I had just gotten to California.A long journey from Texas.I was going home.After living in Texas for over a year I was finally returning to the city that I had longed for twelve months to be in.We had just arrived at a Holiday Inn.My mother and I on our own.We had been at the hotel for a little over twenty four hours.My cell phone rang and rang.It was midnight

In my moms eyes she was getting angry because what on earth was that important as to call that late.Finally I returned my friend Leslie's phone call.Of course I didnt expect anything major.Afterall I had just seen her a few days before.I thought it was a breakup with her boyfriend.Her voice however sounded alarmed.
