-You'll soon see the world as it should be.
That's the most I could get from my visit with Adam today. He's home from the hospital and his mom thought it would do him good to see some familiar faces.
I called Sara and Danger to see if they wanted to come with, but Danger was at the orthodontist, and Sara made some cheap excuse saying she would go see him on the weekend.
She's still been tough to read lately. In fact when she found out that Adam was back she kept trying to change the subject. I mean...that's what everyone is talking about. How can you not be curious? She seemed very uncomfortable talking about it, so I didn't push the issue.
When I got to Adam's house his mom warned me that he wasn't making much sense since he recovered from the paralysis. The Dr. said it could take some time - and more tests - to find out exactly what happened, but that he expected a full recovery.
She warned me not to bring up Cassidy's death. Why does everyone keep avoiding reality? We all need to embrace our fear...use it. That's what gets me through.
I did as she asked, so we talked about nothing really.
When I left, Adam's mom wanted to know what he had said.
-Did he mention anything about where he had been?
-No...he did say over and over how much fun you guys had last summer at the amusement park, especially the roller coaster.
The silence was awkward, and her look puzzled.
-We went to the Grand Canyon last summer.
