Band 8 Sample

I am going to talk about a clock necklace that I gave my best friend, Julie.

It was at the end of grade 10 that she left me to continue her study abroad. For fear that I would be forgotten someday, I tried to think of a farewell gift that could make her think of me every time she saw it. It was not an easy task to find the right present; maybe it was because I was being too picky. She was more than a friend to me, she’s more like my sister, or my soul mate. I didn’t want to give her something meaningful but useless, or something useful but emotionally empty. I wanted something that was special, something that would make her say “wow” when she received it. I wandered from shop to shop to look for something, but I didn’t know what.

One day, I came across something reminding me of her right away – a vintage necklace with a clock pendant. It perfectly suited her style, so she could wear it with any of her clothes. What I liked about the clock was that it was custom-made, I could design the number and write a message on it too. The thing is, when giving her the necklace, I set the clock to the local time in Vietnam, so whenever she needed to tell the time she would feel annoyed because of the difference in time zones, and I hoped that she would think of me right at the moment. The price wasn’t expensive at all, about $20, but to a high school student like me at that time it was a fortune. I had to skip breakfast for an entire month to purchase it, but it was totally worth it. She had no clue about how I bought it but she liked it anyway. I felt exhilarated when I could buy my bestie something beautiful that she deserved, and I hoped that this chain would tie us forever.
