From a Letter to Carlene Brown from Holly Murrell dated October 25, 1974
Hey, Sweetie. I haven't heard from you since summer. I hope you're doing all right. With my luck, my grandparents are throwing your letters in the garbage. You're such a bad influence.
Well, I did it. I made the move. I drove all the way back to my hometown, Greenbrier. 2,000 miles in a car. I would have stopped in Wyoming to see you, but I barely had enough gas money to get here. It took me 4 days!
The house looks the same, just smaller than I remember. The people here seem very strange and look at me like I've done something wrong. Well, except one of them. His name is Eric, and he is very cute and very sweet. He actually helped me start settling in yesterday. He even invited me to his friend's Halloween party tomorrow...and I'm going. I don't know - I'm drawn to him. It feels like we've met or I know him from another place. It's hard to explain - like a dream. Hopefully he doesn't kill me...(haha...)
Write back please - you worry me.
