Bad Luck

Some people just have bad luck. Some just fall into bad luck. Me for instance, I fell into bad luck. I was leaning in front of mum's and sis's falling down house, when a well to do girl walked by.


 Hands in my pocket, I was feeling depressed. The Great Depression. Good name for it.
My feet were caked with dirt.

She looked up and caught my eye, and  I looked down. She stoped and her skirt swooshed. "What's your name?" she asked. I thought for a moment. "Tom," I said. I felt bad about lying, but it wasn't good for a girl to work like a boy, dress like a boy, talk like a boy, and have a girl's name. She looked into my blue eyes. "You have pretty eyes Tom." She smiled, but I felt sick. She thought I was a boy, which was good! I quickly tucked my curly hair under my cap. "You down on your luck Tom?" I nodded. "You hungry?" I nodded vigorously. I looked down at the cracked earth.
I closed my eyes. I was so hungry it hurt. 
"Come on. I'll get you some food." My eyes flung open. Food! 
She took me to her house. "Wait here Tom, I'll be right back." So I waited. 
When she brought me food, I ate. I stuffed my mouth full, and my pockets. For my mum and sis. I told her goodbye. I felt bad about not telling her that I was a girl, we could of been friends. Oh well. Tomorrow we would probably move. Maybe we'll meet again......
Hope you enjoyed Bad Luck! I might do more.
