Then one night I got a text on my phone from him and instead of making my heart sore like I had hoped that it would it made my heart sink. The text was one that I was dreading and didn't even know that I was dreading to get but I was. "I'm no longer dying....Kelly I'm all ready dead....Good Bye..." I cried and grabbed my phone quickly and dialed his number hoping he would pick up but I got no answer like usual. I wanted to run out of my house and to his house but I didn't because of what he said what I had heard so I stayed up that night crying in my bed. I was just praying that what ever he was doing was a lie and that he would show up to school again the next day with the same big smile on his face that he had wore before this whole mess happened.
In stead when I went to school I saw everyone dressed in black with sad looks on there faces. Classes were cut short for an assembly set up in the gym and I knew right away it was not good news. The principal took his place on the stage in front of everyone in the school with teary blood shot eyes he cleared his throat to speak to us all. "Yesterday we lost a student and a part of our family. At 12:27am yesterday Alex Parker committed suicide leaving nothing but a single note behind and no expiation as to why he did what he did." There were so many crying kids int he gym on that day I remember how my legs just seemed to give out on me and I started to cry and endless stream of tears. The Principal went on to read the note which only had one question that I had come to hate so much. "What is my reason to live?" The kids all started to whisper to each other confused as to what he could have meant but then I finally understood what he was asking of me all along.
