The First Day of School - pt 1

"Molly! Wake up! It's time for school!"

Slowly, I opened my eyes to see Kit shaking me and yelling in my ear. I groaned and rolled away from her.
"Molly! Wake up! I forgot to set the alarm last night! We're gonna be late for school!" Kit shouted.
Suddenly, I realized what she had said. I jolted up and looked at her. "School? Hand me my iPad."

Kit unplugged it and handed it to me.

I stared at the iPad for a few seconds, then saw the date.
6:34 AM, 9-6-16.

School was starting today! And the bus was coming in twenty minutes! "AHH! I need to get ready!" I shrieked.

I ran into the bathroom and flicked on the light. "Okay, what first?" I muttered.

I glanced at the bathtub, then shook my head. I didn't have time.

First things first, I put in my contacts. That was much better.

Then, I quickly brushed my teeth. Wouldn't want to show up on the first day of high school with bad breath!

Now, to do something with my hair. I grabbed my curling iron, then realized I didn't have time.

I saw myself in the mirror and cringed. "Ugh, my hair is a mess!"

"Kit!" I yelled. "Where's the hairbrush?"
"I don't know!" she called back. "I use the comb!"
Sighing, I ran to my room. There was no way a comb would do the job for my hair.

I looked all around the room. "Where is it?!"

Finally, I found it under my mattress. Who knows how it got there.

Quickly, I brushed my hair. Good thing I had picked out my outfit the night before!

Kit came into the room with a muffin and a box of raisins.
"Why aren't you eating in the dining room?" I asked, still working on my hair.
Kit wrinkled her nose. "Sadie accidentally left some spoiled milk in the fridge and now the whole kitchen stinks."

 I scooped up my outfit and went into the bathroom to change.

(sorry that its sideways)

When I came back, I showed my outfit off to Kit. "How do I look?" I asked.

Before she could answer, Sadie joined us in the room. "Hi Molly!" she exclaimed.

She was followed by Rosie, who was attending a private high school. She had to wear a uniform.
"Okay, I'm leaving now. You're sure you can get everyone out to the bus on time, Molly? When I'm gone, you're in charge."
"Yes, I'm sure," I answered.
"Alright, bye! Have a great first day of school, guys!" Rosie called, rushing out.

As soon as she left, Sophie came in with Gracie.

Gracie took one look at my outfit and shook her head. "You can't wear that, Molly," she told me. "You'll get dress coded."

I glanced down at my shirt. "Oh no! You're right! I can't wear a strapless top to school!"

I ran into Sophie and Sadie's room to change. Lucky for me, they kept their clothes in a pile on the floor, so all I had to do was grab a random shirt.

When I got back, Sadie asked, "Is that my shirt, Molly?"

"Yes, and it is way too small for me. Now I need a pair of shoes! The ones I had don't match this shirt!"

"Molly..." Sophie groaned, but she knew there was no stopping me when it came to fashion. I dug through the drawer and pulled out one shoe. "Here's one! Now where is the other shoe?!" I yelled into the drawer, hoping the other one would maybe appear. I squeezed my eyes shut for a few seconds. When I opened them, it was the same. I sighed and kept searching.

"Here it is!" I exclaimed.

I shoved my feet into the shoes.

"Molly, I got you some breakfast," Sadie said, handing me a hot pretzel. It wasn't the healthiest breakfast, but whatever.
"Thanks," I replied, taking it.

I looked at my phone. It was 6:52. "Okay, girls, we need to hurry if you want to get to school today! Let's go!" I said, leading everyone out the door.

Stay tuned for part 2!
