J.F.K. Airport was probably the last place Rose wanted to be. She didn’t really want to be back in Manhattan. She could have spent break somewhere else but really didn’t have the energy to keep up the façade for much longer. So, her plan was to hide away in the penthouse in Manhattan. Her parents owned an estate on Long Island and they were in Europe but that place never really felt like much of a home to her. She really didn’t want to be alone in the remote estate and if her parents did come home they would go there, Rose had no intention of dealing with them over break.
The blonde girl could have told someone that the depression seemed to be sliding its way back to her or that she would be alone but Rose had become a really good actress about such things, as, far as she knew nobody knew. Maybe, that she wanted to be alone and just lay in bed all day was a bad sign but , the young woman, chalked up to the season and that her brother wasn’t there. As much as she tried she also couldn’t stop herself about thinking of the upcoming anniversary of the accident.
A mess, that’s what she was, right? Maybe her parents were right and maybe she wasn’t really worth the time. The key to the penthouse played in her hand; the penthouse had been where she and William had spent most of their breaks there. It had been given to her brother and it was now hers; it almost didn’t feel right going there without him.
The girl hadn’t called her family’s car service and really thought about telling a cab driver to take her, just anywhere. Her mind was getting rather cluttered with a number of thoughts she shouldn’t have had and the next thing Rose knew she was sitting on a bench watching a family, then another reunite. Running into each other’s arms; it was as if she was punishing herself for some unknown discretion. There was no telling how long the girl sat there, really uncertain of what to do with herself, her eyes beginning to water with tears she had no idea had been so close to the surface. Running her hand though her hair wondering if maybe she just buy the next ticket out to some place that no one could find her.
