First Chapter First Paragraph Thursday Intros ~ Something Kindred by Ciera Burch

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.

Clever Creatures of the Night by Samantha Mabry, House covered in plants with a girl on the roof, horror
All the early mornings look like this: The distant hills are shrouded by a dull grey murk. The trees are frozen in their stark stances. The sky is so thick and ash-coloured that it’s impossible to tell what kind of birds soar silently by until they let out their small, distinguishable cries. When the sun finally hauls itself up and over the zigzag horizon, its wak light is tissue-paper pink.
Is this beautiful or not?
