Hi, this is my first story and I am 12 years old, so it might not be that good. I hope you like it! By the way, the title has probably not got anything to do with the story, but I had know clue what to call the story now at the beginning.

Chapter 1:

April 10th, 2017

Pauline Ariel Lenoir's parents Marthe and Emeric had died in an accident on June 18, 2016. Marthe had been pregnant at the time. The baby was declared dead too.

After her parents' deaths Pauline had lived with her maternal grandma Heléne for about three months until Heléne wasn't able to take care of her anymore. During that time Pauline had greatly improved her German, since Hélene had lived in Germany for quite a few years. Heléne was still alive, but was reckoned to die soon, and she lived quite far from Pauline's care home, which was her second. Pauline's parents had had no siblings that could have taken care of her. Her father's parents had died before her birth. Marthe's father Clemens had passed away when Pauline was five.

Pauline was now eight years old. She was considered pretty by others. She had creamy light brown straight hair and eyes in a very similar color, she was slim with a round chin and a rosy oval face and she had a slight french accent. She was quite smart, which meant she always got bored in class. Her main strength was languages. She could speak French and English fluently and spoke a fair amount of German and Japanese. She was also able to speak Dutch, though not as well as German.

Exited to finish her book, she ran up the stairs to the room she shared with Scarlett, an eleven year-old who had been put into the care home by child services because of domestic violence.

Pauline opened the door and threw her bag onto her bed, but realised quickly that the girl standing in the room was not Scarlett. It was a girl with dark brown curls who looked about nine years old.

The girl jumped in surprise. Pauline asked loudly: "Who are you?"

The girl answered a little angrily: "Hey! You scared me!"

Pauline apologised to her and the girl answered:"My name is Holly Knight.", she said, before adding:"You must be Pauline."

"Yes. What are you doing here?"

"Scarlett is going back to her family tonight, so I'm helping her pack, since I'll be moving in here tomorrow. Scarlett is downstairs at the moment."

A few minutes later Scarlett came back. The three of them finished packing and cleaning up. At last the time came to say goodbye.


Should Holly later be her friend? Should Pauline meet her future boyfriend during her basic training? Please tell me!

Thanks! See you soon
