29. 9th February 2014


A lot had happened in the past five months, but in a way not that much at all. I had been training harder than I ever had before, and seemed in really good shape for the marathon in three weeks time. Every single day I thought about Amaya, and the reason I am doing this is for her. That goal seemed to be a lot more influential. Since the funeral, the only people I could really say that helped me through the morning were Nico and Bruno. The former was always, always there and never ever left my side. He was the kind of friend you could only dream off. Together, we became stronger and although we will never forget about Amaya we valued life a lot more.

Amaya’s death opened Nico’s mind and made his realise that love doesn’t wait around for ever and that life passes by so quickly. He knew that he wanted to be with his girlfriend for the rest of his life so he proposed. Honey said yes! They aren’t getting married anytime soon but will move in with each other when they both go to university.

The thing between Bruno and me? Well now that is my best kept secret. Nobody knows about us and we can’t tell anyone ever. I have never been happier with anyone else though, and even though it is incredibly hard he is going to wait for me. That could be almost five years until I have finished all of my education including college and university. But he seems happy to wait. I can’t tell anyone about him because I know he will get sent to jail if I do. Almost everyone I know would turn away in disgust if they ever found out that we actually truly loved each other despite all the problems that lay in our path. I know nobody will understand what I feel about him and that sometimes really depresses me. It is extremely hard to keep it a secret but I manage.

I have some more good news. Aunt Emma is pregnant again! And although they are terrified that something bad might happen again, I think they are hopeful and excited. I am really delighted for them and apparently the baby is a set of boy twins. Wow. I think they are going to be Christmas babies too.

All my exams have been and gone and fingers crossed I did well. We are getting our results back in march and this will determine whether I can get into this Sports College or not. Our parents found out about Nyx and Cole. I think, though, because of everything that had happened to our family that they decided to accept their relationship.

So you could say everything is going well, and my life has never really been better. But everyone knows life doesn’t work like that.

Today I went out into town with my sister a Cole. We decided to watch a film and by the time we came out of the cinema it was already ten o’clock. We knew we wouldn’t be able to catch a bus back to our home so we began to walk towards Cole’s house. The night was cold and dark with no stars in the sky and I couldn’t see even a glimmer of the silver moon.

Wind delicately whacked us as we walked and soon we were cornered in a clammy alley. A loud livid voice overwhelmed me at once and before I knew it I was pushed to the ground. This huge man seemed to shouting things at Cole as if he knew him and began hurling abuse at him. How did he know him? What the hell was happening?

It all seemed too surreal and horrifying, one minute we were walking and the next we were being attacked. I think my heart stopped and then climbed into my mouth and died when I heard what he was saying though. He kept repeating this question over and over again “Your girlfriend or her sister?” I knew then that I wasn’t coming out of this attack alive…
