Sneak Preview of Future Book (maybe)

      I walked down the empty halls.  I had an eerie feeling.  Something about walking around alone, while the lights seem to get dimmer and dimmer, always gives me the creeps.  It's like what you would see in a horror film.
     "Allie!" I jumped a mile.  I had thought the school was empty.
     "Allie, wait up!" I didn't know who was calling me.  So, I did the sensible thing.  I ran.  I sprinted.  All the way to Mr. Wilkonsin's classroom.  Mr. Wilkonsin's biology class had always made me feel at home.   I understood what he was talking about.  It wasn't like learning a foriegn language.  (Which is WAY harder than what you might think.)  I squatted in the far corner, and tried to remain quiet.  Then, I replayed the voice over and over in my mind.  It started to seem vaguely familiar.
    "Allie? Where are you?"  I didn't speak.
    "Allie! It's me, Kim."  Bits of my mind finally started to find their places.  I knew that name.
    "Remember me?  From Miss Jonie's third grade?  We were best friends."
    I crept out of my hiding place.  Kim was my best friend.  She had moved away during the summer and had left me crying for weeks.
     "Kim?" I stammered.
     "Allie!" She cried.  "Why did you run?"
     "I...I didn't know it was you.  What are you doing here?" I managed.
      "Looking for you of course!"  Kim said happily.  "What are you doing here?"
      "I forgot something in my locker.  But I got it." I lied.
      "Okay, then let's get out of here.  This place is starting to give me the creeps." 

   Like? Dislike?  (Be honest.)  Corrections?  Suggestions?
