Distance

Ariana Haze


One coin away from passing the toll and I was here. I got out of my car. The night sky was between blue and black. I guess I would call it midnight blue. I stood outside listening to the grasshoppers, imagining all the wild life in this random forest: Owls, Wolves, bears raccoons. I’m pretty sure only one out of four of these animals were actually there, but tonight my imagination ran wild. The drive back was a little uncomfortable knowing what I had to do. I walked down the stairs and announced to my family I was finally moving out.
