For the love of a runaway

In this town. In this town where you can never tell a lie from the real truth. Everyone has a secret, and everyone knows the truth, that none of us will ever know what the truth really is. This could be a lie, this could be a secret. But who will ever know? You can't trust anyone, and everyone else can't trust you. It's all just a phantom secret and it's really good at hiding. They're all just secrets in the wind.

Radly Myers has had enough of this town. After the mysterious death of her father, her mother becomes the new couch ornament. Always saying she would find a job when in reality she won't. That leaves Radly to take care of her Eight year old sister, Zoe. She can't handle it anymore, finding out that her mother has been repeating the abuse done to her, onto Zoe. She packs up and takes her sister with her, now taking over the role of mother and big sister. Skipping towns to make sure her mother never finds them, will she find someone who can't let her go. Will she stay for him?

11. Chapter Eleven

"Zoo zoo, what are you doing here?" I ask shocked.

"I came to find you." She says.

"Well you shouldn't have walked all this way on your own. There are some bad people in this world, you never know who is walking right next to you." Zoe nods her head.

"Well, I'm fine. Can't you see?" She smarts off.

I smile and wave her over to me. She laughs and runs over.

"Sorry, Blaine. This is just my sister, Zoe."

"Well hi there." He greets.

"I like him already." She whispers to me. "Hi. You have a cool name."

He chuckles. "So do you, I've never met a Zoe before."

She chuckles, they were getting along great already. He turns back to me. "So, we still on for tomorrow?" He asks.

Zoe nudges my side. I nod. "Yeah, see you there."

"Alright. Bye Radly. He smiles. "Goodbye Zoe." He tells her before walking out.

"Zoe, come sit behind the counter and wait for my shift to be over. I don't want you walking back alone."

She sits down in my chair and waits for my shift to end.

I sigh and drop my purse on the floor and fall onto the bed. "Long day?" She asks.

"You better believe it."

"So, what are we going to do tonight?"

"Hmmm." I smile while rolling over to face her, laying my head against my palm. "How about you help me pick something out for my date tomorrow."

She immediately gets up and starts rummaging through drawers. I loved my sister to death, I just hope I could keep her safe until she is able to do this on her own. I'm guessing that mom will give up sooner or later. Zoe kind of frightens me every once in a while - I almost think she likes running. I don't want her to like it, well I want her to like some of the experiences, but I want her to be able to find love like I can't and have a family like I can't. I want her to have the stuff I couldn't give her and the stuff I couldn't give myself. I want her to be the happiest person ever and you better believe I will do anything for that little girl. Anything...
