Well I guess this is it after I ended my phone call with Sarah my best friend for 2 years now, I decided it was time to say good bye to a place full of memories.  I walked around the outside of my house and just stood on the rock in my back yard remembering all the time i used to spend with my brother and friends chasing each other around. I did this until uncle mike called me to say that everyone was on their way to see me, even Jay.  i was shocked but relieved to have people there for me.  about an hour or two later uncle mike and everyone was standing in my front lawn staring at the house wondering  how this could've happen.  by this point i was dead to the world no one could get through to me as i shut myself off from the world and everyone around me. all i did was go to the car while everyone asked me what happened. i wish i answered them but instead i sat in my uncle's car waiting for him and everyone to go to their own cars and go home. once my uncle was in the  car with my aunt and three cousins we started the two hour ride back to Millis Massachusetts.  everyone in the car knew that i didn't want to talk so the ride back got very awkward very fast.  i just ignored them and listened to one direction on my iPod.  that was the only thing that could ever calm me down when i was in a state like i was just then.  when we got to the house Danielle one of my cousins showed me to my room, it was in the basement so i could easily have time to my own.  how ever that's not exactly what i got when i woke up in the morning around 10:30 Ben and Jon had some friends over i had met them before but they had never seen me in such a place.  it was silent for a few minutes until one of them asked what was wrong.  i didn't answer him all i did was run back down stairs to my room.  i was finally coaxed out of the basement by food because i was starving but i hadn't said a word since the fire yesterday and didn't expect to for  a while.  again some asked what was wrong this time i went online and pulled up an article written yesterday about the fire and had them all and it.  as they were finishing it all 5 or 6 of them stared at me in disbelief.  all i did was shrug and walk away. i had been txting Sarah all day because every hour she would call to check up on me in between the calls she txted me making sure that i indeed was fine.  my uncle came home right about then and i never even realized that he left but he pulled me away from all the people and told me he had a surprise for me since my birthday is tomorrow.  he handed me an envelope and inside it contained my surprise just as i was about to open it Sarah called because she wanted to see if i was ok i told her yes but i had to go since my uncle just have me a surprise that i really wanted to open.  she said ok then to text her what it was i agreed to do that then we both said good bye and hung up so i turned back to my surprise and i slowly ripped the envelope open to reveal what i thought was a prank i asked him if it was he told "no its not this your surprise but there is more so keep going" i did as i was told and then my uncle told me that there was still one thing left that he need to tell me.
