I stand on the other side of the six inch glass that separates me from him. I can see him, but he can't see me. He smiles sinisterly, knowing I'm on the other side of the glass.

I watch as the guards strap him down to a metal bed. I watch the heart moniter, as it moves. Knowing he's still alive.

I watch as the stick an IV in the vein of his left wrist. I watch as the liquid moves through the tubes, into him. I bite my lip, knowing it's his last moments of life. And I hope he regrets every, living, girl he ever killed, or raped. I hope he burns in Hell.

I watch as he slowly closes his eyelids, and the heart moniter forms a straight line.

He's dead.


Out of my life.

Can't hurt anyone ever again.


I sigh, relieved, yet, disturbed. I feel bad that he still had to die. I firm hand, grips my shoulder, and gives a reassuring squeeze. I turn around, and look up into Tray's worried eyes. I smile slightly, but it only lasts a moment, before a tear rolls down my cheek. And more follow.

Then, he's holding me in his arms, as I choke on my shuddering sobs. He strokes my hair, and whispers soothing things.

"Shhh," he says. I shake my head, burying my head into his muscular chest.

"I'm," I have to pause, as I choke again on my sobs. "I'm so sorry-"

He puts his finger to my lips, and says, "I love you too," and kisses me.

It's been a while since I've felt that kiss. And I realize, how long I've longed for it, and missed it. The way his warm lips seem to form to mine, the way he hungrily kisses me, with such force and passion.

I pull away, biting my lip. I nervously laugh.

"Tray, I'm moving." I say, looking into his eyes. He's taken a back, and his mouth forms and O.

"What?" He asks, bewildered. Another tear rolls down my cheek.

"I, I'm moving. Because, my parents don't want to stay here any more, and neither did I. When we broke up, I couldn't handle it anymore. Being here, going to the high school, going down the road I was kidnapped." I shake my head.

"I can't, I just...can't." I say.

Tray looks down at our intertwined fingers. He takes his other hand, and strokes my cheek. I lean into his warm, soothing, hand.

I look up at him, and he's looking down at me, his eyes softening. He sighs.

"Well, since we're telling each other news," his voice trails off. "I got accepted into a college, in Miami, Florida.." He says searching my eyes.

I nod my head, and force myself to smile. "Congratulations," I say trying to sound excited, but it sounds too forced.

He smiles, a real smile. "Oh, I almost forgot!" He says, as he searches the pocket of his Northface. He pulls out a small, black, velvet box. "Will you still marry me?" He says, getting down on one knee.

He opens the velvet box, and I cover my mouth with my hands and gasp. It was a beautiful ring.

It was a rounded diamond, with a silver band. It had little gems surrounding the diamond, and I looked closer. They were my birthstone.

My heart starts to pound, and I realize, he's been waiting for an answer.

"I know, this isn't the best time, or place," he says. "But, I was going to ask you tonight," He says, smiling up at me.

I smile, and frantically nod my head. He slips the ring on my finger. He wraps his arms around my waist, and kisses me as everyone cheers.

My life is starting to mend back together.
