Chapter 1

5th Grade

"C'mon Heather, aren't you interested in it a little bit?" my best friend Samantha asked me, trying to peak my curiosity.

"No Sam, you know there is probably a reason why there is a Keep Out! sign in the front..." I respond, trying to seek reason with her.

"Aren't you a bit curious?"

"No, Sam, no."

"Whatever, then I'll go there by myself Heather!"

She runs off to the distant mansion and I chase after her, knowing full well that she was trying to bait and trap me. I fell for it easily, because I really cared for her well-being(a bit more than she did). She shakes the gate and it is locked for her misfortune and my great fortune. She struggles with it for a while but once I reach her, she gives up. I pat her shoulder and we walk back home together.

8th Grade

After our last class of the day finishes, we make our paths home and pass by the supposedly haunted mansion that Sam is super obsessed with. Ever since elementary, she has been begging me to explore this with her. I mean Sam is my best friend and I would do anything to make her happy, however, I still cared for her well-being. We get really close to it and Sam stops for a bit to observe it but I just pull her along making an excuse that I needed to "get home early" even though I didn't have anyone to go back to.

12th Grade

By this time we had two other friends(who were both boys) that joined our group. We were walking home together (talking the whole way) and we passed the mansion again. This time, Sam declared out loud, "Hey guys, want to explore this mansion right here? I mean, it looks fun!" Castille and Anthony look at the mansion and nod their heads in agreement to Sam's idea(who was more of the leader of the group) and she looks at me in defiance knowing that I have to give in with Castille and Anthony also agreeing to her "amazing" plan. I groan in disgust and before Sam can discuss a way for us to get into the mansion in the first place, I say before realizing it, "Guys, shouldn't we record this to make it go viral?"

They pause to think about this but Castille remarks, "Then what are phones for in 2017? Calling?" Everyone chuckles a bit at this and Sam begins to think out loud her plans to get over the gate.

Oh, boy! Isn't this going to be a hell of an adventure!

abdiabdullahi: i liked it a lot you have so much room for improvement i am not saying i have great knowledge of writing i know if you put in more effort you could reach new levels and i kinda felt like you were rushing things and we did not get to see the better part of oriens growing up

esme mata: It is a very well written book with amazing descriptions that you yourself can feel the love in the air, in your heart, and in your eyes once you start crying along with the main characters. This is truly my favorite book.

GWritesNovels : This book was highly enjoyable! The story was beautiful and I loved every moment of it. Allison and Nicole felt very real and three-dimensional, and their relationship was beautiful. I would definitely read it again, and these characters will stay with me for a long time.

SeanSavage: Good plot that moves fairly quickly. Time passage somewhat vague. but not indecipherable. Very good syntax, grammar and punctuation. The story flowed very well, however, the breaks between chapters and the time jumps tended to be slightly confusing at first. I could see where the author was going...

Ilanea Zavala: I loved it and well I really hope you continue writing more to the story.

William Elliott Kern: Long story, the plot uncovered midway through the story. From beginning, the story was fast moving. Then dragged on for quite some time. The Author was good in describing her characters, their clothing, etc. but a lot of that disclosure distracted from the story moving fast.Not withstanding, the...

aoifecollopy22: I loved how the author had the conflict come back later in the story. Also how they passed time without going over anything. That really helped move the story along. This kept my up for a few hours. YOU SHOULD READ THIS

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

Ro-Ange Olson: This is such a different romance story. I loved it. The book was very long and could be split into 2-3 books in my opinion, but I'd hate to have to wait to read the next part too. I loved the chapter from Darius's point of view. It was a really different way for the writer to cover time and also ...

nehmeyasmin: It was the most heart warming but heart breaking story ever and I want the next part right away. It kept me hooked until the end even though there were a couple mistakes it was truly amazing. I think this book could go far if it wanted to
