Wings 2


2. Chapter Two-William-aged 10

I lay on my bed, my tenth birthday and my mum died. Stupid Malik saying ‘My birthday was worse’ Ha yeah right! He’s just a spoilt little amateur.


I stared at the ceiling and and whimpered. Not like anyone heard me. Thank God!

Knock knock


I quickly wiped away my tears.

‘Hey sport’ It was dad


‘You have a visitor.’ Dad smiled stepping aside to present Robin.

She ran up to me and hugged me tight.

I nodded to dad to show I wanted him to go away.

He did so and shut the door behind him.


She squeezed me so tight I had to hug back. She was 8 and was the same height as me.

“I’m so sorry to hear about Martha.” She showed her sympathy, she couldn’t hide it if she tried.

I rested my head on her shoulder and let the tears take over.

‘I’m sorry to make your shoulder wet’ I said wiping her blue blouse that covered her shoulders

She shook her head.

“We’re best mates, this scar is a souvenir you’ll never loose, and I’ll be here for you”

I nodded and smiled bit.

‘Every scar is a souvenir’ I pointed out

“I’ve always wanted to use that though.”

I rolled my eyes and sat on the bed. Robin sat next to me.

‘Now what Robin? I’ve never been close to my dad.’


‘My mum used to be there when I was bullied, when I failed at my tests, when I first rode my bike, when___’

I stopped and looked at Robin. Her head was tilted and she was listening like a dog when he hears his treat bag being rattled. She didn’t even mind that I interrupted her.

“You were saying?”

‘She was always there for me.’

“I’ll be here, for eternity “

What an amazing person!

‘What’s up?’

“Come Home now darling”

‘What? You know I’m comforting William!’

“Now, you’re only eight and I expect you to do as I say or I’ll get your father to hide your mobile.”

‘Fine bye’

She hung up.


She nodded

‘I’ve got to go, I’ll be back soon though’ she waved and showed herself out. ‘Bye Mr Mills’ she called to Dad.

“Bye Robin thanks for dropping by!”
