THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME
Today Vicky Samson came home from school at 4 o’clock. She watched TV for half an hour. Then she did her homework. She’s working hard at the moment because she’s got an exam soon. After dinner, while she was helping with the washing up, she talked to her parents about a problem she had been having at school.
It was a normal day, but it was a kind of day that makes Vicky and e parents happy. “I can’t believe it”, says Vicky. “Four months ago was living in a cardboard under a railway bridge in London.
Last October Vicky ran away from home. How did it all start?
"I hated school and I didn’t see the point of it all. My mum didn’t understand me. We only spoke to each other when we were arguing. One day I just couldn’t stand it any more".
On that October day, Vicky didn’t go to school. She went to the station and caught the train to London. “At first it was really fantastic! There were all the bright lights, theatres, shops and some really interesting people. I had to sleep on the streets but I didn’t mind. I was free — no school, no homework, no parents”. But soon there were no food and no money either. Vicky was cold, hungry and miserable, but she survived until one night about a week before Christmas. ”1 was walking- down the street, when I looked at someone’s front window. There was a girl there just like me. She was decorating a Christmas tree”, I thought. If I were at home, I’d be decorating our tree now. “Then I just couldn’t help it. I just sat down and on the pavement and cried and cried”. Luckily for Vicky, the man who lived in the house, Mr. Robinson, came home while she was sitting there. He took Vicky into the house and Mrs. Robinson gave her something to eat. “They were so kind. I told them my whole story. They offered to pay for my ticket home, but I didn’t want that. I thought my parents would be angry”.
But the next day she was back home. While Vicky was in the house, Mrs. Robinson went next door and telephoned the police in Binning-ham. Three hours later Vicky’s father arrived to bring her home. “It was the best Christmas present I’d ever had”, said Mrs. Samson.
