. . .Nosedive Off a Cliff. . .

And there you have it, folks. That’s how I went from on top of the world to completely dirt bottom in less than a week. I lost the girl I thought I loved, the best friend I could ever have, my home, and my childhood all in one fell swing.

Good going, right?

The next two weeks passed in a haze as I worked as many shifts as I possibly could at the diner without killing myself. I still didn’t have any idea what I was going to do with my life, but I was certainly starting to make the money I needed to do it. It also had the added bonus of keeping me from thinking and especially from dwelling on the fact that every day brought me closer to the point when both girls would leave for their respective big cities.

Needless to say, I had sunk into a bit of a slump. Like a horrible sinkhole of depression kinda slump. And I probably would’ve stayed that way if it weren’t for the photograph.
