The burnt scent of roasted coffee tickled the tip of my nose Just seconds before a noise so loud roared in my ear like a fire engine screaming through my bedroom. As I wiped the grit from last night’s sleep from the corners of my eyes, the bright light hit them. I slung my arm like an elephant trunk on top of the alarm to find the snooze button. I heard a faint voice in the background calling my name. “Koala, are you up? ” echoed down the stairs in the deep male voice of my dad.
While stretching my hands ND feet to the four posts of the bed,’ hesitantly answered “Yes” as my eyes opened after several watery blinks. I crawled out from underneath my covers, emerging like a butterfly from a cocoon, swinging my legs over the side of the bed. As my warm feet hit the cold floor, I got shivers that send chills all the way up my spine. I shook off the chills and drag my weary body to the steep staircase. Ascending those dreadful stairs is a struggle every morning.
I slowly made it to the top, and am greeted by my faithful go Bella. I meandered through the house and made my way to the bathroom to get ready. After I am done getting ready, I wandered back down stairs. I diligently grabbed my phone and pad and once again face the mountain like staircase. Once back upstairs I am re-greeted by an anxious Bella. I fling the door to her kennel open and she bounds to the door for me to let her out. As I opened the door, the fresh morning air hits me like a slap in the face.
After hooking Bella on the red leash, I went sack in and put my new shoes on my achy feet. I made sure all of my homework is in my bag. I heaved the heavy book bag onto my tired back. I grabbed my car keys and made the short Jaunt to my car. I pitched my loaded school bag into the backseat. I strolled back towards the house to put Bella in her kennel for the day. I quickly glanced through the house to make sure I didn’t forget anything. All was good so I turned the lock on the door, closed it, and I was off for the rest of my day.
