1. Liam, Alice, Band, Car

I woke up to the bright sunlight of dawn. I sighed. Today was a cold day. More people would be in cars, and less people would pass me. Not that I get much on a sunny day either, but at least it’s enough to buy some food. Most of you probably don’t know what I’m talking about. Well, let me introduce myself.

My name is Alice. I am 17 years old. I was born on the 27th of November, which is also in 10 days’ time.  And I have been homeless since I was 11. I spent the majority of my life on the streets. Don’t even ask me about my parents.

It was chillier than I thought it was. I huddled into my blanket, making sure it covered all the holes in my clothes. No one was out. Of course. It was 6am. Who would be up then? Well, there was one figure coming closer. I thought it would be a middle aged man going to the office. But as the figure came closer, I could see it was a boy, about 18 or 19, wearing a checked top, jeans and a big coat. He held his coat closer to him, and shivered. Then he spotted me. I looked at him with wide eyes. I was sending mind messages, don’t come over, don’t come over. I’m not in the mood for sympathy. He’ll probably come, give me an awkward pat on the head as if I was 9, and then put a pound coin in my cup. And I wasn’t in the mood.

He smiled at me. ‘Hello,’ he said cheerfully, ’I’m Liam.’ Wait, was someone actually treating me like a normal human being?

‘Hi,’ I said back. Inside I was really, really, scared. I could do anything that could change his friendliness to sympathy. ‘I’m Alice.’ Right on cue, I shivered. Great, Alice. Well done.

Instead he just smiled again. ‘It is cold, isn’t it? But I like it. November air. Christmas is coming!’

‘Yeah, I love Christmas. The Christmas lights on the shops look so pretty.’ I said. I expected him to say, Well, enjoy your Christmas! and walk off. But instead, very surprisingly, he sat down next to me. ‘How old are you?’

‘I’m turning 18 in ten days,’ I said cheerfully. Despite my situation, I was still excited. I could go for a proper job! Something amazing could happen. A Christmas miracle, as such. I know, I’m naïve, but a girl can dream, can’t she?

‘Yes, she can. I mean, I had a dream, and look where it got me!’ he said. And I just said my mini speech in my head, out loud. ‘I’m 19, just in case you were wondering.’ I smiled at him. Then I realised what he said. ‘What do you mean your dream?’

‘Well, I’m part of a band, One Direction.’ He said happily, his eyes shining.

‘Wow, it really was your dream wasn’t it?’ I said to him.

‘How can you tell?’ he said.

‘Your eyes are shinning. You say it with pride. Any fool could tell you wanted it bad.’ I said. ‘Wait? One Direction? I think I’ve heard of them!’ I pick up the newspaper next to me and show him an article. It says, “One Direction’s Album ‘Take Me Home’ Go To Number 1 In The US!”

‘Congratulations! I’m a bit late, but I can’t really tweet you, can I? I joked. He laughed. Then he looked a bit upset. ‘What’s wrong?’

‘I have to go now.’ He informed me. ‘But it was great talking to you. You’re really nice.’ He got up. ‘Bye,’ he said.

‘Bye,’ I said back. Never mind. He probably was just sorry for me. I hear him answer his phone.

'You’re just driving on the road? Yeah, I see your car! I’ll wait in the middle bit of the’-

He’s cut off by a scream.

My scream.

A Jeep is coming his way.

Not the car he was talking about.

A different one, swerving a bit, trying to avoid a major crash.

Liam just stood there, frozen like a deer in the headlights.

Without thinking, I jumped forward and pushed Liam to the pavement.

I tripped.

A car was coming my way.

The car that Liam was talking about.

I heard a scream.

I heard a car horn.

I saw white.

 

 

Then I saw black.

 

 

Dun dun dun! I didn't know I had a dramatic side! This movella's just by me (Avery) by the way.  El's writing one on her own, so I decided to write one too. I had this idea for a while, and i decided to bring it to life!
Love you so much my carrots (a 'Fate?' referance)! Pls read El's book too, and the one we wrote together. THANK YOU!
