Chapter 1: The News

Disclaimer: This is for the whole story. I do not own any characters. Only the plot. This is a work of my messed up imagination. Unless otherwise indicated. Anything you recognize is not mine, but it might be a coincidence. Maybe I read it and remembered it in my subconscious? We'll see what happens…

My first fanfiction! At first, I couldn't figure out how to publish my story, so I had to google it. I'm a fail. DX BTW this is pretty much going to be in Cammie's POV

"Cammie, wake up," said my twin brother Grant.

"5 more minutes," I mumbled.

"But mom wants to tell us something and she said it was really important that she tell us as soon as possible."

"She'll still be there in 5 minutes," I reasoned.

"Come on, Cammie!"

"Fine," I said, giving in. As I got ready (Grant already got out of my room, obviously), I was wishing I got up earlier because I was starving. I went to the kitchen to find something to eat and I took a bite out of an apple I found.

"Oh, there you are, Cammie." My mother said. "I wanted to talk to you and Grant." Then, as though on cue, Grant came into the kitchen.

"So what did you want to tell us?" I asked, wanting to get it over with.

"Well, we're moving to Roseville, Virginia next week (It's the middle of August)." She said in a bit of a rush.

"WHAT!" Both Grant and I said in unison. Total twin ESP moment. Heh.

"Well, I just said that we are mov-"

"We heard you, but why?" I asked, cutting her off.

"I got a better job offer in Roseville, and I heard that the school there has a better curriculum than here."

"But I don't want to go! All my friends are here!"

"Well, the thing is, honey, I spoke with Macey's mother, and she agreed that Macey could come as well." In case you didn't know, Macey is my best friend, which is totally unfair since my mom knows that and is just using that so I would come. Darn her. My mom, not Macey.

"Fine," I said stubbornly.

"What about you, Grant? Are you okay with this?" I think she was starting to get worried because Grant was just standing there staring at her. Yet he still managed to give her a slight nod.

"Well, then I suggest you start packing now, since we're moving next week. You might want to tell your friends about it soon, after all, I think they might want to say good bye to you two before we leave."

Grant and I were just standing there staring at each other, until I broke the silence by saying, "Well, I guess I might as well go say good bye." As I was about to leave, my cell phone began to ring.

"Can you believe it?" Macey, of course. Only she would be enthusiastic at a time like this.

"How are you excited? We're leaving everything behind!"

"Well, for one, I'm staying at your place the entire year, which means I don't have to live with my parents (Did I mention Macey doesn't get along with her parents? Hmmm, maybe that's the reason her parents let her go with me). Plus, I hear there are some hot guys in Roseville, I mean, seriously, all the hot guys are taken, or aren't interested."

"Well, I guess that's too bad for me, because guys aren't interested in someone like me, 'cause, face it, I'm just a plain-Jane. Average weight, average height, average looks, average everything." This was all true, no matter what anyone said. I've seen myself, and it may not be pretty, but it isn't ugly either. Somewhere in between.

"Whatever. Believe what you will, but you and I both know the truth." What truth? That is the truth!

"Fine. Do you want to go drive around saying good bye to everything and everyone? Plus, can you tell everyone, because I don't want to be the one to break the news." I said, effectively changing the subject.

"Okay. I'll be at your house in about 15 minutes."

I decided to wear something casual, but something Macey would approve of. I wore a pair of brown shorts and a baby blue tank top, with a pair of black converse. I decided to go with the natural look, so no makeup. It's just not my thing. Some of you may say I'm just being lazy, which may or may not be true.

When she came, I went to open the door and she came in. We were about to leave, when Grant came and said, "Where are you two off to?"

"Just saying bye to everyone."

"Fine, but be careful. Don't get kidnapped or anything. Actually, you know what? I think I'll come with you. Just to be safe. I mean, I can't have my little sister wandering around defenseless, right?"

"Grant. I am not defenseless, and I can run pretty damn fast. Besides, I'm only younger by 6 minutes! Also, I'll have Macey with me."

"Fine, but if there's any trouble, you'll call me right away, alright?" Oh puh-lease, Grant. I'm not going to get kidnapped by some weirdo in a white van.

"Don't worry! I'll be fine." With that, we walked to Macey's car and began driving around, because I was not in the mood for driving. First, we went to the ice-cream shop where we first met.

We both got chocolate ice-cream just like before. Then we went to the park and began to swing just like old times. We continued throughout the town, looking at the creek, and going to the fair for the last time.

I sighed remembering all my memories here. My broken arm when I fell of the tree, when I first learned how to ride a bike. Too bad I'm moving in a week. Anyway, Macey and I went back to my house and we said good bye.

I went to bed in my most comfortable pajamas, dreading the day we were going to move.

I swear it gets better! I know what you're thinking. How can this mess possibly get any worse? It can't! It can only improve, so keep reading, and it wouldn't hurt to leave a nice little review for me :] The mystery part comes in around chapter 7.
