My world is imploding, my head exploding, my stomach heaving, attempting to expel anything that could possibly be left. This morning I had parents. We ate breakfast together, we shared stories, we laughed. And now? Nothing. I have nothing. No one to turn to, no shoulder to cry on. I see people around me, all faceless, all nameless. Where do I go? There's no home for me now, no family to look for.
I wander aimlessly, as if sleepwalking. I end up next to a railroad, stretching infinitely in either direction. Bright lights race towards me, an earsplitting rumbling following: A train has come to rescue me. But doubt begins to cloud my mind. Do I leave all I've ever known? Do I leave my future? The train's almost past, so I take a chance.

I jump.
