Beep... Beep... Beep. My alarm clock was going. I groaned. It was a new year and a boring one at that. I was starting year 6, my new teacher would be Mrs Red. She was an Old woman with grey stockings; she had rusty glasses and a creaky quiet voice.
After I had turned off the annoying voice of my alarm clock, there was a few minutes of silence in the room, but then after a while I could hear footsteps slamming against the floorboards of the staircase. I automatically assumed it was my step-mum coming towards my bedroom, ready to threaten me with a bucket of ice cold water and pour it over me, if I didn't get up before she got to my door. She would do this same routine every morning, just to get me up.
My birth mother died in a car crash four years ago when I was in year 2 and my little brother Luke was in Reception. After that, my Dad met Laura, My -supposed- step-mum. I don't Remember my mother to well, but I do know we shared our likings and looks. If you looked close enough you could tell we were related, even though my hair was short and black, and she had long blonde locks. My dad has had a complete change of women after she died. From people so Fascinating like my Mum, to old hags like Laura.
Before Laura could reach my door, I quickly sat up. "Ah Samantha your already awake. Good girl. Are you excited for the new school year?" She asked as she came and sat at the end of my bed.
"No not really. And Laura you know I don't like being called Samantha. I like Sammy. Samantha just sounds too formal." I said with a moan and a frown.
She sighed at my reaction "You know, I wish you would start calling me mum. I've been where for over three years now, and we both know I'm not going anywhere." She new i never liked it when she said things like that. "Well anyway Sammy, what would you like for breakfast today?" She asked politely and tilted her head as she did so.
"I'll have Cheerio's." I instructed.
"Again? really?" The woman didn't sound surprised when she said this.
I looked up and gave her a look. She smiled at me, then left to leave me to get myself ready for the day. As I stood up, I took in a deep breath for a yawn and moved my eyesight around the room, wondering whether I should Tidy it or not. I decided to let my future self worry about it, and left it as it was. My room had baby blue and Lavender walls and a laminate floor, with a Furry Lavender rug placed in the center. I had a large single bed with draws that came out underneath. Usually I crammed a lot of stuff in there...things you don't want to know. Also other modern-day stuff like a wardrobe and a desk with a laptop, stationary and books placed on top.
I marched into the hallway and went towards the bathroom. unfortunately my brother was in there, once again, just like always. "Get out Luke, the King of Puke. I need to make myself look presentable for the first day back to school" I shout as he looks up.
"Go away Sammy, you piece of Hammy. I was here first!" He yells back. We've always had names for each other, but mostly for a joke, as I always love to tease my little brother.
I became frustrated and let out a loud groan. "Oh, for god sake Luke!" I held my temper as best I could and ran down the stairs, with a thump on every step. "Laura! Luke is hogging the bathroom again." I said trying not to reveal my frustration.
"You can use it after. While you're waiting, why don't you eat your breakfast." She said. I had the urge to argue back. I hated it when she favourited Luke over me. It's all just because he was too young to understand what really happened to mum, and so Laura treated him like he was her own.
When I calmed down enough, I sat down at the table to see my dad there reading the newspaper, like he would every morning before he went to work. When I started to eat, the cereal tasted unusual. I quickly glanced over to the milk to see if it was still in date. Finding that there was nothing wrong with it, I thought to myself 'seems like a mystery' and mentally shrugged my shoulders.
After I finished, leaving my bowl behind, I ran back upstairs and into the bathroom, to find water splattered everywhere. When I realized it was Luke, I rolled my eyes and headed to the sink to brushed my teeth. After that I Went back to my bedroom to change out of my pajamas.
I decided to wear grey track suit bottoms with a plain black hoodie and my new Nike trainers. Then I did my hair in a really high pony-tail. People say I have great features like my hair and my jade green eyes.
I had seven Minutes left to get to school. I quickly grabbed my diary and wrote:
Monday 1st September.
Today is the first day of year 6. I'm sure we didn't have the full summer holidays, because it literally flew by. I wonder what Cady has been up too. I can't wait to talk to her. Last time I did, was three weeks ago when it was her birthday. She turned Ten. It's my birthday on the 12th of March. I want a set of drums. Anyway Ill fill you in on more tomorrow.
When I finished I grabbed my lunch and stuffed it into my school bag, while running downstairs and out the door. I then searched for my bike and cycled to school. Wondering what was to come for the new school year.
