Where now? Who now? When now? In front of me was a vast of blankness. I took a deep breath. It was as if I was in a magical, nonrealistic world. I took one tiny step. Paused. Then I sensed my surroundings. There was no one following every movement I make. I twirled around. My surrounding was empty. I let out a small yelp. Then I screamed, "AHHHHHHHH!" All I heard was my echo. I took another deep breath. Then I thought to myself, so this is what it is like to be alive.
For twenty years, I was contained in a house that lacked every form of love and affection vital for the growth of a child. Since my parents were one of the richest and fastest growing money makers in the world, our home was a ...view middle of the document...
I decided to walk towards the road on my right. The road was long and endless. As I was walking, a stream of thoughts came into my head. I realized that I have no clue of what the world is like out here. In our house, there was never a case of danger or complication. Everything was worked out for me, as if my life was like a system programmed to function manually. But I have decided to get rid of those worries. I wanted to experience the feeling of making my own decisions, encountering danger and complications, experiencing the excitement of this wonderful world.
I have been walking for probably around twenty minutes already. Then I came upon a highway. There's is still no sign of people, so I continued walking. I walked for probably an hour now. Then I heard distant rumbling sounds from behind me. I turned around. I see a small dot in the far end of the road. The dot became bigger and bigger and the sound became louder and louder. Could it be a car? For some reason, my heart began to race. I have never met anyone else other than the teachers and workers back in our house. The object is now in visible sight. It is a car! I was in complete astonishment. But before I came back to my senses, the car has already passed me. Then I frantically started chasing the car. But the car just kept going. I was starting to run out of strength but I knew I cannot let this chance of meeting others. Finally the car stopped. Perhaps it had finally seen my figure from behind. I used the last bit of my energy to catch up to the car. The car door opened.
“Um, are you alright?” asked a young girl that just got out of the car.
I spent a few moments to catch my breath. Then I replied, “Yes, I’m fine.”
“Uhhh..what is your name?” she asked.
“My name is..,” then I paused. I thought to myself, I shouldn’t use my real name if I want to become someone new. “Um..Kai..my name is Kai,” I said, but my name is not Kai.
"Oh, hello Kai." She replied with a face of confusion, probably confused from my awkwardness and uncertainty of my speech.
“What is your name?” asked Kai.
“Oh, my name is Angel,” said the girl.
“Can you take me away?” Kai asked
“HUH?” replied Angel with an astonished look.
“Oh, I meant..can I get a ride to wherever you’re going?” Kai asked again.
“Sure,” replied Angel. Kai was surprised by how quickly she agreed.
We got into her car and Angel started driving forward again. We...
