11. Roger; Sky, Grass and Sea

"You know, the world use to seem so, normal, but suddenly, it's become my worse nightmare."  Sally explained to Roger, as they sat by the creek, their toes in the water and heads being cooled by the spring breeze.  Sally closed her eyes.  "I miss her, my dad's not the same.  He's always so sad.  Lately he's been crying.   A lot.  They tell me he misses her, but I don't believe them.  He never loved her.  She was never more than a ring on his finger, for him."

"Is he still coming home?"  Roger asked.

"sometimes."  Sally answered.  "But, not most nights."  She said.  Roger nodded his head, it was a way to reassure her.  Tell her it's gonna' be okay, without moving his mouth.  "How's your mother?"  She asked.

"Okay, you know, as she will ever be.  She doesn't like me, you know.  I can tell."  He said.  "She never talks to me anymore.  She doesn't seem to give a damn."  His frown was terrible.  Sally couldn't stand the thought of it, seeing him sad.  He noticed a tear fall down her cheek.  He forced a smile on his.  He hated to lie like that, but the smile was white.  She needed to see it.  Sally smiled too.  The lies had spread.  What they didn't know, was that the world welcomed the smiles, for it was the nicest lie it had ever seen.

"You know Roger, your my sky, grass and sea."  Sally told the young boy.

"what do you mean?" He questioned.

"Your my everything."

 

The more she listened to Roger Felcon, his voice sounded lesser and lesser like himself .  The more she listened to him the more his voice faded.  The more she listened to him, the less he was there.  Until, he wasn't there anymore and Sally woke up.

Leon was falling apart.  Even more than before.  he had no money, no food, no water.  He had to go back.  He cried.  The more he cried the less he understood.  He was a 13 year old boy, with no parents, no friends, he wasn't even attending school.  

 It was all wrong.

"May!  Breakfast!"  May's sister, Lisa, called from the kitchen.  May didn't move.  She didn't want to eat, not now.  "You want it or not?"  Her sister added.

"I do.  I'm coming." She called back to her.  May got out of her desk chair.  She popped into some skinny jeans and a blue-striped Tee Shirt, she walked down the wood hallway to the kitchen.  Lisa was eating some cereal at the table.  May drank some milk, grabbed her bag, and was gone before her sister could say otherwise.  But, May didn't go to school.  May just kept on running.
