“The sun is rising in the west today,” I said to my Mom. She looked out the window. It was about 5:55 am. The sun started rising from the west.
“I knew it!” I said to myself.
“Oh, it is, Luna,” mom looked from the window to me. I pushed my glasses up higher on my nose.
“I wonder why,” my mom said. I looked at her green eyes through my glasses. Just like mine.
I sighed, “Mom, it's Opposite Day.” She looked at me with disbelief and fear.
“W-what?” she stammered.
“Opposite Day,” I repeated.
“A-ah,” She said looking distracted.
“Ok?” I said as I stepped out of the room and called out, “Mom, remember I have been waiting for Opposite Day for years now.” I went upstairs to get ready. As I was brushing through my super thick brown hair, I realized I needed to flip my shirt backward and say everything opposite from what I meant. I went on my TV and watched the news. It went like this-
The weather forecaster said, “Today is supposed to be rainy and cloudy all day! It is going to be a terrible day today! I hope that y’all have a terrible day!” I changed the channel.
“Today is not Opposite Day, so we all have school and work today.” I shut the TV off.
“MOM!” I scream.
“Yes honey?” I hear her say.
“No school!” I say.
“Oh, really? Cool honey!” she responds. I walk up to my room and text my friend JJ.
“Hey JJ. No school!”
He responds with, “Ok cool… Today is Opposite day, shouldn’t we say everything backwards?”
I say, “Well can we not? So it isn’t so confusing? Please?”
He said, “Ok! Wanna meet up l8er?” Oh my gosh, yay!
“Sure!” I text back.
“10 am my place?”
“Yes!” I look at the time, 8:00 am.
“Oops… I should've waited later to text him.” I go back downstairs and eat some breakfast. I went up to my room and wrote in my diary. I must admit, I like JJ. I mean, he is handsome, funny, and nice, with long hockey-hair, honey hazel soft eyes, and is super tall! Every girl’s dream! I look at my phone at 8:15 am.
“Come on!” I exclaim! I go downstairs and I see my mom, eyes wide open, looking out the window. She is frozen in fear.
“MOM! WHAT IS WRONG!” She looks at me and falls over. “MOM!” I grab my phone and call 911. “HELP!” I scream into the phone “My mom just passed out a second ago, please help!” I told them where I was, and they sent an ambulance over. I looked at the time and it was 9:00! I started to panic, and mom looked at me with her face super pale.
“Don’t go outside on Opposite Day-” I freaked out!
I instantly texted JJ, “I can’t go over today I’m… Not… Allowed too…”
He responded instantly “Well… Do you think I can come over?”
I thought about it a little bit “Sure!”
“Ok! How about… Right now!”
“Lol! Sure!” Then I remembered my mom “Umm-”
“I’m on my way be there in like 5 mins” OMG! I started freaking out! My mom is on the couch passed out! What is JJ going to say? I just fell down and started crying. I heard the doorbell ring. I went up to the door and JJ came in.
He saw my red eyes and hugged me and said, “Luna? What’s wrong?” I looked at him and collapsed in his arms. He started to look actually very worried. “Luna? I’m actually very worried about you…”
I stuttered, “I-I'm-s-scared-” His eyes grew big and I started panicking and shaking. He grabbed me and hugged me super tight.
“Luna… Why are you scared?” I pulled him into the living room and pointed at my mom. He hugged me and said, “I’m so sorry! Why didn’t you tell me?”
I said, “I was…”
“Then why didn’t you?”
The door rang and I ran to answer it. The ambulance was there with a stretcher that they put my mom on. JJ looks at me with such sympathy.
“I’m so sorry.”
I look at him and say, “I know, but it’s not your fault.” We decided to watch Netflix and game a bit, but I wanted to go out and order something since I wanted to order some food in the opposite way! I remembered mom’s warning, but didn’t mind it. I left to go with JJ to an Olive Garden. We ordered everything the opposite way! When we got back about an hour later, I got a call. It’s from my mom.
She says, “Hi honey. I am ok! Don’t worry about me, I just fainted! Just remember, STAY INSIDE.” A little late I guess. Me and JJ go back to watching Netflix and eating ice cream. Then we hear the doorbell ring. I go up to the door and answer it. No one is there…
JJ calls out to me “Who was it, Luna??”
“Probably just a ding dong ditch.”
“Oh yeah, probably. Come back here, Luna!”
“Ok. Coming!” About 6 hours later, we hear a super intense knock, so I start to get up and walk over to the door. No one is there.
“Again?!” I exclaim.
JJ says, “Again?! Really?!” We went back to watching Netflix and gaming. 4 hours later, we hear intense knocking. Again I go to answer the door. Of course, no one was there. As I was about to leave, I heard the knock again. I opened it. HAH! Caught the person in action! The person freezes and looks at me. They have a hood that makes their face black from the shadow and red eyes. I scream as it launches at me, it says something. I heard JJ run down the stairs and grab me before the creature could grab me.
“LUNA! Are you ok?!” He exclaimed. I am in shock, but shake it off. He hugs me.
“Are you ok?”
I look at him, “I-I d-don’t k-know.” He looks at me hard for a while, and hugs me harder.
“Who… Was that?”
“I don’t know.”
“Well, I want to know.”
“Because I don’t like it, when people mess with you, Luna.”
My eyes grow big, “Wait, what? Why?”
“Well, I care about you.”
“I care about you, too! The creature though, i-it said something.”
“What did it say?!”
“I-I-I don’t r-r-r-remember” He came closer to me.
“It doesn’t matter. I guess,” he hugs me. We both look outside as the sun starts to set, but this time in the east. My first Opposite Day was a failure. First, Mom faints, then I have an emotional breakdown, before I finally almost get kidnapped by who knows what/who!
