I've just read this story and it's so flippin good! I doubt anyone would understand it unless they watched Beyblade so I won't put the link up in case i get bombarded with questions...which I highly doubt but still..
My Favourite Part from it
... "It never happened. Finally, I decided to try to get my life back on track, I picked up a few jobs. I worked for the rich, in cafes, in orphanages, as a kitchenhand... I think I’ve worked as everything." She felt feelings and memories resurfacing that he had hidden for years. "I saw a lot of things I will never be able to forget. Every night, I used to look up at the sky, at the stars and think they are watching the same stars, and memories of everyone that I left behind would flash through my mind, like an old movie.ing at the sky, a little voice would tell me in the back of my head it’s going to Sometimes when I was look be better tomorrow..." She trailed off; watching the whirling images of people so long forgotten in places long since last visited.
"What did you see?" He asked, eyes still closed, forcing her to slow the whirling images and focus on them, to see the detail in each one.
"Starving children in the streets, with faces that tore at your heart, rape survivors who used to cry themselves to sleep each night. Pale teenagers looking for their next hit. Teenagers with gray hair and wrinkles, which look years older than they are, so weathered and worn, just waiting for their day to die their pain etched on their face. Pain that would never be washed away, no matter how hard they tried... Every now and again, the tiny thought would cross my mind... everything will look better tomorrow..."
"Why weren't you one of those people? I see no pain etched on your face."
"That's because it's etched inside, where no one can see it... On the streets, I quickly learnt how to nick food without losing my hand. When I was about 13 or 14 I started to get better jobs, because I was older and stronger. As I worked my way around, after leaving everything, I met a lot of people and saw a lot of things I would never had seen had I never left. Some brilliant things, marvelous beautiful things, and some awful things... terrible things that I hope no one else has to see. I hated being so secluded, and then having to beg for food on the streets, and now that I’ve seen the third way of living, I’m not in a hurry to go back to either way." she took her hand off him and stared out the window. He looked up to see why she had stopped, and saw her sitting and staring at the window, near tears as memories flashed past her eyes, unshed tears for far away people. He sat up and put his arm around her shoulder and pulled her into a hug. He felt a wet drop on his shoulder. He looked at her and saw a wet streak down her cheek.
"Kitten? Are you OK?" he whispered in her ear. "Kitten? Snap out of it." She looked at him, her eyes unfocussed.
"Then I met this girl, Leo. She was running from one family and looking for another. She told me every night that tomorrow would look better. Before she left, she gave me a phone number. She told me to ring them and they’d help me get my life back on track..."
He shook her until he focused back on her. "And one day, tomorrow did look better didn’t it?" he whispered.
I don't know why I like that bit so much... I'll think about it.
I always think of the stars as the playground of the dead
Kinda makes you think..don't you think?
Okay. Enough of that. SATs are next week and I need to REVISE!!! Anyone got any good sites apart from ReviseWise and BiteSize?
