The Write Life

Seducing hearts, one story at a time, Author - Crystal R. Martin

It's Halloween time boys and girls so I'm sharing my spooky story. Think what you may. Feedback is always welcome.

Viral

The video was first uploaded to YouTube, before spreading everywhere. It went viral. A semi transparent teen stands in front of his locker. He turns towards the camera and holds up a sign. It reads, "My name is Christopher and I am bullied everyday."

Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata softens the silence. The kid does not look any different from any other teenager. Nothing about this kid stands out, at least on the surface.

He tosses his sign and pulls a new one from his locker. "I am tired of suffering."  Sadness fills his eyes, explaining as much as his sign does. He tosses that one, and grabs another.

"Please stop hurting other people." He holds it up for the camera. The music continues. The hallway where his locker stands remains empty except for his presence.

The music intensifies as he tosses aside the sign and turns to grab another. "It's too late for me, but save the rest, please." The music begins to fade out...Christopher kisses his fingers and flashes the camera a peace sign before fading from sight...

We studied the video, even brought in experts. Everyone agrees, there is no explaining it. The video was filmed three weeks after Christopher Aaron Smith hung himself in his high school's gymnasium.
