In just over ten miles of freeway, it seemed I’d gone from
civilization to vast wilderness. This stretch of I-94 East took me
through hilly terrain and forest on both sides. The towering pines and
thick maples should have put me at ease. I should have enjoyed the
sharp, musky scent of the woods and the open sky as dusk settled in.
But, this was a foreign land to me, and I was hundreds of miles from the
only home I’d ever known, with no plans to ever go back. This wasn’t my
place. I was just passing through. Part of me resented the cool, crisp
wilderness air traced with a hint of ozone. A storm brewed from the
The irst dusting of sprinkling rain hit the windshield of my Ford
Escape. I iddled with the instruments to set the wipers. A breeze
picked up, and the tops of the tallest trees on either side of the road
started to sway. A crack of thunder made me jump in my seat. A jagged
streak of lightning speared into the woods far to the east, and a faint
puff of smoke curled up above the tree line.
I worked the radio dial, trying to ind something local for news of a
tornado. I tried to remember, is it safer to stay with your car or ind a
ditch if you’re caught in one? Rain pelted down in earnest. The storm
had come up so fast. A leaf plastered to my windshield and got stuck
under the wiper blades. Each swipe left a thick smear across my ield of
vision, and I adjusted the blade speed, trying to loosen it.
I ducked down, trying to ind a spare patch of clear windshield. The
rain angled right toward me in thick, heavy drops. If it got much worse, I
was going to have to pull over. I did not want to be stuck out here. This
wasn’t me. This wasn’t my place. I had no place anymore.
I didn’t know how much further I had to go until I reached Ann
Arbor. Four hours? Maybe less, if this storm didn’t hold me up. I just
wanted to get there, except I didn’t really want to be there. Two years
ago, it would have been my dream. I earned a music scholarship in
voice to the University of Michigan. My Dad had been so proud of me. It
would make me the irst person in our family to graduate from college. I
was all set to leave, and Dad got sick.
Though he’d never smoked a day in his life, he contracted an
aggressive form of lung cancer. They said it was probably caused by his
years as a ireman. He fought hard, and lasted longer than most with his
same diagnosis. He hung on for over a year. But then just after
Christmas, he inally let go. I’d forgone college to take care of him. It was
just the two of us. He had no one else. College could wait. But now,
seven months later, I’d lost him, and it was time for me to start my own
life. Everyone said so.
