Skye Belle was just like any other twelve year old girl. Almost.
Naturally she was excited that she was twelve – after all, that was so much older than being eleven. She enjoyed being outside and playing sports with her friends, especially netball. And she loved most of the other things that girls her age enjoyed doing, like playing games, helping her mum with the cooking, and playing on her iPad. There was nothing out of the ordinary in any of those things.
At school Skye was just like everyone else her age too. She studied hard and did her best. In fact she often came first in all of her subjects. Not everyone can come first in their class, of course, but there’s nothing unusual about being smart.
Even Skye’s family was fairly normal. She had one brother, Brandon, who was ten. Being a little bit younger than her, Brandon could be a pain sometimes. He didn’t always understand everything that Skye said and that frustrated her. Not to mention the pranks that he liked to play on her – boys could be so silly at times. But in between the occasional argument and fit of anger, they would still play and laugh together. In fact, despite their differences, they were the best of friends.
Skye’s parents were always quite busy with their work but they would still make time each day to spend with Skye and her brother. Her parents were obviously pleased with how well she did at school, but they would have been proud of her even if she failed her subjects, so long as she tried her best. Skye knew that her mum and dad loved her very much.
