The first few slides of the Instagram story comprise of black and white photographs of Billie and Skylar embracing each other, alongside sharply-colored, neatly-edited selfies the adolescent girl posted of herself on Instagram. 

As The Daily Mail reveals, Skylar moved away from her home of New South Wales to attend university in Sydney. 

Her greatest highlights of living in the fast-paced metropolis involved meeting her biggest idol, Billie Eilish. She purchased tickets to a concert taking place on April 30, 2019, at Sydney's Hordern Pavilion — and the rest was history.

"Skylar meant everything and more to us and we are deeply heartbroken," told Rob Davies, Skylar's father to The Daily Mail.

"She was an amazing daughter, sister and best friend. She was the love of my life, my everything my universe," Rob added further on in the interview. 

"I really can't believe she is gone. My heart breaks more as the reality of it all sinks in," he concluded the interview.

Billie posted additional photos of Kira, another one of her fans as well. 

The second half of Billie's Instagram story showed photos of her and Kira, a purple-haired young woman. 

"F–k, I don't understand why this is happening, I hate this, I don't know how I'm only finding out now, you're not here anymore, I love you so much Kira, please fly high, rest in peace," read Billie's caption. 

Some claim that Skylar died during a car accident, while others hypothesize that Kira passed away after having battled with cancer.  

The families have yet to make an official statement. The singer of "When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?" didn't clarify why she chose to commemorate the tragic death of the two young women via an Instagram story.
