This morning she had woke up, feeling like something had been missing. She then realized that her friends had left her alone the other day, left her alone to defend herself. What did she expect? No one liked her. There was nothing left for her here, except her job as a waitress at Heart Cafe. She jumped out of bed and grabbed her skiing jacket that was hanging off the  end of the bed. She went into the bathroom, and looked at herself. She looked absolutely horrible. She began to chuckle, giggle, and before long, she was laughing uncontrollably, tears running down her haggard face.

After taking a sad shower. She went to the porch, where she found the remains of her dinner last night. There was an extra soy sauce packet left from her pancit canton mix. She pocketed it. She then pulled out her phone. "Xylie?" A warmhearted teaching assistant who used to tutor her on the side. Suddenly, her stomach began to grumble. She bent over as a sharp grab of pain pulled into her chest. "W-what...." 

"Stella!" John, a noisy sports coach, shouted from across the street. "ARE YOU OKAY?" 'Of course I'm not.' She thought, before promptly passing out. Never to wake again

It was on the news the next day. Xylie Afuang, a waitress nobody, had been murdered. The culprit was still unknown. Her body had frozen out in the long and extremely cold weather, as it was winter. So the police expected foul play.

"So," began the warmhearted judge, "you suspect that your daughter had been murdered by her ex boyfriend?" "That's right." Her mom nodded tearfully. Her son, Stella's younger brother, squealed as he played with his toy plane, waving it around.

"I feel that Mark had never really gotten over their breakup. Not only that, but he was spotted near the scene of the crime! It must've been him!"

Before the judge could speak, ALIENS INVADED BECAUSE OF A STUPID PROMPT. The passionate bailiff fought them off but it was too late
