Chapter 1

“Did I really just do this?” as the bus come to a stop Paige felt overwhelmed and excited all at once. “Did I really just ride a bus from Southern Illinois to Southern Florida? A new life? What is a new life? “I’ve lost it!” “I have lost my mind…”

As Paige stepped off the bus began to walk toward the beach her thoughts went back to why she left.

(10 days earlier)

“What do you mean your getting married?” “What about us?” After 4 years of what I thought was crazy bliss, Chris had announced his engagement to Tina. “Why Chris?” Her tone almost pitiful. “Your too young “ Christ replied. “ This is what I need to do Paige” he was not happy nor was he sad. This was not a love relationship I had been dumped for, it was convienience.

With that, gone was 4 years I had given to my first love. I don’t think I could ever love like that again. Paige thought her heart would explode. Gone were all my hopes and dreams..well at least here. At this point are my thoughts even sane? Paige knew she had to get away.

Graduation was behind her and in 22 days she would be 19 at least she was an adult! Thank God I saved all my babysitting money for the last year!! Along with the small amount she got from church camp she had a grand savings of $2989.55. She definitely wasn’t a millionaire but that would get her to Florida and then she would need a job immediately.

My plans are all but immature... Paige thought. Go to Florida, live on the beach, get a job, get a home, own my own business flipping homes. Paige swayed from the thought.

Duffel bag was packed with only essentials, flashlight with taser, towels, clothes, toiletries, extra pair of shoes, light food, nothing more.
