The Swap

I forgot the old acount details for my last one and already posted the first chapter of this book so had to re post everything on this one. But I am the same person!

Star is normal, right? That is until she is Taken. Taken by other beings! Her memory has been messed with leaving blank spaces but when she comes back all she knows is that mysterious Justin plays a large part in saving her family and ex-boyfriend Damon!


2. Stars return


Just like every morning for the past three weeks Damon punched out a concerned text to his absent girlfriend. He had knocked on her door everyday only for there to be no answer. He was worried about her, it was not like Star to miss so much time at school and then not answer any of his calls and texts. There was something very wrong.

He slipped his phone into his pocket and slammed his locker shut. Only to see a glimmer of fair blond hair, could it be? No, Damon told himself of course it wasn’t. But as the girl came closer it was apparent that this was Star.

She looked so different though, or was it simply his mind playing tricks on him? No… this was definitely Star, although she could have easily been mistaken for somebody else.

Physically she looked like Star; same light blond hair, same pale skin, same contrasting rose pink lips…

It was her eyes; her eyes which had once been a deep chocolate brown were now an unnatural shade of bright green! They were piercing, unavoidable.

He tried to meet her gaze but her eyes brushed past him. He ran to her and wrapped his strong arms around her protectively but she pushed him away.

“Star, Star, where have you been? I’ve been trying to get hold of you for three weeks!”

“I was pre-occupied.” Her voice was distant, it sounded like someone else was saying it for her.

She looked past Damon and her eyes set on Justin. Taking in his messy sandy coloured hair, the dark blue eyes that looked as deep as the ocean.

Star pushed past Damon, feeling a force pulling her towards Justin. She felt guilty leaving Damon but there was something drawing her towards Justin. He turned around the corridor not having seen her. She walked after him speedily.

“Star, wait, what are you doing?” Damon yelled after her catching her arm and turning her towards him.

“Get off me!” Star screamed at him angrily. Tears stung her eyes as she saw the hurt in her boyfriend’s eyes.

“Just leave me alone and stay away from me; I don’t think we should see each other anymore.”

No, no, no! A voice screams in her head. It was as if her brain was no longer in control of her body.

He dropped her arm, pain buried in his dark eyes. He just stood there pain buried in his dark eyes.

Star unaware of what her feet were doing, turned and continued her pursuit.

Memories came flooded back, of why she needed Justin, what her punishment would be if she didn’t.

She felt so scared, she knew that to protect everyone that she loved she had to bring Justin to the “other beings”. It was him that they wanted really, not her, not her family. She followed him around the canteen and into a place that she had never been to before. He sits down under the trees alone. He didn’t really have any friends, which made him an easier target.

He rummaged around in his battered old rucksack taking out a packet of crisps and a brown leather book and dropped it beside him.

“Take it!” A voice in her head said menacingly.

She tried to resist but her feet tiptoed toward him. Her hand reached for the book but he whipped around and she drew it back, shocked!

As he saw her his eyes softened and relaxed.

“Oh, hi Star! I mean Star is that your name?” He said trying to pretend that he hadn’t had an on-going crush on her for years.

“Yeah it is. Your Justin.”

“I am…”

“Do you mind if I sit here?”

“No, not at all.”


She sat down next to him and looked at him, why did they want him so badly?

He looked at her, taking in everything.

“Did you get contacts?” He blurted out before he could stop himself.

She looked confused for a moment but quickly covered it up.

“Oh yes, it’s so I don’t have to wear glasses.”

“But you didn’t wear glasses before! I mean at least I didn’t think you did.”

She avoided his eyes and changed the subject.

“Did you want to go out this weekend?” She asked.

“Oh, yeah defiantly that would be cool!”

This earns him a dazzling smile. She passed him a sip of paper with her number on it and disappeared into the winding hallways.

Leaving Justin in shock staring at the numbers on the slip of paper. There was something not quite right about the out of the blue conversation but he wasn’t about to start complaining.

A pair of dark eyes watched the boy under the trees… Damon. Star had never shown any interest in this loner before, what had changed?
