Kinetic energy, always in motion. Variables, equations, then answers: making the complicated uncomplicated. This is why I love physics. But if energy cannot be created nor destroyed, what about the physics of death? It makes my stomach churn, but I canít lose my nerve. How much longer can I stand to be my fatherís daughter, my father who murdered the town hero? I canít take the chance that Iím in for the same fate. I see it in the way everyone looks at me, whispers, ignores. Even my mom and her new family. Itíll be better for everyone when Iím not here, especially for me. The website Smooth Passages is helping me. I think I found my suicide partner, Roman. I didnít think anyone else had the gravity of problems like me, but I found out his might be worse. So weíre the perfect pair. But now I canít stop thinking about how he actually cares about me and has never once mentioned my father to me. Sometimes I think I start to see some light through this black hole, but itís only because of Roman. And suicide pacts are pretty final. So much for making the complicated uncomplicated.
