The summer winds pounded against the beach house as we lay on the floor. It was a summer storm, the beautiful kind. The water rushed up closer and closer to houses as people watched. It just took your breath away. After the storm was over, I would leave, and never see you again. 

The news had shocked me at first. I was mad. Why me? Why not Amelia, or Tyler? Or Allison? Just...why?  That'd be your initial reaction too if you'd been told that you had to go spend the whole summer with your strange aunt whom you've never met before in Michigan. So three weeks before school ended, they broke the news to me. \"Cassie, do you remember hearing about your aunt Sylvia ever?\" My mom asked me. Who the eff...? \"Uh no I don't think so.\"  \"Well she's your father's sister. She lives in Michigan on the beach. She was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. With all the chemotherapy and everything she's away from home a lot.\" Your point is...? \"Ok, go on...\"  \"Aunt Sylvia needs someone to watch her house. So this summer you're going to spend it in Michigan, living in her house.\" Emotions flooded through me. At first it sounded amazing, I'd have a whole house to myself. But then I realized what's the point of having a house to yourself if you didn't know anybody? Ugh. This was going to suck. \"But Mom! I was supposed to go to Florida with Annie! You can't force me to do this!\" I argue. \"Honey I'm sorry, everything's already set up. You're going to leave two days after you get out of school. You'll come back two days before school starts. I'll get your supplies and stuff.\" This was horrible. I was being forced to leave my own freaking state to go live with my aunt!

The weeks after that I moped around. I was depressed. It sounds weird, but I was. I had to start packing early, according to my strict mother whom I hated.  The night before the last day of school, I was packing and I got a call from a private caller. \"Hello...?\" Who could it be? It couldn't be Annie or Marie, I had their numbers stored. \"Is this Cassie?\" This was getting creepy. \"Uh yeah...Who's this?\" \"This is your aunt Sylvia. I'm calling to make sure that you got the tickets I mailed you.\" They were first class, so when I got them I started freaking out. I'd rode an airplane PLENTY of times before, but first class was new to me. \"Oh, uh, yeah. Thanks.\" \"Alright well just wanted to make sure. I'm excited to meet you. I'll be there when you arrive but I'll have to leave hours later. Nice talking to you, bye.\" \"Oh ok bye.\" This should be interesting.
