Deandre took me to his apartment and I decided to tell him my story, over a glass of nice tap water.
“ I started off in my home that I had lived in for the past 10 years, which was the Yorkshire Orphanage for the abandoned, I had a few friends Talon who had a major crush on me, my friend Camden, and my little sister Payton, Talon heard that our head mistress was going to send us to
Tibet to another orphanage, we all Decided to escape to Canada, we were going to take a ship, when we were at the Yorkshire Docks, a cop found us and we got lost and thought we would meet up again on one of the ships, Talon was with Camden and I was luckily with Payton, we boarded our ship, when we got to our room Payton said she was hungry, so I went
out to get her some food, when I returned Payton's clothes were laying on the bed but she was no where to be found, I switched the television channel to the news, I could not understand the language and then I saw the word Revelation, and then I realized that the prophecy of the end of the world was coming true, other people on the boat had the same problem as me, I tried telling the captain about it, but he thought I was crazy, and he wanted to put me into an asylum, so I jumped off the boat and made my way to Israel, when I arrived I was starving I stole some fish then I met you”. “ Wow, that is a lot to take in, I feel so bad for you Colbie, So the world is ending what is going on?”, “ Yes the world is ending, and I don't know what to everything is in the book of Revelations”. “ Tell me more about this Talon guy, what did he look like”.
“ Well he was my best friend since I arrived at the orphanage, he always made sure I was cared for, and he has a huge crush on me, he has brown hair, and brown eyes, he was really kind and welcoming to me even when other people weren't, “ Why do you want to know so much about Talon anyway”. “ I don't know, just curious that's all, tell me more about Payton”. A cold feeling rushed through me, just at the thought of Payton. And for a few seconds of complete awkward silence, I covered my eyes in shame of my tears, and bolted out of the room, Deandre came after me and began to apologize for mentioning her, I forgave him, but still made may down the narrow stair case down near the door, he still continued to follow me. “
