Extracts from this document...

Introduction

The battle of two halves The wind whistled in my ears as I sat on the windowsill. Tears ran down my cheeks. I couldn't believe what I had been told. I was in shock. I couldn't believe it. I wouldn't believe it. My heart felt like an iron weight; it felt like it had sunk down beside my stomach. So much information in so little time; my brain was overflowing. The pressure was high, yet my hopes were low. Life felt worthless. My sheer existence felt meaningless, as though someone had drilled a giant hole in it. Were Jonathan and Emma finally dusted? It killed me to imagine it, let alone think of it. They were taken away from me mercilessly. He meant the world to me. Emma, the best friend I could ever ask for left me. The news wouldn't sink in. Maybe I was imagining it ... The 5th of September 1986. A new guy joined my class. Jonathan Cohen. My first ever crush.

"Ever since we first met," I began after cleaning my thought, "I've always treasured you as a special person," I said slowly. I felt suffocated. "Like wise" he commented naturally. My heart missed a beat. I couldn't help smiling continuously. "I love you Jonathan" I said confidently. I took a deep breath. I had finally done it; I was so pleased with myself. I couldn't help but smile wider, my teeth were now bare. Jonathan chuckled. 'Wow,' I thought, he must really be embarrassed. This is a good sign. "Sorry Sara, but I think you miss understood me. I like you as a friend only. I feel the way you feel towards me for Emma, your best friend. She's the one I'm going out with. ...read more.
