Story-Run-A-Way

Updated on June 10, 2009

Today was a bad day for me and  I am very sad...:O(

When I woke up this morning mommy and daddy were fighting, and even though they think we don't hear them, we do and I feel very sorry about what I hear them say... always I go to their room and walk in so they will stop fighting, but it doesn't always help...

My sister and I after breakfast got in big trouble from mommy and she was gonna spank us, but we both ran out the back door...she chases us but she won't go in the frontyard, cause she doesn't want the neighbors to see her trying to catch us...She yells at us to "come here right now" but we try to keep running...sometimes, like today she tricks us and then we get caught.

We like to play a game called "Sailboat". You hold each others hands and lean back and go around in a circle singing "Sailboat Sailboat go so slow, sailboat sailboat go so fast, sailboat sailboat step on the gas" and then you go as fast as you can. It makes us dizzy and we usually fall to the ground laughing.

But today when we fell my sister hit her head on this rock wishingwell we have in the frontyard, and she was bleeding a whole bunch and I was very afraid. I tried to tell her she was ok but she started screaming, so I ran in to get mommy. Mommy ran out and yelled to get the nurse next door (we call her Aunt Alice, but she really isn't our aunt), so I ran over to her house. Her and mommy took my sister inside and I felt very sad and as afraid as I have ever been. I was so worried that it was all my fault ; so I went to our playhouse and sat on the floor. I waited and waited but no one ever out to tell me how she was...

I decided to run a way, but I didn't know where to run to? I was so afraid my sister was dead and it would never be the same again at my house and my daddy and mommy would hate me for sure. I took my blanket and went out into the field of tall grass, like my sister and I always used to do, before daddy built us the playhouse and I made a bed in the grass and laid down.

I thought about all the fun she and I have had and how I would miss her...and I began to cry, I cried for a very long time. I heard mommy calling me, but I was afraid to answer her and I wanted her to worry and think I ran away...cause I was gonna do that, just as soon as I figured out where to run to. She and Aunt Alice called me a bunch of times, but then I didn't hear them anymore and so I knew I had to run fast and far away...

I was hungry and thirsty and had to go poddy, but mommy always said girls don't do that outside, and so I didn't. Last I remember was seeing the first star out and making my wish on it..."First star out tonight, I wish I may I wish I might have this wish I wish I wish tonight".....

      Your story reminded of how children can get so affected and fearful. You told this one so vividly that I can't help but want to run after you myself and comfort you and tell you all is well. Glad to know though that your sister is still alive upto this day. :-)

      Gifted G-Ma...yes it is so sad and sometimes can do so much harm...adults need to be more aware of what they do...in my humble opinion...Thanks for commenting :O) Hugs

      G-Ma

      Your "little girl stories" always always calm me down. It's probably the simplicity and the honesty all over them that the act of reading just flows in one laidback motion. Sigh! Another great read G-Ma! Lurve you mostest (try beating that! LOL) :D

      I enjoyed that very much...so touching as to childhood and close siblins. It is a shame parents don't stop to think about children when they fight, just themselves.

      Candie...ha ha yes I guess you are just too sweet, had to dilute you a bit with water??? Now you would have to get in a river or the Straits....and you know maybe it was Motorboat???LOL thanks for commenting and am still looking for that cup of coffee...:O) Hugs

      It's amazing how sensitive children are to the emotions of the parents/adults around them, and the ways they try to intervene. We did the same song, but sang it "motorboat".. we would spin and laugh!!!!! I see your comment your sister is ok.. awesome.

      How's the weather up your way? Crazy hot here. The last 3 trips I've made to your town, it was raining. Probably the only rain you got that year. I consider it a community service. Makes it nicer for everyone else to go with a guarantee of no rain.
