I pulled out my phone, seeing the missed calls from my mom.
4:36 - missed call from mom
4:58 - missed call from mom
5:24 - missed call from mom
7:45 - missed call from mom
It's now 12:54 in the morning and I'm still walking. I'm exhausted. My feet are throbbing. I need to find somewhere to go.
I walked to the next town which is west from Keyesville. Called "Jared Township". It's even smaller than Keyesville.
A population of 75....
I walk to a homeless shelter nearby that I looked up.
I walk into the old, crusty building.
People walk past me and glare, look me up and down. I tear up from the cruelness. I walk up to the desk and ask if there's any room.
"What's your name, honey?" She says sweetly.
"Julia.." I respond
"How old are you, sweetie?"
"16.." I whisper
She nods and leads me into the woman's section.
She sets me up a bed next this tall, skinny woman.
She leaves and I sit on my bed.
"What's a lovey girl like you doin here?" I hear
I turn around to see a woman with long black dreads hanging from her head.
"My name is Jewel." She says softly, "Whats yours?"
"Nice to meet ya, Julia!"
I smile weakly and lays down.
I close my eyes for a second, and soon falls into a dark sleep.
