was a happy sunny day. Hell who am I kidding?! For me it was a sad
sunny day just like any other day.
name is Maggie; I'm 16 years old with black hair and violet eyes.
Yea you heard me right, violet eyes. Otherwise known as the witch
eyes to my abusive mother. You might be thinking this chick is
crazy, but honestly no I'm really not, or at least I didn't think I
mom and I lived in on an ackridge in the middle of the forest, it
was pretty nice to just sit up in trees and bathe in the sun, trust
me I would know. Then again I didn't know much, all the stuff I
have ever learned was from either T.V or internet. What about
school? Well I didn't go there. My mom thought school was a waste
of time and my dad wasn't here. Since we lived in the middle of the
forest my mom thought no one would notice. Unfortunately for me she
was right, no one has noticed. As for my dad, well he's the one
that wanted to move out here. Funny thing is he left as soon as we
were moved in. So I'm stuck with my abusive mother, named Lissa,
for the rest of my boring life. Or so I thought.
Today I didn't feel like watching T.V or
going on the computer, I just felt like chilling, and try to get
away from the hag for the rest of the day. The hag was my mom fyi.
My restful peace was soon disturbed however by the hag's
"Maggie?! Where the hell are you?!" I
groaned and rolled my eyes in annoyance.
"Up here!" I called as I started to climb
down. Soon I jumped to the ground only to be slapped across the
face by the hag.
"What is the matter with you, you stupid
witch! How many times do I have to tell you to stop climbing
trees?! you stupid girl!" She walked away muttering, before she
entered the house she called over her shoulder, "There's laundry
for you!" Then simply walked back into the house. I simply rolled
my eyes. I guess I was used to the abuse.
"She must have been dropped on her head as a
kid." I said and laughed at my own thinking.
Within five minutes I was in my small cozy
room. I didn't mind though I like small cozy places. My room was
pretty simple; my dearest mother didn't like to spend money on me.
It had a light blue colour on the walls with a bed and a dresser.
The only bonus about it was my beloved radio. I loved music and
luckily for me this radio got awesome reception. Even in the

on. I started to sing along quietly. Sometimes I wish I had someone
like that by I wouldn't wish this misery upon anyone, by misery I
mean my life. I sigh and shrug to myself. When I'm in the middle of
the song a tapping starts from my window making me jump. I
cautiously look over to the window to see the weirdest sight in my
life. There on the other side of my window is a moose knocking at
my window with his antlers.

anything. Hey, you can never be too cautious.
must be going insane I finally decide. I slowly walk over to the
window. I have no idea why but I feel like I should talk to
"Oh my god, can you take any longer?! The
window is not that far away you know." The moose just talked! What
"Did you just----?" I stopped where I was
before going any closer. "Okay I'm going insane."
"No you're not." It talked
"Yes I am, considering moose's aren't
supposed to talk! How the heck you do you explain that?!" If I
wasn't so scared I would be rather smug.
"You know talking would be so much easier if
you opened the damn window!"
"Yes because I'm totally going to open a
window for a moose that could have rabies!" I said with heavy
don't have rabies!" Wow the moose actually sounded
"How do I know that?" I asked.
"Oh my God! Open the damn window before I
use the god damn front door!" He was practically bursting with
anger, it was actually quite amusing.
"Wow calm down!" I said before going over to
open the window. "This better be good."
"Well considering a moose is at your window
talking to you then it must be! Honestly you humans are so
"Are you going to get to the point or do I
need to get a shotgun?" I asked with anger in my
"Calm down. Ok so I'm basically here to let
you have a choice." It paused looking for a reaction.
"What is this choice exactly? What do I call
you? I mean do you have a name?" I asked, I must admit I was tired
of calling him moose.
"Ummm I suppose you can call me Andy? So the
choice is do you want to stay here or go where you father went?" I
"My father?" I echoed. "Why is this just
happening? I'm 16?! Why couldn't I leave earlier?!" I said
"Only at the age of 16 or higher can a human
"Come where? Why doesn't my stupid father
that left me with an abusive mother I might add, come get me
himself?" I asked now sceptical of this whole
"If you give him a chance to explain you
could find out." He said. Andy knew he was leaving me with no
choice if I wanted to see my father.
"What if I don't like it there? Can I come
"Alright." I sighed heavily. "Might as well
go with the moose named Andy." I almost burst out
"It's not very nice to laugh at people."
Andy said as he turned around.
"Where are you going?! I thought you were
going to take me 'there'."
am I'm simply turning around so you can get on my back." Andy said
in a 'duh' voice.
"You back. I'm not exactly light you
"Yes, I don't know if you've noticed but I'm
a moose." Another 'duh' voice.
"Stupid moose." I muttered and got on his
back. As soon as I got on he broke into a trot. My freedom was
short lived however by a horrible voice. The hag.
"Where the hell are you going?!" I looked
behind me to see her raise a shotgun.
"She has a gun." I warned to
"Just Watch." I turned back to follow his
orders. Soon a red fox broke out of the woods. To my utter
astonishment its thin graceful body leaped up and snatched the gun
out of the hag's hands.
"Is that a friend of yours?" I asked as the
fox ran to catch up with us, dropping the gun on the ground in the
"You can say that." He said with an emotion
in his voice that I couldn't identify.
Soon the sleek red fox caught up to us. "Aww
so you must be Maggie." I was even more astonished to hear it had a
woman's voice. "I'm surprised Andy didn't scare you away." It
do not scare people away!" Andy protested. "I didn't scare you
"You almost did Andy." She said with a
teasing tone in her voice. Andy just turned his head away and
"Who are you?" I asked
"My name is Scarlet, Scar for

"In time you will find out my dear." With
that she raced ahead to lead Andy and me to the
