Ten Years Later My older sister was always late in the mornings and every day I waited on the couch next to the door counting the hundreds of seconds until she was ready I waited dressed with my bright pink backpack secured my shoes tied and my coat zipped I watched her run around the house looking for a last minute snack or sometimes finishing her homework It puzzled me that no matter how early she woke up she was still always late Finally she would open the door and together we would sprint down the street to the bus stop where we would be the last two kids on the bus I resented her for making me sit in the front row and I was determined to convince my parents that I was old enough to go by myself They didnt give in for two years until I reached second grade For the first week my sister walked with me It wasnt intentional but by the time I reached the end of the driveway she caught up to me and we would walk side by side The following week when Lana abandoned her resolution to be on time I left my house alone As I turned the corner I confirmed her absence and began my walk in solitude It wasnt far not more than a quarter of a mile and there was plenty of time to spare Yet I walked briskly at first and then I began to run Afraid of looking behind me I dashed to the end of the street Sobbing I stood alone until the others gradually found their way to the bus stop I refused at first to admit that I didnt know what to do with my newfound liberty I wished that it would be taken away or rather that I had never been granted it That way at least I wouldnt be humiliated into confessing my fear
