I never thought I'd be this girl. Not in a million years. But here I am, holding the smooth, shiny, silver in my shaking hand.

 

It doesn't have to be this way, a voice in my head tells me. The voice is right, I realize as a tear falls down my pale cheek. It doesn't have to be this way.

 

It needs to be.

 

Just as the silver touches my skin, I hear my name. I turn around, face- and body - empty.

 

"Ocean," Drew says, voice trembling. "I- I am so sorry."

 

The blade drops from my hand as I arch an eyebrow at my former best friend.

 

He's changed, I notice. His hair is shorter, no longer flipping at his ears. He wears jeans and a flannel, his normal attire of basketball shorts and a hoodie gone. The gold dog tag I got him last year no longer hangs aroung his neck. I wonder where he put it, or if he threw it away.

 

He thinks it's all about him. It's not. He may be one of the reasons, that's for sure. But I've got ninety- nine other reasons.
