Amanda woke up in
the morning to the sound of her phone ringing. It took her a moment to realize
what was going on and by the time she reached for her phone, it stopped.
She checked her
phone logs. It was missed call from an unknown number.
Probably a telemarketer, She thought and got
She had her
breakfast bar and then reached for her laptop to check her messages from the
She was quite
shocked to see how many comments there were. She checked her stats and followed
the first Facebook link that had a substantial amount of hits.
Turns out a fairly
popular paranormal Facebook page linked to her blog.
Most of the comments
were quite supportive. Some, not so much.
"Wow, you are
brave or stupid. Either way, good luck to you."

out to dry."
"I could not do
what you are doing. I much rather enjoy hiding in my basement, commenting on
blogs, safe and sound."
"OMG you are so

male enhancement products.
Someone took the
time to make an ASCII art of a male part. Amanda deleted it. It didn't add
anything to the conversation.
Finally, she answered any questions that some of the commenters had except
"When" questions. She wasn't sure when and she didn't know if it
would be wise to tell everyone. If she goes, she wants to be there with only
one friend. Not a whole group of people who are curious.
After she was done,
she hit 'sort by time' so she can see if there was any new comments since she
signed on a few hours ago. There was one.
"I know you
have the key."
deleted it and shut her computer off. That was enough of that for the day.
