It was hard for Jessica keep from screaming at the unfairness of it all.
Jessica felt as if her parents were betraying her for taking away everything she had built throughout the past few years. “How could they do this to me again?” she thought as she sat in the rear seat of the Honda Civic, hiding her tears of sorrow and pain. She, once again, had friendships that would now dwindle into oblivion. She would have to make new ones, a menial task that she was always over-anxious about. She worried that she would be remain in solitude if no one were to befriend her. Her heart sank deeper into her chest with every mile closer to their new ‘home.’ Having lived in 5 different cities and 3 different states at only sixteen years of age she was tired of moving and having to rebuild everything every few years.
“Can’t you just get a different job, dad? I mean…there are like thousands of them, right?” pleaded Jessica.
The car remained silent. Jessica turned her head and gazed out the window, despising everything she saw.
“That’s our house right there on the corner of that roundabout,” said her father.
“Oh, cool! We live next to a circle! I hope you know your job is a major pain, Major,” Jessica said mockingly, degrading her father’s rank.
