2. On the run

"Oh my god. I have to run away... Nobody wants me. Who else can I go to, Mike? No, he is too mr.popular to care about his cousins. Lisa, no I really don't need all that religious gunk in my mind." Mira wrote in her journal. She stopped there because she could not think about anybody else. 

She packed a bag of things like money, change of clothes, water, food, band-aids, blankets, and antibiotics. No pleasure items because they would take up too much space. After she was finished packing up her backpack, she had a little more room left, so she packed her favorite book, The Chronicles Of Narnia. She had to think of a plan, where to go. It had to be close to civilization, but in the woods, because if the cops catch her, she can get jail time. 

The cops do not like people that run away. It is against the law. If they find you, you go to jail. They don't realize that people do not want their children, so they kick them out. They don't even give you a chance to explain. They read you your miranda rights and cuff you before you can share your story.

Mira decides to go into the woods. It will be good cover and she will still be close to civilization.. The morning of her birthday, her parents wake her up at 6:30 and say their wimpy goodbye's and show her the door. 

She is so angry and sad at the same time. She storms out the door and runs into the woods. She knows her education is over, because if they caught her she would be dead. She just runs into the woods with all hope of survival.
