How did I get here?

Over the course of the last year, Reed Johnson's life has made some interesting twists and turns, and sadly, very few of them were for the better. Now, to get her away from the scenes that provoked her post-traumatic stress, her father has chosen to move the family back home to Nazareth in Pennsylvania.
Both old and new friends quickly start to make an impact on her life, and pretty soon, Reed is caught up in a web of drama while dealing with a lot of stuff herself. With an already fragile mental health, who knows how she'll end up?


25. New York?


The next day before Leo came in for training Lara told me that she needed to talk to me and my family tonight. "Sure. You can just ride home with me when we've rounded up here." "Ok." she said just as Leo pushed trough the doors. Again we practised long and hard but in the end we were both exhausted and he ended up dropping me beacuse his arms were so tired. I fell to the ground with a loud thump. "Shit Reed! I'm so sorry are you allright?" He said and helped me up. "Yeah I'm fine don't worry." "I think it's time to wrap it up for today guys." Lara said. "You both did great. I think we're ready for next week. You don't have to come in tomorrow." "Ok" we both said at the same time and collected our things.

At the house I told Lara to go to the kitchen. I gave her the directions and went about the house to find everyone. When we were all on chairs around the table in the kitchen Lara started talking. "So I know your opinion on sending Reed to England and I admit that it was a terrible idea. But she has gotten an offer from the Academy of Ballet in New York. It is an offer that will last as long as you want it to. They won't take it back." The room had gone very quiet. Then my dad said "Reed. Do you want this?" "I don't know daddy." I whispered. Tim stood up. "Well this is none of my business. I'll be in my room." and left. "No. No way. Mom didn't want you to dance for a career. No." Jane said. Davis just kept quiet and studied my face. He looked like he was in some sort of trance.

"Well there will be a representant from the school at the fundraiser. You should meet him before making a decision." Lara said. Jane's shoulders tensed and she snapped at Lara. "May I remind you that this is a family matter! You are not going to tell us what we should and shouldn't do!" "Jane leave her alone!" Dad shouted. But now David was pissed too. "Well sis." he spat out. "May I remind you that when Mom died Lara was practically Reeds mother! While you were off in Paris she took all the rough spots and still sticked with her while you took the first flight out. You never called and you never came here on your own. Not even when Ben went psycko! We always bought you the tickets and we always called you! Lara is family!" My dad broke in and said "Reed will you go upstairs and stay with Tim for a while?" I nodded and ran to the stairs. I had never seen them act like that. It was horrifying. I ran into Tims room and hauled myself into his arms where I cried my eyes out. He stroked my back and whispered reasurring things in my ear. I could still hear them yelling downstairs.

("Dad's" and Lara's POV)

John walked Lara to the door and followed her to the sidewalk where the screams and shouts from the house were less audible. "I'm sorry Jane snapped like that. We will consider it. But in the end you know it comes down to Reed. Thank you for giving the offer." "You know that I only want what's best for her right?" "Yeah we all do. Thank you." They shook hands and Lara started walking home.
