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.

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

christylynnr5: This was beyond amazing! I loved this book. The characters seemed so real. It was amazing how the author let Zak and Kaylees personalities slowly change. This story was very sad and eye opening. It could teach some people a very worthy lesson. It was a great combination of romance, mystery, and a...

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.

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...

maewilde25: I am so in love with this story!!! captivated me till the very end, there wasn't a dull moment.
