Runaway: part one.Day 1
The power is out, I only have one chance at this. I grab a bag and stuff it with things I need. Water, food, clothes, etc. My brother is upstairs in his room. He's playing cards with our best friend, Max. Max and my brother were both sixteen. I just had to be the younger one. I'm fifteen. I just have to be the girl in our group. I hear my brother complaining about how is Max cheating and I could hear Max's laughter. I grab my bag and head out the door.
I head out to the only place I know by heart. All the street lamps are out due to the power outage and most peoples' houses are dark too. Except the ones who have generators, which are only a few. Even in almost complete darkness, I find my footing. I know the path to where I'm going too well. I keep my pace as a fast walk. The weight of my bag isn't too heavy; so it doesn't slow me down.
I take a right turn onto Peter St. That's when I see him. It's Henry, a guy from my class. I can just make him out. He's throwin
Imagine Nature.Imagine nature in black and white
It would be dull
Like a worn down pencil
It would be lifeless
A lifeless photograph

A lone pepple in a pile of sand
Imagine nature in color
The sound of the crunching grass
The vibrant colors all around
It's like a rainbow
That lasts all year
Imagine nature as a photograph
In black and white
And in color
Can you see the difference?
i know that he is.i know that he is gone.
i know that he is not here.
i know that he is not coming back.
i know that he is up there.
but can you please,
i'm tired of you goddamn sympathy.
Phoebe."Can I please have all girls come down to the auditorium, immediately? Thank you."
The principal's voice rang throughout the empty hallways and into the student-filled classrooms. The teachers stopped to hear the announcement. They were confused, in fact, everyone was. But most curious of all, was fifteen year old Phoebe Nelson. She headed toward the auditorium along with the others. All of the other students were just as confused and curious as the next. One boy had even tried to get by the teacher.
The auditorium was full of girls. That may appeal to most guys, but not me. The girl I'm looking for has to be in here somewhere. I just have to find her.
Everyone was sitting in the auditorium. Most of them, like me, were talking to their friends sitting next to each other. Me and Stella were sitting near the front. The one thing that did catch my attention was the boy standing next to the principal on the stage. The boy was tapping on the microphone, sending a low, but loud, thud
