Homeless

I watched as my house went up in flames.
Great my parents are dead.
Only god knows where my brother is.
My adoptive home is on fire.
Can't go back to being a foster child.
Where do I go?

2. Alone

I ran until I couldn't breath anymore. I then walked to a large tree and started to climb it. When I got to a branch I liked I sat down on it and looked up. Some thing in the distance was not like the forest. I then hopped down from the tree and headed towards the direction I had saw some thing. When I got there it was a large building. It looked like an old school. The walls were covered in ivy as I opened the door. It was a large room. When I started walking around to each class room each one was in good shape. I then picked a classroom which still had binders and papers on the desks. I then walked down one of the aisles and looked at each paper. July 5, 1996.

"Get out." I heard as I quickly turned around. There standing was a boy. About my age but a little taller.

"What?" I asked stareing at him. He had dirty blond hair and dirt all over him. He was a bit musclur like a foot ball player.

"I said get out." He repeated taking a step towards me.

"Please. Im a orphan, Ive been in countless foster homes and 4 adoptive homes. My parents died in a fire a year  and a half ago and my brother rran away. I was just running away from a house that was on fire. My adoptive home. The man was drunk and drove away leaving me. Please let me stay." I said tearing up. His face then softened when a tear escaped my eyes. He then walked over to me and brought me close into a hug.

"Look at me." He said grabbing hold of my face in his hands. He the wiped a tear away with his thumb.

"You can stay but stay close to me. Alright?" He said. I nodded as he brought me in a large bear hug.

"Come on." He said grabbing my hand.

"Are you the only one in this place?" I asked as we went in to the gym.

"Yeah pretty much." He said as we walked ferther into the gym.

"This is pretty much my home now. This I guess you can call our bedroom and that over there is my "bed"." He pointed over to mats layed out in a corner.

"Here ill get you some mats." He said pulling them out from the closet.

"Thanks." I said sitting down on my bed that was next to his.

"Yeah no problem." He said sitting down.

"How old are you?" I asked.

"14. You?"

"13." I replied looking around.

"Since I told you m story its your turn." I said looking at him.

"When I was 9 my parents died in a car accedent. My little sister died immidently while my mom and dad died in the hospital. I was adopted by a family friend but they died in a fire. When the police were trying to get me in the car I ran away. Into the forest. Withen a few hours I found this place." He said looking around.

"So you have been in here for 5 years?" I asked my eyes widing as he nodded.

"How do you get the food?" I asked hungry.

"I hunt it." He said laying down.

"Well do you want a granold bar?" I asked.

"A what?" He asked sitting back up and facing me.

"A granola bar here try it." I said giving him one. He took a bite out of it as his eyes widend and he quickly ate the whole thing.

"So Im taking it you liked it?" I laughed as he nodded and licked his fingers.

"So is there anything I should know about this place?" I asked now sitting next to him.

"Well ok once a week my older brother who is a runaway drops a bag of food off here for me. He isn't aloud in here. At night I have to stay awake because sometimes animals get in here. I do have a bow and arrow to shoot these animals. Thats my mine source of food. Sometimes a kid would find this place but I always scare them away. I keep the food in that closet with that lock so bears don't get into it."

"Bears?!" I yelled staring at him.

"Haha!! Gotcha. But I do keep the food in there and everything else is true though." He said laughing.

"You doofus!!" I yelled pushing him over and laughing.

"So why isn't your brother aloud in here?" I asked laying down next to him.

"Becuase he has been in jail multiple times and I don't wanna be dragged into anything with him."   He explained looking around.

"I don't think I caught your name." I said.

"Jake. And what about you?" Jake asked looking at me with soft eyes.

"Brittany." I told him. He then looked down and a tear dropped to the floor.

"Jake, whats wrong?" I asked sitting closer to him and searching for his eyes.

"That was my sisters name. You wouldve liked her. She was always smileing and laughing. She and I were really close. She was only 2 years younger then me. She was so young. She loved life." He said as he looked at me and he cried.

I wrapped a arm around him and held him close as he cried into my sholder.

"Its ok. Everything is going to be ok." I soothed as he tried to catch his breath. I then grabbed hold of my bag and pulled out my soft blanket. I then wrapped it around us as we both layed down and fell asleep.

When I woke up the light was shining right into my eyes and Jake was no where to be found.

"Jake?" I called out walking threw the halls.

"Get the fucking out." I heard. I then ran downt the hall to find Jake and a girl with red hair in a braid standing there.

"Why she is here!?" The girl said starting to walk around.

"Get out!" Jake yelled clenching his fists. Then as the girl walked past him he grabbed her wrists with a large grip and threw her outside.

"Fine then." She called out and ran away.

I stood there shook on what Jake just did. One second he was a soft crying boy the next he was pushing a girl out.

"Im sorry Brittany." he apolgized and brought me into a hug.

"Just be a little softer next time." I told him as we hugged.

Click Clack Click Clack

We heard we pulled away and there was a large male deer walking into a classroom.

"Shh go close that door." He said as we crept towards it.

I then grabbed the door closed as Jake took off running. A few seconds later he came back with a bow and arrow.

"Don't watch this." He said as a nodded his head to open the door. He then walked slowly in. Jake then closed the door and I backed away.

"Shit." i heard as I opened the door.

The deer then hit me down with his antlers and Jake shot the arrow.

"Stay here." He said and ran.

When he came back he had bandages.

"This might hurt." He said noticing that the deer's antlers had stabbed me.

He then slid my shorts farther up hmy leg and wrapped the bandage around my leg as I winced. I then wrapped a arm around him. He then picked me up with no effort and layed me down.

"Thanks." I said as he layed down next to him.

"ill get the deer tomorrow." He said as I  nodded.

Wow Jake was getting cuter every second.

"How do you have the courage to kill those animals?" I asked looking up at him.

He shrugged. "I dont know. When thats tghe only food around who would really do anything I guess." He said.

We both then drifted off to sleep in each others arms.

The next morning I woke up to find Jake eating what I think is the deer.

"Want some?" He asked holding out a fork with deer at the end of it.

I nodded and tried to grab the fork.

"No." He said pulling it away. "Open."

I then opened my mouth as he put the small peice in my mouth. As I grabbed hold of it and he pulled the fork out the meat was juicy.

"Its good. How did you cook it?" I asked licking my lips.

"The stove in the kitchen." He said giving me another peice.

He then stabbed the last peice and held the fork up to my mouth.

"No you eat it." I said knowing he was more hungry then I was.

"Brittany." he whined as I opened my mouth.

"Thanks." I said as Jake grinned.

"I think your really pretty." He said grinning and looking down imbarssed.

"Thanks." I said blushing.

The next few seconds happened so fast. He then pushed his lips to mine as we kissed in sync together. We pulled away at the same time.

"Sorry." He apogized.

Why? Why was he apoligizing?

I then did the unthinkable. I pressed my lips to his as our lips went in sync. As we pulled away Jake held my face between his hands. He grinned and brought me in a large bear hug.
