pills

"Do you want a pill to help you sleep?"
"No, I want a pill that will make it stop hurting" she grieved.

"I don't have a pill for that."

and we were left with the weight of his absence and silence between us.

teachers have feelings too? =P just kidding...

i loved the realism of your feelings here, no censorship, just life i guess... the quotations make the scene all the more mind-blowing.

It is difficult to know what to say or comfort someone you love who is in such pain as grief presents. All you can really be is a friend and just be there. I love the way you deal with this side of the coin....Nicely done. Tai
