''Riiing....Riiing....Riiing." The sound of my phone woke me up.
Who the hell would be calling this late? I grabbed the phone from
my dresser. It was Conner. A smile flashed onto my face as I saw
the picture ID i took of us when we went to the Pearl Jam concert.
We were the best of friends. We were all we had since our parents
weren't involved much in our lives. Our families were alot alike.
They were always on drugs, partying every night, gambling and
throwing away the familie's money. It was sad, really. We were
always loners at school until we met. But we had eachother and
that's all that mattered. But I held a secret...a big secret. I
was in love with Conner, madly. I never was exactly sure how he
felt though. I think he sees us as good friends, and that's all. I
wouldn't dare mess that up, so I kept silent about my secret for
the past three years. ''Hey! What's crackin' Conner?" "Shay..." I
could hear it in his voice; something was wrong. "What's wrong?
Are you ok?" I was worried. Conner often had mental breakdowns and
contimplated suicide. He always called me and I would talk him
through it, and everything was alright, but this time sounded
different. "...My mom died." I heard the sadness in his voice. Even
though he practically hated her for all the pain he put her
through, he still loved her deep inside." "Oh my god... Shit, I'm
so sorry. What happened?" I heard him cry a little bit. "...Jay
came home drunk...and got violent. He...he beat her up and then
stabbed her 6 times. I wittnesed it all. I tried to stop it, I did.
But he came after me and I had to get out of there. I called the
cops...but it was too late.'' "Conner, I'm so sorry. Are you ok?
Where are you?" Hearing him tell me that made me sick. That couldve
been Conner that was killed. I was still horribly sad though. His
pain was mine. "I'm fine. Jay punched me a couple times, nothing
out of the ordinary. I'm at the hospital. They're making me stay
here because I might have a concussion." "Im comming down there,
ok? I'll be there in 10 minutes." "Alright, thanks. I really need
you right now. See you in 10."
