After discovering a lack of house keys onthe back porch, I went around to the front. There I found a note, written in my mother's barely legible scrawl.
" Dear Seraphena,
We could not find you, and Izzabel said you went to the beach, looking for a "Seam onster". I have no idea what that is, but I will find out when we return. Since we could not locate you, We had to leave. We should be back with in an hour. Please make sure Rainy does NOT leave us a present.
Be back soon,
It was in her sloppy, cursive wanna be hand writting. How sweet, she took the time to leave me a note.
Couldn't she have left me a key, as well?
