Thea was walking with her bag slung over her shoulder. She knew that her parents wouldn't be looking for her. Well, her mother that is. After the fight they had a few hours earlier, even if that bitch was still awake, she would still be too pissed to check on her. She was already too far from her house anyways. She smiled to herself as she remembered the fact that she had taken all the money from her mother's walllet, and most of the food. See how well sshe can live without her then. She put down the skateboard that she was holding, now knowing that there was no chance of her 'mother' hearing it and waking up. She started to ride it down the road to a favorite hang-out place she always went to with the guys. In the woods near a park. They had built a clubhouse there when they were kids, and whenever someone in their group ran away, that's where you would find them the next day. As she made it there, she was relieved to find that none of her friends were there. She liked hanging out with them, it's just that she needed some alone time. She climbed up the ladder that was built into the side of the tree and went in the little house and layed on the floor, exhausted.
