Living On

Vanessa Green experienced something that no girl ever should. And she has to live the rest of her life knowing about what had happened. She was the target of one of the most dangerous outlaws in the world. She didn't know why then. She still doesn't now. Can she figure out the motive of the killer and stay prepared for his next strike? Or will she be slaughtered like planned all those years ago?


2. Chapter 1

I took a slight and gentle step forward. I was still hiding, just a little more visible. My brother was standing in front of me, arms folded and he looked cross. I wanted to go out there and admit everything but I couldn't. Just didn't have the guts. He would have been disappointed with me and I would have been disappointed with myself too. I knew that yelling at my nanny wasn't going to get me anywhere but I had to vent my anger out on someone.

Instead of giving in to him, I took a bigger step backwards. He could not see me. I was afraid - not of the consequences but the fact that I let him down. I took another step back, into the shadows behind the big board that stopped him from seeing me. I could no longer see him and soon I could no longer hear him. He had gone.

Inch by inch, I moved forward, still aware that he could have been standing there. Stealth was one of his great points. But he wasn't. Disappointed and relieved at the same time, I strolled out of the storage room, desperately trying to keep balance so that I didn't knock over any equipment to alert him of my location.

I took in a deep breath and held it all in, knowing that when I released it, my panting would be twice as loud.

Tip-toeing and taking small steps, I scrambled round my house in complete and utter silence, afraid that even the slightest sound would give me away.

But he wasn't the only one looking for me.
