Herald was a nice and happy young boy. His parents were together, popular, and overall fit and good looking.
This was until that day, it was a Wednesday after noon at school and herald finally worked up the courage to ask out his crush sally.
Sally was a pretty girl and worried more on her education more than being popular or even worried about make up she was just naturally beautiful.
Anyway after the bell herald ran and caught up to her. I will never forget that, when he asked her on a date she simply rejected him and he ran off crying.
All his friends were there including me and you know this kinda thing is embarrassing especially in middle school.
The next day Harald didn't show up to school so after the bell I went to his house to drop off his homework but when I got there and I will never forget that look he had on his face
when I walked in he had a gun to his head and I quickly swatted it out of his hand and when he looked up his eyes were wet with tears and all of his stuff was on the floor broken and torn
to shreds except for a little hand drawn picture in a frame high above his TV. It was a picture of sally with the words I love you written in blood.
He looked at me with wide eyes and asked for me to hand him the gun I could tell how sad he was and I knew it was the best thing to do.
I will never forget the happiness in his eyes when I handed him the gun. He put it up to his head and pulled the trigger. I will never forget what happened next.
His phone went off, it was a message from sally.
It read: hey, I'm sorry for embarrassing you in front of your friends yesterday and it was unfair of me not to give you a chance and if your free I would like to get together soon.
