Escape

A little story that started to form in my mind while doing English homework about the life of an orphan who felt she never belonged. My grandmother was adopted and I've always wondered what it would feel like to be in that position. Hope you like it!

Chapter 1

Running

Run, run, run. I have to go. Get away from here. Away from everything i ever loved, everything I ever cared for. until now. I can see my feet blurred beneath me, feel the tears flowing down my sodden cheeks and all the anger and grief bubbling up inside me. How could they do this? How could they be so cruel? Sadie bounds ahead of me, never tiring. I cant believe I ever trusted them. Why would they care about me? I'm just the dead weight, the extra load, the thorn in their side. I can feel my heart thumping inside me, becoming louder and louder. Bu-boom bu-boom BU-BOOM. I feel like its going to break my rib-cage and explode inside me. I wouldn't care if it did. I don't care about anything anymore. Except Sadie. My one friend in this foreign, hostile land. She is the one reason I carry on.
