Chapter 1 My New Car

Disclaimer: I own nothing but the plot and the made up characters

Please R&R I appreciate you taking your time to read my story and to review it.

My name is Ellie but my friends call me Ell. Well that is my former friends. Ever since that one fateful day I now no longer have any friends and I have left my house to hopefully find someone who can help me with my new problem.

That fateful day being my 16th birthday which was the day I got my new car, license, and something else that I wasn't expecting. It was 9 am when I woke up on June 19th. My room was still dark as it always was because of it décor. All around my room three main colors show up; black, purple, and blood red. Those three colors are my favorite I even dyed my shoulder length hair black with purple and red streaks in it. Some people may consider me a Goth but I'm truly not I just love to express my individuality and I wear whatever is comfortable at the moment. That usually consists of baggy pants and a kind of tight shirt showing off one of my favorite bands that I listen to. Ok any ways on to the story. I quickly got dressed in my Evanescence shirt and pants to match and hurriedly went downstairs to find my mother so I could go see my new car.

"Morning mom, when do I get to see my car? What color is it? Are we leaving to go to the driving school soon?" I asked all in one breath as I walked into the kitchen.

Like usual my mom was already finishing her breakfast and with my entrance she looked up and smiled at me.

"Morning honey, how bout you eat breakfast first then we will go see your car and once your sister is awake and dressed we will go into town."

Urgh.. I hate it when she calls me honey.

"Mom you know I'm too excited about my test to eat any thing and why does she have to tag along you know she will just sit there the whole time.

"For one you still should eat but I'm not going to make you and two you father has to work and wont be home till later tonight so she has to come."

"Ok whatever…hurry up please so we can go, I wanna see my car."

I was kind of pouting when I said that hoping that it would make things go faster so I could see my car sooner. She just sat there and shook her head at me and laughed.

"Ok go wake up your sister while I clean up and then we will head out."


I ran up the stairs to the room at the end of the hallway. My sister always has a note taped to her door for us to read and as I read this one I silently laughed to myself because it said I was not permitted to enter. I don't know how it happened but me and my sister are complete opposites. When it comes to favorite colors she loves pink but I only like the darker colors and she is usually always bouncy and ready for the day well unless she has to spend it with me. I'm usually calm and I may get excited but it usually doesn't show too much. By age we are only a year apart but it really seems more like a world.

I knocked loudly on her door so maybe she would hear me and wake up quickly. I'm amazed because sometimes she can sleep so hard that we can't wake her up it just matters how tired she is when she goes to bed.

"Come on Alysa Wake up we need to get going."

The only response I heard was some moving around and some mumbling.

"Alysa if you don't wake up right now I am going to call Ronnie and tell him about your crush!"

Ronnie is the boy who she has had a crush on for a while now he lived right down the road from us. His older brother used to live with him but for some reason he was sent to boarding school or something, no one really talks about him any more. Suddenly her bedroom door is yanked up and in its place is Alysa wearing the only color I can't stand, Pink.

"Don't you even think about it! I'm already up g's cant you wait five fricking minutes?!"

"Nope now come on so we can go see my car."

We met our mom out side the garage door. She was smiling at me with the garage opener in her hand.

"Come on mom open the door."

"Ok, ok." She replied laughing

Slowly the door opens revealing my mom's Black jag with my new purple corvette with a soft top next to it.

"OMG! I can't believe you got me the corvette, I Love It."

My mom was watching me and laughing as I checked out my car and Alysa just sat there and rolled her eyes. I don't see why she has to be like that around me.

"Hey honey do you want the keys?" My mom called to me.

"Of course I do, everyone climb in. Thank You, Thank You!"

We all climbed into the car and I automatically put the top down. I just can't resist having the wind blowing through my hair.

"Hey Ell there's one more gift in the glove compartment."

"Hmm. What else did you get me?"

I opened the door and pulled out what was in it. The present ended up being the three new cd's I have wanted to get. Greenday, Sugarcult, and Popa Raoch

"Woo Hoo, Finally I have their new ones thank you soo much mom!"

"You are welcomed, now how bout we crank some tunage and get the show on the road."

"Sounds like a good idea to me"

I put in greenday so I could listen to Boulevard of broken dreams and quickly pulled out of the garage.

"Oh brother." Was all my sister had to say along the way as me and my mom started to sing our heads off.

I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's home to me and I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
and I'm the only one and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk a...

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone...
