High above the mountains of Emerald Town, the sun rose glistening and inviting a new day. The birds chirped on trees, the cows grazed on the fields and the wind brushed gently through the leaves.
I woke up on a bright and beautiful Monday morning. It was 7:30am and I realized I was late for school again. Waking up late was a daily hobby of mine and I get a huge lecture out of it from my mother. I slowly got up from the bed and resisted the urge to fall back onto the pillow but needing to get dressed within 30 minutes was going to take a while.
I could smell the delicious honey pancakes mum made whilst I came downstairs but as usual I had no time to eat and mum always felt disappointed with my behaviour but I always assured her that it will not happen again.
This used to be my daily excuse. "Elaina Madden", where do you think you're going?" asked Mum. "I'm sorry mum, I can't be late for school, got to go!"Mum was always nice to me no matter what. But at times, I felt sorry for her, seeing her lonely. Dad left us when I was 2 years old and mum raised me by herself here in Emerald Town. She was a nurse and it was enough to make a living out of it for us both.
I closed the door behind me and walked down the footpath surrounded by rose gardens. As I made my way towards the school which only took 5 minutes, I could see the early spring flowers blossoming and cars roaring past me.
Emerald Town was an isolated town off the shore of Anville City. This was a place of tranquillity and away from all the city...
