Sample text:

There’s a knock on the door. I open my eyes and the light is low. In my mind I plead, GO AWAY! Please go away! There is silence and I breathe a sigh of relief, perhaps I was dreaming. The knocking returns, only louder and longer. Surely they haven’t come so early! The sun is just starting to rise. I hear my parents quickly shuffling to the front door in their slippers. Mumbled conversation becomes more intense. Then the door closes. I breathe again. It must have been a neighbor...maybe complaining about our cat. Even as I think this, I know it is foolish. I know what the knock is about. Today is my 12th birthday. It is also my twin brother’s birthday, but this is a birthday we have been dreading. There are footsteps heading down the hallway. I freeze, paralyzed with fear. Mumbled whispering voices play around on the edge of my hearing. And then I clearly hear my brother’s name. They pass by my room and stop at the next bedroom. I will myself to get out of bed. To go to his aid. Then I hear my mother crying. My father is using his brave voice, he is telling Logan that it’s all going to be okay. Logan doesn’t speak. The footsteps head back towards the door. They stop outside my room. The door slides open and my light is turned on. My eyes won’t open, they are glued shut. And then I hear my twin’s voice, “Zoe, I’m going now. I just want you to know that I’ll love you forever.” Logan carefully opened my hand and placed a round metal object, then he gently closed my fingers and gently kissed me on the forehead. He thinks I’m asleep and turns and walks to the doorway. The only sound is Dad sighing and Mom choking on her tears. The light goes off. The front door opens and the footsteps move outside. He’s gone!
