Returning The FavorI remembered when I was 16 or so. I was really foolish , I attempted suicide because I felt like my family members didn't understand me , and my boyfriend left me for another girl , saying that I wasn't feminine enough. It felt like my whole world had just crumbled at that instant , I would laze around in bed all day , thinking of all the fun times that we had together and unknowingly shed tears.
One day , I just couldn't take it anymore after checking his facebook photos of him and his new girlfriend. I attempted suicide by slitting my wrists at the rooftop of my school. I gaze upon the horizons , the clear serene blue skies that enveloped everything. The birds chirping and fluttering their wings happily , and the clouds were never alone when drifting around endlessly. Everything just seemed so beautiful at that instant as I felt my blood spew out like a vile fountain.
It's all over , I thought. My vision was getting hazy and I was getting air-headed. Just then , I heard some footsteps from the stairs behind me. A male student that I had never seen before came up. And to his shock , I was sitting down with a puddle of blood beneath my wrists.
His eyes opened wide in surprise as he gasped , but he sprung into action immediately and ran towards me , stopping me from dying. He lifted my wrist high up in the end while applying pressure to it and called for an ambulance. I glanced at his face drowsily , he was pretty cute I guess.
I struggled and flailed my limbs wildly. I just wanted to die but why is this stranger that didn't know me trying to stop me ? He hugged me tight to prevent me from struggling. Time seemed to had stopped as I felt his warm embrace as he whispered in my ears , " It's okay. Death is never an option. It's hard but life stills goes on , think about your parents and your friends when they found out that you are dead. "
It seemed to had snapped me back to reality as I imagined my parents grieving over my corpse. And I silently nodded to him. The ambulance came shortly after and my life was barely saved by this complete stranger that I didn't know.
And yes , I found him in the school campus after I had recovered and we are having our second year anniversary soon :b
I really want to thank him for saving me when I was at the lowest point of my life but he said that it's the only right thing to do. So I decided to dedicate my life to helping others whom are having troubles as well , so as to help them like he had helped me. God had gave me a present that I would never forget <3
