becca was misunderstood. by everyone. teachers, family, friends. most of the time she sat way from the crowd, singeling herself out. many days during school vacation or on the weekends, becca would stay in her room. she saw nothing wrong with that, however her parents often harrassed her about it, reffering to her bedroom as her 'cave', asking why she never went out with friends, or even if she had any. they would also ask becca what she was doing in her room. multiple times they would ask if she was doing drugs, drinking, or taking innapropriate pictures. being an honnor student, this type of behavior was completely out of line for becca. after being accused of it once or twice was fine, but after the 13th, 20th, 27th time, she had had enough. all of this was unbearable. little by little, becca became depressed. her family noticed her lack of energy and one night during dinner, becca was spaced out not eating her food. 'something is seriously wrong with you. one night, while we are all sleeping, your going to kill us all becca. i can just see it! cant you see her killing the family too, honey?' becca's mother said to her father. the two laughed together enjoying the pain they wre putting their daughter through. one day, while home alone, becca took a walk to the hospital to visit her sick uncle knowing he only had a few days left. while he was laying unconcious, she told him all her problems. before she left, becca whispered to him, 'when you leave this sick world, and see papa in hevan, you tell him i love and miss him so much. see you both soon.' the next week was very busy with the wake, funeral, and her high school graduation party. becca had almost no alone time. at her party, becca greeted everyone and then went upstairs, away from the crowd, to her 'cave'. after an hour of her absence, becca's mother went upstairs in anger to search for her daughter. how rude it was to just leave the guests at her ownparty! after knocking on the door of becca's room a few times, her mother ran out of patience and angrily pushed the door open. 'BECCA ROSE I CANT BELIEVE HOW RU-' her mother screamed in fury. that is, until she found becca's body laying lifeless on the floor with a note in her hand. stepping carefully towards becca as if being gentel would bring her back to life, she carefully slid the note out of her hand and read it. 'so i didnt kill the family, i killed myself. best wishes for you and dad to live happily ever after. your daughter, becca'.

so fairytale endings arent for real life, except for those who deserve it. becca lives happily ever after because she no longer has to deal with her family accusing her of drugs, drinking or other wrong actions, and no one to stare her down or give her dirty looks whiile passing her in the hallways, and no trash talk to ignore. she couldnt be happier to be reunited with her uncle, grandfather, and the rest of her family in the after life. this was worth the torture, this was worth the pain. because this is the best time of her life.
