6. I apologize
It isn't easy to form words with others, especially when you've been sheltered from that your whole life. Coming into this apology was a lot harder but for communication inexperience purposes instead of guilt or unhappiness.
I gathered my courage once we started our "small talk". I said hello! Inside I was just jumping for joy!
I was facing the five boys in front of me. I started to finish my apology.
"Okay, so I am Mara Hope. My last name may be Hope, yet I am as hopeless as you could find. I am originally from California, U.S.A. I moved here about two months ago. I have vicious parents and I was running away from them, but I bumped into one of you. I thought for sure I was a goner, so when I woke up and had mini encounters with complete strangers, I may have over reacted. So for that I apologize. I don't need pity, and I don't need love. I will never receive those things because to exceed my wishes you'd have to aim high. I don't belong here. I'm dumb. I've never been outside of my house, except the one time I was on a plane. I've been sheltered my whole life and I can't stay here. They'll find me and hunt me down. And then for sure, I'll be dead." I took a deep breath.
The others just looked at me with concern."Are you okay?" The curly haired one asked. "Do you honestly think I'm okay?" I asked with a bit of attitude.
All of a sudden I started shaking uncontrollably. They are near! I know it! "They are near. Please don't blow my cover." I whispered.
They nodded and then the doorbell rang. Ding Dong Ding Dong!
