Journal & Skates…

“I swear she is going to do that… It’s not that she’s just tired… I know she really meant it because I am still wet from the stamps of her feelings… She is hurting, I know it”

“But what are you going to do about it?”

“I don’t know but if I do nothing I won’t be able to forgive myself for the rest of my life…”

“I am thinking about interfering with the events unfolding… Somehow if I can get someone to read what she has written… Someone who can tell her that grades are not the only thing in life… Someone who can convince her that missing the top grade one semester does not make her a failure…”

“Don’t even think about breaking the cardinal rule… You know you will be banished from our kind to the inanimate hell… You might even lose His grace…”

“I would be lying if I said I don’t care about that but the powers that we have, are given to us for a reason. If I am to be judged for my actions so be it.”

“But what…”

“I can try to find a way for her parents to read that…”

“But you told me that the whole ‘pressure’ thing is because of her parents’ wish to top her class…”

“Yes, that’s true; the only other person is… her brother”

“But how do you intend to let him know about this? Don’t tell me you were thinking of telling him… Sorry, this is no time for jokes”

“I think I can do it if I had some help…”

“Don’t look at me… I have nothing to do with it… and for all we know this might turn out to be a hoax…”

“Please do it for me, for old time’s sake, we have known each other for all our lives…”

“Ok… I know I am going to hell for this… Now I know what my mom meant when she said ‘making friends with the wrong kind’”

“Thank You”

[Sometime later that afternoon; the brother enters his sister’s room to get back his iPod, slips on the skates that he didn’t see lying around and falls flat on his face, the impact knocks the table and his sister’s diary lying at edge falls on him. He gets up and notices the open diary to today’s date and starts reading the entry. A tear rolls down his eye as he finishes. Later he talks to his sister about life and how there’s more to life than grades. He talks to her on how you don’t give up fighting when you fail only redouble your efforts the next time… and that there is always a next time…]

Around midnight a bright light appeared in the room and the journal and skates were sent to heaven at their wish; which was right there in that room.

The only sad part is that there are fewer considerate journals & skates around.
