Clay. Helmet. Your name does not belong on this list but you need to be here, if I’m going to tell my story, if I’m going to explain why I did what I did. Because you aren’t every other guy. You’re different. You’re good, and kind and decent. And I didn’t deserve to be with someone like you. I never would.

“Clay. Helmet. Your name does not belong on this list. But you need to be here if I’m going to tell my story. If I’m going to explain why I did what I did. Because you aren’t every other guy. You’re different. You’re good and kind and decent. And I didn’t deserve to be with someone like you. I never would. I would have ruined you. It wasn’t you. It was me.”
-Hannah

Clay is socially awkward and doesn’t always say or do the right thing but he is a good person.

He did nothing wrong. He did exactly what Hannah told him to. He always does what people tell him to do. He always follows the rules. Hannah was upset and told him to leave and so he did.

But if he’d just looked beyond what she was yelling at him, he would have seen that the last thing she needed at that moment was to be alone. If he’d stopped being so nervous and just told her how he felt things might have turned out differently. If he’d just stopped being Clay for a second he would have seen that it was a cry for a help.

If he’d just stayed with her Jessica never would have been raped, Sheri wouldn’t have knocked the stop sign over, Jeff wouldn’t have died and Hannah might still be alive.

Clay did nothing wrong. How was he to know what Hannah was going through if she never told him? Clay is not the kind of person who can read how people are feeling and know what’s going on inside their head.

Clay, who has the kindest, most pure heart, blames himself. He did nothing wrong but he could have stopped it. The ‘what if’s’ are going to haunt him for the rest of his life and that breaks my heart.

I walked forever that night. From my old neighbourhood where the houses were nicer than the one we lived in now. All the way up to the hill where the rich people live. Where you live. And from blocks away, I heard it. The music. The murmur of voices. The siren call of a party.
