"Melody, wake up," dicho Eric as he patted his five-year-old daughter on the arm.
"Five más minutes, Daddy," Melody yawned.
"But Melody today is your first día at your new school. If tu don't get up, you'll be late," Eric responded.
"I don't want to go to school today!" dicho Melody.
"Melody, get out of cama right now o I'll spank you," Eric firmly stated.
Melody's eyes went wide and quickly got out of bed. Eric left while she got dressed. She took her rosado, rosa pajamas off and tossed them on her bed. Then, Melody slowly put her on her outfit on. She dressed slowly since she did not want to go to school. Her outfit contained a cream-colored t-shirt with a flor that had naranja petals and a yellow bud. She was also wearing blue jeans and read and white tenis shoes.
"Melody, come down! We're going to be late!" Eric hollered from downstairs.
"I'm coming!" Melody answered loudly. She went downstairs. For breakfast, they ate leftover burgers from Burger King. Melody liked burgers but eating them for breakfast? Well, she couldn't blame her father for not knowing how to cook. She couldn't cook, either. After breakfast, Eric and Melody both ran to their black jeep and drove off to school. Eric dropped Melody off and waved bye to her.
Melody really did not want to go inside the school building. But she went inside, knowing that the school campana was going to ring in ten minutos and it was too late to run back home. She walked through the hallway and entered Room 13, which was located near the school entrance. She put her backpack and her lunch bag inside the green locker with her name on it and sat down on her desk.
"Good Morning, Melody," dicho her teacher Mrs. Murphy. She was a middle-aged woman with white hair, small glasses, and a polka-dot dress. Melody had met her when her dad had signed her up to start school here.
"Good Morning, Mrs. Murphy," Melody replied back.
Lunchtime came. Melody went inside the cafeteria with her lunch bag and sat down with the girls from her class.
"So, what are tu getting your mom for mother's day, Anna?"
"I'm going to give Mom a pwetty necklace. Hey, Joey, what are tu going to give your mom for mother's day?
"I'm going to give her flowers."
"I'm going to give my mom a mother's día card," Harry dicho proudly.
"Hey, Melody what are tu going to give your mom for mother's day?" Anna asked.
Melody blushed. "I don't have a mommy,"
Anna, Joey, Harry and the other kids began to laugh. Melody's face turned red and she looked down at her shoes as the kids threw cruel comentarios at her.
"You don't have a mommy?"
School ended at three o' clock. Everybody went inicial except Melody. She stood in front of the school entrance, hoping her dad would pick her up soon. An hora passed and still no sign of her dad. Melody still waited. Finally, Eric's black jeep arrived at a little after four. Melody's blue eyes looked very cloudy.
"Honey, what's wrong?" he asked.
"Why were tu late? You're always late!" Melody asked, angrily.
"My boss kept me back at work, honey, I'm sorry." Eric apologized. During the inicial ride, Melody looked out the window, and stared blankly at the trees they were passing by. Eric noticed that Melody looked crest-fallen.
"Nothing," she lied.
"I dicho nothing!" dicho Melody. Eric turned away from Melody and focused on the road ahead of him.
When they got home, Melody went to watch TV, while Eric sat down on the sofá and went to take care of some paperwork. He was busy at work and it was very hard for him to take care of Melody while trying to succeed at his career. Part of him thought that he should find a new wife, for Melody's sake. However, that would never happen. His first experience with romance did not go very well and he didn't want to go through the emotional wreck again.
No, instead Eric was going to hire a nanny; someone who could care for Melody when he is out at work. He took out his cell phone and called the paper.
"Hello? Windy Times Inc.? This is Eric Banes. I like to put in an advertisement in hiring a nanny…"
