How i know Amanda?
Well Amanda as you all know has moved around a lot. She went to my school when i was in 7th grade. She some how go all the same classes that i was in, because of that my teachers told me that i should show her around. Well this didnt bother me very much, but my friends hated her. So i didnt tell them about her. I was cheer captin at my school and i asked her if she wanted to join the team. But Amanda declined, we went on our lives talking and hanging out somtimes after school. She came over to my house only a couple of times. I never went to her house though. She said her parents were very strict and workaholics. Everything seemed to be normal, well as noraml it can be with Amanda. Callie, Hal, and Nia she told me the same things about how i was her guide. But for some reason she never said it to someone else.
Then came the day when she took me to get a tatoo. My totom i was given is the horse which means i show leadership. Anyways she told me to meet her at my local tatoo store. I didnt ask her a question about it. I was used to this weird behavier from Amanda. When we got to the tatoo store she told me that we had to look inside, as we walked in she asked the lady at the counter where were all the tatoo’s we could choose from. The lady pointed to a wall covered in colorful desighns.
“look its a horse” Amanda said as we walked over to the wall covered in tatoo’s we could choose from
“yeaaaa.” i replied back
“You have to get it”
“And why is that” i asked puzzled
“its your totem” she said proudly
And that day i walked out of the tatoo store with a tatoo of a horse. But this tatoo was perminent. And i still have it to this day.
A couple days later Amanda left, I never saw her agian, but she left me this key and i dont know what to do with it.

First off, Amanda didn’t go by Amanda, she went by Dixie Rose. But for everyone’s sake, I’ll call her Amanda.
Amanda and I met in eighth grade. She and I had the same schedule, with some minor tweaking (I dropped honors history to be with her in regular history). We both loved music and writing. She loved to spend her time listening to music and writing stories.
We would often go to the park and write after school everyday for about an hour or two. Just Amanda and me.
Amanda and I passed alot of notes during class, like, all the time. She was also on the computer, alot, usually uploading her stories to fictionpress.net, or listening to music. I never went over to her house, but she told me that she lived near me. She and I walked to and from school, or we biked.
Amanda was my best friend, and she often hung out with me and my friends during lunch. my friends loved her. She was funny and insightful, and she was my best friend.
I didn’t know alot about her family. She told me that both of her parents worked for the government, and that was cool, since we live near an air force base. I never pressed her for answers.
Alot of times, she would send me random songs on YouTube or random stickers and Pieces of Flair on MySpace. They were often deep quotes. I kinda miss getting her flairs and stickers.
I’ve been getting some random messages from some anonymous person on my phone. they won’t tell me who they are, but they’re getting more and more cryptic. The last one said, “He hated and loved it, just as he hated and loved himself.” - Gandalf, LotR:FotR. That was an hour ago.
Oh, I must add, that LotR:FotR= Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring. Amanda loved reading Lord of the Rings. She said it was her favorite book, besides the Ink series and Harry Potter.
i don’t know what any of this means. I’m confused and I just wanna know the truth.

I met Amanda at a bookshop. She was taking out a novel I’d read, and we got into a conversation. Suddenly, we were friends.
Amanda came over to my house from time to time, bringing CDs of the Beatles, and several artists I’d never heard of, but turns out I like them. More often, we’d go out in the dead of night, just walking through the streets. I was surprised that she knew her way around Chicago so well, having been there for such a short time.
When I found out she was in my art class, I was really happy to be able to talk with her about what we were creating. She always made such abstract designs…when I asked her about them, she mentioned something about keys and destiny and “this is their path”. Amanda never told me who “they” were.
Now that I think about it, do you think it could be the path for the guides?

How do I know Amanda?
Well, I didn’t really know her that well when I first met her. We had a couple classes together, but we sat on complete sides of the room; plus the fact that she skipped class on a regular basis. So, we really didn’t know each other.
My mom works from home selling jewelry and crap, and my dad recently go laid off. And I have 3 other siblings who are all younger than me. So, our income has been slow and I had to get a job. I started working at the coffee shop- Just Deserts. Amanda came there frequently, and we talked and became instant friends.
We rode our bikes to fairs and concerts, and always had time for mini doughnuts. She was like a dream come true. I was always popular, but also sparky and dorky at the same time. And Amanda was no different; except for the popular part. Heidi hated her, so did the rest of the I- Girls. Amanda didn’t care about them, so I let their sneers roll off my back.
As the days went past, I let Amanda into my house, and let her know about my families situation. She really understood and felt with me; not for me.
There was this one week, when I had to work other shifts just to help my parents pay the electricity bill, and I wasn’t my usual jolly self. Amanda had taken me out, as a treat. We made the plans and everything in Art, and we set off right after school. We headed off the the tattoo shop, and she insisted on me getting the Tigress, my ‘so-called totem’.
I really didn’t want it, but i didn’t want to be rude so i got it. It’s still on my arm to this day, and it hasn’t even faded, its gotten darker. While Amanda was getting hers, I had to go to the restroom. She watched my purse, holding my precious $20 that I was trying to keep for myself.
We left soon after that, and when I got home, I raced to room, and rushed to get out my $20. It wasn’t there! I was so frantic! I searched over and over again, thinking about how dead Amanda was for stealing my money. But I noticed a envelope that wasn’t there before, and quickly opened it, only to find $3,573 buckaroos! Amanda! How could she!
I just had to return it to her! So, the next day, I waited at her locker to return it, but she never showed. I waited until Art, but she never showed! I wanted to stuff in her locker, but I knew they did weekly locker checks. I didn’t want the VP to think she stole it.
So,if you see Amanda or hear from her, tell her how I should give her back this money!
WHO IS AMANDA VALENTINO?!?

How do I know Amanda?
I guess my story is like most the others. She was in my homeroom, and I sat right next to her. We were talking, but nothing important came in the conversation. I guess we just…talked.
After a while of ‘talking’ we became pretty good friends. We met up at the pizza parlor down the street, and then she took me, like many others, I’m sure, to the tattoo place. She wanted one for her, but when we looked at the animal totems, she pointed out mine.
“That’s your totem. The horse. A leader.” she’d told me. She eventually got me to get the horse on the underside of my arm. She told me she was the coyote. I could see that in her.
She came over to my house, and we talked some more. Somehow, destiny came into the conversation. She asked me if I ever wondered if things we meant to be. I just went along with it. Sure, whatever, I was thinking. She showed me her key collection, and gave me one, as a gift.
The next day I was at her locker, waiting to walk to class with her, but she never showed up. She never came to school that day.
And somehow a horse was painted on my locker.
Where is Amanda Valentino? But more important: who is she?

Like addictd2musics experience with Amanda, Amanda didn’t go by Amanda, she went by Stacy Johnston. She & I were in 3rd grade together.
One day she & I were walking down the street when we passed a tattoo parlour. Our convesation went like this…
“Hey, El, look, it’s a deer”
“You have to get that!”
“It’s your totem. I’m a coyote, see” and she showed me her wrist
“Woah, is that real?”
“Yeah El, its totally real” Amanda was always one for sarcasam
“Ok, ok” I said & forked out $2 for the fake tattoo.
The next day she was gone. I called her, I IM’d her, I even tried to find her house like Callie did but I had no luck.
We didn’t have lockers at our school but the day after I saw a deer graffitied on my tub.
I have just one question…

How Do I know Amanda?
Well I don’t know who this “Amanda” is but I do know who Roni Black is.We met in 7th grade.I was new at school and she well..Was the only nice person In School.All the other girls made fun of my Curly hair and fashion sense…But Roni (or Amanda) seemed to understand me.
She laughed at my lame,dry jokes and helped me with my English.
I came from London,England and had a very strong accent that nobody understood.Amanda said she had relatives in London and was used to our strange was of talking.We shared many intrests and Had a special friendship that everyone frowned upon since Amanda was one of the most beautiful girls I had ever seen.She had long Red hair and green eyes.
Not like this person everyone is talking about.
I was heart broken when I heard her father had gotten a new job,since I had only known her for 5 months.She gave me a braclet with a star in the middle that I still wear around my wrist today.When she left I was back to being the wierd girl that everybody made fun of.
She never told me where she had gone and when I tried to call her..There was no answer.
I havn’t heard of her since.
Well,Until now that is.I realised that it was her when I heard about the mysterious girl that dissapeared.A girl that changed the way she looked all the time.
Its Roni..I’m sure of it.

hi im a girl in Utah, 2 months ago Amanda was at my school, and i was her guide, or so i thought, I’m looking for amandas other guides at Utah so that we can piece together some clues that have any similarities. This is what she told me: she was born in a small town called Orion and when they were driving her back from the hospital, the car crashed and her dad died and her mom had many injuries, so she stayed with her aunt Maruada, But when she got older she had a love for the snow and her Aunt let her go to Utah for high school but only if she stayed for 2 more years. So in 2 years time she moved to a small apartment 7 streets away from school in Utah.
After 4 weeks she disapeered.
