Life Is A Flame

Life Is A Flame- *One Mistake and it Flickers Out*

“Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.”
-Dr. Suess


1. The Flame

Dr. Suess once said that you control your future. But that's not up to me anymore. I have no future.


April 16th, 2012. I was 15 years old. My name is Karrie Lithium. My best friend was Melissa Carden. It was a mistake- a flicker- that snuffed out the flame. MY flame.


I had a problem to begin with, anyway. I cut myself, for multiple reasons. I liked Victor Zeds, but he didn't like me back. My parents died in the same car crash my grandparents died in, and I have no aunts or uncles. My mom and dad had no siblings. I was their only child, the last in our bloodline. But I had no children to carry out our legacy.


Nothing is ever as it seems, and as they say, looks can be decieving.


My nickname was the Flame; I had anger issues and red hair, and when I was mad, my whole face turned red. Sometimes my eyes would even glow. Melissa was the Flicker; she was a platinum blonde with blue eyes and pale skin. She could stop a war before it started and calm the ocean in a storm. She was the flicker that put out the flame. It was a gift, not ment to do any harm. But things don't always go as planned.


My life sucked, if you want to put it that way. It didn't really make a difference to anybody if I showed or not, because to everybody, I was nobody. And to everybody, I was already dead. They didn't know how soon that thought would come to truth.


April 16th, 2012. I was only 15 years old.
