Chapter 1

I ran away from home. So what? It's not like my dad, or that two faced baboon, will actually miss me. James on the other side, might. But, it's not that he will actually notice, after all, he's been unconscious for over a year now.

I was lucky that, upon my arrival in New Zealand, my auntie Karmen actually understood me and let me stay with her. I ran away from home because no one there cares about me. I ran away from home, because being all alone scared me more than anything. I had friends, but I wasn't sure I could trust them either. They changed. At least here I can start anew. I graduated college when I was only 14. I am a very smart child you see, I also finished university a few months after I turned 17. But now that I'm nearly 18, I'm desperate for a job. A job in a hospital. Why in a hospital you ask? Because I have set myself a goal, a target that I must reach no matter what, and nothing will stand in my way.

My mother was a kind person. She loved us more than anyone. I never understood what she found in my dad, why she even married a man like him. Now that she's gone, and James is gradually leaving me as well, I have no one. My aunt is the closes thing I have to a family, and that is why I came to her. I may have lived in England, but that didn't stop me from coming here, in New Zealand. In fact I was happy leaving most of my memories behind. If only I could have brought James with me... That though reminded me just how much I miss him. But I came here for him, and him only.

My aunt unlocked the door to the apartment, and let me in.

"Jessica darling, are you sure you don't want to stay in the house, with us?" she asked worriedly.

"No aunt, I will be better off here, you know a little time to myself, and I don't want to disturb you anymore. You have helped me more than enough..."

"But Jess, you wouldn't be disturbing us, after all we are family. But since you insist on staying here then, I won't try to convince you anymore." she replied solemnly.

"Thank you, for everything. I don't know how to repay you, you entrust this apartment to me, and even find me a job I-" I was cut off by her bear hug.

"Oh Jess! We are family! I would do anything to help you. Remember that." She released me and kissed me on the cheek "Goodnight Jessica!" and so she left.

I put my bag on the floor and turned around to have a peek at my new home. I must admit, I love this place! The tiny, but extremely cosy, living room was 2 steps lower than the adorable kitchen! This place was so cosy, I could sleep here, but this was a 1 bedroom apartment, so I don't have to. I turned on the flat screen TV, which brought even more life to this already lively house. I skipped over to the window, and to my surprise, the view was stunning! On the other side of the road, was a small river surrounded by a lush green field, full with golden coloured trees, there was even a few benches where you can sit and stare off into space! I went into the kitchen and found 2 more doors. I skipped to them, and it probably took me over 3 minutes to decide which one to open. I decided the right one. I pushed the door opened and my jaw nearly dropped to the floor. The bedroom was just my type of room, with its warm feeling, and its white and blue theme. I squealed loudly and pushed the door to my left open. And again, my jaw dropped. This was the most amazing bathroom I had ever seen! It was quite big for the size of the apartment, but I didn't care, after all it was purple! PURPLE! I love, love, love purple!

OK, now I was too excited to sleep. It's not like I was at work tomorrow either, so I decided to have a movie night. By myself. I know it's weird, but I have no one to watch them with, no female(or male for that matter) companion to share my inner thoughts with.

I know this chapter was really boring, but please comment, I want to know what you think of my crappy story!

The picture on the right is Jessica, I find her really pretty! Don't you? ------------>

I have to admit, I am very, very bad at writing stories, even though I love to write!

(Did that even make any sense?) :D
