What You See... Is What You Get

Mckenzie was just your normal average teenage girl until everything went wrong.
She lost everything she ever cared about exceot from her little sister, Blue, and her memories. The memories she has sworn never to forget...

Mckenzie lay awake in her cold, dark room. Her head turning every few seconds to look at the old dusty digital clock on her bedside table, hoping that tomorrow would be a better day.

As the night rolled on and Mckenzie continued to lay awake, she started to hum the only tune that she can remember from her old life. The life that got taken away from her so suddenly. The life filled with happiness and love. The life she had sworn never to forget...

Dear Diary,

Hopefully today will be a better day than yesterday.

Miss Harp has said that me and Blue can go and visit our family today if we want to. I want to buy them some beautiful red tulips. Red tulips are my mums favourite floawers. She once told me that they symbolize undying love!

Anyway, I think I should go wake Blue up and tell her whats happening today.

Lots of undying love,



Mckenzie slowly shut her diary and carefully placed it in the top drawer of her bedside table. Making sure that she locks it.

Knock, knock! Mckenzie's head shot up, her eyes locking on her bedroom door, wondering who it could be.

"Who-who is it?"stuttered Mckenzie.

No answer.

"Who-whoever you are j-just leave me alone. I-i will be out in a few minutes," Mckenzie said.

Mckenzie sat and listened to see if she could hear any footsteps drifting away from her door, but all she could hear was her own heavy breathing. After a few minutes of sitting in silence, Mckenzie slwly stood up and started to make her way to the door.

Gently placing her pale hand on the doorknob, she started to slowly open her door. Peeking out of the crack that she had made by opening it, and when she saw that no one was there she opened the door the rest of the way. But before she stepped out of her room she checked the corridor making sure that no- one was lingering. When she saw that there was no one there either she made her way down the stairs leaving her door wide open.

Bang! Her head shot round looking back up the stairs to her bedroom door and thats when she saw him. Or it. She knew that she must be seeing things so she rubbed her eyes and pinched herself to make sure that she wasn't dreaming. She looked back up the stairs and saw that he was still standing there.

"Ahhhhhhh," Mckenzie's scream rattled through the house, making Miss Harp and Blue come running to the bottom of the stairs only to find Mckenzie laying at the bottom of them. Lifeless...

The End
