In the beginning
In the beginning, everything was great, wonderful even. Jessica and Justin started dating. The perfect couple, getting shipped since grade 1. They’re finally together at last. It’s November 10th, 2017, a school day, the day Jessica said yes to Justin. The last time we would see Jessica single, but we didn’t know that at the time, now I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s go back to November 10th, 2017. Jessica always liked Justin and Justin always liked her. Jessica was always cheerful, she always wore a smile, she was smart as hell, she was one of my best friends and like me she was an outcast. Justin was always everywhere, he wasn’t an outcast but wasn’t popular either, he was always talking to everyone and his best friend was my twin brother, Jax. Now you’re probably wondering what my name is, my name is Julia. Now back to Jessica and Justin. November 10th, 2017 went down in everyone’s calendars as the day the perfect couple became a couple. Jessica and Justin were the cutest couple ever, me, Jax, a guy named Austin and a girl named Ashley made a bet back in grade 2 that Jessica and Justin would get together by grade 8. Now I know we shouldn’t bet on people and their life but it was fun. My and Jessica’s social circle is something you are going to need to know, so here’s our social circle:
Jessica’s and Julia’s social circle
1) Julia (12)
2) Jessica (12)
3) Ashley (12)
4) Austin (12)
5) Justin (12)
6) Jax (12)
Now who’s all together? Well, me and Austin are dating, Ashley and Jax are dating and now Jessica and Justin. Ashley and Austin are twins to. Now Jessica’s dad is in jail with my and Jax’s dad and Austin’s and Ashley’s dad. All of us but Justin have known each other since 1½ years old, we also had a rough past, but Justin he came in kindergarten and he has both parents, that love him unlike us. So, with Jessica and Justin dating there was finally a little light in Jessica’s life.
November 10th, 2017
November 10th, 2017 is a day I remember like it was yesterday. The day started like any other, it was cold but not to cold and I had a feeling that something good was going to happen. we started the day with French which was normal, with kids yelling, shouting out and not listening or staying in their seats. After French we had social studies, were we listened to our teacher. We had first break after French and social studies. First break was the same has usual, we all went to our lunchrooms, which was me and Austin in Mr. Icemen’s classroom, Jessica and Ashley in Mr. Sharkners classroom and Justin and Jax in Ms. Marks’ classroom. We always went outside for 20 minutes after eating for 20 minutes. While outside we played truth or dare like always and after a while our teacher, Ms. Shamarker, started playing with us. It was fun playing truth or dare with Ms. Shamarker because she was dared to say what she thought about our curriculum and how she really felt about some of us kids. After first break we had gym, we played basketball and after gym I started to feel like nothing good was going to happen. language came after gym, we were working on short stories. I was working with Jessica and Ashley. The story we were writing was about a girl with a secret admirer. It wasn’t till second break something good really happened. Almost everyone goes off school property second break and something good happened, it really happened and when it did we were all in shock even Jessica. It happened, the thing we were all waiting for since grade 1, Justin asked out Jessica and it was amazing, totally unexpected and cute. Everyone’s mouths dropped and me, Jax, Ashley and Austin all screamed, “FINALLY”! After break we had math and science, then we all went home to do homework and think about what would happen if the person we loved for 7 years finally asked us out.
The perfect couple
Jessica and Justin were the perfect couple. They were going on dates every other Saturday and spending nights at each other houses. They did just about everything together. Jessica would tell me about their dates and about how happy she was. Justin told Jax about how he wouldn’t mess this relationship up and how lucky he was to have found a girl like Jessica. While at school they were ruled the happiest couple at Crantel public school, Jessica, Ashley and I were ruled the longest friendship at Crantel public school. Everything was wonderful, Jessica and Justin were finally together and all the bullies at Crantel public school left. The dream Jessica had since day 1 was finally reality.
Echo bowl trip
January 12th, 2018, we went to Echo bowl on a school trip. The whole school was there, from grade 3 to grade 8 and our school was the only school there. We all were having fun. Everyone loved bowling but what happened there made us all hate bowling after. Jessica saw something that she wasn’t supposed to see, something no one was supposed to see or hear about. She saw Justin French kiss Alissa. Justin also liked Alissa before he asked out Jessica. Alissa was also one of Justin’s ex-girlfriend’s and with Jessica seeing them French kiss it was twenty times worse.
Friday January 12th, 2018
When we got back to school from bowling, it wasn’t the same. We all thought Jessica and Justin were happy. That day we found out they weren’t, they were fighting all the time. They just acted liked they were fine in front of everybody. Twenty minutes after we got back, we also found out that Justin got Alissa pregnant and that he was cheating on Jessica for the last two months. Justin liked Alissa more then Jessica and he didn’t think of what Jessica would do after finding out, none of us did. Jessica was upset and now looking back everyone should’ve notice she wasn’t happy. Jessica was always cheerful, and she pretended to be happy. I blame myself for what happen at the end the day that day because I should’ve notice what was going on, I was her best friend and I let her down.
That same day at the end of the day, something terrible happened, something no one could believe. Jessica was done with everything and at 2:30 she told all of us. Around 2:20, Jessica took apart her pencil sharpener and took the razor blade with no one knowing. She then asked to go to the bathroom. After 10 minutes I was sent in to check on her and what I saw was so gruesome it was unbelievable. There on the floor was Jessica’s lifeless body just lying there. I ran over to her body and I started crying and screaming and in no time at all the principle heard me and came to the bathroom. The principle, Mr. Ant, was scared himself and he told me, “go get Mrs. Gold, right now”. Mrs. Gold was our secretary. I ran and got her, she then ran back to the office and called the paramedic’s and police. Mrs. Gold also got on the intercom and announced that there was a problem, and no one could leave their classrooms. The police and paramedics arrived in 5 minutes flat. The police found the letter and the paramedics rushed Jessica to the hospital. Our whole class went up 2 minutes after her and her family was already there scared as hell. We were all scared for Jessica’s life and when the doctor came out twenty minutes later and said she was, “gone and I’m so sorry for your loss”, her mother collapsed on her farther and everyone in our class started crying. Jessica was loved by all and when they announced she was dead it was like a little part of everyone died. The police gave us the suicide letter, I read it out loud to everyone. She wrote:
“to whomever this concerns,
I can’t take this any more with school and all this fricking drama. Justin still liked Alissa and she is a month pregnant with his child. I saw him kiss her today while bowling and that is were I had enough. So, good-bye to my friends, family, teachers, classmates and Justin. I will miss all of you and to Justin I still love you, always had and I always will.
we were all shocked by what was happening and devastated. This is how all it ends now, after everything this is how it all ended.
Fifteen years after
Fifteen years after Jessica’s suicide, we all still miss vary much. Ashley and I are supermodels now and still dating each others’ brothers. Justin became a teenage parent and is still with Alissa. Jax and Austin are now famous basketball players and our teachers some went on and taught at different schools and others stayed at Crantel public school. Today would have been Jessica’s birthday, February 14th. Ever since Jessica committed suicide I’ve hated valentines’ day.
