“What happens now?”
“You can go.”
Where was I supposed to go? We were sitting in his car, in a parking lot miles from my house. I didn’t move. I couldn’t remember how to. I wasn’t sure I had control over my body anymore.
He shifted into drive and brought me home. The drive was just a few miles, but it felt cross-country. We sat in silence the whole way. The radio had been playing quietly, but he shut it off without saying a word.
“Ok.” He said softly, barely audible.
I opened my mouth to speak, but found no words. Nodding, I left.
