Well, how fun for me. Some kid, claiming to be abused, a friend of my friends shows up at my apartment door looking for a place to stay. With a claim that this kid was kicked out, I called this kid's old man and found out the kid runs away quite a bit, but when I asked if he was going to pick her up, this guy was hesitant and ultimately suggested I let this 17 year old kid stay at my apartment. Likewise, a police officer had approached me a few weeks earlier about this runaway kid (cops looking for my friend.) And how fun it is, for I am this close to doing time for harboring a minor; but I can't just leave this kid out in the freezing cold with no where to go.

I tell ya, the whole world is against me.

Time to call Social Services..

If she has been abused, then they are the people to help...

If she hasnt been abused and is prone to lying about it, then do this to protect yourself.....either way, keeping her there, you are just lining up to get in real trouble.....

Well, the cops hauled the kid off, only took 3 hours of phone calls (and class starts in 45 minutes.) I feel like a total *******, though; you should've seen the look on that kid's face.

hey, you prolly don't think much of it, but it's cool that the kid came to you for help. Must think you're a nice guy and I'd agree.

>>but I can't just leave this kid out in the freezing cold with no where to go.
you have a heart :)

I cant imagine. But if its any consolation, I know what its like to do something seemingly aweful to somebody for they're own good. The kid might not understand now, but (depending on other circumstances, which I dont know all of) I imagine you may have helped her/him a lot more than you know.
