A cute little story, though it was kinda random. I found an error: "No knew messages from Emily" should be "new". Good luck in the contest!

HAHA! I enjoyed this quite a bit, even if it was random and ... strange. :)

i liked it, and the cool twist, but i think it goes too fast. like the hot dog thing and carl are all kinda irrelevant to the story -- i don't really think they have anything to do with it. and by the way...was the bathroom on the first floor? or the second?

LOL This is just hilarious! You've got a few grammatical mistakes that need fixing, but a quick look-over can fix that. Nice job XD

This is a strange story. Random, funny, and strange, but enjoyable. I found a few grammar mistakes:

Punching in the numbers, I stop by the hot dog stand. Handing the vendor a crumpled five, I wait for Carl to answer his phone. These are two of the same type of sentences, and it feels a little redundant. Maybe you should change one of them.

"Yo Carl whats up?" I manage through a mouthful of hot dog. Whats should be what’s, and I’m pretty sure there should be a comma in there somewhere.

"Were you sleeping?" I ask mocking him. There should be a comma between ‘ask’ and ‘mocking’. I personally think that it should just be, “I mock him” but you’re free to leave it as is.

"Yes." I can picture it now. Him rubbing his eyes moving his way too long brown hair out of his face, exhausted from a long day at work. There should be an ‘and’ between ‘eyes’ and ‘moving’.

I cross the street, and duck into an alley headed home. There shouldn’t be a comma in this sentence.

When I get there, I unlock the door. Again, no comma needed.

"I want you to get lost creep." There should be a comma before ‘creep’.

Despite the mistakes I found the story quite enjoyable and funny. Good luck in the contest!
