Chapter 9

Saph

“Wise man sang, only fools rush in. But I can’t help falling in love with you.” I sing as I walk through the wood behind my house. I can’t believe it’s the last time. I sit next to a rock gourge and just look at the bottom. I take my foot and push a rock to my hand. I throw the rock down into it and after a few minutes, I hear it hit the bottom.

Such a long way down. Perfect for a jump. Just perfect. I stand up, walk backwards and then run up to the edge. I look down, and then I realize there isn’t any gourge in my woods. This is a pond and my imagination is transforming it. I wouldn’t die if I jumped in the water. I would just freeze my butt off. I slowly continue on to the meadow. I lay down in the middle of it and just love life for a second. Then slowly I began to sing.

“Cotton Candy Clouds, float by my head. I reach out, to touch them. Cotton soft, take my troubles away. Cotton Candy Clouds, be here to stay.” I finish. It’s a song from when my grandmother was still alive. I smile up at the cotton candy clouds above me then realize what time it is.

“I’ve got to go!” And with that I jump up and run back through the wood to my house. I can’t be late to go with the men in the suits. Mother said I would die either way but it’s better to die if I go with them. I have a chance then, she said.

So I quickly hop into the shower and wash my hair. Then I get out, dry off and slip on a plain white dress. I blow dry and brush my hair. I then finish packing my bag and then walk towards the living room.

I walk in singing Cotton Candy Clouds when my mother catches me and stops me dead in my tracks.

“What did I tell you about that song?” she glares at me.

“No singing it in the house?” I try to answer the question.

“NO! No singing it AT ALL!” she yells into my face. “UNDERSTAND?!” And with that she walks off to the kitchen. It takes all of me to hold back the tears threatening to pour from my eyes. I hear a knock on the door and go to get it. I open it to two men in black suits. One has a name tag that says Jones, the others says Roth.

“Sapphire?” Jones asks.

“Saph.” I answer him as politely as I can.

“Time to go, Saph.” Roth says slowly dragging out my nickname.

“Ok, let me grab my bags.” And with that I pick up my suitcase and hand it to Roth.

“Let me just go say goodbye to my mother.” They nod and I walk into the kitchen. My mother is there washing the dishes.

“What do you want Saph?” my mother questions me.

“A hug and kiss goodbye? Maybe if i’m lucky enough, an ‘I love you’?” I ask her.

She turns around with tears at the edges of her eyes.

“Ok sweetums.” she says. She hasn’t called me that since grandma was alive. I feel tears in my eyes and hug her tightly. She kisses my nose,

“I love you.” She manages to get out. I swallow so loud I swear Jones and Roth could have heard it.

“I love you too.” And then I walk out of the kitchen and to the front door.

“Ready to go?” Jones asks.

“Yep.” I say. “As ready as i’ll ever be.”

We walk out the front door and to a black van outside. I see my suitcase in the back.

“Hop in.” I hear one of them say. They sound so alike.

“Ok.” I look out the window at my mom on the porch. She waves at me and I blow her a kiss. As we pull out of the driveway I hear myself singing Cotton Candy Clouds.
