23. The Final Look

 

... tears suddenly springing to her eyes. As she looked around, she remembered the scene she had witnessed. Something caught her eye. A young girl stood on the side of the pavement, looking down the road at a house. She had long black hair, deep brown eyes and pale skin. It was Abby. Abby tried to tear her eyes away from the ghostly image of herself but some how she couldn't. Her eyes watched as she saw Jamie bounding down the other side of the road, running across, the car coming down, the contact and Jamie flying through the air. This time it was in slow motion. His arms flailed wildly and his mouth was in a frightened 'o'. Abby saw not only fear and pain in his eyes as he flew slowly through the air, but a tiny amount of love and she looked at his mouth. It was saying something in a hoarse whisper, and she realised as his body finally hit the ground, he was saying 'I miss you'. She watched as herself ran over to him, the driver carrying on down the road. It was at that moment Abby was finally able to tear her eyes away, and as she did, the figures fizzled and faded away. A pang went off in her chest, and the tears that had been brimming in her eyes started to roll down her cheeks. A sharp "beep" was heard and she turned to see her Dad motion to get back in the car. Taking a final deep breath, she smelt the saltiness from the near by sea and managed to smile a broken smile before she retreated back into the car.

'Abby, I can see you crying. Stop trying to act like your OK. What happened? You were just standing there and it looked as though you were watching something.' Abby wiped her eyes and sighed. She had hoped her Dad wouldn't notice her red eyes and wet cheeks.

'I just, I saw the scene again.' Her Dad sighed.

'Abby, I know your upset, if you want we can turn back and you can see it again for the last-'

'No,' said Abby bravely. Her throat was dry and she struggled to speak.

'We're not going back and I'm not going to complain. That was the deal.' As she said this, she realised she didn't need to go back and see June Drive again. She never had needed to in the first place. She realised that, truthfully, she had gotten over Jamie ages ago, she just forced herself to keep thinking about him. 

'Alright Abby, that was the deal,' her Dad nodded.

'Yes, and Dad,' Abby added.

'Yes?' her Dad replied.

'Let's not talk about it for the rest of the journey.'
