Moments of Grace

By KRSchneider All Rights Reserved ©

Drama / Romance

Prologue

I sort of feel like I should start with one of the only absolute truths that I know. And that is that I, Grace Charlotte Harrison, am dying. And I don't mean dying in the figurative, “we're all dying” sense of the term. I am very literally not going to make it to twenty-two. Unless, by some weird twist of something you keep getting older in the afterlife, though I'm pretty sure it doesn't work that way. But, pending my inevitable kick of the proverbial bucket, I'll let you know.

I'm trying to be done with all the sad. Being sad only leads to being angry. And trust me when I tell you that I've been both. I'd like to be done with those emotions. I realize it's futile for me to ask my parents and my sisters and anyone else that happens to love me not to cry about it, because it's hella unfair.

People say that it's worse to be the person left behind than the one doing the leaving. That might be true, but I can tell you from personal experience that being the one that has to do the leaving sucks pretty hard too. Making everybody that loves you a bawling mess is not something anyone wants. And sure, I can't exactly help it, but they're still crying over me. So...point being, it'd be nice if you didn't.

I'm going to tell you my story. But it's not the one that you think it's going to be, where I talk about how this leukemia came out of nowhere and blindsided my entire life, though it did. But in the time that I have left (which is such a soap opera-y thing to say and I apologize) I want to tell you about something that's a little more selfish but still, pretty important and little more interesting...if I do say so myself.

So, I'm twenty-one years old. And like any other barely adult female...there's this boy.

Marimar Amieva: I just can't believe the story! I absolutely loved it, all of it. The characters and their chemistry between them, and the fact that they are relatable. The story also has some sick plot twists, which I never saw coming. I loved the fact that it is an adorable love story but has its mystery touc...

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...

Samantha Speed: There were several punctuation, grammar, and missing word problems but it did not detract from the story. This story was very well done, enjoyable, and had an interesting enough plot. It took a while to finish. This story is not complete. I love it, but I want to see another book or have more cha...

SandraHan1: This story is very descriptive, with vivid scenes from the very beginning, which made for a good scene setting. I love the symbolism in names, such as “Naysayers”, “Hadd”, etc . The story itself is revolutionary, intriguing, emotional and exciting. I was very pleased to see that there is a happy ...

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...
