A short story; I just felt like writing and this is what came out!


1. Denied

           "I can't believe mom and dad left me."

          I walked slowly, hating my parents more with every step. They had climbed into their car one day and just....left. No "goodbye"s. No "I love you"s. They left me, alone. They had never loved me anyway, so why am I expecting them to have said anything kind to me? I tripped over a root sticking out of the soggy dirt and fell with a sickening THUMP. I screamed in pain. I just sprained my dumb ankle, I know that for sure! I am trying to get to Chicago from where I live, or should I say, used to live. I lived in Orfordville, WI, and Chicago is the first place that came to mind when I was thinking of good areas to go. This ankle wouldn't be helping me out at all. 

         I sat up, grimacing from the sharp pain bolting up my leg. I stood up, shaking off the torment that it was emitting. I pulled myself along, knowing that I couldn't go on like this forever. 

          After about 15 minutes, I collapsed. Why did I think I could make this journey?! Now I am alone with a sprained ankle, no phone, and.....lost. I hated to admit it, but....I am lost. I have never been this far from home, and there is no turning back. 

         My stomach started to growl, and soon the longing for food overcame the pain. I desperately looked around, hoping to find something edible. There was nothing. I stood up and limped around. I saw something over to the west of me. It was a drop-off. A cliff. I walked fearlessly toward it and peered over the edge. I couldn't even see the bottom; it was getting dark. I closed my eyes and thought. Why....should I keep going? What exactly am I hoping to find in Chicago? I looked down again as a tear fell down my dirty face. It fell and fell, into the deep hole. The cliff seemed to go on for eternity; just a black gaping whole in the middle of the world. Maybe....that's where I belong.... I cried out. 

And jumped.
