"I'm so sorry Lyra!" My best friend ran Tiffany, ran in crying and hugged me. I hugged her back, crying on her shoulder.

"Let it out Lyra, just let it out" she said patting my back

"Why? Why did she have to go? I couldn't even apologise" I said crying even more

''Í dont know Lee, I really dont but we'll make it through this, we'll make it through okay?'' she said also crying

"It's almost time" my aunt said walking into my room

"I'll see you later okay?" Tiffany sniffed and cleaned her eyes and I nodded, she waved and walked out. My aunt came to meet me and hugged me.

"Ohh.. My poor baby, how can such a thing happen to you?" She asked with her chin on my head. She pulled away, and out her hands on her shoulder.

" you need to stop crying, you need to go out there and be strong" she said and hugged me again before walking towards the door

"That is what your mom would have wanted" she whispered before walking out.

I scratched my red eyes and walked to my mirror, I looked like a mess. My long black hair was flying all over the place, my green eyes were as red as ever, I had a runny nose and my smile was up side down. And I was pale, very, very pale, still in my pjamas I sniffed and stood up straight, if my mom was here she would hate to see me like this, she would have wanted me to stop crying and be strong and smile and that's exactly what I'm going to do, I'm going to do what she would have wanted me to do. I went into the bathroom and turned on the shower, I let the warm water relax me for a while then I started with my hair. I washed it thoroughly with shampoo and conditioner then I rinsed. I moved onto my body and washed myself until I was clean. I rinsed and turned off the tap, I got out and tied a towel around my body and around my hair. I brushed my teeth and dried my hair with my favourite hair dryer that my mom had bought for me recently, I felt the tears coming but I stopped it. No more crying..at least not now. I went back into my room and found my black dress on my bed. The funeral dress, it was a long black dress with long sleeves and white bottons at the end. It was a simple dress but I didnt mind, I didnt even want a dress, i dont even want to go..but I have to. I wore the dress, and applied my make up. Then I stood up and slowly made my way to the window. It was a sunny day, the sun was all bright and warm and lovely, the exact opposite of how I was feeling.

I dont understand.

why did this have to happen to me?

what did I do to deserve it?


so this is the preview
