Escaping Humanity

Kris is a 15 year old girl who lives in London. She feels empty, like something is missing from her life. She hates the bustle of the streets, the endless noise, the cars and the polluted air. So when her step-mother and father go on holiday to america, leaving her to care for her annoying step-brother, she takes her home and her life, into her own hands...


2. Oh yeah blame it on me

"Kris!!!" Says my step-mother "Why did you break the mop handle?" you see? everything gets blamed on me "Oh Yeah!" I say "Blame it on me! Why the hell, would I BREAK THE MOP HANDLE???? So that I can get DOWN ON MY KNEES to SCRUB the kitchen floor and WATCH MY BLISTERS POP?!!??!?" I finish my little rant and I notice that my step-mothers face is purple! I am pleased. "YOU THINK THAT THIS IS FUNNY?!?!?!?? YOUNG LADY, FOR THAT, I HAVE SOME NEWS FOR YOU. YOUR PLANNED SCHOOLING IS CANCELLED UNTIL ME AND YOUR FATHER GET BACK FROM AMERICA, AND THAT WHOLE TIME YOU WILL BE LOOKING AFTER YOUR LITTLE BROTHER, LIKE HE WAS ROYALTY, DO I MAKE MYSELF CLEAR??!?!?!?!!??!!?!??"

I take a step back, she actually cancelled my education my one ticket out of this hell hole life. I didn't even know that you could do that! I can feel tears welling up behind my eyelids, soon I will be crying, I know that much, so I turn around and run to my little sofa in the tiny lounge that the family does not use, and slam the door hard.  

I bury my head in my patched pillow and cry, I cry and cry and cry. It seems that I am always crying nowadays. I try to stop crying but I just can`t so I keep sobbing, noislesly. I would kill myself rather than give my step-mom the satisfaction of hearing me crying.
