CLARA 
Tuesday, August 28;
The time has finally come. It's Day One of the trial against Luciano King and this is sure to be the juicy, headline making murder trial of the century. Everyone is vying for a chance to sit in as part of the audience. But be careful of disclosing who you support, because both the Kings and the Morattis will be there, naturally.

+ Story including Clara's mother, Heather Brighton and Jeremy +

It's a lonely day for me, I was sitting on the front steps of my home waiting for something interesting to happen. As usual, it didn't. 

There was a pile of newspapers finely stacked on my little bench. "The Kings + Morattis" Of course, the bolded headline of the week. The trial of the century. The talk of Chicago. I never liked these stories...they were just reminders that I needed to be careful with who I choose to socialize with, or I'd be their victim, or maybe they'd be /my/ victim.

"Clara, dear, it's time for breakfast!" It was mother calling out, announcing my Tea and Madeleines. My favourite beginning for a new day

I walked into the dining room with all the newspapers in hand. These were exhausting and captivating all at once. I liked writing just as much as I adored reading. I always thought women could do anything, but writing and reading were also a great education resource. 

I sipped my tea as I read the first sentence of the Kings + Morattis trial article. "Finally the murder is to be verified by the judge." I had shivery skin once I skimmed the rest of this paragraph. This wasn't something I could read while eating a joyful breakfast. 

"Mom, can you get rid of these? I don't want to trash the house with all this paper" I handed them to Heather while taking a bite of my pastry. 

"You're father still has the reports from the other decade, you should read them..quite interesting, how Chicago really changed.." she glanced out the window and quickly turned the curtain. 

What did that mean? How different was Chicago back then? but most importantly, who was outside that managed to make my mother act suspiciously? 

"Can you tell him to leave? Your little act is poor, mother. Just stop it.." as I spoke, there was a subtle knocking on the door. It was Jeremy, when was it not?
