Callie was a straight A student who met the wrong boy....She learns that you can lose everything in the blink of an eye, as well as regain things and even that death is always closer than you think.

It was close to the end of my senior year when I died.  Well died for eleven minutes eight seconds....at least that's what we're told by paramedics.  Before we get into the story let me tell you a little about myself.  I was 17 years old and not hanging out with a great group of people.  I went from straight A college bound student to having a low c average.  My life had taken a turn for the worse.  I started doing drugs and self harming I felt alone in the world.  I had friends.  Noah was the closest.  He understood me even when I didn't. He was always there for me until one day he just stopped talking and pushed me away.  After that I looked for comfort in other friends but they did the same thing, and I just didn't understand.  What had I done to lose everything?  I asked myself the same question for weeks.  Why?  That's when I met Cayde.  I knew he was trouble, but he accepted me with open arms.  We hung out together and he accepted me when others didn't.

      I was at Cayde's house one night when he pulled out the cocaine.  I had never done drugs before but he pushed me and I tried.  The high made me feel good.  Different but good.  I missed school the next day and just layed around Cayde's house drinking and getting high.  My mom never called.  She never texted.  Never even tried to see if I was alive.  That was expected why would she want to have to look at someone who reminded her daily of her dead husband?  As day's passed I just slowly quit talking.  Nobody seemed to notice.  I felt like I was cutting myself off from society.  I continuously got more depressed and began cutting deeper than I ever had before.  I didn't even bother hiding the fresh wounds any more.  I felt like it was a call for help, I hated myself and NEEDED help, but no one would offer it.
