Before you start reading, this is my first time working on a novel. This is based on a true story that happened in my life……. Except from the time travel you’ll be reading. Thanks and Enjoy!
Chapter 1: The Beginning
I can’t believe what is going on right now… there really is no turning back now, huh. Why did I got myself in this situation? What did I do wrong to deserve this? I’m really going to die…….. I think I should start from the very beginning…. Of my story.
As a 8th grader, I follow the same schedule. I wake up, get dressed, eat breakfast, brush my teeth and go to the bus to school. You think my life is something original as any other story of a student, but what I think it’s different than others. All my life I thought that there’s no need for a person like me to be here. A loner… of course, I haven’t been always like this. Back then I was a really happy kid. Always cheerful and saying “ I love my life. Having a great family and LOTS of friends is the best!” I should have thought that my life had too much happiness to begin with. I know that I can’t think too much and I should live my life and try to make new friends. If only I have the courage to do so.
I know that there is one thing that makes me happy. My crush. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. Being a loner and you have a crush on someone? It’s no stranger if you’re thinking that way. It’s a old friend of mine. He makes me happy. Even though I don’t really talk to him…. I can’t help it, I’m too shyyyy! All I want is to create a bond with them... even if I know I won’t be confessing any time sooner. I mean, I’ve tried several times to talk to him but all I do is the SAME DAMN THING! *clears throat* Sorry for my language…. Anyways, all I want is to have my old self again so that i dont feel this way anymore… but I know for a fact that even if I want to be myself again, something is making me pull away that makes me not change back even how much I’ve tried.
Of course there is a reason why I’ve felt this way and I’m feeling empty because of that day…. That one day that changed my whole life……. It was a afternoon. I was 6 and all I was doing is playing video games on my Nintendo ds. Then my mom came into my room.
” ? Mommy?” I said confused.
“ Ali, can I talk to you for a minute?” she sounded serious.
And yes my name is Ali, Ali Henders if you’re wondering.
“o-okay!” I said in my cheerful voice.
“I-I don’t know how to say this to you but…. Your nephew, Jayden? H-He passed….. away” she said.
” !!! ” . I didn’t knew what kind of feeling I was having back then but I know it was a feeling I didn’t like at all.
I was a kid back then so I didn’t understand but I knew it did impacted me after that day. We went to the funeral a few days after and I didn’t have a single drip of a tear. I was very confused but now I know what happened but I have a feeling he is still alive, but I guess only in our hearts…..
I’m home from school and right now I am sitting on my bed, still thinking of him. Jayden. I didn’t really notice where I was looking at but I realized I was staring at the TV. For a second I’ve felt I was floating and thought my mind was playing tricks on me , but i did felt a bit dizzy. I lost focus and got up. I headed towards the exit of my room but before that, I glanced at my mirror and for a second there I thought I saw my 6 year old self. I thought it was a dream so I pinched myself…..I closed my eyes then open them and I was still seeing a 1st grader that happens to be me!
