Running for Love
Hi My name is Maria and I just wanted to share my runaway story with people!! So here goes!
I met this guy in school who I fell in love with. My parents didn't really approve of us going out because he was of a diffrent race. Me and this guy are in love so much so we decide to runaway b/c that was the only way to be together. I contacted my mom and everything about it, and how I would only come home if she would quit being racist. Well, me and my parents finally came up with a bargain. My mom told me that if I come home that she would let me see my boyfriend.
So I decided to come home. Well my mom let me and him date for like a week. Me and my family go out of town every other weekend to my old home town in Ironton Ohio. That weekend we went out to Ironton. I was having a great time and I was really looking forward to coming home and seeing my guy.
Well, Sunday came around and my mom brought me downstairs to tell me that she was leaving me there in Ironton to live with my grandparents because she didn't want me to date my boyfriend anymore! That made me so mad, but instead of blowing up about it I just played along with her plan and told her I was ok with it.
So she left me their and when my grandparents went to bed I snuck down stairs and called my boyfriend and told him what was going on and what had happened. I told him that I was going to run away again! So he was cool with it and he decided to run away with me again. This was our 2nd time running away. I can't really remember what happened the 2nd time we ran, but I do remember that he went home and I decided to stay gone and he was going to help me stay gone.
So he would let me sleep in his car until his parents went to sleep, and then sneak me in the house to sleep in his sister's old room with him. One day I was sleeping in his car waiting for him to call on the cell phone to tell em it was ok for me to come in the house, but something happened. A cop came over to his house and told his mom and dad that I was in the car. How the cop knew I had no idea!
The cop took me home and my parents filed unrolie on me so I got a court date. My parents then forbided me to have any contact with him at all. They called my grandma to come down and babysit me while they went to work. Well, when my parents would go to work I would sneak and call my guy, and I told him I was going to run away again. He told me this time not to run because he knew it wasn't what I wanted, but I did it anyway. I am still gone today but this time I'm on my own. He wouldn't come with me this time. That's my story!
