Stupid Effin' Birdie
Disclaimers: I OWN NOTHING –sobs-
I looked out the window of the meeting room. It was actually pretty nice out. The word 'dinosaur' caught my eye, and I looked up. There was Alfred, at the podium, rambling. No one ever pays attention to what he says anymore. Well, Arthur does, but that's because they're dating. I resumed staring mindlessly out the window. We were pretty high up today. Why did Alfred have to choose this building? The temptation is eating away at me.
Suicide isn't a thought that's new to me, sadly. No one notices me, and when they do, it's only because they want something from me. So, if I just got up and walked out and never came back, would they notice?
I decided to test it. I am sick of living this way. I stood up and walked towards the door. Once my hand was on the doorknob, I glanced towards everybody. France, my 'Papa', Arthur, my 'father figure', and Al, my 'brother'. They don't even bother to look my way. I turned the doorknob and walked out, half slamming it closed behind me.
Something that I didn't notice was a certain albino eying me worriedly right before I walked away.
I stood next to the edge. Maybe if I jumped off of the Brooklyn Bridge, Alfred would finally notice me. I nervously looked around, making sure no one was watching. I realize now how stupid that was; seeing as being 'invisible' was the reason I was in this predicament. I hopped the railing, careful not to slip and fall. Falling to my death wouldn't have quite the same effect.
I took a deep breath and looked down to the water. Was I really going to do this?
"Yes, I am." I whispered to myself. I took one step forward and was about to fall when I heard someone screaming.
"WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU THINK YOU'RE DOING!" I turned around and there he was. He stared at me, eyes filled to the brim with rage, hurt, and one other thing that I couldn't quite put my finger on. He continued to glare at me for a while before saying, "Get your ass back over the railing right now, you stupid fucking birdie."
So, of course I couldn't just jump with him right there. I got the feeling that he might jump in after me. I just couldn't figure out why…
He broke me out of my thoughts by clearing his throat and gesturing for me to 'get the hell over the railing.' I was about to climb back over when my foot slipped. For a moment, everything was slowed down. And at the same time, three things happened.
I started to fall.
I heard Gilbert scream something unintelligible.
He grabbed my arm, and stopped me from falling to my death.
I stared at him while I hung. His eyes were full of something else now, pure fear.
He pulled me up over the edge and before I could say anything, he pulled me into a hug. I started to cry, and he stroked my hair lightly.
"Don't ever do that to me again…" He chocked out.
Well, there it was. My first fanfiction ever….
