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.

27. Chapter 27~Henry

When I awake, Grace has curled herself up beside me and is sleeping like a baby. I walk out from the sofa bed and walk

towards the exit, there I see Travis in the garden, with a barrel which is set on fire, he's throwing pieces of paper into the fire. I jump down from the tree house and walk towards my cousin.

"You're up early." I say

"I'm an early riser, what can I say?"

I sit beside him. "Why are you doing this?" I look at what he is burning; pictures of his father.

"I do this when I miss him," Travis says "When he left, mum almost burned the house down, her meltdowns told me that she was..."

"Depressed."

"Yeah" Travis says "that. We don't really name it though."

I dive into my pocket and find a picture of mum and dad, Travis looks over my shoulder and says "That's aunt Alice and Uncle Simone, right?"

I chuck the photo into the greedy flames, I hope this photo burns like my parents will when they die, Sometimes I pray to the godess of death to kill them.

I then feel wired trigger from my neck, and I turn to see Grace kissing it, I pull her from my neck and she launches for my

face. "Ugh, Get a room!" Travis moans. Grace pulls away and laughs at Travis.

When shall we go Travis?" She asks

"Whenever." he replies

"Okay, I'll just get changed," She says.

 

I look at Travis, "Do you really want to go?" I ask him. He looks scared. "I want to find Carmen."

"Whatever you say" I say to Travis. "We'll go in an hour. Pack your things." And walk away, I see Travis put out the flames and scream "fuck you!" at the top of his lungs. I don't think he means me, I think he means his father.
