Ten years ago, a gruesome event took place in the home of sixteen-year-old Scarlett Wright. Her home used to be filled with laughter and excitement, now it's clouded with nightmares and darkness, it left her all alone in the big hollow shell of the house to defend her six-year-old brother; Jacob Wright.

    She's been caution and hesitant of everything around her, fearing that she will burst into flames just like she had done so many years ago. It's only a matter of time until it happens once again and this time the ones in the dark, lurking, are prepared but so are the ones just like her.  With a series of knocks at her door in the dead of night, Scarlett is taken from the world she once knew and thrust into another she didn't know existed just below the surface. Things will dive a bit deeper when she arrives at an academy for people alike her, this is just the tip of the iceberg.

The world has a lot in store for little olé Scarlett, starting with secrets and hidden messages.

What happens when I have no parents... :O I pity her now 🌷
Sorry if I'm being rude but I'm guessing you meant, "Why am I not burning?" 
                              
                              Okay I'll stop now. Sorry.
This is one of the best openings I have ever read. It is chilling and heart wrenching. The imagery is really great too, even though you don't say if they are in a room (adding to the mystery) it's like I know exactly what her surroundings are from what you have included. Really great work!
The flash back dialogue is awesome! At first I was confused but the way you spaced it is perfect.

First chapter and I'm already hooked. This is so wonderfully written, I can't wait to read the rest 😊
Flashing refers to light not sound maybe try the snap or crackle of lightening striking an object.. just a thought. :)
