Raven silently threw her head back in frustration. her emotions that she held for the longest time felt like it was going to over flow. First her Boyfriend cheats on her then she just suddenly has to leave the place she's always known for the fact she wasn't apparently being raised right. She's gone through this for almost two years. Why didn't anyone actually even say anything until now.

"Raven, it will be fine." someone said trying to console her. She knew it wasn't going to be fine. She was going to live with practically a stranger.

"How would you know? It's not that you've ever been forced to live with a stranger!" Raven through her arms up in frustration

. trying hard not to through her backpack on the ground. Trying so hard not to throw anything. She took big breaths. Raven says the look of her best friend after saying that. She felt guilty but it was true. She doesn't know. Both of her parents love her. They give her the world. While mine could careless at this point. My mom can barely even think straight half the time that she is sobber. My father is already gone and died. Really the main ones that raised me were my older sister and a few people.

However even my sister would have to go away. spend time with her friends. Once She actually goes out and lives the life she's always wanted to live. Going out, having a boyfriend, someone to actually give her the right of day and not look at her sisters like everyone else does.

The only one that people look at is never her. Ryder, her youngest sister has always held us. Has the perfect grade and everything that Raven doesn't have. But there is one this she didn't get. To meet their dad. River Their older sister is always the outgoing one. The one everyone notices before even sparing a glance at her.

"Raven!" she heard her friend say. At this point she wanted to say sorry, but it never came out. This was the first time that she could not say anything back. The first time she could not be the one to apologize. Raven looked down at her hands to see her hand clinched into a fist. She had to go. She looked at her friend. She looked around the class. Then, I got up and ran. The only thing that felt right. "I'm sorry" she whispered as she left. Not looking back once. It felt right though. Like nothing felt any better. All the emotions that she held on. The things that went on that she had no control over. Everything was simply fine. Everything was okay. Everything seemed like it was supposed to be that way.
