Chapter 2

Angel and Amity rushed to the door when they heard the doorbell ring a few times.

"Hello?" Amity said when she opened the door. It was detective Joyner. She had a suitcase and a pet carrier. There was a man behind her with a duffle bag and another carrier. Amity welcomed them in and they sat in the living room.

"Angel, we found your cats and their things so they could come too. We didn't want them to have to stay in that house. Here are your things. We have a week's worth of clothes and will stop by next week to bring you some more. You won't be aloud in your house until they've finished cleaning the house. We're not sure how long it will take but as soon as their done we'll take you so you can get the rest of your things." She explained. Angel nodded. She reached over and let out her hats. The first one that came out was Oki. She was a white cat with black tipped ears and black paws. The second was Pali. She was a calico with orange and brown mixed in to her black, white, and red coat. Pali hopped on the arm of angel's chair and Oki hopped on her lap. "There really is nothing else we can tell you about the case. We don't have any leads yet, but don't worry; we'll catch the people who did this."

"That won't bring back my family. Will it?" Angel asked, petting Oki.

"No. But it will serve justice."

"Justice can't undo anything. All justice does is punish someone. But does that someone learn not to do something, or do they learn to cover their tracks better?" The detective didn't say anything. "That's what I thought." Angel got up. Oki jumped out of her arms. "Oki was always Molly's cat. Pali never really cared for people. I don't think I do either. They're just cruel." With that she walked to her temporary room.

"She's taken this pretty hard; don't hold it against her. She really is a nice person." Amity told the detective. Amity showed them out and then went to Angel's room. She was lying on her bed, face buried in her pillow. Oki was sitting beside her and Pali was sleeping on the other pillow.

"You want to talk?" Amity asked. Angel didn't say anything. "I know it's hard Angel. Your whole family's gone. They won't come back. Nothing can make them come back. But would they want you to spend your life moping around doing nothing? Or would they want you to move on? Molly always said that she couldn't stand to see her friends sad. You're her family that would make her feel even worse to know you were sad."

"They can't feel. They're dead." At that moment Amity's mom walked in.

"Girls, I have some good news for you. The school board has re- done the border for the schools. You're going to North West Alpine High School." She said excitedly.

"I have to go to a new school?" Angel asked.

"They re-did the boundary so you and Amity are going to her old
school." Amity's mother said.

"You know the one I went to before I moved. Yes! I can't wait to see
everyone again! It's been so long!" Amity squealed.

"I don't want to go to a new school." Amity stopped at hearing this.

"Do you want to go back to all those backstabbers and cheaters? Do you want to hear them talk about you behind your back? I don't. Because I'd start something with one of them. Angel, you don't belong there. There's nothing for you. It's part of your past. Remember what we agreed on? You're going to forget. I'm not letting you go back to those Bitches and Bastards you thought were your friends. If they were your friends they wouldn't have started that stupid rumor. I'm going to make you forget. If it's the last thing I do."

"Thanks Amity. I really needed that. But I can't truly move on until I know what they think of me."

"Then we'll find out."

"How?"

"Simple, we'll have a party. A Valentine's Party. We'll invite everyone from our old school and from our new, well, your new, school. We'll show them."

"I don't know how well this will end but,"

"What have we got to lose?" Amity said reassuringly. Angel smiled for the first time in since she found out the news about her parents.

"You go back on Monday." Amity's mom said and walked out.

"We'll have to go shopping! I'm going to find you the sexiest outfit!" Amity squealed. "I have an idea! We'll ask mom if we can go to the mall, we'll find our outfits and then go out for ice cream! How does that sound?"

"Okay." Angel told her friend. Amity raced to the living room to ask her mom while Angel put her thoughts in her diary. She didn't use it often, but now was an important time. She wrote about moving in with Amity, her family's murder, and her new school. She fingered the silver chain her mother gave her right before she died. It was the last thing she had of her family. It was a plain chain. There was nothing on it. Not yet.

"Angel! Hurry up! We want to get there before the mall closes!" Amity yelled from the living room. Angel smiled. The first time since the news sunk in. She put up her diary and walked into the living room.

"I'm coming!" ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* Shojogurl: Hey peoples. I'm upset. NO ONE reviewed! AND my boyfriend broke up with me. It's okay though. I found out why he broke up with me and I was angry at first, but then I found out the WHOLE story and I forgave him. So we're cool. But if he ever asks me back out I'll say yes unless I already have another boyfriend. N E Way, Here's the preview.

"That looks better on you than I thought it would." Amity told Angel when she came out. Angel smiled.

"Not as good as yours." Was Angel's compliment.

"Well, we'll have to ask one of the non-preps at school. We'll see who wins." Amity challenged.

The drive to school wasn't long and they reached the main building in a few seconds walk from the car.

"Ready?" Amity asked.

"Yeah." Angel said, a little unsure of her answer. They walked in the office and saw the secretary sitting at her desk filling some papers.

"Hi Mrs. Longer!" Amity said happily. Mrs. Longer looked up and her eyes got wide.

"A-Ami-Amit-Amity?" She questioned.

"Yup!" Amity said smiling.

"Oh God help us!" She exclaimed. Obviously Amity had made quite the impression.
