Sandra Jones Is Dead

After Sandra Jones jumps off a cliff, a town is left reeling. As her family and friends provide pieces of information, secrets are revealed and more questions are asked than answered. What happened?


7. Sandra Jones' Mother Is Awake

“What can you remember about waking, Mrs Jones?”

“I remember my eyelids cracking open, and the light flooding in… I can remember thinking-” No, I don’t want to be here. This isn’t what I want.

“What can you remember thinking?”

“I can’t, now.” Lies. Of course I can. Why would I tell you? You’ve never known this like I have. “And how are you feeling now?”

“I’m alive, I suppose.” I’m alive. I don’t want to be. Sandra was all I had. I just want to be with her. “You say it like being alive is a bad thing,  Mrs Jones.”

“You say it like it isn’t, Doctor.”

“That’s because it isn’t. We both have everything to live for.”

“What do I have to live for?” She’s shifting awkwardly. This won’t be good.

“Well, lots of things. Show life it can’t have you both just yet. Keep fighting. Make it so she didn’t die in vain. Fight so others will see living as an option.” That is the most pretentious bullshit I have ever heard in my life, but… she might be onto something. “I’ll have a think about it, Doctor.” Like there’s anything else for me to do in here. “Until next week, Mrs Jones.”
