I never thought it could happen to me. You hear about things like this all the time on the news, but never truly believe until you are looking at it. For me, death was a twenty-eight year old who lived in my mother’s building on the fifth floor. I never paid much attention to him, but I realize now that he watched me.

I’d visit Mom on the weekends and he’d be there. They were friends. Looking back, I see how weird it is. He was always near, watching and waiting for me to be alone. I don’t understand how he was so patient, but there was a lot I didn’t know when I was alive.

I remember I tried to open my mouth, but it began to fill with water and I started to panic. It was cold all around me and I couldn’t see anything. My hands were behind my back. Tied. “It’s too late for me” I thought, “I’m a goner.” And I was right. My body suddenly let go, and I was free.
