Sarah's POV

It’s been two days since I saw Zak. I’ve already written and got the music for a song involving that encounter. It’s amazing how fast you can do something like that when you’re sad, hurt, and mad.

But my wound hasn’t healed yet for some reason. Mom told me that it was an Immortal thing, that when someone you cared about and trusted physically hurt you on purpose, the mark he leaves becomes a permanent scar until you make up with that person.

Yeah, I don’t think that’s going to happen with Zak.

It doesn’t hurt or bother me anymore, but it’s annoying.

My friends and family have been helping me through this. And I know he won’t admit it, but I’m pretty sure that my dad’s glad that I no longer have a boyfriend. But he’s still drinking. I’m working on that.

“Hey, Sarah,” Zack said. “What’s up?”

“Just working on my music,” I replied.

“Any new songs?”

“Uh, one. But I’m working on a few others.”

“Can I hear that one?”

“Sure.”

I went into the recording studio, placed a CD in, pressed a few buttons, went into the booth, put on my head phones, and began to sing:

The day I first met you

You told me you’d never fall in love
But now that I get you
I know fear is what it really was

Now here we are,
So close yet so far.
Haven’t I passed the test?
When will you realize,
Baby, I’m not like the rest?

Don’t wanna break your heart
Wanna give your heart a break
I know you’re scared it’s wrong
Like you might make a mistake
There’s just one life to live
And there’s no time to wait, to wait
So let me give your heart a break, give your heart a break
Let me give your heart a break, your heart a break
Oh yeah, yeah

On Sunday you went home alone
There were tears in your eyes
I called your cell phone, with my love
But you did not reply

The world is ours. If we want it,
We can take it if you’ll just take my hand.
There’s no turning back now.
Baby, try to understand

Don’t wanna break your heart
Wanna give your heart a break
I know you’re scared it’s wrong
Like you might make a mistake
There’s just one life to live
And there’s no time to wait, to wait
So let me give your heart a break, give your heart a break
Let me give your heart a break, your heart a break
There’s just so much you can take
Give your heart a break
Let me give your heart a break, your heart a break
Oh yeah, yeah

When your lips are on my lips
Then our hearts beat as one
But you slip out of my fingertips
Every time you run, whoa-oh-whoa-oh-oh

Don’t wanna break your heart
Wanna give your heart a break
I know you’re scared it’s wrong
Like you might make a mistake
There’s just one life to live
And there’s no time to wait, to wait
So let me give your heart a break

‘Cause you’ve been hurt before
I can see it in your eyes
You try to smile away, some things you can’t disguise
Don’t wanna break your heart
Baby, I can ease the ache, the ache
So let me give your heart a break, give your heart a break
Let me give your heart a break, your heart a break
There’s just so much you can take
Give your heart a break
Let me give your heart a break, your heart a break
Oh yeah, yeah

The day I first met you

You told me you’d never fall in love

After I finished recording the song, I got Zack’s comments on it.

“That was good,” he said. “But kind of a more mature song for you.”

“Are you saying I’m not mature?” I asked.

“No, you are. It’s just, maybe a little too much of a song for you to be singing now. But it’s good.”

“Well, I’m not going to put it on my first album. I have a lot of other songs from the past couple years. But I might put it on my second.”

“Oh, you’re so positive that you’re going to have a second album when the first one hasn’t even been made?”

“Yet. And yes. I’m going to have to get some backup singers and I’m hoping that Selena, Jessica, and Demi will be those singers for me since they’re my friends and I won’t have to audition anyone.”

“I’m sure they will. But do you know if they have good voices?”

“Good enough to be backup singers.”

Zack laughed. “Ok. Will you need my help for anything?”

“Well, I will need you to play the guitar and drums sometimes if you can do that,” I replied.

“Hey, anything for my twin sister.”

“Yes, well, I will be playing some instruments myself, but I’m going to need more of a band. Do you think Jason, Michael, and Mark can play instruments, preferably, the guitar?”

“I think so. Yeah.”

“Good. Having my friends and my twin brother be my band mates is a good thing, right?”

“I think so. But don’t worry, Sarah. You’ll do great.”

“Thanks, Zack.” I gave him a hug. “Now get out so I can work on more of my music.”

He smiled. “Fine.”

He left the room and I got back to work.


Another month passed and, by now, I had recorded my first official album. Twenty songs. The title was “This is Me”, and the cover art was me wearing a beautiful dress and looking absolutely confident. There was also a pamphlet in it that has the lyrics to all of the songs. (My mom wanted that in it because she likes it when albums have those in them and so do I.)

It’s supposed to be released in about a month. I’ve already heard the main title “This is Me” be played on the radio and got some nice feedback on it.

We celebrated with family and friends.

I wasn’t really use to being the only center of attention. Usually, I share it with Zack for our birthday and a few other things, but it was nice. Though, I’ll admit, a little nerve-racking, but I’ll get used to it eventually.

I even got some attention at school. Mostly from boys (no surprise). Even some of the girls, except Wendy. She’s been a bitch about it, saying I didn’t deserve it, but I just ignore her.

With my powers, I’m still able to attend school, kind of like Mom being the Protector of America. My friends, twin brother, and I were all eating lunch together in the cafeteria, chatting about random things, as usual.

“Uh, I’ll be right back,” Zack said. “I think I left my phone in my locker.”

“Umm, ok,” I said. “Since when do you leave your phone in your locker?”

He shrugged. “I thought I had it with me, but I think I may have put it in there just to set it down and then I forgot it.”

“Well, ok.”

He stood up from his seat and walked off.

A little while later, the school bell rang and everybody went to their next class. But Zack never returned. Selena and I waited a few minutes for him. Then we went to our next class, thinking that he went there, but he wasn’t, and he never showed up.

I was starting to get really worried.

“Something’s wrong,” Selena said.

“Yeah,” I agreed.

We ran to Zack’s locker since that’s where he said he was going.

When we got there, we found his backpack lying on the ground.

I picked it up. “Something definitely happened to him.”

“Yeah, but what?” Selena asked.

I shook my head. “I don’t know. But whatever did happen to him it can’t be anywhere near good.”


So, what do you guys think happened to Zack? You probably won't like it.

Anyway, quiz time! You probably already know what it is.

What was the name of the song that Sarah sang, and who sings it?

Please review here.
