Fragements Of The Moon
“I think art is a powerful and beautiful way of storytelling. It can convey feelings and emotions that words alone cannot convey. an outlet for creativity and self-expression, and a language of emotions and sensations.
When someone creates a work of art, they are sharing a part of themselves with the world and that is powerful thing.”
I rushed to the school museum, intent on finding Chloe. I needed to say sorry for all of my hurtful words and my rash actions. I was so focused on finding her that I completely forgot about my notebook. But when I remembered where I left it, all my panic was replaced with embarrassment and frustration. I had really messed up and I knew it. I could only hope that I would be able to find Chloe and apologize for all of the pain and hurt that I had caused.
I was walking back to the school museum where I left my notebook, I saw a group of students laughing and joking as they taking a painting out of the wall. The three of them were laughing and joking around as they carried the painting outside the gallery on their way towards the campus pool.
I immediately grew suspicious of their intentions and decided to follow them.
"Hey guys, check out this cool painting!" a boy said as he showed off the painting to the other students waiting around the area
"Damn, that is one cool-looking painting. Hey, how about we set it on fire?"
"What? That's crazy!"
"Nah, go for it! I'll film it for our YouTube channel."
"Dude, no. That's ridiculous."
"Are you guys serious? Why would you ever want to set a painting on fire? That's insane!"
"Don't be a pussy. Don't you want some views? Fire away!" a short hair boy said as he lit a match
I was shocked and immediately ran over to stop them.my body went cold as I was horrified to realize that it was Chloe's painting! I stopped my track as if my body was frozen
"what do you think you’re doing? “I asked as I glared at them
"Set it on fire! Duh! Come on, it'll be awesome! “one of the boys responded
"Are you crazy? You can't set a painting on fire. That's crazy and dangerous and you could destroy it.”I said coldly
"Dude, don't be a buzzkill. Just chill out and enjoy the ride."
This scums had stolen chloes masterpiece and destroyed it. I was so upset and shocked that they would do such a thing without any regards for the damage they were causing.
"I'm sorry, but I'm not going to let you do that. “I said as I rolled up y sleeves” It's dangerous and destructive and I believe you already done enough damage to it."I added as I walk closer towards them
However, one of the boys took a camera filming everything as the boy with the match earlier pulled a new matchstick and lit it up
Before the fire could get any closer to the painting, I grabbed the arms of the boy who was trying to set the painting on fire and said directly into his face. “If you want to see something burn, go start a bonfire” I said as took the match away from him and squeeze the box tightly making sure every matchstick inside it was crushed
“Don't try to destroy a masterpiece that belongs to chloe!
When I smell something burning
“woah that’s cool bro!!”a voice How did I forgot the lit matchstick earlier…..
I rushed over and tried to get the painting, but they wouldn't let me go. I tried my best to escape from their grip and I finally managed to rescue it
Water “I need water “I said in panicked
The boy looked at me shocked, but didn't say a word in response.
I ran towards the pool, holding onto the burning painting for dear life. Unfortunately, I didn't notice that the pool was much more slippery than I expected. I slipped and fell into the water, taking the painting with me. I struggled to keep my head above water, but the weight of the painting was too much for me and I sank down into the depths.
I sank deeper and deeper into the dark water, desperate to reach the surface. I could only imagine the horror of those who would find my body and chloe’s beautiful painting, forever lost to the depths of the pool.
It must have been ruined by now…I failed to protect it? Did I?
As I sank deeper into the dark water, I felt my lungs being crushed by the weight of the water. Every instinct told me to fight for air, but my body would not respond. I couldn't move anymore.
The light above me slowly faded until it was gone, and the world turned dark and cold. It felt like I had fallen into a bottomless pit, with no hope of ever escaping. It was a terrifying experience, and I'm not sure how long I stayed down there.
“I have to saved Chloe’s painting “I thought
Why am I even doing this? To justify myself? to say that I was trying my best to save something dear to my friend?
I was so sorry for everything, and I couldn't help but beat myself up over my mistake as I suddenly remembered what had happened earlier
"You can't paint love", I said to Chloe, my voice harsh and cold. “No matter how great you are you can’t portray love in canvas and this painting and the story of yours…is stupid “I didn't know what had come over me. I was feeling so hurt and angry and confused, and the words just came out without thinking. But the look on Chloe's face when she heard those words....the hurt and pain I had caused... It crushed me.
I knew that I had done something horrible and I immediately wanted to take it back, but it was too late. I hoped that she would forgive me for my cruel words and allow me a chance to explain myself.
I immediately felt a wave of regret wash over me. How could I have been so cruel to one of my closest friend? Was it because of my jealousy towards her?
What had come over me in that moment? I was so embarrassed and ashamed of myself for acting so harshly and rudely towards her. I knew that no matter what, I needed to apologize and make things right.
I hoped that she would forgive me and allow me the chance to explain myself. I promised that I would never act like that again, and that I would never allow my own hurt feelings to cloud my judgment or lead me to mistreat those I cared about that way again.
When did it start again?
