P a i s l e y
Paisley was up at six although she didn't have to be to work till ten. Every morning she went to Molly's house to make sure her three siblings that were still in school actually got up for school. Molly was the woman who gave birth to her, to all of them, but she was no mother. Paisley was more of a mother to her siblings than Molly ever was and because of it she never got to have a real childhood. Paisley took a quick shower then dressed herself for work. "Kit I'm heading over to Molly's to make sure the kids are up for school!" She shouted before leaving the apartment. Kit was Paisley's younger brother. He was burdened with the same responsibilities she was. Paisley wouldn't have been able to get through any of this if it weren't for Kit. Her siblings only lived a few blocks away, and so Paisley walked. "Landon, Lex, Emily!" She yelled as she pushed the door open. "You better be getting ready for school! Don't make me come up there!"

Sutton awoke to the sound of his sisters voice. He rolled over to glance at his clock and groaned when he realized it was only 6:15am. He pulled his pillow over his head and lay there for a few moments before getting up. Sutton rubbed his eyes as he walked downstairs with only his boxers on. He saw Paisley in the kitchen. "Hey Pai." He said groggily. Sutton opened the refrigerator and rummaged through it until he found the milk. He poured himself a bowl of cereal only to find out that the milk was three weeks expired. Sutton groaned. "F***." He said to himself as he shuffled to the bathroom and flushed his would be breakfast. Sutton raided the rest of the cabinets which were mostly empty so he was forced to settle with toast. Luckily they had butter so it was too awful. "We need groceries." Sutton said as he sat down while taking a bit of his toast. "I know. What does the bank look like?" Paisley asked as she grabbed the jar from a nearby cabinet. "I think most of that's for the power bill, but we much be able to take a few bucks from it." Sutton said in between bites. "I'm doing a job today so I'll have money for groceries and such." He added.

[ Alexa ]
She groaned when she heard her sister walk in and yell their names. She was still in her bed while her other siblings had gotten ready. She got out of bed and grabbed clothes, putting them on quickly and groggily walking downstairs while running a brush through her hair. "I don't wanna go." She told her older sister with a glare. She hated school., it was just a waste of her time and fun.
[ Landon ]
He was already ready and was downstairs, smiling at his older sister. "Hey Paisley." He said and frowned when Alexa came downstairs, complaining about not wanting to go to school like always. He rolled his eyes as he waited for his twin sister to come downstairs so they could go. He had a feeling Alexa would try and skip today but that was her problem.
(I know. I forgot)

Paisley rolled her eyes at Alexa. "Lex you have to go. Don't you want to graduate? If I find out you didn't go to school you're going to be in big trouble." Paisley was use to parenting her siblings. Especially when it came to disciplining Alexa. Although most of the time she didn't listen which resulted in Paisley punishing her. "Landon make sure she goes to school."

Sutton finished his toast and put his plate in the sink. "Give her some slack, Lex." Sutton said. "I'll pay the power bill later today since I think it's due. We don't need a repeat of last month." Sutton added. The things they had to do sometimes just to keep there power on. "I can try to pick up some groceries too." Paisley smiled at Sutton. "Thanks Sut. I'd do it, but I'm pulling a double today for the money. Has anyone seen Molly?" Paisley asked. "Yeah no problem." Sutton shook his head. "I have seen her since yesterday morning. I don't think she came home last night, but what else is new."
