Chapter 1: Aliens
My name is Amelia, I am 13. I have killed everyone who was close to me, even the people who were kind enough to take care of me 5 years ago, when I was abandoned by my own father and had nowhere to go. Not out of greed or selfishness, I was just trying to protect myself. They wanted to sell me since I am one of the few aliens that walk on Earth. In the year 2200, aliens are worth $250,000, the government wants to catch all of us for a reason not yet exposed to the public, but whatever it is it can’t be good. I had to kill them or I would have ended locked up in a cold, dark cell. I am abnormal; they don’t understand me, so they want to hide me in a cell and try to forget about me.
