Emily and Katie's parents were on a Christmas/anniversary six week cruise around Europe, leaving the house to their two girls. Their parents felt that their daughters were old and responsible enough, since Katie was eighteen, and Emily was sixteen.
Emily and Katelyn were sleeping in her full-sized bed beneath lime green sheets and a black and white comforter. Katie was down the hall, sleeping in her purple and blue room, and Scott was sleeping on the other side of the house in the guest room, with white sheets and neutrally colored walls.
Scott woke up suddenly, breathing heavily from the nightmare he'd just had. And in the dim light of pre-dawn gloom, he smiled. It was an amazing idea, and he slid out of bed and got dressed, then walked outside.
