You've got to be kidding me! I can't believe you'd do this. I know you're really mad, but you're coming back right?

Look I've already explained the situation, you shouldn't even be surprised. Mom and I have had it with each other for a long time now and I'm tired of arguing. And you can tell her I'll come back when I feel like it. Peace.

This isn't going to be a one night thing Ava. I'm moving out, I'm eighteen. Besides, I have enough money to stay afloat for about a week. After that I'll get a job somewhere. I might move west if I have to, like to Cali. I gotta go now, I'm driving. I'll keep in touch and let you know what my next move is. Peace.
