He's not dead. They're all wrong. They don't understand that he's just playing, that any moment he's going sit up, and laugh with her at them for not figuring it out. Because he isn't really dead. All that blood pouring out of him, that's not real. He's not really bleeding, because there's no way he could have lost that much blood and live. So he has to be faking it. It's just like him to play a joke on them, just to get them to laugh. Forever with the funny, even in... No. Not death. Because he's not dead. He can't be. He just proposed. Of all the people to have died, he's not the one who was supposed to. He's the one who was supposed to sit aside with her, yelling out encouragement. God, why did he always have to play the hero? Why couldn't he have left with her two years ago when she asked him to? Driven to anywhere, just to get out of this town. Why couldn't he have listen to her?

And now he's...

No. If she doesn't think it, it's not true.

If she doesn't think it, he isn't... gone. There's a chance he'll come back, as long as she doesn't have to realize...

He's dead.
