It's the first day of summer and also the hottest day in Brooklyn to date topping the temperature at 100 degrees. On 67th and McAllister Street is where our story takes place and what our characters call home. On both sides of the street were rows of Brownstones and at each corner a little mini market or a church stood in its place. Brown Eagle High had officially closed it's doors for the next two months preparing for next year and the elementary school playgrounds laid in silence.
I woke up to the sound of my alarm going off at 8:30 A.M. the time that I usually get up to go to work; but instead I hit the snooze button bundling back up in my soft comfy bed sheets. Of course 10 minutes later my mom came in through the door nudging me on the shoulder. "Chris wake up, time to get up; there's some things that I'm gonna need your help with today." she said. I rolled onto my side pleading with my puppy dog eyes but ma wasn't having it and threw the sheets off of me. "Boy I am not kidding, hurry up and get dressed." was all she said to me before leaving my room again.
I was sitting in my room counting my money and tips from working as a pizza delivery boy at the local pizzeria; over 260.00 bucks from the last two weeks. Once I got done counting my money I went into my friend Patrick's room; he always hates it when I bother him while he's sleeping but I don't care lol. I leaned over his shoulder playing with his lips. "Rico...why do you always bother me when I'm sleeping?!" he said with a scruffy voice. "Wake up dude it's summertime" "Stop breathing down my neck man..I'ma get a lock one day and kick your ass out Rico." "What's the matter dude you don't like hanging out with ya boy Rico anymore?"
"Rico it's early..and this is the first time that I'll actually get to sleep in. Don't you gotta go to work man?" "Nope. Heading out to Jojo's" "Go brush your teeth, your breath stinks." Patrick said covering his head with the pillow. "I brushed my teeth, that's your upper lip"
It was an early morning for Venus as she stood in her fully body mirror talking with her best friend Kimmy on the phone. All that Venus had on was a fitted white tee and some pink booty shorts. "...early morning for you isn't it?" Kimmy said. "I guess..I'm so glad that classes are over, now I can start relaxing. Speaking of which wanna hang out at the Mt. Water Park today?" she said. "Cool, I was gonna go shopping for a new bathing suit anyways." Kimmy said with a giggle.
"Why don't I come with you? I was thinking the same thing." "Can't wait." "Now I should tell you I got a little thick around the waist and I got this cute belly button piercing so don't be jelly." Kimmy said with a giggle. "(Laughs) a little thick? Girl don't even start, but anyways I gotta get dressed. Meet ya at the mall in 30 minutes?" Venus said. "Alright, see ya later" Kimmy said. Looking at the time Venus jumped into the shower quickly, got out, dried and lotioned and went into her closet to pull an outfit out. It was a chill day for Venus so she just decided to wear her light blue skinny jeans on, some red, black and yellow J's, and her black tee that slightly showed her midriff and cherry belly button piercing. To top it off she threw a black and red snapback on and left her hair curly. "Damn, if I was a boy I'd date myself lol" she said. After applying some mango peach lip gloss on she grabbed her phone and keys and was out the door.
