My Sister is Dead

PROMPT: Novel Writing Competition

I walked through the door and I could feel a coldness in the atmosphere. I just got back from Sarah's party. I had a few drinks, but I felt fine. In the room were two policemen sitting with my mom and dad. They were both sobbing. I took another step forward and they made eye contact with me. I was too scared to ask what was going on.
