My mom always told me not to snoop.
But it's not my fault.
She just left it lying around like she wanted someone to read it.
The she I'm talking about is Claudia Fisher.
She is always writing in a journal. And I found it.
Claudia has always kept to herself. But now that I read it, I can see why.
No way I am ever going near that girl again.
I am not mean, but she is scary. Everyone always wants to know her secrets. She is very quiet, and she hides behind her long, dark hair, always hugging the journal that right now feels like is a thousand pounds in my backpack, so she's easy to spread rumors about.
They say she's a witch, or some kind of vampire. But they are off by a million miles.
Now that have read Claudia's journal, I have this feeling in my stomach. I don't know whether it's to turn away from the dark blue notebook with ink carved into the pages revealing all her secrets that are now scattered in my brain.
Or to keep reading it.
I want to find out more about the mysterious Claudia Fisher. But now I know the truth, I am afraid of what I learn about her, and how far I go.
What if she can't find her journal, and she knows I stole it?
What if she comes after me?
What if she kills me?
Scary possibilities run across my brain. Who knows what will happen?
But for now, I know what I have to do.
I have to keep it safe, and as far away from her as I can.
And I have to learn as much as I can about the truth about Claudia Fisher.
