I fluttered my eyes open, it felt like my whole body is bruised. Then I remembered, I smiled, at least it's worth it. I looked at my watch, it's just 9 in the morning, it's a good thing my watch is water proof. But wait, how did I end up getting here? Did I got too tired not remembering how I end up here? I turned and saw that Jack is sleeping beside me. I stared at his face and noticed some freckles that I haven't noticed before. His eyes opened and I hurriedly closed my eyes to act asleep.
"You do know that I know that you're awake right?" He asked.
"You're awake?" I asked him opening my eyes.
"No, I am sleeping." He said sarcastically.
I rolled my eyes and smiled. Suddenly my parents popped into my head, I turned away from him.
"Why? What's wrong?" He asked.
"Nothing, I just missed my parents." I said while facing him.
"You can go home." He said, sadness in his voice.
"No, I won't leave you and even if I come home, they're still busy in their work." I explained.
"Do you want me to come with you?" He asked teasingly.
"Yeah! That's right. Come with me." I said excitedly.
"No, I'm just kidding." He said while shaking his head.
"Please? Just a vacation." I asked him in a pleading voice but he just shake his head while sitting up.
"My whole body is aching, who will drive for me?" I asked him.
"Oh come on." He said while rolling his eyes and I smiled.
"Please?" I asked him while fluttering my eyes and he nodded.
"Yay!" I shouted while sitting up.
"Thank you." I whispered then I hugged him and he hugged back.
I feel so excited but sad at the same time. I'm gonna miss this place, but it's just a couple of days. In fact, I don't know why I still want to go home. For sure, mom and dad is at their work.
"Are you already done?" He asked.
"Yes." I answered. He nodded and walked towards the small door.
I climbed down the tree with my clothes and I put them in my suitcase. I told Jack not to bring clothes anymore, maybe dad has small clothes that may fit Jack. I already taught Jack our way from here to there. It's a little hard cause I can't remember some ways.
I saw Jack standing beside the beach, I walked towards him and he smiled at me.
"We'll be back in just a couple of days.." I assured him.
"We're not sure about that.. what if your parents don't allow you and what if they don't like me being with you?" He asked worriedly.
"I'm already 18, I can do what I want. This is my life, I am the one who will make decisions." I said assuringly then he smiled.
We walked towards the car. I sat on the shotgun while he sat on the driver seat. He sighed and looked at me, I put my hand on top of his hand while smiling at him, way of saying everything's gonna be alright. He smiled then he focus on the road and started the engine. I hope that everything will be alright.. I leaned on the window while looking at the road.
"Mage, wake up." Jack said and I slowly opened my eyes.
"Are we there already?" I said trying to adjust my view. I didn't know that I fell asleep.
"No, we're on a gas station, just some stop over. Do you want anything to eat? or do you want to pee or something?"
"Yeah." I said and closed my eyes.
"Yeah what?" He asked while tapping my shoulder, I opened my eyes, now I am fully awake.
"I'll just head to the bathroom. Wait for me." I said and he nodded.
After I came out, I saw Jack waiting for me while leaning on the car. He looked at me and I motioned for him to come over.
We entered the convenient store and bought chips and drinks so we won't get bored or hungry.
After that, we continued our little road trip to our house.
