26. That Kind of Kid

We drove. We drove with now where to go. But we didn't care. We were together and we felt safe. I drove down country roads, I drove down big city streets. I only stopped driving when Reese wanted to stop at a small diner.

"I used to come here when I was a kid with my mom. It was a way we got away from my dad."

"Your mom, she sounds wonderful. I'd like to meet her."

"I would like to see her too. It's been awhile. Once I turned 18 I hightailed it out of New York and went to the academy. She supported me 100% and I never heard from her since.

And whenever she laughed, it made everyone around her laugh. Sometimes she even snorted. But I haven't even gotten close to her revenge yet. I feel like I'm letting her down."

I looked over at Reese to tell him that we had arrived at the diner, but as I looked at his face, I saw a tear trickling down his cheek.

He looked at me and gave me a crooked smile. We both opened our doors and walked into the diner hand in hand. Reese pushed the door open and led me inside. As the door closed Reese stopped dead in his tracks and gasped. I heard a familiar laugh...
