Alicia Walker sat down on the black-cushioned bench and clutched her purse to her breast. If this little incident had happened during the summer, she could take care of going to the mobile phone store during the day when they were slow. She looked down at the ticket in her hand, number 76 looked back at her. With a sigh, she looked over to the red digital counter on the wall, number 36 laughed back. When, oh when, had America become so dependent on their cell phones. White walls, free-standing, wrought-iron racks full of the latest and greatest technology. Nothing to keep your gaze from all the electronics lining the walls. You had nothing but product to look at. All the employees wore the same golf shirts and khaki pants. The focus of the store was the product. Alicia cringed as she looked around at the other patrons of the store. They all looked resigned to the same fate of waiting in purgatory. The mobile phone store was probably the only place in America with a longer waiting line than the doctor’s office. I’m stuck up at 80. ” Alicia looked up to see a handsome gentleman smiling down at her. There were laugh lines around his eyes and.
Linda returned to her breakfast clean up. She was angry at her stubborn daughter, and without thinking she furiously grabbed at the scrambled egg-encrusted skillet on the stove and swung it over to the sink. Linda grabbed a dishcloth and bent over to mop water from the hardwood floor. She belatedly remembered that she had actually filled the pan with water to loosen up the egg remnants, but instead of putting the pan next to the sink, she had uncharacteristically left it on the stove. Linda instinctively looked at the digital clock on the stove top, how many more minutes of Zelda pouting would she have to endure before the bus came. That was odd, that only happened during a power outage, but the overhead kitchen lights were on. Linda pushed a number of buttons on the stove control panel, but nothing could summon the stove to wake up. It was dead. “The first time you turned it on, I think, it was weird, it was like the whole control panel got switched on, there was all this green writing, and then it went completely blank. Linda started to clear the dishes and pans from breakfast, to get the kitchen in order before the repairman arrived. She went to the stove top to make it as presentable as possible, and that was the first time that she noticed the range was covered in water. It must have spilled out when she removed the skillet filled with water. The water must have somehow gotten into the control panel and shorted it out, that was the reason the circuit breaker switched.
The night she jumped out of an eight-storey window puzzled her as much as she thought that Athena could have died from the height she jumped out of. That day they ate silently on the bleachers often came to her mind, believing that there was... But Athena did not show up the next day, she felt torn at the thought of it. Michelle sighed as she proceeded to the cafeteria for lunch on a Friday, hoping to lull herself to more sleep but she recalled today was Fun Friday. The entertainment today composed of one band, one comedic act, and one short video of a random series on Fox, all in just an hour. “Heeeeeeeyyyyyyyyyyyyyy folks,” the emcee spoke through the microphone as the whole room burst into cheers and slightly caught Michelle off-guard which made her jump slightly, but despite the sudden wake up call, she did not feel the excitement... The prefect looked at Michelle over her shoulder as she led her to the tall grass that led supposedly led to the field. The prefect let go of Michelle for moment as she revealed a hidden door, covered by the same colour of leaves and branches, then opened it. To Michelle’s surprise there was a much smaller garden surrounded by a high brick wall that separated the... In the centre of it all was a wooden shack protruding from the wall, probably made of the same mahogany wood from the way its brown walls looked similar to the school’s floor.
