“But if anyone asks, tell them we’re fine” were the last words she said to me. Even when we had had an argument, I still thought that we’d be together at the end. I can’t believe that she’s gone. I used to think it didn’t matter if I didn’t see her for a few days, I knew I’d see her soon, but now, that won’t happen. It can’t happen… ever. No matter what I do, I can never go back. If only I hadn’t run out on her. If only I hadn’t had to work. Then maybe she wouldn’t be dead. Maybe she wouldn’t have left me. I miss her so much. I know we were just friends, nothing more, but she was my best friend. She knew the real me, not the mask that I put on for everyone else to see. I thought at first, that she was just like the others, but when it came down to it, she just really got me. She knew what I was thinking, even before I said anything. I couldn’t say that she always knew what was best for me, but most of the time she did. And now, she’s gone.
