⋆Everyone Deserves A Second Chance!⋆

Or not...
















Chapter 1~ 1 y e a r. 3 6 5 d a y s.

My stomach grumbled from hunger, lunch would be served in 2 hours though. I couldn’t wait that long! I was starving. It grumbled again. “Ugh. I’ll call pizza!” I insisted taking 4 feet and reaching the telephone in my room. I dialed the number instantly and fell back onto my pillow that lied on my bed. All I heard was the dial tone, no response. Then, the person threw the other line answered, “This is Pizza Palace! How may we be of service!” I grinned humorously. They’re cheerful voice was too annoying. Before I said anything the door bell rang downstairs. “Oh damn! Hold that thought!” I placed my phone on my bed and rushed downstairs, I could never multitask, so staying on the phone and going to answer the doorbell was out of the question. Plus, it was rude to expect company and be chatting the phone with someone else at the exact moment. Though, I hadn’t expected company at this time...I looked out of the window, moving the window curtains beside me, trying to see who was at the front door. I decided to just answer it without knowing who it was for sure. My mom wasn’t at home...she was out shopping for groceries. And knowing her she takes a while to come back! And it couldn’t of been Dad, because he was taking up a shift at his work. Hm...I finally opened the door, my eyes narrowed to the box that was left on my porch. I picked it up with both hands, admiring the pretty ribbon on top of it, I went back inside and opened up the box curiously. The tearing took a while. I gasped at the amazing pile of letters that were in a stack. Probably 50 at least. “For me?" I wondered, than shook my head in disbelief. “Couldn’t be.” I chuckled. I tore up the envelope with excitement in my face. There was a card, I opened it raising the card high up, my eyes following the stylish style of writing, “1 year. 365 days.” I titled my head, confused. “What?” I said quietly. Remembering I still had the Pizza person on hold. I rushed back upstairs carrying the card in my hand. I wondered If the rest of those letters said the same thing...I would have to check that. How weird...kind of creepy. Maybe the person at the door was just the mail man? Or...a prank. "1 year and 365 days!? Is this some kind of anniversary gift? It can’t be from Mom or Dad because they’ve been together WAY longer than one year!" Hm...Maybe...maybe...It’s...Luc- I erased the thought from my mind, not planning on dwelling on the past...probably regretting ever THINKING THAT thought...My mouth opened, but no sound came out. My mind’s not working right all the sudden. Sharp piercing hollowness jabbed at every pore of my being. Excruciating, insufferable, agonizing pain? My lungs even started to hurt from the loss of oxygen. I picked up the phone with a shaking hand, “H-hello...sorry to bother you, maybe some other time...” Then hung up. I examined the tiny pink heart that sticked to the middle of the envelope, a tiny pink heart...The phone than rang again. That got me up quickly. I sighed picking it up, "Hello?" My friend was on the other line, "AISHA! I'M COMING OVER." Then the dial tone was heard. "Eh? Oh...Meli, she's always coming over." I didn't want my best friend to see me like this, I hid the card under my bed. And went back downstairs to hide the box full of letters. Meli lived next door, she would hurry up if I known her. The door bell rang. Ironic much... "Right on time." I commented opening the door with a smile. She hugged me, like always I fought for air.
"Okay...I get it..." I choked.
"I missed you that's all!" She let go with a timid look.
I smiled slightly trying to make her feel better, but she suspected.
"WHAT'S WRONG!?" She glanced over my shoulders, seeing half of the box I hid behind the couch.
I was never that good at hiding stuff...I assured her it was nothing with a blank stare that said, 'What box?'
I raised my shoulders trying to prevent her to see, "Ahaha! What are you looking at like that!?" I laughed nervously.
"You ish hidin' something MEEEEEEH LEMME SEEE!" She ran right past me like a bull, I couldn't tame her! She giggled as she grabbed the box of letters and ran upstairs.
"MELIIIIIII!" I hollered freaking out, panting up the stairs.
Does she think this is her own house!?
"VANDALISMMMMMM!" I hollered as my feet ran up one step and than another, and then...another...it got really tiring. How did MELI run up they're so fast!? I'm so not fit...
I heard a door slam I finally arrived in the hallway upstairs.
"MEELLLIII!" I ran up to my door banging on it, kicking it, screaming at the top of my lungs.
She locked it.
Crap...I also remember hiding that one card under my bed...
Meli shouted in an outrageous voice that hurt my ears, "ARE THESE LOVE LETTERS!?!?"
"Ugh." I complained hearing a ringing coming out of my ears.
I heard her tearing all of those envelopes open...I kept hearing that for a while, than all the more longer I was hearing ringing.
"WHAT AM I DOING!?" I questioned myself slapping my forehead.
I ran downstairs and out the house, "I'll get in threw my window!" I smirked using my brain for once.
I spotted a ladder placed near a fence. I took it without a second thought and placed it underneath my window.
As I climbed up, my arms almost reaching my window frame, my head popping up into my room, I saw no one...
"EH!?!?" I became frustrated. Taking one more step on the ladder and jumping into my room, thrown to the floor. I heard a mysterious noise in the closet. It's gotta be Meli...
I stood up and checked in the closet real fast.
Meli held up the letter that I had hid under my bed, I stretched my arms in the air trying to reach it.
At this point I regretted being shorter than she was.
"CAN YOU NOT REACH IT!?" She teased raising it up even higher.
Times like these...these childish moment with Meli meant the most to me...I was always a happy child, no worries at all. Life was peachy. Meli hated me for bragging, but I helped her threw her troubles, I had none...None that I didn't keep secret...I had one secret in particular I couldn't tell her...I still can't tell her...I've hoped after a year I could forget. But as many years do pass by...I may never forget...no matter how many seconds, days, weeks, months, I couldn't bring myself to forget...A wound hurts...but it heals eventually...A broken heart remains broken with all its pieces still un-collected...
A smile is a smile, it will lighten up some ones day...no matter how bad day you are having. His smile...never faded from my mind...I still tend to get those flashes of the past...nowadays...It's gotten worse...

Chapter 2~ B r o k e n

We started out as childhood friends, since Kindergarten. Middle school, and then came high school...the day we started going out was Sophomore Year. In the middle of it. I remember the exact day. Time, and how good it felt to be going out with him...he grew more popular with his looks during Sophomore year though, all the girls were his own personal fans. He didn't mind though, I knew he would never cheat...He pinky swore, he wouldn't leave my side until we were out of high school. And he would be going off to college in a different state. We were cherishing the time that remained still. Everyone single date...kiss...hug...I remembered it exactly, how it felt, how much I didn't want those times to end. He was my first love...and...regrettably my last...how do you STOP loving someone you've loved ever since Kindergarten? It was the hardest thing I could forget...and still can't forget...

"Lucian? I don't want you to go..." My voice was started to break, my body felt so weak and frail even in the sunrise that was beginning to rise. The last sunrise we will see together...
"...I can't do anything about it...stop crying." He clenched my hands and slipped his fingers threw mine, kissing my forehead. Just repeating the same line over and over again, I love you.
"When will you come back...?" My voice was hollow and it had no hope. For he already broke the promise of being with me forever.

Lucian had gotten into College earlier then anyone expected, he was intelligent...I wanted him to have a good future...I did. But...I wanted us to NEVER end. He had one more day to stay with me...just ONE. Why was this happening to me? I've gotten a nightmare after that day, I couldn't get myself up...I didn't feel like waking up for anything that day...Telling him Good-bye? I refused. Because I didn't want to say those hurtful words to him. I never want too! He was the perfect boyfriend...of course, there were times when I would overreact...he would be the blame of it...he had the control in the relationship mostly. Today...the day I couldn't bear to open my eyes to. 1 year...and 365 days. Exactly. Today had been our 1 year anniversary. And...he was leaving...I swear...HE PLANNED THIS! How can he just leave like this?! ONE YEAR OF BEING TOGETHER AND HE PULLS THIS...why couldn't he leave after high school!? Am I just being paranoid? My mom got a phone call from Lucian just before his departing. He wanted to talk to me, to say good-bye I would assume. ...On the phone...I slept in bed wiping off my very, very cold tears that ran down my face from yesterday. I didn't have the heart to say good-bye to him...why couldn't he just come see me in my own home instead of calling!? Turns out, he left this morning...he called me from a completely different state. He wasn't no where near me anymore...He said to me his trip was great, LONG, but it went great. Hearing his voice...hearing it so far from me...and not beside me anymore...I never wanted to wake up again the next morning, I wished I could just die...But, it was time to start a new life. A new chapter. Senior Year with my best friend, Meli. [T^T]

It was about a half a year since Lucian left. I've been doing alright. He stopped calling though. Those late night phone conversations that lasted until 5 in the morning disappeared like I thought it would. No more phone calls except ones from Meli. I met Meli during the summer, she didn't quite know about me and Lucian. We weren't that close while I was still with Lucian. But since Senior Year is here, we've become best friends ever since she moved into my neighborhood.

It wasn't a secret though, while we WERE together everyone knew. Some would love or hate me for being with him. Didn't matter about other people. When I would look into his eyes and say that he loves me, I couldn't help but feel like he was the ONLY one that mattered, you know? NOT even my family compared. But, I KNEW what I was getting myself into...I've tried denying these negative thoughts of Lucian...he thought our love was just a game, he would always call me an hour later than he usually should. Making me wait against my bedside awaiting his calls...Pathetic...

A year... I thought deeply, my thoughts and memories still haunting. Just waiting at the corner, until I dwelled miserably on them again. Does this make you happy, Lucian?...

Sending letters, writing what you wrote in them. What does this mean!? Is this a sign your coming back? Do you still CARE or even REMEMBER us? Doesn't matter, it won't change crap no matter how many times you beg. It's alright, I was too blame taking it this far, a WHOLE year meant nothing to you...We'll see...we'll see when I see you eye to eye again...

Chapter 3~ A v i s i t


Senior year has begun!!

"HURRRRRY UP AND GET INTO YOUR UNIFORM, AISHA~" Meli shouted showing off how good she looked with the new uniforms this year. A mirror stood in front of her.
I groaned rushing myself, fitting into the uniform became very awkward! WAS IT BACKWARDS?!
"HAHAHA! IT DOESN'T GO THAT WAY SILLY!" She laughed pointing at me.
I whined loudly, my whine heard throughout the whole house.
"YOUR RUSHING MEEEE!"
"C'MON HUUURRYYY! NO WAY I'M GOING TO BE LATE TO THE FIRST DAY OF SENIOR YEAR!!"
With that thought, it made me feel even more rushed and frustrated, and that wasn't a good combination on my stomach.
But I closed my eyes and took a deep breath, finally the school uniform fit, and it looked alright on me.
We were already late, no time for breakfast. We sprinted to school laughing at each other for taking so much time to get in our uniforms. "Seriously, next time don't make me wake you up!" Meli chuckled reminding me, it was because I was so depressed in bed lately...
"Don't worry! I'll make sure to get some sort of alarm clock, or something." I smiled vaguely in her line of sight, the smile actually looked real.
She smirked back and accidentally ran into a poll. I started almost laughing, but was more concerned. "MELI!? YOU ALRIGHT!" I knelt down beside her and she'd seen stars spin around her head.
"Not...funny...don't laugh...at me..." Her speech was slurred and it almost sounded like she was drunk.
"Were gonna be even more late now..." I whined trying to shift her weight onto me, but she would always lose balance and fall all over the place.
"YOU GO! I'll be fine..."
"Uh, I'm not leaving you here! Someone could kidnap you!" I warned and she laughed.
"Stop being so dramatic! Look! I'M FINE NOW!" She tried getting up by her self steadily and her body slanted to the side, she couldn't even stand straight. I pretty much had to support her the whole way to school, I'll be taking her to the nurse first, that would be her first class, haha.
She was so clumsy, honestly.
I'm always having a nervous stomach when it comes to first days, and when I was wondering inside the halls I sort of got lost, where was the Nurses office again? Meli would black out most of the time, and she was to heavy for me to drag her over here. I walked back the same direction we came from, and seen that I already passed the Nurses office. I sighed and muttered to myself, the Nurse behind the counter gave a friendly smile as I walked in, and I glanced up at the clock, crap. 20 minutes late. "Um, can you take care of her? She...sort of ran into a pull." I asked the nice nurse lady, she nodded once and took Meli to the bed, I heard Meli muster at least a sigh, that way I knew she would be okay. I headed for homeroom, which was...around here somewhere.
