Scholastic Writers' Award 2013Group CThe final line of your story must be: "And, to this day, I still don't know why she did it."by Lee Tse LynWho am I? I'm Kestrel Night. I'm in jail now for reasons I have yet to comprehend. I'm sentenced for murder. It has been months since I entered jail. They say I killed my brother. Nobody came to visit me as the months passed. Not even my parents. They believe I killed him. I believe I'm innocent. Do you?What they don't know is that I was at home, finishing my Biology report which was due the following day. I was listening to songs through my headphones; therefore I didn't hear the loud shot coming from the corner of my street. What they also don't know is that her car which wasn't supposed to be working was parked a few houses away from the crime scene and the two silhouette figures that ran across the road entered the car as the police came.I still remember everything perfectly. It was last December when it happened.It was getting dark when I entered The Web. This was where most of my schoolmates came to hang out. I ordered a latte and sat at the furthest corner, away from everyone else. I began pulling my homework out from my bag when I heard,"Hey, sis!" shouted Kristoff when he spotted me. He was with Cameryn, his girlfriend. Cameryn happened to study in my school too. Kristoff graduated out of high school two years ago."Nice meeting you here," I said before taking a sip of my latte."Can we sit with you? It's pretty crowded here," asked Cameryn."Yeah, you can sit here.""Thanks, Kestrel. You're the best."They spoke quietly, not wanting to disturb me while I was doing my homework. That was what I love most about Kristoff; he knew exactly when I needed to concentrate and when I needed to relax. After half an hour or so, I finished my homework. The only thing which was not complete was my Biology report and it was due the following day! How could I forget about that report? I left it at home. I cursed myself for not bringing it along with me."I need to go home now. I've got a Biology report to finish. See you at home," I said as I packed my things."Want me to drive you back?""If you're free, but it looks like Cameryn wants to spend some quality time with you," I smirked.Cameryn's cheeks rose bright pink. "I'm okay with anything, Kestrel. Kristoff can send you home, we're going to watch a movie later tonight, want to come?""I'll pass but thanks."I pushed the entrance door when someone said, "Ouch!""I am SO sorry!" I said. It was Daniel Price. He was with Shane Freeman. Shane looked at me, his tone mildly interested, "Hey, Kestrel. Join us for coffee, my treat.""Thanks, Shane but no thanks. I'm just heading off with my brother.""Well, that's just too bad. How about tomorrow? We can meet here.""Sure. I think I can spare you some time." I smiled.I looked over at Daniel. He was looking at Cameryn and Kristoff. I noticed that there was pain in his eyes. Was he jealous of Kristoff? Daniel tried to strike up a...
