8. Making Plans

Terra

 

He followed me like a dog since my emotional breakdown. All I needed him for was extra packing hands. The letter had sent me to a breaking point, my dad had known the entire time and he had done nothing about it. I had opened the other envelope inside was bank information and a bank card, housing information and my missing acceptance letters. My dad had also put in $600 dollars cash and a piece of paper with a lot of phone numbers on it, at the bottom he put his Post Office box address and a private cell phone number in case I ever needed him for anything, I had rolled my eyes after seeing it. My anger coursed through my veins as I packed my things into the boxes sealing in the only good memories that lived in this house. Thankfully I didn't have a lot of things, my plan was to pack fast. I didn't need any more confrontation today. I noticed James sitting by the window watching me and I felt my face get hot. I caught myself daydreaming of him and I pushed the thought out of my head, a boy was the last thing I needed. I stared at the last thing sitting on my desk, my Bible. My granny had given it to me on my sixteenth birthday. I was tempted to leave it and I had resolved to put I saw James put it in the box he was carrying before we started down the stairs to pack the car. I put the boxes in my little car and I decided to leave my family with a goodbye present. I dug around in the box in the backseat and I pulled out a can of red spray paint. I picked a spot on the lawn and I wrote a lovely message for everyone to see. I was so pleased with myself, and I felt nothing could bring me down from the sky until I turned around to see the look on James' face.

I watched her pack up her few things and I watched in horror as she almost left her Bible behind. She turned her back and started down the stairs and I nonchalantly threw it on top of the things I was carrying. I was confident that she would regret leaving it behind sooner, if not later. I cannot say that I was surprised that she was leaving, I had known since we left the church I guess that she was going. I had seen people break before and I knew that if she didn't have a hand to hold she was heading for a tail spin to nowhere. She packed her boxes into her car and put her hands on her hips, it was then that I realized she had not changed out of her bloody shirt. She smiled cryptically as she pulled a can of spray paint out of her bag. She walked over to the lawn and drew awful words onto the grass. I could see through all of the anger and I saw a scared little girl that had fallen off of her bike and needed a band-aide. Except this time I didn't have a first aid kit equipped with band-aides big enough for a broken heart.

His frown had shocked me, sending shivers up and down my spine until I shook. He looked at me for a few more moments before shifting his eyes to the message I left on the ground. I took my paint and stomped to the car. He almost seemed like he was trying to be condescending, but it was no matter I would be rid of him soon enough. I slid into the drivers seat and held my hand out for the keys. He got in obviously taking his time. I rolled my eyes as he finally handed them over. "So... where are you headed?" I asked him trying to look chipper. He didn't answer right away so I began driving. I was tapping the steering wheel and humming along to the song on the radio, I was trying so hard not to think of James, and the things to come. I pulled into Helen's driveway, I assumed this is where he was living. He didn't get out. Instead he turned to me and smiled, "Will you wait here a moment?" I rolled my eyes and agreed to wait, and he obviously knew I had no intention of waiting because he swiped the keys from the ignition and ran into his house smiling. I was nervous being so close to the church. I did not ever want to step a foot into that place again as long as I lived. I waited for 10 minutes contemplating going inside after my keys, but the idea was quickly struck down at the thought of seeing Helen. Helen had been her best friend growing up, she didn't remember when the relationship between them changed, but it had. I was drug from my memories of Helen as my back door opened and boxes and a suitcase was added to my meager possessions in the back seat. I was about to protest as he slammed the door and climbed back into the passengers seat, fastening his seat belt. He put the keys back into the ignition and grinned at me like a fool.

I had no idea what I was doing until Terra pulled into my drive way. She looked determined and angry and hurt all at the same time. There was no way I could let her go away by herself. I knew deep down that she wasn't ever coming back to this town and I felt a pang of jealousy that I was to be deprived of her. I know you think I am crazy, and that I barely even knew her but I did know her. Deep down she and I were the same person, living separate lives until this morning when I walked into that choir room. There was no way I was letting her get away. I had no idea what I was doing I took her keys and ran into my house. Luckily I hadn't unpacked from school yet, and my things were still pretty much together. I threw some things in boxes I found in my dads office and I grabbed my guitar case from the closet. I figured that may come in handy. I grabbed my wallet and some money I had saved in a shoe box and shoved it all into my back pocket. I left my cell number on the refrigerator and I was going to leave a note, but I figured I would text Helen later, since she was the only one that seemed to care I had even come home. Terra had her head back and her eyes closed when I walked back out with my things. I hated to break her concentration. My heart raced as I threw my things in the back, I had no idea what I was doing, but it felt like it was the right thing to do. I hopped back into the passenger seat, even though I confess that I would have rather been driving. I flashed Terra a smile and I put the keys back into the ignition.
