next to my favorite tree at the garden. I saw men and women holding hands, and the beautiful pond shimmering, looking like it was sparkling just for me. That garden was like heaven on earth. So blissful and gorgeous. How could anything go wrong there? I slowly realized that I was with Jax, my best friend since pre-nursery. Me and Jax were like two peas in a pod, and we did everything together. We danced together at the same studio since we were three years old. He had brown, wavy hair, olive skin and seafoam eyes. I always told him how amazing his eyes were, and how I didn’t know anyone else who had eyes like his. There was nothing and no one that could separate Jax and I. It was always “Jax and Celina.” Well, until eighth grade when things started to change between us. I think it was because I won a scholarship to a year-round dance program at a prestigious dance competition that we both applied to, and he didn’t. He acted a bit delusional thinking he should’ve gotten a scholarship, but I usually just say nothing whenever he talks about it. As my memory slowly started to come back to me I remembered that someone started banging my head into the tree I was sitting under! I was so shocked when this came to my memory. But… who was it? I had to figure this out. I stayed up for nearly six hours and got almost no sleep. It seemed like I just couldn’t stop thinking about the situation. I laid awake in my bed for hours, until 3:00 am replaying the scarring memory in my head over and over again. Suddenly I remembered the face of the person who did this horrible thing. It was a boy. Right after he got done with his little spree, he bolted out of the scene. He looked like every other boy I knew. Except for one little feature that made him different than the rest. Seafoam eyes.
