It was raining that night in San Francisco. Laura Calvin could not sleep because she was having a lot on her mind as she was having an algebra test the next day and on top of that she also had an assignment to complete by the end of the week and she was also having trouble with her ex boyfriend Brandon MacDonald. She shifted under her blankets and hugged the sheets tighter to add extra warmth. She lied awake for a few moments before her mind took her into the darkness of sleep.

The next Day…12 March 2020

Laura awoke with an exhausted moan at the sound of her alarm clock beeping from the lampstand bedside her bed. Her hand lazily reached for the snooze button but the darn thing fell onto the floor with a loud thud.

”Perfect, ” she muttered as she swung her legs over the edge of the bed. She slipped her feet into her flippers. She stood and stretched a little bit. Her room was nothing spiffy but it was her room. On one end there was a wardrobe that contained all of her clothing, there was also a dressing table where things like her makeup, brushes et cetera, et cetera resided. There was also a door right next to the dressing table that led into her small bathrobe.

Laura was now energized after her stretching. She stripped out of her blue silky night dress and made her way to the shower. Her body welcomed the warm water as it washed down her body.

She walked down a small flight of stairs and walked into the kitchen where she expected to find her aunt Caroline Calvin making breakfast but instead when she went in she found aunt Carol sobbing, tears were streaming down her cheeks and she was holding the landline to her ear.

”Aunt Carol? ” Laura asked. She was worried for her aunt because there were a lot of things that aunt Carol had gone through but she rarely cried the way she did today. The only other time she cried like that was when Lauras father-aunt Carols twin brother, Martin Calvin, Lauras mother, Loretta, and Lauras little brother, Tyler Calvin, were pronounced dead in a plane crash off the coast of the Caribbean ten years ago.

Aunt Carol placed the landline on the wall before she looked back at her. Only that her eyes weren filled with sadness, they seemed to be over filled with happiness and the tears were tears of joy.

”Sweetie…, ” aunt Carol sniffed, ”…they found him ”

Laura looked at her with a puzzled expression. She asked, ”Found who? ”

”Your brother, ” her aunt sobbed.

Emotions started swirling around in her head. Sorrow especially. Laura had been believing that they were alive the first two years that followed up the incident but as time passed she had given up on that hope and had accepted the death of her parents and brother but now her aunt receives a call and she tells her that her broth
