Writing on the Wall

My name is Lyra. I am 17. I don't remember my family, my friends or the boy I once loved. I only know one thing. I am dead.


9. Forever

I hear voices shouting and people rushing about. Something bad has happened. Oh no.
I rush to the window of the front room. There is a crowd of people surrounding a car. The car is damaged at the front as if it hit something with full impact.
Please no.
"Callum!" I cry racing out of the house. The crowd turns to face me then seperates letting me past. I say "Thank you." but they don't answer. They look right through me. I see a body lying on the road in front of the car. There is something lying smashed beside him. It looks like a photoframe. I see a paramedic beside him checking his breathing. He looks at the crowd and shakes his head.
"Callum!" I cry throwing myself down beside him, "Callum! Please don't die. Please, don't leave me! Please! Callum!"
The crowd starts to disperse.
"Help me!" I yell after them, "Help please!"
They either ignore me or can't hear me because they continue to walk away.
I cry over him and kiss him. My chest hurts as though my heart is ripping itself apart. I pick up the smashed photoframe lying beside him. I realise this must be his most prized possession. I stare at the photo beneath the smashed glass. It a photo of Callum and me. I suddenly remember everything.
"Callum. I love you so much. Please don't  leave me."
I feel a hand on my shoulder and a voice says, "Lyra. It's okay. Everything's going to be okay."
"How can you say that!" I can't hold back the tears, "I can't lose him."
"Turn around."
I slowly turn. Reluctant to look away from Callum.
A boy of about my age stands before me. His skin is pale and his hair is dark brown. He smiles, "I love you too, Lyra."
I fling my arms round him and kiss him over and over again.
"I will never leave you. Not ever." Callum whispers gently.
"Together forever." I whisper back.
Taking my hand in his we turn away from the world we are leaving and walk into the sky.
