Evelyn opened an eye sleepily. Once again, another day will be wasted. She slid off of
the antique bed and made her way up on her feet. It was six in the morning, not a good
time for her to be up, but she knew she'll be late for practice if she doesn't hurry.
Quickly putting a plaid skirt and a black tanktop on, she ran to the bathroom to brush her
teeth and take a shower, then she was all set. As she walked up the stairs to go out the
front door, a sticky note was pressed against the wooden door. Peeling it off, Evelyn
We are going to be on vacation for a while. I didn't think you could come, with all the
practices and school coming up soon. Take care of the house.
She read it over again to check for anything else, then crumbled it up into a ball and
shoved it in her pocket. It's true, she does have little time to take a break. Still
though, the house felt lonesome without her there. Evelyn sighed, then opened the door.
She caught a whiff of jasmine and smiled gently as the thought of Ms. Alice came through
her head once more. Of course, Ms. Alice isn't her real mother; In fact she never knew her
mom or dad before. All her memories from being a baby to the age of eight have been
completely erased- except for one.
Helping herself to some waffles, she tried to remember anything, just anything at all,
about her past. All that came to her head was a searing pain to her neck, and a young

couldn't think straight when Evelyn tried to reminence. Evelyn finished her simple
breakfast and got on her fuzzy white jacket and some knee-high military boots. 'Yesterday,
I think they said it might be snowing.... better get a coat on,' Evelyn thought as she
walked from one place to another, Evelyn nearly tripped over Coco, her pet Yorkie, who was
sleeping in the middle of the living room. He began to stir, and nuzzled against her leg
tenderly, as a greeting for a new morning.
Feeding Coco some dog treat cookies, she cuddled with him for about ten minutes, then
set him down on his dog bed, where he could sleep for a few more hours until she gets
home. "I wish i can be like you, Coco..." Evelyn whispered, stroking his warm fur. When he
finally fell back to sleep, Evelyn stood up and began to walk out the door. As soon as she
went, the sun hit her in the face, blinding her. "Ahh! Stupid sunlight! I don't know how
humans can stand that light!" She staggered forward, trying to block the sun with her
hands. Turning toward her friend Lucia's house, she ran quickly to avoid any unnessary
sun. She leapt inside the house without even knocking and collapsed tiredly. 'I HAVE to
buy myself an alarm clock sometime this week,' Evelyn thought aloud, standing up and ready
