After heading into town and getting some real clothes as well as some other things I wander around not really knowing were to go when I find this place. I remember there was a similar little lookout back home. Now that I finally allow myself to think of the past. I remember a lot of things about home, not all of it is good. Yes I remember the great times with my friends but I also remember my "family". My father worked a lot, but still found time for me, we were everything to each other.
Then he met Sarah, my stepmother. Sarah married my dad when I was six, he died two years later. He had actually been sick for awhile, but none of us knew because he didn't start to show symptoms of anything until earlier that year. She remarried when I was eleven. Now I could list off so many things I don't like about Sarah, but I will never say she didn't love my father. I will, however, say she didn't love me, but she was the closest thing to a mother I ever had and she was good to me, she just didn't love me. Then again neither did my real mother, she left when I wasn't even a year old. My stepfather, Sarah's husband Lawrence, and I have always had issues not the least of which includes me getting caught stealing. Ironic no?
Only reason I ever got caught was because I wanted to, what's the point of doing something for attention if no one knows you're doing it? Surprised? How did you think I got these clothes and the other things I needed? I didn't have money. I do now though.
I know without looking it's Shawn who comes and stands behind me touching my shoulder.
Shawn - If you look far enough you can almost see Valley.
Me - How did you know I'd be here?
Shawn - I didn't.
I turn and put my arms around his waist.
Me - Why are you here then.
Shawn - Same reason as you. Reminds me of the point.
Me - Good old Weston Point. It's weird, but I still think of Weston Valley as home. I suppose I should explain now.
Shawn - That can wait.
He slips his arms up around me and I do the same. Our lips touch, pressing together softly while his hand stokes my face and hair.
After breaking the kiss, I open my eyes and smile at him.
Holding my hand he leads me to a bench not far from where we were standing. Sitting down, he slips an arm around me.
Shawn - Now you can explain.
So I do. I tell him everything.
Shawn - Oh my. A lot of people think you ran away. I never believed that though.
Me - If I had planned on running away, you would have known about it... and hopefully I wouldn't have gone alone.
Shawn - Of course.
Me - Well I couldn't be sure, you actually like your family.
He laughs, God how I missed that sound.
Shawn - None of that's important now. I have you back and I'll never let anything happen to you.
We pull up to a nice looking apartment building and get out.
Shawn - Hey man, where's your girl?
"In our room. Why? What's up?"
I'm not surprised to recognize the voice of Shawn's best friend, Donny.
Shawn - You'll see, just go get her, 'kay?
Donny - Hey babe, could you come out here a minute?
I walk up next to Shawn, but they don't seem to notice.
Me - Hey love birds, over here.
Donny - HOLY SHIT! Hayley?
Me - Hey Donny. Hey Kitty.
Kitty - HAYLEY!!!
I'm nearly knocked back by the embrace.
Kitty - Hayley Elizabeth Thomas, where the fuck have you been?
Me - It's a LONG story and since when do you talk to me like that? Hmm Katherine Marie Sharp?
Kitty - Since you disappeared. Long story or not I wanna hear it.
Me - Alright, alright.
So I explain it all again, everything that's happened.
After slipping into my new cami, I lay on Shawn's bed trying to fall asleep when he comes in and softly climbs on next to me.
Shawn - Are you asleep?
Me - No.
Shawn - Is something wrong?
I turn and look up into his perfect pure blue eyes.
Me - I don't know. I don't ... things aren't the same as they used to be.
Shifting to put my arms around him he wraps an arm around my shoulders and cups my face.
Shawn - Of course things won't be exactly as they once were, but why do they have to be? I still love you.
Me - I didn't ask if you still loved me.
Shawn - I know. Does that mean I'm not allowed to say it?
I pull him closer and we shift so that he pulls me into a kiss. Its soft loving and longing all at once. It makes me yearn for the past.
I climb up onto him and start to remove his bottoms.
Shawn - What are you doing?
Me - Did you really expect to kiss me like that and that would be it?
I softly kiss his neck.
Me - I haven't been with you in six years Shawn.
Pulling back I slowly remove my cami top and then lean in to whisper lustfully into his ear.
Me - I want you.
Finally after so long apart, I'm back in the arms of the one I loved.
I shower, dress, and re-braid my hair.
It's a little after noon as I head into the main room.
I've said before I love cooking. I've also said I wasn't good at it before.
Donny - You can cook?
Me - Yes.
Shawn - Hey beautiful. What are you making?
Me - Stir fry.
Shawn - My favorite.
Me - I remember.
