I couldn’t believe he was paying attention to me! He walked up to my table and said “May I join you?” At this point everyone was staring. “Sure,” I mumbled looking down and picking at my salad. Suddenly I blurted out, “Why are you sitting with maim a total loser, a freak!” He just looked at me and calmly said, “You looked sad, and I wanted to help.” “But why nowise been here alone all year! Is this some kind of joke?” “Of course it’s not!” he said. “I was just scared before. Scared you’d shut me out like you do to everyone else.” That got me mad. “I only shut people out because I’ve learned that all they do is hurt you” I said. “And don’t get too attached. I won’t be here too much longer.” “Wait you mean you’re moving? Or are you gonna….” He trailed off awkwardly. “Kill myself? Yeah that was the plan.” “Was? “he asked. I just nodded. “Well what is it now?” he asked. “It’s a work in progress, “I said. “Wanna help?” He smiled and nodded. And that was the day I decided life was worth living again. But for how long?
