Chapter 1
Max awoke to the sound of his alarm clock, which was on the windowsill right next to where he slept. The glowing digital numbers read 6:30. Max turned the alarm off, got of of bed, grabbed a change of clothes for school, and headed upstairs to shower. After he was done with the shower, Max ate breakfast, and started packing his school supplies. By the time he was done with that, his dad took him to his first day of school.
After his dad had pulled away, he noticed another boy get out of a white minivan. The boy looked around, and noticed Max. He ran up to Max, and greeted him. “Hey Josh!” Max said. “Hey Max!” Josh said. Max opened the door to the school, and allowed Josh to enter. After a few others walk in, he closed the door, and proceeded to the Commons, which was just inside. He found Josh sitting on a chair, waiting for Max. Max walked over to him, and asked “So, how was your summer?” “Boring” Josh replied. “Summer is too long...” he groaned. “And what about you Max? Anything eventful?” “The only eventful thing that happened to my was my sister getting married and moving out of the house.” Max said. “Your sister got married? But I’m the one..” “Josh, how many times do I have to tell you that she is ten years older than us,” Josh waved his hand impatiently “But she..” “Enough” Max said, “She is way too old for you” The five minute warning bell rang, signaling that their first class would start soon. “See you later” Josh said.
Before Max knew it, it was lunch time. After Max had gotten his lunch, he went over to where Josh was sitting, and sat down. “How’s your day been?” Max asked him. “Boring.” he mumbled. “I’ve personally been having a good time, getting to know all my classmates and what not.” Max said. “Good for you” Josh said. “Hey... who’s that?” Max gestured to a girl who was sitting by herself. “I think her name is Serenity” Josh said. “And how would you know that?” Max asked. Josh’s cheeks flushed slightly. “She was sitting right next to me last period.” he muttered. Max raised an eyebrow. “It’s true!” Josh said. “Anyway, can we hang after school today? I have "something I want to show you back home” “Of course!” Max replied.
When Max arrived at Josh’s house, Josh’s face was grim. Shocked, he asked “What’s wrong?” Josh pulled out a newspaper and read “Yesterday, the Walmart in Orem exploded, killing about ten people, and injuring 25 more. Police that have...
