I am strong because I am weak, I am beautiful because I know my flaws, I am a lover because I am a fighter, I am fearless because I have been afraid, I am wise because I am foolish, and I can laugh because I have known sadness.
I have been around for quite some time. I have lived, laughed and lost.
But throughout my life there has never been one thing I regretted.
My name is Dakota Slater. I was born in 1909 to Isaiah and Patricia Slater.
They say my parents were so happy when I was born. They thought they had a lovely healthy child, but how wrong they were...
In 1925 I stopped aging at the age of 16. Of course you’d say, how could you possibly know? At first no one realised this. But two years later my parents were concerned. The contours of my face never defined anymore, my height had stopped, and my hair no longer grew.
So by the time I had turned eighteen my parents took me to see the best doctor in town. The doctor had told my parents it was a growth disorder, which some people’s faces stay the same for a while, some people stop growing at this age, and some people’s hair growth really slows down. He also told my parents I’d live the normal life span of a woman, but I might appear young for a while.
But something deep down inside me knew he was wrong. I knew there was more to it. Yet I just didn’t know at that time.
And that is where my story takes place.
So to anyone reading this, i do have another account: amcka30
And my story Forever is up on there, but I'm not happy with it. Also, i don't want to delete it because it was my first story on there and it had the most reads and comments and votes so I just cant bear to do that.
So I'm rewriting it on this account (:
Also, I will put the sequel on this account as well to those who read Forever on my other account.
