1996


Cara Jade had spent her entire summer conjuring a story of interest and turning herself into the ultimate girl. Soon she would be attending her new school and everyone wanted to know the new girl.
.
Covered in cotton with barely space to see, she had no life, no story.
.
Then she rememeber the popular girls takes, spoken under grey clouds. Cigarettes hanging from some lips as the others laughed really loud.
.
Soon they were her stories of wonder and expeditions as she had gathered the pieces from memory and made her own.
.
Walking through the doors all fresh and new she scoped out the cliques and the popular crews.
.
Standing amongst the new crowd she relayed her stories convincingly  as they hung on every word.
.
They were all fascinated by the little whore.
.
In bed that night Cara slept triumphant she would rise to popularity. Only, the morning after she was faced with a silent solidarity. The picture she painted had tainted their veiw.
.
How was they to know she had never been further than the bus stop and school?
.
How was they to know she was full of niaviety?
.
Although, shaded and shun she held her head high, saving her tears for the night.
.
It would be years before she realised the story she had conjured had ruined her life.
.
WORDS ARE POWERFUL BE CAREFUL OF THE THINGS YOU MANIFEST INTO YOUR LIVES AND OTHERS…
.
BE YOURSELF EVERYONE ELSE IS TAKEN…..
.
.
IN MEMORY OF 1996…
