Just a girl who loves writing, makeup and the supernatural.
Daphne had never been one to buy into all the Valentine’s Day craze. To her it was just another day and if you were lucky, you may get some chocolates. However, this year, something piqued her interest. Everyone at school had been going on about the new viral challenge. The aptly named Cupid’s Kiss Challenge. This wasn’t just any game though, this was a paranormal one. Daphne loved reading about the supernatural and has even played a game or two with no consequences. So, upon hearing about the Cupid’s Kiss Challenge, Daphne was intrigued.
Quartz Falls is like any other New England town, except for the fact that it’s not. On the outside it looks like a beautiful and quaint town. Yet once you find yourself in its core, you will soon realize you are in for way more than beautiful places to pose for pictures and whimsical places to shop. Formed in the 1600’s, it is rich with history. Generations have come, gone, and some have stayed. Throughout the years it has been a tourist attraction. Quartz Falls is aptly named for a stunning waterfall that flows into Quartz Falls Lake. As it streams down the rocks, the water shimmers like quartz crystals in the sun and moonlight. The lake is home to lots of visitors throughout the summer and autumn seasons.
607 Hullberry St.
The fainting sounds of haunting carnival music, kids laughing and the smell of apple cider donuts followed Ava as she walked out of Ikeborrow’s Annual Spooky Festival. It was just about dusk, and Ava was determined to get to 607 Hullberry St. before it was completely dark. The streets were still filled with people, it was a Friday night, and it was mischief night. There was so much energy in the air, Ava almost felt like she could see it. The cops were already beginning to drive around, hoping to ward off any teenagers or adults from doing something stupid tonight. It didn’t matter, a million cops could be out, and it wouldn’t stop them. Mischief night was on a Friday and the weather was holding out. Mischief would be had tonight.
It was an Ordinary Day
It was around 7:00 a.m. . The air was cool, but you could feel the humidity would be moving in soon. The afternoon would be a typical hot and sticky summer day. Dina placed her earbuds in her ears and turned on the music. She loved listening to pop songs from the 90's on her morning runs. These songs were fun and nostalgic, reminding Dina of her carefree teen years.
The Red Notebook
It was a Sunday afternoon at the Whitmire household. Dad, Mom and their teenage son and daughter appeared to be doing nothing out of the ordinary. James was busy looking at wallpaper swatches for his office, deciding which new print he wanted to swap with his current design. Alexa was in their bedroom on her tablet looking at island destinations for their next family vacation. Hannah and Kyle were growing so fast, Alexa wanted take at least one or two more big family trips before they went off to college. While Alexa was planning a nice relaxing vacation, she could hear Kyle and his older sister Hannah butting heads downstairs. They each kept demanding the other leave the family room. It was typical sibling behavior; a small marathon of arguing with no clear winner in site.
The Blue Car
“Unfortunately, there is no mistake,” she said, closing the file. “There was no blue car involved in this case,” continued Audrey. Tony rolled his eyes, Audrey could tell what he was going to say and she quickly put a stop to it. “I know it’s frustrating, you had a new lead but it went nowhere. We looked at the accident reports and the surveillance footage from the hotel. Not one blue car involved in anything.” Audrey was stern she wasn’t going through this again. She had spent most of her day off rummaging through Tony’s files. Files that had been gone through a dozen times before and this time wasn’t any different, again they found nothing new.
