Her Go Part 1
On Monday, James brought Jeanne to school. Everyone gathered
around them and agreed that James and the new beautiful
girl was a good couple. James put his arm around Jeanne
and took her to Eric.
"What's up man? Who's the chick?" Eric asked.
"You'll never know."
"So tell me!"
"You want to tell him girl?" James asked Jeanne.
"Hi! I'm Jeanne." James and Jeanne smiled when they
heard him gasp.
"The! T-The N-Nerdy! Nerdy girl?"
"The same, Eric! The same!"
"Can I talk to you, James?" Eric took James away from
"Dude, what the hell is happening here? That's not Jeanne
"It is Jeanne! How can you live like that? How can you live
with one spontaneous idea stuck in your head? Haven't you thought
about Jeanne being beautiful and attractive?"
"See? I knew this was a bad idea. But she loves you! Can
you believe that? And I love her! So I'm letting her go to the
one jerk she loves. Peace, man." and with that, James walked
"Good luck, Jeanne." He stuffed his hands into his pockets.
He tried to stop the tears from streaming down his face. Jeanne!
if you love him that much, I'll let you go. I hope that jackass
won't hurt you.

"So! You're Jeanne! The one I rejected?"
"Well! I've thought about it, but I think I want
you to be my girlfriend."
"Yeah." Jeanne couldn't believe her ears.
Thank you James, she whispered happily.
"So do you accept?"
"Of course I do! It's always been my dream!"
"Gosh! you have pretty weird dreams! Hey, you
look cold. Here." Eric took off his sweater and
wrapped it over Jeanne. Jeanne was so happy she started
crying. Eric wiped her tears and comforted her.
After school, Jeanne called James to thank him.
"James! Thank you so much! It went so well between
Eric and me!"
"That's... That's great Jeanne..."
"I owe it all to you. Let's go out for lunch
or something sometime. I'll pay." Jeanne sounded
"Jeanne, I don't think that'll be possible."
"I'm leaving for U.K."
"What about your parents? Why are you going?
How are you going? I just don't believe this!"
"My parents passed away a long time ago. I have
enough money to get on a plane to U.K."
"But what about me? I thought you loved me!"
"Yes, I do. But you're in love with someone else
and I don't want to be a burden to you. I want you
to be happy with the one you love and not be pressured
by me. Tell Eric that I congratulate him and please
help me bade him goodbye. Bye, Jeanne."
Jeanne couldn't believe it. She was able to date
Eric because of James. She was able to get attractive
because of James. She was always comforted because
of James! And he was leaving her out by herself in
the big, hateful, hideous world. She suddenly felt
so scared. She dialed James's number again but he
had disconnected the phone. She finally knew who is
important to her right now.
She quickly got dressed into the clothes James bought
for her and ran outside. She was running for her dear
life to James's house. When she got there, he was
right there in front of her.
Jeanne was so happy she cried out, "JAMES!"
He turned to face her.
"James, how can you leave me like this?" James looked
at her with his soft eyes.
"I'm sorry, Jeanne. I have to leave. My cab's here. Bye,
Jeanne." James gave her a peck on the cheek and disappeared
into the taxi. She watched the taxi disappear around the bend
and watched her James leave her forever! She started crying and
continued crying as if her life was over. To her, her life is
officially over as she is now alone in the world with nobody to

-15 years later-
James came back to America as a successful lawyer.
He came back to America in search for the girl he
had loved 15 years ago. Everyone in U.K. asked him
about her often. Now that he is back, he would be
find her and get back together with her. But little
did he know there was a problem with that.
"Eric?" James had called Eric. They were
in touch the whole time James was in U.K.
"Hey! What's up?"
"I came back to America dude!"
"Oh! Umm! OK!"
"I want to ask about Jeanne. Is she all right?"
"James, there is something that I should let
"I'm getting a bad feeling about this!"
"Well, I guess you can say she's happy and well."
"What do you mean?"
"She's with God, man. She's gone."
"Haha. Nice joke. I'm not kidding. Tell me where
"Dude! I'm Telling You! After You Told Her You
Were Leaving Her, She Started Getting Depressed And
Became Extremely Stressed! It Was Horrible! Why The
Hell Did You Leave? She Would Still Be Alive! She
Committed Suicide Because Of You! What The Hell Is
Wrong With You, You Dumb-Ass Jerk! I Thought You Loved
Her! I Don't Think That's What Guys Who Fall In Love
Do To Their Crush! Just Leave Me Alone! Remember When
You Called Me A Jackass? You'd Better Think Again."
The phone fell from James's hand. He dropped to his
knees in disbelief. He couldn't believe it. He felt
like everything is against him. He felt so angry with
himself. He felt like ripping himself up. He wanted
to follow Jeanne up to heaven.
For days and days, James didn't eat anything. He
was too depressed to carry on with his life.
James was buried right next to Jeanne's grave. His
