Growing up Michelle and Amanda had been as close as close could be. Being sisters and being only a year apart in age had made their bond so strong that whenever you saw one you saw the other. This closeness continued on from elementary school, throughout high school and even into womanhood. Michelle and Amanda were sisters…sisters who loved each other so much that nothing could separate them, not even a bold face lie.
Amanda met her husband Terry while she was attending The University of Memphis. After dating for two years the two got married and shortly afterwards they had two children. Michelle who had no children had welcomed Terry into the family with open arms, as did the rest of the family. Michelle spent many days at her sister and brother in law’s home, spending time with the children and having girl talk with her sister.
One day while at Amanda’s home babysitting the kids while Amanda and Terry had date night, Michelle received a phone call from Amanda. Michelle had initially thought that it was just a courtesy call to check on the kids and see how things were going, but she immediately realized that something was wrong when Amanda began to give her specific details on finding a specific item in the house.
