It had taken me a long while to finally finish my food, I hated McDonalds but what else was there when your in the middle of nowhere, with only one fast food place and a gas station yeah pretty hard. <p> My parents were busy talking to some guy getting tips on the best ways to get to Alaska, "Meh," i mumbled tapping on the window indicating they needed to shut up before i went insane. <p> "Mom! Dad shut up!" <br> Clarity hold on! They yelled <p> I gave them the finger rubbing my face, looking at the rip in my jeans picking at it. I hate this but you need to do what can, nobody ever said it was going to be easy. My dad slid into the drivers seat and pulled out heading down the busy highway. I blasted my earbuds not wanting to listen to them. I finally fell asleep, not caring where we were. <p> Several hours later my mom was nudging me awake. We were at a Hotel. I blinked and stumbled inside still very tired i ended up asleep on the lobby floor. <p> Continud tomrrow
