Andrew was from a wealthy family, and was raised well. He was a child of good, never made rebellious choices until Saturday night. Andrew had never felt so much regret and guilt.

It was a weekend night and Andrew decided to sneak out his window, since his parents did not believe in parties.

    I could have gotten a car to avoid him --my town is small and my mother never thought I needed one-- I don't, not really but, on most days of my school week, it would be nice. I'm late on the days after it rains, puddles are ubiquitous and people who enjoy driving into them seem to follow me everywhere.
