snow-days

Snow days — those hallowed wintertime freedom fiestas — are on the brink of extinction, and it’s all thanks to technology. Instead of snuggling up in front of the television or sledding until the sun goes down, the pupils of tomorrow can now look forward to lessons and homework on their days off.

Now you can be like me- a crotchety old person who bitterly glares through the glass of their cubicle as children run and play during their summer vacation.

Thanks for reading!

She was dreaming sexy things with a certain grumpy sod when her mum woke her rather rudely.

“Rae, I don’t have time for this.” Rae groaned loudly into her pillow. “Its like a blizzard out, you’ve not no school. Snow day pet.” Rae lept from her bed running to her mother to plant a big wet kiss on her cheek. “I didn’t cause the snow day. Mid you’ll have to shovel while Karim and I have work.”

Linda was out the door within the next five minutes still telling Rae different chores to do as she didn’t have anything else to do. The second her mum was gone she stripped her leggings and went to the living room putting in her new CD and turning the volume up. And she danced, smiling to whole time. Really it’s the best way to listen to music, Rae thought. Yeah sitting with cute boys who invite you over is fun too, but it didn’t compare. Having no care in the world, just being able to move your hips in the beat, spinning and dare I say twirling through the house taking in every beat.

Once through the ten songs she was half out of breath, but she didn’t care, pressing the play button to go again. Halfway through the first song she slipped while attempting some an odd spiny thing she saw on some crap top 40 music video. Laughing and laying on her back she took in the lyrics now.

Snow days were good for two reasons. She could blast the stereo as loud as she wanted and she so whatever else she wanted. Her mum wasn’t there to nag her, though she probably would call- Rae didn’t have to pick up though.

Rae laid for a long time, her fingers having had memorized the buttons so if she wanted to re listen to one the songs she could easily fix that to be. In the small pause between tracks she heard knocking on the door. First she panicked as she wasn’t wearing any bottoms, pausing the music she yelled out one moment before charging up the steps.

She was out of breath pulling up the waist of her leggings and flinging the door open.

It was Finn.

Rae instantly remember she wasn’t wearing a bra, or proper clothes for that matter. And she hadn’t even washed her face or brushed her teeth yet either. She crossed her arms over her chest hoping the cold from the outside wasn’t getting to her.

“Finn.” She smiled. “Come in.” He stepped in past her, she shut the door behind him.

“Alright?” He nodded. Rae was confused. “Mind if I just put some proper clothes on real quick?” She asked but didn’t wait for him to respond. She slipped her shirt off and a bra over she shoulders before she noticed the drive had piles of snow around it. Her stereo started again before she put on her shirt again. Yelling out to Finn as she came back down the steps.

“Ya didn’t have to shovel for me.” Finn wasn’t in the lounge anymore. He was in the kitchen putting a kettle on the stove.

“I know, but I figure if I got it done before I came over we could spend more time together.” He smiled. Finally he took her in his arms, kissing her cheek, and hugging her tightly.

When the tea was ready they went back to the lounge to sit and listen to the music.

“Thank you Finn.”

“It was no trouble. I’m not sure why we had a snow day to be honest, its not that bad out.” They settled together with the music surrounding them. Sipping their tea and just resting in each others presence was good. It was almost like they were a couple. It was almost like Finn liked her in exactly the same way she liked him.

Suddenly Finn stood, turning the music down and taking their mugs to set on the coffee table in front of them.

“Rae, I need to talk to ya.” He sat back down facing her. Now Rae really hadn’t had a clue what was going. She bit her lip. Preparing for the worst that could happen she almost missed what he said. Mostly she missed it because he said it. It wasn’t like whe his index finger would ghost over her leg.

“Sorry what?”

“I like you Rae. Like proper like. I like you long hair, and you’re eyes always seem to glow, and you’re smile makes "grumpy old sod” Finn, want to smile. And you know your music, and you’re really kind, and there’s not one thing I don’t like about you.“

Rae was speechless. First he came unannounced to hers just hang out with her, like mates she thought. Since the sexy party they’d got on well. She was sure that’s what it was about. And now he’s telling her the exact things she wanted to hear from him. The kinds of things she never thought she’d hear from any guy ever let alone Finn.

"Finn, you don’t have to say this ‘cause you feel sorry for me.”

“I’m not saying anything cause I feel sorry for you. I’d never say anything like this if I felt sorry for ya. I don’t feel sorry for you. I like you Rae. You’re all I think about and I came over here to tell you cause I though maybe you might feel the same way.”

“Like real proper like me?”

“Dear I say that I like like you…” He raised his eyebrows and laughed with Rae. She wasn’t sure if she trust her mouth to say the correct words she was so stunned. Leaning forward a inch, keeping her mouth closed until it was pressed against his mouth. They kissed.

Snow days were good for three things. You could listen to music as loud as you wanted without nagging parents. You could do whatever you wanted like not wear pants. And you could snog boys on the sofa for the whole day.
