Imagine it's a normal, autumn evening. You finish your homework and then you kiss your mom goodnight.

You wake up the next morning after sleeping in. Curious to discover why you weren't woken up for school, You enter your mom's room to find an empty bed, sheets untouched. 

At the time, you convince yourself that mom has just gone to run errands. Her car is gone. Her wallet is in the kitchen, but her cellphone is missing. The kitchen door is open slightly.

Off to school, beading a mental wampum as you imagine the story of her disappearance. It can't be anything too serious. She could be anywhere. She could be with anyone.
