I hate it. I hate it. I can't do this anymore. The had had been on repeat in her brain all day. Maybe far longer. Every day she woke up dreading having to face the day. Things were never different. She would go through the motions just to make it through. If something did go differently, it was going badly. Kicking a dog while it was down. Beating a dead horse. For a while she had grown numb. No longer feeling any sort of emotions and living her life like a robot. But not any more. Not after today. Cassie took this route home every day. Crossing the long bridge by foot after her class was over. She hadn't woken up today with the intend to climb over the railing and stand on the edge. But that's what she did. In tearful frustration, she balanced on the edge and took off her shoes. She chucked them downwards at the dark cold water below and watched them fall. Cassie couldn't take another day. She tilted forward getting ready to fall over the edge.
