Ètienne -part one-

She wore her glasses everyday, to hide her plain eyes. She was told since she was little that she wasn't special at all. They teased her at school and she went to prom alone. Somehow they always though she was diffrent and she never fitted in anywhere.


Her name is Étienne.  She grew up in Champs Les Sims, in a small but wealthy family of four. Her father, Jean Bordeaux,  was a huge name in the business world and he owned his own nektar factory. He was very strict but fair.  Ètienns mother, Annette Bordeaux, was a housewife with class. She loved expensive clothes and jewlery. Her garden was impeccable. They got married quickly when Annette unexpectedly got pregnant. When Ètienne was born they where both disapointed to have a baby girl. They would have wanted a boy to take over the family business. Two years later little Charles arrived. They loved the baby boy and Ètienne was neglected. She could never live up to Charles. The years went by and Ètienne felt like she didn't belong in this family and on her 20th birthday she decided to move away far from where she came from. Even though Ètienne decided to leave the Bordeaux family her father wanted to make sure she had a good life, so he sent her a little starting out fund. Ètienne sat on the square in Champs Les Sims and wondered where she would go now when a tourist came up to her to ask for directions. He was one of those old men who likes to talk and he told her all about where he came from and how he ended up here. She though his home sounded wonderful and so the destination was final... she was headed to Sunset valley.


*the story begins*


She was out walking one day and ran into a person outside of the town hall. She apologized quickly and looked up in this persons face. She was beautiful. The beautiful person:  "No no! So sorry it was my fault, I was spacing out. God, can you believe my clumsyness. It's like I'm an alien or something...Hey what's your name?"

Étienne looked down to the ground when she answerd: "It's Étienne"


"Then I will call you Etti, I'm sure we will be good friends. I'm Amanda" Amanda smiled a shining big smile. Like she had no troubles in the world.


Ètienne felt akward when she walked away. Who was that awfully cheery person? Will I see her again?


About a week past, Ètienne often thought of this Amanda and she looked for her everytime she went out. But Amanda wasn't to be found. And after another few weeks Amanda where forgotten.


Ètienne liked her life in Sunset valley. She had a nice house, not to small and not to big. She had enough money to live  life happily without needing a job. Yet there where something missing. Ètienne always lived her life alone, she never had any friends and she never had been in love. Maybe that was the answer of what she was missing, Ètienne though.


Ètienne woke up late at night, around 2 am. She heard a knocking on the window. Did she just imagine it? Still tired she got out of bed and walked bearfoot to the window and looked out. There she was. Amanda with her red hair and pale skin stood right outside in the moonlight. Waiting for her, Ètienne.


Amanda: "Hey mate, time to wake up! Want to go skinny dipping at the public pool?"

Ètienne: " Wont we get in trouble?"

Amanda: "Who cares, live a little!"

Ètienne: "But..."

Amanda: "Come on Etti, lets go! Are you in or out?"


Ètienne paused and thought about it for a few seconds and finally said "Let's go". Maybe this was the start of what she was looking for...
