LENA
 
 
The rosy red apple glistened in the sun. I rubbed it on my school top to give it even more shine. I was about to dig my pure white teeth into the crisp part of the apple but suddenly I stopped short aware of a strange new figure approaching the playground. Slowly the girl walked towards me her steps as quiet as the pitter patter of the rain falling to the ground. When I could see her body fully I realised she had glossy blonde hair that reached her skinny shoulders. Her eyes looked down upon me. I looked up her eyes were as brown as a soft cuddly bear. She put her small fragile hands on the ground beside me and moved her body also beside me. My mouth fell open wide while the girl’s mouth moved open and shut. She was talking but strangely I could not hear because the shock of her sitting next to me took everything away from my very puny mind.
 
 Day after day I’d watch her walk, learn and talk to people including me. She was so weird and unique. She is so strange and such a mystery. Again her feet moved towards me and words came out of her mouth sentence after sentence. This girl sitting and talking to me like we have been friends forever. Something was up, something was wrong. Suddenly she grabs my freezing hands and pulls me. There is urgency in her eyes. She takes me through the dense forest snapping every twig in her way. We come across something small, furry and covered in blood. I almost swear for what I see. My face tenses up and the girl falls to her knees, tears in her eyes.
 
“LENA, LENA”, shouts a voice through the bushes. Lena grabbed me and once more we ran through the forest. Oomph, I hit a branch full force in the stomach and I doubled over in pain. I fell to the ground and unfortunately she still had hold of my hand. She fell on top of me and there was a moment when it felt like time stopped, I gazed up at her beautiful brown eyes and then we pulled apart. I went as red as a tomato. This time she did not grab my hand but told me to follow. We went further and further into the forest finally to find ourselves at a clearing. What I saw took my breath away. I was gazing down upon a wonderful view. Lakes, mountains and ever-green trees and I was up on a hill staring down at this amazing sight. Lena told me all about herself as we sat upon the hill. She told me she was sixteen (the same age as me) and she told me about her horrid family. Her dad is extra horrid, he kills deer for fun. Then I realised what I saw in the forest earlier on.
 
It was getting late and the stars came out one by one. I had never seen so many stars before. I stood up realising how late it was but Lena pleaded me to stay for she didn’t want to go back to her mean father. So I stayed another hour. We talked some more and listened to the wolf’s howl in the distance. I turned my head to Lena to find her shivering from head to toe. “Come here”, I whispered. She snuggled into me trying to find warmth. Two fat tears fell off Lena’s face one after the other. “Hey, don’t cry”. “No one has ever been so nice to me like you are now”, said Lena. She turned her head up towards me “and no one has looked at me the way you are looking at me now. Suddenly I was aware of how close we were to each other, with only the air between us. I looked down at the leaves moving along the earth. All around us, the forest was quiet; the sky spread out wide and sprinkled with stars overhead. I could feel her right there in front of me. She was still watching me. Then, slowly, Lena was moving closer, leaning in, I stayed where I was as she kissed me. Her lips were warm, her skin soft and after a while she drew back. This time I felt myself shiver but not because of the temperature.
 
Autumn turned into winter then winter turned into spring. Before long many years had passed and the summer holidays were around the corner. Lena was having her 21st birthday and all her life friends and family were invited. Lena had invited me of course for we are still going out. We had a strong love for each other and right now on this particular day I wanted to take it to the next level. Lena looked dazzling as she walked into the room. Her dress was an emerald green covered in silver sparkling beads that reflected from the sunshine. Slow, romantic music filled the room and the many couples walked to the dance floor and moved together to the exact beat of the music. I offered my arm to the lovely young lady in emerald green and she took it without hesitation. The night happened fast and before I knew it Lena and I was standing out in the garden. I moved to my knees staring into her brown eyes then saying that wonderful question that most girls wish to hear in some part of their life.
Lena hesitated and suddenly I became nervous. She mumbled some words then looked at me like I was supposed to understand what she was saying. Tears came to her eyes and she ran. She ran away from me and my confused and shocked face.
 
I didn’t understand. I tried to get in contact with Lena but she was avoiding me. We had been together for so long but then we fell apart so suddenly. We were glue that lost its stickiness. After a while I finally got the answer. I was walking to town and I spotted Lena’s dad. I didn’t really want to talk with him but I gathered up all my courage. What Lena’s dad told me was shocking. He had ordered an arranged marriage for Lena a long time ago. So Lena would be getting married to a guy she didn’t know if she likes it or not. I walked home with sadness and heartbreak in every step. It felt like my life was over and I couldn't do anything about it.
 
I was sent an invitation for the wedding but I could not go. I was not brave enough but I didn’t want to go home and sulk. So I went for a walk. I walked past the forest where Lena and I went when we were young, I walked past the shops and I soon came across the church and sadly Lena was already married and walking out of the church with her new husband. Her sparkling white wedding dress shined in the sun, her blond hair so shiny but all in the arms of another man.
