Let me tell you a little about myself...
My name is Emily, I'm sixteen years old. I have long, curly, brown hair and piercing green eyes and oh yeah, I'm dead...
I've been in heaven for about an hour now and let me tell you its beautiful-but before i continue let me explain what happened...
Me and my best friend, Alison, were jumping for joy in the middle of the hall, she had just told me that she won One Direction tickets on the radio! We had been trying to get some for so long and we finally won them! Also that morning my parents surprised my sister and i, telling us that we were going on vacation, for the very first time!
Josh, my crush for like the longest time, came up to us. "Why are you two so happy?" He asked laughing.
"We won One Direction tickets!" Alison yelled jumping up and down. Usually this would embarrass me but i was too happy to care.
"Ew they suck." Josh said trying to hide a smile.
"They are the most beautiful and talented men in the world!" I yelled in mock shock.
"So if you had to choose to either go on a date with them or me, who would you pick?" He asked.
I was about to say 'One Direction, duh' when i realized what he had said. Alison must have as well because she said, "Are you trying to ask Emily out?"
"I'll answer your question when she answers mine." He said.
"Hmmm this is a hard one, some guy i go to school with or the hottest boy band ever...i guess it wouldn't hurt to choose you." I said trying to play it cool and not sound desperate.
"I'm going to pretend that, that didn't hurt, and how does friday night at seven work?" He said putting a hand over his heart.
"Perfect." I said with a huge smile.
Everything was just perfect.
It was a Thursday...my religion class was going on a retreat. Though we never actually made it there, on the highway a truck was changing lanes and didn't see our bus. I was in the middle of discussing my date with Josh to Alison and there was a jerky movement, a loud noise and then nothing...
I'll never be able to go on that date...
Now I'm in heaven, i keep feeling like i'll just wake up in the hospital or something, but it hasn't happened yet.
So far I've just been wondering, it really is nice here, the sky is a pale pink and the clouds look like cotton candy, they are so fluffy! It was very bright, but there was no sun and the grass was so green it almost looked fake.
"Emily!" I jumped startled i haven't seen anyone yet.
"Sorry to scare you, I'm Jake." he stuck out his hand and i shook it. He had curly blonde hair and green eyes and was about my height (I'm 5'4).
"Nice to meet you, how do you know my name?" I asked.
"I'm your guide, I'm hear to make sure you get settled in." He explained.
"So this isn't a dream?" I asked.
"Nope." He said.
Everything that happened hit me hard. I wasn't going to see my family or friends for years, i felt alone. I started to sob.
"Don't cry, i know you miss your loved ones but before you know it they will be here with you." Jake said rubbing my back.
"How about we go get some ice cream?" He suggested.
I looked up and wiped my eyes, "Theres ice cream in heaven?" I asked sniffing
"Of course, follow me."
So i followed him.
(At the I've cream shop)
We sat in a booth as i downed my vanilla sundae. We didn't even have to pay for it, there was no money in heaven!
I looked around the room at the other kids, they all had puffy red eyes.
"Is this were all the newbies come?" I asked.
Jake stopped slurping his chocolate milkshake and said, "Well yeah the ones who are upset."
"If you don't mind me asking, how did you end up in here?" He asked looking innocent.
"Car accident." I said tears filling my eyes.
"Sorry i asked, i was curious." He said looking guilty.
"Thats alright." I said smiling. "So, why are you here." I asked also curious.
