Chapter 1

Sophie had read the letter so many times she could recite every single word by heart. She sighed as she folded it nicely and placed it in the bottom drawer of the 3 tiered dresser in her new room of muted sandy walls. The string of pearls sat in its regal place hung around the neck of the wooden frame of her new dresser, they shook as Sophie pushed the drawer deep into its shelf.

She pressed her face into an empty space while her arms flailing as if separating themselves from her body. She danced until the ceiling lights appeared like stars from afar.

The next morning Sophie woke up with a throbbing head and a grumbling stomach and she was coughing incessantly when a soft knock on the door brought her to her feet.
