One of the best

Hi. I love KOLC, and this book is one of the best. Now, I tried writing my own story... so idk but here it goes.

Indigo admired the bright orange butterfly in front of her, stretching out her small hand to stroke it as it rested on a flower. It was a clear sunny day in New Jersey, and her parents had brought her to the park.
“Hi there, little buggy,”. She whispered. “What’s your name?” The butterfly flew onto the little girl’s arm, fluttering it’s wings as if to say hello. Indigo giggled, Animals had always loved her, and she loved them back.
“Stop, that tickles.” She watched it crawl up her arm and onto her shoulder.
“Now, Mr butterfly, where are your friends? You can’t be all alone out here, it’s dangerous.” She spoke with sincerity to the insect, looking into its tiny eyes. The butterfly hummed and flew off her shoulder, hovering in front of Indigo. Her eyes widened as another orange butterfly flew over to her, next to the first.
“Oh, there, I knew you weren’t alone.” Her small forehead creased as they hummed as three more butterfly’s appeared next to her.
“Oh, I see, it’s a party, and you invited all your family!” We just need a few more and it’s would be a butter-palooza.” She smirked, proud of her cleverness. Standing up, she cupped the first butterfly and twirled around, the obvious entertainment for the party. As she ran through the park, more and more by butterflies followed her, making a winding parade. The flame colored bugs swarmed around her, creating a of whirlwind of sorts.
“Wow, thank you, Mr. butterfly!” She looked in wonder at the hundreds of wings before her, entrapping her in a bubble.
“Oh my gosh, INDIGO!” A woman yelled with fear as she saw the swarm. Fighting through the wall of bugs, the mother scooped up her little daughter, and instantly, the butterflies flew away. “Oh indigo, what the heck just happened?” Her voice shook as she hugged the toddler.
“I spoke to Mr Butterlfy, mommy!” She said with excitement, ignoring her moms fear. The mother glanced around, scanning the trees and park around them, and gulped.
“Honey, we have to go, right now. Come on, darling.” Still holding indigo in her arms, she started sprinting to her car.
“Where are we going?” The girl asked with pure curiouity.
“Far, far away.” The woman mumbled as she speed home.
“Huh?” Taking Infigo inside, the mother slammed the door and locked it.
“Yes honey?” Her husband was in the kitchen making lunch. “How was the park?”
“Help me pack. We’re leaving tonight.”
It was dark out, and only a few single stars twinkled in the sky as Indifos parents rushed around the house, gathering all their things, and stuffing them into bags. Indigo was playing with her dolls by the window as the black car pulled up.
“Mommy?” The mother groaned, almost as if she didn’t know if she could handle a single question as she stuffed clothes into a suitcase.
“Who’s that?”
The door bell rang, and the parents froze in their tracks, leaving an eerie echo as the bell rang once again. The father looked at his wife, with a long look of sadness and nodded his head in retirement. The wife trudged to the door, opening it a crack, and gazed at her daughter with sorrow, almost as if she knew what was about to happen.
“Hello?” She looked at a tall man standing in their door way. Please open the door, miss. He handed her a small card, and looked expantedly at her. The mother suddenly looked like all the joy in her left in one swoop as she gave him back the card, and stepped aside, letting the man in, her head bowed. The father stood inside, his hands protective over his daughter. Head held high, the man handed the father a single sheet over paper, and spoke a single sentence that changed Indgios life forever.
“I’m sorry, but you’ll have to come with me, Indigo Helm.”

Go Sophitz!

Ok, I believe that Fitz and Sophie should totally be together. First of all, I do agree with the Keefe/Sophie people that Sophie actually really cares about Keefe, but she does not have a crush on him. She has a crush on Fitz, and Keefe INTURUPPTED a Sophie and Fitz kiss moment.

I am so excited for the new book! *squeal!*
