There's no time

It had been 3 years since Jacob Stone had been reported missing. It came as a shock to those who knew him best, as he was quite happy for the average 13 year old. I'm Daisy Thomas and I'm gonna tell you what actually happened to the him.

Daisy, Daniel and Christopher are mourning at their friend's funeral. But then a sinister figure emerges from the shadows of their small town. After many strange events, Daisy and her friends are soon swept up into a mystery that no one could even begin to imagine. It's not long before they realise that the clock is ticking, and for something's, there's no time...


9. Part 1 - Chapter 9

The Well was a neat little café that the girls and I use to go to hang out at the weekend. It had umbrellas up outside during the summer and coloured fairy lights in the winter. We always sat in folding metal chairs on the patio area. It had wooden frame work above it with grape vines creeping around the timber planks. We use to plan our first dates and other pointless stuff here before they went to France. Pointless as it was, it was our personal place for bonding and talking.

As I approached I saw the familiar outlines of my friends under a red and white umbrella. Annabel stood grinning and pointing at me. Lydia turned in her wicker chair to face me as well. They were both pretty. Lydia was tall and made an already short Annabel look tiny. Lydia's long light brown hair was braided back off her face. Annabel's naturally highlighted hair was left to tumble in waves on to her shoulders with a small plait. 

All 3 of us ran to meet each other for the first time in 5 years. Within seconds I was doing all the girly stuff that I hadn't done in years: jumping up and down, hugging, giggling... Etc

We sat down at the table beaming at each other. "Wow" we all said at the same time. We ordered drinks and talked for a full on hour.

Soon the conversation steered its way to boys like it always use to. I told them everything about Daniel. They squealed in the same girlish way they always use to. They really hadn't changed. Then Lydia asked the question I'd been dreading.

"How's Jacob?" Of course she didn't know. They'd kept his disappearance and death quite. I put my head down and stared at my knees.

"Jacob's dead" I said in a flat voice that didn't belong to me. Lydia and Annabel gasped.

"Oh god Daisy, sorry we didn't know"

"How'd it happen? Was he hit by a car or something?"

"Annabel! She quite clearly doesn't want to talk about it!"

"Oh yeah sorry,"

I looked up and attempted a smile. I knew it wasn't very convincing.

"It's ok, he went missing a couple of years ago. He was found dead last month. It was his funeral 2 days ago" Lydia bit her lip. Both of them still looked embarrassed about this conversation. 

They said they were really sorry. I explained it was ok and that I still had the guys. Then I said something that surprised me. 

"I have you guys now. I've really missed you. I was a real moron for blaming you for not coming to the same school as me. I'm sorry" that really wasn't like me. I wasn't one for poring my heart out. Then we where hugging again and exchanging phone numbers to make contact easier. We didn't have phones when we where in primary so we didn't have each other's numbers.


We kept seeing each other at the café for the next 2 weeks. They had to go early to Annabel's grandmas the day Daniel and Christopher came back. They said that they'd meet them tomorrow as I watched them get on the bus. Annabel's grandma lived in the next village along which was too far away to walk to. It was 4:00 and from past experience I knew the boys wouldn't be back till 7 at the earliest. Once again I was left with a lot of spare time and no way of filling it.
