Chapter 1

The summer of 2007, it was a hot one. Walking out the door was enough to make someone feel like they were melting. Fort Worth, Texas has been home for almost 20 years. But until that summer, I had never really gotten to explore the city. It's not a terrible place but it has its problems.

After spending years in a deep depression, and rarely leaving the home I shared with my divorced parents, I decided to go out and find something to get into. Not the best decision that I have ever made, that's for sure.

It had been 6 years since I moved back in with my Dad. My childhood friend from birth, who I was engaged to and set be married the next day, was killed in a fire. We had a fight the day before the wedding and he went to his parents home to mellow out. Unfortunately, he loved lighting tons of candles and had a clumsy dog that ended up knocking some of them over while he was asleep on the couch. So, he died of smoke inhalation before he was burned beyond recognition. The last thing we said to one another was, "fuck you".

So, it weighed heavily on me and after that incident, I kinda threw my life away. Heroin was ruining what little will to live that I had left. My parents ended up taking me to be put on methadone, so on methadone I stayed for the next 6 years of my life.

I went from this full of life, twenty four year old, in great shape young lady, to a full blown addict. I spent my days knodding out and making sure that I had no experience with reality. I stayed in this self induced chemical coma for so long a d gained so much weight because I never moved.

So, when I decided I had enough of being and doing nothing, I was now a thirty year old, overweight, self-conscious, terrified of the world, and now middle aged and had nothing going for me. I felt so inferior at this point,because of my weight that I wouldn't even make eye contact with anyone because I believed that I was not worthy.

Wasting that many years of my life in depression and addiction was not something I planned. The time flew by so fast that I didn't even notice how behind I was, from everyone I knew, it was just something that slapped me upside the head all of the sudden.

Heroin was not my only vice. I was not an addict who discriminated. I would do anything, and a shit ton of it. That's how I coped, at least that's what I thought I was doing by using the drugs. Coping...

Rosanne Moroneso: I really like this story and hope it continues. A fed grammatical errors but easily overlooked as I enjoyed reading it.

Raphaella: Au début j'étais un peu sceptique, mais au final je me suis rapidement laissé emporter par l'histoire. Le style d'écriture est plutôt pas mal, on arrive facilement à se projeter dans les lieux de la trame. Les personnages sont bien travaillés, on s'attache facilement à eux. Bref j'ai passé un bon...

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

Mariam Abdullah: Good and an interesting book

2jlynn: Love this series! The action, suspense, the chemistry of those in the MC makes this series flow. Am eager to read the next book, but know the sooner I complete a book the sooner the series ends. Not thrilled with this ending, but have no doubt this series will be read a couple times!

More Recommendations

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: 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.

Deloris McCoy: I’m so enjoying this book. I love the serious side of the characters along with the sorrows, like being in an average everyday life. Also showing the funny side of them. Makes for a good read and not boring.

Deloris McCoy: I like these type of stories. This is a good one. I will be reading the rest of them. Keep writing.

Chaira Leusden: Loved all the books so much. And I just want to keep reading more. Too bad it has to end somewhere
