I am starting to worry that something is really wrong. I haven’t heard from Isabella in two weeks, and that’s not like her at all. Here’s what I know:
The day before Halloween, Isabella was supposed to meet me at the library, which is where we usually wait for each other. We were supposed to go to my house to get ready for a Halloween party one of the girls in my art class was throwing that night. She was going to be Red Riding Hood and I was the woodsman. Isabella never showed up. I texted, but she didn’t answer. I called, but her phone just rang and rang. I wasn’t that worried at first. This happens sometimes. There have been times before when Isabella’s grandmother would say she wasn’t allowed to go out, or she’d have too many chores at home. I was disappointed, but I figured I’d see her in a day or two.
Now her phone is going straight to voicemail. I think it finally ran out of battery. That does happens sometimes because she can’t always get to town to charge her phone. But it’s been two weeks. Whenever she can’t make it, she’ll let me know or apologize later, so I just don’t get what happened. I don’t know what I could have done to make her not want to talk to me anymore. It’s not like we fought or anything. I know people grow apart or have a falling out sometimes. But no matter how much I go over and over those last few days before Halloween, I can’t think of a single thing that would have made her cut me off like that.
