2. Chapter 2

The rest of the day passed really slowly. I was just gathered most of mom's things and made a little area to keep them. It was my little 'mom is still with us' reminder. 

*Knock, knock* "

"Come in, oh, hey dad" I say, trying to keep my voice from breaking. "Bri, I just wanted to give you this necklace. It was mom's favourite. She wanted it to stay in the family." I smiled at him and mouthed a thank you. 

I was stunned by it. I always saw mom wearing it when i was younger. It was a little white crystal, small but yet beautiful. I turned around so dad could wear it for me. "It's beautiful, thanks dad" I gave him a hug  before he went out, i think to talk to Justin. Now, I would always have a piece of her.

I quickly searched for one of the mix tapes mom used to make. I played it before going to sleep. Hopefully it would take me away from the real world.

* the next week* 

the past week hasn't been much, just lots of mourning and people sending their condolences. Today was her funeral. I was just glad that my best friends, Lindsy and Taylor were here with me. I didn't know what I would do without them. 

As they lowered her casket into the ground, I knew it was the last time i would ever see her. "Here, take this for me" I say to Taylor and Lindsy, passing them my three inch shoes. "Just keep them safe for me" I say smiling. With that i took of running, ignoring their calls. I ran as fast as I could. I loved the feeling of the wind in my face, I wished that I could just run away from all my problems, to a time where everything was perfect. 

I didn't know where I was running to, but I didn't care. I couldn't take it anymore, tears were rolling freely down my face, i could imagine my mascara. I mentally slapped myself for not using water proof mascara. 

I stopped when I came across this garden, it was empty, no one around. There were flowers everywhere and a few big trees. 'Perfect' i thought.  I sat under a tree, with big branches that sheltered me from the sun. I sat leaning against the tree looking at the blue sky. It reminded me of the time when we would all go for a picnic as a family. We would all lie on the grass, admiring the clouds while eating her famous peanut butter and sandwich jelly.I must have drifted away, cause when i woke the sun was always setting. 

"Where have you been? I have been worried sick!" Dad said. "Sorry, I just was out. Anyway, I'm really tired so I'm going to bed now" I showered and went to bed. Hopping the next day would be better.
