This was one of the best things ive ever read on here. Wait i lied. IT IS THE BEST. I am completely overwhelmed by everything this story told. I read it all today during school. I was way to into it to even pay attention to my teachers. Which is very hard considering i dont like to miss anything. This was AMAZING. i love it. well done.

I agree! Of course, I would probably cry through most of it. This is so amazing. I wish that I could write like this. Of course, if I could, I would make myself cry in five seconds. But he died! Just when she finally fell in love! So sad. :'<

 at 1:35am during a storm while listening to the song Arms of an Angel I found this story. I cried the whole time reading it and I am still crying. This made me feel really really really depressed.
