 “I can’t believe it’s been three years since you became my guardian, Nicola. My mum left me on the doorstep of the kids dump eleven years ago, on my fourth birthday.”  Natasha Violet said.

“Your mum told us you had died in a car accident she had.  She said they’d had a private funeral, just your parents.  I was so surprised when you came back stage at the concert at the Concert at the O2 that evening Ash.”  Nicola recalled, “Look, there you are when I got you from the care home.  Wow that makes it sound like you were six.” She laughed.

     Natasha, or Ash as everyone now called her, Nicola Roberts, her cousin, and the rest of Girls Aloud were looking through a photo album of photos from when Natasha was little.

 “Look, Ash, you look so cute with your friends from the care home.” Nadine said, looking at a picture from when Ash was nine.

“Maybe I should get the cake, and then we’ll give you your presents.”

I can’t believe the girls gave me a diary so I can write my stories. I have most of my stories on my computer, but I prefer to write them out.  I always had a vivid imagination I was told.  I've only shown my stories to Nicola and my best friend, Erika-Mae Meriden.  My confidence isn't very good when it comes to my stories.  I really should write one in my book, but I don’t have time.  Later, I have a surprise and I think I know what to expect.

“Are you sure Ash doesn't know about the party?”  Kimberley asked Nicola.  Cheryl, Nadine and Sarah had all gone to get the living room ready for Ash’s birthday party, but Kimberley and Nicola were in the kitchen, getting the nibbles and food for the buffet ready.

“Yes I am sure.” Nicola replied, “My mum and sisters are coming in an hour and the rest are coming later.  She’ll be really grateful you've done this. Oh and Erika will be here in half an hour to keep Ash busy getting ready.”

“I hope Ash will like it though.”  Kimberley carried on worrying.

“She will, don’t worry, you’re like a sister to her.” Nicola reassured.

“And you’re like another sister,” laughed Kimberley as the doorbell rang.

Ash went to get the door.  Erika was early and she and Ash went to get ready for the party.  

Within an hour they were ready, Ash wearing jeans and a purple lightly sequined vest top and Erika was wearing a flowery maxi dress.

All Ash's Aunts, Uncles and cousins had arrived, when the doorbell rang.

Nicola and Ash went to answer the door. A Woman came in the door and before Nicola could finish saying “you’re not meant to be here” she had put a hand over Nicola’s mouth and knocked her out.

‘Help!” shouted Ash as she did this, ‘Help!’

Kimberley was in the kitchen getting more drinks and went into the foyer to see what was going on.  By this time the woman had a hand over Ash’s mouth and was shutting the door behind them.
