Look, at this point I wasn't even trying to be emotional over anything anymore. I was actually almost having a mental breakdown over the position of this building. I didn't wanna land anywhere where I'd cause trouble for anyone else but this was pretty difficult if you had parking spaces and sidewalks on all four sides of the building. Other than that, the fourth side was at least frequented less often which was fine but it was also a bit more elevated than the rest of the surroundings.
Frustrated, I took a seat on one of these strange blocks and looked at my phone. Almost 2 am. I told the others I went out today which was at least half true. I decided to wait a bit longer since it wasn't a weekday and some people were still around the area at this time. Maybe I could scroll through Instagram a bit to pass the time.

Eight floors statistically wasn't enough for certain death, but apart from the Decker Towers being the highest building in the entire state of Vermont, I highly doubted that if I jumped now and survived that, someone would find me in time for me to live through the injuries. It would be painful to bleed out on the pavement with probably several broken bones, but I'd given that enough thought already for it to not scare me out of doing this tonight. The pain would be over at some point, and when I was dead, I wouldn't remember it anyways - neither that nor the rest of the bullshit that took over my life. And I'd rather feel agonizing physical pain for some minutes to hours than live one more day with that.
Those were all very compelling arguments, but still, I felt a clump forming in my throat when I stepped on the rooftop and saw the entire town in front of, or rather, beneath me. It really wasn't that high, a building like this would be laughed at in any other state capital, but when everything else is tiny, even the small things feel giant. It was like walking into a room full of nine year-olds as a seventh grader.
I inhaled the freezing air and felt my breath shaking, from both the cold and nervosity, just as the door fell shut behind me. I still didn't move towards the edge. It had something intimidating about it, and against my hopes, that didn't get any better with my eyes adjusting to the dark once the light from inside was gone. And then there was another thing - my vision was a bit unclear, as I wasn't sure if at this point I had high levels of alcohol in my blood or rather high levels of blood in my alcohol, so I wasn't able to identify the light that appeared to be here on the roof with me, but upon further investigation that involved squinting my eyes, focusing really hard and walking a few steps in teh direction, it turned out to be... a phone? Attached to a person, by the way.
At first, my intoxicated brain didn't quite get the memo. I got the seperate infos, sure: I was standing on top of the state's highest building at 2 am, and apparently there was another person here, who turned out to be a guy from my history class if I recognized him right. This didn't seem normal of course, but it took that exact second longer for me to realize what was going on than to open my mouth and (very drunkenly, I had not expected to sound this fucked up) bluntly asking him what he was doing here. And when he didn't seem to notice me, instead of paying attention to that heaven-sent sign and just turning around and leaving to avoid a conversation I really didn't want to have, I walked up to him completely and grabbed his shoulder from behind, repeating my question, a bit more clearly this time. Apparently my mind and body didn't work as a team any more.

Alright, I wanted to die tonight but not like this! And I dropped my phone in shock, as if the screen wasn't cracked enough already. Wow, that guy sure was lucky I was able to stop myself from screaming, both out of fear and out of anger. So here I was, staring wide-eyed at whoever wanted to kill me and after a few seconds I clicked.
Even if it was difficult recognising his face just with the help of a very weak light in the distance, I recognised this guy. We used to have at least one class together, didn't we? Does that mean he possibly lives around here as well? I mean I could ask at least one of these questions, but instead I decided I wanted to know something else from him.
"Killing yourself today as well, aren't we? God, you reek of alcohol, buddy. We had a class together, right? Out of all places where we could meet again, we run into each other here... strange, isn't it?" I smiled at him and pushed his hand off my shoulder, then I proceeded to get up and pick my phone off the ground. "You owe me something for that, don't you think?", I sneered, waving around my currently restarting phone. "But you do you. I'm not gonna stand in your way tonight. Just don't go around scaring people like that, alright?"

Those were some too many words for me right now. My head was already hurting all by itself and at first was so thrown off by teh way this dude talked that I wasn't able to actually pay attention to what he was saying, so when he finally finished, I only knew to respond to his last sentence.
"I called for you when I was still standing back there dude, cut the attitude. It's not my fucking fault you're not paying attention." I complained and rubbed my forehead. "And stop screaming at me, I'll hear you if you talk normally."

"Alright, listen, I didn't quite hear what you just said there but you certainly don't look too good there, you know? Did you hit your head? Alcohol got to your head too fast?" He did rub his head just now so I might as well point that out, I'm not blind after all.
To be very honest, I was starting to become interested what motivated him to come up here, having just about the same plan as me. I mean, the alcohol was one motivating factor, but there was certainly more behind it. After all, I didn't really know him that well. Except for seeing him in class here and there, exchanging a few words maybe. I squinted at him in slight wonder.
By the way, how long would it take until he finally notices there might be something off? I was starting to get bored with not understanding what he might be trying to communicate.

"Hearing just isn't your strength in General, is it? Are you deaf or something, I told you to stop talking this loud, you're gonna wake someone." I replied, pretty annoyed still, but calmer than befor. After all he wasn't attacking me any more, so Theres was no reason to actually get offended. Although it was pissing me off that he didn't seem like he heard me this time. Until there was that little "click" in my head. "Wait, you're actually deaf, aren't you?" I asked. And now I was getting curious. Was he up here because of this (vor was it ableisten if me to assume that)? Or was Theres something else in his life? I didn't know him, but when I had seen him in class he'd always struck me as someone who has their shit together.
After thinking about that, I noticed that, should I be right, he didn't hear that last question either, so I repeated it and pointed at him, then my ear in the process.

I really tried fighting a smile, I wanted to appear sad and serious but to be honest, I didn't give two shits anymore. "Bingo, you're correct, good sir. So if you were asking me any questions earlier, I apologise for not answering them. But, you know, it's a bit difficult to understand for me, isn't it?" I hope this sounded as sassy as I wanted it to, I haven't spoken this much in a while after all. I wasn't even trying to come across as hostile or anything but I was starting to get impatient. Just you wait, there'll be someone coming up here and arresting us before I can say "I'm deaf". Then both our plans would be screwed.

"Yeah, obviously, now be quiet I bet we're already waking up the neighbours here" I tried to shush him and lifted my finger in front of my lips. But apparently it was already too late for both of us. Or it wasn't actually, depending on persective. But tonights plans definitely went out the window when the roof door popped open and the light from inside hit the floor.
An almost silent "Fuck" escaped my lips while my fight or flight reflex tried to determine if I should just take the jump right here and now or else, but before I could decide it was probably already too late. Well fuck. Now I had even more shit to deal with than before I came up here, which was definitely not what I was going for.

Speak of the devil and he's sure to appear. I admit it was technically, partially, maybe my fault that we got caught up here, but I can't quite control the volume of my voice here. Either way, the janitor seemed to yell something directed at us and my new friend in suffering yelled something back. God, I really wished I could've been able to hear at this moment, because I wasn't in such a bad condition as that guy next to me and maybe could've articulated whatever he said much better.
Anyways, the janitor looked tired and exasperated enough to tell he didn't have a lot of nerve to deal with two kids yelling on some roof at 2 am. A few minutes later, we were stranded on the ground floor outside the house. "Now what?", I asked, turning to my obviously stressed out and not any less sober partner in "crime".

The janitors question who was up here meant one of us had to respond, and it wasn't going to be the other dude, so I had to think of something. Luckily this wasn't the first time I got caught in a place where I shouldn't be, so I had something ready. Well, kind of.
"I'm sorry, there's a party going downstairs and we just wanted to get some fresh air." I shouted back, to which the janitor just squinted his eyes. He could hear that I was drunk, obviously, but the story didn't quite convince him anyways. Which was understandable. "Then why didn't you just use the fucking balcony?" he asked at about the same time as deaf boy asked me what we should do now. As if I had a clue.
Luckily, the janitor was about as done with his job as we were with our life, so he didn't really care that I just stared at him in shock for several seconds as an answer to his question. He just told us to get our asses back inside, and I pulled my new comrade with me. He didn't ask any questions when we didn't go back to our "party downstairs" and just left the building instead either. So that was good. Just... Now what?, As the other had uttered so well back up there.
"So I'm guessing you don't have anything else planned for tonight either." I said, well aware that he couldn't hear me. But what was I supposed to do, I didn't have a phone, not to mention a pen and paper. And it would feel kind of weird to just part ways right here and now.

Sighing, I fumbled around with my phone in my pocket until I grabbed a hold of it and felt a pinch when I got reminded of its damaged screen. Which is still that guy's fault because he made me drop it. "I need to get a new one...", I mumbled in exasperation while I opened the notepad app. I was surprised it was even working at this point, to be honest. "Anyways, if you got something to say to me, write it up here and hand it over to me to read it. Considering you're still able to type in your current state, but maybe autocorrect will be of help", I added with a raised eyebrow.
"By the way, I'm Mateo. I think we got history class together in uni." I eyed my new friend up and down. He didn't seem like he'd be better off alone at this moment. Not to mention the way he kept swaying side to side on occasion. Maybe I should take him in overnight.
As he handed me the phone back, I knew I had to take him in because otherwise he wouldn't survive on his own. I mean, he wouldn't have wanted that today anyway, but- "Yra I knew Is seen you thre, I'm Soon", is what the message read, by the way. So I had to take a long hard look at "Soon" again and just urged him to follow me with a curt "come with me" before I started heading down the street with him trailing behind. Let's see what I got myself into again. At least no one died tonight. Even if both of us wanted to. Well, I still kinda wanted to but now because of different reasons. Like the bus not coming anymore at half past two in the morning.

So I guess that's is what I was doing now. Just following this dude - Mateo. I didn't know why he wanted me to follow him, maybe he just didn't want to leave a drunk fella behind, and the rest of the situation spoke for itself. And I for myself didn't really care what I was doing or where I was going. I was supposed to be dead by now, so it didn't really matter I thought, and maybe I'd be dead in a few days instead, so even less importance to this. And I didn't know where else to go, or rather where else to go where people wouldn't ask me where I'd gone for the last two hours. Oh great, another thing to look forward to. For most of them I could just say I went home with some girl whose name I don't remember, but I'd run into a problem there with Tyler. Didn't I want to get rid of all of my problems tonight? Now I had more than before and honestly, I just wanted to cry, or turn around and go back to the top of that building to jump, or at least hide under several thick blankets for at least the duration of my entire remaining time at college. But neither of those seemed plausible or possible right now, mainly because I didn't want to break down crying in front of what was basically a stranger and because the janitor had locked both the entrance to the towers and the roof door, so I had to limit my mental breakdown to a quiet chant of repeating "fuck" over and over again while I buried my face in my hands and tried to breathe calmly, all the while walking behind Mateo to wherever. I was just hoping there'd be at least one blanket to hide under at our destination.

During our journey back to the campus I kept checking if my hearing friend was still around since I wouldn't know even if he dropped dead behind me. He seemed to struggle with literally everything possible, both physically and mentally, but he still managed to trail behind like a duckling that imprinted on me and thinks I'm its mother.
The long walk back gave me quite some time to distance myself from my emotional numbness. Keeping on repressing all these things that led me to make this decision, it was tiring for sure. I seriously gotta sort out myself as soon as possible. Speaking of soon, maybe I should also be a bit less cold to "Soon" as well. He seems even worse off on his own like that. "You alright there?", I asked, turning to check on him shortly. He waved his hand around in a so-so motion, so I suppose it wasn't near death yet.
"So then, bathroom's to the right if you need it, you can have the bed as well, you need some sleep", I explained while unlocking the door to my room. The first thing I did after shutting the door behind us was opening up the window. I've kept myself locked up in here for quite some time after all so the air in there was quite thin. "And try not to make a mess in here, getting vomit out of that carpet is not fun", I said before leaving the room to get some water for the two of us.
