A/N: I don't even know why the heck I'm posting this, if anything maybe to make up for the fact that my new H2O story isn't quite ready to be posted, and I know that several of the readers of H2O are also fans of Home & Away. Idk if I'm even going to continue this, it's kind of a strange plot, pulling more of the blame of the break-up of Romeo and Indi on Romeo, with an…interesting twist we might say. I really have nothing planned, just a vague idea, but if enough people like this I might attempt to make something out of it. Okay, I'm going to shut up now and let you read this little snippet. Enjoy! :)

Disclaimer: I don't own Home & Away.

PROLOGUE

I couldn't take it anymore. I saw my life flash before my eyes and everything I saw disgusted me. I couldn't do this to her, to them. It was better this way.

I lifted the gun to my forehead, which was dripping with beads of sweat. I took a deep breath and clenched my jaw in anticipation of the pain that I knew was soon to follow. I shook my head silently; I mustn't waste anymore time. With that resolve in my mind I pulled the trigger, hoping to end all my troubles, sorrows, and pains.

I felt a sharp searing pain in my head that brought me to my knees, but I refused to let myself make a sound. I heard someone cry out from downstairs, but it didn't matter. The door was locked; they wouldn't reach me until it was too late. She would find someone better, so much better. She deserved better; she deserved the best. Those were my last thoughts before I sunk into complete and utter darkness, collapsing in a heap on the floor.

The peace and calmness was overwhelming. For the first time in weeks, I didn't hate myself. I had done what I needed to do; there was no turning back, and for the first time in my life I had no regrets.


"Dad, what was that?" Indi half-screamed, panicking.

"It sounded like a gun," Sid said slowly.

"Romeo," they both said simultaneously.

"Oh my god, ROMEO!" Indi shrieked, dashing in the direction of the bedroom. She slammed into the door, twisting the knob in vain.

"It's locked!" she sobbed. "Dad, do something! Romeo!"

"Take it easy Indi," Sid said calmingly, his emergency training taking over. He turned towards the door.

"Romeo, can you hear me?" he called.

No answer. Indi moaned and buried her head in her hands. Just then Dex walked in the front door.

"Hello my familia, how goes things on..." his voice trailed off when he saw Indi crying and his dad's serious face.

"Hey, what's going on?"

"Romeo is locked in the bedroom, and we think he might have attempted suicide. Dex, I need your help; we're going to have to jar the door loose."

"Oh my gosh, are you serious?" Dex asked incredulously, coming over by his father.

"Yes, I'm serious, now on three we hit the door."

Dex nodded, still looking bewildered, and placed his shoulder up against the bedroom door along with Sid's.

"Okay, one, two, three!" And with that Sid and Dex threw all their strength at the door, jarring it, but not dislodging it.

Indi was frantic. "Dad, hurry, he could be dead by now!" she screamed.

"One more time Dex, I think that'll do it," Sid said, "and give it all you got this time!" They rammed into the door once again, and this time it shuddered and collapsed. Sid stepped through the wreckage with Indi and Dex close at his heels.

"Oh boy," he sighed as he viewed the situation. Indi pushed her way passed.

"Oh my god, Romeo," she cried, kneeling by her husband, who was collapsed on the floor, blood pouring out of his temple.

"Dex, call an ambulance, now," Sid ordered, taking charge. Dex was out the door in a second. Sid turned back to his daughter and knelt on the ground by his unconscious son-in-law.

"Dad," Indi gasped, on the verge of hysteria with tears rolling down her cheeks, "Is he going to be okay? Please tell me he's going to be okay."

Sid sighed. "I don't know."

"I don't know."

A/N: Soooo? What did you think? Horrible? Pathetic? Terrible? Awful? Not bad? Horrendous? Just plain YUCK? I don't know what to think of it myself and I'm fighting a battle with myself whether or not it was a good idea to post this. You can help me feel A LOT better if you review. Just let me know what you thought about this; even if you hated it. I don't mind constructive criticism; it can be extremely helpful. On the other hand, if you actually like it, it would totally make my day if you were to tell me. Okay, I'm done chattering. Thank you so much for reading! :)
