THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 275

After the Test

In the chaos
of being loaded
back onto the buses,
I watched Lindsey
try to disappear.
She looked to her right
and to her left,
backing away
from hidden danger.
But Maddy and Amanda
rushed up and grabbed her
in a hug
that I was not sure was real.
Lindsey slumped into them
like a rag doll,
all her nervous energy
gone.
Then Gary grabbed me
in a hug
(which was very real)
and said,
“Come on. Let’s see
if we can get in the same
seat on the bus.”
We held hands
so we wouldn’t
get separated.
