Mourn Me 3.0Chapter 3: The Good Die Young
Stay calm Adam, stay calm
"Shh, it's alright, honey, it's okay," I cooed, rocking my little sister comfortingly back and forth as she clung to me for dear life. She was whimpering and wiping her nose on my bare chest, choking me a bit as her thin arms wrapped around my neck. I scooped her up and bounced on the ball of my back foot, cupping the back of her head as the curls tangled up in my fingers. I was sure to mind the rings that graced my appendages, taking note not to get the delicate locks snagged on the glittery jewels. Blindly walking over to my vanity, I fumbled around for the flashlight that was in the prepped box. Feeling the rubber grip, I snatched it up, quickly pulling it out and flipping the switch on. When I breathed in, a thousand tiny, electrically sparked air particles filled my lungs. A bunch of illuminated molecules jumped in the air in the path of artificial light, followed by another surge and a lighti

last chapter! hope you guys enjoy!
I needed to clear my mind, needed to calm myself down. Get away. Go to peace. And my favorite place to do that was The Café. Some very strong caffeinated coffee and maybe some regret junk food will let me collect myself enough to talk to Tommy and explain what happened. I finally realized that there was something wrong with me, something that I had been denying for way too long. It wasn't normal to have such vivid flashbacks, and especially as frequent as I have them and how quickly they are triggered. Something was definitely physically incorrect with the way my brain was functioning. I wanted to tell him about it first since he was the one I hurt because of it. I still can't fathom that I did that. It seriously made me think about how screwed up I was. In reality, I don't deserve his compassion and forgiveness for what I did. But if he doesn't accept me back, I really do not have a reason to

Chapter 1: We All Need Prep
Things have been pretty rough lately. Work has been slow, and money is tight. Maria's seventh birthday is tomorrow, and I have to work a ton of overtime just to get her that bike she wants and a birthday cake. I admire her in the fact that she can find happiness in the small things and doesn't complain when she can't go do some of the bigger things her friends can. She still doesn't know how in danger we are of losing the house, however. I don't want her to worry and I think she is just too young to understand what we're going through. Ever since
"Adam!" Maria called to me, disturbing my train of thought. I was writing in a journal that I kept with me, at least scribbling something down on a page every night. When my mother was in her ill state, she told me to buy her a diary, and I did, so that she could write what she felt and what was happening, I assumed. Every night when I would walk into her room

The school days were pretty boring without Tommy there, even if I had only seen him three times a day. I was silent for the most part (except when I would run into Rose or Allyson, of course), but everyone else kept buzzing about and spreading gossip to every person they passed, it seemed. I didn't usually get myself into stuff like that, but it appears that I am a part of it. When they would whisper, and if they saw me, it wasn't the normal scowl of disgust (most of the time), but instead it was a weak, sorry-smile or soft eyes of pity.
There was only one way to get to the bottom of this, straight to the rumor-queen herself: Rose.
When it was lunchtime, I quickly found Rose and pulled her aside from the crowds.
"Dude, what's up?" she asked, taking her arm from my grip.
"Have you heard any new gossip lately?" I said, looking around at people's faces as they walked by with questioning stares. I never really caug
