|Molly sat on her bed for a long while, staring across her room at the picture stuck in the corner of her mirror. It was slightly wrinkled, but in fairly good condition. Molly's eyes were filled with longing and admiration for the boy in the picture. Suddenly, her door burst open and her mother walked into her room.
"What the fuck are you doing?" Her mom screamed; Molly's report card in her hand. "What kind of grades are these? Are you stupid?!"
Molly didn't move. She sat in the same spot, never glancing from the picture. Her mom stared at her in disgust. She followed Molly's gaze and discovered the picture.
"So that's it, huh? Still crying over your old boyfriend? Huh?!" and she grabbed Molly's arm, trying to force her to look at her. Molly pulled her arm back and continued staring, ignoring her mother. "All right, I can see this is what's been distracting you from your work," Mother said, and walked over to the mirror. She grabbed the picture and ripped it down the middle. Molly flinched. Her mother didn't see this however, thinking Molly was still unaffected. She reached into her back pocket and pulled out a dark red lighter. She produced a flame and held it under the picture. "Maybe now you'll learn," she said in a nasty way, and let the picture catch flame. The corners curled and soon crumbled. After a few seconds, her mom dropped it on the floor and stomped it out. She then walked passed Molly, thowing her report card at her and saying, "Get better grades, or more is going to burn than a stupid photo. And clean up that mess." Then she left the room.
Molly looked down at the black remains of her last keepsake; last physical memory of him. She stood up and picked the pieces off the floor. After she crumbled them in her hand, she dropped them in the waste basket. Her head felt as if it was being compressed and her vision got blurry. She laid down on her bed, and cried. She cried until she couldn't anymore, and fell asleep, late into the night.
