New fanfiction that really doesn’t feel like one…

A dear friend and I wrote a series of fan fictions that have more or less morphed into 99% originals, and I’d love it if you would check it out and leave a review! Thanks! Xoxo

Let’s Get Out Of This Country

The sun was beating down on me through the windshield of the vehicle and I could feel every bump of the railroad tracks through the seat as we passed over them on a hazy early summer afternoon. The longing to just leave, pick a new direction and hope to end up once again home rose thicker than the humid air. “Let’s go, just go.” I wanted to go home, hours away. 
My companion is sensible, too much so. “What will you wear? We have nothing packed.”

I could not keep the tears from falling behind them, hoping my companion would not notice. 
“We could get packed. In an instant,” I appealed. I pointed a manicured finger toward the window. “I want to go east.”
We rode in an uneasy silence, unsure what to do. Sometimes the fulfillment of the heart’s deepest yearnings.

~I was never a risk taker in my younger years. No way. I used my shyness as a wall. It protected me from disappointment, failure and rejection. Unfortunately, it also isolated me from life. It prevented me from finding out what COULD happen and what I could MAKE happen.  I eventually chipped away at the wall, taking the last of it out with some good swift kicks…
