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.


26. Final Goodbye

Friday 21st December

Sorry. I haven’t really been keeping you up to date. It’s not my fault. I’ve been busy, you know… Homework, catching up with Rose – dating Aiden! The usual…

Oh my god, I am in love with Aiden. Today was the last day of term. At the end of the school day he grabbed my hand and we ran to the abandoned field where no one ever went. He apologized in advance for the fact that what he was about to do was OTT, but also that he couldn’t stop himself. We hid in the trees and when Aiden was sure no one could see or hear, he started to sing ‘All I want for Christmas is You’ by Mariah Carey. He really made my day, I couldn’t help but smile. So it was OTT, but it was romantic. And he was such a great singer, too! When it was over, a came closer to him and kissed him.

“Have a great Christmas, Esme.” He whispered in his soft, velvet voice – rather like Edward Cullen… No, he may be beautiful but he is definitely NOT a vampire!

“I will. Love you!” I replied.

“Love you too. I’ll see you in the New Year. I'll miss you lots...I'll be thinking about you! I'll call. Bye!” He blew me a kiss and strolled off in a different direction.

"Oh, I'll be waiting! See ya!" I might as well have been skipping home, I was so happy.

I am kind of disappointed that I don't have to go to school anymore - where else can I see my perfect boyfriend every day, and for almost every hour of that day? Nowhere.

I sat by that phone for nearly two hours until it finally rang. I was alert, I picked it up before it had been ringing for a second.

"Hey, that was quick!" It was Aiden, of course.

"Was it? I mean, it's not like I've been sitting by the phone waiting for it to ring..." That sounded desperate. What is my problem?

Our conversation lasted a while, but then Aunt Mira kicked me off. She wanted to book some hobbies for Mollie - Archery, Horse-riding, Pottery, Gymnastics and Street Dance. Poor Mollie, it must be hard to live like that.
