It had all started in in the year of 2018, my mother and father wanted to start the year stealing because my family was very poor. And right down the block a new store just opened, it was a jewerly store. My parents was also murdering many innocent lives and committed lots of crime. Not following the law. Everyone in my family is DEAD, I literally have no one to take me in and raise me. That's why I am adopted.

In case you were wondering my name is, Charlotte Peppermint. I am 15 and 1/2 years old. And I am totally different from my parents, Olivia Peppermint and Jack Peppermint. I am the type of teenage girl that is interested in caligraphy, art and drawing. Just like a normal teenage girl would do. For the past 1 and a 1/2 years, I had lived in a orphanage home. My experience there was a totally different story. I had went their when I was 14 years old. I knew nobody and didn't really have friends. And when I mean that I didn't have friends, I had absolutely no friends. Their was only 3 teenagers my age. The names were Avery Miller, Aiden Morgan and Zoey Patterson. Avery was a very shy, but smart girl. Aiden was an adventurous and social boy. And last but not least Zoey was a talkative and athletic girl. All three teens were either 13, 14 or 15. So, it was good, now to think about it, that someone my age would take the time for me. And say "Hello!" My orphanage had nice staff, comfortable beds, enjoyable meals and a huge piece of land, the place was built on. But, there was one problem, I dislike someone very much and that was, Mrs. Adam. Mrs. Adam was the meanest, most rudest and most evilest person I know. Well except my mother and father. But Mrs. Adam was so mean that when the children got their awards she would take it right away from them. She would also have detention for kids not doing their manditory chores. But, my overall experience at the orphanage was a once in a life time experience. And now I'm going to tell you who and how I got released from there.

Right now, I live with the Brown's family. Mrs and Mr. Brown have two girls, one boy and a baby chipmunk. Mrs. Brown is very nice, but on the other hand Mr. Brown is mean. Mrs. Brown is a libraian and Mr. Brown is a Police officer.

The day I met the Brown's family, I thought they were quite nice. But, I mistaken wrong, Mr. Brown abuse's mean everyday when I come home from school. For example, He yanks my hair, slaps me, and whips me. I'm too scared to report him. Because he is in the gang, and even though he is a cop, no one has caught him. Mrs. Brown doesn't even know. The only reason he adopted me was to get more income in his annually renewence. The thing is with Mr. Brown is that he thinks that he is getting paid a little amount. That is why he is selling a handfully of drugs to make extra cash. So, thats why I, Olivia am going to put a stop to this.

I want to become independent in the world. To take care of myself and find out what I want to become when I'm a little older. In fact, Today is the day that I run away from the Brown's family and never return to their home. To live on my own, and escape this horrible life that I have to live.

Right now I am 16 years old. I did run away, and the cops found me less than 15 hours. So, I returned to the Brown's. And boy did I get a punishment, I got all my electronics taken away. Later that week, I took the Brown's to court and said "Mr. Brown is the one person who caused it all wrong. He abused me secretly...sold drugs to get extra cash...and he is just an evil person. The rest of the Brown's were the opposite, they were nice and kind. Never had a problem with. So, in my preference I think Mr. Brown should be in jail for life." So the judge said "it is only fair that Mr. Brown goes to jail for all those charges against him". So, Mr. Brown ended up in jail for life.

My name is now Charlotte Patterson, because my friend Zoey had got adopted and so did I! Now Zoey and I are Best friends but not only best friends, but sisters forever.

It has been two full months that I had lived with the Patterson's. They are the best family I could ever ask for. I am so grateful that they love me, care about me, think about me. And most of all they let me be Independent.

As you can see folks, the story is not put to an ending, because there is also a story to tell. Their is always a new beginning, a new adventure to tell.
