I knew he was probably gone, I peaked out of the shack to see if he was possibly there. I put my hood up and left the shack looking down at my feet not really paying attention.
I went around the corner then it happened. I bumped into someone. I knew Max would find me. I looked up scared of what would happen next.
"Oops. Sorry I didn't mean to bump into you." Said this tall blond boy in front of me. He looked young. Thank god it wasn't Max. "What is a young girl like you roaming the streets this late at night alone?" I didn't know what to say. I can't just tell a complete stranger that I ran away from my abusive stepdad that raped me and is out to get me.
"I... I... Ummm.. Left." That's all that came out. Fuck. That sounded stupid. I saw his eyes look down at my bag realizing 'left' as for good.
"It's kind of cold do you need a ride to a friends?" He asked. I don't have any friends or anybody to go to. I wasn't allowed to.
"I... I... Don't... Have... Anybody..."why the fuck am I stuttering. I never stutter.
"Oh, I know we just met but if you'd like, you could stay with me and my friends" what choice did I have, there's nobody to go to, and if I kept walking Max could have bumped into me.
"Sure, thanks" luckily we were just across the street from his car.
~------ car ride --------~
"So what's the name?" The blond guy asked.
"Alex, what's yours?"
"Luke" FINALLY THIS AMAZING BLOND HAS A NAME!!
"How old are you?" I had to ask I didn't want to be riding to a 30 year olds house.
"17" he said, thank god.
"So why?" he asked
"Why did you leave?"
He seemed nice so far. So I told him everything except for my self harm. He listened to me, he didn't pull over or kick me out either. I never had someone who would just listen to what I had to say before. It felt good.
Finally we arrived to his place. It was huge.
