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.

33. Chapter 32~Carmen

I'm at home now.

Mum and Jack have tried to calm me down, they have said that I should pretend I never met Kimmy or Grace or Sofia or Skylar or Henry. Indigo and Blue have tried to cheer me up with a little play performed by their teddies, but it hasn't worked. I just about persuaded mum to let me keep the hair dye in. But in high school any plan of me dying my hair blue has gone out the window. I haven't spoken to Travis since what happened. I don't think mum and Travis's mum have been talking. All I know is I've got a social worker now and I'm never going to see any of my friends again. Mum asked if I wanted Travis to come over, but Travis's mum said he's with his dad, she asked me if I'm okay. When I hung up, I birsted into tears. When mum came to comfort me I started crying out to her "You said I should be friends with people my age! And when I did you take them away from me!" Mum sighs. "Dinner's in ten."

 

I walk up to the window when she's gone. The window has been barred and locked so I can't jump out of it again. I then hear someone walking into the room. 

"Is it nice coming home Carmen?"

"Is it nice beating up children?" I ask in response. 

"Don't. Just please don't mention it to your mother, Carmen I was pissed."

"I spent 2 days in the hospital before we got back. The nurse asked me how my leg was broken and why my left arm wouldn't stop shaking. I told her everything."

Jack turns me around to face him. 

"You selfish brat! First you decide to scare your family, the people that love you, by running away, and now I'm-"

 

He then walks towards the window 

"a police car just parked outside the house." He murmurs

"Goodbye Jack." I reply. 

"Jack!" I hear mum call "There are a couple of police officers requesting your presence down here now! What have you done?!"

Jack growls in anger and walks out of my room. 

"Oh, and Jack" I say. 

"What."

"Nice knowing you."

Jack says nothing and walks out. I follow him downstairs and mum rushes to me.

"What do you know Cara. Tell me please."

I sit down on the stairs with mum, we watch Indigo and Blue play together. I turn to face mum and say

"I think you know already. I think you know what he's done."

Mum sighs. "He won't be comming back to this house Cara. I promise."
