Background Info: The Character is a depressive hiding behind a see of false smiles.

Why do you all think I am happy with life, I walk by and everyone says, hey there's Kyle he's always happy he's a bit of a laugh, but you don't see my pain. I see you all when YOUR happy, kissing your girlfriends, when YOUR sad you get a great big hug. When I'm happy no-one cares, when I am sad no-one cares, I cry my self to sleep night after night praying that next morning I wont be alone.

I sometimes think that everything will be fine, I watch so many films where the sad guy ends up happy but I live in a little village called Newchurch, NOT Hollywood. You think, awwww, he such a gent, he's so sweet. If this is true why am I still alone, why am I chosen over cretins with no respect.

In twenty years time I see myself with a crap job, no life worth living and no-one to love- but it doesn't matter now for now I see that its not over and I need to live for me, not for her.
