2. The Great Escape
When I got to school this morning my best friend, Lexa, met me at the gates.
"OMG! Star, what happened?!" she said refering to my black eye.
I haven't told anyone about what my "father" does to me, so I had to fake it.
"I slipped in the bathroom last night and smacked my face on the sink." I said slyly.
"Well, you should be more careful!" she laughed.
~~~skip to third period~~~
"Excuse me, Mrs. Mayes?"
She looked up from her stack of papers and said, "Yes, Star?"
"May I go to the restroom?"
"Yes, hurry and take the pass." she said returning to her papers.
I went to my locker and retrieved the bag I made up last night, laid the pass on one of the bathroom sinks, then quietly walked down the hall to the exit and left.
When the bell rang signalling lunch, i went straight to Star's locker to walk with her to lunch. When she didn't come to her locker, I got worried. She always goes to her locker, so I went to her third peroid teacher and asked if she attended that class.
"Yes, she did. But she asked to go to the restroom and didn't come back."
