I silently walked into our- well my apartment, wiping the dried tears off my face.
The apartment felt empty.
Now that Grace was gone, there didn’t seem to be a purpose in living here.
Grace Willis. Grace Willis was my girlfriend. My dead girlfriend whom committed suicide at the age of 19.
A silent cry escaped my lips, at the sudden thought of her name.
I missed the way she sat at our sofa, with her legs folded, sobbing at those silly tragic love stories that she loved to read. Or when she laughed, that amazing laugh of hers, how she would crinkle her nose. Which was the most amusing sight ever seen.
Oh and her love. How she always seemed to love and accept people for who they were unconditionally. Including me. I was different. I wasn’t the ideal perfect boyfriend one would pick.
I suddenly grew angry. Angry at the fact that she was unhappy, and I didn’t notice. Angry because in some way, I could have helped. Angry, because I could have been that small possibility on why she wouldn’t be dead right now.
Red was all I saw as I smashed my fists into the wooden door. A loud groan escaped my dried lips as I fell to the ground.
I suddenly broke down crying, curling myself into a tight secure ball. I cried for all the times we fought. I cried for all the times I embarrassed her. I also cried for the all those times I took highly advantage of her.
It hurt. Hell, it hurt more than anything I could imagine.
It got to the point where it wasn’t just mentally; but now physically. My heart ached for the brown headed girl who I was madly in love with.
It was a losing battle. And I didn’t know if I should surrender or not.

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read.

borkarprasad: Story was overall a good experience. I liked that the truth unraveled slowly and kept me in edge every time I changed the chapter. I would love to read more volumes to this legacy and be glad to read it from a published book. Great work!!!!!!!!!
ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...
CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...
