A. She Way Out by The 1975
First line: with a face from a movie scene.
Last line: she way out
With a face from a movie scene it was unsurprising that Kathy got asked on dates all the time. Not that she was boastful it’s just a well known fact that she does.
It was the spring of 1999 and Kathy had graced me with the honour of becoming her best friend. She was one of the most popular girls in school. Everybody wanted to be Kathy’s friend she was the type of girl who boys want to be with and girls want to be. She was beautiful, kind and charismatic the girl who had everything.
Her hair was natural platinum blonde and she wore the same style as Marilyn Monroe. Everyone knew she wanted to be an actress and was destined for great things.
That’s why it was such a shock. When they found her body broken and smashed against the rocks by the pool where she liked to bathe. Everyone was shocked except for me. I knew what she was planning. That she was so unhappy with her life and wanted to die. I had sat by the pool dipping my feet in the water and humming a tune as she walked towards he sea her pockets filled with stones. She had wanted to die, to leave it all behind. To be as far away as if she were in space. Deep into the sea and way out.
This was surprisingly hard to write. Mostly due to the word count. It’s hard to do a complete story in only 250 words! I tried my best though and would be grateful for any feedback!
