"Life's no fun if you're not insane, otherwise you grow up to be an accountant." -Moi


How in tune to the ticking of the clock our lives seemed to be, dashing here and there like little white rabbits, watches out shouting “I’m late! I’m late!”. Expediency is as expediency does as the world becomes more modern; prepackaged food, faster transportation, instant messaging, texting, and high-speed internet. Marriages for a few short months, surgeries and treatments are invented to try to stop time. There are so many things to see and experience that we seldom stop to really appreciate them.

And in this endless tumult you and I have become “us”; two now thought of as one.

I remember the times before, how we danced about the subject while everyone was saying “You should go out.” or, “You guys make a cute couple.”. But we were still inseparable, best friends. And too shy to be anything more.

And after two years of beating around the bush, we are finally together, and the one thing that we don’t have, is time.

I agree with Elisaveitta. I, too, love reading classics, and I feel that if you take time to write a book (one that is thoughtful), it would be conceder one. Not to intrude on your work, but if you would take Sticks and Stones, same idea, but where the girl DOESN"T die, but she gets revenge on the "Barbies" in the future (take off on my faveroite book, The Count Of Monte Cristo), it could be a 'classic'. Great Job, I love yoru Work!

Right now I'm hating this story, wondering what the heck I ever saw in that guy. ZERO

I. Love. This.

You have a very pleasing style and flow to your writing that just pulls me in so fast. Believe me, I've read hundreds of books, including classics, and you have the talent for writing something very powerful that could change a lot of lives.
