782 words - 4 pages

So it began in a small town in Maine. Emily and Jenny were in ninth grade and Friday the 13th was coming up.
“Jenny! We should throw a party on Friday the 13th! My parents are still on their cruise!” Emily said excitedly.
“That sounds awesome! I’ll come up of a list of people and what we need to get!” Jenny said.
“Hmmmm,”Jenny thought to herself.
