26. Sunday

It's Sunday now.  The day after the night of Homecoming.  My mind is reeling with events and questions and new revelations that only bring more questions.  When it's evening, I tell my mom I'm going for a walk and end up going for a swing.  I've repeated the story of what happened last night about a million times to fill the rest of my friends in.  But it all feels just like a dream.

After swinging around the city for a while, I end up on the roof of the bank where I'd stopped a crime the night before, now completely alone.  The door has been fixed already, as though nothing has happened, which only makes it feel less real.

And here I am, standing atop the tallest building in the city.  The people down below are busy with their lives--oblivious to the fact that I’ve been hurt, I’ve been deceived, and I’ve been used.  I know it’s only going to get worse, and I just want a solution.

It seems like months since the last time I was up here, alongside the boy I may never see again.  But that was just yesterday; not even 24 hours ago.  Funny how minutes turn to days, days to years.  What happened yesterday seems like a thing of the distant past.  But now, here I am, nearly 100 feet in the air.  I’m just standing here, wishing I could change events, knowing that it’s painfully out of my control.  I don't know how I can handle this.  I wish I knew what to do.  I just want it to all go away, but I know that won't happen.

I hear the wind, almost leading me on.  Jump, jump.  My toes get closer to the edge, the wind gently guiding me to what would most certainly be death below.  But I know what I have to do.  I close my eyes, listening to the sounds of the street below.  I lean forward, feeling the breeze on my face.  I feel the building let go of my feet, and I’m falling, flying, free.

Free for a few precious moments.  Free from the questions, free from the doubts.  And free from the answers, the truth I haven't learned, yet.  I'm just free-falling--free, and falling.  Then I open my eyes, catch myself on a web, and swing myself home.  And I can't help but think, maybe spiders aren't so bad after all.
