1. Chapter 1
I rolled out of bed and reached for my phone. No new messages I read. Angelique, my best friend, was away in Paris for the summer and now my parents decided they want to go too, but without me... I've never stayed home alone for one month before and I really didn't know what to do while everyone I knew was gone on vacation and I was stuck alone at home.
Oh by the way my name is Grace and I am 15 years old. I'm an only child, and I live in Arizona.
I could hear my mom yelling at me to hurry up and tell her goodbye. I went downstairs, told her goodbye, and then plopped down on the couch and turned on the news. I grabbed my laptop and browsed though all the new posts on Facebook. Soon I started to get tired and found myself drifting off to sleep. I awoke to the sound of my doorbell going off. I jumped up too fast and nearly lost my balance, but soon regained it. I open the door and nobody was there. I was about to go back inside when something caught my eye. On the steps lay 12 red roses, a card, and some chocolates right next to it.
