The Bad Dream

By Shannon Jackson
1     "Brush your teeth before you go to bed!" Tallie's mom yelled from upstairs.
 
2     "Yeah, OK." Tallie barely looked up from her video game. She was at the end of the 4th quarter, and the score was tied on her Madden NFL. She knew her team could win this time.
 
3     "Tallie, are you paying attention to me?"
 
4     "Yeah, sure, Mom." Tallie's fingers were flying on the controls. Woo hoo -I'm going to WIN! she thought. The players from her team started celebrating on the field. This was it - she had finally won!
 
5     Tallie glanced at the clock. Uh-oh. Mom is going to be so mad that I'm not in bed. Tallie rushed to her room and quickly got into bed.
 
6     The next thing she knew her mom was standing at the door. Mom had a strange look on her face. Sheesh, what's up with her, wondered Tallie.
 
7     "Tallie, I told you if you didn't brush your teeth, this would happen."
 
8     Tallie wondered where Mom had found those weird looking pajamas. They were almost like the scrubs you see on doctors. Mom was pulling her up out of bed and leading her down the hall. Tallie couldn't figure out why Mom was acting so strange. She was muttering all kinds of things about too much candy and pop at bedtime. Lately, Tallie had been sneaking candy bars into her room after suppertime and hiding the wrappers in her garbage. How could Mom have found them?
