She had a friend.

My motivation for this short story has come from my own life experiences, good, bad and everything inbetween. I'm struggling at the moment and I thought the best way to relieve stress would be to write about things that have happened.

Nobody knows what's going on in my mind at this exact moment, not even me. It's really quite scary knowing that you're gripping to the cliff of sanity which happens to be unbelievably crumbly and unstable. It doesn't take much to turn a man crazy, whether it be a catastrophic family meltdown, persistent mind-fucking from a girl that you thought was perfect or even your "friends" that you thought would always be there for you but never were. Or maybe all of the above and a whole lot more. Well, that's what happened to me, anyway. You ask me why and how I'm in this position? I could ask you the same thing. I don't have a clue what happened. I guess you could say life happened. But once it does, there's definitely no turning back.

Let me take you back to the start, before I knew what problems were. I grew up in a small seaside town that gave the residents little reason to complain. Through my young, eager, naive eyes, everything seemed perfect. The world was my oyster. I was the most popular child at my primary school, I ruled everything and everyone. Don't get me wrong, I was kind and fair no matter what. The protector of the underdog was my unofficial moniker.
