I loved spending my weekends playing video games all night with my friends. This night however, would change how I would spend weekends for the rest of my life. I was at my friend Guy’s house, and we had spent several hours playing Nintendo 64. Guy’s mom Debbie kept bringing us popcorn and drinks while we played; I always thought she was really nice, especially considering that she was a single mom.
“Your mom is so nice, mine practically ignores that I exist,” I said to Guy.
“Hey, that just means that you can get away with whatever you want, right?” Guy jested.
Secretly, I hated my parents and wished that I could just graduate and go to college somewhere far away. Until then, I would distract myself with video games. It got past 3am and I decided to go to sleep on Guy’s floor, grabbing one of the pillows off of his bed and a spare blanket from his closet.
“Don’t wake me up before 10 or I’ll kill you,” I growled at Guy.
