Emily (mle4ever) and I are doing collaborative story- Resurface. I wrote chapter 2 and took the pictures. Emily will be writing chapter 3. Enjoy!
The only thing Tegan could hear was the beating of her heart as she lay in her mother’s arms, crying while her mother tried to comfort her.
“Mom” Tegan said in a small voice and carefully looked into her mom’s eyes.
“Yes baby?” Mom answered, forgetting that she hates being called a baby but right now Tegan really doesn’t care.
“Do you think Debbie will be ok?”
“I don’t know…we can only hope.”
Silence filled the living room until the phone finally rang and mom left to answer it, while Tegan carefully turned on the TV.
Tegan immediately tried to turn off the TV, but something in the newspaper caught her eye; it was the main headline “10 YEAR OLDS REAK HAVIC!”
Tegan threw the paper across the room, her face pale and her hands shaking.
“I’m a threat!” she cried and ran into her mother’s arms.
“Oh, that’s not true.”
“It is! It says so in the newspaper and on TV!”
The rest of the day was occupied by Tegan’s crying, until finally the doorbell rang at 5 PM and her mother got up to answer it.
“Can I help you?” mom asked the person at the door.
“Yes. I’m here to arrest Tegan Kovela” the person replied; he was a police officer.
“Being double digits; newly aged 10 year olds are threats.”
