"See! Times like this I wish my dad hadn't of gone out to look for YOUR sister! If he hadn't paid attention to your whining, he wouldn't of gone and wouldn't of have gotten in that car accident that cost him his life! Don't you understand the pain I went through when that police man came to knock on our door and tell us that the most important person in my life had died! It was like being dead alive, my dad died! The one person that had always been there for me was no where to be seen again! Sometimes I wish it had been me who died so I wouldn't have to go through this pain. All you say to try to make it better is "forget". That doesn't help at all, yeah I may say I'm stronger now or that I have forgotten but why lie! Why say I have when I perfectly know it's not true! Ahh I hate this, leaving to Ohio would be like leaving my dad why don't you understand!"

Ana wakes up at a good time (7:00a.m.). Gets up to go check on Median. Knocks on Median's door to realize that there's no answer. She gets a very bad feeling about this and rushes downstairs to get knife to be able to open the door. Once she opens the room door, she sees that the bed is empty and neat like Median hadn't slept there. She knocks once again on the bathroom door and n opens to see no one there. Finally she decides to check in Median's big closet. She opens the door, then falls down to her knees, unable to speak or cry just speechless. What she had found was nothing worse but the dead body of her only child. Median had hung herself in her closet.

"Median! No, no, NOO! What have you done, what did I do to push you to this point!"

"No Median , my little girl! Mariana! My only daughter is dead! Not again please, not the same nightmare twice. First my husband and now my daughter!"

The police had now left with Median's body. Mariana closes the front door and makes her way upstairs. She closes the door to Median's room and makes her way into Ana's room. Ana was laying down when Mariana walked in.

MarthaDavila20 - on 11/21/2013

Mariana

"Ana, are you okay? Have you ate anything? Do want something? Don't be scared to ask for it, you know I'm here for you."

MarthaDavila20 - on 11/21/2013

Mariana sits on the bed where Ana is laying down. The day was a rainy and with the curtains down, Ana's room was a greyish dark.

MarthaDavila20 - on 11/21/2013

Ana

"Yes, I need something. I need my daughter and husband back. I need my old life back. I need the people that I love the most back."

MarthaDavila20 - on 11/21/2013

Mariana

"Look, I know it's not easy to loose those important people in your life. Especially not of they die not even 1 year apart. I feel the same pain as you because the person that just died was blood of my blood, she was my niece. But life goes on, and cry, yell, run , do what you do, you won't be able to get them back. Sorry I am being so direct in these hard times but unfortunately its the truth."

Ana sits up, and just cries once again and with the only thing in mind was why her daughter had done such a terrible thing. After Ana calms down she is getting ready to talk without having to start crying again.

MarthaDavila20 - on 11/21/2013 2 versions.

Ana

"Am I really that bad of a person, to have those people die. Only if Median would of had told me what she was going through I wouldn't of hesitated on helping her."

MarthaDavila20 - on 11/21/2013

Mariana

"No you are not, and as I have said before, everything happens for a reason. Don't be so harsh on yourself because you are not responsible for Median's decision on taking her life away."

MarthaDavila20 - on 11/21/2013

Ana stands up and leaves her room. Mariana goes after her and they go into the kitchen.

MarthaDavila20 - on 11/21/2013

Ana

"It was my fault because maybe if I had not decided to tell her that we were moving, none of this would of happened. I feel even worse because last night we had a big fight over something that was just a shadow from the past, but Median couldn't let go of the fact that her dad had died."

MarthaDavila20 - on 11/21/2013 2 versions.

Ana looks out the window, with tears in her eyes. Mariana just stands there not knowing what to do.

MarthaDavila20 - on 11/22/2013

MARIANA

"You know, I came here to pick you guys up to go to Ohio. But, to my surprise I came to find you in another tragedy."

MarthaDavila20 - on 11/22/2013

"If you wouldn't of been here, I probably would of killed myself right there and then."

Median's Letter

Dear Mom, All I ask is for your forgiveness. My intention wasn't to bring more suffer into your actual life. But, you have to understand me that what happened, or more clearly what I did was because I didn't belong in this world. What others thought as funny was the reason I was suffering the most. I hated the way that everyone would feel sorry for me because my dad had died. I tried to show them what I could do on my own but they always thought I wouldn't be able to do it. I'm really sorry for leaving you in this cruel world but I couldn't take it anymore. Thank you for all of your attentions and the effort you put in to make my life better. I love you and remember death isn't a separation, I'm just ahead of you and hopefully we will see each other again soon. Just remember that the cause of my death wasn't for your decision of moving to Ohio. That mattered and I know I was making a big deal out of it but I just didn't know what I wanted. I love you mom and always will. Don't dare and blame yourself for this because you had nothing to do with it. Sincerely, Median

"I wish I could of seen that something was wrong with her. But I was so blind not see that she was going through hell. I honestly it could of happened in a different way. I don't blame myself like she said I shouldn't but it's just to hard."
