"Victoria, why don't we go ahead and head up to the cabin." Rachel suggested. "Uncle David will drive us."
Torie tensed and pulled away, noticing her uncle. Her eyes locked onto his. "No. I am not going anywhere with him." She replied, her voice cracking since she hadn't used it too much.
"Victoria, be nice. Your uncle is just trying to help." Rachel said softly.
"No. He doesn't help anyone but himself. He is the reason I am here and the reason why I am not laying in a coffin right now. If I hadn't been put in here, then I would be the one dead, not them." She said, tearing up again.
Rachel hugged her daughter. "Sshh...everything will be ok." She replied, not sure what else to say.
"No..it won't. My friends are dead, Mom...because of me.." She said before starting to sob again.
"I'm not trying to but what else am I supposed to say?"
Being single doesn't make you weak, it means that you are strong enough to be on your own; Being alone could be a good thing, because there is no drama involved in your life, no pain, and free to do what ever you want. Life is too short to be chasing those who aren't even worth fighting for, you are worth more than that.
