“Hurry, up Tabitha! We’re going to be late for school!” I heard my 14-year-old sister, Julie’s voice calling me. “It’s only 7:54. Why do we have to get up?” I asked, half asleep. “Because,” she replied with attitude, “it’s Saturday! Tricked you! Ha ha ha! How could you fall for that again?” Julie fell on the floor laughing. “You didn’t trick me!” I said stubbornly, “I knew it was Saturday!” “You so did not!” she said. “Did too!” “Did not” “Did too!” “What’s with all the arguing?” asked our mother, coming up the stairs. “Arguing?” I asked, “We weren’t arguing.” I lied. “I heard shouting.” said my mother and put on her “don’t-lie-to-me-again” look. “Why were you arguing?” she asked seriously. “Julie tricked me into thinking that it was a school day and I knew it was Saturday.” I replied honestly. “But it’s Wednesday.” said Mother. “What?!” Julie and I asked at the same time. “Just joking.” laughed Mother and we laughed too. “It’s Monday.” “Oh no!” moaned Julie. “was supposed to finish my essay last night! Oh, Mrs. Newhanger is going to kill me!” I laughed at Julie quickly, but Mother’s eyes stopped me. “Well, you’ll have to tell Mrs. Newhanger the truth.” said Mother, “I’m surprised at you, not doing your homework. You didn’t even tell me that you had to do an essay. Both of you get dressed and have your breakfast. It’s 8:09 already.” After we ate breakfast, we walked out the door and found ourselves on a red, crater-covered land.
