Part 1 The Girl With Purple…Well… Everything Kia


Chapter 1/Part 1 Kia

Why does everyone keep staring at me? Oh, right, I’m the freak with purple hair, lips, and eyes. I should just get over it. I’m used to it by now, except, most people give me glares or weird looks when they see me, but the girl across from me, she’s different.

She stares at me like I’m the most beautiful thing she has seen in awhile, which doesn’t bother me, but it’s odd. She’s so distracted by me that she forgets about the book that’s in front of her.

I know this may seem strange, but I feel almost normal. I feel like I can fit in with the others, without worrying about people staring at me and calling me names. I guess I can try to block all that out if I had a friend like her. I wonder what it would be like talking to her.

It surprises me that she’s eating alone. How could that possibly be? She’s gorgeous, way prettier than the other girls. I guess we are like the same, beautiful, but in different ways.

She’s still glancing at me, not caring that she may look like a stalker, but I don’t mind. I should give her a smile, let her know it’s okay and that I don’t care if she stares. It’ll make me seem friendly. I don’t want to scare her.

I giver her a little smile and wait to see how she reacts. I hope I didn’t frighten her. Nope, I didn’t. She smiles back. I don’t feel so alone anymore. I think I found someone that I can be friends with and be myself around. A friend that sounds great. I haven’t had one in awhile.

My apologies, I haven’t introduced myself yet. I’m Kia, and as you can see, I’m an outsider. I have purple hair, lips, and eyes, that’s it, I promise. I straighten my hair because I’m not a fan of how my hair looks curly. I wear black because that goes best with purple. I’m paler than most people, heck I’m probably the whitest person you’ve ever met.

I don’t make friends easily because I’m beautiful, or should I say too beauteous. Since I’m the most beautiful person in my family and where I’m from, they’ve been jealous of me and hated me, which is why I left or rather they told me to leave.

You see, my sister, she isn’t as beautiful. I told her she was, but she didn’t believe me. My parents didn’t think she was attractive enough either. I planned on leaving, but my parents beat me to it and told me I didn’t belong with them anymore.

Therefore, as you can see, I don’t have anyone anymore. I guess I never did, but hopefully, things will change. They have to change, and this girl is the key.

I just hope I can stay long enough this time to become her friend. I’ve been running for so long; I don’t even remember where I started. After I had left, I realized my father hired people to come hunt me down and kill me.

I know what your thinking. My dad is crazy and yes that’s true. He wanted to make sure I wasn’t coming back. I was to leave my sister alone, and she would be considered the beautiful one. I was fifteen when I left. I’m nineteen now, and yes I can get away with being eighteen and a senior. That’s the thing about beauty.

You’re probably wondering why I have purple hair, eyes, and lips in the first place. Well, I was born like this, hard to believe I know, but it’s true. My sister, on the other hand, was born with blonde hair and her lips matched her hair. Her eyes were almost light blonde, but you could never really tell what color they were, which is why she wasn’t considered beautiful. My parents called her ordinary, and where I’m from, that’s not necessarily a good thing.

Everyone, where I’m from, has different colored hair, lips, and eyes. They were born with it too. Some may have colored hair, but not lips, and that’s perfectly fine, but my sister was different. She felt like the outsider, but really, she has no idea what I feel. She only cares about herself. I call her my sister so much, I almost forget to use her real name, Celest.

I’m going to stop talking about my sister and myself now. I need to figure out how to approach this girl, without putting her in danger. I’m sure by now; the people hired to kill me have already found me, which is why I need to watch my back. I don’t know if I can trust and rely on anyone, except for her.

I gaze at the girl across from me again. She closes her book and stands up from the table. She throws the rest of her apple in the trash can. Lunch must be over. What do I do? Do I follow her? If I don’t walk somewhere, I’ll be the only one left in the cafeteria. At least everyone stopped staring at me for awhile.

I wait til most of the students are out of the cafeteria and follow the girl through the hall. I try not to lose sight of her as people bump into me with their books, and of course, they don’t say anything. I mean, why would they? To them, I’m just a freak with purple hair, eyes, and lips.

I hope she doesn’t notice me following her. I feel kind of odd, but she may be my only hope to becoming normal and having someone I can trust. I have so many questions for her, and I don’t know where to begin. Maybe we can become sisters. I never really knew mine, granted she didn’t want anything to do with me.

I’d like to know her name; it would make things a lot easier. Though, it would probably be a bad idea calling out her name in front of a bunch of people I don’t know. Then I’d have people staring at me again and this time, I imagine it worse.

I can almost reach her, but just when I’m close, I get slammed so hard into a locker. That hurt and of course, I lost her. Now I have to look for her again. I feel like I’m running out of time.

I glance back down the hallway to make sure no one is following me. I breathe a sigh of relief and focus on the girl. I’m a little nervous. What do I even say when I find her and tap her shoulder? I’ve never been good at that sort of thing, especially after I first meet people. Once I know someone and feel safe with them, I’m better.

I guess I feel myself when I’m fighting someone or protecting them. I’m more focused that way. The last time I was that focused, was a month ago in Greece. I didn’t think they’d find me there, but they did. I’m not safe anywhere. I’m hoping a small town like this in Savannah Georgia with keep me here a little longer than the other places.

The bell rings, and I’m the only one standing in the hallway. I need to find her. I slowly continue to walk down the hall when I see the girl in one of her classes. I gander through the glass on the door quickly before she sees me. I guess now, I just wait. It might be awhile, but soon, I won’t be alone anymore.




The Girl With Purple…Well… Everything Part 1 Ara


Chapter 1/Part 1 Ara

I see her. She has purple lips, purple hair, and even purple eyes. Her face is pale. I know I should look away, but I can’t. Who is this girl and why does everything have to be purple? I guess the simple answer would be she’s a freak or it’s her favorite color, but that can’t be it.

I should stop staring at the girl. She’s so beautiful, almost intoxicating. I wonder what it would be like to be her friend. Why are all these crazy questions and thoughts swarming through my mind? I must be so bored that I found someone else to focus my gaze. She may not be normal, but she is someone.

I need to advert my gaze somewhere before she notices. I don’t want the girl to think I’m crazy, or a stalker, but it’s too late. She sees me staring. I must have stared too long.

She seems calm and relaxed, unlike myself, who’s shaking inside, probably acting like some scared girl ready to run. I still can’t look away, even though I’m nervous she’ll punch me or something, but she just sits there and stares right back at me, like it’s no big deal.

I don’t understand. Why is she so cool about it? Doesn’t she want to know why I’m staring and why I won’t look away? I’m sure she already knows the answer to that.

I think I see her smiling. Yes, it’s a smile. This situation has just gotten awkward. What do I do? Do I smile back or just ignore it? I should smile back. I don’t want to be rude.

I gaze around the room before deciding to smile back. That wasn’t so bad. I may be sitting here, eating alone, but I feel better. My teacher was right; one person can make someone’s day a whole lot brighter.

I take a bite into my red delicious apple and close a book that’s in front of me. Let me rewind. My name is Ara. Yes, it’s unusual, but I’ve grown to get used to it.

I have light brown/blondish, wavy hair that looks red. I guess it’s an auburn color. I can never tell these days. Some people say it’s blonde, and others say it’s reddish brown. I go with whatever mood I’m in that day. Today I’m feeling reddish brown. Yes, I know that sounds silly, but it is what it is. Many people think I’m a freshman, but I’m a junior. I do admit, I look like a freshman sometimes.

Regardless, as you can tell, I’m a loner, which is surprising. I may not have a beautiful tan, but I’m not as pale as the other girl. I also have brown eyes, and I’m gorgeous, not to brag, but I am. Maybe that’s why I always sit alone at lunch. One will never know.


Ps. (Still working on a title, but I wrote this for fun. Hope you enjoy! I love writing, but I’m also a little scared to put my stuff out there).


The Girl, The Castle and The Choice Part 4

Present Day:

Alexia is locked in a bedroom inside the castle. She keeps trying to unlock the door, but it doesn’t budge. She pounds on the door loudly and frustrated. Alexia walks over to the window to see how far down it is from the ground. It is too far to jump and climb down. She finally gives up and sits down on the bed.

After Alexia rest for awhile, she sits up and decides to search for something. She opens one of the drawers across from the bed. She finds a journal. She takes it over to the bed and starts reading it. It is her mothers, dated back fifteen years ago when Cali was fifteen.

It reads:

Dear Diary,

It’s Tuesday. September 10th, 1955. I met a wonderful man. I think I’m falling in love. The way he smiles at me, it’s like, butterflies. Tonight is going to be special. It’s going to change everything.

Alexia continues to read more.

Dear Diary,

It’s Wednesday. September 11th, 1955. He’s gone. The only man I ever loved is gone. What do I do now? My maid has a secret. I intend to find out what that secret is.

Dear Diary,

It’s Monday. February 15th, 1956. I found out a secret today. The maid kept it a secret for months. I’m pregnant. I’m alone and I’m scared. I don’t know what to do, but I’m excited. I hope it’s a girl.

Dear Diary,

It’s Thursday. June 8th, 1956. They took her away from me. I didn’t even get to hold her. My maid said it is for the best, that I made the right decision, but I didn’t make that decision. They made it for me and made me believe it was my decision.

Dear Diary,

It’s Tuesday. June 13th, 1956. I want to see her, but my maid won’t let me. I’m sixteen now and more alone than I’ve ever been, but things will change. They have to.

Dear Diary,

It’s Friday. June 16th, 1956. I did it. I finally got rid of her. She is destroying me and keeping me from my daughter. But she’s right, this is not the life I want for her, but someday, will meet again and she will be beside me once again. Ps. I never thought I’d be this alone. The guards found out about the poison and now I’ve been trapped in this room. I found a way out, but they don’t know that. Under the floor, there is a secret door that leads to a room underneath. There’s a door that can get me out of the castle and I will run as far away as I can.


Cali is in a bedroom where the guards lock her away for what she’s done. She sits on the bed and writes her last entry in her journal. She gets up and places her journal in a drawer across from the bed. Cali removes the floorboard and jumps down. She follows the staircase down and finds a door. She opens it up and runs as fast as she can, but it’s too late. The guards have found her running and capture her. She will never be able to escape the castle.

Present Day:

Alexia shuts the book, even more frightened than before, but feels sad for her mother. She was a prisoner as well and still is. Alexia rushes over to the middle of the floor by the bed. She starts banging on the floorboard as hard as she can. The floorboard falls to the ground and she carefully and quietly jumps down.

Alexia reaches down to the ground and looks around. She grabs a candle that is lit and follows steps that go further down. She finally reaches the bottom and finds a door. She opens it and starts running as fast as she can away from the castle.

Meanwhile, Cali is still in the ballroom discussing plans for the battle. “Bring Alexia out, I want to discuss something with her. I’m giving her one more chance.” Cali demands.

“Right away.” One of the guards replies. The guard runs to retrieve Alexia, but when he opens the door, he finds that she is gone.

“Oh no. Majesty isn’t going to like this.” The guard says. He races back to Cali.

“Your majesty. She’s gone. She escaped.” The guard explains.

“Find her and bring her back to me. Now!” Cali shouts. The guards go out and look for her as she’s still on the move.

Cali thinks for a moment and rushes to the bedroom where they had Alexia. She finds the floorboard is gone and her journal on the bed. Cali picks up the journal and reads the last entry, figuring out that Alexia has done the same. She realizes that she should have never brought Alexia to the castle. Like her journal said, she never wanted this for her, but only to see her once again.

Alexia, hidden in the woods decides there’s only one way to escape, one that her mother did not think of herself. She hears the guards approaching not too far away. Alexia takes a pill out of her pocket that she found in her mother’s drawer. She puts it in her mouth and begins choking.

Alexia never wanted to become her mother, but this was her only choice. She did not want to battle against the people she cared about.
She lays on the ground, cold and dead, finally ridden of her mother, even though she saw things differently through her eyes. She still believes this is the only way to save her kingdom.

The guards approach Alexia, shocked at what they have discovered.

“Someone go back, and tell the majesty what happened.” One of the guards demands.

“Yes, sir.” One of the other guards responds running back to the castle.

Cali is still in the bedroom where Alexia was, waiting for her return. One of the guards that found Alexia walks into the room.

“Did you find her?” Cali asks.

“We did, your majesty.”

“Well, where is she then?” Cali asks.

“She’s dead, your majesty.” The guard says. Cali has a sad, depressed and angry look on her face. She knew Alexia had a plan and was worried, but hopeful on finding her before it was too late. She did the exact thing she thought of many times when she left, but never succeeded.

“Your majesty-” The guard starts to say but doesn’t have a chance to finish.

“Leave me!” The guard leaves.

Cali, ashamed at what she had done to herself and her daughter, has thought of a solution that would fix everything. She walks over to the drawer slowly and opens it to find one last pill left that she saved years ago just in case. Cali picks it up and just stares at it. Her assistant walks in.

“Your majesty-, your majesty what are you doing?” She asks shocked and scared.

“Doing something I should have done a long time ago, for myself, my kingdom, and my daughter. She should have never been brought into this world. I was only teenager, a foolish teenager, hopelessly in love. I put her life in danger. I never wanted this for her, but I was blinded. I was told I was doing the right thing. Things could have been different. I could have taken care of her. I destroyed my kingdom, myself, and disgraced my parents. All I ever wanted was to be reunited with my daughter and look where that’s gotten me. I’m doing this to protect my kingdom, which I promised myself I’d do a long time ago. I’m sorry.”

Cali takes the pill and starts choking. She lays on the floor, cold and dead like her daughter. She can now rest in peace with her daughter, knowing that everything is going to be okay. She knows that nothing, even in death could make up for what she had done in the past, but she hopes to start over and forever be, the mother she hoped to be.

Cali is buried right next to her daughter, where they will be together forever.

The End

Hope you guys enjoyed my short story! 🙂


The Girl, The Castle and The Choice Part 3

The majesty’s daughter looks so much like her mother when she was a teenager. Alexia is her name. She is fifteen years old and has beautiful, long wavy hair and blue eyes just like her mother. She has no idea that her actual birth mother lives in a castle.

She doesn’t live so far away. She lives in a small town with lots of land, ten miles from the castle. What she doesn’t know is that the battle will be against her mother.

Alexia is outside with her best friend Fay. “Did you ever ask about your mother?”

“No. All I know is one thing. She gave me up and is not a very nice person.” Alexia replies.

“Are you scared?” Fay asks.

“No, of course not. I do not wish to become my mother. I will not.” Alexia explains. Suddenly, the girls hear a noise coming from the fields.

“Do you hear that?” Fay asks. Fay keeps calm while Alexia is frightened.

“I do.”

“Who do you think it is?” Fay asks looking at Alexia.

“I’m not sure, but I don’t want to find out. We need to go now!” Alexia shouts. All of sudden, Cali’s guards see both the girls.

“Over here!” The guards yell. Alexia looks up at them scared.

“Run!” Alexia tells Fay, as she does the same. Alexia runs as fast as she can to her house as the guards rush after her. She hides inside, hoping they don’t find her. The guards break down the door and search for her. They finally find her hiding behind a barrel. One of the guards kicks over the barrel and Alexia screams.

“There you are.” The guard says.

“What do you want with me?” Alexia asks scared.

“A certain woman wants you.” The guard replies, grabbing Alexia. They start heading back to the castle where Cali awaits her daughters arrival.

Alexia and the guards finally arrive at the castle. The guards bring her into the ballroom where Cali awaits. Alexia looks up at Cali afraid. She recognizes the women she’s seen in pictures. The same one her adoptive mother has given her to hold on to.

“No! It can’t be!” Alexia shouts. Cali looks at her daughter, realizing she reminds her of herself when she was a teenager.

“Alexia is it? Please, guards, let her go. I want to talk to my daughter alone.” Everyone in the ballroom leaves except for Cali and her daughter.

“Well, my-my, have you grown. How old are you now?” Cali asks.

“Fifteen!” Alexia rudely says.

“Ah, those were the years. I remember when I was fifteen, unfortunately.” Cali replies.

“What do you want?!” Alexia asks loudly.

“Is that a nice way to talk to your mother?”

“You’re not my mother!” Alexia shouts. Cali walks up to her daughter.

“Let’s get one thing straight Alexia, you’re stuck with me, whether you like it or not. I suggest you start being respectful.” Cali responds.

“Why don’t you tell me what you want with me?” Alexia asks.

“I want you to follow in my footsteps. One day, take over the kingdom and help me lead a battle. What do you say, Alexia?”

“No! I will never side with you! You’re evil! I have someone I care about very much back home, but you wouldn’t understand. You are not capable of love.” Alexia says.

“Enough! I was once in love, but it doesn’t exist Alexia. I’m doing you a favor.” Cali explains as she remembers a time she and her lover danced.

“I will not side with you,” Alexia replies angrily.

“Very well. You chose wrong. Guards!” The guards rush in. “Lock her up. Make sure she doesn’t get out.”

“Yes, your majesty.” The guards take Alexia into a bedroom. Meanwhile, Cali is still in the ballroom. She sighs.


Cali is sixteen and in the castle halls where she’s talking to her maid. Her bodyguard is with her. She’s wearing a white dress.

“Please! I demand to see her, just once.” As she falls to the floor. The maid turns around as she’s walks up the stairs.

“Enough Cali! You are not to see her. Do you understand?” Cali sobs.

“I will never understand!” Cali replies angrily.

The maid walks over to Cali. “You are doing your daughter a favor. You would never pull off being a mother Cali. I am doing you a favor. She’s better off. We will not speak of this again!” The maid continues to walk up the staircase while Cali is on the floor sobbing. Cali looks out the window to see the sun going down.

“Your right, we won’t,” Cali mumbles to herself angrily.

Soon it was nightfall. Cali figures everyone is in bed. She quietly walks up the stairs to the maid’s bedroom. She takes a pill she has in her pocket and slips it into the maid’s water. Cali picks up the water with the pill in it and carefully puts some to the maid’s mouth. Suddenly, the maid wakes up and sees Cali.

“Cali, what on earth-“She stops cold. The maid starts to choke. Cali is frightened and slowly backs up from the bed. Cali runs out the room in a hurry as the guards come quickly to see what’s going on. The guards know it is poison, but they don’t know who poisoned her.

Fifteen years later, Cali promised things would change, and they did. The castle is no longer lit, but rather, dark and gloomy. Her kingdom is once again the shade of darkness.

Cali has not thought about the child in fifteen years. She is rather focused on preparing for another battle. She does admit, she does not like what life has come down to, especially her kingdom.

Cali decides to take a walk outside the kingdom and stares outside at what it’s become. “Look at what I’ve done. What have I become?” Cali says to herself.

“Your majesty!” The maid shouts!

Cali walks back inside, pushing her doubts behind her. As she walks across the ballroom, she hears whispers from the guards.

“Would you like to share your thoughts Mr. Balswick?!”, Cali asks turning toward him.

“No ma’am.” Looking scared.

“Please do.” Cali replies.

“You are not going to like it, your majesty.”

“Amuse me.”

“It’s about the child.” The guard responds.

“Oh? And what child would that be?” Cali asks.

“Yours,” He says softly. Cali is not happy with his answer.

“Get him out of here! Now!” Cali shouts. Two men take him away. “Now, where were we?”


Cali is sixteen and in her room, staring at the window depressed. The maid walks in. “Cali, why aren’t you getting ready?”

“Why should I?” Cali asks, angry. The maid walks over to her.

“Cali, I am truly sorry, but it is the right decision. You chose right.” Walking away.

“How do you know she’s alright?” Cali turns to her maid. I want to see her.” Cali demands.

“I am sorry. You cannot. I will not allow it.” The maid leaves. Cali looks out the window again and starts sobbing.

Present Day:

Cali sits in her chair in the ballroom and thinks for a moment. “Find her and bring her to me,” Cali says.

“Find who, ma’am?” Her assistant asks.

“My daughter.”

“Right away!”



The Girl, The Castle and The Choice Part 1


At the age of fifteen, Cali meant a young handsome boy inside the castle. They had fallen in love. It was a risk for both of them, but it was a risk they were willing to take. One crazy night, Cali brought the boy into her bedroom. They had no idea what they were doing, all they knew, was that they were in love and Cali wanted to show him how much she loved him.

She kissed him ever so softly for hours, until morning. Cali woke up the next day to the sound of yelling and banging. She got herself up and raced to the window to see the love of her life running as far away as he could from the castle. It seemed as if he was being chased away. Cali cried herself to sleep for days. She stayed in her room and did not leave the castle.

A couple days went by, Cali finally picked herself up and walked to the bathroom. She looked in the mirror at herself, ashamed and disappointed. “As of today, things will change!”, she said determined.

All of sudden, Cali was screaming in pain. Her stomach hurt so bad and she felt so hungry and sick. Her maid and bodyguard rushed in. Cali was on the floor, blacked out. The bodyguard picked her up while her maid called the doctor.

As Cali lied in bed, the doctor checked her out to see what had happened. He told the maid that she was pregnant. Meanwhile, Cali had no idea what was going on. She was still a little fuzzy from blacking out. The maid thanked the doctor as she showed him the way out. The secret remained only with the maid and the bodyguard.

Five months later, Cali realized she was pregnant. The maid had kept the secret for that long. She knew who the father was. The only man she ever loved, but he was no longer in her life.

Nine months later, Cali was screaming in pain again. The baby was ready to come out. The maid and bodyguard rushed in. Cali lied in bed as the doctor came in. He safely pulled the baby out. It was a baby girl. Cali was so happy and had a smile on her face. She stared down at her beautiful baby girl and reached over to hold her, but the maid grabbed her before Cali had the chance. The maid took the baby out of the room.

“What are you doing? Where are you taking her? Please, don’t do this! No!!” Cali screamed, but nothing. She cried and cried. The maid had given the baby girl to someone else. Cali remained in bed sobbing. The maid came in and explained to her the reasoning and told her it was for the best and made her believe that this was what she wanted.

This is a short story I started writing for fun. It’s my passion and I always love writing. I hope you enjoy it. Let me know what you think! 🙂

Once upon a time, there was a little girl, Cali. She was ten years old at the time. She lived in a land, far far away, where others could not see her and she could not escape. She had long, wavy blonde hair and beautiful blue eyes. She was a sweet, kind angel, who wanted to help protect her kingdom.

After her kingdom was destroyed, her family, the people she loved, were all dead. Cali was all alone. She couldn’t believe what had happened. Her family had told her everything would change after the battle. She had no idea that her life would be completely changed forever. Cali didn’t want this, but she had no choice, she had to do something.

Cali continued to reside in the castle her family lived in, but she had made some changes, changes no one had seen coming.
