*Simon's POV*

10:30 AM

Everyone stared at me. They all looked at me. I felt anxious and distressed. I had no idea what was going on.

I saw the police inside the school, talking to the principal.

"What's going on?" I asked one of my friends.

"I don't know, the police came this morning. They were talking about a suicide. I don't know anything else." He said.

I immediately start thinking about my friends. I hope they're okay.

But then I get a panic thought, that made my heart race fast.

Sunnie.

I turned around and started running to the history classroom. She is supposed to have her history lesson now.

I peeked through the door.
She isn't there.

I start to panic even more.
I don't want it to be her.
It can't be her.

No!

"Dude, you look crazy, calm down." My other friend said

I sigh and continued biting my nails.
I waited for 20 minutes. We are supposed to have our English class now.

Please God, tell me she'll be there.

I sat down at my usual desk, staring at hers.

She's not here. I'm so scared.
I hope she's just skipping class.

The teacher came in, looking distressed. Two policemen came in with her.

"Class, I don't think I can be on our lesson today. Something happened with one of our students and I have to talk to the policemen."

"What happened?" One of the girls asked.

She looked at the police officers who were nodding their heads that she can tell us.

"Well, as many of you heard..ummm.. Our student Sunnie Mellow comitted suicide few days ago." She said

I felt my heart drop.

I couldn't breathe.

No, this can't be true.

This is a nightmare.

Please.

I start to breathe heavily, trying not to panic. The others were in slight shock, or showing numness and no emotion.

"She was found in the river, as she drowned herself." She said

The class had thousands of questions whilst I kept silent, still trying to process all this.

I can't. It feels like I'll need the whole eternity to realise that she's gone. Not here anymore.

"Class, calm down. You're free from my class today due to solving this." She said. Everyone put their bags on and talked about it on their way out.

In that moment, I didn't care about the others. I wanted to speak up.

"I'm sorry to interrupt, bt did she leave any letter or something?" I said as most people left the class

"She did. And what is your name?" One of the police officers asked me, taking notes.

"Simon Minter." I said

"And you were her friend."

"I guess you could say that."

"Come with us to the principals office." He said and they started walking as I followed them

I walk and blankly stare, trying not to cry.

All the memories of her keep flashing through my mind. I don't feel very well after I remember the last time I spoke to her.

I didn't even get the chance to say my final goodbye.
