I’m trying to blend into the people who are out on Whyte Avenue at night. I’m starving but afraid to stop. I step into a noisy pool hall blending in with a blonde guy and his buddy. We team up and win some money from teams of other Pool players.
I’m near the airport and I sigh at the far walk ahead until I find a bicycle unlocked. I ride hard and buy an early plane ticket to Vancouver. I devour breakfast first.
As I leave the Vancouver airport on the train, I see him. How did Kieran find me? I sob earnestly, as I reach my Motel room.
Kieran catches me leaving after sleeping. He holds me as I shiver at the chemistry between us. I can’t risk being his girl.
” Why are you running Audrey? Don’t you know I’ll always find you? You’re my person, “he murmurs.
“I’m afraid” I whisper ” I’m scared of having a happy life. I’m scared I’ll lose it.”
Kieran grasps my hands, ” Audrey, I love you and will never leave you. You don’t have to run anymore.” Kieran has said the right thing. I have security.
