The Change (chapter 1)

907 10 7

You never think about death much, like.....what happens afterwards, is it dark, light, do you live another life? Well I do know what happens, it's a bit like living another life but only slightly different......

As I opened my eyes the sunlight hit my face, I was still tiered but yawned and got out of bed. I slowly made my way down the stairs, went into the kitchen, carefully made myself some breakfast, and ate it

"Cara, time for school!" my dad shouted, it was eight 'o'clock.

"Coming dad!" I quickly replied, I got dressed and grabbed my school bag as fast as I could.

"Cara, you're going to be late!" my dad was getting impatient. I ran down the stairs as quickly as I could, out the door, and jumped in the car.

"Finally! How long dose it take?!" my dad said sarcastically.

At school I met my friends Rachel and Maria, "Hi Rachel!" I smiled at Rachel, "Hi Maria!" I turned to Maria.

"Hi Cara, come on we're going to be late for tutor!" Maria shouted, running along dragging me and Rachel behind her. We were 5 minutes late for tutor and had to go back at break.........! Detention was boring, we had to sit there for 5 minutes doing absolutely nothing, wile the teacher went on about something to do with responsibility (obviously; no-one was listening)!

Later, at the end of the day, me and Hannah walked to the bus together,

"So......, what's up?" I asked, nervous of the silence, me and Hannah used to be best friends until high school when she fell in with the popular crowd.

"Not much, you?" Oh my gosh; she replied!

"Me neither...I...."

"Oh, hi Josh!" she casually walked away from me towards a beautiful boy sitting on his own, he had golden brown eyes, beautiful pale skin, and scruffy brown hair. I sat down on my own and turned to look at them. He looked at her, he said something but I was too far away to hear him. She sat next to him and said, "Tonight?" I didn't know if it was a question or a command, he nodded clearly and half smiled.

The next day Hannah wasn't at school, but 'the boy' was. I had this urge to ask him if he knew why she wasn't there. But for some reason, something stopped me, it was fear! Not the fear of getting embarrassed (because he didn't know why), not the fear of him, but the fear....that he might tell me!!

First I had P.E we played dodge ball, I was good at dodge ball it was fun....normally, but this time all I could think about was Hannah and him, I had to ask him.................

"Ouch!" I screeched in horror, I seemed to be in the medical room,

"Oh my gosh.....your awake!" Maria was screaming in my face.

"Ouch, again." I joked to Maria!

"Oh, sorry. Are you ok?" she asked,

"I would be if I knew what happened." I replied.

"You don't remember?" I didn't know if it was a question....

"Well you were playing dodge ba...." She began, but she was interrupted.

"No Maria, you over exaggerate." The nurse had entered the room,

"Fine." I held in the urge to laughed.

"Good." She turned to me, "You had a fall in P.E; you got hit in the head by a dodge ball then fell to the ground hitting you're head again." Silly me! "Now, do you feel dizzy?"
