d'Aller Jusqu'au Bout (to go until the bitter end)

By PENGUINGIRL1210

Romance / Drama

Prologue

Introduction

le 30 mai 2014

As I look outside, the wind blows carefully, and flakes of white begin to descend softly from the sky. My sad reflection appears from inside the window, watching me carefully with melancholic and vapid eyes.

A rare sight here—snow is—especially this time of year. I expected it to rain, joining in my tears, as it sometimes does this sad, forlorn day. At those moments, I wonder whether I have control over the forces of nature that work together with me. I know I don’t, but sometimes I like to pretend I can will the sky to be cheerful or sad when those moods fully construct me.

Mornings always instill in me my usual mood—paradoxical cheerfulness mixed with loneliness and melancholy, the feeling that washes over me as I take my usual walks among the flowers, wishing there were someone there with me to share in their joys. That mood returns to me now, weighing down my heart with its all-too familiar presence. Especially because I am alone now among the sleeping world as I look outside…

But today is no ordinary day, as the calendar and state of the world force me to remember. Feeling compelled by the fragile jewels, full of comforting light, slowly covering dear Paris in purity, I take up my old journal. And, leafing through its depressed, worn pages, I remember. I remember it all.

Mourn8220House: When first reading "Avarice," I thought it would be another fairytale but I was taken back the author's approach and choice of ending. There is little to be said for the story and overall plot besides the sudden twists and speculation, other than that I do not want to ruin a fantastic tale, you m...

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...

Castro Ohana: This book is a great read. I can't wait for the next one (I hope there is another). Like my title I could not put it down! It has just the right amount of drama, actions and wow moments. I also love it when the person you least expected becomes the hero. A few grammar errors but overall a great...

JenniferParks: This story is very progressive. I like the main characters so far ( i am on chapter 5) and i am hoping to read more chapters.

jessiehs: This was absolutely amazing. I loved how it went back and forth between perspectives. I actually cried at the end I was so happy. This was amazing. I can't even think of another word to describe it. Thank you for writing his.

mullikin902: Do not start reading this book unless you have enough time to finish it in one sitting, because you will not be able to put it down! Superlative! Addictive! Deliciously wicked characters you can't get enough of. Impatiently waiting for the sequel!

star_powered: Off Pitch is a fun and sexy lesbian romance filled with incredible humour (one of the few stories that has ever made me laugh out loud), heart-wrenching drama, and lots of fluff. The story respects and normalizes the wlw experience and doesn't resort to victimizing the main characters for plot de...

jessiealexandrap: Truly loving the novel, each chapter presents itself greater than the one beforehand. I truly love the novel and give definate question to why it's not published of yet. The novel truly deserves great attention and all should read the beautiful story.
