Entry: Runaway

Runaway
by Amy Barkman


“I fled him down the nights and down the days.” Okay, so that’s some guy talking about God but I’m serious. I fled from Harvey Crackenthorpe down the nights and days of my entire middle and high school years. I gave up in college and married him. The day we finally got the divorce I sat across the table from him and let myself wonder if I was making a mistake. It didn't take long to answer. No way. But later, on the steps outside the courthouse, we held each other and cried like babies.
