12 stories. That's how high up I was looking down at the miniature world below me. I closed my eyes and let the wind blow my long brown hair in all directions. The sounds of the city echoing in my ears. I opened my eyes and just stared at the darkness beyond all of that. Am I really going to do this? Everything that had ever been said about me repeated itself in my head. All of the things I had experienced appeared in my mind. Tears stinging at my eyes, I looked down at what I was going to soon be colliding with. The sound of the metal door I had come through when I came to the roof caused me to crane my neck quickly. It had just occurred to me that I had been seen. Someone knows that I was planning to end everything I had come to know. He had long brown hair- close to the same shade as mine- big brown eyes, and wore a baggy sweatshirt and dark jeans. We both just kind of stood there staring for what seemed like forever but was only about a minute or two, until he spoke. "You planning on jumping?" He said in a somewhat sarcastic tone. I pushed what he had just said aside,"What are you doing up here?" I replied with. "I work here, so I have a key. I come up her to think sometimes. What about you? How'd you get up here?" I couldn't exactly tell him I snuck up here to jump off so I made something up. "Yeah me too. I also like coming up here to look out at the city." After I said that I realized how absolutely fake it sounded, but I didn't really care. I looked down at my hands to avoid making eye contact. "You must be new I haven't seen you around. So what were you doing standing on that ledge anyways. You could've fallen off." I searched my thoughts for another lie. "Yeah I started working here a couple weeks ago." I lied. "I was just trying to get a better look I guess. I've done it before so it's not like I just threw myself up there not knowing what I was getting into. Besides, heights don't scare me." This one seemed a little bit more convincing but I wasn't really sure. I looked up at him. I didn't really realize how handsome he was at first but now I definitely did. He kept trying to catch my eyes with his but I continued to look away. "I see." He said in a somewhat confused voice. The air suddenly became cold, and without even noticing I was doing it, I shivered. He took off his sweatshirt and offered it to me. "Here." He smiled and again without thinking, I smiled too.
