I was thinking about how amazing I felt until the shocking noise of a gunshot came upon us. I disappeared, hoping to not get caught by a bullet. I looked around to ensure no one was hurt, but Marie was on the ground. I remained invisible as I approached Marie with tears in my eyes, but Candi did not.
