1. Saying Goodbye
" I don't' care anymore." she says. "They've said all that they wanted to say. It's not their choice, it's not your choice. It's my choice."she says as she walks out of the room with her stuff. "Victoria! Victoria Evangeline Ross, don't walk away from me." her mother says with a stern tone. Victoria turns around. "I told you I was going to do it. I told you about all of this. I warned you, Mom. I warned you. But, no. You along with everyone else didn't believe me. You just laughed." Victoria said as tears streamed down her face. " I'll show you. I'll show you all." Victoria said as she walked towards her car. Her mother walked quickly after her. " Victoria, please. Don't go. I love you, sweetheart. I don't want anything to happen to you."she said, as Victoria turned around. She looked at her mother. All the thoughts going through her head. Do I really want to leave? Do I have to take responsibility right now? Why am I even doing this? She had only done this to prove that she wasn't so innocent, that she could prove something. Why? She was tired off being treated like a baby. A little girl. She didn't want to get in all that trouble. Shoplifting, carjacking , etc. What had she done? She didn't know." I'm sorry, I have to do this. For myself. I have to teach myself. I'll be fine on my own. I can take care of myself."she said. Her mother broke into tears."Please-" "Mom, I can't! I'm sorry. Goodbye."she said as she got into her car and drove off."Goodbye." her mother whispered.
