I was happy that school was over for the year, and summer was beginning, but I was sad that my family and I were moving away. My father was offered a job up in Maine to continue his research on plant life. It meant I would be spending my summer stuck up in the middle of nowhere surrounded by trees.

I was going to be hours away from any malls, convenient stores, and most of all my friends. I did manage to make a deal with my father that once we settled into the home that my best friend Carlos would be able to come up and visit for a week.

As I walked up our drive way, I saw dad standing by the moving truck waving at me. I waved at my father and rushed inside, where I was greeted by my younger brother, the twerp of the family. He was carrying his boxes of comics to the moving truck. “Hey sis, mom wants you to help her in the kitchen with packing the dishes.” Daniel said before rushing past me to get to the moving van.

Oh no! This story doesn't have a prequel. Want to fill in the blanks and write one?

    This is my first writing in over 2 years, so if it is rough sorry. I am going to be making this my final series, and hanging up my pen after it is done. I want to make this as good as I can, but I am very busy person so sorry for any errors or any mistakes.

    No worries mate.

    Your story is really good. I think “nowhere” is one word and “Hey sis, mom…” needs a comma, but besides that – I’m good with it.

    I’d like to recommend that you write whenever you can; don’t hang the pen up. Ficly needs you.

    This is a good set-up. I hope you continue this because I’m anxious to see where this is going. You writing is good.
