Are you still alive? I'm having trouble closing my eyes and not thinking about you out there all alone in the dark. I hope your friend had a good evening and that she's on her way back to take you home. Can you send me an email to let me know when you're safe?
I think your sister sounds cool. Maybe one day I'll get to meet her when she finally comes home. You have to keep the faith that she'll be back. Sometimes escapes take planning and time. I'm choosing to think of her as a strong woman who is biding her time in a small town, waiting for the perfect opportunity to get home to your family. Is her car missing too? Is his? Did they leave anything behind? Do you have any pictures of them?
I accept your dare. The hardware store in my town opens at 10am. I'm ready whenever you are.
Here's your truth: What are three things you want to accomplish before you die?
I'll take a truth.
Your friend forever....no matter where the world takes me,
P.S. Maybe it's because I look forward to your emails more than anything or because you are the closest thing to a true friend that I've had in a while, but I get this feeling when I disappear—I'll still be reaching out to you.
*****Don't forget to vote! What three things do you want to accomplish?
