\"And he is now in custody and is being taken to the prison. After his Attempted escape his years in prison will be much..\"
i shut the Tv off making the droning of the reporter's voice disappear. \"Mom!\" i called frantically jumping up \"Where's the phone?!?\"
\"Where it should be\" she called from her room. I grabbed it off the dock and ran out onto my porch and dialed her number. Not again Not again! After what her father did this time I have to stop her! before anything happens!
The phone's monotonous ring seemed to last a hundred years but finally \"hello?\"
\"hello? Mrs. Oak? Can I please talk to Jeanne?\" I shot the words out of my mouth so fast I was surprised she even understood what i was saying. I licked my dry lips as I waited for Jeanne's voice. \"hello?\" I almost laughed I was so happy to hear her voice. \"jeanne your not thinking of trying it again are you?\" I said warily
\"Karen I just can't go on! you know that its too late for me to...\"
\"NO!\" i snapped cutting her off \"are you stupid? Its never too late for anything! So what your dad is in jail? Thats no reason to do what your thinking of!\"
\"But I can't live without him!\" I heard her start to cry.
\"Jeanne, yes you can! I know you can! you still have me! Just please! don't do anything! Promise?\"
\"Karen, I..\"
\"Promise!\" I practically screamed at her
\"i-i promise\" She said
\"good\" I said \"Do you want me to come over?\"
\"no..no I'm ok...\" Jeanne's voice cracked and I sighed
\"it'll be fine Bud I promise.\" She grunted and hung up the phone.

I think I stopped her. For tonight at least....
