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.

16. Chapter Sixteen~Grace & Henry

"Where are we going to rest?!" Grace asks, "We've been walking for hours!"

"Stop moaning, we just have to get out of LittleVilla!" I say, "Did you bring your phone?"

"Yes." She replies 

"Get rid of it, I smashed mine earlier."

"No!"

"Do you want them to track us?!"

"No!...It's just.."

"Spit it out!"

"Kimmy spoke to me."

"What?!"

"I tried to call her yesterday, and she answered. She's alive!"

"Great, you told her"

"I couldn't...she was so quick!"

"Look, we're almost out of LittleVilla. Once we find a place to rest we'll try to call her again. God, sometimes I don't know what's wrong with you."

Grace smiles, "Same here Henry, So anyway do you think our parents are mad?"

"Certainly" I reply, "they're always mad at me."  I smile back at her. It's like...she likes me..back....

Ugh.

That's all I can say about Henry at the moment. He's acting like a love-sick teenager. Smiling at me like we're a couple. We're not. We'll never be. I know there's a nearby village I want to get to, I'm also really tired, Kimmy's shirt is quite thick and it's making me sweat. It's really unattractive, but then, people wouldn't recognise me. When I'm on TV, mother makes sure I look worthy of winning a beauty padgent, which I hate. So I look completely different. I might as well give myself a new name if any press members ask about, our disappearances will be in the news by tomorrow.  (Ha!) We pass the newsagent where me and Kimmy go sometimes after school, it'll nice to never see that place again. The owner's son Owen constantly flirted and harassed Kimmy. It was embaressing  on both our parts.

We continue to stroll through town. I don't know this side of LittleVilla, it's so....different. I'm not aloud to venture past the newsagents where me and Owen hang out sometimes, he always had a thing with Grace's sister, Kimmy. But Kimmy was dating Skylar, even though mother and father never really approved, she was "disrespectful, manipulative and problematic"  I think it's bullshit. We walk past some housed completely painted in graffiti. This is where the rebellion must live. Most of Sky's friends live around here. We continue to walk past the streets. The street labels are different here. I remember when the city was founded all the streets and avenews had labels like 'Staminson Drive' and stuff, but now, the streets are just named 'REBELLION SQUARE'  did Christopher just ditch the people who thought differently to him? I look at Grace, she looks horrified. 

"Are you okay?" I ask her.

Grace turns to face me. "I can't be here any more. My-My father is a monster. Can we run now?" She asks

"Whatever you want sweetie." I say.

 

We run from the rebellion part of LittleVilla. I don't want to see this part. How could he? How could he let a rebellion

get so out of hand that he just disregards good people! Is this where Kimmy hangs out? Is this why she turned her back on us? This is sick. I don't like it. I hate it. I hate him. Me and Henry are running now. He isn't as scared as I am. Then again he never shows any emotion since Skylar left, he's like a different. person. 

 

We are near the exit of LittleVilla. I never want to see this town again. This whole society we have created is sick. No 

wonder everyone hates us. No wonder we get death threats and I don't have a facebook account. We walk towards the you are leaving LittleVilla sign and once we are there we stop.

 

"Once we pass this sign, I'm not escorting you back. So if you have second thoughts go." I say to Grace just before 

we leave LittleVilla. "Once we pass this sign, I'm no longer taking responsibilty for you. If you want to go else where and not follow me, you can. But I'm going to head to a nearby village and stay there for a while" 

"Henry?" She asks 

"Yes Grace?"

"Could...Could I stay with you?"

WHY?

Why the hell did I say that?!

"Erm. Sure. Are you ready to go?" He asks me. 

"Yes. Goodbye LittleVilla. Thanks for imprisoning me since I was 8. Screw you." I say.

Henry laughs. "Ya know Gracie. I'm starting to like you."

"Too bad." I joke. I start walking. "Lets get the hell out of here!"
