Hey guys! I’ve made a OneWord account today. Its a site wherein you are given a word, and then you need to make something out of it in sixty seconds. I think it can help me improve my writing so, I gave it a try. The word for the day is dawn. I made a short story about it and I hope you guys like it!

I woke up earlier than I had expected. Its strange that I don’t feel sleepy anymore so I stood up, stretched, and sat at the floor. I looked up and saw our picture on the side of my bed. There we are, side by side, smiling, as if nothing really matters but our friendship. A tear fell down my cheek. Its been a month now, but I still can’t believe it. The one who makes me smile, the sunshine of my life. I was a fool for thinking that you were joking when you said you’re going to move out. Seriously. Go to the city and leave me? You wouldn’t do that to me. We’re friends for as long as I can remember. We walked the same path, drank from the same juice boxes, wore the same clothes, we were inseparable. No, you can’t just leave me.
But you did.
And you didn’t just move away.
You were completely gone.
A truck slammed into the car you were in.
Killing all the unfortunate souls inside it.
When I heard the news, I was devastated.
I cried hard that day. I was overwhelmed with grief.
I thought you’re just gonna move out, but no.
You left me, alone in this world.
What am I supposed to do now?

The dawn was breaking, and it brought a feeling of nostalgia.
I remember you, Dawn, running to my house in the fall.
“Happy Birthday Autumn!” you greeted me happily.
The freckles on your cheeks, your blonde hair and your smile that revealed the braces you’re wearing.
I miss them.
But all I have now is a photograph.
My life was drastically changed just like the seasons.
You were here in the Spring, bringing joy to my life
Summer we’re still together, having fun under the sun
But soon autumn came and suddenly you were gone

Now my heart is frozen like the winter never to change until I see Dawn.
