Mystery

Prologue

The storm was raging all throughout the neighborhood. The trees were dangerously swaying close to people's houses, threatening to topple over and crash into them. Lightning crashed dangerously close to the ground, nearing a lonely looking house at the corner. It's lights were off, the inhabitants of the house sleeping soundly, unaware of the dangers of the storm. Until suddenly, lightning struck the house, causing it to catch on fire. A neighbor had seen the light from outside her window and went to peer through it. She gasped, as she watched the flames engulf the house. Then she came to her senses and then used her cell phone to call the fire department.

But then she thought, "Oh my goodness, where is the family?"

She watched through her window and then she spotted the fire truck coming down the street. She quickly went downstairs and put on her raincoat and brought an umbrella. She watched as the firefighters broke the door down and went inside to bring out anyone in the house. As the other firefighters were using the firehose to put out the fire, two firefighters came out and brought out the only two people that were in the house, a man and woman. The neighbor watched as two ambulances came and unloaded the gurnies to put the two people onto them and then they drove off towards the hospital. The neighbor watched as the fire was being dowsed, wondering if the two of them will be alright.

Then she suddenly realized something else, "Where is the young girl that lived there too?"
