part of a prolonged series of stories following Lily Rose struggle between her two worlds.
Once there was a girl who loved her father. She adored him more than anyone else. Sadly, one day when she was eight he got into a car accident and died in the hospital. She wept and wept from day in, to day out. The only ones to stay by her side, was her two best friends; Bree and Ash (they are twin sisters). They took her in, so she wouldn't be put in an orphanage.
All that she ever thought after that unfaithful day was, "I am all alone." Although, what she didn't know was that that was not true at all.
And that is where the story begins………
I open my eyes to the sun coming through the window, in my small room on the second floor. With, cries from Bree and Ash saying "Lily! Get up!" This is how my mornings usually start off, well me being forced out of bed, and all.
Every day is the same after that day seven years ago. Wake up, go to school, come back to the house and sleep. Then I start from the beginning the next day and so on.
"Sorry," I said to Ash, "I slept in." "It's okay, don't worry about it, just get ready for school we are leaving in ten minutes," Ash says with her loving smile. She has the most beautiful smile in the world, which goes great with her bright green eyes and mixed brown hair.
Bree, on the other hand, has bright red hair with green eyes, and freckles, a lot of freckles. They say I have clear blue eye, plus beautiful long blond hair although I am sure that they exaggerated a little.
**Later that day**
"Lily, sorry we both have clubs today. So, we can't walk home with you today. Sorry” Bree says to me. "It's fine, don't worry about it,” I say back. Then I see them both walk the other way than me. I’m halfway to the house when, I look behind me, feeling like someone is following me. Then I start to walk again, I hear feet behind me. I look behind me again, just to make sure. My heart is starting to beat faster and faster. I am starting to be scared, I don't like being scared. I tell myself again "everything is okay, nothing’s wrong." But I am still scared?
I walk past a grim ally, and there was a mysteries shadow of somebody, but I couldn’t make out who it was. But, know that I looked closer I could make out three figures. They all looked like they were looking at….me. I told myself it's nothing and it was just my imagination.
Then one of them talked "are you, Lily Rose." My eyes went wide. Another said "that reaction means that it's her. Right?" One of them stepped out of the shadows saying "yes." My head is telling me to run to the house, but my legs won't work. I can't move! I'm scared! Suddenly one said, "can you please come with us." They all came out of the shadows. It was just three guys (probably doing a dare) they looked like they were my age. Weirdly, I am not scared of them anymore so I just said "no" and started to walk away.
They started to fallow me, the guy said again "please come with us" and again I said "No." Then the guy who asked me who I was, grabbed me from behind and put a cloth on my face. The last thing that I remembered was him saying "my apologies, Princess." I don't understand, is he calling me a princess that isn't right? Right? I don’t understand I'm scared. Then, everything went black.
