Chapter 50 – Going Back to Cali

8 11 2008


well, i’m still not sure what’s going on, but it looks like we finally get to go home. research team 7 are taking us back to eiriendor.

i don’t know what this means. does this mean sakura’s dad told them what they wanted to know, or did they give up? they sure went to a lot of effort, so i wouldn’t have thought they’d want to give up at this stage. we haven’t seen sakura’s dad very much. she tried questioning him, but he said he had no idea what any of this was about, and he’s not the most approachable of people. i think sakura is really angry with him, but she’s trying not to show it.

unfortunately, this does mean we’re back in these noxious trucks again. we’ve been travelling for ages. i hope they’ll be taking a more direct route than the route they took to get here. with any luck, i could be back in hercynia by tuesday.

i’m going to be so glad to get home, because frankly, and no offence to sakura or her family, this has been the worst holiday ever.

i think everything that happened here has really brought a lot of things home to me. it’s made me realise just how unpredictable life is. you really have to seize every moment, because you don’t know what could happen to you next.

i’ve also decided i need to look into enrolling in some kind of self-defence classes when i get back home. these things are important. you never know when you might need to defend yourself.
