to leave the past and clear the mind
to watch the sunset set; it's time
I swear you'll find I'm your ride home
Adam drives, and Tessa reviews files next to him, switching on a small, clip-on flashlight.
Now close your eyes
it's getting dark, the highway's clear
No sign of life from front to rear
It's just you, my dear
On the ride home
We're going home.
Middle row is the girls - Lyric is fast asleep, and she's fallen against Julia; at first, Julia had pulled back, but now she's relaxed into in and is awkwardly stroking Lyric's hair.
Back row, the boys - Johnathan's behind Julia, and Napalm's behind Lyric, reaching around to hold her hand even in her sleep.
I'll be reaching for the stars with you, honey
Who cares if no one else believes...
Tessa watches them in the rearview mirror. She touches Adam's hand on the steering wheel; they exchange smiles.

ewin reports: There is a friend of mine, spineless_steel who has a cat that was recently injured. He needs surgery to the tune of $1500... she is short $500.
I am not one of those people who believe you should have to be well-off in order to deserve to own a cat. That kind of bullshit only keeps millions of cats homeless. Normally, all a cat needs is food and water (and spay or neuter) and a warm spot to sleep. Rarely, something like this happens.
It happened to me, with my cat Mikey. He got sick. I couldn't afford to take him to the vet. I waited too long, and then noticed his weight loss, and then took him and damn the fee... by the time I brought him, his liver was failing and he had to be put to sleep. I will feel guilty for the rest of my life for the fact that he died of something that may have been fixable, had I the money. That feeling SUCKS, people. I don't want anybody else to have to feel that way.
spineless_steel is a real person, a good person, someone who I know in real life, her cat is real, I can personally vouch for the whole thing.
