When I saw the bald guy with all the tattoos and the cut put his wallet into his money clip in his back pocket I thought about how easy this was going to be. He walked out of the liquor store and started unwrapping his new packet of cigarettes. His back was facing me, god this couldn't get any easier I thought. I pulled out my prop, a phone I found that doesn't work. I pretended to be texting on it and bumped into him.
I gasp "I'm so sorry" I tell him while I reach into his back pocket unnoticed. He grunts as a response. I give him a shy smile and walk away. When I get around the corner I take the money out of my pocket and start counting. I get to one thousand and there is still more to be counted. Never in m life have I held this much money or seen it for that matter.
I start walking down the alley way to where I have my tent set up deep into the woods. If I wasn't so dumbfounded by the amount of money I had just come into I would have noticed that I was being followed.
When I am about to head over to the clubhouse in Charming I realize I'm out of cigarettes so I stop off at the local liquor store. I walk up to the counter and get my cigarettes while inconspicuously looking around. I notice a kid who is over by the chips, she doesn't notice I'm looking at her. I pay for my cigarettes and put my money clip back into my pocket, the whole time the girl is watching. When I walks out and start unwrapping my cigarettes, the girl bumps into and I feel her hand in my back pocket. I let her get away with it cause I want to see what she is going to with it.
She walks around the money and is stunned. I smirk and finally notice the girl is really skinny and a little scruffy looking. She probably has never seen that much money in her whole life. She starts to walk down the alley way she was standing in. I follow her she keeps walking towards the woods. I wonder when she is going to turn and head back towards town, but she doesn't she just keeps walking. As we get farther into the woods I am really getting curious as to were we are going. Maybe she knows I'm following her. I am so caught up in following her I accidentally snap a twig underneath my heavy boot. I stop and hold my breathe wondering if she noticed, but she keep walking. I let my breathe out and continue to follow her.
I hear a twig snap behind me. And I keep walking so as not to let on I know someone is following me. I listen hard to the footsteps as they land with a soft thud on the ground. It sounds like heavy boots, like motorcycle boots. shit I think and start to speed up. I make a quick right to a tree I know is easy to climb and has a bunch of leaves so I could hide.
I climb up the tree extremely fast. When I get into the leaves enough so I can't be seen I wait for my pursuer. Just as he is about to come upon my tree I throw the money down. It lands on the floor right where his foot would be if he took another step. He looks up seemingly right at me but I know he can't see me because of all the leaves.
He bends down and puts the money back in his pocket. He looks around some more and then walks away. I wait a few more seconds and then finally climb down, but before my feet touch the ground I am swept up into a pair of strong arms. I try and struggle free but the arms are stronger than me. Then the voice belonging to the arms says in my ears
"stop" his tone would make me pee in my pants, but that goes against my survival instincts as does not fighting back, so I continue to struggle against the mans hold
"I'm not kidding little girl, stop" he says
"no!" I snarl out
"I'm not going to hurt you" he says in a less predatory manner, for some reason I trust him and stop struggling
"show me where you were going to go" he says. I turn as much as I can with him still holding me. I give him a questioning look
"just do it" he says. I cautiously nod my head. He places me on the ground but keeps ahold of my hand.
I lead him back to my tent. He looks at it with an unreadable expression. And then he looks around the area for a couple of seconds.
"pack all your shit up" he says in a gruff voice. I look at him like he must be crazy. I shake my head no. "either you do it or I do it for you, it's your choice". I stand there frozen, why does he want me to pack my stuff. He huffs in annoyance and starts packing my stuff in my backpack.
After seeing that this little kid is living in a tent in the middle of the woods I couldn't just leave her here, god knows what would happen to her plus my mom didn't raise me that way. When I tell the girl to pack her stuff up she freezes. When I go into the tent fully I see a little pile of clothes and a sleeping bag along with a pink Barbie backpack, how old is this kid. I finish packing her stuff easily. I take her hand and start to walk back to my bike. When I start walking I notice that she is dragging her feet, so I stop walking and kneel down to her level, her eyes go wide and she stumbles back a little bit but she doesn't fall cause I'm still holding her hand
"I'm not gonna hurt you ok?" I say to her, she looks like she is thinking for a minute. She opens her mouth and says the last thing I would ever expect to hear come out of this little girls mouth she says "bullshit" it sounds so wrong in her child like voice. I am to stunned for a minute to say anything.
"why don't you believe me" I ask her. She thinks for another minute
"what's your name" she asks me "Happy" I answer her
"what's your name" I ask her "Kat" she answers I nod my head "how old are you" I ask her. She looks at me for a minute and then answers 13 I nod my head again.
"ok let's go" I say to her and this time she walks right next to me.
Happy and I walk all the way back to his motorcycle he straps my backpack to the seat and gets on he pats the spot in front of him and says "get on" I stare at him wide eyed but does as he says. When I get on he straps a helmet on me and we take off.
