Agatha Christie is the world's best-known mystery writer. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language, and another billion in 44 foreign languages. She is the most widely published author of all time in any language, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare. Her writing career spanned more than half a century, during which she wrote 79 novels and a short story collection, as well as 14 plays, one of which, The Mousetrap, is the longest running play in history. Two of the characters she created, the brilliant Belgian detective Hercule Poirot and the irrepressible and relentless Miss Marple, went on to become world famous detectives.

    Broken promises (part 1)

    This story is about me. I have broken a very important promise. Now im going to tell you all about it. It all started on Saturday, May 16th 2014. Like usual in May, its a rainy afternoon. I said to my Mom " Can i go hang with my friends?" My Mom replied " What are you thinking? Theres a flash flood watch. You are NOT driving in this type of weather condition!!!!!" At the time, i just turned 16 a week ago. I hate to admit but back then, i was a big brat. And still till this day still regeret that 100%. So that night i went to bed. I stayed up all night intill my mom was asleep. When she finally fell asleep, i got out of my pajamas and got dressed into a party outfit. I snuck out my bedroom window. I went to my car and drove to my best friends, got drunk, and spent the rest of the night there. I wish i had not done that. The next morning, you will not believe what had happened and why i regret that choice. (Next part at orange res. 2)

    Kienne

    A young woman walks in. She's wearing black jean shorts with a black lace shirt and glossy black killer heels. An assortment of gold bracelets jingle at her wrist. Her blue eyes are outlined smokily with black eyeliner and mascara and make them look paler then they really are. Her auburn hair is loose around her shoulders.
