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?


6. Chapter Six

The clock chimes. Then I think 'that will be the last time I ever hear that clock chime for a shift change'. I almost want to cry. Yeah, I hate this town, but this place...this diner, was my sanctuary. I hate to say it, but I am really going to miss this place. I take off my apron and hang it on the hook.

I walk to Mary's office, where Zoe is waiting for me, so if by chance mom comes around she won't see her. "Ready, Zoo Zoo?" I ask. She nods and I help her put on her sweater.

We walk out and up to the stools in the front of the diner. Mary sees me and half smiles, walking over with a little white envelope. She slides it over to me. I open it up and it is way more than what I am supposed to be getting. I look up at her in surprise.

"There must be a mistake, I don't earn this much on pay day." I tell her concerned.

"Yes, but you've earned it." She smiles. "You were the best worker we have ever had working here. We're going to miss you."

"I-I can't." I try to give it back but she just pushes my hands away.

"No, really. Keep it. You deserve it."

I let out a few tears and lean in to give her a hug. "I'm gonna miss you. You were like a second mom to me."

"Well, you were the best daughter I never had." She smiles.

"Goodbye." I cry.

"Goodbye. Come visit if you can."

"I will." I nod.

I look down to Zoe. "Hold my hand." She grabs my hand and we walk to the door. I stop just before we leave and take one last look at the diner that saved my life.


My nerves kick in as I leave the shop. I look down to my feet and watch as I walk. I guess it's a nervous habit, like biting the inside of my mouth. I keep walking like this until I run into something hard. I knew it was a person. I look to to say sorry but end up getting mesmerized by the boy's blue eyes. He was a little taller than myself and he had short brown hair. I must look like a total fool because instead of saying something, I just sit there with my mouth hanging open.

"I'm sorry." He says and bends over to pick up my bag for me. I hadn't even known I had dropped it. "Here you go." His British accent makes my heart skip a beat.

"T-thanks. Uhhh...sorry, I must have not been paying attention."

"That's alright." I open my mouth to say something else but close it again. "Goodbye." I walk past him.

"Wait." He calls. I turn around. "What's your name?"

I smile. "Radly."

"I'm Blaine. Nice to meet you, Radly." He smiles.

"Nice to meet you too." Then we go in our seperate directions.
