The Dash Diaries Finale: Chapter 9Wednesday8:13am - HomeMom's going home today. She won't be here when I get back from work. I really am going to miss her.We hugged for ages and ages before I had to leave for work."You've dealt with all this stuff pretty well. You hung in there better than I would have, trust me." she told me. I laughed."Thanks. I never thought I'd say this, but... you've been a great help."She grinned. "That's what I'm here for, sweetheart. And hey, you can phone me anytime. I'll be right there."I could feel tears welling up in my eyes. Oh, not again!!!"Oh, Dash, don't cry... You couldn't wait to see the back of me three weeks ago!" She giggled, and I just cried harder. She held me tight, and I buried my face in her mane."I don't want to live alone anymore, Mom..." I mumbled."But you have the power to change that! You need to follow your heart, and it'll take you on the right track. I have a feeling you won't be alone for long."We shared one last long hug before I made for the door.
