Mom/ Miss. Wilkerson.
Laura, have you spoken to Jason? He’s acting so strange. He rarely comes out of his room, unless he has to use the bathroom. I’ve knocked on his door, asking if he’d like to go out to eat, but he doesn’t answer. He’s like a flash of lighting moving around the house. He leaves for school then returns to his bedroom without speaking a single word. He claims he’s not hungry when I cook dinner. Something or someone is bothering him, yet I can’t find out, because he won’t ask for help.
Could you try to talk to him? Send him a few text? I don’t mean to bother you, but you’re his best friend. If there is anyone he will confide in, it will be you. I’m grateful he met you. You’re a bright spot in his life. Please hurry.
Hello, Miss. Wilkerson. I’m not sure. Don’t worry. I understand. I talked to him last week. We didn’t talk for long. He seemed distant like something weird was going on. I should of asked him if he was alright. I’ll text him straight away. Thank you for calling me.
Jason, it’s Laura. How are you? Your mom called me. She said she’s worried about you. Are you ok? You seemed a little hesitant last week. Is it, because of Mr. Wheelers algabra test? I asked him to give me a few notes after class. He told me I was being nosy and trying to cheat. What a jerk. We should hang out this weekend. I’ll pay this time. Hope you’re alright.
Laura! Are you serious? Since when did you and my mom become friends? I told her to back off. She nor you understand how I feel right now. And I don’t feel like talking about it, so back off alright?
Laura, please help! As soon as Jason texted you back he threaten me! He scolded me for asking you for help. I begged him to tell me the truth, but that made things worse. He took his baseball bat and smashed a lamp then left. He said if I asked him again he’d leave for good. I’m scared he’s going to do something horrible. I may call the police.
Oh my gosh! I’m so sorry. When he texted me, he wasn’t happy. He told me to stay out of it. I don’t know what is wrong, but he’s scaring me too. Did he tell you where he’s going? Don’t call the police. I’ll call my dad and let him know what is going on, but first I need to know where he is going. Are you safe?
Mom/ Miss. Wilkerson
Yes, Laura, I’m safe. Scared, but safe. I didn’t call the police, but I called him twice. He didn’t answer. I feel bad, but I went into his room and found suicidal notes. He’s prepared to take his own life. He can’t do this. I won’t let my baby ruin his life. Please call your father and let him now!
What! Oh my gosh! I can’t believe this! Of course. Please remain calm. I’ll call my dad. Him and the police will handle this.
Dad. Something bad is happening. It’s Jason. I’m not sure, but he’s planning to kill himself. I’ve been speaking to his mom. She’s really scared. You need to find him before….. before…..
What the hell! Are you sure? Where is he?What caused him to think about doing this? It’s ok, honey. We will handle this, but how is Daisy? Go check on her and will try to figure out where Jason is headed.
Ok. That is a good idea. Please hurry, dad. I’m so scared.
Miss. Wilkerson. I talked to my dad. He knows and is now searching for Jason. I’m going to come over and stay with you until they find Jason. My dad is going to do everything he can to save him.
Laura! Jason just called me. He’s going to do it. He’s at Moth Bridge. He’s planning to jump. He won’t listen to me. I’m scared. I don’t want to lose him!
I’ll call him. He can’t do this!
Jason, please answer. Your mom called me. What is wrong? I know you don’t want to talk, but we must. Please don’t do this! Your mom is afraid. I’m afraid. Please don’t jump! We can handle whatever is going on. Don’t do this.
Dad. I know where Jason is. He’s at Moth Bridge. He’s planning to jump! Please save him!
Alright, sweetheart. Thank you. We’re on the road. We will head that way pronto!
Laura, it’s me. I’m sorry, but it has to be this way. I can’t live anymore. I’m tired of it. Nothing has gone right. My father is dead. My mom is broke. We can’t keep living this way.
No, Jason. Don’t say that. Don’t ever say that. Your mom loves you. She’ll be devastated if you do this. I’ll be heart broken. You’re my friend, Jason. I will miss you. We will all miss you. Please don’t do this!
Shit, Laura! You called your dad. The cops just showed up. I can’t handle this anymore. I’m going to ju-( phone loses signal).
( Twenty minutes later)
Laura. It’s ok. Jason is ok. We got to him before he jumped. We stunned him, but he’ll be alright. Tell his mother he’s going to be ok.
Oh my gosh! Thank you, dad. I’ll tell his mom right away!
