Tina Belcher sat in her car, formerly her parents’ old red station wagon that she named Chariot after her favorite Equestranaut, outside of her dormitory.
When Linda and Bob had offered to drive her to college 3 hours away, Tina refused with a groan giving her parents the impression she couldn’t imagine anything more annoying.
However it was in this moment Tina was aware that her mother would have cried openly the entire time about Tina leaving and it would have weakened her resolve to actually go through with this.
As it was Linda had hugged and kissed her daughter multiple times while tearfully telling her if ANYTHING happened to call immediately and they would be there to get her day or night.
Bob had hugged Tina tight and though he didn’t say much she saw him in the rearview mirror as she drove away wiping his tears with the back of his hand.
She tarried in the car just a few moments longer to psych herself up.

“DRIVE DRIVE DRIIIIIIIVVVVVEEEEE” as if to imply that she’d never get away if she looked back.
