I flipped through my book and landed on page 85!
A  creaking step was the only answer. Jared would call out, so who or whatever I was dealing with wasn’t him. They likely had no idea where I was exactly, so I had the upper hand. The terror came with a rush of memories about Sam chasing me through the mansion with a knife in his hand. I stood out of sight at the top of the stairs, listening. Was that another footstep? I left the stake down my waistband. Since a vampire would have to be invited in, this was probably a human. A hard shove down the stairs was my best option.
I wanted so badly to look down the stairs, but I couldn’t risk showing myself. I inched up to the corner. The top step was also a creaker, so that would be my cue to move. I held my hand over my mouth, breathing quietly against it like all the girls in horror movies.

Something Kindred by Ciera Burch, Girl holding a camera
There are only two things I know about my grandmother.
One: Her name is Carol Annette.
Two: She left Mom and Uncle Miles for good on a Tuesday morning, after promising to take them to the ice cream shop when they got out of school.
That’s why it makes no sense that Mom has dragged us from New Jersey, all the way to Maryland, to take care of her for the entire summer. Excerpt for the fact that my grandmother has cancer. I think the idea of losing her permanently freaks Mom out more than she’d ever admit.
Death does that.
