Take a peek into the book:
Sunday, May 12: Rayen enters into the penthouse, and the decorations are beautiful. She is happy that her fifteenth birthday has finally arrived. “Today is going to be awesome!” she says. She looks up at the banner. Happy Birthday, Rayen. “I can't wait until later. This will be my greatest birthday. Mom promised!” she thinks. She looks down at the perfectly wrapped gift box in her hands. She cannot help but smile. “Mom's going to love her Mother’s Day gift!” She looks over at the dining room table displayed with elegantly wrapped boxes. As she enters into the kitchen, she views her three-tier birthday cake decorated in red, pink and baby blue: her favorite colors. She is overwhelmed with excitement. She picks up the cordless phone on the kitchen wall. “Aunt Margie, what time are you and Angie coming to my party? It’s three now,” Rayen explains into the phone.
“Well, doesn't the party start at five?”
“Then we will be there shortly,” Margaret says. “Don't worry.”
“May I speak with Angie, please?”
“Sure, hold on, sweetie.”
“Hello,” Angie says.
“Hi, Angie. I am super psyched. You know Connor Worthy will be here. And, I'm so nervous, I want to pass out!” Rayen blushes. Angie begins to laugh.
“Rayen, you are so silly. What are you wearing?”
“You will see. Bye!” Rayen hangs up the phone and runs to her room.
“Mom! Are you here?” She runs to the bathroom and showers. When she is finished, she walks up the hall to her room to get dressed. She lifts her dress in the air and looks it over. She loves it. It is pink satin that flares at the knee. “Perfect! Here we go.” She steps into the dress and zips it up. She takes at peek at herself in the mirror. “Mom!” She wonders why her mom hasn’t come to see her get dressed. She walks into the hall. “Why it is so quiet? Mom! Dad! Where are you guys?” Rayen runs up the stairs and heads to her parents room. “Mom! Dad! Are you guys here? My party starts in an hour.” When she turns the corner, she spots the blue shoe her mother was wearing this morning. She looks over to see her mom lying in the middle of the floor. Her long black hair is covering her face. Her heart starts to beat quickly. “Mom!” She races to her and uncovers her face. She gently pulls her hair back. “Mom?” she whispers. She spots a pool of thick red blood around her head. “Mommy! Mommy!” She lies her head down on her mom's back and begins to sob uncontrollably.
“Help me! Somebody, help me please!”
The door creeks open. “Rayen! Rayen! Where are you dear?”
