1 | SharpiesShe looked at her old notebook filled with her drawings. She knew the lecture would be a long one so she opened up the old notebook and started sketching out a small drawing focusing on her sadness. The drawing was compelled of a head of a girl with terrible bangs that no one would ever get, and a sad look on her face. Next was a cloud that was raining and had a depressed look. And finally a small cactus was saying "I just want a hug". On the page she wrote on the top "Gloomy Day". And when she was done sketching she looked up and her teacher was looking at her, waiting for a answer. "Well Miss.Walters? I'm waiting!" the overweight teacher said. She looked around the room, noticing everyone staring at her. "Umm sir, can you please repeat the question.." She replied, very confused. The teacher rolled his eyes and was about to speak. And then the bell rang. The old man sighed and dissmissed the class. And then the world suddenly turned upside down.
Sapphire Walters is an ordinary University student, taking an art course. Her mother just died a few months ago from cancer and she wasnt even there to say goodbye due to exams. It was the first week after the 2 month summer break and she was trying to adjust back into school life and after a long day she broke down.
(1st Person POV)
My vision blurred right when i closed my dorm door. Tears suddenly running down my face, and my hands trying to cover the shame i put on myself. After a few minutes i wiped down my tears and put down my bag. I looked around the small rectangular room and walk towards my bed surronding soft pillows. I sigh and lay down onto the soft white bed and drift into slumber.
"Saph!," A loud, but familiar voice yelled as i woke up, still sleepy. "hhhh 5 more minutesssss...." I replied to the voice while drooling. The voice sighed and pulled me off of my comfortable bed. "owwww that hurt you ass" i groaned as i got up and rubbed my eyes. As my vision cleared up i saw a my best friend, Ellie with her scrunched up face. "I told you earlier that we would go out to drink coffee and that i would pick you up at 5, but when i enter the room all i see is you sleeping and mumbling about pizza and cake!" She scolded as she put her arms to her hips and looked around the place and spotted a photo of my beautiful mother. Ellie looked at me took my hand and dragged me all the way to her new car. "Saph sit." She demanded. I glared at her and opened the car door and sat down. "Bitch.." I muttered, she glares at me but enters the car and gets the car ready. Ellie was really dramatic of everything and always wanted to make a scene, whilist me i hated being in the spotlight and always just stood around like a small outcast i was. During the car ride I remember little, but there was one thing that felt different. "Did you hear?" She said quietly and focusing on the road. "Heard what?" I replied while getting out my phone. Ellie quickly glanced at me and then sighed further then saying, "The massacre in the gay nightclub". I suddenly froze and just sat there trying to process the words she just said. Ellie looked at me, confused "Saph are you okay?" She asked concerned. "Oh, uhm yes sorry i was just thinking about the poor people.." I said in a not-so-convincing way. Once we arrived at the coffee shop we were greeted by Ellie's older brother, Tyler. "Hey lil sis! Sapphire.." Ellie smiled at him, and i guess i smiled slightly. "Uh.. What would you guys like?" He further then asked. Ellie ordered a creme brulé frappe, while i ordered a artistic latte (so hipster, i know). We then sat down near a window disscussing school and how life has been, trying to avoid talking about my mother's death. "So how is University?" She asked drinking out of her straw. "Its okay.. And stressfulllllllll!!!!" I groaned Ellie giggled and we continued to talk. Ellie's brother, Tyler came to the table supervising us like the big over-protective brother he is. And to cut to the chase, they started arguing. "My boyfriend has none of your concern Tyler!" Ellie yelled as she took my hand and dragged me to her car. "Tsk.. Boyfriend.." I muttered quietly trying to make sure she didnt hear me. She glanced at me and continued to drive to my University. "Uh.. Sorry about that argument Saph.. You know.. Tyler being so over-protective and a new boyfriend.." She apoligized as we began to get closer to the university. "Ellie.. Its okay, i'm your best friend you dont need to apoligized" i replied as she slowed down the car. Ellie parked the car and we talked about her boyfriend while walking to my dorm. "So whats his name?" I asked looking down at my feet. "His name Dustin and we met in class a few months ago," she replied smiling. For some reason i felt something pierce my chest. "Oh and we should all meet up at the movies on Saturday! It'll be great!" She revealed. Oh no.. Another one of these where i have to watch Ellie and her boyfriend act all lovey-dovey infront of me and after i leave they have sex! It would probably be a good idea to come though and see how this guy acts. "Yeah sure!" I replied. I smiled as i saw her tell me all about her new boyfriend. Something about seeing her so happy brought joy to me.. And then it came crashing down.
