What Jade Left Behind in 2008
Jade looked at the worn journal with envy and awe. Ten years of observations - it couldn’t possibly be over, could it? She knew today would eventually come, but she was not ready for the swiftness, or the emotions choking through her brain.
For 10 years now, she knew 2008 would be the final year. No more friendship, no more love, no more anything on this third rock from the Sun. Ten years, this was all she had been given. At the time Jade made the deal, 10 years seemed like an eternity, but it had passed in the blink of an eye.
How could she leave her new home? How could she survive the rest of her life without the new friends, new love she had found on this alien planet?
Jade’s eyes filled with tears as she picked up the journal and bid her old life goodbye.
