I slid down the wall flipping open my phone and pressed send, before putting it to my ear.
Mom* Are you okay Baby? Where are you? Where's your brother? Bailey why aren't you answering my questions? Bailey?
Me* Mom slow down and breath I'm fine. I promise.
Mom* Bailey why aren't you answering my questions?
Me* Because you asked about five questions in the space of like 20 seconds.
Mom* Okay your right. I'm sorry. Let's try this again. Are you okay?
Me* Yes Mom. I'm just peachy.
Mom* Sarcasm Bailey solves nothing.
Me* Sorry, I'm just getting pretty cold.
Mom* Which goes on the next question. Where are you?
Me* I'm at school. Sitting in the hallway outside the locker room.
Mom* Okay why are you cold? The school is heated.
Me* Yeah well that the problem because heat runs on electricity.
Mom* Your point is?
Me* We don't have any electricity.
Mom* Your in a high school with no heat?
Me* Ding ding ding!
Mom* Can't you leave?
Me* Nope. The roads are closed because it's already snowing.
Mom* Oh baby who else is there?
Me* It looks like just me, Coach Michel, and the entire football team.
Mom* Man sweetheart I'm sorry.
Me* Yeah well I'm freezing here Mom.
Mom* Let me call your Uncle Jesse and see if he can do anything.
Me* Coach already called him. He can only send in Marines after the storm is over.
Mom* Oh no that is not acceptable.
Me* Yeah well I'm stuck here.
Mom* No I am calling him right now and demanding he send in the marines.
Me* Mom just because the base commander is your Uncle doesn't mean it changes his answer.
Mom* It does when he hears his Great niece and nephew are stuck in there also.
Me* Alright, sorry I asked.
Mom* Alright I will call you back. I love you.
Me* Love you too Mom.
Taylor* Oh really where you because I can hang up?
Me* Yeah like you haven't talked to a girl in what? Like a couple of weeks now?
Taylor* Not true.
Me* Your mother doesn't count.
Me* or your sister
Taylor* Okay your right. You are the only female I have talked to. Wait a minute….what's a female?
Me* You're an ass hole.
Taylor* I know. So how's chilly North Carolina?
Me* Fucking freezing.
Taylor* Dude you don't know how much I wish it was 'fucking freezing' here.
Me* No, you don't.
Taylor* Oh I so do.
Me* I'm trapped in a High School with 20 guys, including my brother.
Taylor* Hey, I'm trapped in the ass end of the desert with 20 guys including my brother too here.
Me* It's fucking snowing.
Taylor* We just get sand storms.
Me* Did I mention there is no heat here and the temperature is dropping fast than Justin Bieber's balls?
Taylor* Hey take some of the heat from here. We don't need it.
Me*I would love some right now. I'm so cold.
Taylor* Why? Isn't there heat or something?
Me* a transformer blew so we are powerless.
Taylor* Aw man that sucks Blondie.
Me* Thanks for pointing that out there Sherlock.
Taylor* Your welcome Mrs. Williams, I'm here to help.
Taylor* I got you to laugh. Do I get an award?
Me* You get a hug when you get home….if I get out of here alive.
Taylor* Oh I can't wait to get home now. I'm counting down the days to when I get my hug.
Me* Hmmm you should. I do give nice hugs.
Taylor* I can't wait Blondie.
Me* Taylor can you do me a favor?
Taylor* What is it Bailey?
Me* Stay safe? For me?
Taylor* Of course. I can't miss out on my hug can I?
Me* You better not.
Taylor* Don't worry; I will do my very best.
Taylor* I got to go now Blondie.
Taylor* Alrighty then.
Me* Stay safe.
Taylor* Yes Ma'am.
