12 days of christmas.

My short story for the love competition :) <3 x

Sam hates the one holiday everyone should love! Chrismas is about holiday cheer and spending some time with the family but something in her life changed all of that. She recieves something that she sees as a gift and could change her views on christmas, forever!


13. Losing a friend.

“What’s wrong with you?” I laugh, then she looks up, coffee in one hand and her other hand clenched, tears streaming down her face just like a river, I stop laughing and sit opposite her. “He has left me, Alan, says he found someone else when I was in New York.” “Well he’s obviously an idiot then.” “What?” “He left you for someone else, well, he isn’t the right one is he?” “You are joking!” “Helen, I'm just...” “Save it Sam,” Helen stand up grabbing her coat, “you would never know, you don’t have someone special!” “I do actually!” “Who Sam, who could love someone who hangs onto their past?” “David!” “Ha... doubt it, your sister is dead, get over it.” Helen storms out, while everyone is watching the scene. “What!” I scream while following Helen but departing in our opposite ways. I sit in my apartment, lonely and scared, Mac wonders over and places his head on my knee, I tap the sofa and he jumps up. We both sleep until the next morning. I suddenly sit up, Mac is asleep by the balcony door and the clock says half 9. I had a nightmare, the moments when my mum was killed. I sit up and walk towards my balcony door, it only then when I realise it is Christmas Eve and now I was dreading the next day even more than before. Not only have I lost my sister, but my mum and best friend. I slowly get dressed from my clothes I wore yesterday and feed Mac. I then slouched on the sofa, picked up the remote but did not dare turn it on as I knew what would be all over the news, I put the remote back down and sit out on the balcony. I close my eyes, feel the breeze push through my hair and stop thinking for a moment, just stop and loosen up. I did nothing all day, just sat out on my little balcony watching society rushing underneath me. “This must be what it is like for mum and Maria, Mac, apart from the fact they have people to love them and I don’t. Apart from you,” Mac got up and walks away whimpering as he does, “or not, humph.” I went to bed, nothing more happened that day, Mac stayed curled up away from me and no one called, not even David, it was like I was cut off from the world and the world was cut off from me!
