His heart was in his mouth and his mind felt like it was permanently put on vibrate but… He felt alive. He felt alive!
Was this how Ari felt? Was this how she felt when she goes away?
Somehow Ari had convinced him to go away, away from the home he hated so much and now he was on his way to God knows where.
Ari, the spontaneous being that she was, wanted him to move out then but of course he had managed to calm her down and told her that he will leave tomorrow. He had got to pack some stuff at least and now they were here, riding on the sunset, wind in their hair and smiles on their face as they fly off.
He had done some packing. He had taken just a backpack with his clothes, his mother’s necklace and some items from his dad’s drawers. It was not anything his dad would notice, really.
Of course, Ari came with a complete makeover. He did not recognize her and she forced him to change his entire outfit. She bought him a wig! A freaking blonde wig and forced him into wearing some make up. It was tragic but now that they were out there, it did not really feel much.
It was good, to finally feel the blackness that had always engulf him, thin out as he rode away from home. He did not know where he was going, but he finally felt everything was okay.
