Everything Changed

This story is in loving memory of my dad. Forever in our hearts.


6. Back


Two days after I went back to school. I couldn’t stand sitting at home in my room, waiting for nothing. My teacher had talked to the class and told them how to handle the situation. I’ll always be grateful for that. As soon as I entered the classroom he went over to me with tears in his eyes and gave me a huge hug, but I didn’t feel anything. I didn’t feel his arms around me. I had left the real world and created a layer of numbness on top of my skin. I remember people acting fairly normal. My friends came over and talked to me and hugged me. During lunchtime we went to the baker and bought some Danish pastry. It didn’t taste of anything. When the day ended and we said goodbye, one of my friends asked if I wanted to walk home with him.

“No, I’m fine, my dad’s picking me up”. He looked just as confused as I was and I became painfully aware of my loneliness.
