Caroline's Crazy Grandma Chapter 2
Caroline had gone to school that morning knowingit was an important day and it was. When she came home she had an A report card to show for it and wished her parents were there to share in her joy.
She had brought her friend Renee home from school and the 2 girls had immediately set about doing their homework.
After they were finished Renee tried talking to Caroline's grandma. They actually got along quite well. Turns out they are both mean-spirited.
Caroline had leftover Autumn Salad for dinner, her first real food since moving in with her grandma.
Outside Renee was kicking over the trashcan. Must be a mean-spirited thing.
She then came inside and brushed her teeth.
Which promptly broke the sink.
Caroline said goodbye to her friend and picked up the garbage can. Unfortunately there was nothing she could do about the sink, the repair technician just wouldn't listen to a little girl.
She went to bed early, it wasn't too bad living with her grandma. Lonely but not too bad.
Caroline contemplated trying to make friends with her bus driver, just to have an adult she could trust, but thought better of it.
When Caroline got home from school her grandma was acting pretty lucid so she decided to get her to help with her homework assignment.
Caroline's grandmother must have felt she was being too nice by helping with Caroline's homework. Immediatey afterwards she snuck up behind her,
and scared the daylights out of Caroline as she thought about heading to the library.
Even if she wasn't thinking about it before, the scare made her decided that getting out of the house was a good idea.
At the library she ran into another girl from school, a year younger than her, Emilie Brower.
Emelie was nice enough but all she wanted to talk about was the Zorro book she was reading.
She decided to call her best friend to come hang out with her, he said he'd be there in a litytle while.
While she waited she worked a little on her novel, Battle Gnomes.
When Mortimer arrived she hugged him, happy at last to see someone who actually cared about her.
Caroline was not sure what came over her but she had a strange desire to mooch money from Mortimer. He didn't mind and have her $2.
Unfortunately her curfew was soon up and she had to head home.
Caroline was glad her grandmother was asleep by the time she came home.
She ate some canned soup for dinner.
Despite her poor day she slept peacefully that night.
Caroline was more than happy to see the school bus pull up that morning before her grandmother even awoke.
Caroline made the honour rol that day and made sure to do her homework right away even though she had all weekend to finish it.
Caroline was so tired she wanted to go to bed immediately, even though it was only 5pm.
Her grandmother scared her right before she lied down, she has been doing that a lot lately, seems to get a lot of pleasure from it.
Caroline decided to just take a nap instead.
When she woke up she invited her best friend Mortimer over, she wanted to ask him to sleep over once he got there.
Unfortunately he left almost as soon as he got there and she never got the chance to ask him.
Caroline's grandmother made her Mac 'n' Cheese at 10pm, her earliest dinner yet.
After dinner she went to best, she wanted to be well rested for her big plans tomorrow.
Caroline woke up with anticipation, hoping her grandmother wouldn't find a way to ruin her day.
Her grandmother walked in on her in the bath but she wasn't going to let that get her in a bad mood.
Caroline ate a quick breakfast of cereal before heading out.
She rode her bike to Llama Memorial Stadium. Today was the free game she won the ticket for at school.
When she got there she say a small crowd was already starting to gather. She saw her friend Emilie's dad and wondered if Emilie was at the game too.
She saw that her friend Emilie was at the game. They chatted a while after the game, Caroline learned that she is Neat. They quickly became not only friends but Good Friends.
They played tag until it was starting to get dark.
Caroline did something she desperately wanted to do, but was a little afraid to do aswell. She invited her new friend to her house.
Once home she asked Emilie to sleep over, she still wanted a sleepover and it was getting too late to invite Mortimer over. Emilie became her second best friend.
Caroline figured that since she had a friend over, it would be better if they used the big bed, just for the night. However she ended up sleeping alone.
Emilie stayed up talking about her dad...
Brushing her teeth 4 times...
Before she finally got tired.
She finally laid down for a nap at 6:30 am.
