He commit a seriously heinous crime that nobody thought he was capable of. People loved him, he was the “golden boy” of the town. Now he’s in prison for the rest of his life. He reached out to me but I wanted nothing to do with him afterwards. He was my best friend since we were toddlers, and at 23 he raped and attempted to murder a 12 year old. He was a teacher. No, it is not a case of false accusations, he texted me admitting to it, and there was a MOUNTAIN of evidence against him.


They kept making excuses until I gave up and stopped trying to reach out to them.


He died and I didn’t.


I realized that I couldn’t deal with their… Everything anymore. The constant drama, the misplaced outrage, the moodiness… Life was simpler when I realized that my being around all of that was optional.


We became business partners and the rest is history…
