Just do it already. It'll finally be over, all of it, the arguing, the abuse, the self hate, all of the hate.
"Just shut up already!!" I yelled at the voices in the back of my head. I've been standing at the outer ledge of the parks bridge over the water ready to drop for my death and just let the current take me. Once I was about to jump a voice stopped me. "Hey hey miss, what're you doin' get down from there you'll kill your self!" His voice was deep, and I could definitely hear his thick British accent. He stood about 2 feet from me on the other side of the bridge, the safe side. "Maybe that's what I was going for, so would you just go and mind your own business!?" I replied harshly an turned away from him looking down watching the waves splash down hard on the rocks. "Please don't do it, I can help you, your family will worry about you, do you not care for how they'll feel if you go through with this." He spoke softly.
"They won't even notice, no one will notice, they never have, they wouldn't even care what will be different now?" I asked."If they won't notice I would and I would be heartbroken." I chucked harshly at him,"why do you even care? Just get on with your life already leave mines alone, you don't even know me, just go!" I yelled. After moments of silence I watched him climb over the bridge and stand on the ledge with me. Once I realized this I yelled again, "what do you think you're doing?! Go back over." He gripped the railing of the bridge behind him, an looked towards me. "What does it look like I'm doing?" He paused. "I'm going to jump too, if you jump I jump." "Why?" Was all I can let escape my lips from the shock at this mystery boy beside me. "Because if I walk away, and you jump than I will have to live my whole life in regret for not saving you, for not doing something when I had the chance an I wouldn't want to live my life with such regret so I'll have to do it as well." He spoke softly, his voice surprisingly as it sounds southed me. I looked back towards the water,
"Why? you don't even know me."
"But I would like to."
Silence that's all it was, I stared at him confused as too why he's doing this he could've just walked away, he could've abandoned me and let me jump but no, he didn't do that. He finally spoke, "Please miss, I want to help." I didn't have any clue what I was doing when I finally spoke back to him again.
"My name it's Anastasia."
He looked at me surprised when I started climbing back over the railing back on to the bridge, I have a feeling this mystery boy is not going to leave me alone until I do. For some reason I feel I needed to get off the ledge, I wanted to just die so badly, but I'm not sure anymore, my mind is all over the place.
Eventually he followed my actions. "Well Anastasia, I'm Harry." He says as he sticks his hand out for me to shake. As I shake his hand I notice his eyes are a shade of green from the light coming from the street lamp. We started walking down the park in silence. None of us really knowing what to say to each other until we finally reach a bench, and sit. "So, do you want to talk about it?" Harry asked breaking the silence. "I mean you don't have to if you don't want to it's just I act-" I cut him off before he finished rambling on. " it's fine, I just have had not the best life, I guess there's to much to really go into details on right now; And I just really wanted it to be over;" "be free from it all." He finished for me. "Exactly" "I don't know really what I was thinking, I guess I just wasn't" I spoke shyly looking out into the dark.
After a few more moments of silence I heard him take a deep breath before again speaking. "Can I tell you something?" He asked. "Sure." I looked at him just admiring his features, an although it was a bit dark out I can make out each one, like his small simple that pops up even though he isn't smiling, his jaw line a perfect shape an- I was cut off in my thought by his voice. "Well" he paused and took another deep breath. "To be honest the only reason I actually was there to be able to 'save you' so to speak, was because I was there to do the same." My eyes widened as he said that, "what'd you mean?" I asked.
"Well I was on my way to the bridge to y'know, k-kill my self when I realized someone else was there. You. And speaking to you, an helping you out made me realize I couldn't do it, I didn't have the courage to actually do it, and there's more people with problems just as bad as mine." He finished.
"Wow," I paused "well this is some night huh?" I asked. He just chucked. "I guess we're each other's heroes aren't we then?" I smiled as he said that. "I guess we are."
We kept talking for a while, sitting on bench that we hadn't realized it had been about 2 hours later already."I guess I better get going on home then" I said. "Yeah me too." He replied. We both got up and started walking back to our houses. It turned out We lived not too far from each other.
"So this is me," I said once we reached the front of my house. "Well I'll see you around, I guess text me?" he told me. We had exchanged numbers earlier on the bench.
"Alright" I said as I walked to my door.
"Alright" he said walking away.
