Chapter 1-Big Shopping Trip
Bzzz Bzzz Bzzz. I woke up to my alarm going off. After a quick look around my room I put my face into my pillow. I started to fall back to sleep only to find my covers being forcefully ripped off my body. I shivered from the cold air.
“Mom” I said in a sleepy voice while rubbing my right eye
“It’s time to get up Crystal, we have a busy day ahead of us. we need to go shopping for the Christmas dinner”. She said in a cheerful voice
I turned around and went back to sleep. My mom then forcefully picked me up which wasn’t that hard considering my size. I was 4’4, Which was really small for a 16 yr old. I hate my height. I was always picked on by other kids and treated like a baby.
“when I tell you time to get up it’s time to get up, or do I have to bathe and change you like a baby.” my mom said with a serious face
“No!” I said fast without a second thought
She knows I hate when she treats me like a baby.
She then let me down on my purple carpet.
“We will be leaving in half an hour be downstairs by then. Well stop at Mc. Donald’s for breakfast” She said with a smile
Once she left my room I went to my dresser to get cloths. I got a pair of pink panties with a hello kitty print on it, A pink skirt and a yellow, short sleeve shirt with a picture of the sun on it. I look at my cloths and thought they looked to childish, but my parent always buys my clothes for me. I think they buy them on purpose.
I then went to the bathroom to take a quick shower. After my shower I was fully awake and headed down stairs. My black hair looks shiny in the light from the water. My mother was just finishing putting make up on.
“You ready” My mom asked
“Yep just need to put my shoes on.” I answered
My mom took the towel from my hand and began to dry my hair.
“You don’t want to catch a cold do you”
On the ride to McDonalds we didn’t really talk.
“Your father will be late tonight” She said letting out a sigh
“OK” I told her
I was use to him not being home. He always had meeting to go to.
When we got to McDonalds I saw the kid’s area. Even though I was 16 I still liked playing in the play area. I noticed we were going to the drive thru instead of going in. I began opening my mouth only to hear my mom say.
“We can go in another time. We need to go shopping today”
I started to pout but stopped after hearing what my mother said next
“If you pout I wont get you anything from the store”
I looked at her and could see she wasn’t kidding, so I turned around to stare at the play area. I heard the person from McDonald ask what
“Yes I’ll take two cheese burgers,1 large fries and 2 med cokes please”. My mom said.
We ate while we went to the mall. We were also shopping for gifts for my cousin. He was a year Younger than me but was a lot taller than me. Once we found a parking spot that was close to the front we went into the mall. The mall was huge to me. I held onto my mom’s hand like a little kid would. She didn’t mind she knew crowded places scared me. We first looked at some clothes for my cousin. I didn’t really care what we got as long as we got out of the mall. My mom took forever. I started to notice the urge to pee and decided to ignored it. I didn’t want to use the public toilets at the mall.
“come on help pick something out” My mom ordered
I started looking, while the urge to pee became stronger. It was becoming harder to ignore. I picked out a black shirt and blue jean. My mom got my cousin size from his parent, while we were checking out the items my mom could see me going from one foot to the other try to forget about the need to pee. She then whispered into my ear that I look like I was doing the potty dance. I blushed bright red as my mother giggled. After we bought the cloths my mother
“Come on let’s go” My mother said
She led me to a bathroom. I really didn’t want to go but I knew it would be better than going in my pants. I rushed into one of the stall and began to lift my skirt up when a little squirt came out I crossed my legs in a futile attempt to stop the now steady stream of urine that was soaking my pink panties and running down my legs making a yellow puddle around my shoes. I began to cry while my mother came in to see why I was taking so long. She heard me crying and could tell by the puddle that I didn’t make it. My mom then locked the door behind her. She knocked on the stall door.
“Sweetie, baby are you okay” She asked with a concerned voice.
As I heard baby I began to cry louder. my mom realized her mistake too late to change it.
I opened the stall for my mom to come in and see what happened. She saw my puffy red eye and began to hug me. She said comforting word for a while before I finally stopped crying. I couldn’t believe what just happened. I was a 16-year-old acting like a little baby. Peeing my pants and crying into my mother shoulder while she carried me saying southing word like it ok, don’t worry, it will be all right. She grabbed my jacket out of her bag. She always brought just in case the weather changed on us. She wrapped it around my waste saying This will hide my accident. We began to leave the mall when I heard a voice from behind me say “that girl peed herself.” I knew my mom heard because picked me up and began to walk faster toward the door. I began to cry again. My mom began to pat me on my back
“is that crystal?” I heard from the crowd.
I thought my life was over a group of kids from my school saw me. They began to snicker and giggle at me. One of them took a picture. I knew my school life was over. By Monday everyone at school would know what I did.
By the time we got back to the car I had snot running down my nose. I looked like a wreck. My mom placed me in the back seat. It was silent the whole way to the house. All I could think is that those girls were going to tell everyone that I peed myself at the mall and cried like a baby to my mom. We got back home and I went straight to my room not even a stop at the bathroom to clean up. I was too embarrassed. I just wanted the day to end. I fell onto my bed and began to cry again.
My mom came in 15 min later.
“Hunny I have to go to the store to get the food do you want anything? she asked in a soft voice.
“n-no” I said as a tear dropped from my eye.
She came over and kissed me on my check and pulled my hair out of my eyes before she left.
“It will be okay” she whispered into my ear
She pats my head before telling me to take a shower before going to sleep.
I just nodded as she left my room.
