FWF Free Write Friday; Image Prompt

Freedom, the feeling of no more people telling me what to do. No more parents butting in. I can make my own decisions from here on out.

I just graduated from high school. I was an adult ready to make my own way into the big world. Ready to discover what was forbidden for many years.

I had received a lot of money for graduation gifts. After counting it up I had a total of five hundred dollars. I was out of here. Out of this joint called home. Making plans with my bestie, we were on our way to have a great time.

She and I were taking two weeks and having the time of our lives. Meeting new guys was our number one goal. No more books,we were going to  stay up late, sleep  in late. What could possibly be better?

We didn’t have a destination. We were letting the spirit guide us. We would stop when we needed to and eat where we wanted. The money in my pocket would get us anywhere we wanted to go.

Driving down the open road, listening to the radio. Laughing our asses off. Neither she nor I heard the truck behind us blaring his horn. When we did, it was too late. Our trip was ended too short with five hundred bucks in my pocket.

  1. This reminded me of a similar trip I took with my sister one summer. On the spur of the moment and with only 300 bucks in our pocket, we headed to South Carolina. She had never seen the ocean. It was the best trip of my life. Thank you so much for the memory and for your wonderful story. ♥

    • I am glad you had a great time. Even I did this too. I went with some friends to KY just to hang out. Barely any money, but I had the time of my life. No worries, no time clock, just laughter!!!! Thanks for liking my post Kellile. Glad to see you are back
