I couldn't sleep at all last night. Even though Aidan is locked up, I still feel unsafe because Kyla and Mrs. Davies escaped. It's just a little too much to handle at the moment. But it seems this day is much worse.
I pull up and spot Spencer at her locker and the whole student body staring at her, giving her dirty looks. I walk over to her.
"Hey.." I wrap my arms around her and pulled her into a hug. I can stay like this forever. "How are you feeling?"
"I don't even know, just trying to stay afloat." Yeah, I know the feeling.
"Well, this weekend we are going away. A road trip." She gives me a concerned look. So I reassure her. "We need to get away from here for a little while. I asked your mom she said it was okay. We both need this Spence." I beg.
Spencer looks me in the eyes and then touches my shoulder. "Yeah, sure. It'd be a nice change. Let's get to class."
"Wait. There is something I have to do…" I stand up on top of the lunch table in the Quad and I shout, "Whatever you think you heard about Spencer is wrong! She saved my life so many times. While everyone believed in a psychotic asshole, she believed in me! Thanks to her he's rotting in a jail cell! Just wanted to clear the air." With that I hopped off the table and ran to a smiling Spencer.
"I can't believe you did that. You didn't have to." Spencer grabbed my hand.
"Yes, I did. You are my hero. Don't ever forget that Spencer Carlin." I smiled and so does she. We walked hand in hand to our next class.
"Please be safe. And call me every hour till you get to the hotel." My mother shouts.
"Yes, mom. I love you. Tell dad and Glen I love them too!" And with that we sped off.
I actually couldn't wait to get the hell out of L.A. Ash was right, a change of scenery is what we need. I love her convertible. The wind in our hair, leaving all our troubles behind for a weekend sounds perfect.
"I'm glad we are here, together." I hear her say. I know she's in pain. I can see it. We both have been through traumatizing experiences the last few weeks or so. Still she holds it together when the world expects her to fall apart.
"So am I." I smile. "So this hotel has everything, huh?" She grins from ear to ear.
"Yeah it does. Luckily my father left two huge accounts for only me. My mother doesn't have access to it.." Speaking of her mother brought an odd look upon her face.
"What's wrong, Ash?" Now I'm concerned.
"Oh..just thinking where she could've gone. And where ever she went I hope she fucking stays away. For good." She sighs deeply as I grabbed her hand to calm her down.
"Don't worry; I think we've seen enough of her and Kyla, hopefully for a long time." I really do hope so because if they come back, I wouldn't know how to deal.
She smiles, "I'm sure we won't." We pulled up to a red stop light as we are singing along to the radio I turn my head the car next to me looked familiar. I took off my sunglasses to get a better look and the car window rolls down with a young woman in sunglasses, smiles at me. I smile back until she took off her shades and it was Kyla! Smiling evilly as she pulled off in another direction.
"What the fuck was that about? She went through a red light. I can't stand reckless drivers." Ash shook her. And I sat there still. So still I heard my heartbeat quicken. I must be seeing things. I must be.
"Uh, Spence? Hello? You there?" Ash knocks me out of my trance. I swallow hard.
"Yeah. Sorry. Just thought I saw something.." I trailed off hoping she doesn't catch on.
"Something? Like a crazy bitch going through a red light? Some times I hate driving." Ash sighs and I plaster a small smile on my face..
"Yeah, crazy drivers.." And she blasts the radio as we continue to drive to our destination. I sit there in the car, hoping and praying that what I saw was just a figment of my imagination. God, please let it be just a figment..
*Thanks guys for all the reviews. I know it took me so long to complete this. I am so sorry. There will be a sequel to this. Called "Final Destination" look for it. Thank you everyone.*
