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?

"Come in," I choke, afraid of what Max will think of me. I let him down. Will he still love me? What if he found a beautiful girl while I was gone? I'm wrong. When the door opens, Max looks thrilled to see me. Angela is the one who looks still grave. " "Em!" Max cries. He runs over and hugs me, but the choked gasp I let out when he crushes my arm makes him stop. "What happened?" He asks. "I," I  say. "I feel as though I should not answer that." "How were you hurt? Did the Houma lady hurt you?" Max asks. "I fell," I say simply. "Fell where and when?" Angela pipes up. "In the yard near sundown." "Whose yard?" Max asks. "Yours. I don't know really what time it was. I think I was out there all night unconscious." Angela nods. "Max watched the yard, but I suppose he didn't see you." This breaks me down. "You wasted your evening looking for the likes of me? I was DRUNK, Maxwell. I drunk myself sick and crashed in your yard." I sob in hatred for my actions and myself. Max stares at me for a while, then kisses me right on the mouth. "That's okay," he almost sobs himself. "I was only worried you had tried to commit suicide." "What? No," I say uneasily. It has crossed my mind numerous times since the Houma disaster. "Promise," Angela says. "That you will never do that again." I won't, Angela. But I might die. Actually, I will. And I haven't even told you yet.
