Part One

Chapter One

Good! The house was empty. While Lisa waited outside in the cold to be sure, she relaxed for a moment and let herself think about the past.

At this time a few weeks ago, she had been sitting quietly in her fifth-grade social studies class. There had been no reason to believe. That her life would change. Now it was the middle of December. The whole world had changed, and life seemed terrible.

What will hapen to me? she wondered. Then she swung her leg with all her might. Her boot crashed through the wooden frame and glass of the front door.

The shattering sound rang in her ears as she reached through the broken pane for the Latch. Her movements were quick. She was becoming a good thief.

her eyes struggled to adjust to the strange dimness of the room. Lucky I didn't cut myself this time, she thought, inspecting her hand. But the hand was trembling, and that made her angry.

There is nothing to be afraid of here! They're dead, and gone for good. Lisa promised herself never to be afaid again, and to prove it, she screamed at the top of her voice, "I'm here, nobody. I'm here!"

Not even an echo replied.
