Part 1 :: A chance Encounter
I used to work at a suicide hotline
You’d be surprised on how many non-suicide calls you can get there.
Sometimes lonely people would call because they were being bullied, depressed, or in an abusive relationship.
Other times we’d get prank calls, or even just disturbing ones.
As operators, even if a creep or a perv calls we can’t just be frank and tell them that no one wants to hear about their... awkward fetishes.
My Center of work as an operator wont be named for understandable reasons...but over the years of volunteering, there has been some calls that has deeply affected me or left me Confounded & none might be said to be as strange as the Incident that I have decided to share.
The Incident began with a girl named Riley.
I was still quite new to operating when the girl named Riley called.
Riley’s case was quite different from the ones I was used to handling (such as prank calls, actual suicide calls, creep calls, etc.).
She had called asking for advice on her suicidal best friend.
Caller: “H-Hi, my name is Riley. Could you help me?”
Me: “Of course, we’re here to help.”
Caller: “I think my friend is suicidal...”
Me: “What makes you think that?”
Caller: ”She... she told me once she wasn’t happy at home. She sometimes gets picked on at school too. But sometimes... sometimes she mentions suicide.
I just want to help her! But I don’t know what to do... I don’t want her to commit suicide, she’s my best friend.”
Riley talked hastily, her nerves showing in her voice.
Me: “Okay, Riley?I can call you Riley, right?”
Caller: ”Oh, sure.”
Me: “Okay, Riley, let’s not jump to conclusions right away. Has your friend been acting strangely?”
Caller: ”Um, kind of? She’s avoiding me. Avoiding everyone, really.
She doesn’t respond to calls or texts from me or anyone, it’s like she doesn’t exist outside of school.
She quit art club, which she loves... or used to anyways.
I’m worried because she’s never done anything like this?completely shutting down.”
Me: “Have you tried speaking to her about this?”
Caller: “No... I’m scared that she’d distance herself more, or hate me.”
Me: “And why would she hate you for worrying about her?”
Caller: ”Yeah, you’re right. But how would I bring up the topic though?”
Me: “Remember, hypothetically your friend might also be afraid of being hated and avoided by you too.”
Caller: ”So she doesn’t get hurt?”
Me: “Yes, you could say it in that way. But this is just hypothetically.”
Caller: ”OK, I get it. I think I know how to talk to her. Thanks so much for listening. I think I just needed someone to listen to my worries.”
Me: “No problem, good luck with your friend.”
Caller: ”Wait, can I have your name so I can maybe talk to you again?”
Me: “Oh, we generally aren’t allowed to, but ask for the name Jenny the next time you call and I’ll try to be with you again.”
Caller: ”Okay, thanks, miss! Have a good day.”
That was Riley’s first call.
I was quite proud of myself for being useful to someone, but my conversation with Riley was soon forgotten as I carried on taking calls.
About a month passed by normally,well as much normal as it can get in a place like the Center, until Riley’s next call.
