While walking to and from school, Lucinda would see a dog covered in mud and trash.
Lucinda decides to the the dog with her because if it stayed out for one more night the dog would've froze to death
Once Lucinda had the dog at her house she fed it and even found a paper on its neck with its name. His name was Chauncey. Lucinda also gave him a bath and discovered that he was actually a white dog.
Since Lucinda was not allowed to have dogs in her building, she took the god down to the basement and left him there until she knew what to do. Soon after all the power in the building go out.
The power went out when Lucinda got back to her apartment. She ran downstairs to find Chauncey before anyone else did. When she got there Chauncey was no where to be found. She then thinks of a girl who she goes to school with who could keep Chauncey and help her fin him
Once Lucinda goes to Ashley, she asks for her help to find Chauncey. They could not find him. Lucinda goes back to her apartment and the power is back, but again the power goes out. Lucinda goes down to the basement again and there Chauncey is. She takes him and goes to Ashley.
