Insignificant little Sophia

There are over 7,000 billion people on earth, amongst them lives a girl named Sophia. Sophia has questions which no one can answer. 'If you're dying, how can you still be living? And if someone is dead where do they go? Sophia is just nine years old and nobody takes her questions seriously, not her parents, her sister, or her teachers. Only one person really takes an interest in little Sophia, Norman Harford, the old man across the road. Norman and Sophia develop a friendship like no other, together delving into the deep, dark world that is death.


1. Thinking

Nobody understands. I wish I couldn't understand. But I do, that's why I have to do something about it.

It all started this morning. I woke up at 7:00am as usual, but instead of jumping out of bed and rushing to my window to say good morning to the nest of sparrows in the tree outside, I stayed in my messy bed just....thinking, about everything, it felt like my head would explode, and why, why is this happening? Why am I Sophia, why do we live life only to die helplessly at the end? Why does the sun rise in the morning and what are we meant for? I don't know, but I do know. Its like you walk all the way back from school one day thinking, I'll tell Mum the news about Mrs Foster leaving, (weird example) But when you arrive home you completely forget what you were going to say and it nags at you all the time until you eventually remember. I've felt like that for quite a while now and I have to have answers.
