You skimmed over the small note you found in your locker. You almost choked when you read it and sprinted to the roof. You ran up the stairs panting and praying you weren't too late. Tears formed in your eyes as you clinched onto the paper in your hand. Worry and doubts filled your mind only making matters worse. You made it to the top floor and swung the door open. A small sigh of relief was released when you saw he was still alive. Yet you couldn't breathe easy until he was off of the ledge. You tried to walk up to him but he gave you a dirty glare. Your heart split in two when his eyes met yours.
"___! Get away! I just want to jump in peace…" The Albino yelled.
"No! Gilbert please, you don't have to do this! It's not the way out!" You managed to choke out.
"___, if you take one more step I will jump, I'm not joking! It's too late for me; can't you just let me die?" His voice grew softer as well did his expression. You took his warning and stopped walking but the tears that were forming in your eyes have started to drip down your soft face.
"No! Gilbert, it's not too late! It's never too late! Please, Gil just get off of there…. Please, you have a whole life to live….. Please."
"What the point? All my motives are gone; I have no will to live. It's not like anyone will miss me."
"No, Gilbert can't you see? Ludwig would be in a state of depression. Even if he doesn't show it he loves you with all his heart. Please Gil, get down from there!"
"So? It's just one person!"
"Liz would be upset too! Even though she doesn't say it she sees you as one of her best friend. A-a-and it you are to jump…. I don't know what I would do! Eventually I would jump myself! Please, Gilbert I can't be without you! Please, Gil! Please don't jump!"
"Lies! It's all lies! I don't believe one word of it! You would never jump after me!"
"No, I would! Please, I just want you to get down! Please, Gilbert!" You cried out to the German. But, he ignored your pleats and kept his eyes on the sixty foot drop. He was about to let go and you realized that you only had one shot at making him believe you.
"Please Gilbert, I love you! I always have and always will! If you jump I will follow you down and if I survive I will hang myself just to be with you!" You ran up to the railing and held onto him. He was surprised and didn't know what to do but pull one arm over you. You let go and looked into his deep red eyes. They showed a hint of sadness as he put one hand on your chin and pulled it up. His soft lips met yours and you felt little fireworks go off but for some reason when they exploded they made you want to cry from the tragedy. He pulled away slightly and whispered in your ear.
"I'm sorry ___ but it's too late for me. I love you." And with that he let go. Almost instantly you jumped over the rail and into his embrace. You looked up to him with tears. The last thing you heard was the *ca-thump* your bodies made when they hit the concrete.
