The Last Thing Amanda Said
Hey everyone I was just wondering what the last thing Amanda said to you was… it might help us find her somehow.
The last time I saw her I was really upset because I had lost something that was very important, we’d just finished watching the human version of Peter Pan because she knew how much I loved it and thought it might make me happy. After I said how I was never going to find it. She simply said, “I have to go now Selena, but remember you will find it sometime, as Wendy says, “Never is such a long time.” See you soon.”
I just laughed when she said that and wiped some tears from my eyes, but maybe she meant we definately will see her again because after all, never is such a long time.

Um. It’s personal but.. oh well.
My granfather died in december two years ago. And last year was the remembery. Amanda came to it. It was so unexpected and crazy. She wasn’t even that truly close to me. Yet she was everything, you know? Ill explain some more later. She came by me and took my hand and held it to her heart.
“Do you hear that?” she asked. “Thats my heart and its beating.” she brought mine and hers hand to my own chest. “Do you hear that? Thats your heart beating.” Then she brought it to the ocean. Two years ago we put my granfather in many different oceans so he would see all the wonders of the world. she said. “Do you hear that? Thats your grandfather.” She let go of my hand then and I almost cried becasue she was gone. But she wasn’t done. She dipped two fingers in the water to where they were drippling wet and drew tiny circles across my cheeks.
I felt the water dry quickly through my pores.
“See?” She whispered. “Now he will always be with you.”
I cried then. Bawled my head off. My Grandpa was one of the most cherished people in my life. I was his sunshine and I miss him. she brought my head to her shoulder and she hugged me. Just huggd me. We sat there for hours? minutes? I don’t know how long. But at one ppoint I stopped crying.
She cupped my face. “I don’t want you to forget your grandfather.” She turned my chin to where I was looking right in her eyes. Her eyes are deeply beautiful if you ever got the chance to see them.
she said: “I don’t want you to ever forget me either.” She brought her hand to my hand and I felt soething scratchy and worn. She placed a square shapped card in my hand. She closed my eyes and said: “I want you to count to ten and open it.”
I did as she said, knowing something but not sure of myself.
When I opened my eyes she was gone. Tears streamed down my face and as I opened the card.
It said one thing: “Soon”
But truly Amanda has never said her good byes. She is still with us. Look at all the clues around us. But that was the last thing she said to me, even if it was in a card. “Soon.”

Well this is kinda boring compared to yours, but Oh well
Me and Amanda liked going out together, on walks and stuff. But since there isnt anywhere to walk properly in my town, me and amanda used to find little crooks and things to hide in whenever we visited a field. We used to make a little den in each one and stock them with books and things to do if we ever felt like visiting. Whenever it rained, (which was a lot) it didn’t matter because our dens were like tents. And we had blankets for the cold. But one day I went to every single one looking for her. And eventually I found an umbrella that I had never seen before, with a little notecard next to it that said “I’ll be back”

The last thing Amanda said to me…
I think it was
“Zy, be careful and good luck. I’m off. See you again later. Call if you need anything, k? Remember what I told you.”
And I do remember. Of course that is completely confidential. I’ve called, she’s answered and we’ve seen eachother lots of times until last month. She’s hung onto me and a few other people the longest and now she’s let go.
Urgh. Come back.

I am an avid dancer, it’s one thing I can’t live without. Amanda claimed to have that same passion, but somehow I didn’t believe her. I was walking to my dance studio after school when Amanda ran up to me and said that she was leaving. I asked her why and all she said was, “Look, Dots, some things are best kept a secret.” I felt like a naive 5 year old, but still I asked her when she was returning. She looked down at her feet and sighed, before raising her chin and saying, “When you know, not in your head, but in your heart, that you need me.”
And she walked away, without even saying goodbye.

The last thing Amanda said to me was “Don’t forget to write… And do it with passion.”
I know thast weird, but I was going through a tough time, and almost gave up my favorite hobby (writing), which is my whole life, more or less.
Amanda talked me out of quoting, and she read all of my poem journals, and she read all of my stories.
She explained to me how writing was a beautiful thing, and I should never give in.
And so, I continue to write, thanks to Amanda,
