My name is Laura Fitzgerald, I’m seventeen . . . and I really, really want to be eighteen someday.
I don’t know what’s going on, exactly. It feels like the world is ending out there. I’m scared, and there’s no one else in here but me. This is Cody’s phone, not mine. I guess you know that. Whoever you are. Whoever finds this, I mean.
If Cody’s mom or dad hears this, I’m sorry about Cody, I did everything I could. I swear.
God . . .
I don’t know . . . I don’t know how long I can stay in here. I don’t have any food or water. But they’re still out there, I can hear them. Sometimes I hear someone scream out there.
Um . . .
Honestly? I’m kind of surprised I can even talk right now, usually I’d be curled up in a little ball somewhere. That’s what I really want to do. But I can’t. They’ll get me if I do.
Oh, God. God.
No. Okay. Stop. Breathe. I can do this. I can do it.
I just, I thought I should explain everything, because maybe it will help? I don’t know. I don’t know if anyone will ever find this . . . but, um . . .
This is what happened.
