The next day, she ate small scraps of food trying to conserve as much as she could. Snow swirled her and the bitter cold wrapped around her feet as she ran. As she ran through a dark, cold, damp ally she found eyes filled with fear staring up at her. Slowly, she got closer, finding a filthy dog, scared and hurt. Quickly, she grabbed a thick rope from her bag and tied a loop in it. Then, Ayla slipped it around the worried dog’s neck.

“It’s ok, I'm not going to hurt you,” she whispered.
Ayla slid down the wall and sat down by the dog. She gently ran her fingers through the dogs fur; under layers of dirt she found grey fur. Ayla decided to call her Sky. She felt stronger now that she had a companion by her side. Ayla grasped the rope tightly and for a while they spent days running and nights hiding. Then, one day she was walking through a neighborhood when a girl called out hi to her. Ayla looked up at the girl who was wearing bright blue jeans and a sparkling shirt and back down at her tattered jeans and beat up sneakers.
There was a perfect blanket of snow covering the streets of Maine. Ayla stared out the frosty window wishing she could go outside and be alone or with her parents again in their little house drinking hot chocolate and eating cookies by the warm fire. Tears trickled down her face as she thought of being with them. Ayla sat patiently waiting for the other girls in her room to wake up, even though she desperately wanted to go downstairs, though she knew she would get punished. So she sat there and waited, and sat there and waited some more until an hour had passed and she couldn’t take it any longer. She crept down the creaky wooden stairs quietly, tiptoed through the hall, and stepped out the door into the snow shutting it silently behind her. Ayla would have been out there for more than five minutes if it wasn’t for the security camera guarding the front door. Mrs. Resmen (the orphanage director) crept outside just as secretly as Ayla. Then, she grabbed Ayla’s arm and pulled her inside.

“You are not to go out of your room until I tell you,” Mrs. Resmen yelled.

“I- well-I just wanted,” Ayla struggled to find words as she tried to get out of Mrs. Resmen’s arms.
“Get back to your room,” she demanded.
