    February 6, 2015 will always be a significant day in my life. It was a Friday, and it was also the day my aunt Pam lost her life to a tough battle with multiple different types of cancer. It was heartbreaking news, and all I wanted to do after finding out was go lay in my bed and cry. However, that 's not what happened, and the day was long from being over. It was a sunny, somewhat chilly Friday afternoon, and I was supposed to be dismissed early from my 7th period class to board the basketball bus. We were headed to Newton, who beat us by 9 earlier in the season, for a redemption game. All day at school, my stomach did flips and my feet wouldn 't stop tapping as anticipation and excitement built. “Paige, you 're dismissed. Good luck tonight,” my spanish teacher Mrs.Clark announced. I hurried out of the classroom and grabbed my basketball bag from my car. As I grabbed my iPhone out of my pocket to check the time, I saw a text from my mom. “Call me as soon as you can,” I read aloud to myself. Immediately my heart sped up and my stomach flips from earlier returned, but were multiplied by a hundred. This time it was pure fear instead of excitement. I knew right after reading it, it would be an update on my aunt Pam. About six months prior to this, my aunt went in for a check up after some strange occurrences with her body began happening. A couple days of testing later, it became known that Pam had cancer spots in her lungs, liver, bones, and brain. The doctors tried radiation…

    Best friends are the only thing in the world that stick by your side through the hard spells no matter what is occurring. They are the ones that tell you that look great in the morning, speak up for you when you do not, make you smile when no else can and they are the ones that love you for who you are. Best friends are a rarity just like diamonds and during my freshmen year of high school I met strangers that would soon become a fragment of myself and my family. These girls changed my life for…

    "The Mug." He replies in a monotone. Is he concentrating or annoyed with me? Probably both. And even with the awful mood I 'm in, I can 't help feeling a tiny cheer go on in my mind when he answered with that. At least we 're going there. He pulls into the parking lot and parks near the door. I sit in my seat, still buckled, while Blake gets out of the car. I lean my elbow on the door, and rest my head in my hand and close my eyes. What is going on?! Camden screws me over, but maybe he doesn…

    Daltyn watched Sterling saunter across the room after coming in the house. “Jer is in a talkative mood today. He wouldn’t shut his mouth the whole ride to school.” He smiled his cheshire-cat smile and sat unnecessarily close to her on the couch. “His name is Jericho, not Jer. You are not my father, nor will you ever be, so you don’t have the right to call him Jer.” Her hands formed into defensive and protective fists, but they stayed glued to her side.

    Magic In Our Hearts It still seems like it was just yesterday. The smell of the roses, the cloud of hairspray covering my home from left to right. People running around trying to get ready. Somehow everything seemed to be passing by so slow for me. I felt such calmness and peace going through me. I looked down and could see I was only half ready, still wearing my blue basketball shorts and Pink Floyd t-shirt. Make up was already done and hair was almost done just needed a few…
