do you trust me ?
I finally woke up, probably around seven in the morning. Too early, I thought to myself, I only got about six and a half hours of sleep. I blinked, bringing flashes of light to my eyes. I saw a blurr of the room around me, along with multiple shapes and colors. The sun's bright glare stung my eyes, so I brought my hand up to sheild them.
I rubbed my newly opened eyes and wiped the painful memories of sleep from them. Sleep, it would never be peaceful for me. These dreams would plage my unconcious for the rest of my life, and I can't do anything to stop it.
Once my vision was clear I yawned and stretched my arms. I was sore from all the running and stress I had gone through yesturday. So I decided to take it easy today, maybe just play video games with Steal or Shots. Squeek, a strange noise came from the floor next to my bed, so I turned my head in its direction.
Thats when I saw their faces, stairing at me with complete shock. Tod and some members of t

Mac and the crew
I looked from the police to the brick wall. I had no where to go. The police advanced, slowly making there way to me and Tod. I closed my eyes and let the energy in me to come out. A power surged through me, like I was walking on air. I bent down low, then jumped off the ground with all my strength. In mid-air I flipped sideways and pushed off one of the walls of the dead-end ally. I hit the next wall with my feet and ran straight up the wall for a few feet then back flipped to the other wall. I was bouncing back and forth, getting closer and closer to the roof of the buildings that blocked me in. It took only seconds for me to flip back and forth to the roof. The cops were mesmerised by my actions. They would have never guessed that I could get out, they thought it was over, but I knew I was better than them. I wish I could say that I smiled and laughed as I flipped, but the truth is that I cried. My face was soaked in tears, I don't know how Tod can sm

We ran, wind whiping through my hair, the sun bright in my eyes. I smiled and laughed. Tod was a little ahead of me, so I used some of my extra speed to catch up, then I even ran faster than him. Jumping over trash cans, and shoving through some crowds of people. Rude people would scream cruel names at us and threaten to call the cops. Street trash, rats, thats what we were to the them, like we shouldn't have even be born. I smiled at them, knowing that their just packed with hatred, and will shrivel up and die someday, and no one would care. So I brushed off all the insults and laughed with Tod. They can't stop me from being happy, only I can.
I jumped off one of the trash cans, and with skill, I landed on the fence. I looked at Tod, he was shocked. When I started running on the fence, Tod climbed the fence on the other side of the street. He wiggled a little, but he held his feet strong on the fence. So it was a race. We ran like two circus high wire extrodinair

just one of 1.5 million
I can't hurt Rose anymore. I don't want to be responcible for the pain and suffering of my friends. So there is only one thing I knew would solve both of those problems.
I packed all my cloths into my backpack, along with all the lunch money that was I was going to use next week. I grabbed a bottle of water, some food, and the only picture I had of Rose and me. It was small, but next to my purple bouncy ball, it was my most precious possession. I was going to take my journal, but I think its safer here. I took one last look around, then climbed out the window.
Each year over 1.5 million kids run away from home. I guess that makes me just one of over 1.5 million.
I took a deep breath, I was going to miss Rose, Ryan, and even X a little, but I knew I was doing the right thing, by leaving.
I walked over to the sidewalk then started to run at super speed. Colors of the houses and other structures flashed by, I saw shades of green and blue, but mostly ju
