It was her first night alone in the house. Lindsay was a little afraid to be by herself, but she begged to be treated like a typical teenage girl. It was time to be brave, and put on her big girl pants.
The stormy night didn’t make it any easier. With every clap of thunder and flash of lightning she dug her fingers deeper into the arm of the chair; closing her eyes pretending she was on the TV show she was trying to watch.
Lindsay woke in the chair she was afraid to move from the night before. The sun was shining through the window.
