Who Killed The Homecoming Queen?

Tuesday, September 21, 2010
Then Principal Anderson leaned back down toward the microphone for the umpteenth time this evening. I was ready for this part to be over. I was ready to go back to dancing the night away with the man I loved. I was ready to tell him that I loved him.“And the 2010 homecoming queen for Warren G. Harding High is,” again a slight pause.I squeezed my eyes shut. Please don’t say my name. Please don’t say my name. “Megan White!” Oh, thank God. Adam shot me a look and I shrugged. Megan squealed out in delight as she walked over to get crowned. I knew she was going to win. Girls like her always won. And if Katie was here, she would have definitely won. Principal Anderson put the crown on her, and Molly came over with the sash. The next series of events seemed to happen in slow motion for me. I didn’t really know what to make of it. Because just as Megan White turned to face the crowd in the gym, that’s when Katie Halston’s body fell down from the rafters, hanging by a rope, knocking Megan White off of the stage. And that’s when all the chaos broke out.
