Extracts from this document...


Chapter One Emily fell against the brick wall of a school building. She closed her eyes and pondered about everything that had happened that day. The sun was coming dappled through the autumn coloured oak trees, which stood around the school and carried on down the avenue. A wisp of cold wind blew Emily's soft dark brown hair across her dazzling green eyes; she brushed it away. Her two best friends were running towards her. Emily picked up her satchel up off the gravel path and ran to meet them. "I'll see you two, tomorrow", said Emily as Bethany and Megan got on the bus. "Alright", said Megan her blue eyes glittering in the autumn sun, her honey blonde hair that hung just below her shoulder blades in sleek angel curls blowing in the light autumn breeze.. All three of them had been friends since play school and become inseparable at primary school they always did everything together. " Shall I ring you up tonight so I can help you do your French Coursework? "Asked Bethany to Megan as they took their seats on the bus. The three of them had often gotten teased as they covered most of the colours in the spectrum, from Emily's dark brown hair, tanned skin and green eyes, to Megan's honey blonde hair, pale ivory skin and blue eyes right to Bethany's dusky brown skin, tight black curls and brown eyes. None of them minded, as the people who said it were quite true. ...read more.


Emily made her way gradually across the yard; she knew her step-dad wouldn't need any help milking the cows as Russell was helping him. Russell was the same age as Emily they had known each other since they were born (practically). He lived in a cottage on the farmland and he also went to the same school as Emily but his mum drove him home so he could start work on Emily's farm. Occasionally Emily would get a ride home but if the day were sunny she would walk. Green acres farm was one of five farms in the area. None of them were in competition but Mr Harrington's farm up on Moley Hill wasn't very well kept. Many a time Emily and her step-dad had chased his sheep off there land, rounded his herd of cows and fixed the wooden fence which did a very bad job of keeping the animals in. The other three farms belonged to Mr and Mrs Bunchen who owned Hawkridge farm, Mr and Mrs Fowler (their three children owned Pendleton farm and Mr Chilton and his sister owned Oaklea farm. Emily decided to feed and lock up the animals for the night. They had twenty chickens, a rooster, six piglets, one hundred and two milking cows, thirty beef cows not to mention the four horses and the fifty sheep. By the time Emily had finished feeding and locking up the animals, Russell had gone home and her dinner was about to be dished up any minute now. ...read more.


It's about time you became a little more independent", he snapped "But what about money?" said Vanessa as the shock of moving out had finally hit here. "You have a job. You'll have to budget what you spend and get a better job", he answered. "Dad I'm sorry. Please don't kick me out, please", said Vanessa "Are you really sorry?" "Yes a thousand times over, please?" "Tomorrow I want you to...apologise to Emily and then you will put the money you earn into your bank account and only but things you need or you can pack your bags and move out. The choice is yours" "I'll apologise and I'll put the money I earn into my bank account if it means I can stay here. Thanks' Dad", she said hugging him tightly. "That's alright but you were really out of order tonight and you really have to change and with the baby on the way I want you to try and make a effort with Emily". Emily made her way along the avenue, the thought of last night still fresh in her head. The morning was humid and rather beautiful with the coloured leaves falling off in the gentle wind, stroking her arms and face as they fell. "Hey Emily". Emily turned around to a face full of leaves, some of them getting caught in her brown hair, "Very funny Dale!" she snapped pulling the golden leaves out of her hair and brushing them off her sactual. "It was, wasn't it?" Dale laughed. "No, not really. What do you want?" said Emily continuing down the avenue. "Nothing, I'm just walking to school like you", he smirked ...read more.
