Mommy's Sweet Sweet Revenge

Chapter 14: Chasing My Dreams, Literally

After another failed attempt of calling Kaylee, I end the call before the beep of her voice mail. "What are we going to do teddy?" I whisper to my only companion at the moment. I sigh and start to tear up. "I think I miss Kaylee.." I sob into my teddy bear and swallow the lump in my throat hard. "I was a terrible boyfriend and now I'm a terrible little boy." I cry into teddy for a bit before a strike of lightning hits the window and makes me jump. "You know what? I'm sick of running! I'm sick of always giving up! For once..for once I'm going to fight back even when the going gets tough." At that I slip on a hoodie and place teddy in the pocket. I pack some things in my backpack, lace up my sneakers and head for the other side of town.1

I slowly open my door and quietly make my way down the hall. I really don't want to deal with Ethan again. I make my way down the stairs and hear a creek of a door opening, I make a run for the main road. Why am I running? This is college, I can leave whenever I want. I try to reason with myself but my adrenaline is kicked up to the highest notch and I can feel the energy flow all around my body. I couldn't stop running even if I tried. I felt like Forrest Gump, running across the country, not stopping for anything.

After about 20 minutes of non stop running my body decides to give up on me. "Dammit I told you to save your engery!" I lean down and hold my knees. My clothes are dripping from the rain, I'm breathing heavy and coughing up a lung, I pat my chest a few times, I almost feel like a wind up doll, patting my chest to get the air in as if someones turning a crank on my back to get me started back up. That's when I noticed. I rub my sweaty hands down my stomach and feel a flat pocket. "Teddy.." was all I could mutter out between heavy breaths and coughs. I throw my backpack down and sit on top of it, right before kicking it a bit in frustration. "I'm half way there, how could I not notice teddy flying out of my pocket? He could be any where!" Why do I even care? It's just a bear! I sigh, the bear Kaylee gave me. I bury my face in my hands, debating on whether to keep going or to go retrace my steps for my lost friend.

I feel a bright light hitting my face, it can't be the sun can it? Have I really been running for hours? I shake my head as the light gets stronger and closer. I look up from my palms and see headlights, dead in front of my face. "Hey!" a male voice yells from the car. I stand up and grab my bag, getting ready to make a run from whatever creep is staring at me in the early hours of the morning. Maybe they think I need help? Either way I wasn't about to stick around to meet this nice stranger or crazy kidnapper. "Landon wait!" I turn around and squint my eyes trying to see who it was, how do they know my name? Okay now I'm really creeped out! I back up a bit when I see, wait teddy? TEDDY?! He's alive! He found me! He- wait no what the hell am I saying? What's wrong with me? I take a step towards the white car and make my way to the front of the hood. I don't care who this is, I want my teddy. I get a bit closer and I see Ethan? Holding my teddy!

"Hey I was getting up to use my bathroom when I saw you walking down the stairs, before I could ask you where you were headed in this storm you ran and dropped this."
