8. "Get Away!"

 

I sat on the porch swing, waiting for Caleb to come home. I saw headlights pulling into the driveway out the corner of my eye. I heard the car door shut and Caleb stomped up the porch steps. I just sat there swinging, staring off in space.

 

Caleb blocked my view and stood in front of me as he asked "What are you doing out here Allison? It's cold, come inside."

 

He laid his hand on the swing and stopped it. I stood up and just stared in his green eyes. He stared back and asked "What's wrong Allison? Why are you acting like that? What happened at the hospital?"

 

I just wanted silence.

 

I snaked my arms around his neck and whispered in his ear "She passed away."

 

He picked me up and I wrapped my legs around his waist as he carried me in the house. My tears were soaking his shirt.

 

He went up the stairs and sat me down in the hall. We both changed our clothes. I met him in the bedroom after slipping on my pajamas. I closed the bathroom door behind me and leaned against it. The more I thought about what she said to me before she died, the more I cried. I tried not to think about it but it just came running back in my mind. I crumbled to pieces and just started crying, sobbing this time. Caleb came over to comfort me and tried to hug me.

 

"Get away!" I screamed as I furiously pushed him away.

 

He didn't say a word. He just looked shocked. He stared at me in surprise.

 

"Well what are you waiting for? Get out!" I screamed at him with tears in my eyes as I pointed to the door.

 

He listened to me and walked out of the room. I slid down the door and sat on the floor crying. What had I just done? That wasn't me. I have never talked to Caleb that way before, let alone push him that agressively. I cried for hours until I went downstairs to apologize.

 

He was sleeping peacefully on the sofa and I usually don't wake him up but what I did was wrong and I had to make up for it.

 

I laid down on the sofa next to him. I was on my right side facing his body. He woke up to due to the movement on me lying on the sofa. He opened his tired eyes and saw me, then put his hand around my waist and pulled me close. "I am so sorry. I don't know why I reacted like that" I whispered.

 

"You're upset. I understand. It's not a big deal" He replied.

 

"I love you."

 

"I love you more Allison. I love you more" He replied as he kissed me goodnight.

 

He closed his eyes and fell asleep. I could feel his steady breathing on my skin.
