Skip it.

You bother not to read it. You exit out of the website, but you still find nothing. Boring.  You say goodbye to Lily, and head on home.

But first you make a stop at your favorite and cheapest grocery store.  You walk into the store, and it feels like home. You greet Melly, the store owner. Although, she tells you some depressing news.

”Oh yeah, our house caught on fire just recently..We’re just going to live here for now.” It breaks your heart to hear that. You feel bad for her daughter, Lian though. You and Lian never talk, but it’s still really sad. You hand her 20 bucks and buy some cereal, and leave.

 

You’re home, watching TV. You’e flipping through channels, until a striking story from CBA catches your eye.

A family’s house burned down, but kind strangers offered to help it! You wonder if you can help Melly with her house. You don’t have the money, but she needs it more than you do. Maybe you could start a fundraiser..

Maybe.

But you head off to dream land, too tired to say anything.

 

 

 

You’re at the library, looking up more stuff about Marie. So far, you find nothing. You stumble across a forum your favorite game, Goosey. Goosey sounds really stupid to you first, but it’s actually very fun. Do you sign up?

 

Yes

No

Read it.

You scroll down, it’s really boring. All he says is how much he misses her, the memories he spent.

I never got to spend much time with her. But I loved her. I remember walking by a shelter for the homeless, and she went inside. She saw the people who had nothing. She said to me ”I want to help them. Right now” She reached into her pocket, she only had 5 dollars. She donated it anyway. Even as a little girl, she wanted to help people. She still did even now. I’m thinking, who would kidnap her? She helped everyone, even a soul who hated her. I can’t think what she did wrong. She’s gone now… please, whoever kidnapped her.. Please return her !

It sounds so emotionless. So fake. Like he’s doing it as a stunt. It doesn’t even tell you when she was kidnapped, or when she was kidnapped.. You only know her birthday.  That’s it.  You yawn, not bothering to read the rest of it. You lay back in Lily’s computer chair. If you did find this girl, maybe you buy a home for your parents and your 12 other siblings.

Maybe.

Wow, there’s another page. Do you read it?

Yes

No

Go to her house anyway

Onward to her house!

You arrive at Lily’s house, which really looks better than your’s.

Really.

It’s nice and huge, it’s a nice kitchen and yeah. You knock on the door, trying to pry your eyes off the window. Lily comes by and opens the door. She’s happy you came. She takes your hand and leads you to her room. There’s a laptop in there. You lay down on her bed, exhausted from everything.

”Ugh! I CAN’T find a SINGLE thing about this girl!” Lily is frustrated. She’s beating the keys with her fingers, that are sore from typing too fast. She hands you the laptop, and you don’t see anything that will help you either.

”We don’t know a single thing about this girl…” you whisper. How do they expect you to find her? All you know her birthday is 9/1/1994. You roll your head around, your neck is sore. Maybe you should go look on the father’s website.

It seems like he had posted something.

Do you read it?

Yes

No

Text back

You text back on Lily, using little words. Your phone is the flip up ones, and is very small. Your typing is really bad, but you hope she can understand it. You use as little as words possible, you mostly call people instead of texting.

To Donna from Lily

Donna: Hy

Lily: Oh, hey!

Donna: i dnt thnk i can go 2 the party 2day : (

That’s actually true, because you really can’t. You’re too busy. Your parents said no, and you’re stuck in your room doing homework.

Lily: awwww!!!! :(((

Donna: yah..& gtg ttyl

Here you are now, stuck in your room. You’re headbanging your desk. You really want to go to that party. Your parents are asleep right now.. you could come back before your dad leaves for work..Do you leave for the party?

Yes

No

Hot Dog!

You watch the steaming hot dog plop down on your tray. It smelled good. In kindergarten, you remembered it bouncing. It was disgusting. Did lunch in the district just IMPROVED? Oh well.

You get a text from your friend Lily, do you text back?

Yes

No

Cheesy Pizza

All they have left is cheese pizza. Yuck! You always wonder who even eats it. It’s disgusting. It’s cheese plastered over tomato sauce on cardboard. Well, school pizza anyway. You really missed elm. lunch. Well actually, elm. lunch sucked too. You rather starve than eat this trash! You sip on your milk, sighing. You get a text from your friend, Lily.

Donna: o

Lily: Yeaah, come over to my house. I wanna find more about this Marie girl.

Donna: K, i’ll see.

Lily: anyway, gotta go

Donna: bye!!

Your spelling is terrible. You would text better, but you barely have any letters left.

You snap your phone shut, sighing. You and Lily really never talk much anymore. Should you go to Lily’s house?

Yes

No

LIAR.

She nods. She tells you to get up, and tell the class. You nervously get up, there’s no turning around now. You stand up, trying to choke out words. You’re unable to. You scratch your head.

 

”umm..well..I can’t do this!” You quickly sit down. The teacher does the ”I thought so” face. Your classmates think you’re either stupid or have stage fright. You messed up. Maybe your teacher needs to teach you the

 

      BE HONEST RULE

 

You wait for class to be over, and head to next period. The shame hangs with you for the rest of the day.

HONEST AND PROUD

You gulp.

Your teacher nods her head, and walks away. That was close. You yawn. Some people scoff, but your teacher moves on. Whatever. You sit down, only a few dollars left in your pocket for lunch money. Will you have a hot dog or a pizza?

Pizza

Hot Dog

Middle of 13

Your name is Donna Kie. You are the middle child out of 13. No one really notices you. Half of them are either adopted or step children – your mom loves children.. You make breakfast for your siblings, your older sister scrubs your head, thanking you for doing it for her. No problem, you think. Your youngest brother Kyle..wait no that’s Ethan.. Ethan( or is it Nate?) tugs your shirt. You however don’t notice him, turning around to get a handful of spoons. Ethan grabs the milk carton, pouring pints of milk into his tiny bowl. Cheerio’s pour down to the floor, followed by a river of milk. You sigh, cleaning up the mess.

School is almost over. You stare at the clock, hoping for the bell to ring. Your mom would be complaining to you how important education is. You know it is but – it’s just so boring. You can’t wait to get out to the real world and have a family, and a decent job. You daydream…

”DONNA!” Mrs. Mikbell snaps at you. She hits the wooden pencil on your desk. You react by nearly jumping out of your seat. She glares at you. Staring right at you in the eye.

”Can you repeat what I just said?” Mrs.Mikbell spits. Mean teachers.. They always want the truth. You wish you were home.

You gulp. And nod your head up and down.

”Oh, then can you tell the class?” You say…

”Of course!”

Umm…”

”I wasn’t listening..”
