The sun rose and the light invaded. I rose with no sleep. I walked to the closet pulled out my running shoes and workout clothes. I quickly readied myself and wrote Jeremiah a note. This part of town was safe. We lived on the beach. My dad was a tech billionaire. I say we loosely. This was our beach home. My parents only came to visit a couple of times a year. They purchased this home when I got accepted into Pepperdine. I was quickly out the door and down to the beach path. I wasn’t sure just how long I was going to run but it was likely going to be a long one since it was five in the morning.
I loved when I had all this extra energy. I was never quite sure where I got it or how long it would last but I felt alive. It seemed electricity was buzzing right below the surface of my skin. Sometimes I couldn’t help but itch. I began my run with one step in front of the other. My pace quickened and my mind ran at the same pace. I hoped this hard pace would wear out my mind as well as my body. The harder I pushed the louder my thoughts grew. Last week I ran in to Sarah, she smiled but I am sure she hates me. I know that she is out to make Hannah leave me. Why does is Hannah still my friend. I always disappoint her. I left without her again, maybe that is that last step. She is going to leave me my only friends. Finals are next week. I don’t need to study. I am so smart. I am special. I am made for something great. I might be a demi-god. The fact that I don’t have to study and always pass, clearly means that I am smarter than humans and I must be something more. This is why Sarah is trying to tear Hans and I apart. She is jealous. She wishes she was a demi-god. The thoughts went on and on as I ran. Instead of getting more quiet, they grew louder, Why can’t I get my mind to shut up. I just want a little peace. I can’t wait to get back to Jeremiah. I was able to quiet my head with him.
