Chapter 8
Chapter 8

School went fine. Most was normal. No one bothered me, and I didn't bother them. Only a few people asked me where I was. I told them the same lie I told teachers and principals. My parents were gone, and I got horribly sick.

I couldn't believe they fell for it.

In my class with John, when he saw me, he looked relieved. My only friend in that class was John and we didn't talk. But that relieved look was the only thing I needed... to move on and to see if he still cared for me, even the littlest.

And that was it. School ended.

I couldn't face the fact though that, that was it. Me and John were officially over. I don't know if that look was a look of "I want you back," or "Goodbye old friend," Like a nice, but official farewell. I couldn't face it that I was leaving my best friend without a goodbye. He was my only friend here, and now I was off to the city to find friends, which was unbearable compared to how much last time I was so uncomfortable with all of them making fun of me.

"Time to go!" Mom yelled by the door.

I picked up my suitcases next to the door, heading outside.

I decided to go to the Cortines Performing Arts, and to be honest, I was really excited. This was the one time I was leaving the farm since my incident of visiting the city. I couldn't be the way I was here though. That was the only thing I was worried about. How am I supposed to act like in a big city?

I looked back at the house, as if sending it a mind message saying, "Goodbye, I'll miss you,"

I looked at my mom giving her my goodbye hug and a kiss. She had to go to work.

I watched my mom and dad as they gave each other affection. I winced in the middle of the scene. Old couple...

My mom backed away, heading towards our small cabin I'd miss.

Dad and I were now already inside the car, putting on our seatbelts, and turning on the engine. Everything that was, or what I always thought of, is now part of my past. I'm in a new chapter now.

...................................................................................................................................................................................

I looked out the window. I saw passing trees, really slow walkers compared to the car's speed, and flying birds, going somewhat slower than us. I was going to enjoy my last view of the few farms here. I wasn't coming back until Winter Break anyways, which I was really nervous and bummed up about of course, but I knew I'd be fine. If my parents checked out the website, there's no way I would feel lost. ...I think.

Finally we passed the green sign that said...

Next exit: Guacapolis. The city.

I started to think... This was a mistake. I shouldn't be on my way to a new school in the city. Once again, I'm thinking of the city. The city! I should be in John's doorsteps right now apologizing for my immature, weak, and stupid attitude. The more I thought about it, I had to admit it was one of my dumbest purposes. Now I left, with no goodbye, and with no friends to give me comfort if something bad happened in the city. Which I knew something would. I didn't want to be bullied! What was I thinking? I didn't want to leave like this! This was not how it was supposed to be! John should be in this car with me as my boyfriend! That's what I wanted things like... This was not my dream come true like it should've been!

I missed John already... there was no point in denying it.



..............................................................................................................................................................................

My eyes opened. The car's engine stopped and the air was filled with car noises, airplane noises, and people. We were here.

The airport.

My eyes stung at the sight, just looking at it. My eyes were red from tearing up a bit, I was tired, and I had no idea how I'd tell the city folks that I was from a farm. Would they make fun of me?

At least dad didn't say anything of my tears. He probably noticed but never said anything. If mom was inside the car, not only would she ask about it, she would stop the car, turn off the engine, lights, radio, everything, and would ask what was wrong until I answered. Though she made me feel alot better in the end. Dad would notice but not say anything unless I'd want to talk of it. It was nice, but in the end, it really made no difference. He never helped me in anyway, so it never did help.

Dad swung the door open, the cool breeze running through my dark hair, and the noises of announcements running through the tunnel where we were. I followed my dad to the back of the car, watching him open the trunk. I didn't say anything until he shut it closed.

"Well bud," He began, "I guess this is it,"

I loved dad. Mom helped me out and comforted me when it came to boys, but dad helped with everything, mostly advice. He would always call me 'bud'. ...I was going to miss that.

I winced, almost wanting to tear up. I knew I would in the plane though. That was just me. I would hold strong for the longest time, promising myself that I won't break. But eventually, I will. Eventually I will fall apart, and all the tears will pour out.

Dad reached into me for one of our big bear hugs.

"Call me, skype me," He said, walking away.

"I trust you in this! Be safe," He reminded me, giving me the closest thing to a smile.

I knew he didn't want me to go, and that he was just really tired. But that smile was the same one I saw in John's face. It was... an official goodbye, but a nice one.

With that, I turned. Knowing that if I watched my dad drive away, leaving me, that would just break my heart. It could break any daughter's heart who loved their father dearly. All I needed to worry about was getting to my plane. I had to trust my instincts I'd get there safely.
