Russian Roulette

August 27, 2008
By Shannon Rockett, Lake Ridge, VA

Gun in hand.
Ready to aim.
Should I shoot?

A click
or
a strike.
Should I shoot?

Gun is poised.
Finger at trigger.
I must be crazy...
But
Should I shoot?

My sense screams, "Put it down!"
"Pull the trigger!" shrieks my heart.
Should I shoot?

I shot.

Turns out he liked me too.

I wrote this when I was debating whether or not I should tell this guy that I liked him. Lucky for me, I was right. I hope you will be, too. <3
