You better think first before you
hurt me, the people I love, or are in love with.
Kelsi has weird way of
waking people up.
Before your alarm clock
is able to go off she burst through your bedroom door and
literally bounces you to death, my little sis.
But believe me if she
hits you just right you'll have a) a sore neck b) sore back
c)can't get out of bed for a week.
Except this morning, my
alarm clock went off on time, and she didn't come in ready to
I propped myself on my elbow and
ran my finger through my hair.
I forced myself from my
comfy bed and almost fell on the way to the door.
"Kelsi?" I walked down
the hallway to her room.
It was open.
All of the sudden
something hit me from behind and grabbed my leg. I heard the all
too familiar giggle and looked down.
"Good morning nut
head." I picked her up and started to carry her down
Man she was getting
steady on her feet, and heavy. I shifted her wait to my other
I set her down at the
end of the steps and she giggled again running to the
My face fell when I entered
our kitchen. I was so used to having our mother make us
breakfast, but she was killed 2 weeks ago in a car accident. I
sighed and stepped into the room.
I opened to fridge and
frowned, "Hey what do you want for breakfast munchkin?"
I turned to her in
confusion and put a hand on my hip, "You like cereal? Since
"Since mommy left." She
frowned for an instant but perked up in seconds.
I half smiled and pulled the
milk from the fridge. I still hadn't told her about mom and I
don't plan to till she gets older.
There was a knock at the door,
"Can you fix it Kelsi?"
She nodded and I left
the room and walked down the hallway to the front door.
The person at the door was
really inpatient because they knocked again. I unlatched it and
opened the door to a face I sadly knew all to well.
I called back to Kelsi, "Kelsi be
good I'll just be outside talking with Miss Amy."
"Okay." she said in her grown
up version voice. I winced.
I closed the door behind me
and looked at Amy, "What do you want?"
"I came by to see how Kelsi
was doing. She seems to be growing fine." She smiled.
I narrowed my eyes and
spoke quickly, "I promised I would keep an eye on her. Didn't I
so far? Her powers will come any day now. But remember, when we
use our powers, no human can see them. Angelia next door will be
fine taking care of her."
Amy's jaw clenched,
"Yeah I guess so, but I'm here to tell you, Boss isn't patient,
and to keep him waiting can cause harm. No human can ever find
out the existent of us. It would be a mistake, a costly
She turned and looked around
before she disappeared. I wiped the sweat off my brow and headed
back into the house.
I went into the kitchen
and Kelsi had finished her breakfast and cleaned the kitchen. I
smiled to myself and headed upstairs.
I peeked in Kelsi's room and
she was in her closet trying to find some clothes. I opened the
door and she turned her head in my direction and smiled.
"Find anything yet?" I said
bending down next to her.
Her forehead wrinkled and she
held up to shirts, "I can't choose between the green one and the
I studied them, "If I were you
I'd pick the red one and then go with some jeans."
She smiled and set both shirts
to hug my. I wrapped my arms around her and held her in my arms.
I was not going to let any thing happen to the last left of my
