"Have you seen Max today? He was supposed to phone me when he found Sean," I asked Pippa in form the next morning.
Pippa put down the book she was reading.
"That must have been who he was looking for earlier. Who's Sean?"
"Max's little brother," I looked at her stupidly.
"Oh," Pippa thought for a minute. "I thought Max was an only child."
That just made no sense. Had I been imagining Sean for the past thirteen years?
My thoughts were interrupted by Mr Carter.
"Could someone please tell me who Katy Murray is?" he asked. A few of my classmates shared confused looks.
"She's the new girl," I answered. "She started yesterday."
"Right..." Mr Carter still seemed unsure.
Either I'm losing it or something's going on here, I thought to myself. First Sean, now Katy. How can these people just vanish?
"Avril?" Pippa nudged me. "Are we still having that horror night on Friday?"
"Uh...yeah," I said, my thoughts miles away from Friday night.
