I jumped out of the way as a half full cardboard box came tumbling down the stairs aiming for me. The box hit the hard floor, erupting with sweatshirts and posters of mine. I frantically tried to pick up everything at once, but fail when cd cases begin hitting me. Four of them.

My first time burning a cd was at the end of my junior year; I spent two months figuring out what type of music Cecilia liked. May 15, I ran home from school, tripping and cutting open my lip on my way inside. Closing my bedroom door behind me, I threw everything off of my desk, leaving drops of blood in place of the textbooks that were now open with pages ripped, laying innocently on the floor.
I was late to school the next morning. I failed my math test that afternoon. None of that mattered when I handed Cece the cd after school; she hugged me. This would be the very first hug that my girlfriend of four and a half years would give me.

A picture frame broke me out of my nostalgic haze as it struck my arm, sending glass through my skin. A picture of me and Cece from our first date fell to the floor. I looked up to the top of the staircase to see her standing there, tears all over her face still throwing my belongings hysterically down the stairs.

I couldn’t bare to look at her. Her beautiful face was bright red, radiating with anger and embarrassment. Cece dumped the last of my clothes down the flight of stairs along with a dirty look.
Picking up as much as I could, my arms quickly filled. I walked again to my car, which was sitting in the driveway of the house me and my girlfriend used to live in together. I threw everything into the back of the car and got into the driver's seat. My head came into contact with the wheel as I lowered it, regretting a lot of things. Sighing, I lifted my head and looked into what used to be my bedroom window to see my ex-girlfriend with a boy, the boy she cheated on me with.
I pulled out of the driveway and turned up the radio, drowning myself in the mindless pop music. Peering into the back of my car, my eyes landed on the first cd I ever made for her. I burst into tears, starting to drive faster.
