-Cole's POV-

Because I never fell asleep, I figured I might as well get up early. It was around 5:30 am. I threw on some clothes, had a piece of toast, brushed my teeth, grabbed my bag, and left.

The high school was only a few blocks away, so I walked around town until it was time to go.

Of course, when I walk in the doors the first thing I see is Katrina and Liam, kissing again.

"Just ignore them, Cole. He's only trying to make you mad," I said to myself, gritting my teeth and walking past

As I walked through the halls, I heard whispers and a few muted giggles. By lunchtime it turned into full-blown gossip and laughter. People were saying that I was supposedly "not good enough" in bed for Katrina, so she left me. Please. We never even did it. But it continued. Relentless torment, I couldn't take one step without someone snickering.

I had had enough.

That night at dinner, I picked at my food while Ali droned on about the play they were putting on at her school. "And I'm playing Rapunzel. I can't believe I got the lead!" She gushed. All I could think about was how my life was breaking into pieces all around me.

For days after that, I did nothing but stare at my wall, and ignore everyone. I kept spiralling down deeper into a hole of depression, until one day when I snapped.

"Hey, mom. I'm taking the truck for a drive." I said.

"Alright, just be careful. The roads are pretty slippery." She replied.

I drove fast, not caring if I crashed, until i reached it. The bridge. The place where some people came to kiss, others came to end it all.

I was here for the latter.

I parked and climbed out of the truck, and made my was over to the edge. Placing my hands on the guard rail, I realized they were shaking. Not from the cold, but from the thought of what I was about to do. I glanced over. The river was nearly frozen. Just the fall alone could kill a man, let alone the freezing water below the ice.

I checked to see if anyone was watching, then hoisted myself up, standing on the railing. I shut my eyes, warm tears trailing down. I had lost my girlfriend, my best friend, my family, my reputation, and my happiness. I was done.

5..4..3..2..1...... And I fell. I opened my eyes, seeing the starry sky, then it all turned black.
