His name rang through my ears and stuck in my brain, just like the lyrics to your favourite song.
Evan, the voice whispered again, making me cringe in my seat. It’s as if it had its own heart beat
and the beating got louder and louder. Evan, Evan, Evan. I closed my eyes and turned up the
music on my headphones, hoping it’d block out the sound. As it continued, the once whispered voice quickly became a shrilled scream. Evan, Evan, Evan, EVAN! “NO!” I screamed, burring my face into my palms. This couldn’t be happening to me. It felt as if in that few seconds, that my world had came crashing to the ground. The walls felt like they were closing in on me and I had no escape. I tried to imagine being somewhere else, but it was no use. I tried to imagine being somewhere else, but it was no use. His memory invaded me.
“You know what’d be awesome?”
“What?” I said with a smile. Evan traced the outline of my hand with his fingers. They felt so light and gentle. With him, it was like nothing could go wrong.
“Going to Alaska,” he responded.
“Going to Alaska, huh?” I echoed him in a mocking tone. “Why Alaska? What’s so special about it?”
“Well, not only is there a ton of snow, but there’s the polar bears too and penguins.”
“You don’t say?” I said with a smirk.
Evan laughed his charming laugh. It sounded like music. After a moment, he stopped tracing my hand and looked up at me. His expression went from joking around to completely serious. “I’d love to see the Northern Lights. Do you know how ... amazing it’d be? It’s definitely a once in a lifetime thing.”
We sat in silence for a while as I studied his face. Now, his voice was soft and whispered. “And to experience it with you, would make it all the better.” I smiled at his words as he leaned in.
Evan wasn’t just any boy. When I first met Evan, I was convinced he was the love of my life and I still believe the same thing today. There was something about him, there issomething about him ... I swear. I don’t know what it is, or how it came to be, but it makes me go absolutely crazy, every time I think of his sea blue eyes or shaggy brown hair. You see, they say you only fall completely in love, once in your life. I don’t buy it. With Evan, I fell in love over and over again, with every passing second, minute, day and year. Whither he was with me or not.
should I continue?
