When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.........
I jolted awake.
Liam is sitting on the floor beside me, playing with his bear like always.
"Hey," he says. "You're up."
"Yea Buddy, how long you been awake?"
"Not to long, Just about 2 hours."
"You know," I say "You could've woken me up"
"I know but you looked so peaceful." he said with a pout.
"You so selfless, did ya now that?"
"You only tell me every day."
"Hey umm, Liam." I say standing up of the floor. He looks up at me.
"We need to leave today, find somewhere new."
"What! Why? We can't, it's too soon, we've only been here two weeks!" he yelled.
"Liam you have to be quite! Look, I don't wan't to leave either, but we have to. Yesterday I heard people talking about some other locals saying there were rogues around. It's not safe here anymore."
He stood up from the floor and walked over to his bag and put his blanket and bear inside it. "When are we leaving."
"Soon," I say "I want to get there before dark, who knows what kind of people will be out after sunset."
"Ok." He says looking down.
"Listen I know you're upset but it'll be fine."
"I know, I know. You say it almost every time we move."
"Guess I have a habit of repeating things."
He looks up with a sad smile."Where are we going?" he asks.
"I'm not sure, somewhere south."I grab my blanket off the floor and but it in my bag along with an empty water jug and a flashlight.
"Can we go get some water before we leave I'm thirsty."
"Of course, water jugs empty anyway."
I continue packing my things.
"Do you think in the next place we'll be able to stay longer?"
"I don't know Liam."
I finished putting everything in the bag. We haven't been able to stay in a place lately for more than a month. Usually we'd be able to stay in one place for at least two months, stay up to five if were lucky. We're always so careful. We stay up in trees a little ways into the woods so it's not too close to the town. But not the past few months. And I don't know if it's just a coincidence or not but I hate running around like this.
"Are you ready to leave?" I ask Liam.
"Yeah, I think so."
"Ok, I'll climb down first. Make sure no one's around."
I climb down the tree.
