Just because I’m telling you this right now, doesn’t mean I’m alive. I could be lying 6 feet under in my quaint, little backyard for all you know. Or maybe I’m wrapped in my covers enjoying a Nicholas Sparks’ novel and simply loving life. Which is true you ask? You’re just going to have to wait and see as I recount how my life changed drastically after one particular day.
Let me begin with a little background information. That, right there is the place I call home. You can say that my family is pretty “white-picket fence”, minus the golden retriever. I live with my mom, dad, and unfortunately, an annoying younger brother who goes by the name of Zach.
My parents have one of the most loving relationships that I have ever seen. They are absolutely adorable together and I wouldn’t know what I would do without them. As for my brother, he’s a typical thirteen-year-old boy who loves playing COD. You must be wondering why he’s shirtless. Don’t worry, I ask myself the same thing too.
Oh! I forgot to mention myself. For all of you that don’t know, my name is Elena (pronounced Eh-lay-nah) Adams . I’m a junior at Easton High, which is only a few short blocks from my house. Easton High, be sure to remember that name! It’s crucial to the story that I’m about to tell you.
Now, where should I begin...?
