32. My Eyes are Red

Claire’s P.O.V.


I rubbed my eyes for the millionth time already, making my eyes look even more red than they already were. Caspar, Nikki’s older brother, was preparing his speech, his final goodbyes to my sister before she was lowered into the dark dirt. He ran a hand through his messy dark brown hair, the same color hair that i’ve become so attached to.

It was the same as a person i have become a older sister to, the same as a person i could share anything with, and it was the same person i first fell in love with. I watched a tear fall down his face as he talked, talked of all the greatness that Caroline had. I felt a tightening on my hand, looking over to see it was just my mother, trying to help ease the pain that we both were going through. I gave her a half hearted smile as i turned my attention to the thoughts of my passed sister.

I smiled at every single one of the people who gave their condolences to me. But inside i was angry, angry that they even dare say that because they have no idea. No idea how badly i miss her everyday, and all they can say is, “I’m sorry for your loss.” I wanted to punch every single one of them that didn’t mean it. That they didn’t care that she was gone. Didn’t care that no one would ever see her smile again.

“Claire... You doing alright?” A voice called to me. I turned in the direction of the voice, noticing now it was Sydney who asked. She was giving me a sad smile, along with Niall, Liam, and Nikki. Sydney walked forward to give me a hug, which i gladly accepted. I was looking over her shoulder from the hug and noticed a huge wet stain on Liam’s shirt, most likely the cause of Nikki. I gave a small smile as i un-twined myself from the hug, allowing myself to breath.

“Hey Claire. We’re heading over to the studio to go.. You know...” Liam trailed off as his rubbed his neck with his hand, “Pretty much hang-out and practice.” Niall butted in, rolling his eyes at Liam’s stupidity. “And Louis will be there.” Sydney chimed as she wiggled her eyebrows.The four nodded, looking at me, begging with their eyes for me to join them. I gave a small smile. Probably the only real smile i had given that day, “Alright...”
