Aspen By Rebecca Crane The Beginning Caitlin Ryan sat in front of me in chemistry at stare at the back of her head and wonder what it would be like to have straight brown hair instead of the curly, dirty blonde mess that protrudes from my head like a perm on a troll doll. I bet she used one of those big paddle Russia's instead of a pick and ran it through her hair at least 10 times before school. We even spoke ones. Do you have a pencil I can borrow? She asked, turning around and tossing her hair over her shoulder. No, sorry, that's okay, she said, and smiled. I dug into the front pocket of my backpack and felt the pile of number two pencils at the bottom. I'm not good at sharing. One other time, I almost asked her what conditioner she used. But the class ended, and I didn't. Last month, Caitlin Ryan's baby blue Honda Accord crashed into my white Volkswagen. Rather, we hit head on, and she flew through her windshield When I was getting stitched up at the hospital afterward, all I kept thinking was that I should have given her a damn pencil. Newton's first love motion. Every object in a state of uniform motion remains in that state of motion. Unless an external force is applied to it. Caitlin Ryan is dead. I know that. I just can't figure out how to get her to leave me alone.
