10. Opening Up, Or Keeping Closed?
Two workers were walking down the hallway and saw us alone outside and ran to the door. I knew that I was about to be in major trouble. They picked us both up onto our feet and walked us out the door. Before I knew it, I was with Tracy and Luke was put in his own room for the night. Tracy didn't look unhappy, but she had a really disappointed look upon her face. A look I was used to from my parents, and I could tell she was about to open up her feelings.
"Louise, it is perfectly okay to admit you're not okay. You realize that right?" Her eyebrows moved when she talked, I never noticed that about someone. "What exactly brought you here?" She asked.
"Tracy, I think you already know the answer to that question," I replied. She raised a brow at my smart-alec remark and kept going. "I mean, why even think about it?" She was truly trying to get something out of me. I wasn't ready yet, I'll open up when I'm ready. So I just looked up like Luke would do, and tuned her out.
She kept calling my name over and over, as if she thought the next time I would listen. However, trust takes years to build. So she will be waiting for a long while. Tracy ended up giving up and told me that my first day was over with and I could go on back to my room. I really didn't want to go back, the scratches on my walls felt like they would give me nightmares. But Tracy had some supervisor come and escort me to my room and I stayed there for the rest of the night.
