Are You Happy?

By the middle of my sophomore year in high school, I had my whole life figured out. Once we graduated, my best friend and I would go to college. I'd be an art major and Emily would take all the psych classes her heart desired. We'd share an apartment just off campus. While in college, we'd date around before finding our other halves. Get married, buy a house, have kids, give them play-dates together, you know? The whole shebang.

Before the year was over, Emily was gone. She was walking home from the movie theater, just a few blocks from her house, and was hit by a car. I still remember her mother's voice on the phone when she called me from the hospital. My plans crumbled beneath me. Emily's family moved away, and I stayed here with mine. It's been two years since the accident and time seems to be standing still.
