The Right Decision
by Pernille Novotni Lidell
The wind is blowing in my hair as I look at the sun setting. I know that it is now or never. My stuff is packed in boxes and I have the most important things in my backpack.
I drive up the road and stop at the red light. I look over my shoulder. Is this going to be the last time I will ever see my hometown? I feel the tears in my eyes. Could it be the wind?
The light turns green, but I am frozen on the spot. Have I made the right decision? Am I out of my mind? I hear horns honk behind me and I start driving again.
I stop at Starbucks for a cup of coffee and a final thought. As I pay for the coffee his picture falls out of my wallet. He smiles at me and I can’t help smiling back. At this moment there is no doubt in my heart. I am leaving home to be with him no matter what it takes.
I drive into the sunset filled with excitement knowing that I might be out of my mind, but at the same time knowing that I am true to my heart.
