 “Let’s see…” 3 hours later Dawn is reading off her list. “Underwear, bra’s, shirts, tank tops, swim suit, books, toiletries, shorts, sweater, purse, phone, charger, pillow, socks, pens, pencils, eraser, paper, earphones, allergy medicine, sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, flip flops, earrings, one sundress.” Dawn exhales. “And a towel, shampoo, conditioner, soap.” Dawn shoves the underwear, bras, tops, shorts, dress, swimsuit, sweater, socks, sunglasses, medicine, sunblock, hat, soaps, and earrings into her plum-purple suitcase, and zips it closed. She wipes her brow and exhales in relief. She finds her backpack and packs the rest of the stuff into the backpack. She takes her purse and puts in her charger, earphones, and toiletries. Dawn exhales and gets up from her bed. She takes her phone and texts alec: 

 

Dawn: hey dork you all packed?

Alec: yep

Dawn: mee too

Alec: wanna come over and playsomegames?

Alec: no man's sky, minecraft, roblox.

Dawn: Ofc ima ask my mom. 

Alec: k

 

Dawn shut off her phone and started walking down the stairs to find her mom. “Mooooom?” “Yessss?!” “Can I go  over to-” “Alec’s?” Sylvia smirked at her younger sister behind Elaine’s back. “Sure, go ahead.” Dawn ran back upstairs to grab a purse, in which she put her phone, a dollar, sunglasses, and earbuds. She walked calmly out the door, but as soon as she closed the door behind her, she was off. The trees and houses blurred past, and then when Dawn finally got to Alec’s house, she bent over, breathing hard. She went up to the door to Alec’s house and knocked. A moment later the door opened. “Hey!” Alec said, grinning at Dawn. Dawn held up her hand, wheezing for breath. After about a minute, Dawn straightened up, her breathing under control again. “Ok, I'm ready.” “Which game?” Alec asked, leading Dawn down to the basement. Dawn shrugged. “Roblox?” Alec agreed. “Sure.” Dawn took out her phone, logging in.  “What game?” “Whatever.” Alec said carelessly. They ended up not even playing video games, but walking around the park, eating ice cream. As Dawn licked the cone of Pistachio ice-cream, Alec pointed out a huge oak tree. “What do you think lives in there?” There was a huge hole in the side of the trunk. “Hmm… maybe a squirrel? Chipmunk?” Dawn answers playfully. “A humpback whale?” They both crack up laughing. Da daa da daa da daaa da daaaaaa. Dawn’s ringtone blares through the air, startling both out of laughter. Dawn groans and reaches for her purse. “It’s probably mom calling to catch me and pull me home.” She turns on the phone. Alec’s phone rings as well. Dawn rolls her eyes and pushes the red ‘DECLINE’ button. She places the phone back into her purse. “I knew it, it was mom.” She sighed. “Oh. I should go. Dad is pissed.” Alec groans. They start walking back. “Shortcut!” Dawn sings, pulling Alec through an alleyway. They talk and laugh. “Wait…” Alec says suddenly. He awkwardly grabs Dawn’s arm. “What?” She asked. Alec kissed her. Right on the mouth. Dawn gasped against him. She ducked away and ran, glancing back as she went. Alec stood stock still against the wall, his face gray and his hands over his face. Dawn sprinted the rest of the way home.
