When I got the call, I sat down hard on my bed.
I was shocked.
No, wait, thats putting it mildly; I was devastated. In total disbelief.
There was no way this was true; no way this was real life. Things like this just didnt happen to people. They happened on TV and in movies, but not to people who you really know. Not to people you love and care about.
