Running to a New Beginning

Leigh finally made her escape from the horrible orphanage she lived in since she was five. But when she runs away, Where will she go? After all, shes only thirteen. Where will she find food? Shelter? Where will she go? What will she do?


1. Running Away

Leighs POV.

I ran. My legs moving faster by the second. I smiled at the thought that I was leaving the horrible orphange. I fled, I ran the fastest my legs could carry me. I ran through the Big City. New York. Not having a clue where I was going I just kept moving myself along the grey sidewalks until I knew I was far enough. But I wasnt far enough yet. Tears trickled down my cheeks at all the bad memories from the orphanage. I've been there since I was five and the day I came in I was dreaming about this escape. I knew they wont find me because they wouldnt care that I have left. But I wanted to be the farthest away from possible. A few more tears escaped my eyes from terrible thoughts.

***********Flash Back***********

"I said to make the sandwiches!" The cruel Headmistress barked.

"But I dont want to!" I said innocently.

"But you have to!" She yelled and slapped me in the face.

*****End of FLASH BACK***********

 I was only six.

I remember the stinging pain vividly it hurt. I= My legs were starting to get tired but I kept going.

Before I knew it I crashed into someone.

"I'm so sorry" I said to him.

"Thats no problem love, What are you doing out here in  those clothes?" He asked in a British Accent.

"Running Away" The words just slipped out of my mouth. I glanced down at my short sleeved tshirt it was raining and pretty cold even though it was summer.

"From where?" He asked

"The orphanage" I whispered.

He lifted my chin up. I looked up to see a boy about 18 with curly brown hair. He had shiny green eyes.

"Come with me" He said taking my hand and leading me down the street.
