Everything goes black

Extracts from this document...


Everything goes black It's 4 o'clock in the morning, she's been lying in bed since 10, unable to sleep. Her alarm is set to go off in 1 1/2 hours. All she's done for the past 6 hours is think. She dreads the morning. Dreads the monotonous daily routine that has become her life. Maybe she'll skip school today. Have a friend call her in sick. She wonders how she let her life get so bad. She thought she had control of it, of everything. She can't remember when she stopped being happy, only that it was a long time ago. She said she had control, that she could stop whenever she wanted to, but the scars were proof that she was wrong. ...read more.


She dreamed of a normal life. Not a life where she had to take a swig of vodka every morning just to function. She wished she had a life where she was at least a B average student, where she wasn't the center of her parents' fights. A life where death wasn't the main attraction at the 3-ring circus.

She doesn't even have to look at the numbers as she dials his cell phone. His message comes on. She's halfway disappointed, but then again, who answers their phone a 4:30 in the morning anyway? She leaves a message telling him to call her in sick, not expecting a reply, she hangs up. She puts the phone back on the charger, and turns off the alarm. She reaches under the bed and pulls out the white box that has been sitting under there, untouched, for 6 months. She opens it and takes out the loaded .8mm that rests inside. She cocks it and puts the barrel in her mouth. A single tear falls from her eye as she silently tells the world good-bye. Everything goes black. ...read more.
