A Cupcake Fairytale

"Things were changing for us... and this time for good.”

Abandoned by her father before she was even born, Madison had to make do with whatever life handed out to her. She sweetened her own life by loosing herself in the imaginary world of fairytales. She was forever stuck on princesses and the sweet bakery treats her mother constantly creates.

When the opportunity of a lifetime presented itself to her, Madison realises that her life wasn't all that it seemed to be....


6. Pure Betrayal







“What’s she doing here?” I said.

“What’s she doing here?” Savannah exclaimed.

“I invited her to the sleepover!” Savannah stated to me like it was perfectly normal.

“But you said it would be just us two!” I protested.

She said it would just be us two!” Stacey declared. “Obviously, she was hiding the fact that she doesn’t want to be lumbered with a bore like you.”

Savannah was just staring at us. I couldn’t believe that she betrayed me like that.

“I’m out of here,” Stacey announced, flouncing out of the house and slamming the door behind her.

“How could you?” I blubbered, starting to cry.

“I wanted it to be just us but then I wanted Stacey here too...”

“So she’s your new best friend?”

“I never said that!”

“So what are you saying? That you enjoy Stacey presence more than mine so you decided to include her in our friendship?”

“Well you’ve been so zoned out lately. You never have time for me anymore. It’s all me and mum, me and mum,”

“You know what it’s been like for me! You have a dad, I don’t. You can ask you mum for a PS3 and she won’t hesitate about money because she has tons and a good business! Your life is paradise compared to mine.”

“See! This is why I like Stacey more than you. She never goes on about family and money.”

“If you like Stacey more than me then go ahead and be her best friend. I don’t need you. I don’t need ANYONE!”

I took my sleeping bag and stamped out of her house, running to the flat with tears streaming down my cheeks.

I expected to come home to Mum watching TV and sipping hot chocolate but when I came in, she wasn’t there. I gently shut the door and looked around. No empty cups and the TV remotes were in there normal place. I tiptoed to the bathroom door and placed my ear against it. I didn’t hear any running water. I went to Mum’s bedroom door. She was crying!


I opened the door wide and saw her sitting on the edge of her bed with her head in her hands. Her mascara was running down her cheeks and I could see that her eyes were red through the gaps in her hands.


“Mum what’s the matter?”


She took her head out of her hands and looked at me. Her eyes had guilt and sorrow written all over them. I knew then what she had done.


She promised me it wouldn’t be like last time and she had already skipped phase one!


I said nothing. I stood up and walked out of her room. Just as I was opening my door, Mum ran to me and clung to my shoulder.


“I never meant to hurt you!” Mum whispered.


I knew then that Mum was a liar. The thought sunk into my mind and fizzed through me like a broken firework. Mum had betrayed me! Savannah had betrayed me. I felt as if the whole world had betrayed me.


I pulled away from her grip and marched across the living room. She didn’t stop me. Sometimes I wish she did.


I grabbed my sleeping bag and my special mug from the table. I opened the door and looked back at Mum. She was just staring at me. Puzzled. Like she wasn’t sure whether to stop me or let me go.

I banged the door behind me and ran. I didn’t know where I was going but I had to get away from her. From life as I knew it.
