In the eighth grade, Allison Sharks and her family went missing from the small town of Clearhall Falls, Minnesota. A month passed but the search for the Sharks was still strong. Then it was two months, and six months, and soon it's five years later and the only one still looking for her is Ethan Willows. But the first day of senior year, in walks Allison, drawing people to her new mysterious persona like a moth to a flame. Ethan can't help but notice how different she is and is determined to figure out just exactly why she went missing.
"Cmon just tell me where you've been, it's getting ridiculous!" I groaned, sitting back in the booth chair.
"Ethan, you can't read a book about a mystery you're still solving." She looked at me before grabbing her bag off the counter and zipping up her coat.
"The thing is, it's already solved. You just need to tell someone who did it." I countered.
She laughed and pulled on her hood and gloves.
"I'll see you tomorrow." I waved aimlessly as I watched her walk out of the diner and into the night.
Now to figure out what she's really hiding.
