As Rosä lay in bed staring at the ceiling, she though back to the events of that
day. Number one. She'd kinda had a spazz attack, and her eyes had changed colour
(apparently) and number two her badge had burned her mum. She turned the little
golden circle over and over in her hands, whilst absently staring at her golden wand.
Suddenly, she turned back to the badge. She could've sworn that she'd heard a little
voice calling to her from the badge. Straining her ears in the darkness, she waited,
and listened. Nothing. Deciding it was nothing, she put the badge on the bedside
table, turned onto her side and fell asleep.
That morning, she awoke to the sound of birds singing and the smell of frying fish.
"CRAP!" what time was it? She turned and looked at the clock. 9 o' clock?!
"OH NO!!!" she thundered down the stairs and confronted her mum, who was cooking in
"MUM!!! why didn't you wake me?"
She said, in a strangely sweet voice "But why dear? Its Saturday."
"Now don't argue with me!"
"I said DON'T ARGUE WITH ME!!"
Rosä stared, what on earth was going on this morning? She ran out the room and
upstairs. Shooting into her room, she locked the door behind her. Crouching in a
corner of her room, she heard footsteps advancing to her door. All of a sudden, her
door started shaking and banging as her mum tried to break it down. Whimpering she
pressed herself still further into the corner.
BANG!! The door flew open. There stood her mother, her head tilted to one side, like
a curious child.
When she spoke, it was as if she was talking through a soda can, metallic. Unreal.
"Now, come and eat your breakfast please Rosä"
