"Pearl! Pearl do you hear me?! P-pearl??" Larry's voice breaks as he stares at the girl laying limp in his hands, worry plastering his face. He was kneeling on the floor beside her carefully tucking her bronze hair being her ears and leaning into her chest. But it was no use. Pearl felt her heavy eyelids close, the sound of cries turning into darkness...

Chapter 1

Pearl was born with a condition that was very rare. The doctors said that only 2% in the world population had her condition.
"But isnt there anything you can do about it doc?" her dad had pleaded while her mom was just clutching the baby crying hysterically.
"Sorry sir but we haven't got any diagnosis for it."
"L-larry honey. Please c-calm down.." Thea had pleaded, her eyes not leaving the baby in her hands.
The female doctor had just stood there clutching her board and pen suddenly feeling timid in front of this angry man.
"I'm s-sorry sir.. But you need to calm down. There's a baby in this room and your wife has just finished having labour."
At that, Larry slumped in one of the nearby chairs and placed his head in his hands.

"S-sure," the doctor said quickly turning on her heels and closing the door quietly behind her. Almost immediately, a sigh escaped Larry's lips.
"I'm sorry for shouting Thea...its just-"
He looked up, displaying the eye bags under his eyes and the wrinkles forming on his face. His face complexion had softened and Thea suddenly realised how worn out he looked.
"I-it's ok honey. We've got each other.."
At that, a faint smile formed on his lips as the two stared into each others eyes.
They would go through this together.
Although their daughter may not live for long, they would cherish the time they had with her for as long as they could...

FiU: Zum Dahinschmelzen. Tolle Geschichte. Hoffe auf Band 2 über die besten Freunde.Bitte mehr Zeit für die Rechtschreibung aufwenden.

Erika: Yooo where’s the second part?!

nizaly: Muy bonita historia y divertida.gracias

Annie Kay: The dirt bag behavior with Marcus and erica was annoying and this story was amazing. The relationship development wasn't over time but more over rushed at the end and erica should have lost her relationship with Marcus when he started to be kind to his wife. It was a good story.

2jlynn: Cannot imagine all that went on in Annalisa had going on in her life the past 2 years... then to top it off with her dad stepping in taking care of everything her an Eagle would need yet expecting nothing in return. Yes, it's a book, but nothing can stop the dreaming.

2jlynn: How can people do such horrible things... especially to the innocent? My heart hurts thinking of what is reality for some individuals. My life may not be "storybook", but comparatively speaking, there is nothing to complain about.
