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?


11. Small Talk

Dinner turned out to be beef stew. Angela probably can't boil water, but I fake enthusiastic and rant about how delicious it is. The family makes small talk as we sit at the round table. "So, Emily, what school did you attend before..." Max's mother's voice trails off. "Oh, nothing special, 5th Avenue High School," I answer. "What year?" "Junior." She smiles. "Ah, Maxwell is in his Junior year as well." "Mom, I am not a Maxwell. I am a Max." Maxwell/Max's mom rolls her eyes. I can't record the whole boring conversation, because you'd fall asleep, so let's skip ahead.
