Today is the day. I was finally going to do it. Finally relive myself of the tremendous suffering and hardship. I clenched my fists, gazing blankly at the countless scars littering my wrists. A form of relief that was only temporary and fleeting. The fluctuating call of the school bell pulled me from my slumber, yanking my bag onto my shoulders and racing to the bus stop. The world was starting to fade back to grey, trees hug limply and leaves turned a darkest grey hue. I pushed my head-phones into my ears, providing a brief relief of colour. Music began to play and my failures were soon forgotten as the tempo filled my head. The harmony soared then crashed, a beauty unable to be felt by anything else.
“Liv?” a voice yelled, yanking me back into the horrors of reality. There she stood. The most amazing girl I had ever seen. Her sunflower hair tumbled down her shoulders, freckles lined her sharp cheekbones and her smile brought colours I have never seen before.
“Isla. What are you doing here?” My palms were sweating and heart thumping erratically to the faint pulse of my music. Her hair glimmered in the sun and her perfect form stood just next to me.
“You have any plans later?” Isla asked, rocking slightly from side to side.
“No, not today.” Our hands touched and I shivered, shocked with the large level of comfort I found within a single touch.
“Your place it is then.” She beamed, cheeks flushed and punched me lightly on the arm before skipping away. I watched with a dazed grin plastered onto my face. My very first smile in a long time.
Today marks the day colour came back into my life. Today is the day I changed for the better as the sky shone blue and the grass glittered green. Today is the day I accepted myself for who I really am, surrounded by thousands upon thousands of colours. Today is the day.
Heyo! This is the end of my editing challenge. I hope you all enjoyed it. Have a nice day 😊
