4. Halloween

Halloween. the word that once struck fear into every cell of her body. The word that could inflict pain no wound could upon her. The word that she would soon conquer... hopefully. For she had decided- this Halloween, she was not going to loisten to what her Dad said. She would not listen to what anyone said but her own brain. She would not let prejudice take over her life. For Alice, that girl with the problems was going to have some fun.

It was halloween and Alice was preparing her costume. She conspicously packed her fist aid kit in the base of her Jack o Lantern Trick or Treat bag. She pulled on a dress which she had managed to sew herslef, (with a few trips to get some more plasters along the way!) She told her slob of a Father that she was heading to the Launderettes and that she would be a while ensuring that they took good care of his best shirt, and set off for her first night of fun... ever!

There was noone here to bully her and take her lunch money- Noone to taunt her about her home-made clothes that she had been forced to make out of lack of pocket money, and noone to hurt her. Or so she thought. When she knocked on her second door, after obtaining a measly sweet, it opened to reveal Angela from school. 'You want sweets, do you?' barked Angela fiercly. Alice backed away, trembling with fear. She did not feel herself fly against the wall, or the punch in her head. She knew though...

She crumpled on the floor and did not know why, but this no-longer bothered her. She watched through her one non swollen eye as the crowds that had formed to watch the FREAK suffer, dispersed and willed away her analgesia- for this would not be so if it had not existed. She knew she must get help but couldn't- her smashed up first aid kit was no use as it had rolled away during the attack, and slowly, she lost conciousness...
