One sunny summer day a 16 year old girl ran away from home. Her name one Layla. She ran off into the woods by her house about a mile or two down the road. She took a backpack filled with food, water, a phone, and a map of her town. As she sat in the woods crying one of her friends saw her. His name was Jake. Jake asked her if she was okay and what was making her upset. Layla told Jake everything about her parents fighting all the time and how they never have time for her. She even told him that she was starting to get depressed because of all the bullying at school and how she has to come home to her parents fighting. Jake knew she was hurting , So he got in his backpack and pulled out a small green box and he gave it to Layla. She slowly stopped crying and opened the box. She saw the musical balls, she smiled because it reminded her of the pair her dad got her before Layla's started fighting all the time. Jake smiled because he saw Layla smile. Jake told Layla that she could come to there house to live with them. She said yes then she thanked him. Jake told Layla that everything will be better when we get to my house.
After a few years Jake and Layla had spent a lot of time together and they had gotten more comfortable with each other and then one day Jake asked Layla if she wanted him to be her boyfriend.
One very hot summer day Jake and Layla decided to go to the beach to watch the sunset. They went to the beach just a mile down the road away. Layla packed a basket so they could have a picnic. She packed some food and drinks. When Jake and Layla got to the beach they ate right before the sunset. Jake and Layla watched as the sunset over the horizon. They walked back to their house. When they got home they watched movies until they fell asleep. The next day Jake's parents asked him if he could go to the store for them to pick up groceries they needed. Jake said yes and asked Layla if she wanted to go with him
she said yes. So Jake and Layla went to the store about 2 or 3 miles down the road. Layla saw her parents she went up to them and tried to talk to them. They didn't realize who she was because it has been two years since they last saw her. When Layla tried talking to her parents they didn't listen because they were to busy fighting. She thought to herself i doubt they even knew i was gone. The next thing Jake knew Layla ran out of the store crying. Jake knew Layla was hurting but it was much more than that. Layla also felt so upset and worst of all she felt betrayed by her own family. “Are you okay?” Asked Jake
“Those people were my family they didn't even realize who i was. They didn't recognize their own daughter. Jake this is why i ran away from home. Between them fighting and me getting bullied all the time. I couldn't handle it anymore. “ said Layla
Jake just hugged her saying nothing.He knew she was hurting. Jake seen Layla's parents leave jake then says “Let's go back into the store and get what my parents want and go home”
Layla said “Okay Jake let's just hurry up and head home.
Jake and Layla went back into the store and picked up everything they needed and then they went back to Jake’s parents house. When Jake and Layla got home she went straight upstairs to her room and she looked at her family's photo. Layla smiled because this was her family before they ever started fighting. She also got a little sad because she missed the family that they use to be. Layla and Jake went for a walk in town. They found missing posters than she realized her parents did care about her. Layla called the number on the poster and she told them what happened. Than all of the sudden she realized that the people at the store weren't her parents. When Layla went to visit them they actually were happy and not fighting. Layla was happy that she got to see her parents and for once the weren't fighting. Layla told her parents about Jake and how nice he has been to her and how they really connected. Than he gets down on one knee and then he asks “Will you marry me Layla”
Layla smiles and says yes. After that Jake and Layla are as happy as they could ever be. Layla told her parents everything that thoses to have been throw. Then everyone lived as happy as a fish in water.
