She opened one eye and looked around without moving her head. She sighed and adjusted herself in the uncomfortable seat wishing the turbulence would just past. Eventually, the plane calmed down, and she shut her eyes again. She hadn't been sleeping well over the last week. Right now, all she wanted to do was sleep, but too much was on her mind.

An hour later, she gave up sleeping. She looked out the window over the dark sky. She could see the dark silver outline of the clouds and a couple of stars here and there.

"Excuse me, Miss. Do you need anything?"

"No, no thank you," She said trying to choke back the tears.

"Okay," She smiled sweetly. "Let me know." She nodded in return as the stewardess walked away. Meredith put her head back on the head rest.

She looked over at the two car seats. The two toddlers were sleeping soundly. A smile crossed her face as she adjusted the blankets over their bodies before turning her head towards the front and letting her eyes shut.

"We will be landing in Seattle International Airport in ten minutes. I hope you enjoyed your flight and will decide to fly with us again. Have a great stay in Seattle." There was a loud click as the pilot turned off the intercom.

Seattle. It had been a long time since she had been in Seattle. A lot had changed since she stepped onto the plane two and a half years ago. But one thing stayed the same; she's still very heartbroken.

By two in the morning, Meredith was in the hotel room that she was staying at. She laid down in the bed and stared at the ceiling.

"I wonder how they will react." She thought.

She left on good terms with her friends. It wasn't like she left in the early hours of the morning. She told them and they even drove her to the airport. They understood that she needed time. After she left is when things got a little different. A lot different. Things were hard and are still hard but it was time for her to finally return home.
