I think I was lost. Oh I wish my Alice was with me, she would know where to go. I promised her only two days and I would be back or she sinabi she would have to come and find me.
The sun rose above my head, casting long shadows on the trees around me. I blinked as I burst out the woods, into the sunlight.
I pulled a dark grey hood over my head to keep my face sheltered. The town was old and run down but I could see a man in the fields working away. I was in Texas, I was home.
“Would ya’ll like some help?” I asked the accent slipping back into my voice, the one I thought I had lost, but the one that never failed to make Alice smile.
“You from around here?” The man asked looking up.
“Yes sir.” I replied.
“You seem to be one of us, know your manners, but your too pale, aren’t you?”
“I guess. But I’m defiantly from here sir.” I replied.
“Well, thanks but no, I’m managing just fine.”
I nodded moving and breathing properly again. I’m glad I hadn’t got to close. I walked on a little further until I noticed gates surrounding an over grown grassy area.
In the middle of the tall swaying damo was a crumbling building, the door wide open. It didn’t look familiar like the rest of the town did, through the haze I remembered. Up until recently I was fighting back memories, I didn’t want to know them, until Alice convinced me. She sinabi that I should find out as much as my past as possible, as I had the memories she didn’t. I walked on past deciding that If it wasn’t familiar it wasn’t where I was looking for.
I had probably played around the area as a child. I spent the rest of the araw looking around trying to find the right place, I remember loads of the other places but I could find the place I was looking for. And tomorrow I had to go back to Alice or she was going to start getting worried.
