Dead Anyway

Emily Odell doesn't have the best life. When a hurricane hits and kills the family she loves, it's even worse. In the aftermath, the item left in the rubble she's most interested in is a business card. Weird much? Well, the card has the address of some crazy old gypsy lady on it, and Emily gets the idea that this woman might have something to do with the odd fact that everyone in the house but her died. Meeting the gypsy has a death curse involved, and Emily is determined to make the last days of her life the most memorable. But will she have enough time before death?


2. Possibilities

I slam my locker shut. Ugh, I hate geometry. "What's wrong, Emmywemmy?" I hate whoever just said that even more. I round on her and say calmly, "Don't call me that ever again." "Aw, but it's fun to torment you, Emmy," comes their reply. "Do not talk to me! Or torment me! Ever!" I yell, storming off in fury. I'm sick and tired of this crap. I won't tolerate it anymore. I won't, I won't, I won't! I'm close to the geometry room, and under teacher's watch I'm always safe. I don't reach it fast enough. That girl takes a hard blow at my chest, which knocks the wind out of me. I lean against the lockers, panting. "You stupid coward, get away from her!" comes a cry from the other side of the hall. Chloe Parkinson, the most popular girl at 5th Avenue High, stomps over and grabs the girl by her collar and slams her against the lockers. "Don't you dare hurt innocent people like that! If you do it again, you'll be damn sorry you did!" She flings the girl away and steps towards me. "Are you okay?" she asks. "Yeah," I say. "I'm fine. And thanks." "No problem," she answers. "I'm Chloe." She sticks out her hand. "I know," I say, shaking it. She looks puzzled. "How?" She must be joking - right? "Um, you're the most popular girl here. Everyone knows who you are." She looks even more confused now. "I - I am?" I laugh. "You didn't know?" "No!" she answers, laughing herself. This is so weird. No one has ever been nice to me before. Especially someone so popular! Is it possible that I made a friend?
