Emotional Ellray Essay

1397 words - 6 pages

Ellray didn’t know what to think of when he heard about Sally. He heard a couple of girls saying Sally finally got a boyfriend when he was paying for his sandwich at 7/11. At first he didn’t believe them. He knew Sally since 7th grade and been friends ever since. There was no way she wouldn’t have told him, so it must be just a rumor, he thought. But as exited the store and started walking home, the idea of Sally dating someone bothered him. He just had to make sure it was a rumor. He started running towards her house. When he got there, he rang the doorbell twice. Sally opened the door and stepped out of the house.
“What’s up?” she said while fixing her hair.
“I just heard from someone that you got a boyfriend, is it true?” Ellray said as he put his hand in his pockets and was trying to act cool. Of course Sally didn’t know that he had a crush on her.
“Ya I haven’t told you yet did I? I met him-”
“How could you do this to me? I gave you everything you wanted and we were friends since forever and…”
“Oh Ellray, I thought we were just friends. I didn’t think that you liked me in that way, I just wanted to be your friend anyway,” Sally said.
She was shocked to hear of this. She thought of Ellray and her in a relationship, she promptly despised the idea. But she felt sorry for him too. She knew how emotional Ellray was. Ellray felt like he hated her, he hated everything to do with her, he hated the world. Ellray darted away from her house. He didn’t know where he was going. He didn’t look back, he just ran.

After about five minutes of running, he stopped. He took a deep breath; he thought Sally and what is going to happen. “I am going to be the third wheel!” Then a crazy idea hit his head. “I am going to get revenge,” he told himself. He called his crew and told him meet him at his apartment.

As he reached the apartment, he saw that his friends were already waiting for him. They were dressed like gangsters. They were like followers of Ellray and listened to everything he said and respected him. As they entered his apartment, Ellray told them about the situation. Then he told them the plan. He was going to write a letter that stated that it was Sally that made him suicide so the police was then going to execute her. His friends knew it was a bad idea but when Ellray said if they help him, each of them will get five thousand dollars, their greedy side took over. Ellray explained their job carefully.
“You guys have to find a way for me to suicide so that it’s quick and painless,” he ordered.
“No problem Ellray, we will figure things out, just consider it done,” Jack said. He is the chubbiest of the three and is always eating chocolate.
When they left Ellray sat on his bed and turned on his radio and started listening to sad music.
Later in the afternoon that day, his friends came again. They brought Chinese food and drugs.
“You are going to eat the Chinese food for supper and take five of these drugs,” Mike said. He was the tallest of the friends,...
