before falling onto the floor.
Mushi(Cackling) Man you look like a walking, talking mascot for KFC all thanks to me.
Kuki(Trying to wipe the grease from her shirt) Eww gross eww gross eww gross eww gross, gross, gggggrrrooossss.
Mushi: I thought you'd like the fried chicken on the sweater gag, so am I going outside or are you going to continue to make me angry?
Kuki's shadow covered Mushi as she gulped forgetting how much bigger Kuki was than her and she had the shadow to prove it.
Kuki(Pushing Mushi in and taking the other food off the table) You know you're lucky this sweater was already dirty or I'd so bash your head in.
Mushi: Mommy says you're supposed to use nice words around me.
Kuki: Yea well I'm sure if mommy were here right now she'd let me make an exception.
Mushi(Staring longily outside) I don't see why I have to stay in when all my friends are out there having the time of their lives.
Kuki: Because they didn't get straight F's, or destroy their parents clothes with scissors and then lie about it.
Mushi: Well if mommy and daddy weren't so hard on me then maybe I could get straight A's and if they didn't put you in charge I wouldn't have cut all their clothes.
Kuki(Agitated) Just finish your dinner so you have dessert and then hop in the shower, then after that you are to stay in your room coming out to use the facilities and that's it.
Mushi(Sneering) Fine if that's the way you want to play it we can play it that way Elloise.
Kuki: And one more piece of food that comes flying at me I'll force all of that food down your throat.
Mushi testing the waters threw her drumstick at Kuki's hair and it like on the sweater stuck there for a second before falling to the floor.
Kuki: THAT IS IT MUSHI ALICE SANBAN!
Kuki angrily walked up to the table as Mushi smiled innocently with Kuki making her grab her fork and spoon.
Kuki: This is so being reported to mom and dad when they get back tomorrow, and I hope you like hair on your chicken because you're going to eat all of it until there's nothing left on the bone.
Mushi never seeing Kuki this angry slowly scopped mashed potatoes on her spoon and ate them.
Kuki: I'm going to sit here until all of that food's gone and you just lost your dessert privileges young lady.
Mushi(Pouting) But I always get chocolate cake after chicken Kuki, you can't take it away from me.
Kuki: Watch me now finish eating so you can get in the shower and have a great time in your room by yourself.
Mushi: How can that be fun?
Kuki: It's not supposed to be fun you're being punished and being punished is never fun which is why I never got punished.
Mushi(Poking her macaroni and cheese) Yea well I think you should get punished for saying you were going to bash my head in.
Kuki: As I said if mom were here she would make an exception tonight.
The doorbell rang as Mushi made to run but Kuki stopped her shoving the spoon into her hand.
Kuki: I'll get that maybe it's one of your little friends wanting you to come outside, I hope it is so I can tell them you're grounded.
Mushi: I wish I was an only child.
Kuki: Yea well I was here first so you will never be an only child.
Mushi: I wish you never existed.
Kuki giggled and opened the door to find a girl in straight red hair smiling up at Kuki.
Kuki(Yelling) Hey Madison sorry Mushi can't come out she's grounded!
Madison(Smiling) Well all right maybe tomorrow then?
Kuki: I'm not so sure about that she got a very bad report card, and she cut all of our mom and dad's clothes.
Mushi(Grumbling) I'm- done- eating- I'll- go- get- my- towel- and- pajamas- ready- for- bed- meanie- big- sister.
Kuki: Good and you better not give me anymore trouble because if you do mom and dad will also hear about that too.
Mushi(Screaming) MOMMY AND DADDY PET, I BET YOU CAN'T GO ONE DAY WITHOUT TATTLING!
Kuki(Screaming) IT'S NOT TATTLING IF YOU'RE DOING THINGS TO HURT ME OR MAKE ME THIS ANGRY!
Mushi stomped up the stairs to her room to get her things ready for bed and her towel for her shower.
Madison: Well I'm going to play Baseball tell Mushi that maybe next time she won't tell Fairy Tales at school.
Kuki: We'll do Maddie now run along and go play, and also tell your mom and dad I said hello.
Mushi(Screaming) I HATE IT HERE, I HATE IT HERE, I HATE IT HERE, I HHHAAATTTEEE IIITTT HHHEEERRREEE!
Kuki: Hey that's my favorite song please sing it louder.
The bathroom door slammed with Mushi bawling behind it and it didn't phase Kuki at all.
Kuki(Dialing a number) Time to order me up some food.
Man: Hello Pete's Pizza and this is Louie how may I help you.
Kuki(Smiling dreamily) Hi Louie this is Kuki and I want the usual please.
Louie: I'll be there in five minutes, Fullbright tells me your babysitting Mushi the terrible tonight.
Kuki(Rubbing her temples) Yea and she decided to throw her food all over me before I made her eat it.
Louie: Good she needs a firm voice and a firmer hand.
Kuki(Sighing) Don't I know it so I'll see you when you get here?
Louie: Yea I'll be there in five minutes with a large hamburger pie and a 20 ounce bottle of Dr. Pepper and Mountain Dew.
Kuki(Licking her lips) MMMMMMMMMMMM I can't wait.
Kuki hung up the phone and still heard Mushi's crying from the bathroom again not letting it phase her.
Kuki(Looking in a Blockbuster bag) Let's see what mom picked up for me to watch tonight shall we.
Colombiana, The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo, Hannah, and Twilight Breaking Dawn part one tumbled onto the table as Mushi huffed walking down the stairs in her bathrobe.
Kuki: Right now get your little butt upstairs and ready for bed, I have had it up to here with you tonight Alice.
Mushi: Fine I just thought you should know that I wish you weren't my sister.
Kuki: Good because the feelings mutual.
Mushi: Fine I'm going to my room and you can have fun out here all by yourself.
Kuki: I will because Louie's on his way here with my dinner and after that I have a date with a huge bathtub, bubbles, soothing music, and then a DVD player with no kids allowed DVD's.
Kuki was talking to air as Mushi stomped up the stairs and slammed her bedroom door.
Kuki(Kicking back on the couch) Finally some time to myself, DVD's you're for later for now let's see what's on TV.
The phone rang and Kuki answered it to hear Mihn on the other side a frnatic tone in her voice.
Mihn: Kuki are you all right? I mean Mushi's pulling out all the stops tonight isn't she?
Kuki: Yea but how did you know she was being so mean to me?
Mihn: Camera's Kuki Elloise your dad and I brought them after we had Mushi to make sure she was teated good by you and so far so good but her tonight deserves a little harsh words.
Mushi(Jumping at the phone) Is- that- mommy- I- want- to- talk- to-mommy.
Kuki: Hang on mom I have someone here who would love to talk to you.
Kuki handed Mushi the phone as she got an I'm going to tell on you look on her face and stuck her tongue out at Kuki.
Mushi: Mama Kuki's being an absolutely evil babysitter, she made me eat fried chicken from her head, she told Maddie that I was grounded and couldn't play outside, and she told me that she wished she wasn't my sister.
Mihn could be heard yelling on the other end of the phone as Mushi winced at her words and Kuki winced at the tone in her voice.
Mushi: Yes I know but- yes it was but- Yea but she's not treating me very nicely either even if I did start it, and she said she wants to bash my head in.
Mihn yelled some more as tears rolled down Mushi's cheeks and she handed the phone to Kuki running back to her room slamming the door.
Kuki: Yes mom I ordered dinner for myself and I'm going to be soaking in a tub after dinner and then I have a whol bunch of movies to watch.
Mihn laughed and then hung up as Kuki put the phone back on the charger and the doorbell rang as Kuki ran to it to find Madison looking up at her with Mushi behind her smiling innocently.
Madison: I caught her crawling out of her window and falling into the rose bushes, and I knew you said she was grounded so I brought her back here.
Kuki(Grabbing Mushi's arm) Get in this house young lady and thank you very much Madison at least someone around here besides me my mom and my dad know how to listen around here.
Mushi(Grumbling) Yea thanks a lot Madison I thought we were supposed to be friends you know always looking out for each other.
Kuki shut the door before Madison could answer and looked angrily down at Mushi who looked up at her.
Kuki: Who do you think you are? Do you think that grounding's don't apply to you or what Mushi Alice Sanban?
Mushi: I just wanted to play one inning I mean do you have any idea how boring it is to be stuck in this house with nothing to do?
Kuki(Sarcastically) Oh no I love babysitting you and having food thrown at me, you disobeying everything I tell you, and then trying to get me into trouble by telling mommy on me.
Mushi: Yea well you can relax because mommy said she really likes you as my babysitter and she's going to start paying you more to babysit me.
Kuki(Beaming) Good so I gained her trust and that's a good thing, maybe next time I babysit you can play outside if you don't get yourself landed in solitary again.
Mushi(Stomping up the stairs) I'm going to bed.
Kuki: Sleep tight and don't let the kids laughter at their fun bother you.
Mushi slammed her bedroom door for the last time that night as Kuki heard the doorbell ring three times which was Louie's ring and she answered it to find him smiling and handing her the food.
Louie: And since when did we become The Mud Monster From Mars?
Kuki: Long story ask Abby Lincoln and Hoagie Gilligan about it.
Louie: Well I have other deliveries so enjoy and I'll see you soon I hope.
Kuki(Smiling) M-M-M-M-M-M-M-M-M-Me t-t-t-t-t-t-t-to Louie m-m-m-m-m-m-me t-t-t-t-t-t-to.
Mushi(From her window) She loves you Louie, she wants to kiss you, hug you, date you, and marry you so she can have a big family with you.
Kuki(Blushing) She's kidding Louie I don't love you, she has no idea what she's talking about.
Louie(Grinning) That's too bad because I was going to ask you to The Start Of Summer Dance but if you aren't into me then maybe I can ask somebody else.
Mushi: She's not allowed to go on dates my daddy says so, not until she's 30 and a Supreme Court Justice.
Kuki: I would love to go to The Start Of Summer Dance with you Louie.
Louie: Great so next Friday it'll be you and I on the dance floor dancing to everything.
Kuki(Smiling) I can't wait till then, I'll be the one in the homemade green spaghetti strapped dress and the sandals you can tie up to your ankles.
Mushi: Not if my daddy has anything to say about it.
Louie: I'll give you a call later but I do have to finsh these deliveries and get back to Pete's to answer the phone, and you've got to get to your food before it get's cold.
Kuki(Waving) Bye Louie and goodnight Mushi because it's bedtime no matter how much fun the other kids are having right now.
Mushi slammed her window and locked it as Louie drove off and Kuki brought her drinks and pizza into the bathroom with her.
Kuki(Runing the bathwater) Ahhhhhhhhhhh this is going to feel so good and relaxing.
Kuki stepped into the tub pouring bubble bath and putting bath salts into the tub then laying back a look of pure ecstasy on her face.
Kuki: I've been waiting for this all day, and now for the relaxing music, the food, drink, and mood lighting.
There was a knock on the door as Kuki knew very well who it was behind the door.
Kuki: To bed Mushi no more excuses.
Mushi: But my room's dark and I'm not allowed to watch TV so what do I do?
Kuki: Sleep with the hall light on it always helped you when you didn't have a TV.
Mushi(Defeated) Finnnnneeee I'll sleep with the stupid hall light on.
Kuki waited until she heard Mushi's footies walk back into her room and turned the radio on to Delilah her favorite radio DJ.
Kuki: Delilah you play the soft music and I'll drift away for awhile, and then when I'm all pruny I'll get out and eat my dinner downstairs.
Kuki closed her eyes sinking into the tub and she fell asleep not knowing how long she was asleep when a knock woke her up.
Kuki(Groggily) Mushi I thought I told you to go to bed.
Mushi: I'm thirsty can I have a drink of something?
Kuki(Looking at her watch) Three hours Jesus I must have been really uptight.
Mushi: So can I have a drink or not?
Kuki(Getting out of the tub) That's fine then it's right back to bed Mushi.
Mushi was heard walking down the stairs and then back up them with a can of soda in her hand.
Kuki: Well my dinner's cold but it's better cold so I'm not complaining.
Mushi: I'm going to bed for real now, it's really late.
Kuki(Nodding) Yea it is and you need your beauty sleep.
Mushi saluted Kuki and left her door open a crack, getting under her covers, and falling asleep.
Kuki(Skipping down the stairs) DVD, cold pizza, and Dr. Dew time.
Kuki quickly grabbed a cup and mixed Dr. Pepper and Mountain Dew together, grabbed her candy bag, and her pizza box putting The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo the english not the swedish version in and started it.
Kuki: I've been wanting to see this for forever.
Kuki watched all the movies her mom got for her except for Breaking Dawn Part 1 because she wanted to save that for her mom, Mushi, and her to watch tomorrow night.
