Gen 7 Chapter 5 – Part 2

Marc and I spent every second that we could together as the end of the year came to a close. We would be graduating soon and that meant I would be leaving and we wouldn’t see each other for at least 6 months. We also wanted to make sure we had plenty of things to remember each other buy so we decided to go have some pictures taken. We took some silly, some serious, and of course some romantic ones as well!They all came out so well. I was going to have a whole wall in my dorm filled with wonderful memories. My degree would take a total of two years but every six months we would have a couple weeks to spend together and make new wonderful memories and before we knew it we would be back together again and everything would be perfect!I had already been accepted into the college of my choice, but I had to fill out some paperwork before I could go. I made sure to have this done before graduation later today so that I could relax and enjoy myself. I picked up my pet turtle, Fred and told him all about graduating and going off to college. My parents had gotten him for me after Lady died and while it wasn’t the same I grew to love him and he was such a good listener! I gave Fred a hug and told him how much I was going to miss him! I’m sure he could have cared less but I wished I could have brought him along, unfortunately the college had a strict no pets policy and my parents said he would be fine staying with them while I was gone. After my graduation ceremony I held my diploma in my hand in disbelief. I had finally done it! Now it was time for the next stage of my life and I felt ready to take on the world! I made sure to capture this moment with the love of my life as well so that I would always have it with me when I needed reassurance. Life was so perfect, but my only wish was that Marc could have gone with me to my college. He already had a job offer though and was going to be starting the week after I left. I told him my parents and I were going to be leaving in the morning for campus and I could see how much this upset him. Why I wasn’t sure, I mean we had already talked about it over and over again for the last few months. Seeing him like that made me feel like maybe I should rethink my choice to leave afterall. I knew I had to go though, my parents had already paid my tuition, I was all packed up. I wrapped my arms around him for the last time until I saw him on my break I felt the tears I had been holding back start to fall. I tried to be strong, but once I felt him crying I just couldn’t hold it back any longer.
