Chapter 1: Cami
"Cameron Rod! Get down here or you'll be late for practice!" My mom's echoic voice rang through my head, filling my thoughts. "I'm COMING mom, chill," I called down our winding staircase, trying to sound angrier than I actually was.
As I sat on my bed, sunlight reflected off my yellow walls, hitting me in the face. I was getting ready for show practice. I didn't want to go today. Don't get me wrong, I loved acting, but I had a big science test I was sure to fail even if I studied. At least I could say to Mr. Valker, my science teacher, that I had tried the best that I could and then bring on the tears! Mr. Valker was a sucker for a sob story. It was a long shot, but worth a try. I put the of the last of my stuff in my bag which included, a water bottle, script, sheet music, and a pencil, sharpened personally by, you guessed it, Mom! My mother was like that, always watching my back a bit to much.
"Hold on Mom! Give me a sec!" I raced down our steps with ease (which was unusual for me) and stopped in front of my mom. "Can I drive?" I asked quietly with no hope in my voice.
