1. I wish you were still here with me.


”Everything has become so quiet since you left us. I wish I could say that everything has gone back to normal like it used to be, when you were still here. But everything is so different. So quiet. I no longer have the strength to cope with anything when you’re not here with me. I just wish you were still here with me.”

I looked at my clock only to realize it was already 08.10. ‘Shit, I’m going to be late.’ I thought to myself when I quickly put my jacket on. I was just about to go out the front door when my cellphone vibrated, the textmessage was from Abigail, my best friend since kindergarden,
“Where are you?” 
I answered quickly while I locked the front door and went with quick steps to the garage where my mum was sat in the car waiting for me.
“I’m on my way, just sat down in the car. I’ll be there in 5 minutes, maximum. See you soon.”
My phone vibrated seconds later with an answer that just read “Okay”.
Usually it took about 5 minutes to get to my school from where I live, but today it only took 2 minutes. Probably because I was late for school, which ment that my mum also were late for work. And her boss would not be to happy about that.

I walked with quick steps to the classroom and opened the door to see that everyones eyes were glued to the whiteboard.
“Great, a test. This day could not get any better.” I thought to myself while I went and sat down beside Abigail.
“Hey” Abigail whispered to me when I had sat down and placed my books on the table.
“Hi, which page are we on?” I whispered back to Abigail. “Page 113”

The schoolday went by faster than usual. And when the last class was over me and Abigail went to our locker to get our stuff before we had to run to the bus, which would arrive in 10 minutes.
“Hurry up Abigail!” I shouted while I stood there with all my belongings in my hands and ready to go to the bus.
“I’m coming” Abigail answered.
We hurried to the bus stop and right as we were about to pass the crosswalk a car came against us with no intenstions of hitting the breaks. So with my heart in my throat, I stood on the other side of the crosswalk, thanking god I was alive.
“Wow, that was close. Right Abigail?” I said, without getting any respons.
“Abigail?” I turned around. But my best friend was not there. She was gone. My best friend since kindergarden was gone forever.
I saw the car a couple of meters away. The car that did not stop, even though 2 people had walked over the crosswalked. 2 people went over, but only 1 made it.

This was exactly 2 months, 2 days and 7 hours ago.
2 months, 2 days and 7 hours since I saw my other half for the last time.

Her funeral was very quiet, everyone was and still is in such shock that Abigail just disappeared out of their lifes. Just like that.
The paramedics tried to revive her. But it didn’t work. She had hit her head to hard, so her brain was too damaged.

Everything is so quiet nowadays. Almost too quiet. I no longer have the strength to get back in touch with my other classmates. 
The only thing I have done the last 2 months is lying in my bed, crying myself to sleep.

I haven’t even tried getting back to school, because I know that everything will just remind of Abigail and that she is not coming back.
