Summery: Jealousy will drive me mad. A
”You can’t leave me here!” I cry, grabbing at her shirt. She looks at me, then looks at the black boy next to her, smiles and leans in- kissing him with a small passion. My stomach flips, I want to throw up. Jealousy will drive me mad.
She turns back to me “”Yes I can” She grins, popping some gum into her mouth “”You’ll be fine” She pushes a stick of gum into my hand, wiggles her fingers and turns around, taking the boys hand. I drop the gum.
“”Evie!” I call after her “”Evie!” She doesn’t turn around. I push my hands over my eyes; end for a moment a stand on the en of my thoughts. If I the world can’t see me, I can’t see the world. It doesn’t work. She doesn’t run back. She left me here. I’m still here. Stuck in downtown, music thumping all around me, drunks roam around me, shouting at each other. A police siren blares somewhere, and a fight erupts at my size.

I start to run again, running as fast as I can, running through the red district, running to the edge of town, running. An arm grabs me from behind, I spin around, ready to scream, but my breath stops in my throat. It was Evie.
“”Hey” She smiles, pushing a pill under my nose; I take it into my mouth. She takes my hand “”Hey, Babe. Have a good time?”
I hold back tears, running my tongue around the powdery pill, swallowing it willingly.
Anything to take me away from this, this life where everything hates me.
