Meet Me Deep In the Forest -By the Willow Tree-

*Part of Story*

I crawl over to the relaxing stream and look at the moonlit reflexion. But the person who stares back at me, isn't me. She has the same flaming red curls, the same height, but what I see isn't who she was a year ago. Instead of the light blue eyes with speckles of gold that could light up anyone's day, is a dark blue pit. A hole, that is filled with anger, confusion, and hurt. Her face is shallow. This thing is in pain. Her bruises and scars show on her arms.

I don't know this person.

*Real Description*
Scarelott lives with her parents and her little brother, Oliver, or Ollie. They are very close, but when her parents, Neil and Molly start to have troubles with the bills, things start to go downhill. They get into drinking problems, and now they are abusing their children. When Red (Scarelott) can't take it anymore, she runs away. She is seventeen years old, and knows only one place that she can stay. Deep in the forest, by the willow tree.


6. I Got A Job

I fill out the large application while sitting on a stool on the counter. The first question bothers me though, even though it is the simplest question imaginable. 

"Full Name:____________ Nick Name:______________ Birthdate:_____________ Hobbies:________________" and on and on about useless information. I lick my lip, thinking of a new name. I know I can't use my name anymore, so I change my last name to Berlyn, but I can't think of a good first name. I am wearing a long sleeved red hoodie, and whenever I put my head in my hands, my sleeves fall showing the many scars on my arms. I got it. Scar. Scar Berlyn. I quickly write it down. I smile to myself. A perfectly fitting name. I chuckle a tad before continuing to fill out the application. 

After two hours of countless writing, I finally look over the finished application and smile at my new name again. Scar Berlyn. I decide to keep my real middle name though, Ember. I like the sound of it. Scar Ember Berlyn. I glance down at my new name one more time before asking Alison to hand this to her manager. She smiles at me and takes it gingerly as she once again heads into the back, disappearing from my sight. Whenever she finally comes back, she smiles.

"Welcome to working at Starbucks..." She glances at me, silently asking for my name. This time, I smile back while I say,

"Scar. Scar Berlyn." I hold out my hand and she takes it laughing while repeating. "Welcome to working at Starbucks, Scar. You start tomorrow at four. And e will have your uniform, oh, and the manager always gives us our first pay check at the beginning of when we start, I don't know why, but here," she says, holding out an envelope that has the number 326.25 and a dollar sign on it. I gasp.

"This is ho much I make a week?" I ask, amazed. 

She laughs. "Yeah, but don't worry, in a few weeks it'll be up to 4 hundred." She shrugs, while I take it all it. I already have over 5,000 dollars already. By the end of summer, I could be able to get an apartment or something... I squeal as I work myself up. A job. I just got a job.
