1. meeting destiny

 I felt hopeless, why was I living?. What purpose was there to life?. I had nothing. My mum was the only person who loved me and she died years ago. My dad was still alive but I wish he wasn't. He used to be a good man, he loved me and my mother more than anything. That all changed when she died. He was depressed, he started drinking and that was it. All of a sudden I had to grow up. From when I was 13 I had to look after myself. I didn't have many freinds, I was too depressed for them to keep interest. I was failing at school. What was going to happen to me?. Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse it did:   I walked into the front door after school. Our house was a small suburban semi. It was bitter outside, the wind nipping my nose. The thin tights I was wearing didn't help. "Dad?...." I whispered, creeping through the door expecting him to be passed out. I cautiously tip toed down the corridor leading to the living room. It smelt odd. I was used to smelling rum, whiskey and vodka in the air but this was different. It was a strange sensation of grass and rat poison. I walked into the living room to find a bowl of white powder on the table. I knew what it was just from looking at it. I didt think dad would go this far. Herroine. My dad was talking drugs. "Dad, why" I said to myself. "Why what?" A gruff voice came from behind me. "Why can't you be responsible!" I shouted back angry. "Don't speak to me like that, I'm your father!" He shouted.  "Then you should act like it!" I replied losing my confidence slightly as he towered over me. "Your a stupid, cheeky, GIRL that needs to be punished!" He exclaimed moving toward me. He raised his fist. I flinched away from him. He punched me hard on the cheek. I was shocked, he had never done this before. I watched him lift his fist again. I dodged his hand but it caught my chest. I ran.out the door and down the street. I didt know where I was going. Any where was better than home.    A mile away from home I came to my senses and slowed down into a walk. I rummaged through my pocket and found a five pound note. That was enough for a coffee. I strolled into Starbucks sweating and huffing. The que was long. I stood behind a tall boy with light brown curly hair. I stared up at the menu. A hot chocolate sounded good right now. The boy turned around, probably curios of my huffing and puffing.   Harry POV  I could hear someone walk up behind me in the que to Starbucks. They were breathing heavily. They sounded worried. I turned around in curiosity. There infront of me stood a stunningly beautiful girl. She had big, soft brown eyes that reminded me of Bambi and a perfect jaw. She had soft flowing blonde hair. She looked as if she had a red mark imprinted on her face. This made me curios, it could just be a birth mark or something but a spark of fear and sadness in her eyes told me it wasn't. Just then I noticed her stating back. I must look weird to her staring. " hello?" She said softly. "Oh, hi sorry, I didt mean to stare. I'm Harry" I introduced myself. "Cora" she looked away. "She didn't want to speak to me but a stupid urge made me want to know about her. "Are you alright?" I questioned. Smooth Harry, just beat it to the punch why don't you. She looked at me and said "it's your turn". I turned round and gave my order. " 2 hot chocolates please" I said to the starstruck cashier. Sometimes it was annoying bieng so famous but Cora didn't seem to notice.
