One day I was by myself at a park just walking around to try and clear my mind.
When all of a sudden this girl comes up to me and asks me if everything is okay, I didn't even realize it but the look on my face wasn't a pleasant one.
I just responded with oh yeah everything is okay, I'm just trying to get some things off my mind.
She offered to listen while we walked,
so I figured why not I'll probably never see this person again in my life and she was nice enough to come up to me and even offer to listen to what was on my mind.
As we walked I talked, which was different for me because I'm normally the one listening and adding a note here and there, but it was the other way around this time.
As I was talking to her I realized that I was slowly starting to feel a bit better, which I was kinda happy about, and before I knew it it was starting to get dark.
So I offered to walk her to her car and we can continue just me talking or we can both talk about whatever.
So we just started chatting about random things,
and even though it wasn't the longest conversation it was a nice conversation to have to ease my mind off of the things I was worrying about before.
Not to long and we reached her car, we said our goodbyes and I walked over to my car to head home.
As I'm driving I can't help but notice I'm worrying and hoping this girl is okay and makes it home safe. I can't tell if I was falling for her, or if it was just me worrying.
As I get home I throw my keys on my night stand and set my purse down and get ready for a shower.
After my shower I change my music to something more soothing and lay down, eventually falling asleep...
A few years have passed and now it's my 19th birthday, as I remember this memory I mention it to my best friend and tell her the name of the person,
and my friend gets this look of sadness and shock, but tells me that this girl has been dead for over 10 years.
I can't believe her, it's only been a little over 2 years since I've talked to her, but my friend pulls up the article from the paper,
and the date confirms that it's been slightly over 10 years. I don't know what to make of this memory, or if it even happened, but it feels so real that I can't believe its fake.
