If I didn’t hurry, it would start. Without me.
My legs burned and cramped as I sped up. I winced in pain. Don’t slow down. Bursting through the front door, I dropped my backpack and sweater to the floor. I paused for a millisecond as I passed the kitchen.
No time for a snack. I’d rather starve than miss this surprise announcement. I half-sprinted/half-hobbled through the hallway and into the family room.
“HeyMomHeyDadSchoolWasGreatThanks,” I said in one big rush. I grabbed the remote and clicked the ON button. The TV screen lit up before me.
There they were.
