Their Fathers' Footsteps Ch16Chapter Sixteen
Shes a burnout
Making everybody scream and shout
Tearin all their hair out
Shes a super bitch
Acts like a witch
Pushes everyone in the ditch
Does it all without a hitch
She thinks shes cool
But shes a...
Without any warning Roanna's mobile phone started ringing. Roanna rolled her eyes and checked her phone: it was her dad. "Sorry guys," she apologised, taking off her guitar and propping it up against an amplifier, "I'd better answer this before my dad starts getting in a state." Amy Lee and Dion nodded and Daisy-Mae looked at her questioningly. Roanna just shrugged in reply.
"Hey Dad," Roanna answered her phone, "what's up?"
"I'm so so sorry Ro Ro" her dad replied from his end of the phone line, "Please forgive me"
"Forgive you? Why?" Roanna asked puzzled, "And why are you calling me Ro Ro? You haven't called me that since I was five apart from when something sad
Midnight Spell Chapter ThreeChapter Three
"Danny?" Sandra asked her boyfriend as she watched Andie have a conversation with the Jones' beagle puppy Polly, "Do you ever wonder about Andie?"
"Wonder about Andie?" Danny replied puzzled, looking where Sandra was looking, "I wonder about her all the time, but that's what makes her cool and my best friend. She wouldn't be the same if she was normal."
"Good point, but not exactly what I meant" Sandra smiled, "Do you ever look at her and think she has her own world that only she can go to?"
"Sort of" Danny raised his eyebrow, "Why'd you ask?"
"I wish I could go live in that world"
"You want to run away with my best friend who's a girl??"
"No silly" Sandra laughed, "I mean I... Never mind" She sighed and continued to drink her hot cocoa.
Later that night Andie was getting ready for work. She put on her bright green velvet woolen hooded dress and striped stockings and magicked on her wings. As she was putting on her flight
Midnight Spell Chapter TwoChapter Two
"They're around here somewhere" Andie giggled quietly at the sight of Danny with his rear stuck in the air as he searched through one of the boxes of decorations, "I swear the Christmas Tree lights were in here." Looking to make sure Danny or Sandra weren't watching Andie touched the tree lightly with one fingertip. Without any warning a string of glittering lights zoomed out of her finger and whirled round and round the Christmas Tree: sparkling brightly.
"Oh look Danny!" Andie spoke out loud, pretending to gasp, "They're on the tree!"
"What??" Danny lifted his head out of the box, his face all puzzled, "Where'd they come from??"
"They were on the tree the whole time"
"They were?" Danny asked puzzled, "I didn't notice them before"
"Oh ye of little faith" Andie sighed, shaking her pink head, "Don't you trust your bestest best friend in the whole entire universe?"
"Of course I do" Danny laughed, "Little Miss Weirdo"
"Hey! That's Princess Little M
Midnight Spell Chapter OneChapter One
"Andie?" Danny nudged his best friend, "Hey Andie? Wake up!" Andie sat up like a shot: her eyes wide open. "Is sleeping your favourite hobby Andz?" Danny teased lightheartedly, "Because you're al..."
"Tutankhamun became pharaoh of all Egypt when he was just nine years old" Andie interrupted him, rambling off another random historical fact, "He reigned for nine years until he was killed at the age of eighteen years old. His original name was Tutankhaten and he wrote the longest letters ever. I saw them one time when I sneaked into..."
"Andie, it's Saturday"
"We're not in school in History Class"
"No" Danny shook his head gently, "And what the hell was that all about letters??"
"Um, nothing" Andie answered him, smiling sweetly, "Nothing at all"
"Oh-kay" Danny said, his eyebrow raised, "Whatever you say Andz" Andie was being weird again, but it wasn't anything new. Ever since since he had met her
Midnight Spell ProloguePrologue
Andie crash landed inside the elf cave and dusted herself down. She had just finished tidying up her letters bag and was about to sneak to Santa's office to put the letters she'd collected in his in tray while he wasn't looking when a loud bossy annoying voice stopped her in her tracks. "Andie Cornflower Moss Brookly!" the head elf bellowed, "What is the meaning of this?"
"Um, well, you see" Andie mumbled all flustered, "I, er"
"Speak up" the head elf Emily demanded crossly, "I don't speak idiot fairy you know" Andie pouted at this outburst.
"I had after school detention" she sighed, her voice more clear now, " and extra home work. Plus Danny invited me to watch movies at his house and I forgot the time and didn't leave until nearly midnight."
"Danny?" Emily frowned, "Your human friend Danny?
"Yeah" Andie answered her, "Oh please, why can't I tell him what I really am? I can trust him, I know I can."
"You know the rules Andie"
Their Fathers' Footsteps Ch15Chapter Fifteen
"So Dais" Amy Lee asked her pink haired friend as they walked along the school playing fields the following Monday morning after the gig, "I hear you've got an admirer already?"
"Yeah" Daisy-Mae sighed and grinned goofily, "Ben Benny Ben Ben Ben"
"His name's Benjamin Thornley" Roanna explained when Amy Lee looked slightly puzzled, "He's in Daisy-Mae's art class. One of the best artistes in the class and a straight A student."
"And he's got blue hair" the pink haired drummer added in eagerly, "Don't forget the blue hair"
"Has your dad scared him away yet?"
"He's tried, but Ben still keeps ringing for me"
"I hope it works out" Amy Lee smiled, "I'd hate if you were upset Dais"
"Me? Upset?" Daisy-Mae laughed, "I'm a tough girl. I never get upset" She thumped her chest to prove her point.
"What about the time your hamster Mister Goldy died?"
"Um, well, yeah, there was that time"
"Face it Dais" Roanna said calmly, putting an arm around Daisy-Mae,
Their Fathers' Footsteps Ch14Chapter Fourteen
Harry Judd was sitting with his new adopted daughter Laurie on his knee reading her a story from a big storybook when the phone rang. "All of a sudden a lady appeared," Harry was reading with great enthusiasm to Laurie, "all bright and shining with sparkling wings like a butterfly's. Cinderella, she said, I am your fairy..." The phone rang again "Shit"
"Missa Hawwy" Laurie asked all innocently, for she was only three years old, "what's a fairyshit"
"Um, well, I'll explain it to you when you're older" Harry answered her all flustered and embarassed at his accidental swearing around a three year old, then went to pick up the phone "Hello, you have called the Judd residence. Harry Judd here. Who am I speaking to?"
"Oh crap" a male voice muttered in the background on the other end of the phone line, "It's her dad! What do I say??" Voices murmured on the other end of the phone.
"Um, hi Mister
Their Fathers' Footsteps Ch13Chapter Thirteen
Soon Saturday came along and with it Saturday Night. Backstage at Gracey's Night Spot, Headrush were a bundle of nerves. Well, one of them was at least. Two of them were cool, calm, and laid back, or at least acting like it, and the other one was bouncing around the dressing room like a hyperactive bunny on too much sugar.
"They're going to love you, you know" Tink stated bluntly as Amy Lee frowned and bit her lip, "Why else would they come?"
"What if they hate us?" Amy Lee stressed, fiddling with the strap for her guitar, "They could think we're absolute pants and demand their money back!"
"What?? No" Tink shook her small curly head, "No way! I've heard you play Amy Lee Jones and you are not, I repeat, NOT PANTS!"
Amy Lee's Dad walked in to the room. "Hey up you lot" he said cheerily, putting arm around his daughter and giving her a little squeeze, "Looking forward to your first gig?"
"Amy Lee thinks they're gonna bomb"
Their Fathers' Footsteps Ch12Chapter Twelve
"Ladies and gentlemen, you can't pass up this opportunity to see Headrush at the very first gig"
Roanna shook her head and suppressed a laugh. No sooner had Tink been told the band's new name and she was already organising flyers and handing them out to random passers by in between classes at school: the gang of sixth formers she was currently pestering being one of many. "Tink?" the tall blonde girl asked, getting Tink's attention before she moved on to her next victim, "When exactly are we going to play this so called gig? After all, what's the point in a Headrush gig when the band itself doesn't even know when it is"
"Ro, have I ever steered you guys wrong?" Roanna shook her head, "It's this Saturday"
"Chill Ro" the small curly haired said, making calming hand gestures at the temporarily shocked rhythm guitarist, "Chiiiiiiiiilllllll"
"I am chilled Tink" Roanna said, rolling her eyes, "Amy Lee on the other hand isn't going to be pl
