“No i will be right there. Just give me a few minutes and i will be right there. ” he said. “Thank you so much..”kristin said. “Look we will get though this together ok?” he remarked. “Ok” she said. 

He got his sister to drive with him.he went to the doctors office.  She waited for him. He ran to her. She grabed on to him. He held her for a few minutes. She started to cry. 

“I know it does not feel it but it will be ok. ” he said. “I know it will. It just does not feel that way right now. I just feel lost. things were finaly starting to look up.” she said. 

he drove her home. “Look can we hanng out or something. I need a distraction?” she asked.  “Yea i need to drive marissa home. ” he said. “I will tell my mom.” she said.

She went to her mom. “Jack and i are going to go out for a bit.i need to get away and clear my head. ” Kristin said. “Are you ok kris?” diane asked. “No but i am  ok enough. ” she told him. ” she said.

Diane hugged her. “I worry about you kriss. ” her mom told her. “I know you do. I am hurt and heartbroken. .i know i can get though it. ” she said. “Ok. Have a good job with jack.”she said.”thanks. ” she said.kristin hugged her mom.

Kristin, jack and marissa went to there house in jack’s car. They droppes marisa off. “Where do you go when your sad and want to cheer up? “She asked.

“I know just the place!” he said in a glee full tone. “I am a little concerned. Should i be? “Kristin asked. “Mayby a little. ” he said.

They pulled up to a burger soveregn. ” burger sovereng really?” she said. “This is how i destresify. They have amazing shakes” he told her. “I could like a milk shake. You know my mom baned us from going to fast food.” she said. 

“Oh no! Will taking you hear put me in the dog house with your mom?” he asked.  “It might. Why not. I always like to do things i have never done before. They make good milk shakes?” she asked. “They are great. I promise. ” he said. 

He parked.  They got out. They held hands. “Can you get me the bigest milk shake they have.i might let you have some. ” she said. 

“Ok. ” he said. “I feel weird being hear. Its is like being in a bar. ” she said. “Your comparing burger sovereign to a bar? ” he asked.  ” it was the most apt comparison i could think off. ” kristin said.

He ordered a burger and fries. She just wanted a milk shake and got some chicken nugets. They sat down at the table. 

“Thank you for this! “Kristin said. “No problem.  ” he said.”wow. This is great! ” she said. “I told you!” he said. She laughed. 

“I could not wait to drive. The minute i turned 16, i begged my dad to teach me to drive.  He was so patcient with me. I was so excited when i got my license.  When i woke up from the coma it took me a while to get it back.my mom was skidish about me driving but i loved just driving. That was when i discovered the spot. I felt so free. I could forget about everything that was going on. Now i gues i wont be able to. ” she said. 

“Well i enjoy driving.  Give me a call and we can take a drive. I know that it wont be the same but i am sure it can help. ” he said. “It wont be the same but it will be fine. ” she said.

“Was your mom ok with you going with me?” he asked. “Yes she was. She wants me to come to her with stuff. I know she cares about her. She worriers about me. I want to be sad. I want to deal with it. I want you to be with you. Your good madicine jack. “She said.

“I am glad.  I dont always have the answers. Sometimes all i can do is listen, give you a big hug and be there. ” he said. “I am ok with that. I dont need you to solve my problems. I just need to know you care. I know you do. I dont doubt that.  ” she said. 

“Are you ok krissy?” he asked. “No but yes. I know it will get easier in time. I know it is not the end of time. It is hard but i will be alright. ” she said.

“How is your shake?” he asked. “Amazing. I cant believe i have never had it before. I cant believe what i have been missing. ” she said. 

After a while they decided to leave. They walked out hand in hand. “Thank you for tonight.  Just having you hear makes it easier. I feel like i am stuck.  I just cant get pass that night.  I can never fully move on. I get so close but then i am pulled back in.” she said 

He hugged her. She cried on his shoulders.  He squezed her tightly. She held on to him. “Its ok. I got you! I am not going to leave you krissy! I love you. ” he said.

“I love you jack! You always going to be there for me? ” she asked. “As long as i have breath, definently. ” he said. She smiled. 

“I am not letting you get away. Not without a fight. ” she said. “I have no intention of leaving. That day is not going to define you. It has a lasting legacy for sure. It is not your end. It bateted you but it not destroy you. Your are blodied but stronger. ” he said. She held on him for a bit.

They got in the car. They went to there spot in the woods. They stood for a bit. ” i love this spot! We are going to show our kids this spot?” she remarked. “Absolutely.  ” he said.

“I hope they love it like we do. ” she said. “I think they will. ” he said. ” i needed to just cry things out. ” she said. “Thats fine. You dont have to be strong in front of me.  Be yoursf. Cry if you need to. Im hear for you always. ” he said.

“I dont doubt that. ” she said. He held on to her. They drove back to her house. “I had a good night despite the day. You do good cheering me up. ” she told her. “I am glad . i want to do for you. ” he said. 

“I know you will. You did really good tonight.Thank you. ” she said. He hugged her. He escorted her to the door.

Panic attack part 16

Previously on picnic attack.

Jack and kristin breiefly broke up.after some time apart,they decided to get back together.  

Despite there previus dificulties,things had started to go well for them. They were starting to figure out how to relate to each other. Things were shaping up for them.

They began to really get to know each orther. They started to move beyound the superficial. At the same time they began to unite spritually.  They did devotions together. They prayed together. They became very close. 

She started to trust him more and more. She started to confide in her more and more. She opened up. She let go of her fears. She allowed herself to be vanerable around him. She gave up a lot of her insicurity and bariers that kept him out. 

Everyone one noticed that they were verry Different from before.  They were very sweet together.  People at church liked watching them. 

 They had a lot of fans. Not everyone was quite as happy about it. Kristin’s mom strugled with it.  She loved all of her daughters.  She lost her husband but The lord spared kristin.  She hated watching her in a coma then strugling to relearn everything. She woried about her. She wanted to protect her. She did not meen to but sometimes took it too far.

It was not just because of all she went though. It was hard to see grow upm it was hard to see her go on her own.the closer she got to jack,  the more she feared she no longer needed her. She wanted kristin to turn to her. That was just not hapening as much any more.

She did not want to admit it but she was a bit releved when kristin ams jack broke up. She knew some day ,she would go off on her own. Mayby her mom would get more time time with kristin.  

Then they got back together. Now there bound was even stronger.  She began to see that this relationship might last longer then she expected. She was happy for her but it was still hard. 

Kristin was growing up. She waa getting ready to go out on her own. It was how it was to be. She was changing.  

Ktistin’s cell phone rang. She answered the phone. “Hi. ” she said. “Hello krissy.Tomorrow marks our one mounth anniversary.  ” he said. “Are you one of those who wants to commemorate every milestone including the first time one of us sneezed in front of the orther?” kristin asked.

“Well Mayby not every milestone!  This is a big one. I was wondering if you wanted to go out to eat with me. It ocured to me our dates were usually at one of our houses but we have never gone out. I thought we could go out to celebrate just you and me. ” he suggested. 

“It is a date date?” she commented. “There is no reason we did not do it erlier. I just did not think of it. ” he said.

“I love it. I love that idea. ” she said.  “How about thirsday night?” he suggested.  “Thats a great idea. I can go for that. ” she responded. “Awsome.can i pick you up at 4:00?” he asked.  “Sounds really good.” she said. 

“I cant wait to see you. I am realy excited for this!” she said. “I am too. I think this will be good. ” he said. “I think so too.” she said. 

“So your going out today?” her mom asked. “Yes. We are going to celebrate our mounth anniversary.  “She said.

“Do you think mayby you two are spending too much time together?  “Her mom asked.  “I had not really thought about that. It is. Spceical occasion.  “Kristin said.

“You two might be moving too fast. This is your first relationship sense the accident. I just think you two should slow down a bit. ” her mom said.

“We dont spend that much together.  We both keep prety buisy. We enjoy each others compony. ” kristin said 

“I know. I am just concerned that you are setting yourself up for a fall. I am not sure he totaly understands what he is getting into. I am not sure you understand all that goes on with you.” she said.

“I know that. I am sure i do not totaly understand all that goes on. I really like him. Every day i realize just how much. I understand what yoir saying.i know we both have to be careful.i think i am ready for a relationship. “She told him. 

“I just dont know kris. I thought you were. You may not be and thats ok. “She said. “Do you think i should not see him?” kristin asked. “No but you might want to pull back a bit. Take a step back. That is all i am saying.” her mom said. 

“Mom. I understand what you are syaing. I really do but when i am with him i feel like i am me again. Not tottaly. I dont know of i can ever be that person i was before the crash. I like being with him. I know he feels the same way. ” she said. 

“Just be carefull ok?” diane said.”i will mom. ” she said. Diane chuckled. “Ok!”she said. She gave her mom a hug. 

She spent quite a while getting ready. She put on a pink sweter and white and pink skirt. She braided her hair.  She was excited for this. She suspected he was well. 

He was always early. It was usualy a few minutes earley. She had learned that fairly early on in there relationship.  Sure enough there he was. 

She walked outside and walked down the stairs. She got into the pasinger seat. He smiled at her. He wore a polo shirt and tan pants. She smiled back.  “I got you flowers. “He said. “Those are beutifull thank you. ” she said. 

They went to a resturant. They were seated. ” you know i have never been on a date like this. “She said. “No i have not either. “Jack said. “Did you date at all in high school?”she asked.”no i was home schooled. I did not know manny girls my age. I imagine that i would have not been alowed to date but it never came up as an issue. “He said.

“I had a couple of boyfreinds but nothing too serious.  At the time i thought it was. “She said. He chuckled.

“Were you boy crazy in high school?” he asked in a playfull tone. “Perhaps a bitt. ” she admitted. ” i see. ” he said. “I am not anymore.  Except for one guy. ” she said. 

“That’s me right not lester cole?” he asked. “Yes silly. Thats you. ” she said.”good. I am just making sure.” he said. 

“So. When we got back together, you talked abour marriage as if it was a fata complee. Is that how you fell? Do you see us getting married lord wiling?” she asked.

“I do. I beleve the lord has brought us together.  Until we say i do, i gues i cannot be totaly sure. I am fairly confident yes. Do you feel the same way?” he asked. 

“I do. I very much do.i have fun with you. Its more then that.  I like being around you. I feel safe around you. ” she said.

“I am very glad to hear that. That is what i want.  I very much want you to feel safe. ” he said. ” i know that. I have never doubted that. ” she told him. 

After dinner they went for a drive.”look jack, i cant promise you that the way i am will change. I might always be this way. I might get worse. ” she said.

“I may not be prepared for that. I know i might not be. I am ready to commit to you no matter what. “He told her.

“I just wanted to make sure you did it. It is not going to be easy. ” she told her.”the importent things never are.i know that this may be harder then either of us can posibly understand. I beleve that you are worth it. I know you are. ” he said. 

She smiled.  “Ok. “She said. He smilled at her. He had a different smile just for her. She was sure he knew that but she knew he did. She loved it. 

They  went to het spot for a while. “Do you feel that we are moving too fast?” she asked. “I dont know. Do you feel we are?” he asked. “My mom is concerned that we might be.”she said.”i have never done this before. I dont have anything to base it on. My parents were part of a prayer group at college.  They ended up spending more time together. They hung out for a couple mounths before they got together officially.  ” he said.

“My dad was my mom’s tax guy. My mom asked her parents who to use for a tax perperer. They recomended my dad..two years later they were maried. ” she said. “Wow. My moms mom went to the misson field beleving she would be single all her life.  She actually told my grandfather she thought she would go unmaried. My grandfarther told her he was prety sure would be maried. He perposed a year later. ” he said.

“I gues there are no rulles.” she said. “Look krissy if you want some time to yourself thats fine. I would ask that we keep the lines of communication open. ” he told her. 

“Ok. I dont feel we need to take that step just yet. I never want to not have lines of cominication. I agree.  “She said.”i really do want to marry you. I hope the lord does permit that. ” he said.”i do too.” she said. 

They drove to there favorate spot then he brought her home. “I had a really good time tonight!” she told him. He smiled. “I did too. ” he said.

He hugged her. She held on to him for a minute. She kissed him on the forehead. They said there goodbyes.she went inside. 

She realized that day how much she carred about him.she was starting to realize just how much she did care about him.

Things go well for kristin and jack. Then kristin is put  stronger medication. That provides some complications. 

Wedding party part 12

Amber was heading back to the west coast.  Things were verry dufferent now then when she came. She hated to leave. She would miss matt. She hopped that the summer would go fast. 

She slept fairly soundly. She was fairly tired. She fell asleep and slept though the night until her alarm went off. 

Matt went to bed early.  He slept though the night.  He did not want to see her go but he knew the sooner she left, the sooner she would return. At least that was the hope. 

His alarm went off. He got up and showered. He wore a blue collered shirt and jeens. He did not wear jeens often but did on ocasion. He wore jeens when he had worked at a conatruction compony. He was a bit preppy. He did always try to look presentable.  

He headed out. He drove to his mom’s house. He parked the car and got out of the car.he headed to the door.

Amber got up with her alarm. She showered and got dressed. Mat’s mom had gotten the cofee ready the night before.  All she had to do was turn it on. She did that. She had a cup while she waited for matt to arive.

She had brought her suit case downstairs. She had packed fairly light. She relaxed for a few minutes and tried to wake up. She got a text from matt saying he was on his way. She text him back saying that she would be hear. 

She wore a blue blouse and denim skirt and sandles. She waited for matt. He came in. They tried to be qiet so as not to wake any one up. “Hi hunnie!” he said. “Hi babe. There is plenty of cofee left in the pot.i packed us cerial bars. Your mom wanted to make breakfast for us but i told her that would stress you out.”amber said.”yes it would.  Thank you. “He said.

“You and time constraints. “She said.”if i have a task,time stops until it is complete. “He said. “Yes i know all about that.”amber said.  They laughed qietly.

They drank cofee and sat down for a few minutes.”are you awake? “He asked.”i am getting there. I would like to fall asleep on the plane. I never sleep on planes.”she told him.”i am hoping to go back to bed when i get home. I dont know if that is actualy going to happen. “He said.

“I apreciate you driving me back.” she said.”my pleasure.  It gives us more time together. “He said. She smiled. She loved his smile. He had a special smile he only gave when he was around her. 

“Your not sick of me?”she asked. “Not at all.” he told her. “Good. Just making sure. “She said in response. “Promise me you will call when after you land.”he said.”i will. You have my word.”she said. “Good.”he said. 

After a while they decided to get ready to head out. She used the bathroom while he loaded the car. Then she left the bathroom,he used the bathroom.  Then they headed out.

He took her hand.  They held hands as they went to the car. They got inside. He held her hand as he drove. The car pulled out of the driveway and headed to the airport. 

He prayed for the jouney. Then they went. “So. When did you think that you might like me as more then a friend?” she asked.

“A few days after dad died. When i coukd not keep it any more. I broke down in front of you. You told me to stop holding it in. I realized i could be myself around you. I knew you did not need me to be strong all the time. That was the first time i consideres a nore serious relationship. I was not ready to act on it yet. “He said.

“I remember that. I noticed things changed between us. I suspected. “Shr said. “When was it for you?” he asked.”once you stoped thinking i was tring to turn your sister penticostal,you started to open up to me. You might not have realized it. I had a crush on you. I was afraid to act on it. ” she said .

“No i did not know.  I gues i can be kind of obvious. I want to do right by you. I know in many  ways, we are verry different. It will require some adjustment.  I realy beleve God has brought us together “he said.

“I am so glad to hear you say that. I beleve that too. It will require a lot of adjustment for both of us. ” she said. 

He let her put on k love. She was glad of that. She knew music would be obe of many isues they would have to work on. 

“I will try not to be qirky. ” he said.she chuckled. “I will try but i dont know how far i wil suceed. Like i said i am looking forward to being a pastor’s wife .” she said. “I know you will be a great one.” he told her. 

“I know i am going to have relly on the help of the holly sprit. I want to be. I want to be the best help meet i can for you.” she said. “I have not doubt you will suceed. He that begun a good work in you is able to perfrom it until the day of Christ. ” he said. “I know he will do the same for you. “She said. 

“I am sure we will encorge eachother in our walk with the lord. “He said.”i am sure of that. ” she said. “We can serve the lord together.  I have always wanted to do ministry with my wife. “He said.

” you have a tendency to hold things in. You try to deal witg things on your own. No more ok.i know it wont come easy for you but you have to share things with me. Ok?”she asked.

“Ok i will. “He said. She chuckled.” i am not everyone else.  I am a part of you. I have your rib!” she exclaimed. He laughed. “Ok. Rib thief!” he said. She laughed. 

“I would like to be able to tell you that is the last thing i will steal from you but it might be. That blue swet shirt of yours is really nice.  ” she said. 

“Do i need to check your bag to see if you have anything of mine?” he asked.”no i did not take any thing of yours this time. ” she said.

“I am prety sure stealing is wrong in the penticostal church as well. “He said. “One day we will be one flesh. It will be ok. ” he said. “You are coveting though. ” he said. “Ok. You might have a point there.  ” she said. He laughed.”i now understand none of my sweatshirts are safe. ” he declared. “No they are not! ” she said.he roled his eyes and turned his head.  She laughed. 

He found he never laughed as hard as when he was around her. She brought out his sillyness. He tended to be reserve, serious.  Around her he could let his hear down. She loved getting him to open up. 

They were both a bit sad when the car neared the air port. They both got a bit sad when the car neared the parking area. He parked the car.they got out and he got her luggage.  They walked hand in hand to the terminal.

“This is where we are suposed to part ways for now!” she told him. He hugged her. “I promised myself if i would not break down. ” she said. “I made the same pledge. Oh well!”he said.

She held on to him tightly. He held tightly as well. They both started to cry. “I am going to miss you. ” he said.”i am going to miss you. We will get though this. ” she said. “I know that. I love you amber. ” he said “i loved you” she said.

It was a lonly walk to the car. He missed her already. He knew this was coming but it was harder then he thought it would be. He knew that it would not be easy. It was far harder then he thought.  

He got into the car.  He felt tense. He got into the car. He started the car. He was going to change the radio station. He considered changing the station to espn or npr or putting on one of his hyim colections. He decided not to change the station. K love reminded him of her. He kept it on. 

It was a hard drive home. He felt her absence. He cried a bit. He knew part of this was fitigue. He was exchausted emotionaly and physically. He knew that his tiredness was clouding his feelings. 

The car pulled in to the drive way. He went inside his house. He went back to bed. He slept for a bit. 

His phone rang. He answered it. “Hi babe. The plane landed.  I made it safly there. ” she said. “I am so glad to hear that. I was not too woried but i was a bit concerned. ” he said. “I could tell. I know what you meen.i am always like that flying. ” she said.”i miss you. ” he said. “I miss you too. I will let you get back to bed..i will talk to you later. ” she said. “You got it. I love you.” matt said. “I love you too. “She said.

He hung up his cell phone. He went back to bed. He slept for a bit. He woke up. He missed her alot. He hoped that he would see her again soon.  He beleved he would.

It would be a dificult summer as she told him. This could be a good thing.she could be a growing experience for both of them. He would learn from this. He knew that in the grand scheme of thing, it would be a drop in the bucket. 

He would wait. He would be patcient. He trusted that the lord  would bring them back together.  

She went home to her apartment. She loved to stare at her engagement ring.she missed him as much as he missed her. She knew that this was part of the lords plan. She knew that it would work out. They would both trust and wait. 

End of wedding party.

Looking ahead

Comming soon

Matt tries to go on with his life.  He keeps active with his church. Amber gets ready to move. It is a hard sumer but the lord works behind the scenes to reunite these two. 

Wedding party part 11

Matt and amber had always had a complex rationship. They did not like each other at first. He found her toi outgoing, not as conservitive as he would like. 

Eventualy he warmed up to her. She became almost a part of the family.  She had gone above and beyound during the family crises after his father died. She did whatever he could for them. She gave the most important thing, her time. That was most appreciated.  

Matt and amber had become friends. They were really close friends. There had been hints that it could develop into something more. Neither one had been ready to take that step. 

The wedding of mat’s sister seemed to change everything for them. At the rehearsal the day before, amber asked him if he wanted to Mary her. He got a ring and told her yes.

He was in total shock that day. He could not beleve what had happened.he was engaged to amber now. He found it hard to beleve. He was beyound excited. He imagined his life with her. He knew that she would be a masive encourager to him. He knew that she would be fun at the same time. She had a perfect balance.  He was really looking froward to there life together. 

He prayed to the lord for his relationship with her. He dedicated there relationship to the lord. He finaly fell asleep but it took a bit. 

Amber was just as he excited as he was. Perhaps she was a bit more excited. At first mat was just tracy’s sister.  She could sense his hostility towards her. At the urging of his farther ,matt atenpted to make peace. Things continued to calm down between them. They became closer. 

She came to like him. She respected him. After a time,she came to consider the posibility of matt and her as a serious couple.  She started to consider it as a real posibility. She became desirous of it. 

She finaly decided to take the plange.she asked him . She was so glad that she had. She stared at her engagement ring. She was so happy. She imagined her life with him. Eventualy she too fell asleep.  

It was Sunday.  It was amber’s last full day in town. She would fly out Monday morning.  Amber went to services at her old penticostal church in the morning.  She wanted to say goodbye to everyone.  

She had a good time there but she missed matt. She did like being back at her old church.  

After church, amber went back to her furure mother in law’s home. Matt saw her and flew across the room. “Hello fiancée.  ” matt said. “Hello fiancée! ” amber said.

Matt did something that suprised her.he huged her. She wraped her arms around him.he squezed her. She loved physical affection.  She was not sure that he would be oppen to any display of efection. Apearently he was open to it. 

He took her hand. “How was church?” he asked. “It was good. I was glad to see everyone. How was yours? ” she asked. “It was good. The mesege was a little more hastitily put together then usual but it turned out ok. I think the lord use it. ” he said. 

“Your probably a bit on the exhausted side?” amber said. “A bit. Thats ok. I will get though it. ” he said. “Absolutely.  ” she said .

There mom was glad to have almost the whole family together. She loved her family. She was happy that the weding had gone well. She was sad that it was over. The preperation had really brought the family together. She enjoyed it. Now it was about to end.
