One day there was a girl, this girl’s name was Emily. Emily was your ordinary 17 year old girl, little did everyone know she was fending for herself, her parents had died from lung cancer. At 16 she lost the house she grew up in from a fire, she was forced to live in the woods. She was about to turn 18. She had very little money, that she uses to buy thread and gardening tools. She made a little cottage for herself, and a garden that grew food for her. She fights for herself, educates herself, sew clothes by herself. and she even learned to sing by herself. Everyone loved her voice when she sang. They said it was like an angel’s voice. Then one day she got an idea, she was going to sing for money! A couple days passed and she got $150, just from singing!! She decided to go buy some clothes instead of making crappy clothes. While she was at the store she bought a pretty white dress, a red dress, some shorts, pants, shirts, and a blue dress. She then went to a restaurant and bought a hamburger, fries, and a drink. After that, She saved the rest of the money. She went back to her wood cottage, ate the food she bought, and went to bed. The next day she went back to the city and went to the library, and got “The Fault In Our Stars”. She went back to her cottage in the woods, sat on the ground, and read the book.The next day, she went back to the library, returned her other book, and got “Into The Water”. She went to get lunch at Sonic, she got a Corn Dog and a Sprite. She then went back to her cottage to eat her food, and read her book. That night she heard a knock on her door. When she opened it, she saw a man standing there. He was handing her a letter, saying “I believe this is for you..We found it in the burned down house.. Well anyway!! I’ve got to go! Hope to see you soon!!” She then closed the door, sat on her bed, and opened the letter. It said “Dear Emily, I hope you find this soon. Your father and I have been diagnosed with lung cancer, we are sorry we could not be here to tell you this. We have 24 hours to live. We have left $1,000,000,000 in the safe for you. The safe code is 1998, the year I was pregnant with you. I hope you find this, the safe is under the bed. Love, Mom and Dad” Emily threw the letter down and ran to the house. She then saw two men holding a safe headed towards a car. “STOP, THAT’S MINE” she yelled. They stopped, walked back towards her, one of the men was the man that gave her the letter. They handed her the safe. He then said “Well! I saw you again.. Wait! Where are my manners? My name is Lucas! What’s yours??” “Emily” she whispered while blushing. “Nice name!!” He then whispered back. She blushed. “Thanks, yours too! Well I’m gonna go…” “Ok, do you need help with that??” he asked. “No, I’m good” she replied. “Well, bye then.” he told her. “Bye.” She walked back to the cottage, and she opened the safe. There was everything inside it that her parents told her, plus more. That night when she was getting in bed, she heard a knock on her door, she got up and went to go see who it was. When she opened the door she was surprised to see who it was. It was Lucas, and he had something to ask her. “Do you want to go to the movies with me tonight?” He asked. She said yes. At the movies, they ordered popcorn, candy, and drinks. Emily paid for all of this.
