Lisa was all alone. She had no family and few friends. She spent little time with those she did have though as she spent her time reading, studying or just thinking.
It had been ten years since her family was tragically taken away from her and so far she was just coping, though everyday was hard. She had left school, gaining amazing grades and was now working part time in the library. She was working there as it would be a while before she got the job she wanted at the Springfield elementary school. A teacher would be leaving in a couple of months and she was to take over.
Lisa walked from the library to her new home, bought with the money she had saved up, and opened the door. It was only small and on one floor but it was home and she loved it. She stepped inside and was greeted by her cat, Snowball, who meowed loudly at her and rubbed against her leg until she picked her up. The black cat snuggled in to her arms as Lisa walked towards the kitchen and made herself a drink using the one arm she had spare, glad the day of sorting books was finally over. She walked in to the next room and sat down, allowing the cat to settle down on her lap and fall asleep.
