"Well, let's go back home," Emm smiled. Rose grinned excitedly, everyone's eyes on me. I caught onto the excitement contagiously but behind all my positive emotions there was a sense of doubt. Dad looked at me. He knew what I was thinking & spoke up. "How about we take Nessie to get some other things before we go, I'm sure a little side trip wouldn't be too troublesome." "Sure, darling girl," Esme grinned at me as mum took my hand. We began running. It was so cool! Even though I knew we'd done this many times in the past, experiencing it now, I got the adrenaline all over again. Together we moved through the underbrush silently, like we could've just been flying. I didn't even have to worry about slowing down so they could keep up, they definitely were not human & neither was I. My energy, strength, speed, everything had just doubled entirely. Finally, i fit in, I was comfortable. The trip back to the house seemed to be quite quick. We reached the front door & before I could pull my keys out of my back pocket Jazz had already opened it. I raised my brow in question. Jazz just shrugged with a smirk. I laughed as I walked inside, my family was so quiet behind me that I had to rely on my sense of smell to make sure they were still there. Who knows, maybe I was having some happy dream because 'the man up stairs' just wanted to tease me after I woke up. Someone chuckled from right behind me. "I sware, you're are most definitely not dreaming, Renesme." Dad said, I could hear the smile in his voice. "Thank god," I murmured with slight sarcasm, smiling too. Vicki & Michael weren’t home – they were at work this time of day – and Toby (Vicki & Michael’s son in which I had no blood relation too) – was at Primary School. So, no one was home which meant I had an easy way out. I reached my room & went straight to my cupboard. My family chose to sit on my bed. Feeling their eyes on me, watching what I was doing, it made me feel funny; nervous almost. I tried reaching for my converse bag which was high up but I couldn’t reach it. Strong arms wrapped around my waist & lifted me up so I could get my bag. I laughed as Emm put me back down & tickled me around my ribs. I giggled & ran over to dad but he followed & didn’t stop tickling me. “Who’s the best? Who’s the best,” Emm snarled mockingly. “Mum is. Mum’s the best!” I giggled more; hysterical now. “What did you say?” He growled again which jus made me laugh more. “MUM!” I screamed, still gasping through my own giggles. “Wrong answer,” he said. My family was laughing now as well & I think Emm was trying his hardest not too either. Emm wouldn’t stop. “Okay, okay, you’re the best,” I announced. The tickling stopped. “Pardon,” Emm questioned tauntingly. “Emm is the best,” I said breathlessly. Everyone laughed with me. I sat up, breathing deeply & resting my cheek on dad’s cool shoulder. He rubbed my back & chuckled. “So, what are we packing?” Alice jumped up slightly; the bed didn’t even jostle with her sudden movement. I gave her a look & she smiled knowingly at me. “You want your 3 favourite T-shirts, State Athletics jacket, old denim jeans with the holes in them, your guitar & pictures of your friends. That's it right?" Nodding, she smiled at me & began rummaging through my clothes. There was one last thing I had to do though. I had to say goodbye to my friends, I couldn't leave without letting them know that I was happy & safe. Obviously I couldn't tell them the full truth but they were my friends, especially Louie & Connah & Dillon. "We can drop your letters off at their houses on our way to the airport Renesme," dad whispered in m ear. I nodded, grateful. I blinked back tears, saying goodbye was the one thing that I was afraid of. "It always is," Dad replied to my thoughts. I went to my desk & pulled out some lined pieces of paper & pen. I started writing, making it up as I went along. When i finished them I read them over again hoping they sounded alright. Signing Louie, Connah, Dillon & Michael, Vicki & Toby on the top of their own cards. “I’ll be back in a sec, I’m just gonna put these in an envelope.” I informed them. I got to the kitchen as quiet as a mouse & opened a cupboard to pull out an envelope. I shoved the 4 letters in there & signed the front of it in pen with my name on it & the people the notes were for. I left the envelope on the kitchen bench. Who was I kidding? - As soon as they read their letters my phone would be bombarded with texts & so will my Hotmail. But perhaps this didn't have to be a final farewell, maybe we could stay in touch. I shrugged to myself & ran back into my room. I smiled, they were all still here. My mind wouldn't stop worrying about them possibly dissapearing, to not be real. They were all standing. Emm still had my school bag over his left shoulder & had my other bag on his right. We were all ready to go. Mum gave me an encouraging smile & held her hand out to me. I took it without question, beaming with happiness. Together, we all jumped out my window. "Renesme you're going to have to get on my back, you look like you'll collpase on the ground with tiredness any second." Now that he mentioned it, I was pretty tired. In fact I can't believe I hadn't already fallen asleep. The dizziness must've been getting to me because I felt myself sway a little & when I reached to jump onto Dad’s back I think I lost my footing & fell backwards - although, I didn’t hit the ground. In more than enough time Jazz – he was behind me – had caught me up & was holding me straight. “Are you alright Renesme?” He asked. "Baby girl, are you ok? You must be tired." Rose chimed, strained with worry for me. About two seconds later I was able to make sense of everything & reply. “Yeah I think I tripped out for a little bit then. I need to rest a bit, let’s get going, I’ll probably just fall asleep on the way to the airport anyway,” I yawned. Everyone shared worried glances but no more questions were uttered. It was very comfortable travelling on dads back; it was like we weren’t moving at all which made it easy for me to fall asleep. “Renesme, you need to wake up, we’re at the airport now gorgeous,” I heard someone whisper in my ear. It was mum. “Mmmm,” I grumbled lazily. Someone chuckled close beside me. I think it was Grandpa. When I opened my eyes slightly, I was still on dad’s back but I wasn’t so tired as before. Sliding off I made sure I could stand without swaying before I started to walk. I held mums hand all the way through the quarantine & all the other stuff where they have to check your passports & you gotta walk through those doorway things that check if you have anything you’re not supposed to. Being with them was so much fun, there wasn't one single boring second yet & I didn't think there would be. Many people looked at us in awe. I smiled at them & that just made them more astonished. And this was just the airport. I could really get used to this. Luckily, the plane wasn’t delayed at all & we took off on time. I slept for the first 4 hours of the flight; it took a lot of convincing by my parents that I needed to sleep. I didn’t want to, I wanted to stay up & talk even though I could hardly finish a whole sentence before yawning. But I did dream & that made me wish more than anything that I didn't fall asleep. It was just so real & so much more terrifying…
