I knew deep down it was never a good idea for us to be together, I knew that it would all go wrong very quickly.
All I ever wanted from the beginning, was a good stable home. I've always somehow managed to mess that up, I've been able to stay in a home for more than a couple weeks.
Vic was crazy, I think he's basically lost his mind now. Thinking we could just run away and get away with it. I thought about just taking off without him, stealing the keys and leaving.
"Vic, we should go back..." I rubbed his shoulder, trying to calm him down. He rapidly stood up and bolted for the door. You could physically feel his anger. I didn't fully understand what has gotten into him lately, it's like a switch went off and he's completely changed.
I quickly got up and packed everything we had in the room, I thought maybe if I packed everything and put it in the vehicle he would change his mind about leaving.
I threw everything in the car and went, once again to look for Vic. I spotted him sitting on a bench near the front of the hotel smoking a cigarette. I quietly sat down beside him and rested my hand on his knee.
"We need to go, I packed our things," He rudely interrupted me.
"Why? If we stay we get in trouble, If we go we get in trouble. What's the point?" He looked at me as if I was supposed to know the answer, I didn't.
"Just hear me out, I understand where you are coming from but, If we go back and they remove me from your house permanently, then we aren't considered brother and sister any more. Which means, we can be together." I didn't really think through what I had just said, but it really got to him as he then grabbed my hand and pulled me to the car.
We didn't even stop once on the way home, Vic was already speeding the whole way there. I wasn't aware of what he had planned for when we got back home, but I could see determination in his eyes. I was already planning how I would pack my things to return the foster centre, I knew for they wouldn't let me stay in their home any more, and I wasn't going to be able to return to the group home after all of this.
"Babe, don't you think you should slow down a bit, we aren't the only car on the road." I tapped Vic's arm to get his attention. He nodded and speed up more. I rolled my eyes annoyed.
I couldn't believe they thought they could just get away without anyone knowing! I never thought of Vic being that dumb, well he is a boy and all, but really? running away?. I sighed deeply and opened my English textbook.
I could hardly focus today, just waiting for my mother to give a call that they came back home. I had mixed feelings about the fact that Izzy may be leaving forever, I still disliked her, but she was starting to grow on to me. I couldn't even imagine how much crap Vic was going to be in. I grinned. At least this time it isn't me.
I really didn't both of them to become the main focus in my life, I was getting older, which meant I would soon leave for college and start my life as an adult. I had been really trying this year in all of my classes, I had nearly 90's in every class, well with the exception of Spanish class.
My phone finally rang, right in the middle of a short story reading, I practically jumped out of my car and ran out of the classroom.
"hello?" I said making my way to the bathroom.
"Come. Home. Now." My mother yelled into the phone. I hung up before she could even say any more. I got my things from class and explained to my teacher that I had to leave for a family emergency. I made it home in just under ten minutes, I didn't want to have another screaming phone call from my mum.
"Hi, I'm home." I yelled once I got inside. I walked into the living room and saw my parents sitting down with what looked like a social worker, "What's going on?" I grabbed a chair beside my parents.
"Hunny, we're just talking about Izzy." My mother said softly.
"Why? Is she being removed?" I narrowed my gaze onto the social worker, hoping to get some answers.
"HI, I'm gin, I'm Izzy's case worker. You must be Julia." She stopped waiting for me to reply, I nodded, "I'm sure you're aware of what has been happening with Izzy lately, and I just stopped by to see how everything was going, since Izzy has been moved to a group home." I sighed in relief, I didn't want Izzy to leave because I just knew it would totally break Vic's heart. I don't even really know what he sees in her, she just like any other girl.
"Oh, everything is going just fine." I said realizing I was zoned out for longer than expected.
This was our last resort, there was nothing Vic or I could do. I was going to have to leave there house, which meant I could never see Vic or Julia again. I’m not sure if vic could ever handle loosing me, I don’t know if I could handle loosing him. I could honestly see myself having a future with him, kids, a big house. I hated how I made him feel though, I could see that he really did love me but I could also see that I was causing him pain. I also didn’t want to be the only reason why he was happy, I don’t want to have his happiness in my hands, I don’t want that stress on my shoulders. All I want in the long run is for everyone to be happy.
We were almost back home, I could feel my heart speeding up, my palms sweating. I looked over a Vic and saw his smile dissappear, I grabbed his right hand and held onto is tight. I was scared, I didn’t know what was going to happen, the worst thing that could happen would be leaving.
We pulled up to the house and parked in the driveway, Vic pulled himself away from me and rushed out of the car. He didn’t even close his door before he was running into the house. I slowly undid my self beat and made my way inside, I could hear yelling, It was mostly Vic though.
“CALL THE COPS? REALLY MOM?” Vic practically screamed in his mothers face, I rushed over to him and pulled him away from her.
“Vic, you need to calm down. Now.” i said in my most calming voice ever, he was breathing heavily, I pushed his face closer to mine and looked him right in the eyes. “please.” I said quietly. I sat him down on the stairs and went back to the living room. “I’m so sorry.” I said sitting down onto the couch. I held back my tears as I really was sorry that all of this has happened.
“Your social worker was here,” Kayla explained, she took a seat beside me and rubbed my shoulder. “We were just worried about you two, we wanted you home, so you could be safe. That’s all. I thank you for calming Vic down, he can get out of hand sometimes.” I nodded in agreement. “We all love you very much Izzy but we aren’t sure it’s the best thing to keep you here with our family anymore.” Kayla gulped, I could tell it was hard for her to say this to me. “I mean, your family too, you are a part of this family. You know that right?” she paused. “We just thinking you moving out and getting your own place will be better for everyone. We both don’t fully agree with you and Vic being together, but we will get used to it. I just can’t handle thinking of you as a daughter and my sons girl-friend”
I understood where she was coming from and I honestly didn’t see this coming, I thought they would just totally kick me out right away.
“I can’t afford my own place.” I began to think about how much money I actually had left from my last job.
“That’s fine, we will pay for the rent and food for you, I can’t promise we will do that forever, but until you get on your feet.” She smiled. I smiled back.
I’m so grateful for having them as my parents, I’ve never had real parents before, my mom gave me up very early in my life.
“So, I’ll still be able to see Izzy?” Vic came and joined us.
“Yes hun.” Kayla replied.
Everyone handled this way better than I ever expected, things were looking good for once.
