"Last year, when we started school, Rachel and I started hanging out with Molly and Megan. And it was fun at first. But then Rachel started talking to Molly's boyfriend. And Molly said it first, she said that we had to teach Rachel a lesson. And I thought that she was just joking, that we were gonna, you know, like, take her into the woods and scare her, but I should have stopped them. And I know that. But They made me do it. They made me kill my best friend."
