When I want to be alone, I go into Daddy’s study. Jessica is still too scared to come in here, so I can have more privacy than even my own bedroom. That makes it a good place for when I want to do homework or be alone with my thoughts.
I’m doing the former right now. Despite the Goth makeover, I still put some effort into my homework. I’m not going to be valedictorian like Stacey Chang, but I at least want to graduate on time. The sooner I graduate, the sooner I can be out of here. Then I can leave this whole crappy city behind. If I can get the money, maybe I can go to college in LA or San Francisco or Seattle. Honolulu would be good too. Oxford would be even better, but there’s no way I can afford that....
