We were in the middle of lit class when a school assignment affected my life completely. Mr. Winkler was angry at us for not paying attention, so, out of the blue he said, "You will all have to write a song and perform it. It has to be about a sad event, so choose wisely." And on that note, the bell rang.
"Nina, what are you going to do?" Amber asked, sitting up on her bed. "Why?" I asked, still staring at the ceiling. "Because I got nothing," Amber groaned. "Well, I was thinking of dedicating a song to my brother, who is a soldier," I contemplated. "That sounds heartfelt. But the saddest thing that's happened to me is when I was bullied, and I don't want to talk about that. I'm screwed." Amber sighed. "Well, maybe you could write a song about somebody who left you. Heck, it could be about a boyfriend," I grinned at Amber, who shrugged. "I can't play any instruments, though. Can you?" I smiled shyly and brought out my acoustic guitar that my brother gave to me before…yeah. "Ah. Well, good luck," Amber said. I sighed. I hated performing in front of people. All of a sudden, my phone rang.
I didn't know what I was going to do. I just played the guitar, and as for singing-that just wouldn't work. Hmm…something sad…like when I broke up with Nina?
I knew what mine was going to be about. It was about a girl who loves a boy who still likes his ex.
