For the love of a runaway

In this town. In this town where you can never tell a lie from the real truth. Everyone has a secret, and everyone knows the truth, that none of us will ever know what the truth really is. This could be a lie, this could be a secret. But who will ever know? You can't trust anyone, and everyone else can't trust you. It's all just a phantom secret and it's really good at hiding. They're all just secrets in the wind.

Radly Myers has had enough of this town. After the mysterious death of her father, her mother becomes the new couch ornament. Always saying she would find a job when in reality she won't. That leaves Radly to take care of her Eight year old sister, Zoe. She can't handle it anymore, finding out that her mother has been repeating the abuse done to her, onto Zoe. She packs up and takes her sister with her, now taking over the role of mother and big sister. Skipping towns to make sure her mother never finds them, will she find someone who can't let her go. Will she stay for him?


7. Chapter Seven

Once we cross the street from the diner, I have to keep telling myself not to look back. We walk down a few different streets until we have to cross again. Zoe, already knowing the drill, holds her hand up to me. I take her hand in mine and we quickly walk across the street. I can see the train station and the bus stop on each side of me from where I am standing. I just stop and stare, thinking about which could get me further. Obviously it would be the train. I step up onto the concrete slab and up to the little ticket window.

"Hello." The woman greets.

"Hi. Two ticket's, please."

"Alright, where would you like to go?"

I smile. "Surprise me."


When I get back to the hotel and up to the room, I walk in to find Zoe watching cartoons and playing with her dolls.

"Hey, Zoo Zoo." I call. "Whatcha doin?" I ask sitting next to her.

"Watching Spongbob."

"Where you good while I was gone?" She just nods. "Guess what?"

She turns her head to face me. "What?"

"I got a job today."

"Auuuuu." She whines.

"It's not a bad thing." I say, she just sits there with her stink face. "It means, we get to go have some more fun in paradise." I smile, holding up my wallet. Her expression immediately changes from disappointment to happiness.


"Okay, where do you wanna go this time?" I ask Zoe as we walk down the same sidewalk we walked down the other night.

"How about...there." She points to yet another Vintage/antique store across the street. I nod and grab her hand.

When we walk in, I immediately smile. I love places like this. We walk around a little bit, when something catches my eye. I stop and pick up the little gold locket. It has black, engraved flower/ vine designs on the front with a smooth back. Hanging on the same chain right next to it was a small, green bird pendant, and hanging next to it was a small white rose pendant. It was like it was there for me to find. I meet Zoe up at the check out counter and gently lay the necklace down.

The lady smiles. "They say the bird represents freedom, and the rose represents love and luck." I smile back at her. "Thanks for coming." She says as we grab our bags.

"Thank you." I say back. 

When we walk out of the shop, I have a smile plastered on my face.
