Night came quicker then she expected. She sat there on the cold, hard ground wondering what she did to deserve this. Warm tears started to pool in her eyelids, but she bit her tongue to keep them in. She closed her heavy eyelids, and began to think about everything that had happened that day. 

Just that morning she screamed at her mom, for some silly little thing, that now doesn’t even matter. “I hate you!” she remembered those three last words she had said to her mother. She hated herself for those words. No, she hated herself for everything.

 Finally she couldn’t handle it anymore. She let the tears roll out of her eyes, and cried herself to sleep. Sleeping was worse than being awake. She dreamed of that day before. Of the school’s counselor telling her the news. And then she simply woke up. She could taste the blood in her mouth, from the gnawing on her cheek, trying to escape this thing she called life. 

She could have stayed. She didn’t need to run away, and she knew that. She did anyways. After she finished telling the counselor that she was okay, and that she knew everything was going to be okay, she got her coat. Then she ran. She ran and she ran and she ran.

 She knew they were looking for her, but she didn’t want to be found. She didn’t want to go live with one of her Aunts or Uncles that didn't really care about her, that never bothered to get to know her. She didn’t want to be someone they were just stuck with. She didn’t want to face the fact that she wouldn’t be going home to her parents. 

She laid there in a tight ball, hugging her knees like they were her only precious thing she had. Well, they were. Her legs were weak from the hours of running. Her face was white with fear, and her eyes red from all the crying. Her teeth chattered, and her whole body shook. All night she had been drifting painfully in and out of sleep.

She finally saw the sun beginning to rise, after what seemed like days. She started to sit up, but ell back in exhaustion. She forced herself up again, but this time slower, She rose to her wobbly feet, and took in her surroundings. The little town that she thought was safe just the day before seemed anything from that now. She wondered if the distance she ran was far enough. She decided to keep walking, the farther the better.


The End
