22. I cried

Cry ; Shed tears or weep ; with or without sound 

When we arrived in New York after the sun started setting. I had found one of Reese's police jackets and used it as a blanket as I slept. You would think it wouldn't be comfortable, but Reese's jacket made me feel safe. When I woke up I realized I had been sleeping for 4 hours. 

"Hey there sleepy head."

I sounded disoriented. "Where are we?"

" We are in New York. I'm trying to find the cheapest hotel I can. I have only got about $150. We will need food, a new car, and some new clothes. No matter how good you might look in mine." He winked.

"I sighed and stretched my arms and legs. Well you might want to hurry. Dino might have to take a leak. And I am starved. "There are some pretzels in the glovebox. I stopped at a few gas stations while you were out." 

I sat up and opened the glovebox. I realized that I had never put the gun back in the glovebox. I looked around my seat and searched for it, and found it on the floor beside my seat. I picked it up and turned it over in my hand. The cold metal felt good in my hand. I ran my two fingers down the barrel of the gun. I looked over to Reese and watched him drive. If I shot him right now, this would all be over. I looked down at the gun, that was reflecting the streetlights into my eyes. If I killed him, I would live. I would hatemyself, and I would be lonely forever, but I would be alive. Just then I felt something grab the gun gently but firmly. I looked up at Reese and realized he had stopped the car. Reese was looking into my eyes, but still pulling the gun from my hands. He took the gun and put it down at the floor by his own feet. Reese was a good person. He saved lives. He didn't deserve this. He deserved better than me. But yet, he still loved me. I couldn't kill him. I wouldn't kill him. I hadn't realized it, but I was crying. Reese had realized it,and right away he he wrapped his arms around me and held me tight. And I cried. I cried harder than I had ever cried in my life. 

"Hey now, it's going to be alright....Shh shh shh.....It's okay...Birdie it'll be okay. I won't let anyone hurt you."
He was talking to me like I was a small little terrified little girl. And I was okay with it. I trusted him. For the first time in my life I trusted someone. But the thing that hurt, was that he kept telling me nobody was going to hurt me. But someone was going to try to hurt him. And it could be me.
