Bring it on.
I squeezed my eyes tighter, attempting to stop the new tears from flowing down my cheeks. Barely two feet into the room and already I was crying; I needed to stop thinking about Kyle. Except how could I? How could I forget how easily he had manipulated me? How could I forget his face as he shot that innocent man?
How could I forget how much I had loved him?
It didn't matter, I reminded myself. This was something I had to do. Besides, I wasn't the first girl he had lied to and used. He deserved this... didn't he?
I choked back a sob. Too bad knowing what's right didn't make it easier.
As I sat down, I forced my eyes open and tried looking brave. The door opened again as the judge entered. I stood up with the others, my eyes never leaving the door, knowing that when it closed, there would be no going back.
The door swung shut.
Well, there it is! Exactly 200 words even! Does it make sense? Sound good? Tell me what you think!
Also, you can vote for me here. I'm number 278. Thanks! :D
