I don't think that waking up is better

Romance / Drama

I don't think that waking up is better

A fall.

After a month I finally recovered my consciousness, that to hear people totally distraught for me, giving me for dead, trying to guess if my desire was to stay connected to the world with a machine or whether if I preferred to be free.

“Please, that's the kind of questions that you can’t formulate” I remember that I said, while a nurse took off the bandage that covered my head.

I never thought that making one of the best things that have happened in my life, being a cheerleader for the Cheerios, would bring so disastrous consequences that one person could face after years enjoying of good health. I promised not to panic at the time because I wasn’t even sure what was going on after a month of total unconsciousness, but then…

“After all the tests and studies that we are able to make we’ve come to one conclusion: its permanent blindness, the damage from the blow to the occipital cortex is irreversible”.

The words of the medical diagnostics have always seemed to me the most aggressive, violent and heartless that can exist in the world, but they certainly are totally accurate, they are the ones that dictate the lifestyle that a person must follow from now on.

The damage in my skull wasn’t that higher, the Cheerios insurance paid every penny of it, but only one thing was what they couldn’t improve in any way, because they say that a thorough invasion and reconstruction in my brain could cause other damages that neither they could foresee.

Now I'm blind, and I would really have liked to be turned off from the machine. Knowing that I'll never see again what happens around me doesn’t seem something nice. I don’t think that waking up is better in something like this, but I have to face it. No matter how much it costs…

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...

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.

FateFellShort: I have read this story and have followed the writers on tumblr from the beginning. Its a wonderful story. Beautifully written with a really nice pace, that makes it enjoyable to read more than once. For me, fairy tail has very good characters but what the writers have done is give them more depth...

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...

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...

MavisMcQueen: "To Live Again" is a well crafted, highly engaging, heart vibrating tale surrounding our favorite Elven King.

Elizabeth Robbins: 4.5 starsAs far as apocalypse stories go, this one took a new direction. I'm glad someone finally addressed the need for a vampire apocalypse! This is sort of a multi-genre festival of delights. With hints of forced societies, vamps, hunters, romance, apocalypse, government conspiracy, and thrill...

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.
