The following Friday, the two of them approached the dilapidated building that was located beside a nail salon which wasn’t very efficient. “How are you lovely boys doing today? I’m guessing you guys are here to appoint Dr. Mellow?” said the lady. This time she was wearing a coral peach lip gloss which faded the appearance of her chapped cracked lips. “Yes, we’re here to appoint Dr. Mellow” said Hayley. “He’ll be here in 5 minute or so, have a seat” smiled, the office lady. “We’re going to tell each other’s problem and make up a solution? Okay?” urged wolf. Dr. Mellow walked in the office wearing a pink suit and a neon green tie which showcased his round thick belly even more. “You two are ...view middle of the document...

I’ll help you two with everything. I will supply the weapons and all you need to do is to condition your minds like I do” said Dr. Mellow. Hayley had no words to describe what he was hearing. He couldn’t acknowledge the fact that they both had smirked at this situation and wanted to commit it. “I’m in, I’ve always wanted to get rid of those obnoxious, half empty brains. How about you Hayley? Are you in?” snickered Wolf. “I can’t……decide whether this is a good idea or not. I’m in” muttered Hayley. “Ok, let’s come up with a target plan and I have some pistol guns at home. Wolf and I will come up with the plan, you’re free to go Hayley. Meet us at this address” Dr. Mellow handed a piece of paper to him, which wrote down his address. Hayley felt like he was in a daze; another world. The next morning, Both Hayley and Wolf skipped classes and went straight to Dr. Mellow’s home. His house was in a low income neighbourhood, and it was a detached home which looked like cookie cutter home. Hayley and Wolf met at his home. They entered the cold, mold filled basement. Inside the basement was a large table which had a pistol and maps of the LA area. “Here is our plan on parent meeting night, we will meet at the front foyer. Afterwards Wolf and I will shoot anyone in the way but you, Hayley must target the parents while Wolf and I shoot down the kids. The police will be called by the time you’re finished with the parents. From there, we get rid of ourselves.” Said Dr. mellow confidently. “That sounds like a great idea” yelped Wolf. “I’m not so sure about killing my parents, I mean they are my parents” replied Hayley. “Now that you know about the plan, you can’t go back.” expressed Wolf. “It’s going to be great, you’ll be dead too; all of us will. Clearly stating the obvious. We’ll meet each other at school tomorrow” said Dr. Mellow. Afterwards, Wolf and Hayley left the house. Wolf was calm and collected but Hayley filled his lungs with cigarettes. Hayley stayed up all night calculating and debating whether it was the right commitment. Hayley slept all day; ignoring the world.
When he finally woke up, he noticed it was humid and rain had settled at the edge of his window. It was rare to have rain in California which made Hayley debate the plan inside his head. When it was evening, Hayley met with Wolf at the bus stop near Wolf’s house. “I don’t think this is right, I mean there are other solutions to this. We don’t have to end it. We can end the sadness and emptiness inside our heart and brain. Wolf, listen I know you feel as if you can’t do anything but please. I’ll help you” implored Hayley. Wolf smirked at Hayley. “Don’t you understand? It will never end. I’m already dead inside, I’m only living to die. Why am I taking it on others? Simple. I let them out of their misery” uttered Wolf. Wolf handed the gun to Hayley, which he held with a tight grip. Hayley’s hand began to sweat, he...
