WW 195

When we got back to Hylewood, the first thing we did was go to the motel for hot showers and clean clothes. Then it was on to Grandma’s house we went. The look on her face when she opened the door and saw my dad was one of pure happiness. “Hi Mom.” He said with a sheepish grin. “Oh Elliott! I never once gave up hope on seeing you again!” She said with the biggest smile I’d ever seen. Then she pulled him into a tight embrace while tears streamed down her face. After she regained her composure, she made us all sit down in the living room while she made a pot of tea. Then she gave us a little while to relax and get warm by the fire before the interrogation began. Between the three of us; Mom, Dad, and me…we told our tale. After we were finished, Owen sat there stunned, with a look of disbelief on his face. I knew it sounded crazy to him but there was no denying that something supernatural had occurred out there. How else could he explain my parents being alive. But grandma…I think she always believed in the unknown. And it’d been one hell of an adventure. Later that day, the rest of our family showed up. There was a lot of confusion, hugging, laughter, and even some tears. But most of all there was joy. For the first time in a very long time…longer than I could remember…our family felt complete.
