Climbing into the passenger seat, he sat there in silence for a bit with his sister, it felt like the world was crashing down on him, he did his best year round to suppress the emotions about his parents death, he worked hard to put a smile on his face and his thoughts happy, it got to a point within the year that he would become numb to anything concerning the accident, but this one day was the day all the built up, raw emotion was let loose and it was more than Eli knew he could handle, but something he knew was inevitable. Losing himself in his thoughts, Mariza’s voice pulled him back, “Don’t be silly Mari,” his voice was low and soft, shaky a bit, “of course we have to go.” He looked down, holding back the tears that stung his eyes, taking a deep breath before looking back up to Mariza, “It’s just one day, just for today.” He reached over and grabbed one of his sisters hands, giving it a gentle squeeze, reassuring her she could do this too, that she was strong enough. Holding onto it for a few more seconds, his thumb rubbed over her knuckles before his hand returned to his lap, a silent way of letting his sister know he was ready to go.
Mariza turned and looked at her brother, letting a small smile slip onto her face. His touch was reassuring. It always was. Elijah and Eric were the only ones that could comfort her, make her feel safe. Eli was strong, he really was. Mariza hated this day because she hated seeing her brother upset. When Eli removed his hand, she started the car and set off towards the graveyard. After a few minutes, she turned on the radio, unable to stand the sad silence. She smiled slightly when it came on, forgetting that the last time she’d borrowed Eli’s car she had been playing the mixed cd Eric had made her. She looked at Eli, making sure he was okay, holding things together. Soon, they pulled into the graveyard and Mariza parked up, shutting off the engine and taking a deep breath. “Ready?”
i miss this.
I will continue to update this with songs and such.
Oh and thanks everyone for making my summer. I’ve had the best three months.
I might be back on later to say write a paragraph and stuff but right now I just can’t because I’ve had a really bad day and I expected this to make it better but it hasn’t. Its just topped everything off.
I’m not giving in… Nope.. I’m just going to look away.
- Eric: Very good.
- Mariza: Reassuringly good.
Yes, or its syrup. I think.
You might be allergic then.
- Eric: I love you too, Mari.
- Mariza: Good.
- Mariza: I love you.
None of your business..
I’m just wondering why you can’t have pancakes.
but I can’t..gymnastics practice tomorrow morning..
And that means you can’t eat pancakes?
I’m not sad. I’m just.. I don’t even know.
I know. I was just making that clear. To everyone.
Tell me what I can do to get you to tell me. Is it cookies?
Stop saying that sentence Nelson, it can get misinterpreted. Nope. I have cookies already.
I don’t like him like that, just making that clear.
It depends on what you mean by ‘like’ though, honey.
[text] Oh no its not that extreme! Aww, Nelson.
I’m done trying to figure it out. Maybe it’ll all click after I take a couple dozen shots.
Kelvin? You alright?
I do like him anon.
Me and Nelson hang out quite a bit, actually. He brings me cookies.
You misspelt Eric.
