I was running. I from something. I couldnt quite see what it was.
I saw lights. They were flashing, spinning almost. I kept
thinking to myself, "if they catch us, we're done. I'm going to
jail." Why would I go to jail. I ran into a fence and on the
other side i could see the ocean. It was raining. No, it was
stormming out. The waves were crashing onto the beach
ferociously. Like they were beating the crap outta someone,
something. And i needed to get to it. I tried to climb over the
fence but it was too high. I tried and tried until my fingers
turned red and i couldnt grab the fence anymore. I had to run. I
had to get around the fence. I began to sprint to the right, but
ended up crashing into a brick wall. I turn around and see
another wall headed straight for me.
then i woke up. I sat up too quickley and my head began to spin.
While I was getting my dizziness under control, Aunt Clare came
ahe said as she walked in.
"What?" I reply.
she walked over to the foot of my bed and sat down.
mother called," she said. "She wanted to let you know that she is
okay and he will be home in a few days." My mother had been in
france for the past year and a half. She left unexpectedly. All i
heard was screaming and and then i heard the door slam. That was
it. When i woke up my mom was gone and so was all of her clothing
and suitcases. I missed her so much. And i hated her for making
me worry. She doesnt know half the amount of tears i shed,
thinking my mom was going to die on her own. But she was still my
mother. And i miss her. I needed her back.
my god, that's great!" i lean forward and attempt to give Aunt
Clare a hug, but she backs up. She looked disguted at the thougt
of hugging me right now. I look down at my bed and then i notice
finally. I was covered in dirt. My nails were encrusted with
dirt, my hair had dirt in it. It looked like i hadnt showered for
years because i lived on the streets.
