“I know, I know, coffee would be good. Thank you,”
Shane got up and walked into the kitchen and turned on the coffee machine. There was a knock on the door. Bette opened the door and two uniformed police officers stood there. She moved out of the way and let me them.
“Good evening Ms Porter,”
“Hi, have you found her?”
“No, I’m sorry we’ve found her car about 200 miles from her, it was out of gas. She’s on foot now. We are still looking for her but she’s in a wild area away from the city. If she doesn’t want to be found she won’t be.”
“Please don’t give up on her,” Bette begged.
“We won’t. We just wanted to keep you informed.”
“Thank you, please find her if you can, her son needs her. I need her.”
“We will do our best.” The officer said.
Tina took a deep breath, the cold air filling her lungs as she walked. She had walked out of the woods onto the road. She was tired. she felt guilt. Guilt that she had left her son. That she had left Bette sleeping. There was so much emotion, so much going around in her head. she couldn’t cope with it. She wanted to scream, she wanted the mental pain to stop. She needed it to stop. The memories of her father, her mother. The memories she had hidden for so long in the back of her mind. The pain she had kept secret and explained why she was the way she was.
Tina rubbed her arms. She could feel the cuts she had managed to do with a sharp piece of glass she had found. She had needed physical pain to stop the mental ones. She could feel the blood still running down her arm. She stumbled; she was weak. She hadn’t eaten or drank in hours. She heard a car coming towards her. She took a deep breath making the choose, did she run into the road and end it all or would she stay where she was. Her mind was racing and she had to make that snape decision.
She moved out of the way, she took a deep breath. She saw it was a police car. They slowed when they saw her and simply sat on the floor and let the tears flow again.
