If I Die Young....

Tuesday, September 28, 2010
I could feel his grip tightening around my neck. “ If you’re going to kill me just do it already.” I breathed. It wasn’t like me to give up with out a fight but, I was limited on options. “ I can’t.” He said, breathing into my ear. “ Why?” I asked, my voice trembling. I didn’t want to die. I had so much more I could be doing with my life. When you think you’re life is going to end, that’s when everything hits you. What if I would have done this differently? This, meaning life. What if I wasn’t so rebellious, what if I actually cared. I could have got out of this town. I could have done something with my life. I could have had some sort of future. Now, my future was slipping away. I felt it fading, and if his grip became tighter I would lose it. It was getting harder for me to breath. “Why?” I choked out again, breathless. He loosened his grip around my neck and I gasped out for air. “Because you Ellory Graham, aren’t like any girl I’ve ever met. And I’m in love with you.”
