“Somebody turn the lights on, Somebody tell me what’s wrong I’d be lying if I told u losing u was something I could handle…” I had been driving for about two and a half hours the highways were clear I had the windows all the way done singing along with my I-pod.
In a matter of seconden I could see cars slowing down on the highway in Kansas and as the cars started to stop I could see a long line of cars in front of me. I can’t believe this I was finally going to make it to the volgende state before the traffic started happening.
“Whoa” I jumped at the vibrating in my right pants pocket. I couldn’t get my phone out of my pocket fast enough. ‘Good I really need to get a ring tone and get rid of the vibrating.” I told myself as I struggled to get the phone out of my pocket. “Ha, Got it.” before answering my cell I looked at the name and it was my best friend Katelyn.
“Hey what’s up? I haven’t heard from u in a long, long time.” I didn’t really have any time to say any thing ells before she interrupted me. “Your going to need to come home pagina in a couple months.” I was confused and a little scared. “Why is everything ok?” I could hear she had a smile on her face know. “Oh ya everything’s great because Joe purposed to me last night when we were at the beach.” I was out of my zitplaats, stoel jumping with joy I couldn’t believe it.
I’ve been vrienden with Kate since we were in fists grade. Her and Joe had been dating since they were freshman in high school and they would always say that they were going to get married after they got out of high school and well all thought they were joking but I guess not.
“I can’t believe it.” “Why we always told u guys it would happen.” I was almost in tears. “Now u just have to find some one.” I was laughing to myself at that. “Ya okay and how many guys did I datum in high school? One, and that didn’t work out because I was to much into my work so I don’t know.” “Okay I love u Anna but lighten up, hallo I have to go I’ll call u later k?” “K Bye.” “Bye”
An uur later I moved about half a mile it was getting tiring I was about to grab a couple of clothes and things I needed and stuff them into my an empty suitcase and walk the rest of the way to the motel. But just as I was about to I could see the front of the line and it was starting to verplaats faster. I could see the cops at the top, boven of the line flagging his hands to go forward.
I was just about to pass the cop and verplaats vooruit, voorwaarts when I saw him. I never really saw him I saw him in my flash back it was guy at the end of the woods. But he seemed meer real. He had short straight black hair that pushed to one side that was partly covering his eyes. He looked really pale, he had dark circles around his eyes. He was wearing a long black jas and a pare of black jeans with nice shoes. I couldn’t see his overhemd, shirt because his jas was buttoned up.
I stopped to get up but the officer put his hand on my door and told me that I had to get back in. I sat back down and looked back at the edge of the forest, he was know where in site. I started to pull away and once again I was back on my way to LA.
How was it that it was baking hot out and there was know clouds in site so the sun was beating down on everything. So how is it that he was wearing a jas and long pants? I was starting to get confused and I was trying to focus on other things but it was hard to we all u could think about was this guy that was not only hunting u in your flash back vision but in real life. I was asking my self so many questions. Like do I really know him but don’t remember, were is he from, why is he hunting me, should I tell any one; is any of this even real? He was so handsome, no he was beautiful.
I finally just let it go and moved on with it. I couldn’t believe my best friend was getting married. Okay I need to change the station I’m tiered of listening to the same thing over and over. I pressed the button over and over and just stopped not finding a good station. “Now playing The Click Five, Kidnap My Heart. Kiss 108 u number one station for everything. “Hey girl what’s u name? I think I caught u looking my way…” I looked down at the station and was shocked I loved this group when I was thirteen but then Eric went solo and I stayed with him but I still like the group with out him just not as much. God I remember when Taking 5 came out on the TV and I tapped it and then watched it over and over again and my parents got pissed that I was hogging the living room TV so they bought it for me. I wonder if I still have, If I packed it. “You’ve got to hold me tighter cause I’m a fighter…” I stared singing along with the radio.
Hours later I found a motel, it was nice not like a hotel but the best one I’ve seen since I left home. I spent about two hours searching threw my boxes and found a bunch of my videos and dragged it into the room. I rummaged threw it and found a bunch of videos that had been tapped when I lived with my grandparents in Missouri. So I popped one in that zei lake party. I grabbed some pop-corn and watched it. I was laughing my head off but as my grandma turned the camera to sit down she faced it towards the forest and I could swear I saw someone there. I jumped when I saw it making the pop-corn fly every where. I crawled to the TV thinking about rewinding it and a couple minuets later I decided to do it. When I came to the point I paused it.
When I paused it I just stared at it terrified. It was the same guy the exact same guy the clothes were the same he didn’t look younger then when I saw him today, if I really saw him if it wasn’t just my imagination playing around with me.
I was just staring at the paused TV screen when I jumped as my phone vibrated in my pants pocket.
“Hello.” I zei still fixed on the TV screen I was meer concerned with the fact that a guy - that I could swear is real – is fallowing me around the US.
“How is everything going so far, your father and I haven’t heard from u in a long time? Oh and I don’t know if u know but Katelyn is getting married.” I was still staring at the paused TV screen. “Ya I know.” I shook my self back to the real world. ‘Umm every thing’s going great I stopped to she Grandma and Grandpa yesterday and I saw Mitch I caught up with him, Grandpa made his famous Zucchini Salad. Nothing ells has really been going on.” I was still caught up in the picture on my screen but I was trying to focus on the conversation I was having with my mother. “Okay well do u want to speak to your father?” “I would love to but I’m sort of in the middle of something right now, I’ll call u tomorrow if I have time okay tell dad I love him okay bye.” And I hung up.
That night it took me forever to fall asleep, I looked over at my clock and it zei one thirty and so I got up and grabbed my I-pod and collapsed on to my bed I plugged myself in searching for something to listen to “Artists, A*Teens, Aaron Carter, All American Rejects, All Time Low, Backstreet Boys, Beyonce, Boys like Girls, Carrie Underwood, ha here it is The Click Five how about Just The Girl.” I have to stop talking to myself,
I listened to The Click Five and some of Eric Dill’s new songs and I started to fall asleep. Not a good idea.
I was back at the lake but know one was there but me. I walked along the dock and stuck my feet into the opposite side of the lake that u swim in. I stated humming a song, then I heard some leaves ruffle on the ground and turned towards the kust-, oever and I saw him again at the end of the forest I turned my head back out towards the lake and looked down at the water trying to catch my breath and then I saw his reflection in the water. There he was looking down at me. I was about to jump into the water an swim away when I started asking myself vragen but the one that stood out the most was how did he get over here so fast.
I don’t know how of when but I was standing up know looking down at my wet feet. He put his hand under my chin and lifted my head up, I could see his eyes know they were gorgeous, they were a light blue. Almost like the sky was today. I wasn’t thinking now, I was just blank then he was gone. I just sat down on the dock and stuck my feet into the water again. Something tickled the bottom of my feet but I didn’t think twice about it I just stayed there and then something grabbed my ankle and dragged me down I was know fighting for my lungs to meet the air but it wasn’t happening I couldn’t take it. I was being dragged down deeper then the deepest part of the lake went. I just started breathing because I needed the air but all I was breathing was the cold water, not fresh water but salt water.
I woke up screaming for air. I sat up in the bed for a couple minuten just breathing. “It was just a dream Anna don’t worry.” I told myself. I was sweating and I was really cold. I turned my head and my clock zei two thirty.
I figured I wouldn’t really get any meer sleep with the dream, nightmare I had just had. So I got up and grabbed some clothes for the dag and my I-pod and boom-box. I turned on my favoriete and put the douche on hot. I was now shivering I could feel it moving down my spine and it was irritating because it wouldn’t go away. After and uur it was fading and I got out and brushed my teeth and put my hair up into two French braids. I put on my jean shorts and a t-shirt and a hoodie. I grabbed my box of videos and my little bag and stuffed then into the car and started for Colorado.
Today I couldn’t put my windows down because it was raining and hailing and then sunny and then did it all again.
After three of four hours of driving I stopped at a Dunkin Donates and grabbed two aardbei donates and a large coffee. I sat down and watched the local news on the flat screen they had hanged on the wall. “Today’s going to be a rainy, hail, sunny dag tomorrow will be sunny and in the nineties,” the weather man zei over and over again until it was branded in are brains.
They talked about a car crash that had killed two teenagers because of drunk driving, there was also a wild brand that had taken out three neighborhoods. There was some news about the president and what he was doing wrong and what he was doing right. But what really caught my ear was that there was a kid at the high school that had a gun and was holding kids hostage. His name was Billy Carter.
I was done eating but I stayed to watch the news. An uur later they had every kid out of the school but the ten that he was keeping. There were two kids that he had shot and they were rushed to the hospital. a half and uur later a cop caught him in the window and he was shot.
They didn’t tell us if he had died of not so I got into my car and started driving to a grocery store. I picked up a six pack of water bottles and some easy to make food and some snacks. I turned on the radio when an Akon song was interrupted “Billy Carter was shot this morning and was killed. He died on his hospital bed.” I didn’t listen to the rest I changed the station.
I know how his family’s felling right know. One of my vrienden in my high school had depression and did the same thing though he wasn’t shot they were in wood working class and he turned his back for a seconde and some kid stabbed him in the back he didn’t even make it to the hospital he died right there. I remember what he zei to me he told me to never let any one push me around and that if I want something bad enough I needed to go for it.
I still hate that people say he was a bad person but he wasn’t he was a good person he just had a hard time with life and he made a bad decision and died for it. God I didn’t go to school for a week every thing I did made me think of him. But I finally went to school and when people started picking on me I fired back and that’s how I got a good job at such a young age.
This was an easy ride to California today the highway was clear know one was on it just me and a couple of other cars. So door the end of the dag I was Nevada. I didn’t really stay that long in Nevada I just stayed and talked to some of the locals at a little diner right off the highway. I got a free meal from the women that owned it.
Her and her husband had five kids but one of them died from cancer two and a half years ago, he was only nineteen. I asked about the family and my new boss told me that only way to California to try to get as many stories as I could so I could have my first artikel in the new paper. So I got some information from my grandparents some from the news on the kid at the high school and I ask about there family and I told them that it would be in the California new paper. They gave me there address so I could send them a copy of it and because of all of that they gave me a free meal.
I got off of the California highway and right there was the beach. It only took me a couple of minuets to find my house. It was right on the beach. After I unpacked all my boxes I ran to the strand and just walked up and down it. Before I realized it, it was dark out. So I walked back to my new house. I can finally start my own life on my own.
