Why I'm Not a Morning Person

Beep. Beep. Beep. Beep. SLAM!

I took my hand off the alarm clock and rolled over onto my other side.

Ah…peace.

"MAX!"

Or not.

I groaned and buried my head deeper into my pillow.

"Not. Happening," I moaned, covering my ears.

"Maximum Ride, get your lousy butt out of bed RIGHT NOW!"

Muttering to myself, I swung my feet over my bed and forced myself to get up.

Have I told you that I'm not a morning person? I haven't? Well then. Let me tell you:

I am NOT a morning person.

I stumbled down the basement hall and up the stairs that led to the kitchen.

"What?" I yawned, collapsing into a kitchen barstool.

I looked up to the clock. "Good God, Fiona. It's six in the morning. On a Saturday."

She looked up from her spot at the dining room table and I winced at her appearance which was even more pink and fake than usual.

She frowned at me. Let me rephrase that. She TRIED to frown at me. What with her new botox (A/N: I think that's what it's called) and allit was a little hard.

"Why yes it is, Maximum. Thank you for pointing that out for me."

I ran my fingers through my hair and laid my head on the bar table. "What do you need, Fiona? Because I would like to go back to bed."

"I just wanted to give you your list of chores before I leave."

"What?" I asked. "Where are you going?"

"Out of state," she replied, placing a couple of loose leaf paper in front of me. "Here is your list. All of these are to be done in addition to your usual. We wouldn't want the house to blow up while I'm gone now would we? No," she said, pinching my cheek.

I looked them over briefly and mentally groaned.

"Where are you going again?" I asked.

"Out of state," she repeated. "To Arizona. And I expect everything on this list to be done by the time I get home on Thursday."

"Why are you going to Arizona? Fiona, I just did some of these chores a week ago. They don't need to be done again yet."

"Well," she said primly, "if I cared about how long ago you did it I would have asked."

"But—"

"Maximum, I expect this house to be perfect before I get back. Make sure Lissa and Brigid behave themselves oh, and no activities for you this week; you will be far too busy with this list."

"What? No. Fiona, that's not gonna work. I'm working all day Monday and Wednesday and I promised to—"

"Oh, Maximum, I'm so sorry!" She crushed me into a hug. When she pulled away her face was covered with a smug smile and fake emotion. "I guess you'll just have to cancel then, won't you?"

My stomach clenched at her fake smile and I gritted my teeth.

"See you in a week, Maximum! My number's on the fridge if you need me. Say bye to Lissa and Brigid for me. Kisses!"

She pranced out the door.

I sighed and started the coffee pot.

And that, my friends, is why I'm not a morning person.

So what do you think? Review please!
