Starting a New Chapter (Part Ten, Finale)

Girl with head in hands

Lucy and Nate set out to find Brittany. They decide to go to the park. They call out for Brittany but can’t find her. They decide to go search the woods and split up. A few minutes of searching Lucy comes across something and screams.

Nate goes running towards Lucy’s screams, “What’s wrong?”

“It’s…. It’s…” Lucy can’t get her word out of her mouth for she is very shocked and instead points to the limp body of who she thinks is Brittany. Nate gasps.

“What do we do?” Nate asks.

“I don’t know do we call the police?”

“We should do that. I’ll do that and you check if Brittany is still breathing and try to wake her up,”

“Okay,” Lucy replies.

Lucy tries to wake Brittany up and a few minutes later Brittany wakes up. “WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE! YOU SHOULDN’T BE HERE!” Brittany screams.

“We’re trying to help you!”

“WHAT DO YOU MEAN! AFTER WHAT YOU SAID TO ME YESTERDAY YOU’RE TRYING TO HELP ME? YOU OF ALL PEOPLE HELP ME! DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH IT HURT ME! I FINALLY FELT LIKE I HAD FOUND SOMEONE LIKE ME AND YOU BETRAY ME! DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT I’VE BEEN THROUGH?”

“No. I’m sorry if I hurt you yesterday I just didn’t like the way you were always acting and wanted you to get help,” Lucy says starting to tear up.

“WELL, IF YOU REALLY WANTED ME TO GET HELP. YOU WOULD HAVE STAYED BESIDE ME AND HELPED ME ALONG THE WAY AND NOT STORM OFF AND MAKE ME THE BAD GUY.”

“Tell me what happened. I want to understand where you come from. And I can only do that if I know your story. So, tell me what happened.”

“WHY WOULD I TELL YOU THAT! LIKE YOU WOULD UNDERSTAND. I thought you were just like me and took you in because you reminded me so much of my former self. But now that I’ve met you, you aren’t anything like me. You’re always so confident in yourself and do what ever you want and aren’t afraid of what others think of you. If I saw you a few years ago, I would have longed to be like you. I needed someone back then, but didn’t have anyone. Do you know how lonely I felt? When I finally got into middle school, I decided I would change and forget about the past, but when I saw you everything came rushing back to me. I knew I couldn’t let what happened to me happen to you. But yesterday in the cafeteria, it drew the line and I couldn’t take it anymore because everything came back to me and I felt lonely again and thought no one cares about me and no one would notice if I went missing and my parents would be glad I didn’t come home because they absolutely despise me.” Brittany sobbed.

“You know I felt like that on the first day of school. I felt that I didn’t want to exist anymore and that the world would be better without me, but you held out a helping hand for me and I felt I had a real meaning in life. I hope you can find that meaning in life too. I’ll help you through everything. I’ll be your helping hand this time. Let’s start a new chapter together.”

***Remember that you mean something to this world and that without you it wouldn’t be complete. If you feel that your life isn’t worth living or you are a burden to people remember that there is always going to be someone who needs you as much as you need them. If you are feeling depressed or suicidal ask for help. there will always be someone that is willing to help you. Surround yourself with people who care about you and accept you for who you really are. Don’t try and change yourself to be loved but be loved by people who make you feel safe and yourself.
