Today is going to be a great day. Today is going to be my day because it is my birthday! My name is Elizabeth Red. I am seventeen years old and I live in a poverty-stricken neighborhood. I live with my ignorant mother, Mary, in a lousy and run downed apartment that my grandma offered us. Mom wasn't always ignorant. In fact she was a loving and caring mother, until a great tragedy came upon us. The ...view middle of the document...

"And take the short cut. Don't stray or go anywhere other than your Aggie's house, nor have conversations with random people," she added.I knew exactly what she meant. She's warning me after the incident she heard last week about a girl who disappeared in town. I, for one, wasn't afraid. I knew where to go and what to do. As I walked out the door, I realized I didn't have my favorite red sweater on. I hurriedly rush to my bedroom and snatch it from my bed and made my way out the door with grandma's box. I didn't bother saying goodbye to my mom. She probably thought I left already.As I made my way through the back roads to Aggie's house, I realized that the short cut I was in was so far deep into the woods. Everywhere I looked was covered in trees and bushes. Why would mom want me to take the short cut? It's looks frightening even in daylight. I grew exhausted of walking and carrying the heavy box. The weather wasn't on my side either. The sun's heat was pounding on my back and side. Sweat was seeping through my sweater and that's when I decided to take a break and rest. I didn't even bother to bring anything to snack or drink on. I felt stupid. My excitement overcame me. I should have known that even the short cut wasn't fast enough to get to Aggie's house. It's like almost an hour of walking to get there and less than that if we had a car. Unfortunately, we don't have a car.I took a rest on the dirt trail. I sat down and put the box beside me. I took my sweater off and decided to just wrap it around my hips. It was too hot to wear it. Sitting down, I wondered what was in the box and why was it so heavy. Normally, I would just bring grams medicine but today was different. I felt like the urge to open the box but I knew that wouldn't be right. Why can't mom just get a job and buy a car. That would have been a lot easier to get to grams house.I was so deep in thought that I wasn't even aware that a man was hovering over me. From my view he looked liked an angel with bright hazel eyes, built body, tall figure, dark gorgeous hair and a handsome sculpted face. He reminded me of a Calvin Klein super model. I was mesmerized with his stunning beauty that I didn't even notice that he was guiding me up. As I stood, I immediately wiped the debris that clung to my rear. "Hi," he said smiling. Even his voice is mesmerizing not to mention his perfect rows of white teeth. I stood for a moment and gaped at him like an idiot. I couldn't bring myself to say anything. Looking at him felt like I was in a trance. I decided to just nod. "Hi," he said repeating himself as if I didn't hear him the first time. I finally brought myself out of the trance and stared on my feet feeling embarrassed. I turned around remembering what my mom said about talking to strangers, especially when I'm alone in the woods. I picked up the box and started walking away as if the whole thing never happened. Though that didn't stop him from following me. I started walking a little faster...
