Chapter 7 - Sophie
I stumbled out my keys and opened the front door. I wiped my nose and stepped into my house. I opened my closet and grabbed my suitcase; I threw all my clothes into my suitcase. I stumbled out of my closet with my suitcase trailing behind me; I dropped the suitcase on the floor, and got all of my beauty supplies from my bathroom.
I avoided my gaze in the mirror as I grabbed all of my makeup.
I replayed with had just happened
Happiness to sadness
Forgiven to unforgiven
Love to hate for myself
Hopeful to unhopeful
It’s amazing what can change in a few minutes
I sighed and looked into the mirror, my eyes were bloodshot and my cheeks were blotchy.
I sighed and grabbed my towel, ripped jeans, yellow full sleeves shirt. I stripped off my clothes and stepped into the shower, letting the cold water sweep through me
Keefe will come
I quickly hurried with my shower and grabbed my towel. I dried myself and pulled on clothes. I straightened my overlong hair and added some light makeup. I put my makeup in my bag.
Don’t forget Ella
I headed to my bedroom and grabbed my stuffed elephant. My eyes lingered to my bulletin board. I walked over to it and ripped all the drawings off it but kept the picture of me and parents. These were the people I love.
The people I love
I grabbed the photo of Keefe. I folded it neatly and gently placed it in my back pocket
I headed to my kitchen and grabbed my backpack, making sure everything was there. I grabbed my keys.
I looked at my house one last time
This house got me through four years of my life
But now, I have a new beginning
A convalescent one
I’m done feeling sorry for myself
I’m taking my miserable heart and turning it inside out
I’m the stronger Sophie Foster.
