My mom is making me do this. This was not part of my plan. She was never supposed to come in my room, snoop around and then confront me as I walk into my room from taking a shower. She practically found every single secret out in one day. She found my drugs, my bowl, my cigarettes, my alcohol stash, and my scars on one day.

Thank god she didn’t find out about my boyfriend, that would’ve pissed her off even more. Not to say that she was pissed, she was more along the lines of fearing for my life and sanity. I think it has been a lot for her to handle, sometimes it is hard to tell with her, it’s as if she tries to block anything I do out these days.

Sending me away to school next year is just her way of getting rid of me, getting me out of her hair. But until then I think she has completely given up on me. I came home last night from a party at midnight, and she didn’t even comment on that at breakfast this morning, I knew that she could tell I was hung-over and that I was coming down off of a high. The only part that scared me was that she didn’t even acknowledge me today at all.

I thought that after she found out things would change a lot; that she would watch me like a hawk. But instead she lets me do what I want. Yeah, she did take away my drugs, my bowl, my cigarettes, my alcohol stash, and my razor, but that doesn’t mean that I won’t get more.

The day after she found out she called me downstairs so I could talk with her and my dad.

“Lenna,” my dad started, trying to keep calm, “is all of this stuff really yours?”

“Well…uhh…” I tried to respond, but words wouldn’t form in my mouth.

“ I know it’s hers,” my mom screeched, “it was all in her room, hidden in random places, like she was trying to hide it. If it wasn’t hers then it wouldn’t have been hidden so well…”

“I see. Well there is only one option that your mom and I can think of…” my dad trailed off.

“You will be going away to school next year. A SPECIAL school, for usually unsolvable cases.” my mom told me.

And so I was told to say goodbye to my friends and get ready to go to this school because they had to send my bags ahead of time so that the school could go through them to make sure that I didn’t bring anything that would “harm” me.

I decided to try and make this the best summer of my life, and the worst summer of my parents life. If they thought that they could get away with scaring me out of my habits so that I didn’t go to this school, they were wrong.

* * * *

It was about a month before I was supposed to go to this school that I crashed. I hadn’t eaten in weeks, or had a good nights sleep, and I was constantly hung-over. I think my parents got their wish, almost.

I went to bed one night, and I couldn’t force myself to get up, no amount of force would get me out of my bed.

“Honey?! HONEY?!” my mom was shouting; when I couldn’t form a response or open my eyes, she freaked out.

I woke up a week later in the hospital. My mom and dad were sitting next to my bed, the looked so stressed I didn’t know what to do.

“Oh! She’s awake.” my mom said, having looked up, she saw my eyes open. My mom and dad left the room and a doctor walked in.

“Hi,” he said, “I am Doctor Hoover, it’s good to see that you have finally awoken.”

“Uh-huh.” I responded, I had no clue what to say to the man.

“You were out for almost a week. Your body shut down due to the abuse that you have recently done to it. All of those drugs, alcohol, and unknown activities really put a strain on your system.”

And with that the doctor walked out of the room and my parents came back in.

* * * *

I went home a week later with all of the “bad” stuff flushed out of my system. And a week after that I was back to my old ways, flying high every night.

A week after that I boarded the plane that would take me to my new school, I was so high that I didn’t even realize until we were in the air that my parents hadn’t told me to bring anything because un-inspected baggage was not allowed. That struck me as odd.

And the plane literally brought me to my school. It was the school’s private plane and it landed in a little field right next to the school. I walked into the main hall, trying to get my room assignment, when an old lady walked in and the doors behind us shut with a slam, but nobody was there.
