Runaway Child

Run.

She stood at the door, book bag strapped to her back.

It didn't contain any books though.

Go.

Katarina told her if she left to not come back.

At least to not to her.

Leave.

She tried to tell Rhodes, but the words failed

To leave her lips.

Find.

Her mother was out there, somewhere.

And she had to know where.

Stay

The words had been given to Andrew in a half-asleep state.

Mumbled in a low voice. He told her no.

Go

She wanted to stay. She really did.
