Author's Chapter Notes:
So this is the first story i've posted on here. Basically the first chapter is just to introduce my character and her ties to Santa Carla. Hope you enjoy
The scenery passed by as she looked out the bus window. Tamia wasn’t one for running, but this time she really didn’t have a choice. Sick and tired of the cuts and bruises, she packed up her things and headed to Santa Carla. It had been so long since she had last seen her aunty and cousins and this made for a perfect excuse to leave. Tamia didn’t take long dwelling on the thought, she quickly fixed her mind on where she would stay. Her grand fathers place was always open to her, but he had rules, something she despised.

She took in a breath and released a sigh as she turned her head to gaze out the opposite window. The beach came into view and she smiled faintly. The beach is what Tamia always considered her home. The smell and light spray of the ocean when your standing on the rocks, or the feel of your feet in the cool sand by the waters edge. She liked these memories, memories of her childhood.

As the bus pulled into the depot Tamia stood up, grabbed her bag and headed down the aisle. She walked to the side of the bus and grabbed her suitcase from the compartments below the bus, then made her way to the side of the road to wait for a taxi. When she finally caught one, Tamia gave the address of her grand fathers place to the driver and off they went.

“Tamia Danvers?! Is that really you Missy?” her grand father was standing out on the veranda as her taxi pulled up. She gave the driver her money and raced out of the car and into her grand fathers arms.

“Grandpa!” she shouted as he gave her his famous bear hug.

“Goodness girly, what are you doing here?” he asked as he took a step back and held her at arms length.

“Well I’m off school for a few months and thought I’d come and visit.”

Her grand father smiled at her and helped her inside. The house was same as always. Stuffed animals all over the place, he had the whole middle-of-nowhere lodge thing going on. Tamia liked it for some reason.

“Tamz?” she heard a familiar voice. Turning around she saw her little cousin standing at the top of the stairs.

“Hey Sammy. How’s it been?” he raced down the stairs towards her and she gave him a hug.

“It’s been eventful.” was all he said, although the smile on his face was a forced one.

Sam and grandpa helped carry her bag upstairs and get settled into her room. They told her that Lucy and Michael would probably be back soon and then left her to unpack. Tamia watched as her grandpa and cousin left the room before she unzipped her bag and began to put things away. After she was settled she took some clothes into the bathroom and had a cold shower.

Drying off, she glanced in the mirror. There was a trace of a bruise on her ribs and she touched it lightly. She quickly diverted her train of thought as she admired the look of her copper skin. She lived in Laguna and soaked up the sun whenever she could. Her hair was jet black with a light wave through it, sitting just above her elbows. Tamia let her eyes rest on her face lastly. She had a perfect heart-shaped face. Her eyes were usually a vibrant emerald green, however over the last few months they had begun to seem almost hollow, loosing the glow they once had. She sighed as she looked into her own eyes. All she could see was her father staring back at her, he had the same emerald eyes.

She pulled on her white skirt that stoped just before her knees and pulled on a yellow singlet. Tamia made her way out of the bathroom and downstairs into the kitchen.

“Aunty Lucy!” she said as she wrapped her arms around her. Aunty Lucy was her dads big sister. She was loving, caring and extremely devoted to her family. Tamia could see that her recent divorce had taken a toll on her aunty, it wasn’t fair.

“Oh my goodness. You’ve grown so much, I can’t believe it.” she said, smiling fondly at her. Tamia smiled back before asking.

“Where’s Mike?”

“Oh he comes and goes. Hard to keep track of him these days.” she smiled again, although this time the smile never made it to her eyes.

The four of them made their way into the living room and talked for a couple of hours. Mainly about school, work, holidays, friends and what the family has been up to. Tamia heard a rumbling noise outside and as she looked up, Mike walked through the door.

Following Mike was girl with crazy brown hair. She stood at the bottom of their stairs and smiled at everyone, while four others stood outside. Mike stopped midway up the stairs and looked at Tamia.

“Hey you.” she said as Mike stayed in place on the stairs.

“Hey. I didn’t know you were coming to Santa Carla.” he replied glancing at the boys outside then back at Tamia.

“Yeah, well, I thought I’d come and visit.” Tamia noticed the nervous look he had before he continued up the stairs. She glanced back at the female who’d walked in with him, she had the same look on her face. Finally she glanced back at the front door to see the four boys all smirking at her.

Tamia wasn’t one for being eyed off like a piece of meat by bikers, but then again these bikers had something to them. The platinum blonde boy smirked at her while the others smirked among themselves. She looked away and refused to look back at them.
