May the Pain Never Stop

The cold of winter settles upon this island in the sea

The phone rings.

i know i shouldn't answer

i know i shouldn't answer

I answer

It's her. She's down on the island. Her 17 year old cousin was found hung in the closet. Right after Julz had threatened to do the same.

So she wants to spend the night here, instead of in the house her cousin died in.

I can't deny her that.


she gets here at 9:30pm. Leaves for the funeral at 8am.

Call me a prick, but I never signed up for this.
