“Don’t do stuff like that!” he breathed. “I thought you
were crying or something.”
“Why? Were you a scared little saltine?” I asked.
Jonah groaned. “Shut up.”
“Well, the smart and pretty girl has to go make
breakfast because the smart and pretty girl is
hungry,” I stated before hanging up the phone. I
didn’t bother to listen to his response.
After I ate breakfast, Jeremiah and I decided to play
Monopoly. I was a bit nervous to play because
Jeremiah likes to get angry if anybody is doing better
than him. He also gets angry if you take the small
dog piece. He claimed that as his player the day we
bought the game.
The snow was still going strong at noon and
Jeremiah and I were still playing the game. “You’re
“I’m not! I’m the banker so whatever I say goes!” he
snapped as he took a couple of hundred bills from
the bank. I glared at him.
“No, that’s not the case! You can’t randomly take
money out of the bank!” I snapped.
He gave me a ‘duh’ look. “I know! It’s called a loan!
Besides, I’ll pay it back.” He retorted as he continued
I smacked his hand as he reached for more money.
“How much money did you take from the bank?” I
asked and he looked at his pile of money. He was
stacking more bills than the bank was! The doorbell
rang and I cautiously stood up while eyeing my
brother. “Put the money back.”
I walked towards the door and the bell was rung
again. “Hold your horses; I’m coming!”
I opened the door and a boy stood there with a
group of his friends behind him. They all had shovels
and I raised an eyebrow. They had hats and gloves
on, along with snow suits. I wasn’t dressed any
better. Way to look pretty with your sweatpants and
Tinkerbell shirt. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
“How may I help you?” I asked. Maybe they’re Jer’s

The boy in the front took off his hat and I
immediately recognized him. “Caleb.”
“Hey, Savannah; I didn’t think you’d remember me,”
he grinned and I nodded. Although I remember him,

of boys and a couple of shovels. “We’re here to see if
you need your walkway shoveled.”
I stared at them. “Uh, no, it’s fine. That’s my
brother’s job whenever it snows,” I replied casually.
“Okay,” he turned around before turning back with a
teasing smile on his face. “You never called me, by

guilty. I racked my brain for an excuse. “I looked for
you at school but I couldn’t find you.”
“I just got back from vacation. My family went out of
the country for New Year’s. We got back a few days
ago. I stayed home because of jet-lag…and I didn’t
finish the work I got before vacation,” he explained
with a sheepish expression on his face. I frowned.
“Didn’t your birthday pass?” I asked awkwardly and
he nodded. His friends started walking away,
“Yeah, and yours is coming up,” he smiled and I
nodded my head, kicking the snow off of my porch.
“Happy belated birthday; I’m sorry I couldn’t say it
on the day,” I apologized.
