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.


10. Chapter Ten~Carmen

I'm out.

My legs hurt like hell and I feel weak, but I'm out. With a little bag by my side. I must find Travis. We need closure. 

I run through the suburbia and pass all the shops, I get a few bad looks from the bitchy girls but it feels so great to be free.I love this.I carry on running until-

"God Carmen!"

Travis! My No More Hero!

"Well, I was just about to go to yours, but come on Cara, now you're with me, we're going to the lake, this ice cream wont eat itself!"

I laugh, These moments will be the fondest moments of my life.


We arrive by the lake and he takes two spoons from his pocket.

"So, how's the headache? How come your mum let you out? You weren't well enough to come to school and yet, you're well enough to run into people!"

"Sorry" I reply

Travis starts laughing and starts helping himself to the ice cream. 

"What flavour is it?" I ask.

"Cookie dough"

"My fave! Pass me a spoon!" 

Travis stuffs the other spoon into my mouth and laughs again.

"I can't believe you skived. What happened to my sweet little Carmen?!"

"Who said I skived?" I ask

"I know these things."

I laugh, god I'm going to miss this. 


I check the time on my phone, 4:25, I hope Travis doesn't have to go home any time soon. I see Travis stuff his spoon and take out his phone from his pocket. 

No. No. No No

"Sorry Carmen, I've got to go, mum's worried." 


"See you."

Travis runs off to the road near the lake and crosses, I then hear him call

"Oh! And keep the ice cream!"
