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.


14. Chapter Fourteen~Carmen

Skylar guides me through a woodland area, which like I said earlier, didn't think exsisted. We walk and he stops. 

"This way Carmen." He says, smiling. He knocks on a tree and says "Kimmy, it's me"

"Hey you." A blonde girl with her hair in a fierce french plat. She looks at me and isn't too happy. "Sky, who's that?"

"Oh, that's Carmen. Another runaway."

"Is she from here?" The girl asks. 

"What do you think."

"Okay...She isn't, sorry about my harshness earlier Cara, the name's Kimmy Night. That's Skylar Sapphire. We're runaways."

"It's actually Carmen." I reply

"Oh okay, come and join us." She says.


I walk with Skylar and Kimmy into a little abandoned cottage..thing. It's made of wood and looks incredibly basic. Another

girl comes out from the door, thing. 

"Hey Sky, Hey Kimmy, who's your friend?"

"This is Carmen, Sofia. She's-"

"Another runaway, cool. Hey, nice to meet you Carmen, you're all just in time for supper, It's not much seeing as Sky took about ten years to find food, but you'll survive. Come in."


We all walk into the cottage. It's really homie and reminds me of the seven dwarves' cottage from Snow White. There is only

about 3 rooms and a huge tree is growing inside it. The first room is used as a living room and kitchen as far as I can see, there's a really raggy couch and a fire place, a gas oven and little table. Sofia and Kimmy walk to the kitchen area and Skylar crashes on the couch like every other teenage boy. (Reminds me of Travis.) and Kimmy and Sofia serve up what seems to be soup. Kimmy takes two of the bowls and hands one to Skylar. She walks up to me as smiles "Here. You need to eat." I take it and thank her and Sofia. We all sit on the couch and eat our supper. 

"So Carmen. What brings you to LittleVilla?"

"Just a place for me to go really. I was running away from my step-dad."

"Cool. I ran away from my Aunt, she was a total hypercrite who wouldn't accept me being gay, She was going to lock me in a attic, I'm sure." Sofia replies.

"Me and Sky ran away from an arranged marrige, my god-for-saken step-father hated me anyway, fucking prick."

I nod and finish my soup. "Where should I put my bowl?" I ask Sofia.

"By the sink chicka." She replies.



I'm being allocated a bed by Skylar, he's made it quite clear that there may be about seven of them, but  he apparently 

thinks 'ghosts sleep in them'. He chooses one by the window for me. I place my stuff beside it, I watch carefully as Skylar leaves, instead of walking through the door, he climbs up the massive tree that grows through-out the house. I sit on my new bed and watch him climb. He reaches the top and says "Kimmy?" Maybe they hang out there. I lie down and close my eyes, thinking about everything. Travis.Jack.Mum.Blue.Indigo. I will miss them so, but I'm not safe. I might stay with Sofia and the others for a while. I don't want to cripple them for long though.
