A Million And One Things
Lilly’s POV

 
 
I walked along the narrow boardwalk towards the ocean. The wind blew my long brown hair across my face. 6 Whole weeks alone. Grandma, Grandpa, and me for six whole weeks. My life was inching towards a living hell. My friends were probably living it up back at home in NYC, with their boyfriends, and the city full of summer fashions that I got to miss out on. The most fun I would have on this ‘vacation’ would be reading a book on the beach, or finally catching a big wave on my surf board.  
  I brushed the hair out of my face, my mascara down my face, what was wrong with me? I was crying? Its not like I missed my parents that sent me off to this that much, they were having more fun on their 16th year, 6 week anniversary in Las Vegas. I should have been able to stay with Grace,  Elle, or maybe even Bridget, but no, I was sent to a 6 week stay in Maine with gram and gramps.  
"Lil” 
“yeah gram?” I said turning around to face her 
“oh dear. Have you been crying?” she asked reaching for my un tanned face.  
“no salt water really does a job to my eyes!” I laughed 
"good,good!”she said back. Stroking her hand against my flowing hair. “Come inside darling, I'm starting dinner." 
"In a minute, I'm just going to take a quick walk along the beach, to find some new shells." 
"okay sweetie, no swimming, without me or gramp around."  
"okay" i waved, starting my journey along the beach.  
 
My toes sunk into the wet sand, the beach was almost empty as it neared 5 o'clock.A few surfers slid along the waves, the sun hung low in the sky, my favorite time of day. i sat down on the dry white sand, and just closed my eyes and listened to the waves. 
"woosh, woo-" 
"WATCH OUT!" 
i opened my eyes to see a wave coming towards me, a surfer screaming on top of it. i tried to dodge the huge wave, it was impossible. the tip of the yellow board knocked my head, i fell into the watery mess of sand and sea salt, and everything went black. 
"wake up, wake up" a wet hand touched my face. i opened my eyes slowly and looked around, blood was everywhere." i killed you, i bet this is like heaven and i bet your dead" the boy said, still holding my head. 
"I'm fine, really, i am." i said wiping the blood off the large cut on my forehead. 
"i owe you a million and one things." he whispered in my ear. 
"hmm... i could think of plenty of things you could do for me i mean you hit me with the bored" i laughed 
"no, I'm really sorry, so so so sorry." he said with a glimmer of a tear in his eyes. 
"oh shut up! I've gotten hurt worse" i hugged the stranger that i didn't even know, i just knew he was in desperate need of a hug. 
"I'm, I'm, Jay" he said, embracing me even more. this stranger, jay, seemed like he had known me for years. 
"I'm Lilly" i smiled, pulling him away, slowly.  
"let me take you home, live around here?" 
"I'm, staying at my grandparents for a while, 13 Beach side road, up that way" i pointed. 
"why hello neighbor" he grabbed my hand pulling me up to walk me home, this summer couldn't be ALL that bad...

hey so you asked me for your feedback so im gonna give you my honest feedback; overall really good start and story line going on &youre a good writer! but make sure you add the chapter or part. also for future reference... when youre starting a story dont do a lot of background info in the first paragraph or so your first goal is to catch the readers attention then after theyre interested give them the back story. &yeah but overall it was really good:) keep writing!
