Fantasy / Action


Felix saw as his only friends were all mostly teary-eyed as the bus approached the stop. Today is the day he leaves for boot camp, then later to fight in the wars. Felix grew up with these special people, and together they created a special club. The club met in a large, hollow tree, which gave them the name, The Tree Friends. It was mostly made up of homeless children, all who have either lost their parents or ran from home to stay away from their parents. Each member was special to Felix, and he loved every single one of them.

Felix gave a hug goodbye to every friend, all of whom he's known for years and have became his close friend.

His best friend was Thomas, a young, bleach-blond haired boy who wore a yellow track suit. His girlfriend, Jessica, was a very happy girl, who laughed at everything was fond of bunnies, and to show her love for both them and Thomas, she sewed yellows ears on the hood of his track suit. The girls of the club thought he looked "cuddly", and Felix jokingly called him “Cuddles.”

Felix almost refused but, eventually, hugged his angry cousin, an orange-haired boy named Hector. Hector was always angry, but not just because; he lost his self confidence years ago when, after a freak accident, he lost his hands and became an amputee. But, after his cousin pleaded over and over, he ultimatly joined the club, where he fell in love with a young, blue-haired girl named Laura, who grew beautiful flowers alnd always kept one in her hair.

The bus turned the corner, and it started to quickly approach the bus stop.

Felix dropped his bag, then turned around, and his green emerald eyes met two ruby-colored eyes, which were barely beautiful as they were bloodshot and streaming with tears. They belonged to a young girl with rows of white snow in her blood red hair, named Felicia, who hated her real name, so she went by the name “Flaky”. Felix let out his arms, and Flaky soon ran straight into them, crying directly into his chest. They were friends for years, since he found her in an empty dumpster, alone and crying as she was beaten, bruised and nearly dead from blood loss. The two stood there, for what seemed like an eternity, with Flaky crying harder and harder as the bus stopped at the stop.

"Felix... please don't forget about me..." Flaky uttered, as she continued to hiccup because of her crying.

"Never. I'll never forget you. I'll come back soon and hug you just like this. I promise."

She looked up and stared into his eyes.

"Promise me this too. Promise me you won't cry like me. I'm not brave and strong like you, and I don't want you to prove me wrong."

"Yes. I promise."

Thomas spoke up."There's the bus."

Felix picked up his bags, and turned around. "You guys... I'll be thinking about you. And every moment will be hard without you. I love you all."

He then boarded the bus, overhearing the sobs of the girls. Especially Flaky. He sat at the back of the bus, so he can see them. The bus then took off... Flaky couldn't bare it. She took off running towards the bus, and it sped up. Faster and faster, till she soon gave up and fell to the floor. Her knees bent, horizontal to the floor, and she weeped more and more. Coming soon afterwards, her friend Thomas, who came to comfort her. He looked up and saw that Felix was still seeing them, and he waved goodbye. Felix did the same. Then, he turned around, brought his bag to his face...

And broke his promise…
