Full Moon: Quil's Story

Chapter Thirteen

I’m home alone for the first time in my life. But instead of stay inside I head back out the door. I don’t even bother to lock up. Instead I start running again. I’m probably going to be able to do a mile without breaking a sweat by now.

I just keep jogging though. I only stop when I find the familiar path that leads to Jacob’s shed.

He’s just getting out and closing the door when he sees me.

“What’s going on?” He asks me.

I catch my breath as I walk up to him.

I shake my head.

“Nothing,” I say,”It’s just Grandpa’s at a tribal meeting. So, I headed back over here”

Jacob shakes his head.

“Yeah, Sue and Harry Clearwater came and got Dad awhile ago,” He tells me.

“I figured,” I say as he goes back to shutting the shed door,”My mom’s not coming back until late. She’s taking that exam today, remember?”

Jacob nods his head.

He pulls on the shed’s handle to make sure it’s shut tight. It’s creaky and worn. But it’s sturdy. Wild animals will get in if he doesn’t make sure it’s closed properly.

When Jake turns back to me, he sizes me up.

“What? You scared to be home by yourself or something?” He asks.

I shrug my shoulders.

“I just hate being alone,” I admit.

Jacob’s eyebrows twist inwards. He turns his head and begins walking towards his house. I follow him and match his stride. He doesn’t say anything, but I swear I hear him mutter:

“Yeah, me too”
