Dear Audrey,

Okay, so what's going on?? Our senior year's just started and now you're suddenly...gone? I don't understand... I mean, I don't want to sound like a jerk, but couldn't you have told me that you were going to move (or whatever it is that you're doing)?

We've been friends since PRESCHOOL, Audrey, and I'm worried about you. I'm worried because...I don't know, I think something bad may have happened to you. Like, really bad. I mean, so much stuff's been happening at once. They took away all our computers and then our TVs and then our phones, and I've been hearing rumors that they're planning on shutting down ALL the schools in the state soon. I always thought not having any school would be a really good thing, but...Not now. And if they're gonna shut down Ohio's schools, then they'll probably end up doing the same for every school in the whole entire COUNTRY! Bad things are gonna start happening soon, I just know it...

I really hope you're okay, Aud. If you get this, please try and write back as soon as you can - I need to know you're alright.



Author's Note: Hello, readers! This story is told through a series of letters, and there will be one letter per chapter. This first letter is short, but never fear -- the letters that follow are longer than this, some of them much longer. The Peter chapters are written by myself, while the Audrey chapters are written by whatif2223. Enjoy the story!
