NEW STORY/ Sequel part 4a

(NEXT DAY. GEE’S POV)
Juliet had spent all day in her room. Or so we thought. I asked Ray if he’d seen her, and he said he hadn’t seen her. The other guys had the same response. I looked in her room, but she wasn’t there. I tried Luke’s old car (which was now hers) but she wasn’t there either. Finally, I tried the roof. “JULIET! GET DOWN FROM THERE!” I yelled when I found her sitting on the ledge of the flat roofed building. “Tell me that it’s not going to hurt. Tell me that I won’t feel a thing.” I shook my head. “What’s not going to hurt?” I asked her. “Jumping.” I ran towards her. “Why in the hell would you kill yourself?!” She wiped a tear away. “To be with Luke again. It’s all my fault that he’s dead. I want to be with him again.” She said. “Juliet Capulet! Get your ass off of that ledge now. This is not going to solve anything. It’s not your fault.” She whirled around at me and yelled “YES IT IS!!! I should’ve been more careful! I was the one who was supposed to be protecting him! IT’S BECAUSE OF ME THAT THE LOVE OF MY LIFE IS DEAD!” I was getting more and more worried by the second. Since we dated a few years ago, I’d been very protective of her. I didn’t want to see her like this. “C’mon. You know this isn’t going to solve anything. Come down from there.” She gingerly stepped down from the ledge and collapsed in my arms. I’d never seen her that broken up about anything before. “He’s gone.” She said over and over again.
Then from the door, I heard Frank calling me. “I’ll be right back.” I said to her. “We just got a transmission from Dr. D.”
