“WHY did you buy all of that?” Laura’s parents asked with anger on their faces.
“You just told me to go shopping! I didn’t know you meant the groceries!” She replied, desperately trying not to get grounded.
“We don’t care!” Laura’s father yelled.
But I didn’t understand the instructions! Laura was screaming inside of her head.
“YOU”RE GROUNDED!” Laura’s parents yelled, walking off in opposite directions for ‘dramatic effect.’
Laura closed her bedroom doot and lay down on her bed, staring at the celling, wishing that she had paid more attention to what her parents had said.
