“Welcome to Roaring Heights” the sign said as we drove into the city limits. I was so thankful I was finally here. I’d come to this town with the hopes of starting over.
“Miss, what address did you tell me again?”, asked the cab driver.
“51 Beach Dr”
When I arrived, I paid the cab drive and looked around. It was gorgeous!
It had been a crazy few months what with graduation, packing and the emotion of my parent’s death. I was ready to settle down in my new house. The realtor had said over the phone that it was a charming little house. I didn’t care much at the time as I was more worried about the price range. However, now, I was very thankful. It was a beautiful little house sitting right on the beach!
I was born in Isla Paradiso and I loved it very much!. When I was a teen, my parents were killed in a boating accident. I had heard rumors about this ocean beast called the Kraken, but I always thought it was just that: a rumor. I’d never known anyone who had actually been attacked. So, you see why I had to get away. Too many memories.
After my parents died, a close friend of mine invited me to stay with him and his family. I was very thankful as I really didn’t want to live on the street or be put into some kind of foster care. However, no one really knew what to say to me. I can appreciate this as I didn’t know what to say to them either. It was a tough time.
So, I did my best to finish high school as quickly as I could. A few months later, I graduated, thanked my friend’s family, and left town as quickly as I could.
I can remember the day I left like it was yesterday. As I was leaving the house, I noticed the newspaper on the table. There was a huge picture on the front page with the headline “Local Couple Photographed During Kraken Attack”. I was shocked! I picked up the newspaper noticing my shaky hands. I almost threw it down, but I couldn’t stop myself from reading it. It was about a local couple that was attacked the day before but had somehow survived. I guess it was good someone had, but she sure wished her parents had survived as well.
I wish to someday become an International Super Spy, but first University beckons. At times, I get a little scared, but I know my mom and dad would want me to be Brave as I work towards these Ambitious goals. I would love to have a Family some day, but I want to wait awhile since I want to go to college, find a job towards my goal, and find a husband. It shouldn’t be too hard to find a cute guy since I love to Flirt and I’m quite Perceptive.
So, won’t you join me on my journey to see if my dreams come true? If so, please visit my next chapter: 1.1 – Settling In . I hope you enjoy!
