It felt good to finally get all of that off my chest.It was nice knowing that Jenna,after all she had heard,still wanted to be involved with me.We sat there,side by side,watching the waves roll in and out.
"So what do you want to do,you know,about your situation?"
"I don't know but don't worry,i'll be fine."
"I can't just not worry about you,now that I know."
"I've been doing fine for the last 5 years Jenna,I doubt something would change that now."
"At least let me see if you can stay with me,just for a couple of days."
Like your mom would actually let me stay at your house,are you crazy?"
"No,I'm not crazy and if she knew your situation then maybe she might sympathize for your.
"I don't want anyone's sympathy."
"Well you already have mine,now come on."
"No,Jenna I'm fine.
"You being homeless is not okay with me and I've invested way too much time in you already to let you walk around like that.I'm not taking no as an answer.Don't you want to get your life together?"
It made me happy knowing that someone cared about me,especially with that someone being Jenna.And yeah,I did want to get my life together,but at this point I didn't know how.She took ahold of my hand,her small hand fitting in mine.
"Are you ready to do this?"
I nodded my head.She smiled at me before walking to her car.As I said before,I'm happy that Jenna cared,but I was more terrified than anything. How would her mom react to me asking to stay in her home?
"He's not staying in my house Katie that's final!"
"But mom he doesn't have anywhere else to go please."
Her mom looked at me.
"So what,Are you hiding from the cops? Is there a warrant out for your arrest or something?"
"You know what Katie,I knew to this was a bad Idea and for your information Mrs.Sinclair,I'm homeless."
I saw the shock plastered on her moms face but I didn't stop.I kept walking towards the door.I didn't have time to deal with inconsiderate people.
I turned to see her mom coming towards me,her arms open wide.She pulled me in for a hug,which I was hesitant to except.
"I'm so sorry,I didn't know."
"It's fine,I don't blame you for thinking that."
"No it's not fine.How long has it been like this for you?"
"For about 5 years."
"I'll let you stay here but there are a few ground rules that apply to you."
