School seemed to be the one place that Sophie could escape her own thoughts even if it was only for a few hours. Thinking of Mia, of what could have possibly happened to her sometimes overwhelmed her. Sophie knew that some of the other students looked at her with pity. She couldn’t exactly blame them. What do you say to the girl whose sister just disappeared into thin air, like she evaporated off of the face of the earth? One minute Mia had been walking home from her friends house, the next minute she was nowhere. Even after several months Sophie couldn’t quite grasp the fact that her sister was exactly that, nowhere. Chief Swan had been doing his best, he assured Sophie and her family that they would find Mia, but there were no leads.
Looking around the lunch room at all of the other student’s, Sophie smiled. They were happy, talking, laughing, just being normal teenagers. She couldn’t help but wonder where her brother Nick was. Usually they had the same lunch period. Normally she didn’t care where he was, he had his friends and she had hers, but lately Sophie felt as though her friends had been slipping away from her too. She could only assume that it had to do with the fact that Mia had gone missing. What Sophie couldn’t figure out was whether it was her who was pulling away or her friends drifting away. Sophie needed her friends now more than anything, she needed normalcy. She needed to feel like she was just another teenager in Forks.
