1. Chapter 1
I hope you like it!! XX
The sky is dark and the stars are barely there, hiding i guess. It's a strange thing to walk home alone in the dark.
I'd just finished closing the towns little, and only coffee shop- my part time job after school.
I've had my job for almost two years, but not for me, for my aunt. I live with her because my dad walked out on my mum and i when i was two, and my mum died from cancer when i was seven. Ten years ago.
So my aunt stepped up to plate and raised me as her own. She was depressed for a couple years after her sister- my mum- died, so she didn't have a job. She's trying to get back on her feet to support me but her career isn't taking off like she'd hoped. She's an aspiring writer, and she's written two novels but none of them have been published. She's struggling.
So i bring in what i can from my job to get us groceries and other essentials.
When i get home to my our quaint little, one story house i stop and just stare. I know it isn't anyones fault that i'm here now in this town with little to no money, but sometimes i find myself thinking, 'if i was better, would my dad have left us? Would i still be here with Aunt Lori right now?'
Sometimes it's hard to escape those thoughts, but i can when i have my music.
I silently walk up to our noisy front porch, tiptoeing because i don't want to wake my sleeping Aunt.
But thats when i see it. A bright red notice taped hurriedly to our screen door.
A notice of foreclosure.
