Meet Me Deep In the Forest -By the Willow Tree-

*Part of Story*

I crawl over to the relaxing stream and look at the moonlit reflexion. But the person who stares back at me, isn't me. She has the same flaming red curls, the same height, but what I see isn't who she was a year ago. Instead of the light blue eyes with speckles of gold that could light up anyone's day, is a dark blue pit. A hole, that is filled with anger, confusion, and hurt. Her face is shallow. This thing is in pain. Her bruises and scars show on her arms.

I don't know this person.

*Real Description*
Scarelott lives with her parents and her little brother, Oliver, or Ollie. They are very close, but when her parents, Neil and Molly start to have troubles with the bills, things start to go downhill. They get into drinking problems, and now they are abusing their children. When Red (Scarelott) can't take it anymore, she runs away. She is seventeen years old, and knows only one place that she can stay. Deep in the forest, by the willow tree.

2. The Getaway

I continue down the hallway to my bedroom, and find a bag. I quickly put in my importance. Money, flashlight, pocketknife, change of clothes, and a little bit of canned food. I open my window and slip into the street not saying goodbye to the rest of that retched prison I once called home. I flee to the forest and swiftly run through the trees. I slow when I hear the familiar sound of a trickling stream. I know I am safe in these woods, but I am constantly flinching whenever I hear leaves rustling about. 

As I come to the small creek, I let my bag drop to the ground as I plop down with them and think about what my life will be like now. What am I going to do? Just live on the streets? I sigh trying to get my brain in order.
