Once there were two people named Marsha and Leroy. They were madly in love

with each other and there personalities were exactly alike. Marsha and Leroy were

absolutely perfect for each other except for two characteristics about each of them.

Marsha had a rather wealthy family and there neighborhood was on the East Side of

Atlanta. Leroy had no money at all and he lived in the projects on the West Side of

Atlanta. The problem wasn't that Marsha didn't want to go out with someone who wasn't

as financially stable as she was, or that Leroy was ashamed of where he lived. It was that

a few years before they knew each other they both got in gangs, Leroy got in a gang from

the west side and Marsha got in gang on the east side. These gangs where rival and if

anyone of there gang friends found out about there friendship both of them would be shot.

Neither Marsha or Leroy would ever sleep at night because they would spend

their nights deriving up plans so that they could either get out of there gang without being

killed or a way that they could see each other without being caught by either one of their

gangs. They never got to see each other because Leroy didn't have a phone and neither

one of them had cars.

Finally Leroy had to see and be with Marsha so he snuck out of his apartment stole

a car and drove it to the neighborhood where Marsha lived. He stood up by her room and

threw rocks up at her bedroom window until she looked out and said 'boy how you

trippin down there trying to through rocks up at this window know in I is fast sleep' then

she wiped the sleep from her eyes and saw that the person throwing rocks at her window

was Leroy. When she noticed that the person she was yelling at was Leroy she yelled with

excitement 'hey, what are you doing here, I'll be down in a second.' She ran down the

stairs and right as she came through the front door she got shot right in the head with a

9mm by one of the Leroy's fellow gangsters. He didn't know that they had followed him

to Marsha's house.

Leroy was filled with both anger and sadness at the same time because the only

reason he had for living was gone because Marsha was dead. So the next morning he got

up took one of his guns from under his bed and went around where all of the other gang

members where, and as each of them would wank up he would shoot them in the head just

like they did to Marsha. Soon after he was done with his killing spree he used the last

bullet on himself. He kneeled down on the ground put the gun in his mouth and killed

himself 'Curt Cobain Style'.
