Chapter 1

"Hello"

"Oh, hello there"

"Nice weather today, eh?

"I wouldn't know, not much for weather"

"I'm sure if you looked up, you could form an opinion"

"No, just not one for it"

"Well, alright then"

"..."

"..."

"I think I might be dead"

"That's quite the conversation starter"

"Well, think about it"

"I did, and you can't be dead"

"Why not?"

"Because I'm not dead"

"Are you sure?"

"Most certainly"

"How would you know?"

"Because I know, or at least I hope so"

"So you don't know?"

"Not really, but if being dead is a feeling, and I don't feel it, it stands to reason that I'm not dead"

"What if you're just a really stubborn dead person?"

"Dead people can't be stubborn"

"Have you met any dead people?"

"I've met people before they were dead"

"Were they quite disagreeable?"

"Not particularly"

"Then there you go"

"I still think I can't be dead"

"Well then, what if you aren't, but I am?"

"What?"

"Well, say I was dead, and was talking to you, that's possible"

"If I were at the station and you were on the train, would you be able to converse with me?"

"... If I were at the door before the train took off"

"...Well, you got me there"

"..."

"..."

"If I do turn out to be dead, what is there to do about it?"

"Nothing, you're dead, that's what being dead is"

"... Seems like a waste of time"

"More like punishment for it"

"How do you figure?"

"How did you live your life?"

"To be honest, it still feels like I'm living it"

"Life had to continue for you. Your normal life isn't saturated enough, not enough in there to call it a full bottle, so what's left to do but to never close the cap?"

"You know a lot for a living person"

"who knows, maybe I am dead, like you said before"

"That would be a right shame"

"No, why know more about the dead than the living, if they don't care to listen?"

"... I'm listening"

"But will you remember?"

"I suppose not, if I'm dead"


"..."

"I think, if I were alive, we could've been friends"

"Maybe"

"Would you have liked that?"

"I don't know. What's there to be friends about?"

"... So what shall we depart as?"

"... Let's depart as just people, neither friend nor foe, just two people"

"---------"

"I'm sorry, I didn't quite catch that"

"---------"

"As it should, as it should"

Sarah D: I absolutely adore this novel, it really tugs at the heart strings. I work with autistic young people and the way the story is told is unmistakably beautiful and is written in a why that deals with the subject of autism in the kindest manner I strongly recommend this to everyone.

fellipxx: I loved this novel, it was very sweet and big on the emotions I really enjoyed it and could not stop reading not even for a second, I even cried a little bit at a few touching moments too. And overall I found this book sweet, realistic and cheesy (I like the cheesy stuff).

bspookysdm: Loving this story❤️

Lovelyn Laurelle: This book is interesting. It does capture the readers attention. The strong female lead can get too egotistical for her own good, but then again the author probably has his/her reason for that. Love the word play, definitley would love to finish the book to see what happens in the end. Will it be...

NorahSB: I totally love this book, it is funny. Interesting, I just can't wait to read more. I love it so much, I totally pray that the guys all end up altogether. My delicious babies.

Stephanie Rankin: An amazing book but definitely nee work on grammer and way the sentences are written out

Sara Rastikhah: Some spelling and grammer mistakes. Sometimes it feels like English is new to the writer. But I am into the story! I have to see her win this.

LeviHawk: Great story, lots of mostly unexpected plot twists, that I suspected but still were quite a surprise. The ending was so sad though, which I wouldn't change because not all stories have a happy ending. Would definitely buy if this was published!

emma oldham-sear: Had me up til 4am not wanting to stop reading! Ofc I loved the ending :)
