The Spirit of Autumn
My name is Autumn i'm 17 teen years old and bine in foster care all my life. I live a retarded family that adopted me I only like one of the other children her name is December,she's 4 and very sweet. But she only talk's to me nobody else not even our foster parents.Every time I try to sneek off she alway's scream's and our foster parents come and I get in trouble, but not this time. I snuck out of the king sized bed that I share with 3 other kids younger than me. When I was off the bed I put my red coat on over my clothes that I still had on with my black boots and grabed my bookbag ful of stuff. I headed to the window and opened it ( my room is on the 1st floor) then someone asked '' Where are you going?'' turned only to see December still in her clothes as well which puzzled me. I answered '' It's time I leave December im sorry.'' In stead off screaming like usual she said '' Then im going with you.'' She grabed her jacket and ran to me. I helped her out the window then I went out and closed the window. We walked all night through the woods with the beautiful autumn leaves all over. We got tired so late in the night we layed down at the bottum of the hill and slept. In the morning I woke up to foot steps so I woke up December and said '' Shh just get in that old shed over there and be quiet.'' She nodded and ran in side of it. I picked up my bag put it on my shoulder and got up. A girl came out of some trees she looked 11. She asked '' Whats a pritty person like doing in these old woods?'' Then I saw December stick her head out of the old shed to she who it was. Then I answered '' Walking, what are you doing here?'' Her facial expression changed and looked sad. She then said '' I walk through these woods to get my mind off things that are going on inside my house. I'm also trying to build up the courage to finally run away.'' I waved to December to come to me and she opened the door wide it creaked some and she ran over to me and I said '' Why dont you come with us we ran away from our foster family.'' She looked shocked so did December. She then said '' I'd love to! My name is Jessica im 12.'' I pointed to December and I and at the same time said '' she's December she's 4 and only talks to me. I'm Autumn im 17 and will take you any where. As long as you know these woods cause I dont.'' We laughed and followed Jessica out of the woods. We ended up in a city in the middle of no where. Jessica smiled as if she remembered how to get some where inparticular and said '' Come on my aunt and uncle live in this town im so glad I remember where they live!'' So we got there and her aunt and uncle screamed of excitment. We sat on the couch and Jessica's aunt and uncle said to us '' Guess what you 2! Were your real parents!'' December and I sat shocked then I said '' REALLY!?!?!?!'' They nodded and December spoke to some one else besides me '' Daddy,mommy I love you!!'' and she startedto cry so did I. We were finally reunited with our family.
