10 Reasons Not To Die
Publisher: Aaron Nace
"If you're broken, I'll fix you..."
My legs wobbled as I made my way closer to the edge of the cliff. I took in a deep breath of air, hands trembling by my sides as I stepped closer and closer to the end of the cliff. My heart hammered against my chest when I stared down at the rocky waters below me. If I jumped off that cliff right now, I would die from the impact, immediately. But wasn’t that what I’ve always wanted, to die quickly and without any pain?
"If you shatter, I'll find you..."
I just wanted my life to end. I wanted to get away from this hellhole I’ve been sucked into. I wanted to go live with my parents up in heaven, not in some orphanage where I was too old for anyone to want to adopt me. They all wanted to adopt an obedient little child, not some seventeen year old teen like me.
I moved my foot one step closer, feeling myself stop breathing. If I moved just an inch closer, I would be tumbling down that cliff. You can do this, Remy. It’s what you’ve been wanting for years now. I moved my left foot forward, letting it dangle in thin air. A tear escaped my eyes, sliding down my cheeks slowly.
Suddenly, I felt myself fly towards the side, as I squeezed my eyes together tightly. I prepared myself for the impact. Instead, I found myself crashing onto dirt. I opened my eyes, noticing that I was now thrown meters away from the edge of the cliff.
"Give me ten days, and I can give you ten reasons not to die." Evan paused. "And if I can't change your mind by then, you can go jump off that cliff."
”I absolutely adore this story! It kept me engaged and I honestly didn't want it to end, but I suppose all good things must. I love your writing style and the way your characters interact with one another. It's hopefully and a informative of a lot of subjects that hit close to home for some people. I loved every word, and I look forward to reading more of your stories!”- Janelle
”Amazing and highly unpredictable. The penmanship displayed is praise worthy and I would rate it a 9.5/10. Immaculate.”- Bella
“ I truly loved this story, it was heartfelt and sweet! Now, I don't know who the narrator of the story is, but I imagined it to be Remy's mother, and even if it's not, wouldn't that be cool?.”- enchantedorange

”Such a beautiful story that truly moved me. I was wondering if with your permission, I could write a song based off of this wonderful story... it would truly mean a lot if I had your blessing, the song would probably go no where but I wouldn’t want to steal your idea without asking.”- Meghan
