Chapter 13: Norman's Breakdown

Norman went home, upset. “Hey Norman, how’s your day?” said Shelia. “I don’t want to talk about it.” said Norman. “Norman, what’s going on?” asked Shelia, starting to feel concern.

Norman goes to the his bedroom and starts to have a breakdown, he began to scream in sadness. He began to punch a wall 5 times before going to the bathroom to break the mirror, Shelia went to see what’s going on and finds Norman breaking down. “Norman, stop! You don’t need to do this.” said Shelia, shocked. “I can’t take it anymore, I want it to stop!” said Norman. “Tell me what’s wrong?” Said Shelia. “I can’t tell you!” shouted Norman. “Little nephew, just tell me what’s wrong. What’s going on?” said Shelia, wanting to know what’s wrong with Norman. “My friend Percy, he attempted to commit suicide. And he’s at the hospital. And I left the team because the past about the tornado affected me so much. I can’t even take this pain anymore, my parents’ death also affected me. I don’t think I could handle it any longer.” said Norman, crying. “Norman, calm down. It’s gonna be OK, please don’t do this. You got me so worried, I want you to live on. Your parents want you to live, because they want you to be happy like everyone else. Even your sister Advika is moving on, she wants you to be happy, too. I want you to be strong, be strong for everyone.” said Shelia.

Shelia gives Norman a warm hug, Advika came home and sees her brother Norman being comforted by their aunt Shelia. Advika feels concerned about Norman, she gives him a hug as well.

After Norman is calm down, he is taking a nap. Shelia hears a knock on the door, she opened the door, and it is Chuck, Samuel, and Malaysia. “Hello, who are you guys?” said Shelia. “Hi, I’m Chuck. And this is Samuel and Malaysia, Norman’s group members. We’re here to see if Norman’s OK.” said Chuck. “Norman’s taking a nap, but y’all can come on in.” said Shelia. “Thank you, ma’am.” said Chuck.

Chuck, Samuel, and Malaysia goes in, and finds Norman sleeping in his bed. “Norman, wake up.” said Samuel. Norman wakes up and sees Malaysia, Chuck, and Samuel have arrived to see him. “Hey, guys.” said Norman. “Hey, we’re sorry that you got very upset. We love you, Norman. We’re going to make things right for you.” said Chuck. “I forgive you guys, I’m sorry that I got angry at you.” said Norman. “We forgive you, too. You are innocent, kind, and shy to everyone. They all adore you and your innocent blue eyes, we all adore you.” said Malaysia.

Norman sits up on the bed, Malaysia kisses Norman on the cheek. Lennox watches the group comforting Norman. “What a beautiful ladybug she is.” said Lennox.
