The open road is calling. I feel like my life is stretching out in front of me, with endless possibilities. I don’t know what I’ll do, where I’ll end up. Maybe I’ll go back to school, do something meaningful with my life. The only thing that really matters is that I have Colt by my side. We can go anywhere and do anything, we can be free.
I love you all so much, I hope you know that. I’ll see you all at the wedding, and I’ll be sure to keep in touch after that. This isn’t really goodbye, it’s a fresh start.
*reaches across his stomach to rub at his other arm, his bottom lip shaking, tears starting to run down his cheeks, before he nods slowly* Y-yeah… Yeah okay…
-hugs him close again, tears streaming his face- I love you, Alex. No matter what, you’re family. Don’t forget that.
Feels like it is…
It’s not. I just can’t stay here anymore, this place is like…crushing my soul. -huffs a half-hearted laugh, trying to lighten the mood- It’s not like we won’t keep in touch, Alex.
I need to go sleep for a bit, I had to work at 4 am this morning and it was brutal. D: Be back a little later for more feels. <333
It… Never seemed like it was that bad on you… But I guess it really has been awhile… *pulls back, wiping at his eyes*
It didn’t hit me until the last few months. I never told anyone but Colt, but there were days when I just wanted to run away from this place with him and never look back…I want to give him a beautiful life, and I can’t do that here with all the backstabbing and the drama and the murder. I just can’t.
-keeps both hands on Alex’s shoulders, tears in his eyes- Come to the wedding, Alex. Please.
*puts a hand to his mouth, starting to cry* Wh-where are you going?
-rocks Maddie a little, watching Seamus and sniffling- We’re staying n New York for now, Benji set us up in a new apartment while we get the company up and running. Not sure where we’ll land, though.
