about this story

I ran out of the highly guarded building quicker than lightning. At least, that's what it felt like. I put the USB into my bag and swung it over my head. I heard shouts and gunfire echo behind me as I ran. I looked behind me for a split second to see if they were following. Two of their best men were running with guns, trying to shoot me. I barely caught one last glimpse of the building I stole government information from as I turned the corner. I silently whispered my sweet farewells to that place and kept running. I lost the guys with guns by the graveyard finally, so I decided to break there and put on a disguise. The disguise was so I could leave the city easily without anyone noticing. I ran behind a grave and quickly put it on. I got up afterwards, grabbed my new bag and put the USB in it, and paid respects to the dead person I had stood on top of. I kept running until I reached the beach, this was so it would be harder to find me since the beach was so crowded. I ran immediately to the smallest crowd since I would be expected to be in one of the larger crowds. I ran up to one of the nearest kids that looked around my age and started talking to them. They were surprisingly welcoming and let me join in on their games. I watched and waited as a bunch of armed men scanned the beach and then left. After that, I ran off, but the boy I had just pretended to be friends with followed me. I didn't realize he was behind me, and ran right out of the city boundaries to the closest airport. Even as the sun started to set, he followed me. He followed me as I bought a ticket with my fake ID. He followed onto the plane, I don't know how though. He followed me as I went over to the next country to hide. And he followed me to my secret home. Once I finally turned around and realized he had followed me all the way there, it had been five days and I was really surprised. I told him to run off and go home. But he didn't. I'm glad he didn't, for this was the birth of a grand adventure and friendship. Don't question how, because I don't know. It just kind of happened, and I guess that's what makes it even more amazing.
