On the first day of winter break, Elly Fischer, Kayla Mueller (KK), Kayla Whitworth, and I, all found ourselves sitting in Kayla’s bedroom patiently waiting for the evening’s plans to arise. Hours passed and there seemed to be no sign of any mid-week shindig. We were in desperate need of something to occupy our time. Someone throws out the suggestion of going on a “cruise” and looking at Christmas lights. Being the young, dumb individuals that we are, we come to a unanimous decision to embark. Elly, being the kind-hearted gal that she is, decides to take one for the team and sit out of the planned festivities and be our chauffeur for the night. The first stop on the journey is Taco Bell. As we pull out of the parking lot, with bags full of …show more content…
We drive back around to the house and I offer to get the cup, because it’s my family’s house, they’d feel a lot more comfortable with me coming up to their porch at 1 A.M. than they would a stranger. Right as I am about to hop out and get it, they see the shadow of my Uncle Jesse standing at the front door. They get spooked and speed away. As I reassure them that it is not a big deal, we come around for a second shot at snagging the cup. Everyone gets jittery and Elly refuses to stop. This time I tell them that if they are so scared they should just pull along the side of the house and that I will handle everything. Hoping the third time will be the charm, we round the corner for one last try. This time, Uncle Jesse is out on the porch watching us. Elly sees him and decides to forget the cup all together and just high tail it out of the neighborhood. As we make our way back into Smithton, we pass another copper.

Someone makes a comment about trying to lose them. Could you imagine four high school girls leading a Smithton cop on a wild goose chase at 1:30 A.M. on a frigid Thursday night?

Everyone's a little on edge, and doesn’t really know what to say or do. We part ways as KK and Elly go to sleep in one room, and Kayla and I in the other. It is 2AM, and sleep is the last thing on my mind. All I can think about is what my parents are going to do. Part of me wants to just laugh it off and not think about it, but the other part wants me to go ahead and start digging my own grave now. My mind is racing back and forth, and I eventually just fall asleep, only to be awakened by Kayla 20 minutes later, still freaking out about what just happened. I tell her that it will all be fine and I roll over and go back to sleep. Every 15 minutes after that, Kayla would again wake me up and express her feelings about the situation.
