Today I barely managed to get out of the tent. The dark circles under my eyes were even more darkened, and I had no appetite to eat, or the strength to even speak or stand up straight. Moments after sleeping the night before tortured me with nightmares, to the point I was unable to sleep, despite how exhausted I was. This wasnt new, but whenever this happened it was easy to cover it up; not today, I was an obvious wreck. It didn't seem like he would pay mind, though, since it looked like he was reciprocating the hate I forced myself to feel towards him.

The food didn't look appealing at all at the moment. In any other time- like yesterday- I wouldve eaten it without much hesitation, but now I just kind of stared at the food, trying to wrap my fuzzy mind around the fact that I needed to eat. I simply picked at some of her food, eating slowly.

"....." an hour and a half later, i came back, my eyes dried and looked at her tiredly, wanting this to be done as i dried my hair, and looked back to ehr again, wondering slightly what was up, but stopped myself, remembering my commitment to keep distance from her like she wanted

"...He was drinking a lot last night," I said suddenly, looking very tired and disoriented. "And then...I sensed nothing, all of a sudden. You cant...stop being drunk so abruptly unless..." My voice started to waiver slightly, dread mixed with exhaustion and worry taking their toll more noticibly on me.

"Not much hungry..." I muttered, disinterested in the food.

"eat that much at least, and then ill finish what you dont eat while we walk...." i said, pointing to a portion already set aside on the plate "you will need it for the energy, the snow got really high while we slept, so we will have to fight through it"

"..... longer you refuse to eat, the longer we stay here and away from your father who is probobly worried Sick about you..." i said simply, hating the fact that i had to play the badguy for this in order to make sure she was well enough to survive the trip

"..." I made an irritated sound, stabbing at the food and eating it, looking like a very much annoyed child.

"..." I nodded, agreeing with him, still reluctantly eating the food.

"....." i sighed quietly and walked out into the storm, doing my best to ignore the growing resentment and bitterness i had at the world at the moment, and looked down at my compass and began navigating toward the direction where her house would be located, so we didnt half to walk as long on streets and sidewalks....

Nearing where I lived, I noticed firefighters and officers taping off my block. I dropped the rope, running ahead to the nearest officer.

"Whoa, young lady, it was advised to-"

"What happened?" I demanded, cutting him short.

"Well, missy, the houses in these area were not inspected for structural safety; many roofs collapsed due to the weight. Moreover, the power went out. Many people were already frozen or entering the first stages of hypothermia- now now, young lady, dont cry..."

"I HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO CRY! THIS IS MY NEIGHBORHOOD! WH-WHERES MY DAD!?!?" My voice began to crack, as tears froze on my face.

"Missy, please calm down..."

I noticed that the kitchen had caved in, so I ran and started digging away snow and roof. "I shouldve left as soon as I warmed up as soon as I noticed he was drinking so much at least he would be safe and everything would be okay..." I rambled on and on, panicky, struggling with a piece of the roof.

"...." i walked over and with a grunt, shouldered the peice of wood out of the way, and saw a hand, and began hurriedly uncovering him from the wood, but carefully, sighing with a grin, seeing he was okay and that he was in a small cave of wood, and was only scratched up a bit, and called for more help

He was unconscious, but he seemed okay. At least not frozen to a human icicle. He and a few other neighbors were being taken a tent, unable to get ambulances due to the conditions. And I just stuck like a leech to my dads side until he started regaining consciousness.

I smiled happily as soon as he woke up.

"...Where the hell am I?"

"Youre in a tent dad. A big one. The house collapsed."

"...Huh. When did that happen?"

"You dont remember."

"......Where were you?"

"Stuck somewhere. Dad, were you so drunk you never noticed the house collapse?"

"Where were you stuck?"

"Dad. Dont change the subject."
