A girls boyfriend was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Twitter: @feelingafraid please follow :)

My breaths were slow, deep, calm. I looked down at my small, young hands, tears streaming down my face. What had I done? That question would haunt me for the rest of my life. I got up slowly, dragging my feet behind me. As I scrubbed and scrubbed at my perfectly clean hands, I realized soap and water wouldn't erase what I had done. Nothing would.

Going back to his living room, I noticed how beautiful Matt really was, even as a cold corpse. Marks from my hands were still around his neck, puddles from my tears of regret right next to him. Why had I killed him? Why? I didn't know the answer. He was probably in the wrong place at the wrong time. I needed to take out my anger, and he was right there. I kissed my now-dead boyfriend on the lips and said my silent goodbyes.

Dialing 911, I raised the knife to my throat, ready to end this all as soon as they knew where to go.

\"911, how may I help you?\"

\"I've just killed my boyfriend and I'm dead next.\"

\"Ma'am, you need t-\"

I hung up, making sure I had given them a minute while I was on the phone to track the call, and sliced my neck. There was pain, then nothing but darkness.
