“Okay so let’s get started, first things first. Kaleb didn’t seem to care today either.” Ella said once we got in her house.
“And I think I have a possibility about who it was.” Emma revealed.
“Well, what if she meant it literally, what if it was Autumn.”
“Well now that you mention it, she really didn’t seem all that worried when she called Saturday.”
“Okay so that’s two people who don’t seem to care, now we just need to find motive.”
“Kaleb might have been scared she would say no so he asked her out last Friday and killed her because she said no.”
“And Autumn might have just been mad and strangled here then tried to hide it by making seem like she hung herself.”
“Okay, so now we have a motive for both, what else?”
“I don’t know, but I don’t think Kaleb would do that, even if she rejected him.”
“Well like you said anything is a possibility.”
“True, true. Okay well I think we need to watch Criminal Minds to figure out what to do next.”
“Hahaha, oh Emma only you would say that.”
“What? I like the show and it would help.”
“Haha okay I’ll see if I can find one on YouTube.”
“Yay! Criminal Minds!”
So we watched Criminal Minds and did out homework. After our homework was done we ate and started to think about what to do next. I was 99% sure that it was Autumn; she had the most likely reason to do it, she lived with her, and she has no alibi for that night. But I couldn’t bring myself to believe it, Autumn was her stepmom and said she loved her, but did she really mean it? I really didn’t know and Ella started to realize that I was probably right about the same time I realized I was also.
“Emma I think you’re right about Autumn.” Ella said to me while staring off into space.
“I think so too. She has a likely motive, she lived with Summer, and she has no alibi.”
“I know, it’s just, I don’t want to believe it.”
“Me either, it almost seems like she did it this way on purpose.”
“I think she did.”
After that we sat in silence for what felt like eternity. It was too horrible to believe, Autumn had been so nice to us. She was a wonderful host and now knowing this I can’t believe she actually did. My mind was in a jumble and I couldn’t untangle it. Between all the Summer drama and just regular high school drama, I was a total wreck! But now Autumn is behind bars and Summer is behind the clouds. Things will never be the same, never.
