I can still retrieve clearly. It was the newspaper headline one twelvemonth ago that shook the full Townsville. Lisa Davies. an 18 twelvemonth old pupil of the local high school had fallen off the balcony at a house party ( under the influence of intoxicant ) and died of terrible internal hemorrhage.

During the 2nd term of our matric twelvemonth. the rugger team’s captain held a place party. Lisa went so I tagged along. Lisa. like all the others was so intoxicated and decided to acquire some fresh air. she went out to the balcony and harmonizing to the newspapers. slipped and fell. ” Unfortunately there were no informants since all were under the influence of intoxicant and had obscure memory of that specific day’’ was what was written in the newspaper article.
The ugly truth that I ne’er told anyone and ne’er managed to acquire off my scruples. was the blurry yet present vision of Lisa keeping recklessly onto the railings. hanging by a yarn. hold oning for my aid as I willingly allow her mutely. easy faux pas through my fingers into the cold dark air…
