Finding God... Part 2
Continued from 'Finding God... Part 1'

Hesitantly I climbed out of the car. One look at the place and I wanted to get back in and demand to go home. There was one lone small oval. Overgrown grass. Dead flowers. Trees with broken limbs draped over the building. The building was brown and ran down. A small wooden ramp hedged across the land with cluttered cabin rooms by its side.

Tugging on my friends jacket with pleading eyes I say to her, "Lets not do this. Lets go home. I made a mistake, I shouldn't have come."

It was a week since the incident in my bedroom when I heard the voice. And as I foolishly spoke to the roof asking if it was God and if He was real, I felt all the more stupid as I was responded with a deafening silence. My silent thoughts were interrupted by the shrilling sound of the phone ringing. It was my best friend asking me to come on a youth camp with her for the weekend. Reluctantly I agreed.

And now, a week on and I wanted to escape before it had even began. Before I could run off a man with blonde hair, blue eyes and a goofy grin comes bounding towards me.

"Heeyyy!!!!" He greets, with more enthusiasm I could handle.

"Hi.." I mutter, looking him up and down and sizing in my mind who this person was.

"I'm Nathan, it's great to have you at the camp!" He held out his hand in expectation of a hand-shake.

"Yeah.. it's... great.." I say, forcing a smile. Somehow I knew that this weekend would be life altering. I just didn't know how, what, or why. As far as I was concerned, I didn't want to know. I didn't want to know these people, their lives, or anything about them.

All I wanted to do was go home.

Yet, home was about to come knocking at my door....

    This is part 2, and it's not the end! This is really tough on your readers sam. We your faithful readers, plead with you to finish the story. I know, I should enjoy the story, smell the roses, but you just told me the flowers were dead so that's not going to happen.
