Suzy didn’t want to do what Mommy said. Daddy didn’t do what Mommy said. So Suzy didn’t have to do what Mommy said either.
“Susan Witherspoon, you fucking wait up for me! Right now! Or else!”
But Mommy was a whole big block away. And Mommy was what Mommy called “middle-aged,” so she couldn’t run really fast. So Suzy ran really fast into that funny, big ole building right behind another middle-aged lady who was going into the building. But this middle-aged lady had funny marks all over her face. Suzy got so close to the funny lady with marks all over her face that she could smell her perfume, just like Mommy’s perfume. But the lady was so busy texting she didn’t see Suzy.
The lady with the same perfume as Mommy went over to the counter and asked if there was an extra key to Unit 3. She was whispering and held up some money. Suzy thought it would be fun to hide behind her, then jump out and say “boo” to the really old lady behind the counter. But just then Suzy saw someone else jump up behind the really old lady at the counter. Then Suzy was glad she’d hidden behind the lady with the funny marks all over her face.
It was the really scary mean lady! From the little room with the man in it that didn’t move! And she looked even meaner now and was even holding a funny little knife!
The lady with the funny marks all over her face screamed. Loud. It hurt Suzy’s ears bad, but not as bad as Mommy snatching her up from behind and running out of that funny building.
