My name is Scarlet, I left to find my mom when I was thirteen. I have been alone for three years I have a best friend named Emily she gives me food sometimes. She insists that I live with her but after the things I've done I'll be in juvie for about two years. The cops never catch me, my hair is bright red kinda hard to miss. But it's always covered in a black hood so they never see me. It's surprising that Emily's parents haven't dragged me inside the house sometimes it's so windy I have to sleep in the garage. Tonight my luck will turn I plan on stealing a jewel from my old foster parents so I better get some shut eye. So it's about midnight and I'm climbing the staircase to the Woman's room (I never learned their names) in her jewelry box is a bright blue stone worth a fortune. Quick hands grab the jewel and run simple, not I have to carefully open the box, take the jewel, carefully close it, creep down the stairs and out the door. It's taken nearly a month of planning to figure out every detail, I can't chicken out. So I grab the jewel quick as lightening close the box careful not to let it slam, creep down stairs only one stair creaked new record through the front door, and I'm outta there. I feel like celebrating but no time now I sprint to Emily's, of course she doesn't know that I steal. Before I knock on the door someone calls my name "Scarlet" "Who's there?" I ask trying to keep my voice steady. "Me idiot" the voice says "Are you kidding me Ryan I just finished a job" I say annoyed "Oh, so you think I'm trying to ruin your good mood?" Ryan asks acting offended. "Yes actually" I shoot back he wasn't expecting that one. Point one Scarlet "I win" I state "What? No I clearly win" Ryan says with a grin. "What are you thinking?" I ask "Oh nothing" Ryan answers "ha ha tell me" I say bumping his side with mine "Fine, I'll tell you, but you can't tell anyone he answers with a serious look on his face "Who would I tell, the pope?" I ask trying to lighten the mood. "hmmm, is he a friend of yours?" Ryan asks me "NO! Just tell me" I say getting annoyed."Scarlet, your parents are back" Ryan says  my smile falls "WHAT!" I scream not wanting it to be true.
