Life-Lesson Learnt

When five year old Gwen was told she was going to be the new human drug experiment, she didn't know what kind of life she was going to expect. Now, ten years later, she is broken, torn and planning her escape. That is, until, when she is in a drug-induced coma, she hears a familiar voice, and wants a face to connect with it. When they meet, what will happen between them?


9. Harvey-Chapter Eight.

       Twice in one day. Twice in one day, but now, now, it was in my own home. How did she find my address? My boss? My older sister? I thought the latter wasn't the one, as my sister never mentioned a human child-a teenage girl-in her line of work. But my boss? Surely he wouldn't-oh. Gwen must have phoned him up. Exactly like she said she would. Now that means that I was going to get my ear chewed out by my colleagues as well as my boss. Crap.

    'Look, I'm-I'm sorry about-earlier. Not many people know what-what I do so soon. I didn't even tell my friend Wynn until a few weeks ago. So...Please don't tell anyone will you?' Gwen said, looking up at me worriedly.

       'No, it's fine...I just freaked out, I guess. I swear I won't tell anyone else. Trust me.' I sat down on one of the oak chairs. Wynn...Where had I heard that name before? I thought, knowing it would be niggling away at me for ages until I remembered.

       "Um...You...Good? You look a little like a constipated moose!" Gwen grinned at me, and then it clicked. Wynn Frittle, the all rounded 'good' guy. 

        "Is that...Wynn Frittle by any chance?" I asked, not expecting the look of surprise on Gwen's face.

       "Ah! So you've heard of him then? Reputation killer, huh? He's alright once you get to know him-ok, ok maybe that's overselling him a bit!" She started to laugh. "Wynn...He has his ups and downs, but overall? Frittle is a good friend to have."

        "Seriously? A good friend? That guy beats people up over the simplest things." Gwen leaned back on the chair she was sitting on. 

       "Want to know how we became friends?" I shrugged. Of course I wanted to know how a brute like Wynn was friends with a girl like Gwen.
