Incidentally, this actually happened to a friend of mine in high school. My best friend at the time convinced someone to call her and pretend he had died (also in a car accident). The difference here is that they didn't have any ulterior motives, they just wanted to make this poor girl cry. Also this is a sixteen year old kid committing the "prank" but I think it carries a little more weight when adults do it. I guess what i'm trying to say here is that these kids parents are acting like careless teenagers.
On one side, it's good that you admitted you have feelings for your friend. But that is most definitely NOT OKAY! A friends death is very traumatizing, especially someone who you love. Nobody should have to deal with shit like this from their own parents. I'm sorry for your parents lack of empathy or conscience.
That's cold! Op's parents should have just confronted her, not trick and manipulate! No parents would/should put their child in a situation where the child feels like her/his best friend died, I mine died (god forbid) I'd burst into tears! I would never forgive my parents! I wouldn't even look them in the eye!
Now you go find some member of the law enforcement and get them to call your parents saying YOU were kidnapped. Or actually get kidnapped, up to you.
That is all kinds of f*cked up. Have someone call them to say YOU died, see if they still think it's a good idea
There are plenty of reasons why you shouldn't necessarily confess that you love someone. Such as if they're in a relationship or something. Life isn't like a movie where you're the protagonist and you always end up with the person you want to and you just have to tell them and they will dump their shitty S.O. and date you instead. If you don't have a chance with someone and you tell them you're in love with them, it risks completely wrecking a friendship for absolutely no reason.
