I almost hugged the bastard. Honestly, it killed me. There was a phone booth about 50 feet away and I decided I should chew the rag a little with old Phoebe.
Things really started to change two years ago. The first two days took a lot to get used to. I quit that crap the middle of my senior year. Why not a phone call? I was trying to avoid this particular happening, but he somehow worked the conversation over to me, which is very surprising when you knew someone like Stradlater as well as I did.
Boy, you can bet a flood of emotions came over me. That may not ever be enough- but nothing can take it away from me. I learned from her life being cut so short and there being SO much left she wanted to accomplish to live life to the fullest.
They made me so gullible. Once school started, I would head over to my old job and bag groceries until it was time to return to school. Though, I do get pretty stark staring mad at times.
Not in the middle of the night, of course but when I get home from work. Angry that she left me with so many questions. I got on the first cab I Holden 10 years later and boy did it smell like he had just eaten an old ham-n-cheese sandwich.
I mean ten years gone just like that. And my mother, being the strict woman of appearances and deception that she is, cared too much about image as well. I look to my right and saw my father looking at meas if he was trying to get into my head and go over all my tactics as to how I was going to defend the kid.
I can almost picture them caressing me, and being one with me, trying to satisfy my need for a companion. Why did her mom send the letter? Time to lock and load. It got me reminiscing and thinking about how I had told Phoebe I wanted to be the "catcher in the rye" for little kids. She had curly brown hair and equally brown eyes.
I spent three whole months in that sanitarium, possibly the most boring months of my life. He seemed okay with it. I know, deep down, that even though I am, she was never angry- and she is not angry now about the stupid fights and the constant butting of heads.
I felt so comfortable around her I found myself confessing my life story. I was sure Stradlater would be more than happy with that. I looked up as the judge called the court to order. There were already a lot of people there, and I tried to get as close to Jane as I could. I felt bad about putting so much on her shoulders but I needed someone.
I was really worried. It was really embarrassing, but I got over it. A memory of the night before I left Pencey Prep popped up and I pushed it away, knowing I would have to keep my mind on the court. Going in to the adult world to be fake and useless like everyone else was not something I was interested in.
Now that I think about it, I really have changed a lot. I wanted her to know I was there. I wanted to lie, I wanted to lie so badly, but I was honestly running out of people to stay with.
Since it was a weekday and I had to be out. I was practically jumping in the air to see. The fact that this hat survived this long kills me, I swear.That’s another thing that Holden wants to tell us.
After many years, we all have our cool story life Holden, that we can think about it and laugh about what we did.
Holden. Grief and Loss- ten years later It has been 10 years since my mother’s passing, and I can no longer remember the sound of her voice.
Over and over again, I repeat the things she used to say and the way she said them in my head. The Catcher In The Rye Holden 10 Years Later Holden, Ten Years Later "Allieeeee, Allieeeee, please, don’t go, come back to me, don’t go, I’ll play with you, I promise, pleaseeeeee".
I guess it’s another one of those nights.
