Before I Die

This is my entry for the 'love' competition for Valentine's Day. Lexa suffers with terminal cancer. She knows she hasn't got long to live. She has no one to live for anyway. She is left spell-bound when she meets Luca, an excruciatingly handsome boy whose charm is irresistible. Will she let herself fall in love for the first, and last time?

1. Prologue

Have you ever thought of dying? Have you ever considered where and who with? Or do you plan on living forever? I'd like to see how that turns out for you.

The truth is, we all die at some point. Whether of old age, illness or murder, no one lives forever. But you avoid thinking about it. It's too personal, too private, too...emotional. Surely, one of you has thought of immortality...if it were possible, would you seize the opportunity? Could you live forever, and watch the lives of those you've loved, slowly fade away? Could you be so...so selfish?

Could you really survive morally and emotionally if you watched Death take its toll on those you love? And you ask me, why am I saying such things? What would I know? I haven't experienced a near-death-experience, so of course I don't know what it's like to finally meet Death. But...I will soon.

The truth is...I'm dying.
