The accident wasn’t her fault. That’s what she keeps telling herself. Well, she didn’t mean to do it at least. It was 5PM at a local grocery store. Julie Adams was standing second in line for the cash register when the door opened. The joyous atmosphere quickly changed to a gloomy feel. It was dark outside because of the dark clouds. Hail bounced off of the ground, some of it now landing inside. A woman dressed in black clothes was standing in the doorway.
She was holding a gun.
She had a name tag on her shirt, the name scratched off. But Julie knew her name all too well. The person in the doorway was her ex...
Two weeks ago there was a fire in Northwater High school. Julie and Robin were partners in a science practicum. Robin secretly took chemicals she wasn’t supposed to use out of the cabinet to see what would happen if she mixed them. The school was evacuated. 14 people were seriously injured. Julie did nothing to stop her. She just watched and smiled. The teacher got a way worse punishment than she did. Her parents had to pay a large sum of money. Two days later Julie caught Robin doing drugs, they broke up.
Robin didn’t recognise Julie, she didn’t look at anyone in the store. She walked right up to the cash register and forced the employee to give her all of the money. Julie was frozen. There was so much going on. As Robin was about to run out of the store you could hear police sirens in the distance. One of the people in the store jumped in front of her. She shot them. People started screaming, some people even threw things at her. Angered Robin started blindly shooting around her. Before Julie knew what happened she was already on the ground, blood coming out of her chest. Robin escaped, but she could have stopped her. Simply shouting her name would have caught her attention. She would recognise Julie. She could’ve stalled. But she didn’t. She could’ve stopped a disaster. But she didn’t. Just like last time, people got hurt because of her. She slowly closed her eyes.
It was all her fault.
