14x365: Laura

She had moved here from Alberta with her mother. Her father was going to join them when he was finished selling the seven golf courses they owned, where they had lions and tigers. When he got here they were going to live in a mansion. She used to go to private school, you know, and didn't know how to spell because kids from private schools didn't need to know how to spell. Her uncle was part of the royal family in England and her cousin was best friends with the president of the United States. She wore old, torn clothing and went to public school just to disguise the fact that she was so rich.

She invented a band called the Payolas and wrote all their songs and got them on the radio. Quite an accomplished career for someone who was only twelve years old.
