I wake up to my phone alarm jangling, not even aware I’d fallen asleep
at my desk. Damn it, the phone’s all the way across the room to keep me
from being distracted by it. There’s a crick in my neck, and my foot’s asleep.
There’s also dried drool on my cheek, causing my blonde hair to stick to my
face. The paperwork my tyrant of a boss demanded I finish by this morning is
a crinkled mess. I’d hoped I could get it done quickly last night and then
study for an hour or two before bed. But the exhaustion from working all day
for a music industry dictator and attending restaurant management classes at
night is obviously taking a toll.
Angry tears spring to my eyes as I drag my numb foot across the
bedroom to silence my alarm. I not only didn’t finish the work I needed to,
but I didn’t get any studying done either. There’s no chance I’ll be able to
grab even a few minutes to myself to study once I’m at work. My boss works
non-stop and expects me, as his assistant, to keep up the same intense pace.
I’ve never even seen him eat except at lunch meetings, and I’m sure that’s
just so nobody else suspects he’s actually a robot programmed solely to work.
I try to calm myself down, stealing a few minutes to imagine the faroff future when I’m running my own restaurant. I can picture the shiny,
spotless, and efficiently run kitchen, my head chef showing me the night’s
menu, and then the hostess telling me it’s another sold-out night. I jump
ahead in my daydream to the line of people on the sidewalk, none of them
complaining about the wait because my place is just that amazing.
My daydream is shattered by my screaming alarm again.
I guess I only
hit snooze the first time. I turn it off and sigh heavily. My dream is never
going to come true if I don’t find the time to study.
Desperation plants a seed in my mind that instantly takes root. I bite
my lip, knowing I shouldn’t, but I call my twin sister, Dani.
“Ella?” she asks, “Are you okay?”
I guess it makes sense that she’d ask, since I’m calling her at five in the
morning. I’m actually surprised she’s awake, but then I realize she must not
have gone to bed yet. Dani works nights, often not getting home until after
three or four in the morning.
“I need us to do a switch,” I say immediately.
She’s silent for a long time, and I fear she’ll laugh or tell me I’m crazy.
We haven’t pulled a switch since she asked me to break up with Benji
Harmon for her in tenth grade. He cried, and I felt horrible. I let him kiss me
—Dani—one last time, but he got too handsy, and I smacked him. This can’t
turn out any worse than that, and I’m desperate to get some dedicated study
