Hey guys! I started writing a book called In Ashes. It is about a 16 year old girl named Emily who was in a fire the night before her birthday. Every week I’ll post a new Chapter of my book.
“Happy birthday dear Emily, happy birthday to you,” sang Emily Blower’s best friend Samantha, on my birthday. Samantha and I were having a sleepover at my house which is October 2nd. This year I am turning 15.

“Emily! Where is Emily?”
When I Am Awake
Wha, what happened?” I asked a doctor. “Where am I?” I was wondering why there was a nurse that looked like she worked at a hospital staring at me like I was a ballerina dragon. “Sweetie, remember? You were in a fire.”Suddenly, I remembered. It had been the night before my birthday. I was cooking a cake for my friends for tomorrow at school. And then, it happened.
“Do you know who did it? I asked the nurse that thought I was a dragon. “Not yet, sorry.” she replied. “Were mom or dad hurt?” I questioned. She opened her mouth to reply but a crowd of people rushed in and forced her to stop talking. Wait, was that a reporter! ? ! The people all started talking at once but one voice stood out. My mom’s. “Where’s my child?” she asked with that sweet voice of hers. “Where is Emily?”
“MOM!” I screamed. “My sweet baby! Are you okay? Do you want me to get you water?” she asked me. I felt a flash of relief that she was okay but what about dad?
