Even though I totally appreciate what she did, I am a sucker for happy and well wrapped up.
I looked at Lochan and could hardly believe we'd made it. The day when Kit busted in on us naked and ran to get mom, I thought that we'd never be able to keep everything together. It turns out he was just embarrassed because Lochan had interfered and his coach outed his fear of heights to the team. I don't know what he thought he'd accomplish by getting mom but after an hour of yelling, she passed out. She left the next morning and never came back.
We got checks once a month until we graduated, and Lochan got a scholarship to the local university. He wrote on the side for the newspaper and made enough to support us. It's been a long fifteen years, but Willa is in college now, and they've all come to accept our relationship, and why we left town.
I looked into Lochan's eyes and still felt the same passion, longing and I was glad that we'd started over, and our new friends all thought we were the sweetest couple. I could do something about my love.
