Hi Everybody,

In this excerpt from Book One in the VIROS series Jake meets Ellis for the first time.

I hope you enjoy the read. If you do, please feel free to leave some feedback.




I looked up. There was a smiling girl on the roof. She had curly hair.

‘Climb on top of that van and then jump across.’

I got on the van. Mr. Bishop was behind me. I started to climb. He caught me.

‘Help,’ I shouted. ‘He’s grabbed my ankle.’

‘Don’t panic. I’ll knock him down.’

I didn’t know what she meant. Something whistled past my head. Mr. Bishop roared. He let go of my ankle. He fell over. The girl had a catapult.

‘Good shot!’ I shouted.

‘I know.’

I scrambled on the roof. I stopped. There was a gap.

‘Jump,’ she said. ‘You can do it.’

I didn’t know if I could but I didn’t want to say. I didn’t know this girl. She might laugh. I jumped.

I grabbed the wall. I didn’t fall.

‘Hi!’ said the girl. ‘I’m Ellis. Welcome to my roof.’

‘Jake,’ I said.

I sat down. I was winded.

‘My name is Jake.’
