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.

3. Someone Like You

"Mandy was the girl you always wanted around in your life. She has that personality that everyone wanted: bubbly, energetic, nice, funny, and always there for you when you needed a friend. I don't think I ever saw her without a smile," I looked out in to the crowd and all the faces staring back at me. "Umm, Mandy always loved music. Her favorite song has become mine. It's become really relevant, and I hope it's gonna make you notice." I stepped down from the podium and sat down on the piano. I closed my eyes and began playing.

"I've been roaming around, always looking down at all I see.." I sang and imagined Mandy sitting right there next to me. All of a sudden, it was over and people were on their feet clapping. I snapped back to reality and realized where I was. I was at my sister's funeral. And the person I could use right now, was her. I stood up and walked out of the church, sitting down on the steps and cried. All of a sudden there was someone behind me.

"That was quite a speech. And performance. You have a beautiful voice and some serious talent." I looked up to see who was talking to me. A guy about my age, maybe a bit older, was smiling at me. Needless to say, he was attractive and I looked like a mess.

"Thanks. Who are you?"

"Trey. Trey Leon. Nice to meet you." He extended his arm and I shook it.

"I'm Sailor."


"Well Bridgett Sailor. But I can't stand hearing that name anymore. I hear it and I just hear Mandy's voice screaming it the night she died. So I'm just going by Sailor now."

"How did you know Mandy?"

"She was my sister. We were in a car accident. Drunk driver. Hit her side of the car and killed her. I just got a concussion and some pretty nasty cuts and bruises."

"Oh wow, I'm so sorry."

"Me too. Wait how did you know Mandy?"

"Just.. Around I guess."

"I've never seen you around before." I just stared at Trey.

"Alright I just moved here. My cousin was best friends with her. I think they dated at one point. But my parents sent me here last week after my brother died. It's so weird, we were also in a car accident."

"Wait is your cousin Tyler Allen?"


"B, lets go. It's time for the burial."

"Ok, mom." I got up to leave, then looked back at trey. "I'm sorry about your brother. It is really weird we both lost a sibling in a car accident." I went back to my parents and got in the car. On the way to the cemetery I kept thinking about Trey. How freaky alike we were. We were both in car accidents and both lost a sibling.

Maybe the person I needed wasn't Mandy. It was Trey.
