Inevitable - Chapter One

"Wait! Don't leave yet!" he says.

How did he know I was going to leave? I turned around to face the boy I've seen so much the past two months. I gulped, hard. I know I have to leave him behind.

"Why won't you take me with you? I know I'll be helpful! We can start a life together!"

It's now or never, my brain thought. Am I really supposed to put my love life before my family? "I'm sorry, Bran." I whispered through my hair. Then I turned and ran.


I heard my name being screamed into the air. Oh, no! I widened my eyes. It has to be Rae. I turned my head to look for Rae, but the next thing I knew, I was facing the dirt road.

"Are you alright?" the sweet, little innocent voice of my younger sister asks, reminding me of all the times I spent with her in our small little village, Feyton.

Tears whelmed into my eyes.

"Are you seriously crying like a little girl, Elle? Even I don't do that anymore! Tsk. Tsk. Tsk. Oh, Arabelle." Rae says, shaking her head with a sigh.

Rae's acting brings smiles to my lips, but reality instantly goes through my mind again.

"Listen, Rae. Tell mom I'm going somewhere and it's going to be a while before I go back home."

"Where are you going? I want to go too!"

A solemn smile flashes across my lips. "Rae, just do what I say okay? And tell mom I'll send letters explaining."


"It's getting dark, Reina. Go home before mom worries."

Before Rae could say anything, I stood up, leaving my sister on the road and sprinted towards the gate that leads to the main road. I've got minutes before the gate closes for the night.

Quickly, I checked my pockets for all the belongings I'm bringing along. The stack of cash?

Yep. It will last at least a month in the city, enough time for me to find a job. That is, if I don't get robbed along the road.

Dad's watch?

Yep. Mom's going to hate me for it, but I need a reminder of home and especially Dad.

And lastly, my heart. I knew I couldn't focus with my heart still half at home With a firm nod, I sprinted to the gate and slipped out towards the dark road of my new life.

~ So that's it for now!
