We walked down the hall towards our buses. I hoped she would listen to me. Then,
when i came to school the next day, i knew she hadn't.
I walked into the classroom, hoping to see Jan and talk to her again. I sat down in
my seat, right by the window, and looked around at the classroom. Mrs. McGuire had
just put up our art. It was our names and we had to make the letters into things we
like. Also, she had all kinds of posters. Most of them said stuff about
responsibility and religion.
Soon, everyone was in class. They all took their seats and Mrs. McGuire started to
call names for attendance. When she called out Janice's name and no one answered, she
asked if anyone knew where she was. No one knew, so we went on with class. Later that
day, Jan came to school. She was pale, and still had a hospital bracelet on. Luckily,
no one noticed, excpet me.
After class, I caught up with Jan and tried to talk to her. Again, i grabbed her
wrist. There was a new cut on her wrist.
"What did you do!?" I yelled. "Did you cut yourself and just let it bleed!?"
"Yes! My mom came home drunk and hit me again last night." Tears welled in her eyes
and started rolling down her face. "I just wanted to get out of her way."
"Killing yourself isn't going to make you feel any better!"
"I just thought it would make her feel better!" And with that, she ran away.
"Jan!" I called out to her, but she was gone.
"Why is she doing this to herself?" I thought.
After school, I went to Janice's house. I was hoping to talk to her. Her mom answered
the door, she seemed to be okay.
"Um... Ms Kingson, is Janice home?"
"No, sorry. She went to the park with a girl named Amanda."
"Oh, okay. Thanks Ms Kingson."
So, i set off for the park. As I was walking to the park, i thought about Amanda. she
was the school slut. she slept around, and rumour was that she did drugs. I was
wondering why Janice was hanging out with her. I kept walking, not even noticing the
fact that it was starting to get dark or that more people were walking in the
Before i even got to the park, I saw Amanda and Janice talking to some man in a large
coat. He handed them a bag and then walked away. Janice looked over and saw me. She
whispered something then walked over to me.
"Hi Vanessa!" she said, a little too cheerfully.
"Why are you so happy. You seemed really mad at school."
"Yah, well, she's had some time to... relax." Amanda answered, putting emphasis on
all right, thanks for reading everyone, but i gotta go clean out my cat boxes. i'll
write more soon!
