I turn the bottle of pills so that the label faces my dresser, hoping that it will deter me from taking my normal two at night. I see them piled on top of each other, waiting to be swallowed.
If I take the whole bottle, would I stop breathing? Would I be able to see Jasper again?
A need deep inside me wants so badly to see him again. Just for a moment.
What if I take them? What if he comes to me just like Poppy? Who’d find me if I overdosed?
Most likely, my mother, and the thought of taking the pills quickly fades because I know Tracy couldn’t handle losing both her children. One was hard enough. She doesn’t think I can hear her quiet sobs, the ones she tries to hide from me in the shower in the early hours of the morning. Although Tracy and I have a strained relationship, I know she loves me. The past two weeks, I’ve woken up to her arm around my middle and her head buried into my back.
I glance back at the pills, reach for my phone, and set my alarm for school tomorrow.
I click off the light and pray for a few hours of sleep.
I click on the light and take two of the white pills that Dr. Elizabeth prescribed.
