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.


30. Merry Christmas to all, and to all good night!


Tuesday 25th December

Merry Christmas! I still can’t believe that we had a white Christmas. I was much more excited by the thick bed of snow outside than by the gigantic pile of presents by my bed. I got everything I wanted, but I’m not boasting about it like Mollie is. She’s a sweet girl really, but she has a tendency to boast. Mollie boasts an awful lot. Mainly to me, but she does it to her friends as well. It’s not like Mollie even realises. Her friends give sideways glances at each other and roll their eyes whenever Mollie talks about her birthday or Christmas presents, or her Easter eggs, or when she wins prizes. I see it, usually, and it makes me giggle.


I got my twilight books, so after I was done with rolling about in the snow and chucking snowballs at Mollie, I got stuck in. I enjoy reading. Maybe that’s why I like writing so much. Words just come so naturally when I whip my pen out. Some things are very dull, whilst other things I write turn out okay. I’m trying to be modest, here. But I do want to fulfil my goals and ambitions, the song writing thing is behind me, far behind me in the past, and I am going to be a children’s writer.


I really am getting into the Christmas spirit, now. Aunt Mira spent most of the day cooking and baking – she made the Christmas dinner all by herself. Well, Mollie and I gave our assistance when necessary, but Aunt Mira definitely did the majority herself. When dinner/lunch (whatever!) was over, she made her own mince pies and Christmas pudding!


The day was great. I got texts from Keira (fantastic. NOT), Rose and Aiden (yay!) saying thanks for their presents. Aiden’s was particularly long. He must have used about three texts in one go! It was very romantic. He said that he’d stuck one more picture in already – the one of us together in the cinema.


I’ve actually quite enjoyed today, I didn’t expect that I would. I had fun, reading twilight by the Christmas tree, watching th4 Doctor Who Christmas special! I reread Aiden’s text several times - Maybe a dozen, maybe more. I’m a little bit disappointed that it’s all over, but it’s only three hundred and sixty four days until next year’s Christmas day, the most wonderful day of the year!

But for now – Merry Christmas to all, and to all good night!
