Okay, so this is the first chapter of a story I am writing about a girl named
Tabby. It doesn't have a name yet but once I get at least three chapters posted I
would love suggestions!!

        “Goodbye, Room.”

	I leaned against the wooden frame of my doorway, and rested my head on my arm.  My
bedroom was naked.  Completely clean, for the first time in months, no clutter,
furniture bare.  It looked like a room no one lived in.  And soon that was what it
would be. 

	Moshi’s soft little cat nose pushed against my ankle.  I picked her up and cuddled
her under my chin.  Fat tears rolled down my cheeks and landed in her fur. 
	“Moshi…” I whispered to her. “I can’t take you with me.  I’m going to
miss you so much.”   I hugged her too tightly, and she began to squirm in my arms. 
 I released her and she slid to the floor.

“Tabby!” Rachael’s voice called up the stairs.  “Are you ready to go?”

“No!” I yelled back.  I continued to stare around my room.  I tugged at my lip

“Well hurry the hell… Hello Kitty up!” she shouted.

Josh had taken up swearing since Mom died, and Rachael had decided she would be a
‘good influence’ by quitting herself.  The result was a vocabulary of lame but
creative curses. 

“Hello Kitty’s the problem!” I yelled.
Footsteps echoed up the staircase.
Rachael poked her head in the door.
“What?” she looked at me like I had lost my mind.

I pointed at my Hello Kitty suitcase from fifth grade.
“I am not packing my stuff in that.”

Rachael rolled her eyes way back and sighed.  
“Hold on, let me see what else I can find for you.”

I sat on my bed and waited for her.  Once I was alone, heavy feelings sank into my
stomach again.

Which was what I expected.  The feelings were always there, waiting.  Ever since…

No, no, no, don’t think about that, don’t think, don’t think, don’t

“Here, how’s this?”  Rachael’s voice broke through the dark cloud of thoughts
that was thickening around my head.  She tossed a plain black duffel bag at me.

“Oh.  Thanks.  That’s…better,” I said, shoving my purple A Skylit Drive
hoodie inside it.  Rachael nodded and left me to pack.  


	At the airport, Rachael and Josh stood outside with me in an awkward farewell.  The
cold air turned Josh’s pale face rosy and ruffled his dark hair.  I gave my little
brother a hug and whispered, ‘take care of Moshi for me’ in his ear.  He didn’t
hug back. 

He didn’t say anything, just stared down at my black sneakers.  Tears rolled down
his cheeks.  I sighed.  Josh still wouldn’t talk to me.  He hadn’t talked to me

I gave Rachael a hug next.  I couldn’t remember the last time I had hugged her.  I
could feel her insides moving as she breathed.  It reminded me of Mom’s hugs.  I
almost cried. 

Rachael looked me in the eyes.  I forced myself to hold her gaze.  It was hard.  Her
eyes were Mom’s eyes…

Stop. Not now. Don’t think about that. You’ll start crying if you think about

“Tabby.” Rachael said.  I snapped back to the moment. 

“Yes?” My voice sounded small against the howling wind.

“Tabby…” Rachael sighed deeply.  “Please try to make this work.  Please?”

I looked down at the concrete.  
“Yeah.  Of coarse.”

“Promise me.”

“Yeah, sure, I… I promise.”

Tears fell from my eyes. 
I meant it.


After Rachael and Josh were gone and I was on the plane, the reality of it all
finally started to sink in.

I was leaving.
I was going to a new place with new people.  And it might be a huge mistake.  

Although Rachael kept my computer usage extremely limited, I had taken a moment to
sneak a few peaks at the website for this place.  And the impression I had got from
the website was not a good one. 

It was called Arrowette Achademy.  And as far as I could tell, it was a school for
emotionally disturbed teenagers.  

	Not that that in itself was all that bad; maybe being around other freaks would be
good for me.  Maybe.

Or, maybe they’d kill me.

Either way, I knew one thing for sure; death would have been so much easier than

Very good. You need a semicolon between the two that's at the end.
‹✖[[AntisocialButterfly]]✖› says:   11 January 2011   742323

Like that? :/ 
‹✬Kaybell❣› says:   11 January 2011   229385  
Wait, do you mean to have two that's?
If not, erase one of them, if so clarify what you mean by Not that. 
‹✖[[AntisocialButterfly]]✖› says:   11 January 2011   507222  
Yes I meant to have two thats. It makes sense. 
‹✖[[AntisocialButterfly]]✖› says:   11 January 2011   727010  
"Not that in itself was..."
makes so sense.

If you are talking about the school shouldn't it be "Not that it in
itself..." ?

"Not that that in itself was all that bad."
"Not that (the fact that it was a school for emotionally disturbed
teenagers)in itself was all that bad."
