The White Opera

In a world that’s falling apart, Lillia Jane seeks to find the light. Dancing is her soul and passion, but it isn’t always the answer to her problems. She witnessed the murder of her best friend Sophie and won’t be forgetting the feeling of isolation any time soon. Lillia’s parents have moved to Queensland for the summer so now it’s just her and her older brother Brian, as they embark on an amazing adventure through Sydney Australia.


11. Insanity


I wake up on the bench that I passed out next to, “How long have I been out?” I ask embarrassed. There are about a dozen people standing around me, including Lucas, Sophie, Brian, Tia and some other Asians.

“15 minutes.” Lucas replies, “Are you okay? What happened?”

“I’m fine, nothing happened, I was just really tired.”

“Are you sure you’re okay?” I nod.

Sophie, Lucas’ ‘friend’ reaches out to help me up but I refuse to rely on someone else, she is the reason I am in this mess really. I can’t believe she can hold his hand and smile at me at the same time!

“That was a nasty fall.” Lucas adds, how come he has to be around me every time I fall? He must think I’m such a drama queen, I can’t help the state I am currently in! I know what I need to do, I don’t care if anyone thinks I’m crazy but I’m doing it!

I stand on my own two feet and walk towards a lake. I close my eyes, not wanting to see the bewildered look on everyone’s faces. I try not to think how strange it would be if I saw a girl collapse then stand back up and randomly start dancing. But I do it anyway. I remember not telling Lucas what my hobbies were yesterday, and now my secret is being revealed.

One foot in front of the other, carefully making sure I don’t have another fall. I count in my head, five, six, seven, eight, over and over again. I go wherever my feet decide to take me. I try and drift off to somewhere safe in my mind, somewhere where no one judges me, or stares at me like I am a complete nutter.

I wish the world would fall apart and leave me behind. I wish everyone would just go away and leave me to dance forever and ever without any interruptions.

I stop, because my feet begin to hurt, I didn’t do stretches before I started dancing either, so that doesn’t help my back. When I open my eyes, Lucas is smiling at me. I wish he would stop doing that, how can he be happy all of the time? He begins to clap loudly which I find bizarre, but then everyone who was crowded around me when I woke up started clapping as well. Every single person is smiling except me, I have been drained from emotion, my exhaustion gives in and I ask Brian to go home so I can just sleep in my bed.

We leave before Lucas has time to approach me again and talk. This is how I prefer it, sad and alone.
