Other people's house rules are normal. Do your chores, finish your homework, no electronics after 8:30pm. Ours are different. We don't know why, and we don't know what happens if we leave. We just know we're not supposed to. It gets lonely, all of this time indoors. Trapped inside our own coffin, with no way out. I don't know what's outside. All I know is that we need to escape. Mother and father don't talk about it. I think it's the reason Orson went missing. He saw what was outside, and whatever it was, snatched him up and took him away. I need to see what's out there if not for my sake then for Orson's. There must be some reason that he never came back, something happened to him. He couldn't have just "gone missing" like the authorities said. I'm going outside. Curiosity killed the cat. It's a good thing I'm not a cat.
