The Anderson’s

The Anderson's

Abby Schuler , Writer

  Once Stacy and Jacob got home from the award ceremony I quickly rushed out by saying my friend needed help with a project. Zander picked me up from the Anderson’s and took me home. I didn’t say a word in the car, he tried to talk to me once we stopped but all I could do was run into the house. I hurried up the stairs and into my room before my mom asked me how babysitting was. I face timed Izzy before realizing she was at the gym practicing for her upcoming meet.

I had to choose whether to talk to my parents or the Anderson’s about this, I showered , put on some sweats,  turned on some music and drew to get my mind off everything. If I talked to the Anderson’s then I could get honest answers or they could tell me I need to talk to my parents about this. Or I could talk to my parents and risk getting lied to or even told it’s not up for discussion. Drawing wasn’t helpling ,Zander kept calling so I just turned off my phone and went to bed. I woke up and went for my morning jog with Izzy and told her everything , she told me to do whatever’s right for me and that she’ll support and help anyways she can.

 I told her I will take her up on that since her dad’s a detective at the station. Later that day Zander and I went for a hike at the trails I ended up just telling him I got into a fight with Izzy and didn’t want to talk about it. After our hike I stopped at the Anderson’s and Lucy answered. I asked to get her mom for me.I sat with Stacy on the porch and told her that I knew everything and all I want is just an explanation. She called Jacob and asked him to come back from the course early and that there was an incident at home.
