I saw her standing at the other side of the shop, and yelled out to her.

"Tash" she turned round, saw me, and came running to me, we embraced for a long time, then stepped back to look at each other.

"Well, you havn't changed much, you look exactly the same" she told me, smiling.

"You neither" I replied, smiling too.

"Um, excuse me" I turn round, and there is a lady looking at me, "Are you ok?" she asks,

"Yeah, I'm fine" I reply, she doesn't look convinced,

"Well, its just . . . . your talking to yourself" she says gently, I look at her in confusion,

"What? I'm not talking to myself, I'm talking to my friend, Tash" I take her hand for emphasis, I can feel her shake, she's offended, the lady looks at me like I'm insane,

"Honey" she says gently, "there's no one there" I don't reply, she's being horrible to Tash, I feel like slapping her, the shop assistant comes over to ask if everythings alright, the lady says that I must be special, different,

"Different" they continue to talk, & the news comes on over the radio

"An American Airlines aircraft has crashed into a house in Stanley, luckily, the people in the house escaped with minor injuries. The plane was flying to Hobart, with 200 aboard..." Tash gasps, interupting the radio,
"What?" I ask,

"I was on that plane . . . . There were terrorists . . . . and a Bomb" I stare at her in shock, "There was nothing we could do but sit there and watch it go off" We're both silent for awhile, then Tash flips her head up, a determined look on her face. "I have to find the plane, my Mum" she kisses me on the cheek, then disappears. I just stand here for awhile,taking it all in, then collapse onto the floor, crying, as I realise. Through my tears Iscream it aloud.

"Tash is dead"
