I woke to the sound of insistent beeping, I cracked open an eye and glared at my alarm clock. I reluctantly sat up and rubbed the remainders of sleep from my eyes. I was once again dreaming of Jared Cameron, for the past two years, he had become the star of my dreams. Not that I was complaining. I leant over and pressed the button that ended the screech of my least favourite sound.
I threw back the covers and swung my legs out of bed, I dragged my feet to the bathroom. I pushed open the door and stepped through, I closed it behind me. I glanced at my reflection in the mirror and simply said
My brown hair was bland and lanky, it usually just hung down, the ends just reached below my shoulders, right now it was a gigantic mess, it was piled up on my head and I felt scared to even touch it at this point. My face was too wide, mostly cheekbones, with eyes too small to balance them out. Sadly, my nose and mouth were both too broad for traditional beauty. I sighed, I just had to accept the fact that I was imperfect and I guess I was okay with that. I groaned and brought one of my hands to my rat nest of hair. I tried to finger brush it and found that it was immediately stopped by an abundant amount of knots. I winced as I roughly pulled my hand from my hair, I refrained from shrieking when I found that my hand had taken a chunk of hair from my scalp. My eyes widened and I worriedly grabbed my hairbrush and warily brought it up to my hair. I closed my eyes and raked it through my hair, I cringed at every stroke, I did this until my hair was soft and wispy. I applied a small amount of lip gloss to my lips and mascara to my eyelashes. I brushed my teeth and then went to check myself in the mirror again, I had to admit I looked better.
I walked back to my room, humming to myself quietly. I got dressed into a t-shirt, hoodie and black jeans. I bounced down the stairs and made my way to the kitchen. My mum was in there making breakfast while my Dad was reading the paper.
I went round and kissed Mum and Dad. Dad looked at me in surprise.
He shook his head, a small smile on his face.
"I didn't expect you to be up this early is all"
I scoffed and punched him lightly on the arm.
"Guess I just didn't want to sleep-in today"
He shrugged and went back reading the news, I turned my attention to Mum, she looked up and smiled at me. I felt a twinge of jealousy, my mother was a stunning person with dark brown waist-length hair and beautiful dark oval eyes, her face was femine with high cheekbones. My father was almost the same, although he had light brown hair that was so short the army would be proud, he had deep blue eyes like a clear pool on a sunny day. My eyes were plain brown as was my hair, it was darker than Dad's but lighter than Mum's, I was in the middle. They had me young, my mother was just 19 while my father was a year older at 20.
"So Kim, what are your plans for today?"
Mum asked me, I shrugged and thought for a minute.
"Nothing I guess, finish some homework then watch movies"
She nodded before turning around to deal with the food she was cooking, the delicious smell of pancakes hit me hard and I was soon salivating.
"Do you have a ride to school tomorrow?"
"Yep, Johnny's taking me and Kat"
Mom raised an eyebrow but said nothing, I rolled my eyes, I was about to speak when Mum told me to get a plate from the cupboard, I did as she asked and she piled 3 pancakes onto it, she handed it back to me and grinned.
I smiled widely and reached into the cupboard for the coffee, I sprinkled some onto my food. I heard a gagging sound coming from my Dad, I rolled my eyes and turned to him, he was dry-retching as he looked at my concoction of food. I rolled a pancake into a wrap and took a bite, I groaned the gooey deliciousness dissolving in my mouth. My Dad was staring at me in disgust and amazement.
"How can you eat that?"
And I took another bite, he shuddered.
"Kim can eat her food as she likes James," I grinned triumphantly at Dad as I took another bite "Kimmy, is there anything going on with that Johnny kid?"
Mum asked innocently, my grin instantly died, I choked on my coffee pancake and my face turned pink.
"It's okay if there is sweety, we just want to know in case we need to take precautions"
My face now was a deep red.
I moaned, willing the Gods to stop my torture.
"So is there?"
She repeated, I saw my Dad looking at me expectantly from the corner of my eye.
"I would of told you if there was Mum"
"Yeah Ava, she would of told us"
"Hush James,maybe not, we know that your sixteen now and you might feel sexually active"
I spluttered and choked, Dad was turning a subtle purple, good at least I wasn't only one embarrassed by Mum.
"Mum, no, stop, I don't like Johnny, he's not my type and Kat likes him and yeah"
For a second it looked like she was disappointed but it was quickly covered by a smile.
"Alright, I'm going to my room"
"Finish your food please Kim"
I made a show of stuffed the rest of my pancakes into my mouth before leaving the kitchen and trudging up the stairs. I pulled out my homework folder and saw what needed to be done, it was the most dreaded, math. I didn't find math hard, it was just that it was boring. I took out the sheet we were doing, sat at my desk and attacked the work.
It was finished in two hours, as I put the work away my phone started buzzing, I picked it up from my desk and looked at the caller id, it was Katie. I smiled and answered, bringing the phone to my ear.
"Yeah, yeah, hi, OMG, Kim, you will not believe what I saw today at the Supermarket!"
