At recess, Mandy, Moon and I were in the classroom. We talked about the examination results. Some were satisfied. Some were disappointed. I said, ‘I got 46 in my English examination. I don't want to go home because my mother will be very angry and disappointed.'

I went home after school. I told my mum about my exam result and said sorry to her. However, my mum was swollen with rage and said, ‘I can't believe I have a daughter like you. All of my friends' daughters are very smart.' I was deeply hurt and angry.
At that moment, I really wanted to become a grown-up so that I did not need to sit for examinations anymore. I went into my bedroom and played with my I-Pad. Soon, my mother came in and said, ‘You need to study hard or you will not be my daughter anymore.'
I could not stand her. I packed some of my clothes when my mum went to bed. I left home sadly with tears when she fell asleep. Some of myold happy memories with my mum kept playing in my head. However, I could not forget the scene of her scolding me.
After struggling, I decided to leave. It was midnight. Only few people wandered in the streets. I felt hungry when I walked past a pizza shop. My stomach was rumbling but I did not have any money.
Suddenly, a teenager with purple and red hair walked up to me. He said, ‘Come to my home and I can treat you for dinner.' I rejected him but he did not let me go. He slapped my face. I ran away.
Fortunately, I ran into a policeman. I asked him for help. The policeman brought the teenager to the police station. I left the police station after the interview by the police.
I wanted to go back home, the safest place. However, I told myself that I should not go home. So, I walked and walked until I saw an old woman. She asked me about my parents. I told her about the reason I left home.
The old lady said I was wrong to run away from home. She said, ‘Your mum will worry a lot! Your mum did not really mean you are not her daughter. She was angry at that moment and did not realize her words hurt you so much.'
I replied to her that she should look for me everywhere if she really cared about me. Finally, I heard a familiar voice from behind. It was my mum. Iran to her and hugged her tightly.
My mum said sorry to me and promised not to pressure me so much anymore. Since then, we chatted every night. She gave me a lot of encouragement. I promised her I would study hard. I really did a great job in my final examination.
