Before reading, please note that I'm attempting something I'm probably incapable
of; writing a decent story. :]
Jason felt strangely content with what he was about to do. Sure, his adrenaline was
pumping and the cool night air was sending chills throughout his body, but he had no
doubt that this was the only way to end the pain he felt deep in his heart.
The wind was blowing his long dark brown hair wildly in his face as he counted down
the minutes until midnight. Just five more minutes to go until it was over for good.
No more pain, no more suffering, and most importantly no more Alice.
Alice. Jason winced in pain at the thought of her name. Her face came to his mind.
Beautiful green eyes, long and wavy reddish brown hair that framed her oval face, her
full red lips that tasted like strawberries.
The memory of the night before suddenly played in his head. He’d tried to block it
out, but it proved to be impossible. The memory was like a movie stuck on replay.
Over and over again he had to watch it, live it.
He had been so excited to see her. She called him asking him to meet her at the
park. He remembered rushing so she wouldn’t have to wait so long.
When he arrived he found her sitting on a bench. He beamed, practically running over
to her, a big smile on his face. That smile disappeared when he saw the look on her
“What’s wrong? What happened?” he asked her, instantly worried. Instinctively,
his hand moved up to cradle her face, his thumb stroking her cheek.
“This is hard to say. And I know it’ll be hard for you.” He waited in silence
for her to continue. “I can’t do this anymore. Us. I thought that I could love
you back, and I tried to play along, but I just can’t. Something is just missing.
You’re a great guy, but you’re not the right guy for me.”
Jason snapped back to the present. A minute till midnight. With tears in his eyes he
walked over to edge of the building. This was it. He was doing this. Thirty seconds.
He crouched down, readying himself. Ten seconds. He closed his eyes and quietly
counted down to one.
There was no turning back now, he thought when he got to two. And at one, he jumped
off the top of a five story building to his death. It was over instantly when his
body hit the ground.
