Swept Away – Part 1

The sun shone down on the glass roof. Birds were chirping, leaves swayed in the breeze and airplanes soared through the air. Emma and her ‘friends’, Chloe and Charlotte, were waiting on Platform 6 for the 8:20 train. Every day, Emma would hop on the train to get to her school, Locland Academy. Emma loved school so she hated being late. On the other hand, her ‘friends’ hated school and secretly hated Emma because she would always try to persuade them to like it.

Today, the train was running late. “Where is the train?” Emma asked her friends, panicking. Their smirking faces told Emma: “Who cares about the train?” Poor Emma was oblivious to the fact that her friends were actually frauds; they were mean girls! Suddenly, as the trained chugged into the station, they shoved her past the yellow line shrieking: “Have fun, tubby!” The bullies covered their ears and stood back as the train blew past her. The gravity couldn’t hold her any longer and she shot off into the sky.
