When Summer’s sister goes missing and no one has any clues as to where she is or who took her. It is up to her to uncover some clues and follow them to find her.
Lumcar is a small town, a quiet town where nothing ever happens. So quiet you can hear the birds wherever you go, even on the main streets. Most people don’t have cars but even the ones who do rarely use them other than for work and school.
Lumcar School is in the middle of the town. Almost everyone who works there or attends it walks, but some use the limited public transport. One bus every half an hour. The public transport is pretty scarce as the town is so small.
A young girl with long, wavy chocolate brown hair with a pink streak in the back walks alone down a street leading to the school. As any other school girl she carries a small bag full of books and a small pencil case. She checks up and down the empty street and crosses over the road. She flicks her hair back out of her face. Out of the corner of her eye she sees a red car pulling up just beside her.
The window rolls down and a young man, mid twenties looking, watches her for a moment. He looks in front of him and back to the girl. “Hey” he says. She nods at him politely and continues walking at a now increased speed. “I’m here to pick you up” he continues unfazed by her increasing speed. “Your Dad needs you home, your Grandma has taken ill” he continues. His voice so calm he sounds almost truthful. “I’ll call him when I get to school, thank you for letting me know” she replies in a slightly shaky voice, knowing full well her Grandma died two years previous.
She walks even faster now increasing her speed with every step. Knowing he won’t get her to come willingly he drives fast a few metres ahead. Thinking he’s given up the young girl slows her steps. The man stops the car as she nears, jumping out and grabbing her wrists tightly. She struggles but he is too strong. She bites him and almost gets away but another man jumps out of the car, grabbing her from behind. She hadn’t seen him; he must have hidden himself until he was needed.
In the back of the car she struggles to get away but it’s no use. They get away with only two witnesses. A woman and child…
