I swore up and down that I wasn't going to write any stories tonight. I thought I should take a night off...and well, here I am...sad huh? :)
Just kidding, thanks for the support!!!
"Mr. and Mrs. Brandon I would like to speek with آپ in private. Susan, could آپ please take the girls out to the pond, یا the maze while I speak to their parents." He asked the receptionist.
"Yes Dr. G." Susan کہا
She reached her hands out so that we could take her hands, I wasn't sure I wanted to this but Cynthia grabbed on right away and I knew I had to go to protect her if nothing else.
Oh no, it's time for بستر checks again. Please be patient, this is my best therapy and the way that G talks I will make it out of here soon...one way یا another. Whatever that means."
That was the end of the entry, I put the book down on the rock اگلے to me and looked out over the mountains that surrounded me.
I was enjoying the scnene when I heard someone running in my direction. I closed my eyes to see who it would be and was shocked to see that it was everyone.
-------- -------- -------- ---------
I took the book and put it inside my jacket. I closed my eyes and began to stare out at the scenery again.
I knew it would be just a سیکنڈ before my family came around the corner, but I thought it would be fun to play dumb.
I sat on the bluff swinging my feet when everyone came running around the corner. I turned my head and looked back at everyone, suprise دکھانا on my face.
"What's going on?" I asked inocently.
"You disappeared, we thought آپ went hunting, but it was hours ago." Esme کہا coming over and wrapping her arms around me.
"Oh Esme, I'm sorry. I lost track of the time." I کہا as I hugged her back.
Carlisle came over and bent down so that he was on my eye level.
"You know the rules, آپ have to tell someone." He کہا sternly, but winked at me at the end.
I smiled up at him and looked around at everyone else. Rosalie was glaring at me, I wasn't sure what that was all about but I'm sure I would find out. Emmett was looking around bored, no big shock with that one. Edward was smirking at me, I knew that he knew what I just read. He knew what I was doing up here, and that I had just read another entry. He wasn't going to give me a hard time, he was very understanding. Jasper was the last that I saw, he walked over and sat اگلے to me. I smiled up at him and put my head on his shoulder.
"I'm sorry everyone, I know that I made آپ worry. I didn't mean to, I just wanted to be alone for a while, and I found this place and it's so beautiful." I said.
There was a moment of silence, when I had a thought.
"I need to talk to Edward and Jasper please. I have something private...that they will understand. I mean no offense, please be understanding of my needs." I کہا pleedingly.
Carlisle smiled at me and stood up looking at the rest of the family. He motioned for everyone to leave, took Esme's hand and turned back to look over his shoulder.
"Don't be too long, we need to have a campfire still." He کہا smiling.
We all nodded and I giggled as I heard Rose grumble about having to actually stay the night in the tent.
When everyone was gone I turned to Edward and Jasper. I explained to them how I came up here to get away and also to read this. I took the journal out and put it on the rock infront of me.
"Alice, آپ should have کہا something, I would have come with you." Jasper کہا as he put his head on mine.
"I know Jazz, I just needed to do this one alone. I wanted to know, I didn't think I could go too long without reading it. I'm finally getting everything back, I am filling in the area where nothing was before.
Edward walked over and sat down infront of me, he took the book and found the spot where I left off.
"Do آپ want to do another chapter? We have a while before Calisle will come back for us." He said.
"I would love it if آپ and Jasper would stay, I know that the end is near....or somehow I know." I کہا as I shrugged my shoulders.
"Could آپ please Edward?" I asked quietly.
"Anything for you." He thought and I smiled back at him.
"Ok this one is dated April 28th." He کہا as he cleared his throat unnecessarily.
"I am getting مزید freedom, they let me go outside today. That was the first time since...well since...well. Ok I don't remember really, but it was a lot of fun and very overdue. Now where was I?
Cynthia and I walked out the doors, each holding a hand of the receptionist Susan.
We walked down a stone path across a small field and towards a small pond where a family of ducks were swimming happily.
"Ohhhh look Mary!!" Cynthia کہا as she took off running down the ہل, لندن to the pond.
I smiled and took off after her, I grabbed her hand as she got to the edge. She was so excited that I think she would have ran into the water if I wouldn't have stopped her.
We sat on the edge and watched the ducks swim around and the babies follow. It was so cute, it was such a happy moment that I forgot that my parents were meeting with the doctor.
When we got bored watching the ducks Susan took our hands again and lead us back around the field to a hedge that was تقسیم, الگ کریں and had a metal arch between two places.
"Ok girls, here is the maze. What آپ want to do is go in here, and try to find your way out the other side. I will be waiting on the other side when آپ finish. If آپ get lost یا need help just yell and I will come help." She کہا with a big smile.
Cynthia and I ran into the maze as fast as we could, we couldn't see anything but green all around us and the sky above. We ran and tried diffrent directions, running into dead ends a few times. It seemed like we were in there forever when we heard Susan humming and knew the direction that we had to go.
We ran out of the maze and fell on the ground out of breath and laughing at eachother.
We lay there for a while not moving until we heard voices heading in our direction. I rolled over onto my stomach and looked to see Dr. Gordon, Mother and Father heading down the ہل, لندن towards us. They all looked happy, and I thought that was a good sign.
"Mary, I have had a long conversation with your parents." Dr. Gordon said.
"Yes, we think we know how to help آپ with you...*ahem*....problem" My Father said.
I suddenly loss all joy and happy things that I had found today. I took a deep breath and blew it out rather loudly.
"Mary, would آپ like to stay here?" Dr. G asked as he sat on the ground across from me.
"No sir. I would not like to stay thank you, I would like to go ہوم please." I said.
"Mary, I think آپ misunderstood. آپ WILL be staying here. They have treatments that the doctor thinks could help you." My father کہا as he stood اگلے to my mother.
I suddenly started crying, I knew that my vision was coming true. I was going to be left here, I was going to get whatever these "treatments" were that this doctor had convinced my parents were necessary.
I wanted to get up and run, but I knew that I wouldn't be able to get away. I crawled over to my parents and knelt at their feet.
"I promise to be good, please please please don't leave me." I sobbed.
I buried my head into their knees and I felt my mother begin to reach for me. For some reason her hand never made it to my head, I looked up and saw that father had grabed her hand and stopped her from comforting me.
**I'm sorry I have to stop here, it's too much. I can't keep writing this is bring back too many memories.***"
"Oh Alice, I'm sorry that was all there is. The end just stopped, the page is smudged and there isn't anymore written." Edward کہا as he gently placed the book back into my lap.
We sat there for a while, none of us saying anything. I don't think there were words that would help what we just read.
I was so hurt, that was my father. Why wouldn't he comfort me? Why would he stop my mother from helping me? I couldn't make it make sense.
"Alice? Alice??" Jasper کہا as he shook my shoulders.
"Yes, we should go now. We have to camp." I کہا shutting myself down.
I knew this wasn't the best response but it was the only response I could handle at this point. My دل was broken and I wanted to be alone, I knew that these two weren't going to let me be alone for a while and deep down I was greatfull for that.
