Summary:

I was happy.
My life was perfect. If you asked my mother, my stepdad or anyone else I know, they would not agree. But me, I was perfectly content.
Yesterday was the best day of my life. My mother was worried sick, but for me, it was epic.
The doctor, too, wouldn’t agree. She’s the one who told me I have leukaemia.
And it’s killing me.
Within the next six months, I’ll be dead.
I’m so happy.
For the last year or so, I’ve been contemplating the different ways to kill myself. I guess I got lucky.
Little did I know, that something was about to change my life in ways I never imagined possible. Something that would prepare me to fight for my life.

I loved your story! It's characters made it all the more real and your descriptions of them made a clear picture in my mind. At first I thought that Silver's name would end up being cheesy but it was really unique and well used with that character. :)

  The story went along smoothly and i really liked the last words of the story. "Or Silver" very clever on your part... The title of the book was perfect, your chapter titles were pretty good, and overall the story was AMAZING

“There comes a time in our lives when we do things that we don’t understand. We confuse ourselves, we might even logically oppose our impulses and yet we act on them anyway... There are some things that we feel that we absolutely must do. We might know that they are wrong, or pointless, or gravely punishable, and yet we do them anyway. These actions are not born of anger or emotion – we are perfectly sober. It’s rather inexplicable. When the time comes, we can’t stop ourselves and so we cannot blame ourselves.” -Umasi, Truancy

Thank you! I started out on this site just to get my poems out there, but now I'm hoping many people will look them over and give me some good advice! :)

thanks so much! i'm glad someone likes my writing! and is envious of it! :)

the way i came up with it... well i thought a little about the cliche 'boy next door' kind of story and elaborated upon it a bit with the leukaemia thing. i'm not quite sure where i got the leukaemia idea from... maybe the fact i'm a little cancer cautious and my grandfather had just passed (not from cancer).

i promise to check out some of your work sometime!

This is better than your other one! I was in tears through most of it. I'm still envious of your style of writing and I hope to see more of your works in the future! If I may, how did you think this plot up, was it just a thought or an experience?
