I wash myself without thinking, and before I know it I 'm out of the shower, drying myself. I comb my mop of hair, and brush my teeth. If I am correct, it 's about 9, which means I have an hour to eat and feed Yumi. I finish brushing my hair, and put it in a towel. I walk out of my bathroom and into my own room, looking in my drawers for a top and bottoms.
The Romans say that Proserpina was kidnapped by Pluto and that Pluto is forcing Proserpina to be his wife. A few months ago Proserpina the daughter of Ceres, goddess of grain, was kidnapped by Pluto, god of the underworld. Ceres is too sad to even grow plants on earth. People wonder if Zeus will step in and stop this. The Greeks say that Proserpina wanted to go to the underworld.
I slept in this morning since it was Saturday and since I didn’t have to leave to go to the mall with my mom until around 10. Once I woke up, I turned on my TV and started watching The Arrow, one of my favorite shows. It was almost 9:30, so I decided to start getting ready. As I astonishingly watched the show, I picked out my outfit for the day. I chose a pair of leggings, a Texas Longhorns shirt, and my checkered Vans and laid the clothes on my bed and let the shoes drop to the floor.
We got out a couple minutes later because my mom gathered some breakfast from the lobby for us. After breakfast we did some activities at the hotel. A little bit later we rented jetskis. ¨Wooohooo!¨ I shouted. Hours later we went to a deep sleep for the next day to pack up and head home.
In this chapter I will be writing about Darrow and Eo and both of their stories. The first character I will be discussing is Darrow himself. Darrow is the protagonist of the story who lives underneath the surface of mars and mines for something called helium 6 that can terraform the surface of Mars so that the other colors can live there. Darrow and his other fellow Reds were told that in a few generations the surface of Mars would be a liveable environment for people to live on. But what they don’t know is that the surface of Mars had been a liveable environment for generations.

September 1, 2008. I was 10 years old and had no idea how much my life was about to change. Maybe it's cliché because everyone always talks about how much their lives have been altered following the birth of a child, but again I was 10, I was nervous, and as much as I thought I wasn't, I was clueless. From the moment I lifted my head off of the pillow that smelt of my mother's Chanel No. 5 perfume, I'll never forget the first words I heard my aunt scream that day with the phone pressed against her ear, "it's a boy, it's a boy!"
As the monotonous alarm clock rang in my ear I sat up and faced the wall opposite my bed. Amidst all the photos, posters and other random items there was a blank space with a sticky note reading “reserved for college diploma”. Every morning I read the sticky note, reminding myself of the decisions I had made and the life they had lead to. As I stretched and stumbled out of bed I felt my feet hit the rug, containing indents due to years of the same thing. I maneuvered myself up the stairs and to the kitchen.
Every memory of that day had been permanently etched into my mind. I woke up like I usually did every morning. I forced myself to get out of bed, and sat up with a groan. I never wanted to get up because sleep was my only escape. I glanced around my room.
