Keyur is a college student, studying in India. He loves to write, and wants to take the audience on a rollercoaster of emotions.

He tried to put off the raging fire in his heart, and wiped the tears from his eyes. Jaime could not believe what he saw, he didn't want to believe it.

"How could she?", He asked himself, as he made his way home. The night was so quiet, one could hear the street lights flickering. Jaime walked slowly, constantly wiping his tears. The leaves beneath cracked. The wind howled. There was a certain sad tone in the air that night. Jamie's past was playing in his mind. He could not believe that the one person he thought would never hurt him had just put him down to dust.
He reached his apartment and unlocked the door. He walked in, leaving the door open. He was not in a normal state of mind. He stretched out his right arm and grabbed a random bottle of liquor. He opened the bottle and gulped two big sips from it, as he made his way to the bathroom. He twisted the cold knob of the bathroom door and went inside. He turned on the shower and stood under the cold water. Although his tears mixed with the freezing shower water, it was not hard to figure out that he was crying.
Nora entered through the open apartment door. "Jaime, are you there ?", She said, looking around for Jaime. She heard the running water and followed to the bathroom.
"Jaime! What are you doing!", she exclaimed as she saw Jaime standing under the freezing water. She dragged him out. His clothes were wet and cold, and he was shivering. He took another big sip from the bottle in his hand.
"What the hell are you doing Jaime? Let me get you a towel", she said. She grabbed a towel and wrapped it around him. She held him by his shoulder and helped him out.
"Leave me alone", Jaime said in a deep voice.
"Jaime you are in no condition of--
"I said the leave me alone", interrupted Jaime, shouting, and throwing the bottle on the floor. Nora closed her eyes and covered her ears. Jaime started going into the hallway. A sharp piece of glass pierced through the skin of his foot, and blood started dripping. Jaime collapsed on the couch next to him.
"Jaime!", Nora shouted and rushed towards him, carefully avoiding the shards of the liqour bottle. She got on her knees and tried to take out the piece of glass stuck in Jaime's foot, but he pushed her away.
"What is wrong with you Jaime?", she asked him.
"I just returned from the Riverside Park", he said, looking Nora in the eyes.
Nora knew what was wrong, and her eyes filled with tears and regret.
