“Tring! Tring!” ringed the alarm. I rubbed my knuckles into my eyes and scrunched my back to drive away the sleep and tried to remember what I had planned for today. I laid my legs on the floor, looked above as I saw the time.
“Oh my god! It’s almost time for school,” I exclaimed.
I ran towards the bathroom, quickly grabbed a sandwich and off I sprinted to school. My heartbeat was rising, hands were sweating; I was constantly thinking about the presentation in Science class. Though I had practiced a dozen of times, I wasn’t confident at all. I finally reached school; everything seemed pretty normal until the last block Science!
“1,2,3! Everyone in their places,” threatened Ms. ...view middle of the document...
Sweat poured down my forehead as I stayed still as possible as I see myself with whiskers! I stared at myself for a minute in shock trying to endure those ugly whiskers. I snatched them with my fingers like they were not real, while a drop of tear rolled down my cheek. I burst into crying, I immediately ran downstairs directly out of the school gates to my house. I covered my face with a handkerchief in my pocket. I slammed the door open, went to my room upstairs, stomping my feet in anger. I shrugged as I sat down on my bed, closed my eyes and thought about everything that happened in the past hour. I felt weary with a terrible headache; I instantly fell asleep.
I woke up the next morning. I blinked at the blinding ray of sunlight streaming in through the window. Just my luck that it happened to land on my eyes, and nowhere else; like it wanted to blind me. I groaned and threw the blanket off my body, and flicked the curtains shut. The entire room was plunged into darkness again. I went to the mirror on the side of my bed as I opened my dreamy eyes, I scream to death those ugly whiskers were still there. Moreover, I could see my nose getting flattened similar to a cat’s nose. I absolutely forgot about it! I just felt dreadful. I totally lost my self-esteem with no faith, no hope, and unequivocally no luck.
Soon I called up my best friend Lucy in panic. She didn’t know anything about this whole dramatic incident, as she was absent. I told her everything she was totally terrified and extremely shocked.
“How is that bloody possible?” interrogated Lucy, “this just can’t happen, it’s against human nature”
“Who knows if this is all part of evolution? Maybe our bodies our changing, Just like how monkeys evolved into humans,” I added.
I wore a scarf around my face to cover up my whiskers. I left the house in fear; I had a very strange feeling; suddenly all different kind of smells came up to me. I felt very strong and energetic. I was walking to school as I sniffed my nose, I could smell something really weird, I followed it across streets. The smell was getting stronger as the aroma passed by. It had a very strong aroma. As it came closer, I could identify the smell even better. It was spicy, hot, and overpowering, maybe sharp or bitter, but certainly not bland. I finally landed near an old lady’s kitchen’s window. She was making barbecued chicken. I peeped into the window; it just absolutely looked mouthwatering. Then I realized that I am getting very late for my school as it was already 7:55, I ran fast as I could to reach school on time.
Just in the nick of time I reached school, everybody stared at me like I murdered someone. I tried paying no heed to them. In our first block, which was English class, the principal entered our classroom.
“ Good morning everyone! I have a very serious and important matter that I would like to share with everyone,” he said in a deep voice.
“Sadly, a very provoking crime has taken place in our LCS...
