1. Stuck in Her Daydreams

It started when I was sixteen.

It was about a month after my sixteenth birthday in February, and I got something really special for a gift. It was a locket with a picture of me and my parents in it, that must've cost a fortune for my parents who had very little money.

Anyway, it was about a month after, and I woke up one day and they were just.. Gone. I don't even like to recollect about it.

I live in just about the worst part of New York City. I've dropped out of school and now I have no place to live. They tried to put me in a foster home, but I ran away (I'm pretty clever) and died my hair red with the last of my money. Now, basically, I'm twenty, living in a subway station, and making money by singing in the street. Sounds like an awesome life, huh?

At least my life isn't dull, or boring. That's not what I want. I don't want life like all these adults now a days. Start off a kid, playing in the back yard with your siblings, before you know it, your graduating from high school, and off to college where you meet your mate who you don't even really love, but your parents want you to settle down, graduate, have a mediocre job, have some kids, and then.. That's it. I don't want that. I want to find true love, like Noah and Allie from the Notebook, one of the only movies I've ever seen. Lying in the middle of street, getting ice cream together, having actual fun. I want to be a singer-songwriter. I want to go cliff jumping, sky diving, be on television. But most of all, like I said, I want to have love like Noah and Allie's. Noah would do anything for Allie, and that's what I want.

But that is just a daydream.

You know what I really want to do? To start a new life? Go to England. Yah. That's what I wanna do. I wanna see London. I know what I'll do, I'll hitchhike there. Not like I've never done it before. Just not all the way to England!

No, it'll never happen. I can't go that far by hitch hiking..

I quickly pulled out all the money in my pocket I've been saving for a while, I wonder how much I've got...

Woah. I've got more than I thought...

I counted all my money. Three hundred and forty five. That should be enough.

I found the nearest glass building and looked at myself, just to make sure I didn't look homeless. I fixed up my hair, combing it with my hair like I do regularly. I use the showers at the local pool at night to get my daily shower in. I buy cloths every once in a while, but I don't really care what I look like, I just like feeling clean. I had on an oversized blue plaid shirt and jeans a size too small, but I didn't look too bad. My mom always said I was always "so pretty" but I never saw it.

I hitch hiked to the nearest airport and bought one ticket to London, England. England, here I come!
