[CW] Forget prose, poetry, diary entries, etc. Tell a horror story using a numbered list.

Dear diary: I finally asked the girl at the coffee shop out! I know, it's been weeks, but I had to know she'd say yes. Getting into her email was the clincher. That's how I knew what kind of music she loves. Good thing she uses the public Wifi at the shop :-)

But I need to know if she's worth rescuing. So I decided to make a list of pros and cons. Here goes! :-P

Cons (always the negative first. Finish on a happy note, mommy always said. :-D) * I'll miss seeing her at the shop. * Cleaning up sucks :-( * Her hair is obviously dyed. I hate fake people. Does that make her fake? Ron always dyed his beard to get the white out, and it fooled mommy. Why not be yourself, Ron? Were you afraid she would hate how old you are? Oldy! She would have known if you didn't dye your beard :-[ * Lots of friends. They'll notice if she doesn't say anything. But I can reset her Facebook and say she went on a trip. And she will have! :-) (Not sure if that's still a con, but I have to be thorough. "Anything worth doing is worth doing right." See? I'm still a good boy. * I hate to see somebody I love scream. I wish they wouldn't. Why don't they understand that the pain purifies them? * All the others didn't understand. Why should she? Why do I even bother? Nobody understands. The only one that does is mommy. I mean, she said those things when I rescued her, but I know she didn't mean it. She was just putting on a show for Ron. I shouldn't have had him there. I tried to show her I was including him, but he was too weak. He just cried. I cried too, but it wasn't the same! I cried because of how beautiful it was. He cried because he couldn't see it. Stupid Ron! STUPID RON! Pros: (I had to go rescue a cute little kitty first. Stupid Ron.) * She'll always be beautiful and safe. :-) * She won't have to worry again. * Mommy will love her. She always said I needed to find somebody just like her. I saw her roots. Same color. You can't hide that under the purple, Kimmy! I can see the real you. * If I don't, she'll keep seeing Taylor. With his stupid tattoo, and his stupid blonde hair. Ron had blonde hair, and it didn't help him much, did it Ron? If I had blonde hair, I wouldn't have had to worry about you. But I won't dye it. I WON'T. Because I'm not fake. :-[ * She deserves to be an angel. Just like mommy. * If I don't, I might regret it. "Seize the day!" I always listen. I'm a good boy. * She hates her job. She said that to her friend. I can make her happy. I can make her pure. * She'll thank me. I know she will. :-) * It's the right thing to do. And I should always do the right thing. Even when it's tough. :-|

There are go! 6 con to 9 pro. I'm going to do it! Wish me luck, diary! I'll tell you all about it later! :-)
