She looked at me in my eyes, hers brimming with tears. She didn't have to struggle to make me feel bad- I already felt my insides twisting and accusing me of betrayal. It was like my soul was sucked out of my body, my heart ceased to function and so did my brain and my lungs. Then, she said something I'd never forget...
"You don't have to die to be dead.", she said.
I felt the whole world around me collapse, yet I didn't faint.
I was living but dead at the same time.
She killed me and let me live at the same time.
