Yet Another Runaway's Tale

(EDIT 2/12/16: Yes, I know this story is terrible and while I'd delete it out of shame I'm kind of keeping it so I can laugh about it with friends.)

In a little village in the south of England, Carmen Stacey and her best friend Travis are living in a world of sweet nothing. But when things become sour, Carmen abandons her modern fairy tale life.

Just half an hour away is a different society, run by the corrupt LittleVilla family, with the eldest daughter, Kimmy allready on the run. When a series of events becomes illegal, Grace LittleVilla flees with local troublemaker Henry Sapphire.


25. Chapter 25~ Grace & Henry

I watch as Travis packs a bag so we can head back to LittleVilla. I don't want to head back, but then I want to be with 


"So, If we are heading to LittleVilla tomorrow, could I show you the best bits of Oakwood village."

"That would be nice" I says quietly. "Travis?"

"Yeah Gracie?"

"What was your friend Carmen like? If you don't mind me asking."

"She is awesome. I love her like a sister. It's just-"


"I think she has crush on me, which is awesome, but It just, seems wrong.know?"

"I see."

"I'm not into quirky girls. I just like someone I can rely on whom I'm not going to argue about s piece of toast!-We did that often-but you know, she deserves better."

"You shouldn't say that."

"Why? You barley know me!"

"I know, but if you like her. Go for it."

"I don't."

"Oh, okay. I'm going to find Henry."

"He's outside, smoking probably"


I walk to Travis's back garden, it's big and there is a tree house. I hear music being played from it. I walk to the rope

ladder that's dangling casually from it. I'm about to climb it when the rope is pulled into the building and I fall onto my back.

"What's the password?"

"Henry's a dead boy walking!"


"Grace is awesome!"


"What is it?"

"Grace is a wired freak who should really stop sucking up to my cousin!"

"Screw you."

Henry laughs. The rope slowly falls so I can climb it.

"And don't let go this time" He calls

I clamber onto the rope. "You can pull up now."

"Okay." The rope is pulled upwards and I am then pulled into the tree house.

"Welcome to our temporary  home Gracie Louise LittleVilla"

I hate it when he calls me by my full name, it's him teasing me and it sucks. I want to find a nickname that will piss 

him off. I think for a while, and then I come up with an idea.

"Thanks Sir Henry Mother-Fucker."

"What?!" He says and looks startled "I never knew such words were in your vocab Miss Gracie..oh fuck."

I laugh. "Looks like I win."


"Yeah Henry?"

"Do you think we could try that kiss again...We don't have to mention it to anyone it's just-I-I-"

"Spit it out!"

"I've never been kissed by a girl before and you kinda ruined it for me."


Henry laughs. "So?"

I move my head towards Henry's and place my lips on his-Ugh, I'm cringing as I think this-and close my eyes. The next thing I know he's kissing me back, I know I hate him. But this is so worth it.


"Gracie and Henry sitting in a tree K-I-S-S-I-N-G! And I mean this LIT-ERA-LLY!"  My god-damn cousin screams. 

Remind me when he is reunited with his precious Carmen to ruin and romantic embrace they share. The strange thing is. Gracie hasn't pulled away. The old Gracie wouldn't even have called me 'Sir Henry Mother-Fucker.' It's really funny how we've only been gone a day and she's a completely different person. I wonder what her precious friends would say to this! "OMG! Grace-Louise why are you snogging that ruffian!" Who's laughing now you little bitches! Ha ha ha! 

Travis has brought his bag into the tree house and Is watching us with popcorn in his hands. Cheeky little- I notice 

that Grace has placed her hands around my neck. Wow. She must be a champion snogger or something. She pulls away from me-Dammit!-and smiles.

"That was my first kiss too Henry. I've seen things like this in the movies. It was perfect. Screw you Travis."

Travis laughs and starts to applaud us. "Thanks for permanently scaring me guys. Screw you too Gracie"

I laugh at Travis's comment. "I missed you cousin." I notice that Grace has her arms around me and hasn't said anything.

"Gray, you awake?" I ask her

"Oh, yeah.." her voice is like a massive yawn. "I'm just totally tired." She lies on the floor and pulls me down with her, I laugh.

"Grace, do you want a pillow or blanket. The floor is REALLY cold at night." Travis says "I should know."

"Knock yourself out" She says.

"Well how about you get off your ass and sleep on the sofa bed. I better see if mum is back. see you later."

Travis leaves the tree house but just as he does, Gracie heads to the sofa bed and Travis whispers:

"She's a keeper. Don't screw this up mate"
