“This is not happening!” I said to myself as I was grabbing several T-shirts out of my wood carved dresser. Then I grabbed my big bag that could barely fit on my shoulders and stuffed it full of clothes and food. I passed the counter to pack a water bottle and I looked at the bills one last time, and almost walked past them, then I whirled around, dropped my bag and tore the bills in shreds, I even stepped on them and then walked off, 3 minutes after a felt guilty so I swept them up THEN got the water and everything else I needed. But, as soon as I got done, I heard a rickety old car, dropped my bags and crawled over to the only window in the house and peeked only my green eyes above the window sill, it was a pink painted car with a yellow butterfly painted on the side and under it were big white letters saying Good Day’s Orphan limo, much less a limo more like a want to be taxi. A lady then stepped out of the car, she had red hair and brown eyes and she looked like she was on her way to the circus, she wore so much makeup it looked like she was trying to be a clown. So I thought to myself for a second, “Wonder if she would make a good clown.”
“Wait! What am I thinking? I got to get out of here!” I then crawled back to my bag, I slipped a few times, then I picked it up as I ran, and went for the back door, forgetting that my grandpa’s house did not have a back door, I was thinking of my parent’s house!
“Oh, crap!” I whispered to myself, then soon enough the doorbell rang,
“Hello, Lilith is it? Yes I am Mrs. Sophie, and I am here to pick you up for the Orphan house”
“Crap!” I said,
“Lilith please open this door! I wonder if she is in there” then the door started to creek open.
“Hello, Lilith it’s all right, you will be much happier at the Orphan house, there are more kids there, and I heard from a little bird that you were alone!” said Mrs. Sophie, I thought about it for a moment, then I slid behind the counter just as she walked in, and I was still thinking about being with other kids. “No, I got to find a way to get out” I thought to myself, Mrs. Sophie started walking into the kitchen, no lights were on except for the one lamp on in the living room, so Mrs. Sophie started to turn on lights,
“No, No! Stop it lady” I whispered. Then as she started to put one foot in the kitchen I slid out the back of the kitchen, though the shoos I was wearing were loud, they then barley made a sound.
“Lilith please! We can work through this, I promise you’ll have a great time at Good Day’s” said Mrs. Sophie as she turned on the rickety chandelier in the kitchen, but then my shoes made a squeak behind the counter, Mrs. Sophie turned her head to the counter from the light,
“Oh, Lilith dear, no need to play hid and seek with me you can play that with the other kids” while Mrs. Sophie peeked behind the counter I got up tiptoed behind her and ran out the front door.
“Now where is she?” wondered Mrs. Sophie
“Oh yes!! haHA! That was the best get away ever” I hollered as I was half way down the road,
“Okay so I guess, stop to take a night off in the woods about an hour away from her I think, by that time it will be 6 o’clock or close to it, and I will roll out my sleeping bag and then start from there.”
The only thing I didn’t know then, was that I was not the only one alone, because behind me there was someone following me, or something!
