For the first time in awhile I was actually looking forward to seeing my parents, since IÐ²Ð‚â„¢d spent a year in complete isolation from all humans. I knew that I couldnÐ²Ð‚â„¢t tell them what happened and I would need to make a phoney excuse about Fred and me. We figured that we could just say that Barry ran away into the woods and we couldnÐ²Ð‚â„¢t find him. But then thereÐ²Ð‚â„¢s meÐ²Ð‚Â¦ IÐ²Ð‚â„¢m taller, stronger and I have longer and darker hair. How could we possibly say that this was just an Ð²Ð‚Ñšabnormal growing streak?Ð²Ð‚Ñœ itÐ²Ð‚â„¢s impossible, they would stat asking question and if they were really concerned, maybe some sort of blood test that would tell them how old I really was.
Mom and dad are supposed to arrive here in seven hours and thirty five minutes and we have yet to find an excuse for the vast change in my appearance. Lucy wasnÐ²Ð‚â„¢t any help at all; she just stood there amazed that I really did end up staying in a single room for one whole year just to get back at my brother.
An hour went by and Barry saw a very familiar car pull into the driveway. I didnÐ²Ð‚â„¢t remember it at first because itÐ²Ð‚â„¢s been a year since a saw any cars, other than the police car. After a while of me thinking who was in the driverÐ²Ð‚â„¢s seat. I finally remembered; it was Mr. Crane, the lawyer.
Ð²Ð‚ÑšBarry! SomebodyÐ²Ð‚â„¢s here!Ð²Ð‚Ñœ I yelled to Barry.
Ð²Ð‚ÑšHe canÐ²Ð‚â„¢t see youÐ²Ð‚Ñœ he said franticly while he pushed me out the back door.
I ran into the woods. A year ago singularity time, it would have taken me forever to run into the trees. But since I spent a year on working out, it was a piece of cake.
Ð²Ð‚ÑšHello there Barry, whereÐ²Ð‚â„¢s your brother?Ð²Ð‚Ñœ he asked
Ð²Ð‚ÑšHe went out for a walkÐ²Ð‚Ñœ I said quickly, starting to break into a small sweat.
There wasnÐ²Ð‚â„¢t much he could say at the moment and I can give him some credit for that. Barry and I knew we couldnÐ²Ð‚â„¢t keep my age a secret. But I would rather that Mr. Crane would stay out of this whole situation. I would love it if Mom and Dad wouldnÐ²Ð‚â„¢t notice that I had changed, but I went over this before and it would never happen.
Once my crane left, I ended up writing one last journal entry before we left for home.
It felt exceptionally good today when I picked up this journal and noticed that there wasnÐ²Ð‚â„¢t and seconds or mili-seconds to write. The seconds were pouring down so incredible fast compared to how they were 9 months ago, or 5 months ago, or even this morning. I also had as much room as I wanted. I could write two sentences, or I could write a book. It didnÐ²Ð‚â„¢t matter anymore. I was free from my own life. It actually felt like I start fresh. I was stronger. I might be more confident and able to do way more. But then again, I havenÐ²Ð‚â„¢t got any smarter or done anything that a seventeen year old would do. Even thought this was all wonderful, I still felt sorry for Barry. Someone that seemed like a younger brother, two and a half hours went by while he was sleeping, and already his brother aged a year. It wasnÐ²Ð‚â„¢t fair to him.
Ð²Ð‚ÑšTwenty-two minutes!Ð²Ð‚Ñœ Barry yelled out to me from the kitchen.
Barry had been counting down the minutes for the past hour until Mom and DadÐ²Ð‚â„¢s arrival. I figured that this arrival has the same amount of suspense as the arrival of The Approaching OneÐ²Ð‚â„¢s arrival. They both need to come and thereÐ²Ð‚â„¢s nothing we can do to stop it and both arrivals are incredibly terrifying yet we want to see them eventually.
I started to think what would happen if the singularity was still here. Would Barry go into it just for me? To help us look similar so mom and dad would only think that we grew taller? They wouldnÐ²Ð‚â„¢t really notice our differences.
Ð²Ð‚ÑšBeep-BeepÐ²Ð‚Ñœ a sound came from out side
Ð²Ð‚ÑšHarry! Big problem! There here early!Ð²Ð‚Ñœ Barry yelled almost in tears.
We were both petrified. We didnÐ²Ð‚â„¢t have an excuse, we didnÐ²Ð‚â„¢t have anything. We would have to talk thought it, or our last resort would be to tell them the truth. But it wouldnÐ²Ð‚â„¢t work. A room where time goes faster that mysteriously blew up right after a giant metallic worm came out of it. Who would believe that?
They come out of the door, and asked Barry who his friend was. We both stayed away from any eye contact and didnÐ²Ð‚â„¢t say a word. Mom got frantic and asked us were Harry was in a voice like she was about to cry.
Ð²Ð‚ÑšMom, itÐ²Ð‚â„¢s me, HarryÐ²Ð‚Ñœ I said as my voice shivered
Ð²Ð‚ÑšExcuse me?Ð²Ð‚Ñœ she said with disbelief.
Ð²Ð‚ÑšItÐ²Ð‚â„¢s me!Ð²Ð‚Ñœ I repeated my self.
She started to cry. It was weird; she didnÐ²Ð‚â„¢t seem frightened at all. She had the same look that one would get when one was in complete disbelief and mystified put onto one face. It was weird to see Dad getting out of the car. He knew it was me. And he knew why. Suddenly he yelled at me and asked how we found a key. He said that he took the only copy of the key. He knew more.
We went inside the house and explained to Mom and Dad what happened to me and everything that happened during HarryÐ²Ð‚â„¢s stay and my year in this lot. Dad explained how he knew about it. It turns out that Dad and Uncle Ambrose have known each other for quite some time. He didnÐ²Ð‚â„¢t know that it was MomÐ²Ð‚â„¢s Uncle until he died. They both thought they got rid of the key to the lock. But it turns out that they didnÐ²Ð‚â„¢t. They got mad at me for doing something so incredibly selfish and outrageous. Because Dad knew all about the Singularity, we had someone to help explain it all. She got over the fact of me being a year older quite quickly. We wouldnÐ²Ð‚â„¢t have been able to do it with out him.
We went home and I just played it cool with all my friends. Every one that I knew was confused. I ended up being a completely different person at school. No friends but Barry accepted me and introduced me too all of his friends. I loved that.
My life turned around that day. Mom and dad accepted me for who I turned out to be. Barry grew a lot the following summer, and now guess what, heÐ²Ð‚â„¢s bigger. HeÐ²Ð‚â„¢s bossing me around, but as much as he yells at me, I still know he cares.
