Jenny was in his arms, close to his heart. And Adam was in her arms, tightly with
Adam only had tears, he was able to pull himself together and be silent.
Jenny on the other hand, was crying like a baby.
Her hands digged into his back, making sure he couldnt leave her.
"I dont know what I would live for if it werent for you, Jenny." He whispered in her
She squinted her eyes, crying uncontrolably.
They stood there, silent. Holding eachother.
The next day, Jenny and Adam had become a couple.
Summer was over and it was Fall.
One October afternoon after school, Jenny walked through the quiet, empty streets.
She stood frozen in the same place Matt broke her heart. She continued walking. She
saw the spot in the road where Adam stood the night they met.
She had chills knowing that she had lived here an entire year. Her life had been
turned upside down, thanks to Adam.
She smiled, thankful for the night her and Adam met.
She starred at the grass where they sat down together, not even knowing eachother for
5 minutes. She smiled to herself and chuckled.
She sat down in the spot he sat, and put her book back filling in the seat she sat
The grass was cool and wet, just like when they sat down that night. She pulled out a
piece of grass, spinning it in between her thumb and her finger. She starred at it,
remembering the talk they had sitting here.
Tears couldnt stop leaking her brown eyes. After 15 minutes of memories, she stood
back and continued walking back home with the same piece of grass still in between
her two fingers.
Starring down at the ground as she was walking, she heard a voice from in front of
"Jenny." A low voice said.
It was Matt.
She was shocked. She jumped, and walked backwards as he began to walk after her. He
had a gun in his hand.
"Matt! Stop! Get away!" She screamed, almost falling to the ground. She fell to the
grass on the side, in a neighbors yard.
He held the gun up to his head.
"Say that you love me!" He yelled at her, walking towards her.
"Matt! Knock it off! This isnt funny!" She screamed, crawling backwards. The grass
was wet so her feet kept slipping.
"Say it!" He yelled!
"Put the gun down!" She cried, beginning to shake.
"Jennifer. I would DIE for you! Im in love with you! Tell me you love me and Ill have
a reason to live." He said to her, putting his finger on the trigger.
It was Adams house they were infront of.
He ran out the front door with a baseball bat. He had only his jeans on. No shirt.
"Get away from her!" He yelled, raising the baseball bat.
"Stay away, Adam! Please!" Jenny begged him.
"Jenny, say it!" Matt screamed.
"Matt! I dont love you! I love Adam." She cried, sobbing and shaking.
A loud shot came from the gun.
He had done it.
Jenny yelled and cried at the same time.
She stood up and ran into Adams arms, shaking, crying. She couldnt speak. Neither
Matt fell to the floor, bleeding all over the concrete.
They were frozen there until the police came.
Adam took Jenny inside. He carried her in his arms.
She was still shaking after and hour, and crying. They were in Adams bedroom.
He sat up at the headboard, looking at the wall, in shock. Jenny lied in his lap,
crying and shaking and screaming into his pillow.
Adam put his cold hands on each side of her face and told her that everything would
He strocked her soft, long, brown hair, comforting her.
