Tony williams sat on a rock nearby watching over his friends from a distance. He had instictively decided to go on this roadtrip with them because of their insistence. But looking back at how the days had passed, he was ever so glad that he made this decision.
There hadnt been much network for most of the trip since they were camping out at odd places most of the time. But that seemed to have done him a whole lot of good. Network problems meant less time with technology and that meant more time for himself. Reflection.
Tony had many friends throughout his teenage years. Some who had taken him way off track and made him into a horrible person. A person almost like sam. He cringed at the thought.
If there was anything he didnt want in his life, it was to be like sam. He wanted to be different. Better in every way. And now, watching his friends splashing so carefree in the dirty dam water full of reeds, he was ever so grateful that he had met them all.
These new friends had brought him back to the real world. They made him realise that there was so much more to life than what actually meets the eye. That we need to let go of the past if we want any kind of future for ourselves.
That there was actually a life worth living that didnt involve drugs and alcohol and clubbing. Yes they had fun too, but in different ways. They were spontaneous and did everything at the spur of the moment yet they were all sensible at the same time.
Whats got you so deep in thought and far away from having fun?
His friend ryan asked from behind him before joining him on a rock just above.
Reflection bru.. thats what!
Well then good. Reflection is always good.
They sat in a comfortable silence for a while before tony began talking again.
I really want to make things right. Change things for my sisters and i. Im supposed to be the older brother. The responsible one. Yet ive failed them so many times. I cant remember the last time i spent quality time with sabreen or even the last time alice and i could be around eachother for more than 24 hours without killing eachothe
Ryan put his hand sharply on tonys neck which caught him by surprise.
What the hell dude?
Ryan stood up and laughed..
well you still have a pulse guy.. you still have time to fix things.
And then he walked away.
