I grabbed my disk book and took out my ultimate favorite CD. Then I
snatched Dad’s video camera before he could ask what I was doing. As I set up
the tripod and put the camcorder on the stand, I just pictured the outcome of
this. I opened the CD drive on my karaoke machine and popped in the disk, hit
record on the camera, and danced like never before.
I ended with my prize-winning smile and stopped the recording
session. Grabbing the tape, I stuck it in the shipping envelope
labeled, “American Dance Society”.
“I hope this gets me somewhere!” I said as I walked down our long
driveway to the iris-covered mailbox. I stuffed the envelope in to the box
and put up the flag.
As I walked in the door, Mom yelled, “Do you want Mac N’ Cheese or
Grilled Cheese, Kasey?” from the kitchen.
I strutted in to the kitchen where Mom was standing in front of our
quaint little pantry.
“Uhh, well. I don’t really care. I guess I’ll have Mac N’ Cheese.”
Down the stairs, I yelled, “How ‘bout you Emily? Mac N’ Cheese or Grilled
“My big sister took her gaze away from the computer screen just long
enough to say, “Mac N’ Cheese” before returning to her blogs and instant
When Mom went upstairs to check on the “big” New York Yankees vs. the
Detroit Tigers game, I stayed and stirred the “stew” as I like to call it.
Baseball is SO overrated.
By the way, to me, life is all about dance. My whole life revolves
around dance! Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Hip-Hop, Lyrical; you name it, I’ve done it.
I have 5 dance classes a week. Monday is possessed by Hip Hop, 4 hours of it.
Tuesday is Tap and Jazz. Thursday is Ballet and Friday is lyrical!
“Em! Food’s ready!” I yelled to my sister.
Ten minutes later, Emily walked up the stairs. She walked over to the
stove with a green plastic bowl in her hand and she got her food. With out
even looking at me, she headed back to the computer desk.
“You’re WELCOME!” I cried after her. Gosh, teenagers.
I hadn’t finished, when my big, and I do mean BIG, brother walked in
the door. His name is Kevin. He’s in 8th grade and is already 6’ 6”. He plays
defense on his school heavyweight football team.
“Hey Kasey, if Krystal calls, tell her I’m waiting for her at the
mall in our usual meeting spot. K?”
“Krystal is Kevin’s girlfriend. They go on dates by riding their
bikes wherever they want to go.
“Yeah, whatever.” I replied, trying to read the comics.
Kevin grabbed his helmet and left as quickly as he came in: as slow
as a 3-toed sloth.
I finished my lunch and went to the living room with my phone and
school directory. I yelled to Mom, “Hey Mom? I’m getting a game of capture
the flag together, Alright?”
“Okay honey!” she yelled back from the family room where she was
watching Ohpra Winfree. She’s mad in love with it.
I opened up to the first page of the directory. I turned and turned
until I got to the “K” page. I wasn’t until I was dialing the number that I
realized I didn’t need the directory for the number I was calling. Tara
Kerry: my best friend.
It rang. Then her brother, Brad, picked up.
“Hey, it’s Kasey! Tara home?”
“Yeah, hang on a sec!” He said as he put down the phone. “Tara!
PHONE!” he yelled up the stairs.
Tara came on the line, “Hey Kasey, sup?”
“I’m getting a CtF game together. Wanna join?” I asked eagerly.
“Uhh, yeah sure. Nothing’s on the schedule today!”
“For once” I thought. “Okay! 3 o’clock at my house!”
Let me explain a little about Tara and mui! We met in kindergarten.
Our cubbies were right next to each other and I kept grabbing her homework. I
ended up having to drive to her house at least once a week. And that was just
the beginning.
Then in first grade, we both signed up for the same hip-hop, tap, and
ballet classes. Mom got sick of driving me, so I’d walk to Tara’s house and
get a ride the rest of the way there. We were also in the same school class.
In second grade, the relationship grew even more. Tara moved in to
the house next door that year and that’s where she is now. That was also the
year that she stuffed on of my sandbox toys down the sewer in my backyard.
In third grade, we had EVERYTHING in common. Same clothes, same
haircuts, same dance schedule, we even liked and disliked the same foods.
That continued on through fourth grade.
In fifth grade, Tara also developed a crush on the same boy as me.
You know, I share many things with her, but this is one thing I’d rather keep
to myself.
Sixth grade just got better. We had the same schedule and our lockers
were right next to each other. Thankfully we were able to pick our own seats!
And here we are, the summer after sixth grade. Now let me pull you
back in.
“Okay! I’ll see you then!” Tara said and she hung up.
Then I called all my friends from school and I was able to form
teams. Each with 6 people. It was going to be so sweet.
“HEY! He’s past no-man’s-land!!! GET HIM!” I screamed.
Everybody was running around, trying to plot against the other team
or trying to get around them to their flag. Though it might seem like chaos
to everybody else, but to us, its AWSOME chaos! Everyone was having fun.
Just then, Tara crossed the boundaries back into our land
squealing, “I got the flag! I got it! We won! We won!”
Our whole team swarmed around Tara along with the other team edging
closer to make sure it wasn’t a joke.
David from the other team said, “Yeah, she’s got it. Water break!”
and we all went inside.
Now Emily was sitting at the kitchen table text messaging on her cell
phone with one of her friends. She asked, “So, who won?”
Psh, as if she really cares. “My team did,” making it sound as
obvious as pawsible.
“Well, next time you play, clue me in alright?”
I Shrugged.
After our water break, we went outside and played capture the flag
until 6ish. Then we switched to ghost in the graveyard until everybody’s
parents arrived. Everyone said they had a great time! I had to agree with
them. It was one of the best times of my life.
When everyone was gone, I went inside, changed in to my dance outfit,
and set one of our timers right next to my head. I fell asleep with a smile
on my face.
I awoke fuzzy, wondering how long I had been asleep. I looked at the
clock. 7:15 pm. Okay, I was asleep for half an hour. Not too b- WAIT!!! I was
15 minutes late for dance! Upstairs, Mom was watching TV. “MOM!! I need to
get to dance! NOW!”
We rushed into the car and raced towards the dance studio. While we
were going around a corner, I suddenly felt my head hit the dashboard. I was
out like a light. I heard loud noises around me. Voices giving order, like a
catastrophe and just happened. What happened? I felt my body being lifted
from…where am I?
