Chapter 2Mature

We left the theater and headed to get ice cream. I was asked to prom by one of the seniors traveling with us, and said yes. So far, a good night. Except for the nerd. I couldn't help but feel bad for him. The poor guy just had to ask in public though. If it would've been somewhere private, the blow would've been softer. So I guess it was his own damn fault.

After ice cream at Dairy Queen, Katrina drove me home.

Of course, the house was empty. My parents were out on another date. Trying to "rekindle their youth." I shuddered. Adults creeped me out.

Their was suddenly a knock at the front door. I became alert. (Hey, I've seen those CSI shows....)

"Hello? Is Adria Hallows home? This is Officer Andrews," said a man's voice, muffled by the thick french doors.

I immediately got up and opened the doors to reveal to officers in uniform. They both had very sad looks on their faces.

One took off his hat. "Miss Hallows?" he asked.

"Yes, " I answered warily.

He sighed. "I'm so sorry, but your parents were involved in an accident. They didn't make it. We are so very sorry for your loss."

I gaped at him and stood, rooted to the beautiful floor of my dead parents home.

Sorry for the short chapter, I had limited time. Laptop is broken, so updates will be scarce.
