"I would love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life's a bitch. You've got to go out and kick ass."

-Maya Angelou

That has been my life's motto since I was 10 years old. Until now, that is. Everything changed when my cousin, Steve, and our friends, Andrew and Matt, found that weird hole in the ground, and got superpowers. It was cool at first, but then, everything went to hell. It all happened so fast that sometimes I can only remember flashes of it all. Thank goodness for Andrew's camera, or I wouldn't have even believed it had happened at all.

I was behind the camera most of the time, watching it all unfold, like an audience in a movie theater. But now I think it's time to tell my side of the story, the one that no one knows about. It was mainly Matt's idea to erase me from all of the footage, so that I could go on with a normal life, but life, especially mine, has never been normal.

AN: I loved Chronicle, it was so original and not corny or lame. I saw this at the movies, and I'm currently trying to track down the movie script to help me along with this story. But for now, I'm using YouTube and Wikipedia as references.
