I'm frozen, nothing is moving.
The room is still and quiet, just like how the city was during that midnight drive.
"Adelaide! I know you're in here!"
After that, my hearing disappears, my vision is blurry, and I feel weak.
I slowly start to fall backward and Michael is there to save me.
I fall into his bare arms and immediately start to break down.
"I'm never going to see you again," I say to him with tears decorating my face again.
"Yes, you will."
"No, I won't."
"Yes, Adelaide, you will see me again."
He puts his hands on my cheeks and makes sure our eyes are in contact.
"Yes. Yes, you will."
"I am in so disappointed in you."
I sit down, tears spilling out of my eyes.
I don't look my parents in the eye, too afraid to see their faces.
"We trusted you."
"Why would you do anything like this?"
"This isn't something my daughter would do."
"I can't believe this."
Each word feels like a knife stabbing into my chest.
Each word hurting more and more.
My eyes still look at our white carpet,
still hearing those hurtful words spill out of my mom and dad's mouth.
