All names in the story have been changed to protect the identity of the characters.   With balls of hair in Claire's fists, hot, salty tears ran down her cheeks hitting the pillow in her lap. She felt completely hopeless. No person in her mind could help the pain go away. To make her go away…...

Once a year we get the same, fairly useless presentation about suicide prevention. The same animated powerpoint with a voice over about what to do and who to talk to if you’re feeling suicidal drones on for ten minutes while no one pays attention.

About 25 of us girls stand either haphazardly around the field or in the line to kick during our game of kickball, attempting to pretend as if we actually care about the game we were beginning to play. Though many of us were grumpy with the looming reality that our turn to kick would soon arrive, we s...

My graduation day is approaching. The last day, the proof that I did, in fact, survive. I never expected this day to approach so quickly.

I never liked you. For you, I have always felt extremes. One or the other. Never anywhere in between. I remember going to a basketball game in late February to see you with your friends; I don’t like basketball. Even then I didn’t like you, but charm is a wondrous thing that you are full ...
