The sound of an alarm clock could be heard blaring throughout the home of Miguel. He groaned as his mother burst through the door, yelling in Spanish. "Alright, Ma!" Miguel said while running his hands over his face, staring up at the ceiling before getting up and going into his bathroom. He ran the water and cuffed his hands underneath the warm water, leaning down then splashing it back in his face. He grabbed the cloth that he got earlier and dabbed it along his face as he let out a soft sigh, hearing his mother bang on the door. "Alright! Damn, chill." He said with the shake of his head as he walked over to his shower, turning it on as he went back in his room, getting his clothing ready for the day. He walked back into the now steam filled bathroom and showered. When he was done, he walked out in a t-shirt and boxer briefs then walked over to his bed, grabbing his black t-shirt and long pants, putting them both on. He then placed a hoodie over his black t-shirt, zipping it up midway before sitting down on his bed, placing socks and shoes upon his feet. He sighed while raising up from his bed and looking to see if he need to get anything, before leaving his room.
He walked downstairs, where his father, mother, brother and sister were sitting at the table. His mother spoke to him first. "Well, hello there. Good Morning to you, too." Miguel nodded his head up as his father leaned back in his chair, shaking his head at him. "What?" His father slammed his hand on the table then pointed at Miguel. "Boy, don't you what me, again. Ever. You got me?" Miguel rolled his eyes, letting out a sigh as his mother sat a plate of breakfast out in front of him. "I'm not hungry." His mother pointed at the food and spoke in a demanding tone. "I sat it in front of you. You will eat it." His brother chuckled as Miguel kicked him under the table. His eyes then shot towards his sister as she got up and emptied her plate in the trash, kissing their mother and father goodbye as she was off to school. "There's the bus." His mother spoke towards his brother as Miguel got up as well. "Your breakfast." Miguel pushed the hoodie onto his head, halfway. "I told you, I wasn't hungry." With him speaking those words, he was outside, his brother waved goodbye to him as Miguel ruffled his hands through his hair. "Take it easy, little man." He said while turning the opposite direction, walking along the sidewalk.
After a few minutes of walking, he met up with his crew at the stop sign and dapped them up before speaking. "Aye, what's on our agenda today?" His crew leader, Macho, shrugged his shoulders while waving his hands towards the other members. "What y'all want to do?" Miguel smiled then laughed while answering. "What we always do, smoke, get girls and drink." The other crew members laughed at him as they started walking. They talked and laughed, even pushed each other into the road, seeing if someone was going to get hit or not. Luckily for them, no one did. He loved being in a gang because he got respect and he respected his fellow members. "Aye, look at that girl right there." Miguel snapped back to reality while looking across the street. "Dude, we missed school again?" They all laughed at Miguel's attempt to be serious about school. "She looks feisty. I bet neither one of y'all can get her." They continued to stare as Miguel nodded while walking off. "I'll take that bet."
He ran across over to the female, speaking once he was on the sidewalk. "Aye, chica!" He said, coming to a brisk walk, walking beside her. "How are you doing today?" He asked while licking his lips afterwards. He waited for her to reply as he could slightly hear his crew teasing him to the fullest. He hoped that the female didn't hear their taunting rants as he waved his hand at them, mouthing for them to chill out. His crew just continued on watching the display, not believing that Miguel could get this girl.
