The Life and Lies of Me

My name is Esme. Ever since my parents died in a car crash, my sister is the closest person I've got...even though she hates me. Love is in the air for a while. A diary is the best part of my life right now. It's amazing what just letting go of your emotions really does to you.
I live with my Aunt Mira who has a grudge against me, godness knows why. After stealing her diary, I can find out my aunt's secrets too. I miss my old friend, but will a new boyfriend make things better... and will the love last? I just want to know the secrets of the past, and the secrets of my mum and my aunt - the twins that never got on.

With secrets, lies and the twists and turns of life, Esme will discover the mysteries that you don't even find in stories.


18. A changed girl

Wednesday 27th November

Today was quite enjoyable. At the Ice Rink, Ashleigh-Rose and I had a great time. I was just a beginner, I could skate but never in the world would I be able to do the fancy jumps and turns like Ashleigh-Rose. She really was beautiful. I don’t think she realized it, but all eyes were on her. She twirled in the air, leaped, and then bent down so she was crouching. She spun really fast , sticking her other leg out. It was quite breathtaking. And she wasn’t even showing off. It was all natural. Ashleigh-Rose looked a bit mortified after she had finished showing me her array of skills.

Ice skating really brought Ashleigh –Rose out of her shell. Long gone is the girl that is stubborn and shy and rude. Just coaxing her out of her shell shows me Ashleigh-Rose’s true personality – kind, funny, outgoing, reliable… the list is endless. In fact, now that I had got to know her, Ashleigh-Rose kind of reminds me of… Keira. Maybe I can finally get over her. Now I know what she enjoys, we can be best friends, stuff Keira! I was always told to make new friends by my primary school teacher, Miss Young. She was my favourite teacher. Miss Young always had faith in me, and I was a bit of a teacher’s pet back then. I absolutely positively hate that now. Teacher’s pets annoy me to hell. Guess it’s a good thing that I don’t like any teachers at Lakelands High. They are all so hypocritical and none of them can sympathise or act with any kind of etiquette for kids.

 “What other things do you enjoy?” I asked Ashleigh–Rose.

“Well, I really like being daring!” She replied. I suggested horse-riding (I am good at that) as that was kind of daring. She seemed excited so we made a date. We’re going on Friday after school, that’s the 29th November. Ashleigh –Rose is really looking forward to it. I can just tell, from the way she acts. Well, so am I! I can’t wait, it will be just awesome!
