TJ walked through the front door holding a pizza for dinner. "Hey
Dad." He said setting the pizza down on the table. "Where is
"Out," He said from where he was sitting drinking his 3rd beer.
TJ looked at him.
"Dad what's going on? It's Thursday we always have family dinner
on Thursday." Dad looked at him.
"Fine get your sister and I will call your mother." He sighed
getting up as the door knocked. He opened the door as Mom was
putting her key in the lock. "Hey," He whispered.
"Hey," Mom whispered back.
"I'm sorry I yelled at you and Ryan. I was just mad." He sighed
"I know. Come on its pizza Thursday." She said taking Dad's
TJ knocked on my door. "Ryan, the pizzas here." He said. His brow
knotted in confusion as he heard nothing in my room. "Ryan," He
said a little louder. Felix meowed causing TJ to try to open the
locked door. "Ry open the door." He commanded. He sighed and
pulled out a gift card from his wallet and slid it in the crack
in the door causing it to open. "Ryan?" He called. Felix meowed
from where he was snuggled under my blankets. He saw my open
window, causing his eyes to widen. He ran to the kitchen were Mom
and Dad were putting plates out. "She's gone."
"What? TJ what do you mean?" Mom asked.
"Ryan got out of the window." Dad looked at the driveway.
"She took her truck." He said grabbing his cell phone. TJ grabbed
his car keys. "TJ where are you going?" He asked dialing it.
"I'm going to deal with that douche bag." He said storming
Owen opened the door to look at a pissed TJ. "What are you doing
here?" He asked. TJ punched him in the face sending him
"Were the hell is my sister?" He asked punching him again. Owen
grabbed his fist.
"I don't know where she is? Why would I? She is your problem
now." He smirked causing TJ to tackle him to the ground.
"Do you ever talk about her like that, ever." He said punch him
in the stomach causing him to lose his breath.
"I can talk about her anyway I want to. She is my girlfriend. Not
yours." He smirked as TJ punched him again causing his nose to
"Where is my sister?" He growled.
"I don't know she stormed out of here about 3 hours ago. I
haven't seen or heard from her since." He said. TJ punched him
one more time before getting up and ran back to his car. He
speeded home to were Mom and Dad were in the kitchen. Dad was on
the phone as Mom was folding and refolding a dish towel.
"Did you find her?" Mom asked jumping up. TJ shook his head.
"All I know is that she left the base about 3 hours ago. Nothing
more." Mom sat down and pushed head in her hands. "It will be
okay Mom, we will find her." TJ said putting a hand on his
shoulder. Mom put her hand on top of his.
"God I'm such an idiot. Why did I yell at her?" Dad said slapping
"You were mad Dad, she'll come home. I know it." TJ sighed. "I
know she will, I can feel it." He kissed Mom's head and grabbed 2
pieces of pizza and walked to his room. He picked up his phone
and dialed my cell phone………
