It was hot out. Too damn hot for my liking.
I looked up at the sky, squinting at the sun as it beat down with no
mercy, perched above the buildings. Even though I was sitting against a
building, shaded by its small, overhanging arch, it wasn’t enough to stop me
I was thirsty. Really thirsty. Like insanely thirsty and possibly dying
from it, but I didn’t have it in me to go on the trek to find more water.
San Francisco was busy, and there were endless amounts of people
walking up and down the street, wearing everything from business attire to
sundresses and tote bags. Some of them dropped money by my feet, but I still
My old house was only a few miles away, but I refused to return there.
Even if it meant saving my own life.
I knew I needed a job. A month on the street was a long time for a
twenty-year-old. But not many people were willing to hire someone with
little job experience and no reliable way to get to work.
I’d applied at various restaurants around the corner I’d claimed, but it
was also hard for people to get a hold of someone who didn’t have a phone or
I reached over into my small duffel bag, the only bag I had. I dug
through my clothes, and a small burst of excitement rippled through me when
I found the small box of granola bars, but when I lifted the box, it was empty.

My bottom lip trembled, and I knew that if I had enough water in my
body right now, I would cry.
I studied my surroundings, trying to do whatever it took to get my mind
off myself. I caught sight of a young girl walking between her parents. She
was holding their hands, swinging them back and forth as she looked around
at the buildings, her pink dress swaying.
A twinge of anguish grew in the pit of my stomach, and I forced myself
to look away. Within another minute, the anguish was accompanied by
If my parents were here, I wouldn’t be sleeping on this raggedy
I shook my head, forcing those thoughts away. I didn’t want to allow
myself to become more miserable, but misery was impossible to avoid when
nothing had gone right in my life since I was sixteen.
Just then, I could see a man out of the corner of my eye, heading in my
direction. I didn’t have to look directly at him to know it was the same man
that had walked by numerous times since I’d made this corner my new home.
I kept my head down as he approached and took his keys out. I was
trying my best not to look up at him, to avoid showing him the despair on my
face, but I could feel his eyes on me, and for some reason, I wondered what
color they were.
