A Million And One Things Lilly’s POV I walked along the
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
“yeah gram?” I said turning around to face
“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

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
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
"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
"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
"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...
