“If it wasn’t for Carlos, I would’ve been early for school today,” I thought. Hi, my name’s Chantelle and I’m 12. I’m a gamer, a Minecrafter to be exact. I have a friend named Carlos and he may be quite annoying but he’s always there when I need him. You might be wondering, what did Carlos do that made me late for school today? Well, he asked me to wait for him because he was “feeding his kittens”, and I knew he was lying because he’s allergic to one!
I know Carlos too much to know that he DEFINITELY 100% was texting with his girlfriend, Samantha. So, yeah, basically this is my life. We go to Harfield Prep School and I’m in the Writing Club. Sometimes… I wish life would get more exciting, you know?
Looks like my wish might just get granted…
I peeked through the glass door. Everyone was seated and Mr. Wilson was already discussing tomorrow’s project. “Dang it, I’ll be lucky if I get away with this,” I thought nervously. I opened the class door, and I felt everyone’s eyes on me instantly. “Chantelle Anderson, you are late,” Mr. Wilson said. “Lucky for you, I don’t have time to deal with you right now,” “Wow…” I mumbled as I sat down at my table. He was… different today. He didn’t even notice when Mark, the class clown, threw a paper ball at him! All I knew was that I couldn’t wait ’til after school to finally get back home and play Minecraft.
As the bell rang indicating that school was over, I grabbed my bag and rushed out if class, eager to continue my mining expedition. I saw Carlos sitting on a bench, Samantha next to him. I chuckled slightly, then I called out to him. He didn’t seem to notice. So I walked home by myself. Then I felt someone beside me. It was Monica, a friend of mine. “Lemme guess, you’re off on another Minecraft adventure?” She asked me. “Yeah,” I answered her. “I found this really cool cave system and I found lots of ores in it!” Then I realized she was just staring at me blankly. No, she wasn’t much of a gamer. She was more of a… jock. She plays all kinds of sports and sometimes I play floorball with her.
“Well, here I am,” I said. “See ya next week!” Monica waved goodbye. I opened the door to my house, only to be greeted by a jumpscare from Freddy Fazbear. “Ahh!!” I screamed. I looked around frantically, wondering who could’ve did it. Then I laid my eyes on Chris, my little brother. He was laughing hysterically. “HOW COULD YOU?! YOU KNOW I HATE FREDDY!” I shouted, throwing a cushion at him. In the end though, we collapsed out of laughter and ended up having a pillow fight.
I went upstairs and entered my room. It was full of blue, orange and white, my favorite colors. I put my bag down and turned my computer on. I logged into Minecraft, clicked on my Survival world, and started playing. 5 minutes later, my head started feeling dizzy. I thought it was just a usual symptom which means my body’s sleepy, so I got out of my seat and walked over to my bed. Once I stood up, the world around me was spinning around, and the distinctive fragrance of my fuzzy dark blue carpeting was the last thing I remembered before blacking out.
