Emma pushed the old wooden door of the church and walked out. It was Sunday and unlike her mother and sister, Emma always went to church for Sunday prayers and sermons. As she continued to walk on the dusty road, she remembered how Cathy died.
Although the FBI agent gave her his number, she hasn't responded to him about his offer. She had dedicated her life in high school to study hard for the medical entrance exam and if she succeeded in giving any important evidence, she could go to one of the best universities. At the same time, she felt she would not get her hands on anything important. She felt that Stephen was innocent and may have nothing to do with the murders. Moreover, she felt was probably getting involved in something dangerous.
She felt guilty for not telling anyone at home about witnessing Cathy's death but she didn't want anyone to get angry at her. She had requested Sheriff Oscar not to say anything about this to anyo
Emma nervously ate breakfast along with the rest of the family. They all sat around a wooden circular table in the corner of the main hall eating their morning meal. Just before breakfast, Emma had received a call from Stephen reminding her about their date. He told her that he would pick her up in the afternoon for a lunch date.'What shouldIsay to everyone about it? I just met a guy and already decided to date him?It'snot likeIwantedtoevengo out. He blackmailed meforit. I shouldhavemade surethatAndre and I were alone.'thought Emma as she continued to eat slices of bacon.Mr Smith kept talking to them about how a famous actress made unreasonable demands at the resort."The moment she stepped inside the resort, she im
After breakfast, Emma went upstairs to her bedroom to change her clothes but before she could walk inside the room, Nancy dragged Emma to her bedroom and threw a bunch of red dresses on the bed."You refused to wear my favourite one so here are other red dresses.""Are you deaf? I told you that I won't wear any red.""Oh come on!! You are going on a date for the first time. You need to look good. You will look great in a red dress.""Nancy, let's be honest. I don't look good in anything. It is not worth trying it."She pushed Nancy as she walked past her. She stopped in front of the bedroom's door and turned her neck to look at her sister.
This was the second time she sat inside Stephen's car. Though she could sit very comfortably, she still felt very nervous. Ever since she saw Julia's ring, she felt scared and nervous. As soon as Stephan began to drive, Emma quietly sent Agent Jones, the photographs of Julia's ring and the marked American map through her cellphone. She was now waiting for his reply. "Are you feeling nervous?" asked Stephen. "A little," said Emma quietly "Let's play some music so relax you." Stephen increased the volume for radio music and Rihanna's believe it began to play. Almost an hour later, Emma realised that they were almost out of town. "Where are we going?" asked Emma, nervously. "Somewhere inside the woods," replied Stephen. 'Why so far away from town? He is planning to kill me?" thought Emma as Stephen parked his car on the side
It was a warm afternoon and though some areas of the town were still covered with snow, the bright sun made everyone feel warm. Many residents of Roseville came out on Sunday for watching a movie or going to restaurants. Those who had been working hard in the office could take a break and enjoy outside for a day.However, The Roseville Hospital remained busy even on Sunday. It was a huge white rectangular building in the middle of the town. It had a glass door along with a long metal handle for the entrance.Several cars were parked in front of the hospital. Several people could be seen going in and coming out of the hospital. On either side of the hospital were thick overgrown shrubs and trees.A small black crow flew swiftly across the sky. The crow looked at the hospital with its sh
Stephen carried Emma back to the canopy and made her sit on the chair underneath it. He asked her to show him his wound but Emma refused to show it Initially."I am not letting you go back to your home unless you do so," said Stephen."Alright! Don't touch it," said Emma.She slowly pulled her dress a little up and showed him a small cut near her ankle."You need to sit here quietly. I will just go and get the first aid kit from the car.""Stephen, please don't leave me alone. I think he will come back," said Emma." Emma, take your phone and call the police. I will come back just within few minutes. It may look like a small cut to
Emma came back home safely, but the entire journey back to home was very quiet. Stephen did speak anything in the car and this made Emma unhappy. It was she who had send pictures of the items in Stephen's car to Agent Jones. The agent would have been alive if she had not done that. In addition to this, She felt that she had played with Stephen and betrayed him. The guilt made her feel uneasy and she wanted to stay away from Stephen.The one thing that surprised Emma was Stephen mentioning Julia's boyfriend. Though Julia was her best friend, she did not know that Julia had a boyfriend. Emma was sure that no one knew about her boyfriend. She decided to ask Andre about Julia. Andre was Julia's boyfriend before they broke up and he started hanging out with Cathy.It was sunset by the time Emma reached her house. Stephen stopped
Mrs Smith prepared beef for dinner. Emma and Nancy sat down and ate their food quietly. Their parents, on the other hand, kept talking about Cathy. They had gone to meet Cathy's parents while Emma was away. Nancy too had gone along with them. They were planning to keep Cathy's funeral in their hometown where most of their relatives resided. They were in distraught regarding Cathy's death. She was their only child and they had loved her very much. Emma's parents were shocked to know that the police hadn't told them much about Cathy's death." They only received a call from police about Cathy. She was completely burned to Ashes. It must have been such a blow for them," said Mr Smith."I wonder why they were not letting David meet the eyewitness. After all, how can parents just look at ashes and believe that their daughter died?" said Mrs
The next morning, Emma got up early and helped her mother in making breakfast. Nancy, on the other hand, woke up late and tried to finish her morning routine, as fast as she could. To Emma's shock, she looked pale and weak. After breakfast, they walked silently and slowly to the bus stop. There was snowfall again in the morning and both the girls shivered despite wearing very warm clothes.As they kept walking, Emma remembered the first time she met Stephen. She fell on top of him and he was as cold as ice. She also remembered how he did not eat anything on their date.'Could Stephen be a vampire? How is this possible? Aren't vampires not supposed to move around in broad daylight?'thought Emma as she walked along with her sister.To Emma's surprise, Nancy did not s
