I awoke the next morning to the smell of food cooking. I rolled over and looked at the clock and saw it was 10 in the morning. I looked over at Luke his back turned towards me. I smiled and I rolled back over to my night table and grabbed my book. I opened and started reading and soon got lost in the world of fantasy.
"What are you reading there?" I heard Luke say.
"I don't a book that I bought at the hospital. It's quite good." I said.
"Well what's it called?" He asked coming to lie down beside me.
"I don't know it's one of those books where the books in english but the titles french." I said not really paying attention to him.
"Well then what's it about?" He asked.
"I don't know I'm not that far into it I just got it yesterday." I said.
"Well how much have you read of it?" He asked.
"About three quarters of the way through." I said flipping another page.
"And yet you still can't tell me what's the books about?" He asked.
"No because I have to be finished the book to be able to tell you what it's about." He said.
"Well if you would like to take a break from your book I made some food." He said.
"Not any type of food just food?" I said jokingly.
"Yep just food." He said laughing.
"Ok well lets go and see what food exactly means." I said getting into my wheelchair.
"Do you have therapy today?" He asked.
"No I get Sundays off." I said wheeling over to the oven.
"Have you been walking at all at you sessions?" He asked.
"Well I've been standing but I haven't really taken any steps yet." I said.
"So I guess you're going to be walking soon." He said.
"Hoping really and I see we have pancakes or at least I think they are." I said looking at the plate beside the oven.
"Ya um they were suppose to be pancakes but honestly I have no idea what happened." He said awkwardly.
"Well they should taste good." I said ripping a piece off one and putting it in my mouth.
"How is it?" He asked.
"Good." I said swallowing.
We finished breakfast and I saw that it was 11:45. I grabbed our dishes and I put them in the sink to wash later. I looked over at Luke and saw he was just lying down watching TV. I was praying he was still going for that walk.
"Hey Luke don't you think you should go for hat walk?" I asked.
"Ya just give me a minute I just ate." He said. I nodded and just went into the bathroom to brush my teeth and my hair. I soon finished and I looked around and saw the bathroom was a mess again. I just cleaned it! I sighed and cleaned up again. Once everything was organized I went back out and saw that Luke was gone. I looked at my phone and Luke texted saying he was going on his walk and he should be back in an hour or so. I breathed a sigh of relief.
About a half hour later I heard a knock on the door and I wheeled over and I looked through the peep hole and saw Michael. I took a big breath and I opened the door. Michael came in and he walked through the door closing it behind him.
"So this is where you guys are living?" He said.
"Good to see you too." I said.
"Really Kara, why don't you guys just come back." He said.
"Because I don't want to live with my parents. They aren't going to let me leave the house anyways." I said.
"Well not now." He said then looking around. "Wait where's Luke?"
"He had to go out. He had to pick up some things." I said.
"So you didn't tell him I was coming?" He asked.
"No why would I do that?" I said.
"You know I wanted to talk to him." He said.
"And I don't want him mad at me. Is there anything else you want to say Michael?" I asked.
"Yes how do you think that running away is going to make anything better?" He asked.
"I don't know it gave us some space." I said.
"Space from what?" He asked.
"I don't know everything. I was overwhelmed and Luke was overwhelmed." I said quietly.
"You made him runaway didn't you?" He asked shocked.
"No I didn't he said we should." I said.
"You obviously did there's now way Luke would runaway." He said.
"How do you know that?" I said becoming angry.
"Because Luke and I are best friends I know he wouldn't do something like this." He said.
"Maybe he's changed. Everyone's changed." I said and just to my luck Luke walked through the door. He looked a mixture of shocked and angry.
"Hey how was your walk?" I said quietly. I then put my hands in my lap and put my head down.
"You told him where we were?" He said.
"No I might have mentioned we were in town and then saying we were in a hotel might have slipped out." I said awkwardly.
"See this is why I told you not to text them." He said angrily.
"I know and I'm sorry." I said.
"Just forget it." Luke said turning around and walking out the door.
I followed behind him leaving Michael in the apartment. I came up behind him before I started talking.
"Luke I'm sorry I know you didn't want anyone to know but it'll be better if someone knows." I said.
"We were just fine with no one knowing." He said turning around.
"Ya but if Michael knows maybe he could help with everything. I know you're stressed and I know I can't really help so maybe he could help." I said.
"If I can't trust you not to tell anyone where we are. How am I going to be able to trust you with private stuff?" He said angrily.
"I'm sorry I told him but please I don't want this to ruin us." I said sadly.
"I don't want it to either but I don't know if I can't trust you what do we have?" He said throwing his hands in the air then turning around and walking into the elevator. He pushed the button and I tried to catch up to him but by the time I got to the elevator door he was already in the elevator with the doors closing. Once the doors had closed I just sat there at the door.
I soon wheeled myself towards the door of the hotel room. I saw the door was closed I leaned forward and hit my head of it. And soon the door opened making me almost fall off the chair.
"Sorry I thought you were knocking." Michael said.
"It's fine. Hey Michael do you think you could drive me to my parents?" I asked.
"What you aren't staying here?" He asked.
"No Luke and I aren't really on good terms and we're probably done with the whole running away thing so I guess I should go back home." I said.
"Ok is everything ready to go?" He asked.
"Ya let me just put it in my bag." I said. I put everything in my bag and I texted Luke saying I was going back to my parents house.
I wheeled out of the hotel room and took the elevator and soon wheeled through the lobby. Michael helped me into the car and put my wheelchair in the trunk and soon we were off to my parents and back to the place I didn't want to be.
