A Little Excerpt
On Saturday October 8th, Levi Cranston woke up on the couch in the common area. The night before, he had fallen asleep at the dining room table because he had taken some cold medicine which helped him sleep better. It was 10:15 when he found himself sleeping on his stomach on the couch. The only person who was there with him was his mom.
"Wake up, sweetie," Mrs. LeVole-Cranston said while shaking him gently.
"What?" Levi replied softly in his sleep. He sounded very stuffed up.
"It's 10:15, hon."
"How are you feeling?" she asked.
"I dunno," he replied, sounding more stuffed up than before.
"We are actually going to see your cousins perform live at 1:30."
"We've got time."
"They wanted us there by noon."
Levi slowly got off the couch and headed toward what was his bedroom when his permanent address was here. It is nice, though, because his place is not at all far away from his parents' house. A lot of his family lives around the area. At least in Northwest Indiana. And Levi's cousins were performing in Crown Point, so that is not far away at all.
Levi did not take a lot of time to get ready for the day. But, once he put on some new everyday clothes, he fell back asleep on his futon in what used to be his bedroom. He now uses his old bedroom as one of his work places for his job, as it is mostly virtual. But he was still so exhausted, even though he got at least twelve hours of sleep last night. His little sister, Evelyn Maeve, walked into the room to check on him.
"How you doin'?" Evelyn Maeve asked her older brother of about nine years.
"I'm a little sick," Levi replied, sounding very stuffed up. His face was red, and he had bags under his eyes. He did not look well at all.
"I see that. So sorry!"
"Yeah. Me, too. I think my friend, Andrew Grzedek, might have given this blasted cold to me."
"Alyssa's brother?" Evelyn Maeve clarified.
"Well, hopefully you'll be okay during the concert."
"I should be. Once we get home, I'm just gonna take it easy."
"Probably a good idea."
Levi was still resting on his futon for a bit, while Evelyn Maeve was drawing some cartoons at his desk. They had a little bit of time to kill. And the concert would only last for about two hours. Levi already had a list of movies that he wanted to watch once they came home. And he and their dad might also consider watching the baseball game on TV.
"What movies have you decided to put on when we get home?" Evelyn Maeve asked.
"I have a lot of ideas, but I might also want to put on baseball," Levi replied.
"Because it's my favorite sport to watch and play as well."
"I thought your favorite sport was tennis," Evelyn Maeve remarked.
"Well, it is. That's the sport that I'm the best at, but I also like to watch baseball, basketball, hockey, and soccer. Football is fun to watch on some occasions, but I wouldn't play it," Levi said.
"And wrestling too, right?"
"Well, hopefully we get to watch a movie."
"Well, we can."
