17. Chapter 15: The Funeral
Today. Today was the day I'd been dreading. My mother, my own freaking mother dead. I told her before I left that it wouldn't be the last time she saw me, but sure enough it was. As I look down at her casket now I know, some promises can't be kept but it's the love you put into the promises that counts.
I loved my mother. She was my everything. Thinking about going on through life seemed impossible now. But as I looked up at Luke, he kissed my forehead and I knew that my mom would watch over me and make sure I was never alone.
After the funeral I didn't feel like talking, or doing anything for that matter. So Luke checked us into a hotel. He brought up our bags and I changed into black sweats, a long sleeved t-shirt and put my hair in a messy ponytail.
"Do you want anything love?" Luke asked me.
"No..." I said moping around our room.
"Come on let's go do something fun, let's not let the end of your mothers life ruin yours. I wanna get you smiling again." He picked me up bridal style and carried me out of our room.
We spent a good two hours exploring the hotel, dingdong ditching, hiding under tables, putting towels in the public toilets, pointless shit like that. And looking at Luke now, I didn't feel so bad.
