The wind is rushing through my hair as my feet seem to glide along the bushy path, my Nike shoes make a crunching noise as I sprint through the forest. Sometimes running is the only thing to relax me properly.
Eventually, I get exhausted so I stop and sit against a tree branch. I take out my earphones and notice my phone says I have a new voicemail message.
From Father Bear;
"Hey Princess, look I know you all hate me right now. But things are complicated, I was never fit to look after you girls on my own, now you have your Uncle Nathan and he'll take care of you. I'm really sorry I've done this, but I won't be seeing you guys for a while now so please remember your always in my thoughts. I love you"
My brain felt like it was about to explode, 1 month ago Dad went missing, he was presumed dead. Britt, Cody, Nemo and I barely managed without him. Nemo had to take a second job to support us, while Cody relied on the cooking, Me and Britt sorted everything else. We did the shopping, and now I'm under pressure to study for my learners test, so once I've done my hours I can get my provisional license. Another driver in the house would take off the load a bit.
My test is tomorrow to see if I can get my L's. I'm so stressed so I decided to go for a run to clear my head but now I have to go home, and tell the others what I'd just heard...
*5 minutes later*
"I just don't get it, why can't he come home?" I sighed.
Britt stared down at her lap while Selena sat at my feet. Nemo heard the voice message and run to his room, he hadn't surfaced since.
"It's complicated" Britt voiced to no one in particular, "Should someone see if Nemo's alright?" She continued.
I nodded and made my way to his room.
I knocked quietly on his door before walking in, he sat on his bed running his fingers over Dad's guitar.
"You okay?" I whispered as I walked towards him.
He looked up at me with glassy eyes and I immediately hugged him tightly, he broke down on my shoulder.
"Why didn't I go after him?" He sobbed, "I should have looked for him, begged him to stay...anything"
"This isn't your fault" I choked, fighting back the lump n my throat.
"I'm not sure I'm ready to look after you girls alone."
I pulled away and looked him in the eye.
"Listen we're all in this together okay? We'll get through this...I promise"
