The death of Eliza Swift

“Nobody cares.” I kept repeating to myself softly. I could feel even more tears streaming down my already soaked cheeks. My name is Eliza Swift. I live in Japan but I was born in England. At this moment it time I’m walking up the stairs to the roof of the commercial building that my friends dad works at. I kind of borrowed his spare keys to the roof. Also when I say friend, well I don’t know what I mean when I say friend. I feel like I don’t have anyone. Nobody cares about me. Not anymore. Just about everybody at school had told me at least once that they wanted me dead. I don’t know why. I’m top of my classes and I try hard. Why do they want me dead?

My hand was shaking fiercely as I pushed the key into the lock and opened the door. The fresh air hit my tear stain cheeks making them feel like they were going to freeze off. Not  that it mattered. As I said and know, nobody cares. I noticed a hut like thing in the corner of my vision, but I just ignored it. I walked over to the edge of the roof, and tried to force myself to take the next step. But I couldn’t. Instead I sat down, my legs dangling over the edge of the building. I just sat there and stared at the world below me. I put in my headphones and listened to my favourite songs, most of which were English. None of my friends were as good at English as me, and they couldn’t understand the songs. I could. So I sat there, watching the sun set and the world get darker by the minute. I had nowhere to be, so I stayed where I was. Until someone came up to me and sat down next to me. I was startled, but I didn’t jump up or anything, I just stayed put. We both sat in silence for a while, then I pulled out my headphones.

“Um, excuse me but what are you doing up here?” I asked the other person. I turned to look at them. It turned out that the person was around 40 and male.  He told me that he stayed in the hut I had seen earlier. He also told me that his son, how was around my age, was also staying at the moment. He invited me in. “But why do you want me to come in?” I asked him. Nobody cared about me, so why should he?  “Because you are in a bad way and need to talk. You might feel better after that.”
