She was... relatively easy to find. It only took us an hour. I was so relieved that I just passed out. A thank you to Todd and Taben for the help. Brennon stayed in the house to keep Dean sane. The three of us could move faster and cover more area. We have better senses as well... I'll get to that later though.
So.. what happened....
She had made a post. I had thought it was just a joke because she was pissed at Dean and I for teasing her. You know, just normal brotherly teasings and all. The fact she was constantly making that "pchoo" sound and laughing. We yelled at her repeatedly to knock it off. It was getting annoying. She finally stopped. Then Brennon did a check on the message which translated to (what I saw) a bunch of numbers. Then he realized the letters mixed in. really inconspicuous. And that's when all hell broke loose.
I had trouble reaching Todd, that's always a tell tale sign It is near. Finally get through to him. Call Taben and we head out. We hear her screaming coming from the woods. Then it got quiet. We took off. We found her. She was in the same spot where I had been found. She.. was hanging from a tree. She's alright she was just hanging there by her wrist. We got her down checked her over and came back. She was scared and sobbing. Dean took care of her and took her into her room and got her to bed.
I just crashed after that. Between relief and the stress of the moment. I just crashed. Thank goodness tomorrow's a weekend. We can sleep in. And I do intend to. At least kind of. I guess Bran and the others are going to be coming up here. I told her she didn't have to but.... we do appreciate it. The support will mean a lot to us. I just apologize we won't be able to have real fun like we normally do.
Brennon's been so awesome through all of this. He's been so helpful in getting everything set up and worked around. He's been working from home so he can keep an eye on Candy and Dean till they get everything sorted out with school. I'm lucky to have such an amazing man in my life. I love him so much.
Ok, now is where I go and start getting ready. We meet with my parents attorney today to get everything settled and dealt with. After that we'll just be able to... mourn. I don't know if I'm looking forward to that. But in all honestly. I've been feeling at a stand still. I'll be happy to be able to start moving forward.
I just don't know how I'm going to get used to being without mom and dad.
