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.


15. Chapter Fifteen~Travis


I was playing Sonic when I found out. I was just about to beat the crap out of Eggman when mum came into my room.

"Travis, Scarlett's here to see you."

"Erm..Why?" I asked her.

"She's gone missing, and you were the last person seen with her."

I drop my x-box controller and stare at mum like she's crazy. "What?!"

"Just go and see her, Travis." She says. 

I stand up and walk downstairs, I see Scarlett, she's in tears and looks like she forgot to put her make-up on. A bit like Carmen at the weekend.

"Hello Travis." She says looking a bit upset "Do you mind if I ask you a few questions?"

"Erm. Sure." I say, I sit down on a chair which is parallel to Scarlet's 

"Was Carmen acting strangely when you were hanging out yesterday?"

"She had a black eye, but when things like that happen, I don't mention it. She hates being questioned."

"I see. Do you know where she would go?! I mean when she sneaks out, do you know where she hides?"

"No." (When she sneaks out, she likes to be alone. So I wouldn't know.)

"Okay. If she ran away, would she tell you before hand?" 

"We're best friends-"

"That's not exactly and answer."

"-And she didn't tell me"



How can she not tell me?! We always tell each other our secrets! If she ran away, she'd tell me! Why?! 

I place my head in my hands and cry


I carry on crying, why? Why did she leave us, leave me?! What did I did wrong?! 

"I'm going to go."

Mum comes downstairs and notices me crying.

"What. Have. You. Done?!" She asks Scarlett  

"All I did was ask him a question and he had a breakdown!"

"Sure you did! You ask why Carmen ran away, maybe you should stop blaming her friends and look at you and that prick you married!" Mum screams. "Get out!"

Scarlett looks shocked. "What did you say?! What do you call Jack!?"

"And I'm right! Ever since you and him got together you and Carmen have been seen less and less! I actually thought you both were dead! He's brought you both down! He's a drunk, he uses you! I'm trying to make you see! What did you tell me last night? You heard her screaming! Why didn't you worry? Didn't you care?!"


"Proves my point. Now get the hell out of here, and when Carmen comes back, I'm calling the socal. I know Jack is a messed-up drunk that if you won't get rid of, Indigo, Blue and Carmen deserve better."

"Screw you Matilda, you bitch" Scarlett says as she leaves. She waves sweetly at me and whispers "It'll be okay, she'll come home."

I don't believe her.
