I got home around 5:00 with a smile on my face. Yami walked me home and we stopped for pretzels in the park. Yami was a great guy, so easy to talk and joke with. I pointed out homes and shops to him, giving him a brief run down on what and who was were in our town. We exchanged im addresses before we parted. "Cassandra!" a voice yelled as I steps into my house. I drop my bag by the stairs and head to the kitchen. My father was in there doing something. He was a tall man, very built from being in the Navy. He had a buzz cut and blue eyes. I guess I got mine from him. Michael Andrew Smith, a.k.a Iron Mike, smiled at me. His flannel shirt sleeve was rolled up with his arm down the sink.
"What happened?" I ask with a laugh. Dad looked up and chuckled.
"I broke the garbage disposal again." He admitted. Yes he said again. You see what happened was, when I was five we had this turtle I named Pan. Don't ask me why I named it that, I just did. Anyways, I created a pool for him in the sink and left him there. Well, my dad accidentally ground him up in the disposal with dinner. I was so mad at him that he had to by me a kitty to make me happy again. It was Mala, my soon to have been crazy psycho cat.
"Was it a turtle this time?" I tease going to the fridge and grabbing a coke. He chuckled and brought his arm back up and washed it off. I had a great relationship with my dad. I could talk to him about anything.
"Not this time." He said. I give him a small hug and head up to my room. After about two hours of homework and dinner I turn my computer on and kick off my socks. A picture of my mother and I greeted me. I smile slightly and get online to this website called teenspot. I was basically a bunch of chat rooms you could jump around to and talk to people. I sign in and pop up into the sports room. I did have a few friends online here, but I was not stupid enough to tell to much personal info.

I signed off and sit back and smile gently. Heart of the Cards and I met on there a year ago. We chatted a lot and yes, we flirted. He is charming, sweet, and flattering, even though we haven't met. He was the reason I even got on. Sighing I go to my shower and bathe. I change into some sweets and a tank top. After turning on the stereo, a soft classic jazz floated through my room. I curled up under my red sheets and drift off to sleep. The music was soothing and a candle was lit in my window. I always lit one for my mother. I fall, that night, into a simple dreamless sleep.
