Surprises and Secrets

Meg has always lived an average life. She was an normal teenager. She had good grades. She cleaned up her room. She ate her vegetables. She had a normal family. Until one day, a stranger knocks on her door…


1. Tuesday

   Meg plopped her teal backpack on her antique desk.  Chewing her bubble gum as she flipped through her math textbook, she snorted thinking about how big of a joke her math teacher is.  Is he serious? she thought, Fifty problems due tomorrow?  She tried to concentrate on number one, but what Jeffery said that day at school kept bouncing around in her head.

   "At least I know what my dad's job is," he had said.

   "Ummm, what kind of a comeback is that?  I know what my dad does for a living.  He told me himself," Meg had countered.

   "Yeah, sure, whatever.  He totally couldn't have been lying."

   "I know what my dad does - "

   "Or do you?" Jeff had said with a smirk as he walked away to basketball practice.

   Or do you?  That's all she could think about now.  She did know.  Meg's dad had told her himself that he was a very engaged business man.  Stupid Jeff.  I know about my dad's job!  The only reason he isn't home is because his company makes him travel often, right? she desperately tried to convince herself.  She turned back to her math assignment.  Maybe numbers will be able to sort out this mess, Megan hoped weakly.  But after ten minutes of trying to figure out how to get -7x + 63y + 7x/1 - 63y to equal 0, she was interrupted by a soft knock at the door.

   Startled, she jumped as Mary, her housekeeper, came in.  "There is someone here to see you," she said.
