What happens when we grow up

A kid around my brother’s age just committed suicide, supposedly by overdose.

What am I supposed to say?

I told him I’d make sure his spirit felt me punching him in the face if he did that to himself. We laughed. I told him to do put away the dry dishes so that I could wash and dry the dirty ones like he didn’t just tell me that.

I feel unsettled.
