Use Somebody

Bridgett Sailor- or Sailor as she now goes by- was in a car accident with her sister Mandy. While B survives, Mandy is killed. Music and Mandy's favorite song- Use Somebody- become Sailor's only link to her. For a weeks she thinks the only one she needs is Mandy, until she finds someone she didn't know she was looking for.

2. For Mandy

"B, come on, we're going to be late."

"I'm coming, mom." I inspected myself one last time in the mirror. It was the first time in a week that I made an effort to look nice, for Mandy. I bought my black dress with Mandy, for her party. I never had another occasion to wear it but, now I do. It felt weird wearing a dress I wore to her 18th birthday to her funeral. My hair was curled and pinned back to one side. I sniffled and tried to hold back the tears as I grabbed my heels and walked past her closed room and down the stairs.

The car ride to the church was eerily silent. Not having Mandy around in the car was like going to the movies and not getting candy or popcorn.. It just isn't right. A lot of people were there. Tears blurred my eyes and all the people just became black spots. I spotted mine and Mandy's friend Sabrina sitting in her car. I got out of mine, took a deep breath, and walked to Sabrina's car. I opened the passenger door and got in. We just sat there in silence until we burst in to tears and hugged each other. "I know, B, I know." We got out and headed in to the church.

I was told I would make a speech and quite frankly I didn't have anything prepared.

But I had an idea of what I would say.
