As Polly got up stairs she saw Owen on a bed crammed next to hers. He was reading
because he finish his homework hours ago. Polly sat at the little desk stuffed next
to the chest of drawers to do her homework. She had to move Owen's work aside to fit
her work. She Started with Math then Reading,Social Studies, Science, and ended with
Language Arts. It was nearly Midnight when she finished and Owen was still up. Almost
as if he was waiting.
"Why did it take you so long to finish?" Owen asked.
"She gives me more work then everyone else." Polly replied trying to keep the tears
"Thats unfair!" He said putting down his book.
All Polly could do was nod. Owen went to bed and Polly put all her things away. Polly
laid in bed pretending to be asleep intil she heard the even rising and falling of
Owen's breath telling her he was asleep. Polly got redressed in to a rain coat and
went and stood on the balcony on the second floor crying because of all the injustice
in her life.
"Whats wrong?" said a voice behind her startling her. Polly turned to see Owen in a
rain coat staring at her tear soaked and rain drenched face.
Polly only shook her head and sat on a chair next to her. Owen came over and gave her
a long hug. Polly just turned and cried into his chest.
"Why do they treat you like this, Polly?" Owen said stroaking Polly's wet hair.
Polly couldn't respond because she was crying too hard.
"Polly, You have to calm down. Your gonna wake up Mr. and Mrs.---"Owen didn't get a
chance to finish his sentence because at that moment Mr. Carter Slammed the balcony
"WHAT ARE YOU TOO DOING! IT"S THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT AND IT'S RAINNING!!" Mr.Carter
screamed. Heads poked out of doors all along the hall as Mr.Carter dragged Polly
through the house to the basement as Owen ran after him stuttering about how its not
"Your sleeping down here to night girl! And Everyone back to bed! You too mister! Mr.
All the heads slowly poke back in rooms but Owen stood firm.
" Mr. Carter, Sir it's not her fault! Leave her alone!" He said.
"Get to your room! Or you'll be down there with her!" Mr. Carter yellled.
Owen was then lead up stairs to bed where Mr.Carter stood intil Owen was asleep.
