EMMA'S POV -
"Brandon, who is it?" I called out. My eighteen year old brother was on the phone the instant it rang. I think he's getting really worried about our parents. They left for a meeting at a friend's house three hours ago and before they left, Mum told me it'll be only for about an hour.
"What???? who are you anyways, telling me this crap" Brandon yelled into the reciever.
"Brandon, whats wrong? "I asked with pleading eyes. My brother never gets mad unless something was terribly wrong. He look at me with anger in his blue eyes that are now darker than usual. I take that as a cue to be quiet. I know he was going to tell me after the phone call so I nodded my head and went back to texting my best friend, Sophie Millers.
"What???" Brandon yelled the second time. "You don't even know my parents. I don't believe you".
"Brandon". He looked at me and held up his finger. Ding dong, Ding dong. Brandon nodded at me then glanced at the front door. I got off my chair and went to answer it. Who could it be? I wondered. I opened the door to find Sophie standing the the doorway. She lunged at me the second I opened it and hugged me tightly.
"I'm sorry, so sorry", she said still holding onto me on tightly.
"Soph, I need to breathe". I said. She released me and stepped back. " What's wrong?" I asked. She looked at me with wide eyes.
"You don't know?" she questioned me lifting her left eyebrow.
"Know what?". I feel like an idiot, not knowing what she was talking about. Usually i would be the first to find out everything and here i was, still standing in the doorway confused.
"I think I should come in, don't you think?" she asked. I nodded and stepped aside. She strolled past me and sat down on the couch.
"Sophie, we were texting like a minute ago, how come you couldn't just told me what all the big news was all about?" i asked.
" I thought you knew and needed some company right now". She said. I stared at Brandon, just noticing that he was being quiet all of a sudden; his face pale and eyes widen.
"can someone tell me what's going on?" i asked, glancing from Sophie back to Brandon then back to Sophie again.
"I'll tell her", Brandon said quietly. "Mum and Dad died."
