Is this what death feels like, empty, cold, alone? Will I ever get the peace I so desperately desire? To live in a world where you’re merely noticed by anyone is a lonely place. I could be surrounded with meaningless people and I would be nothing to them…
I drummed my fingers on my laptop looking at my recent blog. It’s been what 5 years since Rae and Louis got married, we’re still living in the same place, I don’t like big places. I’m ready to go out into the world and fend for myself. They’ve been cautious ever since they got me back, I can’t blame them. Counselling, journals, therapy, mind control you name it and I’ve done it. Nothing helps, I mean sure talking to people who don’t give two fucks about my life should help, but it doesn’t. About a month ago I created a blog, this is where I post my thoughts online. I’ve received comments from telling me to just end it and comments like they are here for me they ‘care.’ I’m 17 now surely I should grow up and stop letting people get to me, Rae did it why can’t I?

“Reiss” Louis called from the bottom of the stairs. I rolled my eyes shutting my laptop and jumped down the stairs.
“Yes?” I asked sweetly moving past him.
I heard him chuckle from behind me as he followed me into the kitchen “watch it” he smacked the back of my head and sat down at the table. I laughed taking a bite of my toast and shoving my phone into my pocket.
Rae and Louis looked at me waiting for me to speak. I looked at them in a daze. Rae looked at Louis “Reiss about today, if you want I can come with you I don’t mind” she said calmly.
I sighed “I can do it by myself Rae, as much as you would like I’m not a kid anymore I can look after myself.” She frowned and I instantly felt bad “but if you would like to walk with me that would be okay” which brought back the smile to her face. I patted Louis’ arm goodbye and followed Rae out of the door.
She wrapped her arm around my shoulder “it’s going to be fine you know?”
“Rae I’m fine honestly” I said bluntly.
“Don’t do that you always do that. It’s okay to admit you’re scared especially to me, whatever you feel I probably have felt it.” But she doesn’t anymore, does she feel the need to go away forever and to just not exist? I nodded and continued to walk with her to school.
“It’s a good school” she said positively and instantly I knew she was talking crap. She felt my hesitation and continued “okay but it’s better than my last school, this one I actually did something with my life.”
“Getting married to Louis? Yeah I’m sure school helped you with that” I rolled my eyes.
“You have no idea” she said and stopped looking at the gates.
“Well this is me” I said nervously “I’ll see you later” I kissed her cheek and went through the gates. I heard her faint whisper “I love you Reiss” and I whirled around and pulled her into a hug “I love you too.”

The woman in reception was friendly, she printed out my schedule and showed me to my first lesson. But I highly doubt the rest of the school are like this. I had two choices to decide who I wanted to be, do I be the dork who keeps himself to himself, or do I try and fit in become someone else? I mean I’m sure the rest of the school would be happy to know I think about death as a natural thing. Rae’s warned me about this, losing yourself in order to fit in. But little does she know I’m already lost and I just want to be found.
