It’s a Saturday night and I’m home babysitting my little brother. My parents go out way to much I think to myself before telling Derek to go to sleep. “Derek go to bed, it’s 9 and I doubt you want me calling dad right”? I say to him before he gives me a dirty look and goes upstairs with anger.
Don’t get me wrong I love Derek but he’s 9, and I’m 17 I wish I had someone older. I hate how I have to waste my Saturday babysitting. Thankfully he’s asleep by 10 usually and I get to invite over Holly. Holly is my best friend for last few years. I met her first day of school here and her and I bonded easily. She’s a great friend and she loves to just talk and watch movies so I invited her over tonight.
