Normally we would go for a few days without food. Oh and when I say we I mean my younger sister, who is only 5. Our parents were killed but I don’t want to get into the details.

Normally I can block them out, but this time I just couldn’t so I decided to go for a walk. So I walked for a while. And when I had decided to go back I realized I was lost.  I had gritted my teeth in annoyance, not because I was scared but because my little sister was all alone. I needed to find a way back.
