practice for the HSPE test

The evening hadn't shifted into morning when Sylva's alarm buzzed, she swiped randomly knocking it to the floor, and rolled out of bed to retrieve it. Frozen on the broken clock's face was "4:45am". She hated waking up so early, but it was necessary to walk to her school. After floating through breakfast, evading the vicious cat and picking out clothes, she finally arrived at the restroom. Preoccupied by the observation that her hair was going to take more work than normal, she didn't notice the peanust butter her little sister had put on her brush!
