Alone: Part Two

  • Alone

Here is the second part of my short story Alone. I hope you enjoy it!

The sun is beginning to set, and still, the only sound is the whispering wind and all I can see is grass.

I keep trying to remember how I got here, but I can't remember anything at all. But one mental image keeps coming back. A boy, around fifteen, with black hair like mine. He could be a friend, a cousin or a brother.

He could be a total stranger.

Stars appear, much brighter than I remember. I'm suddenly exhausted. I sit down, flattening the grass beneath me. I pull three long strands from the ground and plait them quickly into a long, thin rope, adding new strands every now and then. I wrap it round my wrist three times and tie the ends in a knot as a bracelet. I rest my head on my arms.

The tears are still streaming down my cheeks. I don't even know my own name!

More importantly, who is that boy? And why does thinking of him make me so sad?

Part three will be here soon!
