2. The Creek.

Goodness i miss him so much. He left right after i turned 15 and since then I've only seen him 3 times. Its been almost a year since i saw him last. It's really hard not having him here with me. Especially since mom died when i was 7.  I live with my grandparents; my grandma is so loving and helps me so much, but my grandpa is a jerk. he hates me and i have no idea why. He tells me that i waste his time, that he shouldn't have told my dad that he'd take care of me. He says I'm a good for nothing worthless human being that can't do anything right.  so most of the time i stay in my room, hang out with Skyla, or go to work. And of course go to school.

 

I get out of bed and slip into the bathroom. I take my Phone and put it on my vanity and play my music. I turn on the shower and begin undressing myself. I can see steam rising from the shower and misting onto the mirror. I slide into the shower feeling the warm water glide down my skin. I wash my hair and body and jump out of the shower.

 

I pull the towel tight around my body while going to get my underwear and bra. I walk into my closet trying to find something cute to wear. Normally i wold just wear a tee shirt and sweats but I'm meeting Skyla at the local bakery. I soon decide to wear my coral skinny jeans with my gray sweater that  say 'believe' in the same coral color as my pants. i then choose to wear my black ugg boots. I straighten my hair and put on what little make up i had. I go to the bathroom to brush my teeth and put on some body mist. After I'm done with that i find a dry erase marker and write me a reminder telling me to write my dad back. I text Skyla telling her to meet me at the bakery in an hour. I slip down stairs as quiet as can be, i don't want to wake grandpa. i fin my grandpa past out on the couch; he was probably drinking last night; and then i find my grandma in the kitchen cooking.

Aleigha: hi grandma. ( in a whisper tone. )

Grandma: morning darling, are you going some where?

Aleigha: yeah I'm meeting Skyla and im going to go play down by the creek for a little bit.

Grandma: Alright be safe. and remember don't let him see your guitar, you know he'll take it,

Aleigha: i know, I'll keep it hidden. i have to run, goodbye grandma!

 

I get out into the car making sure my guitar in in the trunk and head down to the creek to play a little before meeting Skyla. The creek is only about a 5 minute drive from my house so i get there quickly. I jump out of the car quickly grabbing my guitar and running deeper down the creek. i finally get to my usual spot and kneel down. There was always one thing i remember from my mom was alive. she would always tell me the even though i may feel alone or hurt by someone, that god was always there for me. That all i had to do was kneel, fold my arms, and pray. so every day that i come here i kneel down and pray to my heavenly father. i pray that life will get better and i can live my dream; become someone. A someone who can play and write music. Someone who can make a difference. i know that everything will end up okay because i believe in god and i know he will help me.

 

i pull out my guitar a play a few notes before playing on of my favorite songs.

Gonna Get Over You - Sara Bareilles

 

Goodbye Should be saying that to you by now, shouldn't I? Laying down a law that I live by Well, maybe next time
I've got a thick tongue Brimming with the words that go unsung I simmer then I burn for a someone The wrong one
And I tell myself to let the story end That my heart will rest in someone else's hand But my 'Why not me?' philosophy began And I said
Ooh, how am I gonna get over you? I'll be alright Just not tonight But someday
Oh, I wish you'd want me to stay I'll be alright Just not tonight But someday
Maybe It's a vicious little word that can slay me Keep me where I'm hurting, you make me Hang from your hands
But no more I won't beg to buy a shot at your back door If I'm aching at the thought of you, what for? That's not me anymore
And I'm not the girl that I intend to be But I dare you, darlin', just you wait and see But this time not for you, but just for me I said
Ooh, how am I gonna get over you? I'll be alright Just not tonight But someday
Oh, I wish you'd want me to stay I'll be alright Just not tonight But someday
Say it's coming soon Someday without you All I can do Is get me past the ghost of you
Wave goodbye to me I won't say I'm sorry I'll be alright Once I find the other side of someday
Ooh, how am I gonna get over you? I'll be alright Just not tonight But someday
Oh, I wish you'd want me to stay I'll be alright Just not tonight But someday

 

I sit there for a second after and take in the peace and quiet. I look at my phone and realize i was suppose to meet Skyla in 5 minuets. I grab my stuff, run to my car, and head to the bakery.
