Summer Plans: A Short Story

Leave a comment


“So now that summer’s over, we have to go to the beach and the amusement park and do everything!” said Sariah, who lay on her bed contently after the last day of school. “What should we do first?”

“I’ve been thinking about this for a while, and I started coming up with a schedule,” replied Annie from her seat on Sariah’s desk chair. “I was thinking, how about tomorrow we leave at 8 and spend the whole day at the beach, and then we do the same the day after for the park?”

“Whoa, slow down there,” said Fermin, startling both girls who thought he was sleeping on the ground before he spoke up. “We had to get up at 6 for school everyday for weeks. Why do you want to keep me from sleeping any longer?”

“Well, you’re always sleeping,” muttered Sariah.

“Well, sleep just so happens to be my one true love. Forgive me for wanting to spend more time sleeping.”

“Either way, Fermin’s right, Annie,” said Sariah. “We just got out of school and we have two months to do fun stuff. Why pack it all in now and ruin our already damaged sleep schedules?”

“Now you’re talkin’ my language.” Fermin grinned.

“But if we do more now, we can fit even more in later on, so we can do more fun stuff this summer,” defended Annie.

“Yeah, but I’d rather just spend some time hanging out with you guys normally too. It’s just as fun,” said Fermin.

“Let’s just have fun, and do things when we feel like. We don’t need a plan to have fun. Let’s just have fun on our own,” said Sariah.

“Alright,” said Annie, slightly begrudgingly, as she tossed the paper with her plan on it in the trash.
