Not the longest story I could make… but that's ok, least everyone loved it. Anyways… you ready for the last Chapter? Well… here ya go!
Chapter 15: Is it Really Over?
(2 months later)
"Danny, you gonna make it?" Sam asked as we walked down through the park, and I laughed at her, "Yea, why wouldn't I?" I was still limping, taking small steps trying to avoid the pain left in my leg, but the cast was off, and things seemed to be going smoothly ever since we got home. The few ghosts that had shown up my parents were able to take care of with no problem; I wasn't really needed as much as I thought I had been in the past, although it had been slow for the past couple of months, which was a good thing as far as my recovery.
"Because you're a gimp," she said and slowed down to let me catch back up with her, we went out on walks together all the time, pretty much just to bring my strength back up, I had been a couch potato up until I got my cast off.
"Hey, that's not nice," I said throwing my arm around her shoulder when she was by my side and she walked up against me, both of us slowing down a little. The sun was starting to set casting a pink shadow across the earth, and the air was warm and just slightly breezy, in other words it was perfect out. I could walk by her side forever knowing that my life was perfect now, or at least it was perfect enough for me to not want anything more in life. Maybe to be able to relax and not have to worry about something like what had recently happened to happen again, but that wasn't a big problem, I was a little more alert than before, and really didn't want to leave town again, I guess I just had this fear set into me now.
"Just telling you the truth," she said resting her head on my shoulder, both of us as close to each other as we could get. I guess I liked to hold onto moments like this now, after all I was lucky to even be around anymore, I had to appreciate life now, I was lucky.
"You know what?" Sam asked me.
"It was nice for a while when we were lost, ya know. I mean… it did get us a little closer. It did also make us enjoy life a little more; it wasn't all that bad, other than the fact that it was a near death type thing…"
"Yeah, I guess it was a good thing, but I wouldn't do it again," I said, thinking about how much pain I was in before, the little pain I had left was nothing, and hardly bothered me.
"Of course not… but I was just saying, we wouldn't be here right now if it weren't for it all happening, although when it was happening we thought we would never make it to here."
"Yep, that's for sure."
We got up to my house, and we both walked inside, and the house was dead silent.
"This is odd," I said, looking around, all the lights and everything were turned off. Sam and I both walked up the stairs trying to keep quiet for some reason, probably because the slightest noise sounded so loud. When I got to my door I stopped, it felt like there was something that was going to happen, but I pushed it open slightly anyways.
"Danny! Sam!" My mom said jumping out at the two of us and Sam screamed slightly until it hit her what was going on, then she looked around thinking that she was stupid, hoping no one had noticed what she had done.
"What was up with that?" I asked, and a huge smile formed across her face, my dad and Jazz stepped out as well, they weren't into the whole trying to give Sam and I a heart attack thing.
"Guess what?" She asked as though trying to keep some big surprise from me, like as though I would really care.
"What's that?" I asked, with absolutely no excitement in my voice at all. The last time she surprised me it almost got me killed. No, not from the surprise, but from the skiing trip.
"Look!" She said handing me papers, and Sam and I stared down at them for a second then I looked back up at her then down at the papers again. I couldn't believe she was going to do this to me.
"Ohh… thanks," I said, trying to sound happy about it, and she smiled then they all walked out of my room, but she had to make sure she got her last words in, "I knew you would like it Danny!"
I closed the door behind them all and walked slowly back to my bed staring down at the paper the whole time. Sam and I both sat down and at the same time took our glances off the paper to have our eyes meet each others.
"You have got to be kidding me," Sam said, and I shook my head, "It's sitting right there…"
"Why though? We're not actually…"
"We have to Sam; my mom was so excited about it…"
"So! She should understand!" She yelled at me, and I tossed the papers to the ground and fell backwards and let out a long sigh. I picked up my pillow and tossed it across the room, not in anger, but more as in I just needed to throw something for some reason, I didn't really know why, it just had to be done. She sighed as well and leaned up against the wall, and I sat up a little to do the same.
"Sam, it's been a few months… she probably figures I was over that."
"Yeah… you're right."
"It can't be that bad, we know what to stay away from this time…" I said, half consumed in the thought of the new vacation trip she had planned out for us. Camping in the woods in Colorado. It wasn't snow… at least. And besides that, we could just remain in our tent… the whole time, never leaving it for one second to try and enjoy ourselves.
"I guess we can only find out…"
