I sat on my bed, looking around my dim room. The time on my big glow-in-the-dark wall clock said 11:21. My suitcase was packed and I wore my black leather jacket. My mom was asleep, her boyfriend had gone home late, and I had had to wait till he'd left before I could get out of here.
I pulled on my shoes, tied 'em and stood up. Time to go. I didnt bother opening my door. I just climbed down the fire escape out my window. Jump over the wall separating the courtyard below from the rest of the city and bang. I was out of there.
I took a left, suitcase in hand and headed for the subway, which would take me to the train station.
