The World Around Us
By Gracie Head
The world is spinning and i'm in the middle of it. My name is Snow and I'm fourteen and the world has stopped spinning around me. I always thought that the world revolved around me but it soon became clear that it did not. I'm on my own, depressed in the world where no one cares, stuck in the foster system with no way out. The only thing I have from my parents a letter and my name. I have spent the last ten years bouncing from home to home, waiting for my mom and dad to come get me like they said they would in the letter. I'm starting to lose hope and don't know if there is even anyone answering my prayers. I started losing my hope and faith! So I decided to run away to find them before they're too far gone; searching for my faith and hope in the blackness of the night. I didn't have any money,food, water, or parents. As I stepped out onto the streets of New York  with the bright, but not bright enough to shine into my future, light of day, I know that I need to make a plan  . I knew when I ran away I would be chased by the cops but I also knew I had twenty-four hours to get as far away as I could. I started by going to the bank. Before I walked in front of the camera of the ATM machine I took my bag and covered the camera making sure that it didn't see me and hacked the machine. I got about two grand out before I saw the blue lights. After I took off, I lost my shoe, heading for the woods. Trying my best I head down in the dirt and was hiding for about three hours. The lights disappeared and so did I. I want straight to the airport and bought a ticket for down south, the last place I remember being before I was in the foster system.  As I sat on the plane staring out the window, scared that I was going to get caught for running away and stealing that two grand.  I knew I was going to get cought just didn't know when. After about two hours passed the plane landed in Atlanta, GA. I will be leaving the airport in a taxa and heading to a train station to head up to the Blood Mountain where my aunt lives, or where I last remember my living. As I waited for a taxa I looked at my phone and seen I had reseved text from my best guy friend saying, I thought we were going to run away togeather and the cops are after you they came asking me qustions about you and I wouldn't say anything they also said they think you robed a bank about an hour after you ran away is all of this ture? If it is you can tell me I won't tell no one and i'll come find you and help you! PLZZZZ txt back love you..... I thought about texting him back but for right now I think it will be better to wait and call him from a bunner phone so if he is helping the cops they can't trace it to me. After the text and all that I looked up and seen a taxa waiting for me to get in so I jumped in and said,"The closest tain station here." After telling the man that I looked back down at my phone to see another text from Jake,Plzz I know you seen my last txt!!!! Plzzzzz txt me back we were suppost to go though this together you can't leave me hanging like this we are like borther and sister we have been though so much together.... I wanted to answer him so bad but I couldn't not yet, not this soon. Before I could think about it anymore the werid taxa man turnd around and said,"29 bucks miss and reached out his hand waiting for the money I handed him one ten and a twenty telling him to keep the change as a tip. Getting out and shuting the door looking down walking slowly to the staition to purches a ticket I hurd the news, I looked up scrowing my surroundings looking for the t.v. and found it.   I wasn't on the news but I might be on it soon so I thought to myself that I better hurry. I bought my ticket and headed for the train platform. After I bought my ticket I sat outside on the train platform waiting for train 12 up to another train station up near Blood Mountain. Its about 2:00 AM and the train still is not here the lady at the front of the train station says it will still be about another 2 hours before the train is to be here. As I sat waiting for the train I resived another text from Jake saying, sis plz anwser my txt or barrow someones phone or something im all by myself... and i wont tell anyone i just need to make sure ur ok... PLZZZZ. I thought to myself and rememerd seeing a payphone inside the train station when I was walking in.
