Chapter One

Another bullshit day. Got back from church and got bitched at by him again. I don't even know why he makes me go. Fuck him.

This dumb fuck makes me want to kill myself and he doesn't even realize it. I reach over to my bedside table and grab my pill bottle. May as well have a little nap. I take out a pill and grab my water bottle. The pill goes down like butter and it feels awesome. I love abusing my medication. I mean, I see no reason not to.

I toss the bottle across the room before reaching into my bedside drawer and getting my pencil sharpener. The excitement makes me shake as I wait for the sweet relief of my blade. I drop the sharpener trying to get it open. Fuck man I can't do anything right, can I?

I pick it up and finally manage to get it open. I shake the blade into my hand and just look at it for a minute. This little piece of metal is my best friend; no no, my only friend. I have nobody in this world, but that's alright. All I need is this blade. I pick it up and hold it against my wrist. I take a deep breath before slicing through my skin once. It doesn't bleed at first, it never does. All is see is white flesh before the red seeps out through the sides. I just sit there and stare at it.

After a few long minutes, the blood has left a crimson trail down my arm and hand. Fuck, I don't have the motivation to clean this shit. The pill has started to take it's toll on my body and I lay down in bed. The last thing I feel is the air against my open wound before i close my eyes.

indianspirit: Really a great book can't wait for the ending too bad is short I like like 39 chapters like that but anyway is still a really good look thank you for your time and effort Arthur

booksndogs: First and foremost, great characters. It does make you feel like they are all family. The plot itself is heartwarming with a wonderful ending.

B.Noble: Awesome concept and commentary on modern commercialism and it’s dark side, really well executed. The main character’s dialogue feels a little stilted a times, and his reactions occasionally seem a little melodramatic, but other than that a great read.

denielle: This is a great story. Written well with a good plot and character development. A must read

Liudmila: Nice short love story with, not your usual love/erotica context. Author shows characters, which are suffering with the mental health issues. And it does not matter, how much publicity mental health gets, it is still pretty much a taboo. So, thank you for writing about it 💙Your work is amazing, ...

Khushi: Nice book.Characters have a new twist.A bit of a cliché.But will go. 🎉🎉
