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.


18. Chapter Eighteen~Grace

We've stopped running away from LittleVilla and we are now walking past a McDonalds restaurant I haven't seen a 

fast food restaurant in years, there wern't any at home. Dad thought they were 'scum.' Little did he know, blocking a country from fun seems to make him the scum. We walk past, and I see Henry stop.

"It's so beautiful." He says, he's staring at the restaurant, typical. 


"We must go in, come along Gracie."

"I think you're mad."


"Well, I am hungry."

"Yay! I love you Gracie!"

"Too bad, come along Henry." I say, walking towards the restaurant, We both walk in and he smiles. 

"I'll pay" Henry says as we join the queue 

"I know." I reply. Once we get to the counter we see a guy, probably in his teens, he's got a fair bit of acne, as all teenagers do and he has a MY NAME IS JASPER  badge.

"Hi, welcome to McDonalds, can I take your order?"

"Yeah, like could I have erm....A big mac and chips please, with a sprite to drink?"

"Sure, how about your girlfriend?"

(What?!) "Erm" I say "I'll have, erm. I'll just have some chips please, and a fanta too, please."

"Okay. That'll be £5.25"

Henry hands Jasper the money.

"Thanks dude."

Within a matter of moments Jasper is back with our food.

"Thanks, come again." He says as we find a table. We sit down and Henry passes me my food.

"Thanks" I say. 

"The pleasure is all mine Gracie."


After we finish Henry and I leave the restaurant. It's become nightfall, we walk as I admire the moon, it's beautiful yet 

annoying. I wish I could live on the moon, I really do. We're almost near the village that Henry was talking about.

"I'm tired." Henry says, "Do you think we should rest?"

"No, not until we get to the village, we're almost there anyway."

We walk into the village, there are newsagents all over the place, there are also bed and breakfasts. It's quite nice really, we look around, I walk towards a street lamp with a sign on. I look at it.

"Gracie, what are you doing?"

"Check this out! There's a missing person sign,"

"Oh." Henry's face drops. "That's the girl my cousin was going on about!"

"You're cousin?"

"Yeah, my cousin Travis, he lives around here."

"Her name's nice." I say. "Carmen..."

"I know, well best keep moving, eh?"
