1: Escape From Home By Leana
2: I look at the blazing sun and think that today might be the day I can get out of here. I feel like I have been running for miles. As I turn the corner of the biggest pyramid I see my father on our camel. "Trying to escape, are you?" he says to me unhappily. "No father I was -" he cuts me off. "Yes you were!" he yells to me.
4: My father drags me threw are store and up to my room. I see my younger brother under my bed. My father yells to me "You have tried to escape me to many times!" he pulls out a knife and attempts to stab me. "STOP!" My father drops the knife and pulls my brother Shu out of the room and down to our store.
6: I let out a sigh of relief and think to myself, I will leave tonight and take Shu with me. I go to find my mother, I see her undoing the rope that father had put Shu in. I tell her what father had almost done to me. "He was going to stab me mother! It was horrible!" I whisper to her just encase a person was around. "My goodness Anat, that is very bad!" mother whispers back. I tell her and Shu that I plan to escape tonight and that I will be taking Shu with me. So we must wait for night to come.
8: Night has come and father has fallen asleep. Mother is still awake and Shu is in my room with me. Mother comes in and tells me that its time for me and Shu to leave. We sneak down the stairs and into the family store. We say good-bye to our mother an walk off into the night. We are half way threw town and Shu says to me "Anat, will we ever see mother again?" "Well, Shu, I don't think we will," I say with tears coming to my eyes.
10: Night has become very late and Shu is getting very tired. We find some ground to rest on till sunlight comes. We awake in the morning and it looks like some of the things that we need to survive have been stolen. We take out some of the talents that mother gave us.
12: We bought some wheat,barley and water to last us for a few days. Shu gulps down some of the water we have and we keep walking farther and farther. I think we are about three towns away from home. This very nice man comes to us and asks "Who are you?" "I and Anat and this is my younger brother Shu. And you are?" "I am Seth. Where are you going?" "We are not sure."
14: "Well, I am heading a few towns over. Would you like to come with me?' I look and Shu. It seems like he does not care so we head off with Seth.
16: We start to walk with Seth and he asks me why we are leaving our family. I tell him about my father and how he has tried to stab me and how he tied up my brother from hiding under my bed. He seems to look discussed. I tell him how great full my mother was to let us leave my father. I ask him why he was leaving his town. He replys "I am a slave for the Pharaoh"
18: "Your a slave!" I shout. "Shhhhh" He whispers "I am a secret slave." "Your a what?" If anybody found out I left the kingdom I would be in horrific trouble. "But why are you leaving?" "He is horrible to us. Yes I know thats what hes supposed to do to us but I can handle it anymore"
20: We keep walking until night so we find a place to rest. When morning comes I see that Shu and Seth are gone. I am quite scared that maybe then were killed or taken away so I look around the town that. I have never been her before so I don't know where I am going. I find them and they have been stabbed in the heart. I feel a tear roll down my face. So I walk off not knowing what to do and I never see them again.
