28. Silence

Here I was. The wind was whistling through my ears, as I walked through the dry crackling leaves. The grass was brittle, almost felt like it would shatter the ground when I walked on it. My mind was blank, not thinking of anything but here and now. My eyes set on the willow tree, I made my way to it. I stood under it, and took a deep breath. This is what I want right? For all of my fears, worries and pain to be over. I just want to live in peace, but quite frankly, it will never happen if I stay here.

 I took the rope that I keep in my backpack out and tied it to the highest tree branch. Tears splattered on my legs like rain drops, as I slipped the loop over my neck. I look at the world for one last time. Just like last time this is. Me about to rest in peace finally, but last time, someone stopped me. Someone I loved very much, stopped me from doing it. He ruined my life, but made it better at the same time. He was my savior, but now? He is just a boy, who forgot about the one who cared about him so. He left me at my time of need, which was not the reason I was upset. I am used to people coming and going. I was not upset with him at all, actually. I am more upset with myself. I am upset that I let someone in my life who could mean something to me. He is stopping me from stepping off this rock right now. All of these thoughts of the special boy running through my head faster than I can keep up with. I start to feel light headed, but I regain my balance. My breathing becomes unsteady, as I almost fall over. If I fall, it is all over. My life will be over. That is what I want, right?

 I open my eyes to a clear blue sky, and the trees blowing in the distance. My bright blue eyes glistening with fresh tears. The emotions I am feeling start to consume me like a black hole. My body starts trembling, and my teeth start to chatter from the cold. I close my eyes once again, and take a deep breath. I start to move my feet in millimeters, very slowly. I am at the edge of the rock now, my stomach twisting in tangled knots. I start to count down to myself quietly, tears freely streaming down my pale white face. Three.....This is it, I guess. Two......People will miss me this time though...stop Amelia, don't think about them! One. I step one foot off the rock, when I hear a high pitched shrill scream come from the distance. I hear footsteps stomping through the leaves, a familiar voice yelling my name. I quickly shake this out of my head, and get ready to step off the rock completely. I step my second foot off, but just as the pain set in, a strong pair of arms catches me in their grasp. The rope is untied from my neck, as I am scratching and screaming at the stranger. I am in the person's arms, as I look up at a very familiar face. There is nothing but silence.

Pure silence.
