The Night Sky

Star is a girl. Like all the rest. Except she isn't. Life has already fell apart for her. Her mother died of cancer a year ago, and now she's left to cope with her dad and two brothers'. When she unexpectedly comes across a man with a knife when she was walking down the alleyway, she doesn't know what to think of it. Instead of opening up, she's always kept things hidden. Just like the night sky. But can she keep this one a secret, or will it just come spilling out?


1. Prologue

I'd heard it all before. The stories of how people - bad, bad people - tried to capture young children and take them away, but never would I have thought I'd experience it myself. Never. It all happened that one evening, when I was walking back from a friend's. I didn't think there was any harm in going down the alleyway - like I always did - but maybe that's where I went wrong. Badly wrong. I saw a shadow at the end, in the streetlight, followed by footsteps. I was going to carry on, assuming it was just a passing human - like always - but I don't know what changed my trail of thought. Maybe it was the fact that there was a van parked nearby, maybe it was the fact that there was no one about, or maybe it was the fact that I saw him draw something out of his pocket - something sharp - and all would know what that would be. A knife. My heart was pounding furiously, as hot sweat poured down my body. I didn't know what to do. I'd never had to think so hard in my life. But when I saw him turn the corner, on his way towards me, I had no option, but to run.
