They walked to the airport, and paid to get on the next flight to New York. It was very hard on all of them, because they all knew that once they stepped on that plane, there was no turning back. They walked towards the plane, hand in hand, trying not to cry. They stepped on and they looked back one last time. No turning back now.
Chance sat by Brittany and held her hand. He couldn't stop thinking about her being safe soon. Away from the hate, and nobody would know her past. It was so close. Brittany meant everything to him, and he wanted her safe and happy more than anything. Her being safe, happy, and with him, was better than anything he could imagine.
Brittany was exhausted, and she leaned her head on his shoulder. He held her close, and let her drift to sleep beside him. She was so beautiful sleeping there beside him. Her pale face, calm, and untouched except for the gaping slash on her cheek. It didn't belong there, but it wouldn't go away either. It didn't matter if she had a cut, she still looked so peaceful there beside him. All she wanted was to be there with him, it didn't matter to her where they were, as long as they were together. Chance knew that, and he felt the same way about her. He just wanted her safety and her to be with him. That's all that mattered.
Gabe let Madison lean her head on his shoulder. He felt so scared about what was going to happed after they got off this flight. He didn't want her to get hurt, or for her to be scared, but he was scared. Gabe tried not to ever let most of his emotions show except anger and love. That's all he allowed anyone to see. He had been brought up in a manner that said if you feel pain or emotions, suck it up. He tried to live by those standards, but it was hard for him. His personality was kind, and weak sometimes. He just wanted to make other people happy, and be able to show how he felt, but he also wanted to appear strong and like he could handle the world's worst. But, he knew he couldn't. Gabe seemed to have a war in his mind every second. He tried to suck it up, but how could he at a time like this?
As Gabe kept thinking about the while situation, Madison drifted to sleep on his shoulder also wondering what was going to happen. She was just as worried as he was. It wasn't the best feeling to be so scared for your lovers safety. The fear will pound in your head, make your chest hurt eveytime you see them, make the tears burn like acid when they come to your eyes. But, you know it's for them, you know you're scared for their safety, so you try to suck it up.
Gabe tried to sleep beside her, but he just couldn't sleep with all the things going on through his head. Madison beside him made him feel a little better, but he was so scared. He hated being scared. He hated trying to seem fine, when he was terrified inside. This war hurt, but he knew why he was doing this whole thing. To keep Madison safe. Now he knew why Chance was so protective over Brittany. It seemed like Chance was trying to steal Brittany away at fist, but Gabe finally got it. Chance was actually in love with Brittany and he wanted to keep her safe from any pain. Gabe knew that now, and he felt the same way about Madison. Madison was important, and he wanted to keep her safe. It was hard on him, but he would do anything to keep her safe and happy. He finally drifted to sleep...
