1. The Runaway
Hi, my name is Mellissa. I'm nineteen years old. My life is full of sadness. My mom died in a car accident 2 years ago. Since then, I've been getting abused by my step-dad. I lost all my respect for him so lets just call him Chris. Until now. For months, I've planed to run away from home. In my room, I have a small bag with 2 outfits, a hairbrush, a toothbrush, and a few tubes of toothpaste. My dad normally goes to bed around 9:30pm, so, I'll leave then. Right now, it's 9:25pm, so five minutes until I leave. I go to were Chris sleeps, he's already out. This is my chance. I quietly walk to my room. I take my stuff, and slowly go to the front door. I am nervous, but this had to be done. I close the front door slowly, and start running. I don't know were I'm going, but I keep running. Until I reach a dark ally way. Then, few minutes later, I see someone approach me.
