Chapter 11- Adventure
I woke up screaming in the middle of the night. Tom was quick to come and make sure I was all right. I assured him I was then stared at the ceiling. I really wasn’t all right. I don’t think it was possible for anyone in this situation to be anywhere near all right. I laid there the remainder of the night, jumping at the slightest noises out या inside.
The अगला morning Abigail walked in. “Tom is getting everything ready to get आप safely transported to Lilly’s,” she told me sitting on the end of the bed. I nodded, looking out the window. “Is there anything I can get आप to eat या drink या anything?” she asked me.
I turned to look at her. “I think something to eat would be all right.” I smiled at her and stood up. I needed to get ready. If I was going to be traveling to Wisconsin द्वारा tonight, I would have to be comfortable. I was sure I’d be sleeping the entire time. Even walking a short distance left me breathless. A few मिनटों after Abby left, Tom walked in “Good morning,” he smiled. “How are आप feeling today?”
I laughed, not knowing how to express how I was really feeling in words. “Overwhelmed,” I stated simply.
He continued to smile. “I can imagine, there has been quite a bit going on these past few weeks. You’ve stuck to it though. आप have amazing courage,”
“Do आप really think that Tom?” I asked him sitting back down.
“Of course I do,” he told me grabbing one of my hands. He frowned suddenly and I did as well.
“What?” I asked, a tone of panic was seeping slightly into my voice.
“Your hands are freezing... are आप sick, do आप feel all right?” he asked looking straight into my eyes with his piercing blue eyes.
“I feel perfectly fine, other than the fear that is defiantly going to take a while to get over,” I sighed. That was the truth. If he didn’t believe me, well then that was his problem.
“Are आप sure?” He asked, but before I could assure him I was Abby walked in, I assumed she had heard most of our conversation. The walls in this house were very thin and आप could hear every small movement through the floors. “I’m sure she’s fine Tom. Leave the poor woman alone for two seconds,” she scolded him putting her hands on her hips. A small smile spread across my lips. It was true, I was jealous. Tom and Abby were so happy together, something I’d only truly dreamed about.
Abby turned to me as soon as she कहा that to Tom. “I can bring your खाना up here if you’d like,” she told me. I nodded.
“That would help,” I smiled. “I still have to get dressed,” I told her eyeing Tom. Abby picked up immediately.
“Tom. Go out so she can get ready,” she told him grabbing his hand. He stood up. “Let us know when you’re ready to leave,” he कहा before exiting with Abby. I stood back up and quickly changed, not feeling nearly as ill as I had before. I sat on the bad and waited for Abby to return with my food. I began to think about how wonderful and full of joy my life could be after I escaped from this place. All my greatest nightmares would disappear, maybe for good. This thought alone brought a smile to my face. Abby walked in a moment later. “You look significantly happier,” she told me as she set down a tray with two slices of warm, freshly made रोटी and a glass of दूध on it.
“Well, in a way I am,” I chuckled. “There’s just an idea of a totally new beginning and it’s exciting.”
Abby laughed. “That does sound exciting. Like an adventure,” she looked at me.
“Yes. An adventure. And that sounds very inviting right now,” I smiled taking a bite of the bread.
