Hometown Chapter Sixtypublished
Tex and I left for school. I could hear everything so clear. It was unreal. Tex's diesel truck was load; it scared me when he cranked it up. I was not expecting it to be so loud.
"It's so loud," I stated as he drove off.
"It's louder than a normal truck. I put an exhaust system on it," he said prideful.
"Oh okay," I said.
I sounded weird to myself. I guess I was really hearing myself for the first time in a long time.
"What is it like," he asked suddenly.
"Honestly, it' scary. Everything I hear is kind of loud. But then again, it is amazing. Everything sounds so clear," I told him.
"That's good. Are you going to tell your dad," he asked as he glanced over at me.
"No, not at all! I don't plan on telling anyone and you can't either," I said.
"Why not? We are going to have to tell the coach," Tex said.
"No, absolutely not," I said.
"We have to; we don't have any other choice," he said.
