As I sat on the plane, I thought about how my life would be like in Springfield Illinois.
Many thoughts went through my head. Would it really help me forget?
Can I really forget about my past, if so how could it even be possible?
I wondered if my dad would take me back after everything he went through with my mom.
I wondered if I was entitled to a happy ending, or ever after or maybe someday even love.
And so on…my mind just doubted.
I couldn’t stop thinking about how much my life would change after the move.
The plane landed and I sighed.
Welcome to Springfield, I thought and sighed again.
‘’Know this new girl coming?’’ Brandon laughed punching my shoulder.
I shrugged. ‘’Why would I know her?’’
He shrugged his broad shoulders. ‘’Because, I hear she’s smoking hot.’’
I wasn’t in the mood to talk to anyone, much less about this stupid new girl. Why did everyone think I knew her? Or even cared?
‘’What does that have to do with me?’’ I asked furiously.
He laughed. ‘’Because you’ve dated all the pretty ones, surely you know them all by heart.’’
‘’So?’’ He frowned at my quietness—apparently it was a weird thing for them.
I sighed. ‘’So what?’’
‘’What’s her name?’’
‘’Just stop pestering me about this stupid new girl, dammit.’’ I snapped.
‘’Whoa Seth. Relax.’’
A few moments of silence lasted.
‘’Know what?’’ He asked, not giving up.
‘’Let’s make a bet.’’ He laughed.
