I walked into the house to be greeted by my parents who were just leaving, my older brother Will, in a suit behind them. "How was the funeral sweetie?" My dad asked. "Are you serious dad? It's a funeral!" Will exclaims. I let out a small laugh. My family. "Well we gotta go. You gonna be okay?" My mom smiles. I nod, "See ya." I wave goodbye as Hayes walks downstairs, in black jeans and my red Nike 'Just Do It." shirt, a black snapback on his head, red Vans on his feet. I raised my eyebrows. "Where are you going?" I asked. He smirked. "That cute girl Tina Woods is having a party at her place, It's mandatory that I go. Being the player I am." He winks. Oh brother...
"You're not going anywhere. I'm in charge and I say no. Now go take off my shirt." I point to the stairs. His jaw drops. "Dude!" I laugh. He really thinks that'll work on me. "Homeboy, is you deaf? Or nah? Get your ass upstairs, and your body out of my shirt." He scoffed. Is he really gonna argue with me? "Look here Nash! Just cause you're responsible for a girl's suicide doesn't mean you can take my life too! I'm going whether you-" In one swift movement I slapped him across his face. "I'm not the reason she killed herself! I didn't bully her!" "Well you sure didn't stop it now did you?!"
I began to protest but I stopped. Hayes was right. I was just as guilty. "I'm leaving. Don't expect me to come back anytime soon." He brushes past me and to the door. "Hayes. W-" He slammed the door and as if on sync Skylynn screamed, clearly upset.
I ran upstairs to find her in her big bed, her little body twisting and turning. "It's okay Sky, I'm here." I whisper, crawling into her bed. She gripped to my shirt in her small hands, burying her face in my chest. "Nash you killed yourself, then the whole family was sad, and they were putting you in the ground and the Hayes and Will jumped in the hole with mommy and daddy and I was left alone and I was scared." She cried, her body shaking in my arms.
My sweet little sister, who barely even understands how to work a fork had a dream about me committing suicide? "I'd never do that Sky. I'd miss you too much." She lets out a small giggle.
"Nash tell me about Christina, that pretty girl you like." She demands.
"Die in a hole!"
"No one would miss you!"
"Just die, but not in a hole, you'd put the Earth in pain."
"How about you just go to sleep and we'll talk later?" I ask, trying to avoid the subject. "Promise?" She sticks out her pinky. She's so precious. I nod and wrap my pinky around hers.
