I went to the nearest bus stop and rode until they said I had to get off. “Damn it, my mom is such a bitch!” I stumbled upon something shining in the light of lightpost. I picked it up and saw it was just a stupid quarter. I looked up and saw a fountain in the middle of a park. I walked up to the fountain. I closed my eyes and wished for a better life. I flipped the quater in the water and began to walk away… only staring at the ground. I heard beeps but I was so zoned out that I didn’t hear them. I finally realized what I was doing until it happened…
I heard the loud beep of a truck. I was inches away from being hit. Then I was pushed out of the way. I hit the ground hard. “What the hell just happened?!” I cursed at the wind expecting for a response. “Umm I just saved your life. Uh duh,” I turned around to see a girl dressed in a leather jacket, black skinnies and a pink panther shirt. “Hi, my name is Lliyaa. Your name please?” She reached out her hand. “My name is Kiara.” I finished the greeting with a hand shake. We walked back over to the park. We sat down on one of the park benches. “Umm so what brings you here?” Lliyaa asked me. “Well, it’s a long story and I don’t need someone telling me I crazy because I already know I am.”
"Well, you can’t be that crazy. I ran away from home two years ago." I looked at her with hope. "Huh that’s funny. My mom just kicked me out the house." We laughed at the irony of our lives. "Why’d you runaway?" I just wanted to know out of curiousity. If she got offended… Oh well. "Well, I’ve been living in foster care all my life and I couldn’t take it anymore. So I ran away to be with my boyfriend and his family. They’re very accepting people coincidentally." She gave me a "not bad" face. In the back of my mind I felt sympathy for her, but to runaway for a boy??? Well I can’t judge…
Because I’m doing the same???
Anyways, she took me to her place and let me stay the night. Lliyaa was a sweet heart and so was the family she was staying with. They say don’t take kindness as a weakness, but I could use Lliyaa and her “family” to my advantage… but how to do that?
Sorry this chap is so short but I just wanted you guys to see Kiara’s point of view and get ideas about was about to happen next.
