Day 23

Skye has been falling for a long time, but she's fed up of it. She knows it's going to be hard, but she's determined to pull her life back from the brink.
But when Chris gets involved, well, things start going differently to how she planned.
"Why aren't you fighting back goddammit?"
"Because you, Skye Monroe, know nothing about me, about why."


1. Prologue

I decided a long time ago that life wasn’t worth living. I honestly don’t know how I’ve made it this far. But make it this far I have. Whether or not that is a good thing remains to be seen. It’s not like I suffered some trauma or loss that made me decide that there was no point to being alive, no. I like to think I just grew up, saw the world for how it really is, saw life in the big picture, because, and I’d really like someone to give me a decent answer to this, what really is the point of living? We make it through day after day of school or work or just sitting around, and all for what? What is at the end of it all? At the risk of sounding selfish, what’s in it for us? We drag ourselves through our miserable lives, from one catastrophe to the next and not many wonder why. We all just take it for granted that this is what we do. We suffer through life, and then we die, and we will look back on our lives and be pleased with what we see. Well, I don’t want to do that. I won’t be pleased with what I see, and I’m not taking it for granted that we need to be alive. What we need to do is die, only some get there quicker than others, in less pain. I want to get there quickly, rather than have the painful dreary life in the way. I just want everything to stop. I want all the noise, the movement, the effort, the pain to stop. But even more than I want to die, I want to be normal.

That’s why I’m giving life a chance. Starting today. Today is the beginning of the new me… hopefully.
