Well I know it wasn’t you who held me down
Heaven knows it wasn’t you who set me free
So often times it happens that we live our life in chains
And we never even know we have the key…
Jorja locked the jeep as Regina removed her bags. She could wait til in the morning to unpack, there wasn’t any hurry and she really just didn’t feel like unpacking anything this afternoon.
“Jorja, thanks for going this weekend. I know it’s been a bit of a bumpy ride and I know we have a few differences of opinion on some things, but all in all, I almost felt like time had never passed – that we hadn’t spent so many years apart.”
“I know, and I really did have a good time. Except for rolling off the side of the mountain and my encounter with Max.”
“Well, you just have to learn to take Max in small doses. He’s brutally honest about what he thinks, and sometimes it’s not what everyone else might think. Just give him a little time. Maybe the next time we go, it’ll be a little smoother for you and him.”
“I think we should let my ankle have a few weeks to heal before we strike out again.” Jorja really wanted to put some time between herself and Max Durand. She just wasn’t quite ready for anymore of his company.
“Yeah, of course. I was thinking maybe around the 4th of July. There’s not quite as much activity on the trails, and we could try Hemmed In Hollow the next time. Besides, Millie would love to see you, and you might get to meet her husband as well. They usually spend the 4th camping with the girls in the National Park. You know, work and play sometimes go hand in hand.”
“Ok, yeah, that’ll give me a few weeks to heal, and I won’t have to rush back to teach a class. We’re out that whole week for the holiday. The summer schedule is kind of cramped; although classes are shorter, you still have just as much to teach. I haven’t decided if I’m going to sign up for a summer class, really.”
Regina laughed. “It’s still hard for me to imagine you as a teacher, Jorja. You just never seemed to be the type.”
