Danny and Owen. Two young lovers. Banned from seeing each other by disapproving parents. They do everything they can to stay together. But their parents are onto them.


10. Call-Owen

Danny was always agitated with me. She thought I couldn't see it but it was obvious. She was so sour towards our families. Wanting me to just forget but it wasn't that simple. 

When I heard some of mums first voice mails there was a pain in her voice I'd never heard before. She even began crying in one. I couldn't bear it. I had to tell them that I was OK. That I was safe. 

I never knew Danny could be so cold. I was starting to pull away from her. I was considering going back. This was insane. Our money supply was dwindling and if we weren't careful we'd be in debt. But Danny was stubborn. 

I nearly left one night. I was ready and packed and Danny was asleep. But I couldn't bear to leave her like that. Without an explanation. Without saying goodbye. I still cared for her but this wasn't right we needed to go home. So one night I made a decision. I had to tell them where we were.


I picked up my mobile and stared at it for a while. I knew it was the right thing to do but I felt like I was betraying Danny. If she ever found out she'd never forgive me. I scrolled through my contacts list till I found it. 'Dad' I left the room and stood in the corridor listening to the phone ring. On the third ring he picked up. 

"Hey bud. What's up?"

"Dad? I wanna come home" I sat on the floor by our room. 

"Oh? Do you want me to pick you up?"

"Yeah. And tell Danny's parents to pick her up or something."

"And she asked you to say this? Couldn't she ring them?"

"Er. She doesn't actually want to go.  But she needs to. She can't afford to live here on her own, especially of we can't afford it together."

"Right. Where are you?"

"We're in Bideford. The Anchor Inn."

"OK bud. I'm on my way."
