10 Minutes

I have ten minutes left of oxygen. There’s no point in trying to speak to waste more, so I’m going to think my final thoughts instead. I’m sorry to everyone I’ve ever wronged. I didn’t mean to hurt you; I just don’t know what I was thinking.

I’m sorry I’ll never marry you, Dayus, because I really like you and I don’t want to live without you, but you’ll have to live without me. I don’t even think you notice the way I speak to you sometimes. Oh well. Forgive and forget.

I’m sorry, mom and dad, I’ll never see you again. I’m drifting in space, a dream I’ve always had, and won’t get to say all the wonderful memories I’ve created with you.

 I love every one of my friends, and I’ll miss you. Please don’t forget me, I know you’ll never hear this, but please don’t forget me.

I wish I could kiss you Dayus, but you’re busy on earth where you will still live.

What will happen to me, will I go to heaven, to purgatory, to the underworld… to hell? Lord, or God, or whichever magical being controls us after death, please don’t let me go to hell, I’m sorry for every wrong thing I did, I’m so, so sorry.

I have about 5 minutes left now. I wish I had the time to properly say goodbye to you, but the world doesn’t seem to want me too. I hope everyone lives their lives normally, but doesn’t forget me.

 I want you to always remember me. I already thought that, darn it! I’ll miss you all.

 I love you Dayus, I love you, Molly, my sweet golden retriever, who will never have her ears scratched by me again. I’ll miss you all. Now I’m crying, and my breathing is picking up, so I will have to wrap this up.

I’m sorry to everyone. I’ve let you down. Please don’t hate me. I have about a minute left; it’s getting hard to breathe.

I’m scared. I don’t want to die; I don’t want to leave this world. Why do I have to die, I’m scared, I want my mom and dad and Dayus, I want to be back home.

My vision is getting fuzzy now and its getting even harder to breathe. I’m sorry if these are my last thoughts, I want you all to know…

 I love you.

Jenn Deering: This is a go-to story for when you're needing a little happiness in your life. It's well-crafted, and characters are true to their show-selves. The pace is right, there are minimal grammatical errors, and the plot is fresh.

Jean Tryon: As a beta, I found this story outstanding!! Plot, grammar, phraseology, etc Rachel gives us it all. She takes the story into the future from where due South ends. She is an exacting and thoughtful author.

LesAnne: I've never come across a plot like this, and I like its originality. At first, the title gave me the impression that the story is about friends making bets, but I've been proven wrong. I like the personality of the female main character, how evident her strengths and weaknesses are. She's become ...

Hannah Hall: This story will have you in tears in a good way. One of the best love stories written. Share with your friends and family!

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

PurpleInkling: Hippocrite is spelt hypocrite.Also it is an awesome story! A good one after so long. I was hoping someone would write a good fanficiton playing off what Ron said at the station. You are doing a remarkable job. It would have been interesting if Albus had also ended up in Ravenclaw though that mig...

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

Jessie: I wrote a review on fanfiction but I thought it would be fitting to write on on here too :) This story was honestly stunning. I am a budding writer myself and to read this- to FEEL this- reminded me of why I am honoured to have this passion and drive for a craft that is just so raw and beautiful.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top. I feel like sometimes pairings can be overdone but I liked that some of the relationships were a little...
