100 Word Story/III

It was a new day and Kevin had a new attitude to go with it.  He had finally had enough of Eddie’s bullying.  Eddie would receive a swift punch in the face come lunchtime.
However, when Kevin’s mother dropped him off at school, something felt very wrong.  A discernable pall hung over the grounds of Central Lamar Middle School.
As Kevin approached the front of the administration building, he saw Sandra standing by a tree, bawling her eyes out.

“Sandra?  What happened?”

Sandra peered up at Kevin with drowning cornflower eyes.  “Edward Mason is dead.  He shot himself last night.”
