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.


12. Chapter Twelve~Carmen

I walk away from the river, abandoning the ice cream, I walk behind a bush, where I hid my stuff and take it from the

floor. I walk away from my village hoping to never see it again, well I hope anyway. 

You wouldn't believe how I feel right now, lonely and afraid. As I walk further and further away from my village, the shops and homes are starting to be swapped with cars and McDonnalds restaurants, It doesn't seem welcoming in there unless you're with a full-paying adult, I'm not planning to waste my money on crap.

I walk past the McDonnalds and carry on walking. I'm not in my village anymore. I'm walking towards the city nearby.

Where am I? I keep asking my self. Then I see a sign.

Welcome to LittleVilla

Wow. I've heard of this city before, It's like it's own republic or something. Christopher LittleVilla was horrified about all the poverty nearby and the 'stupid' actions of the government and bought a city so his daughter Gracie wouldn't be effected. Mum was screaming at the telly when it was on the news. She dubbed it as the 'Rich bastards holiday resort' (She forgot I was nearby). By looking at it, I don't blame her.

The city seems to be decorated for some reason. Like a festival is going on. I see a lodge by the mountain top, Wow that

looks nice. Shame I won't be allowed to see it. I look to the other side of the lodge. There is a huge house, I bet the LittleVillas live there. I decide to look for a place to rest and lay down my stuff, Are there any forests? I look around. Don't think so. I look about and I see an alley way. I run towards it and place all my stuff in a corner and i take out my blanket from my bag. Looks like I'm sleeping rough. I feel my phone vibrate in my pocket. Mum's trying to call me. I throw the phone as far away as I can so they can't track me. I see some people dragging a man near where I am, I shudder in horror as I watch the thugs beat the poor guy up until he's shaking on the floor. I walk towards the guy who was beaten up.

"Are you okay?"


"I asked if you were okay, those assholes beat you up a fair bit just then"

"Oh, I'm fine. What you doing here on your own little girl?"

"Ran away"

"Me too."


"The name's Skylar. What's yours?"


"Nice. Look, you going to sleep here tonight? Of all places, come with me, me and my mate have a great hiding place."

Skylar picks himself up and I go and get my bag from the corner.

"Those pricks will be back any second to check I'm dead. So we better start running now"

"Sure thing"

We both run out of the alley way laughing, Skylar winks at me and whispers

"Follow me kiddo."
