(A soft knock on the door)
(Blakelynn walks in quietly, maneuvers around the mess and sits on her sisters bed)
(She softly shakes her)
(Whispers softly) Cora it’s time to wake up. You don’t want to be late on your first day of first grade do you?
(Cora shoots out of bed in excitement)
No, I got to get ready fast.
(With pleading eyes) Blake can you pick out my outfit and do my hair like mommy used to?
(Smiles sadly) Sure, you go get the hair supplies and I’ll pick out your outfit, then we can go have breakfast with Cameron. How does that sound?
(With a lit up smile) Ok sounds like a plan
(Cora runs off and Blakelynn walks into Cora’s closet)
(In the closet Blakelynn rummages around until she found the perfect outfit)
(Shouts) Cora! Come get your clothes and change.
(Cora runs into the room)
(Once dressed Cora goes back into her closet so Blakelynn can do her hair)
(Points to the vanity bench) Sit
(Cora obeys her sister happily)
(Brushes and braids Cora’s hair) Where are your hair bows at?
In the top drawer on the left with my hair ties.
(Blakelynn reaches around, opens the drawer and grabs one)
(Ties the bow in Cora’s hair) Ok, there you go munchkin. Now finish getting dressed and meet us downstairs for breakfast.
(Hugs her sister) Ok
(Blakelynn heads downstairs while Cora finishes up)
(Blakelynn walks into the kitchen and sees her loving boyfriend cooking)
(Turns around and smiles) Hey! You hungry?
(Smiles back) Hey! Yea I’m starved
(Cameron and Blakelynn share a tender loving kiss)
(Cora rushes down the stairs with a smile on her face and walks into the kitchen)
Good morning Cam.
Morning miss Cora. You hungry?
(Looks at Cora) Why don’t you help me set up the table so we can eat?
(Cora smiles and nods. The two then grab the needed supplies and set the table)
Breakfast is ready
(Cameron places food on everyone’s plates)
Thank you Cameron.
(Breakfast was eaten, while a conversation was happening)
