Okay, so, I'm actually planning to rewrite (most of) this. My writing skill has gotten a LOT better and I honestly want to start over. I'm no longer accepting any OCs and definitely won't be able to write in all the ones I received when I first started. I'm sorry if that disappoints you. Here's the first chapter, redone. Also, Amie's character has changed completely and she has been replaced with a different AC character that's more similar to her old personality.

11:25 PM

Moving can be a pain.

All day, my mom bombarded me with questions to make sure I was set for my journey. Making sure I have money, clothes; all the necessities. She barely gave me enough time to finish packing my stuff. Not that it really mattered; I wanted to take a later train anyway.

I honestly wasn't sure where I was heading; I just want to get away from home. I didn't really have any particular reason for anything involving the move; I only really knew that I wanted a new start.

I walked out the door and turned on the flashlight I brought. Everyone had gone to sleep, so I had to walk to the train station. I didn't really mind, since the train station was only a few blocks away. Once I got there, I boarded the first train that came, making sure to remember to hand him my TPC. As I walked onto the train, I saw a lot of people. Most of them were sleeping, while a few who were still awake looked up in my direction, and then continued whatever they were doing before. I sat in an empty seat and looked out the window at the crescent moon.

Not one minute after I sat down, I heard a voice behind me.

"Excuse me," they said. I turned to see a dark blue cat with red eyes standing in the aisle. "Is it 11:30 PM right now?"

I checked my watch. "Yup," I answered. I should probably be asleep by now.

"Oh, good! This watch of mine, it gets thrown off really easily sometimes," He said. "I'll just sit down in the seat next to you, if you don't mind."

"Nowhere else to sit, is there? The train is completely full," I answered.

"I guess that's true," he said. "By the way, you… can I ask your name?"

"Ellie," I answered, eyes drifting toward the window.

"Oh, Ellie…? Well, that's a fantastically great name!" He replied, not seeming to notice.

"Cool, right?" I muttered distractedly.

"So, Ellie… Tell me, where are you headed today?"

I looked at the train ticket in my hand, realizing I hadn't bothered to check it before. "Willow Falls," I answered. The name sounded a bit familiar…

"Hmmmm. Willow Falls, yeah, okay… Don't think I've heard of it. I wonder where it is."

"I don't know either," I said. "I just got on the first train I saw."

"Well, I'm pretty sure I have a map somewhere… Oh, here it is! This is Willow Falls, right?"

"Hell if I know," I laughed. "Sure, why not?"

"Well Ellie, I'd better go. Why don't you take this map?"

"Uh, sure thing?" I said, surprised. Before I could ask him if he knew what town the map was from, he was already in the doorway to the next car of the train.

"I guess I have this map now…" I murmured to myself, putting the map in my bag and taking out my earbuds. As I listened to the music, I continued staring at the moon and found myself slowly drifting off to sleep…

And that's the end of the prologue. Yes, it's about as short as it used to be. Don't judge it, it's just the prologue. I'm going to put this up then write all the other chapters and put them up at the same time, so look forward to that!
