Joy’s Journal Part Six

“JOYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!”

I turned over and put my pillow over my head. “Be quiet Hope!”

“Oh Joy,” Savana Laughed. “We are at this boarding school, River Valley, not home.”

dscn42541                              I sat up. She was right. A bell rung. I realized that I had slept in my clothes and I hurried out of bed to change.

dscn42551                         I was trying to pull my hair into braids, when the bell rang.

“Is that the breakfast bell?”

“No Joy, that is the late bell.” She took off running, leaving me behind. dscn42561                                                                                               When I got to my class they were  doing names. I had had a hard time falling asleep the night before and I was really tiered.

dscn42581                                                                          The teacher was about as far away as she could get from me. I rested my head against the table for just a minute. And I fell asleep.  dscn42601                          I felt a tap on my head. “Hello?” The teacher said. “And what name do you have the honer of having?” dscn42611                           “Ummm.” I stuttered. “What was the question? Oh, I won’t know it. I fell asleep.” I admitted hesitantly.

“What is your name?”

“Joy Fully.”

Her expression softened. “It’s okay Joy. You can get a pass and go to the nurse’s office. Just try to stay awake from now on.” dscn42591                      The Teacher walked back up to her desk.

                          As I walked out of the room I saw a girl raise her hand.

“I forgot a pencil.”

“Then use Roberta’s!” She snapped.

Why was she being so nice to me? I wondered. Then it dawned on me. She knew about my chronic illness.
