*today's my birthday!!* was the first thing 7 year-old Kayla thought as she bolted
upright in her bed. It was the day before Halloween and she had school as usual.
Kayla ran to get ready for school. She put on a blue t- shirt with a glittery panda
on it with a pair of blue jeans with rips in the knees. Kayla brush her waist length
black hair and put it in a ponytail. As soon as she was done getting ready, she ran
down the stairs and found her mom making breakfast. "Good Morning, Mommy!" Kayla
shouted happily as she sat down with a bowl of cereal. "Good morning Kayla. Isn't
today a special day?" her mom asked, pretending not to know what day was today.
"Today's my birthday!" Kayla said beaming. Soon Kayla noticed out the window that it
was almost time for the bus to come. 'I gotta go, bye mommy! I love you!!" She
shouted with her bookbag slung on her back."Ok! See you sweetie! I'll have a cake for
you when you get home!"*Yum! Cake!" Kayla thought as she got outside. Right then, the
bus came, so she had to go straight to the bus.
"MOOOOOMMY!! I'M HOOOME!!!" Kayla imedeatly shouted as she came inside the house and
walked into the living room. "mommy?" she murmured. Nothing but silence returned her
question. Kayla walked intothe kitchen. The only thing that escaped from kayla's lips
was a scream as she saw the scene before her. Blood everywhere and her mother laid on
the ground, dead. A knife potruded from her chest. Her eyes, cold and lifeless. A
note was in her right hand adressed to Kayla. Tears welled up in Kayla's sky blue
eyes and fell, white hot, then ice cold down her face. Kayla knelt next to her mom,
hugging her and tears falling faster now. First her dad at 5, now her mom. Kayla let
go of her hand and picked up the note. It read on the front, ' Dear Kayla, I love
more than anything. But if you're reading this, you know my time has come. I hoped to
be able to tell you this but it's too late. Please go to your aunt and live with her.
Please don't open this note until your 14th birthday. This note will tell you
everything you need to know. I hope you know I do this because i love you. love, mom'
Next to her mother's body, Kayla saw a mark. The mark had a snake entwined with a
sword with a circle surrounding. *Odd....* Kayla thought, still drowning in tears.
And with that, she left to pack and leave for Auntie Brooke.
next chapter out later!^.^
