12. Chapter 10
A semi-colon. A pause between two sentences, where one could've ended and the other could've started. Yes, I'm an English geek. I always have been. That's how I met Rosie, did she tell you? Of course. I'm Pixie, and I was one of her closest friends. She referred to me as Dusty a lot, so let's stick with that.
How she ended her diary shocked me. She ended with a semi-colon. A semi-colon representing there was something left to come after her last sentence. It confused me because I found her diary two days after it was publicly announced that she had jumped off the cliff and committed suicide. The semi-colon representing more to come, yet she ended her life. Considering she was an English geek just like me, it didn't make much sense. Ro always liked proper English with correct, accurate punctuation. Her favourite part was metaphors and similes. She used a lot of them I noticed as I flicked through her diary.
Why I'm writing about this? Why I'm documenting the truths about my friend? Because somebody needs to know the truth. If they read Ro's diary without mine, they'll think she was the victim all the time. But she wasn't. She was the complete opposite of the victim. Didn't she tell you? Of course not. She wants to paint herself well. Congratulations Ro, but I'm sorry that you'll fail, because remember, I'm still alive... And you're still dead.
