To Whom It May Concern:
If you are reading this, then that means that you have noticed I am missing. I couldn't stay here, I needed to leave this world. I was not needed. If you go into the bathroom, you will find me. If you are wondering if you could've stopped me, the answer is no. Nothing you could've said or done would have changed my mind. Goodbye forever.
"No, no, no!" I cried. I ran to the bathroom, and sure enough, there was Avalon sprawled out on the bathroom floor, her wrists bleeding profusely.
My heart shattered, my eyes welled up with tears, and I couldn't breathe. It pained me to see the girl I love so lifeless and frail.
I picked her up and held her fragile body close to mine. I could hear her faint heartbeat. I sighed with relief. She was still alive, but just barely.
I took out my phone and dialled 911. They said they would be here right away.
I saw another note on the sink. It read:
You were my best friend, but what you didn't know was that I loved you. I loved you more than a friend.
What? She was in love with me? I feel so stupid for not telling her I was in love with her too. I continued on reading.
You were my everything. I don't want you to mourn my death. I want you to move on with your life. I want you to fall in love, get married, have kids, and maybe even name one of your kids after me.
I can't move on. My life wouldn't be complete with you in it.
Make something out of your life, just promise me you won't forget me. Promise you won't forget the girl named Avalon Marie Taylors.
I could never forget you Avalon.
From then on, everything was a blur.
The excruciating long wait in the hospital. The many pained tears, until the doctor came out.
I looked st him and all he said was, "Time of death: 5:37 P.M."
From then on it was funeral arrangements, last goodbyes, and depression. The only girl I've ever loved is dead.
Third Person's POV
Drew never recovered from Avalon's death. He couldn't move on.
Drew continued on with his life, but he never got married because he felt like he could never love anyone more than he loved Avalon.
He tried dating, but he could never stop himself from comparing them to Avalon.
It felt like he had lost his soul. His eyes used to be like the ocean. They held so many secrets. But now, they are like a dark abyss.
Drew ended his life with a gunshot wound to the heart at the age of 24, seven years after Avalon died.
His last words were, "I'm coming Avalon."
Sadly, Drew never got reunited with Avalon.
He spends his time at his gravesite. He was buried beside Avalon. He hopes that one day, Avalon will visit her grave and they will be together once again.
That day never came.
He is now separated from Avalon for eternity, and all because of a suicide note.
