Who: Amy Peterson and whoever might find her
What: Amy set out for a run at the school's track but wound up running in a Lawrence, Kansas park.
Where: The park in Lawrence
When: Tuesday afternoon
Track and field season was over, but Amy never stopped running. Her coach would constantly express how impressed he was and sometimes used her as an example for other students involved in track, but she wasn't doing it to get approval. Running was how Amy let off steam, how she cleared her mind of uncomfortable thoughts. She'd been running every chance she got since the night she was turned into a vampire. Of course she was human now, she knew that, but sometimes she could still imagine the heavy metallic taste of blood lingering in her mouth. This was the one thing she could never talk about with Charley. She was afraid of how he might react. Instead of talking about it she took to running, trying to focus on the wind in her hair and the feeling of her feet hitting the ground.
She had the course committed to memory and could easily run the whole thing with her eyes closed, but she felt something different. Curious, she opened her eyes and slowed her pace. She stopped completely when she found that she wasn't on the school's track at all. This was a path in what she assumed to be a park. It was landscaped, the path paved with concrete, and completely unfamiliar. Amy slowed to a stop, catching her breath and trying to figure out what was going on. The path wasn't the only thing wrong. Amy could also feel a change in temperature. This place, wherever it was, was significantly cooler than any place in Nevada. Something was wrong and with every passing minute she was growing more and more uneasy.
Amy had never really lost time before. While her night as a vampire had been sort of hazy, she still had memories. She had no memory of being transported to another town. At least that's what she imagined had happened, in this case. Her mind was considerably more open since she'd discovered vampires were more than just myth.
She stretched a little bit and went in search of some kind of sign indicating where exactly it was that she'd wound up.
