1 The application

"What're you doing?" Was the first words Rosie says when I finally answered her call.

"On my bed." I answer back.

"Be more specific!"

"I'm laying on my stomach on my bed?"

"Seriously, what're you doing right now?!?!"

"I'm doing your mom."

Rosie hangs up.

I don't get why she wants to know what I'm doing. I'm only filling out an application.

bling Someone sent me a message, most likely Rosie.

There's no way my insomnia would let me go to sleep.

click click Done! I've finally finished the application! Hmmm, it's only 3:47. I should do something, but what should I do? Oh! The 24/7 store should still be open. I put on my dirty shoes, and walk out the door. I made sure to lock up, I don't want anyone stealing my trash!

After a 10 minute walk, I've finally arrived at the store. I grab a cart and went inside. I need to restock on my gummy supply, so I headed to the candy aisle. I hum while trying to decide which gummy candies I want. I'm definitely getting orange gummies!

I now have orange gummies, sour gummy worms, gummy burgers, and airheads. Since I have my desired candies, I went to get necessary stuff. Once I'm done getting everything, I went to the self checkout and bought everything.

I should really learn how to drive. Walking while carrying groceries is pretty hard for a noodle like me. I arrive home and spot a figure sitting on my front steps. As I get closer, I recognize Rosie.

"Aren't you suppose to be asleep right now?" She flinches when she heard me.

"And shouldn't you be trying to sleep?" Rosie stands up.

"I'm too tired to sleep." I unlock the door and let Rosie in first before going inside.

"So what'd you get."

"I got some gummies and ice cream, wanna share?"

"Do you have airheads?"

"I bought them just for you."

Rosie and I start putting the groceries away while talking about how worms wiggle. After putting everything away, we sat on the coach, eating candy and watched Umbrella Academy.

"Dolores isn't just a mannequin!" I argue with Rosie.

"A mannequin is a mannequin!" She argues back.

We argued back and forward for about an hour. After arguing, we chilled out.

Rosie rested her head on my shoulder, "my parents were fighting again."

I sighed, "you should sue them for whispering too loud." We both giggle.

"I think they're getting divorced because of me." Rosie's voice gets shaky, "I'm scared."

I hug her tightly. "It's not your fault. You haven't done anything wrong."

I let Rosie cry on my shoulders.

2 months ago, Rosie finally came out to her parents as lesbian. Her dad was very supportive, but her mom doesn't approve. Ever since she came out, her parents have been fighting over what's right and what's wrong. I know that they aren't just fighting about Rosie's sexuality, compared to the other things her parents fight about, the Rosie argument is a small situation. I knew her parents weren't getting along since the first time I've met them.

It's just wrong to use their child's sexuality as an excuse to finally fight over everything they've been having problems with.

"I should adopt you." I tell Rosie when she finally stops crying.

She laughs, "I'm older than you."

"Then how come the oldest is the crybaby?"

"Oh shut up!" Rosie throws a pillow at my face.

Her personality came back.

"I would throw a pillow back, but I know you're tired. So time to sleep little one!"

"There's nothing little about me!"

"Your tits said something else."

She throws another pillow at me. "You have a death wish bitch?!"

We both start laughing.

We cleaned up the candy mess we made and headed for my room. Rosie puts on my bunny printed pjs and fell asleep instantly when her head hit the pillow. I put on a dino printed pj, instead of sleeping, I decided to watch Shrek.
