Ryan Wisneski November 1, 2007 The Other Side This had to be the longest car ride of her life. Sasha was so anxious to get to her new home that every minute seemed to stretch itself into an hour and she was very impatient. It was only about a three hour car ride but with four people in a two door Acura, the car ride felt like an eternity. Sasha was not a fun person to be in the back seat with for an extended period of time either, her fidgeting, poking, and constant mumbling almost drove Alyssa to the point of insanity. She tried hard to stay as far from her as possible but with ten inches between them there wasn’t much either could do. Sasha proceeded in continuing her annoyance, she couldn’t help it so no one blamed her or yelled at her for it but it was a constant bother that undoubtedly pissed off the other members of the family and had them just as anxious to reach the destination.

I’m her mother how could I let this happen!” “It’s not your fault Lisa, it’s no one’s fault, and this is the best thing for her. This is something that has to be done for her sake. Now be strong for me, baby, and let’s go inside and handle this.” As the two exited the car, a tear trickled down Lisa’s cheek going without notice from Russell or the girls. The two walked from the car hand in hand each seeking a sense of reassurance and strength coming from the others tight grip. The walk to the front door seemed longer than the car ride for Mrs. Merriman, with each step the weight of the world seemed to come crashing down on her. This was the doorway to her daughter’s new life without her mother and although Sasha seemed more than ready, Lisa was being torn apart inside. Once the family entered ‘B-Block’, as Alyssa referred to it, they approached the front
