Lysil woke up and stretched. Today was the day that she is going to start her adventure. At 21 it was long past time for her to find her own way in the world. She got up and dressed quickly. She really wasn't taking all that much with her. On the way out the door she grabbed a few slices of smoked ham. "best not to wake the parents. I don't want another scene like the last time I tried to leave." she thought. She walked to the gate. Turned and took one last look at her home. She sighed, turned and started walking down the road. What she didn't notice were her parents watching her from a bedroom window. They watched her walk away then shut the curtain. Yes, It was time for her to be on her own.
