Well, well, well...Groovy did it. She typed 5014 words yesterday! Whoo-hoo!
And....Groovy typed herself into an unexpected mystery. 13 year-old Cassie is usually quite reliable, but for some reason unknown to the author of this story, she has decided to turn up missing. Her older brother Dell doesn't remember seeing her after they got off the school bus in the morning; She never showed up to ride the bus home. She didn't call either (although she has a valid out because the phone was disconnected for several hours.)
So, the question of the day is, Where's Cassie?
A. She's secretly started hanging with the proverbial wrong crowd and has been led astray into some foolish misadventure.
B. She has a zinc definciency which has caused her brain to short circuit - ie. She's off on a lark and never thought to call home because she didn't think they'd be worried.
C. Her psychotic mother (Dad's ex-wife) has had her kidnapped. Bwa-ha-ha!
D. She DID leave a note for her brother, but he stuck it in a book and never read it because HE has a zinc deficiency.
E. She witnessed some heinous crime and the feds have her stowed away somewhere "safe".
F. A friend offered to drive her home and they got into a car wreck.
So there ya...You can vote for one of those or give me a better scene. But do it quick, I've got words to type and chocolate to eat!
