Footsteps dashed at lightning speed down the staircase leading toward the living space. The little girl’s dreadlocks bounced back and forth as she jumped with glee.
Her Mom yawned and smiled at her child from the open kitchen area. She quickly whisked a bowl of eggs mixed with salt & black pepper. Then she turned around when she heard the toaster ding.
She placed the bowl of eggs on the table and grabbed the toast while it was still hot. From there she went back to frying the eggs which she had mixed with some milk, too.
Once the breakfast was ready she called Samera. There was no reply.
While her Mom had been busy getting their breakfast ready, Samera had come across an odd Christmas present that had some symbols on it.
The present was under the base of the Christmas tree. In a couple seconds it was gone and then it was near the fireplace.
She followed the gift and as soon as she placed her hand on it, the symbols began to scintillate. She gasped and a flash of light almost blinded her.
She covered her eyes and her whole body glowed right before she vanished right by the fireplace.
Her Mom panicked and opened the front door. She yelled, ‘‘Samera!’’ This was not over. She was going to search high and low for her child. But where in the world could she be?
