Elsie has always been invisable to those around her, so she decides to runaway. She finds a big abandoned flat, but another person has had the same idea.


4. Runaway

It was Monday and time to go to school; I walked through the big front doors dreading every step I took. Someone suddenly pushed past me, knocking me over and all my books scattered across the floor. I bent down to pick them up but a girl walked into me, pushing me against the lockers. I felt tears pricking my eyes. I was determind not to let it show but I couldn't help it. I shoved my books into my bag and ran out the doors, tears streaming down my face. It wasn't as if anyone was going to miss me so I ran. I found a big block of appartments that I ran in. I walked up onto the first floor and sat down and leaned against the wall and cried.

"Do you live there?" asked an unfamiliar voice pointing to a bright blue door next to me.

"No," I replied.

"Oh," she said, "Its just that appartment has been vacant for a couple years now; I was hoping, maybe, I would finally have a neighbour," she said as she walked down the corridor with big plastic shopping bags banging against her kneed, Maybe I could live in there, I thought to myself. I turned around so I sat facing the door. I pushed it but it didn't budge so I pushed harder and it opened a crack. I crawled in and, sitting there on the sofa was the last person I expected to see here.
