The Call

Written By Alexander Cralley. Art By Grace Henrie.

It was a normal day like any other. You were on your way home from school. You had left later than usual. Today, you had thought of staying after school and do homework with your teacher. School ended at 2:30, but you leave school around 5-ish. It was fall, so it was getting dark by now.
As you walk, you pull out your cellphone and turn it on. Cellphones weren’t allowd during school hours. You noticed that you have a new voicemail. It was from an anonymous caller.
Play the voicemail.
Delete it. (Who cares about some anonymous caller?
