Rummy always lived in her sister, Rose's shadow. All she feels is worthless to the point she runs away. But when she meets Fox, the well known crook, she dosn't know what she is getting into. Can she make it out with her newfound freinds ALIVE? Or will Fox have the last laugh and Rummy will stay in his cluches forever?
(I wrote this book in middleschool/my freshman year to where this was my first completed book)


7. Chapter 7: tours and rules:

“Where should we begin?” Moonshine mumbled.

“What?” Rummy questioned as she looked at the kids that were running around.

“Oh, nothing.” Then both were silent for a long while. “There is only one, no two things you should know.” Moonshine said then she looked at Rummy.  Moonshine took a ragged breath and Rummy switched her attention back to her. “One never ever make Fox mad. Basically, do what he says and you will do fine. Two never leave.” Moonshine rambled.

“What!” Rummy yelped. “I…I thought that I could leave.”

“If you do you will be killed. Anyway see you at the ceremony.” Moonshine said and started to walk off.

“What ceremony?” Rummy asked as she caught up to Moonshine.

“You won’t be known as Rummy around here anymore. Fox will give you your new name and you will choose to either keep it or choose your own.”  Shine said. Then one of the kids ran right past them. He looked like he been in a hurry and his goggles looked like he had been in some sort of explosion he had on khaki shorts that had many pockets and a green faded shirt. “Hey Giz, Hook got himself a bite.”  Gizmo looked at Rummy then at Moonshine.

“Really? A bite, eh? This would be the second one this week. Hook is doing really well.” Gizmo said. Then he hurried on saying, “I have to meet up  with Navy, Nava, News and Point, see you at the ceremony!”

       “Rummy, how about looking around the place by yourself till dinner?” Moonshine said as she scurried to Fox’s office.

Rummy walked around for a while she saw many kids all shapes and sizes. When she came to what looked like someone’s room. Many army flags were hanged and straitened, the window was boarded up with wood and it was painted yellow that had faded. Gizmo was with two guys and one girl. Giz looked over his shoulder and noticed Rummy. “Rummy I want you to meet some of my closest friends.” he announced as he led Rummy to the group. “This is Nava, Navy, Point and News,” he said pointing at each one.

Nava had on a small dress that had flowers all over it. Rummy could tell that she had shorts on underneath. Navy wore a leather jacket with a white shirt underneath and blue reversible shorts with sneakers. Point just had a plain shirt and cargo pants. And News wore a ball cap whose logo got ripped off. He also dressed plainly like Point.

“Nice to meet you all but I must get going.” She said and Navy perked up saying,

“Whenever you need a hand let us know and we will start clapping” Point said Rummy just laughed.
