Chapter 1--Introduction ( Carson's life )
Ring! The school bell rang, signalling the start of freedom and the end of misery. Student dashed out of their classrooms like a horde of prisoners set free. Bolting out of school, Carson strolled towards her house. " I hate my life," Carson muttered as tears welled up in her eyes. Opening the old squeaky wooden door, Carson sighed. the house was nearly empty, it was merely just an empty fridge, an old wooden table. Sigh...
Carson sat on the chair, wondering why her father was even addicted to gambling. Her eyes fell on a piece of paper on the table, it was a paper of promise never to leave the house except school. Ever since Carson's mother disappeared a year ago, Father would say: We'll find where mum is.
Until, he became a gambler. To add salt to the wound, Carson failed to get the scholarship that day.
Willing to let the tears fall, Carson sobbed. As she did, she turned to her bird which her mother made out of alchemy and said, " You know, life sucks." She named the bird Perry and sadly it was going to turn back into stones sooner or later. Wiping her tears in sorrow, she knitted a scarf as winter was going to arrive. She reminisced about the past when her mum taught her how to sew stuff. As she looked out of the window, she spotted a girl mumbling some words, those words became blur liquid and then it became blue. The girl calmly collected the liquid in a tube. Shock was written all over Carson's face-- were her eyes playing tricks on her?
