Lissy's Patchwork Life

Liss has everything she wants- three brilliant friends, loving parents, a boyfriend, and school is going well. She has a patchwork quilt on her bed. It is her favourite thing in the world. But one day, her quilt breaks. Torn in pieces. Which is what happens to Liss's life when her best friend's boyfriend tries to kiss her. And afterwards, he posts it to Facebook, turning it round so that it sounds like SHE came onto HIM. And so, her boyfriend Jake, dumps her and so do all her friends. She cracks under the added pressure of GCSE's. Her life, like her quilt, is falling apart.


1. Love

 "Happy birthday, honey." Jake's arms were wrapped loosely around my shoulders, his sweet breath tickling my jaw where he had just planted a loving kiss. He pressed a tiny package into my right hand and gently closed my fingers around it. It felt smooth and warm, like velvet. I turned around, a radiant smile on my lips. My eyes caressed every aspect of his beautiful face, his cute ginger hair which Lola always made fun of, but I really adored. I lowered my gaze to his gorgeous brown eyes. For a moment, it was intense, with him looking into my big blue eyes with his amazing chocolate coloured ones. I decided to say something before we both forgot what he had opened with.

 "I couldn't be happier," I assured him.

 Jake smiled sheepishly. "Really?"

 "Of course not! Now let me open this little box before I die of the suspense!!" I laughed, tossing my long curly hair over my shoulder. Jake's mouth looked like it would split, he was smiling so widely. Is that a sign I should be afraid of what is in the box? He knows how much I hate locusts... Thank you for that, prefrontal cortex. Me and my limbic system were perfectly fine until you joined in. Just open the box. So I did, and it was not a locust. It was a crystal bracelet. There were little stars hanging from it with tiny crystals in it. The sunlight caught in the sparkly bits and almost blinded me. But that was okay because I was already blinded by love. I looked up at my amazing boyfriend, with an expression of wonder. Or at least that is what I like to think if it as. Other people would call it 'gawping'. I tried to control my facial expression before pulling his head closer to mine. I closed my eyes and whispered "Thank you, Jake. I love you."
