Told Fate (1)

Told Fate (1)

The most annoying sound rang across my room -the alarm clock- startling me from the wonderful dream I know I couldnt continue even if I were to lie down back.
I dragged my lazy morning self to the bathroom. After my bath, I got ready for school. This is usally a 45 minutes routine. I read my Bible verse for the day befor heading to the living room for the family devotion.
After our 15 minutes family devotion, its time for breakfast but I didnt join them immediately because I am looking for my sandals. My parents are not early-workers. They go to work after we leave for school.
I have two brothers, the first is Jeremiah who is 18 (older than me with 3 years). He is presently writing his WAEC in the same school I attend. He is quite protective as well as annoying sometimes. And then there is James who is 12 and in JS 1. He is an example of a typical younger brother – troublesome.
I continue the search for my sandals. I know James hid it but this time he did a good job.

  1. the wonderful dream I know I couldn’t continue even if I were to *lie down back.* (go back to bed)

    (Usually)After our 15 minutes (of) family devotion, its time for breakfast but (today/this time) I didn’t join them immediately because I am (was)looking for my sandals.

    Ok…Nice flash story, and I feel your use of a particular tense was not consistent. You started with describing the day with a past tense then switched to a present tense….KEEP WRITING.
