Perfection meets chaos. Part 1
It was an early morning, I was woken up by the “singing” (as she calls it) of Jemma’s horrifying bee, Jacob, I think is its name.
I threw the pillow that had fallen down from by bed on top of my ears and tried to fall asleep once again, but it was no use. I looked around, it was deserted, Jemma, Rina and Chris had woken up already and were living their poor lives. You see I was the only one of the house that knew how to dress, makeup, eat and do anything you can imagine with style, the others just did it their own way…
I got up from bed, put on a violet dress with yellow and orange flowers, got my comb and hairspray and started tidying my hair. After that, I walked down, and before having breakfast, went outside to open the mailbox and read the mail, like I had been doing for the past two years.
“Always the same routine” I whispered to myself, and grabbed four letters from the mailbox; one was from my mom, so I put it in my pocket to read it while eating breakfast as I always liked to do, a second one was from the H.R.A, usually Rina reads these, so I left it back in the mailbox, the third one was from Nook, the owner of Nookingtoons sending a barbecue to Chris, the same model as that one I hid behind the house fence since Jemma and I had planned to not have to taste his barbecue ever again. And the last one was from the town hall, I was expecting news about how my founds had increased but instead I read this:
“Due to you having no more money in your bank account, we have cancelled all your credit and debit cards until you invert more money in these.
You owe the bank 29,870 bells for your last spending of money in these shops:
- Able Sisters
Sincerely, Pelly, your account manager.”
I couldn’t believe my eyes, I thought it might be a joke from Pelly, but who does that? Besides, Pelly and I are too close for her to joke about these things with me.
I ran inside, grabbed the phone on top of the exotic end table in the main room, called Jemma, who must be helping out right now at the Able Sisters, and waited for an answer, she was the cleverest one of all and I was hoping for some advice.
“Hello? Is that you, Ariadna?”
I didn’t dare to answer, this was so embarrassing.
“Oh, umm… Jemma, Is that you? Oh, I’m so sorry I got confused”
“Okay, I guess. Are you alright?”
“Me? I’m as good as… peppermint! (Dang, what the hell did I just say?) Listen, unlike you, I got a life so I got to get going.”
I kind of regretted saying that, but I was in no mood to fix more mistakes. So I took the next step, going to the town hall.
Running towards the town hall I ran into Rina, tried not to speak to her, and I could tell she didn’t want to speak to me either. But I was too busy to wonder why.
Right as I was about to continue walking my stomach started doing loud noises, I hadn’t eaten breakfast and I was hungry, this forced Rina to start a conversation with me.
“Wow! The greatest, most elegant Ariadna didn’t eat breakfast?”
“Yeah, well I didn’t really have time, but I was planning on going to the Roost”
“So… shouldn’t you be running the other way?” A small accusing laugh escaped from Rina’s mouth.
“… Do you mind? I have stuff to do!”
“You like to laugh at other people but can’t stand it when they’re laughing at you, huh?”
I stepped to the right to start walking away again, but Rina also stepped in my way.
“Come on, I like laughing at you, but I still care, what’s wrong?”
“That I saw you outfit and I wanted to vomit”
“Vomit, really? How long did it take you to come up with that one, Ariadna?”
I then stepped to the left and, successfully, walked away.
Not the story: Ugh I kind of hate this format, this looked waaay better as a .docx file in my computer :( So maybe I’ll be experimenting with fonts and such in this post, don’t be surprised if tomorrow this post looks any different or such! Thanks for reading, hope you enjoy this one!
