Behind these Broken Bars

Chapters:   1 2 3 4 5 6 ... 12 Next »


As far back as I remember it was just my aunt Lucie and I. She was an artist and did well by it. Many museums around the world wanted her pieces. We traveled a lot, rarely staying in one country or place for more than a month. So, from the time I was five she home schooled me. We had classes in the South American jungles, cities in Europe and villages in Asia. We traveled the world together, and it was perfect.
But, when I turned fourteen Lucie decided it would be better to settle down. It was then that I found out why my parents had disappeared and I was entrusted into the care of my mother’s sister. They were not dead like I had assumed, but in prison with a ten year sentence, staying behind bars in New York. They had thrown away their lives before I had gotten to know them well, before I could grow up. But ten years is a set amount of time, And my spell with my wonderful aunt Lucie was running out. They wanted me back.
