A Little Excerpt
It was Saturday March 25, 2017, and David and Brody Ingram were the only ones in their apartment in Merrillville, Indiana. Their friends and roommates, Adam Levistad and Andrew McCalsky, had gone grocery shopping and were probably going to be back in a couple hours. Adam also needed to look for a birthday present for a relative, since their birthday is coming up shortly. So, this was a very quite and somewhat peaceful morning for the two brothers. But it was raining outside.
It was nine o'clock in the morning, and David's alarm went off, sounding like an old alarm clock. The loud ring woke David up very slowly. He was sprawled out on his bed, with his head on a pillow toward the head board and nightstand where his phone was going off, and his feet toward the other side of the bed. David was sleeping on his stomach, with his comforter on top of his back. He obviously looked very comfortable, and it took him a while to wake up.
David was wearing his college hoodie and jeans from yesterday. The night before, he, Brody, Adam, and Andrew had gone to some bars in Crown Point, and when they returned, David did not feel like changing into his pjs. They came back to their apartment at 1:30 in the morning, and they wanted to watch some comedy shows for a bit before they went to bed. For some reason, they had also decided to plan their move to San Francisco. They are hoping to go out that way by fall of this year.
David still stayed in bed. He slowly turned off his alarm, but then he decided not to get up quite yet. He and Brody were planning to go over to the courts to play tennis later this morning, but Brody was probably not awake either. David had the absolute hardest time waking up, especially with the weird weather that has been going on lately. He could hear the rain coming down pretty hard from his window.
Somehow, he must have set his alarm clock to snooze. Because he fell asleep again, but his alarm had gone off an hour later. It was ten o'clock in the morning now, and Adam and Andrew were probably not back yet. They were pretty sure they were going to spend a lot of time with grocery shopping and finding the perfect gift for Adam's relative. David slowly woke up and turned off his alarm clock.
"Hey, David?" someone spoke somewhat quietly as he opened the door and slowly turned on the light in David's room.
"Hello," David responded quietly, closing his eyes as they were adjusting to the light. He was obviously not ready to wake up yet.
"We've been waiting for you for about an hour."
"We're planning to play some tennis," the guy stated.
"Oh. Adam? You're back already?" David replied, still quietly. He was wrapped around in his comforter. He looked very comfortable.
"Yes. It's me. Adam. Andrew and I did not go grocery shopping this morning."
"You didn't? Why?"
"We're going to tomorrow. And you guys are coming with us."
"Alright. Now what's this thing about tennis?"
"When you start moving, we were gonna go to the courts."
"Okay. I'll get up now."
