Without You

This is the story of Jamie, Hana, Ginger, Juliet and John. Their best friend commits suicide.

Jessica. Bullied every day. So tired of it she ended her life, before it even started.

Broken hearts heal over time. Or so they say.

9. Flicker

My green eyes train on the tiny flame of the candle. It wavers and shivers under my empty gaze. I'm gone. Done.

I pull my knees up to my chest and lay my forearms over one another, resting them on my knees with my chin propped on top. Memories of Jessica swim through my head, mixing with ones of Emma.

The tiny flame dances before me, capturing my attention. I take a couple of deep breaths, causing the light to tremble. I'm not sure how long I sit there. But as I watch it, the flame gets lower and lower on the candle until, like any hope I had of being okay, it flickers and goes out.

I look at Jamie. I've never seen her like that. Not so hollow and empty. This is it. I know that she's as good as dead now. I'm just waiting, waiting for her to give. Because her life is like that candle. I'm just waiting for the flicker.
