This isn't your ordinary love story...
  Lara Rogers isn't supposed to be here. She was supposed to die over a year ago from a long-term illness, yet somehow she managed to make a miracle recovery. The only problem is now she has an endless future stretched out in front of her. One that she wasn't expecting, and one that she has no idea what to do with.
  After she got the positive diagnosis, she moved to the big city where she knows no one to become another anonymous face, but this life isn't making her happy. In fact, she's more miserable than ever.
  An unexpected night out with a girl that seems to want to be her friend leads to all sorts of new experiences, including one that might even be love...
  The only problem is Lara has spent so long not knowing who she is, that she doesn't know how to act around all of these new people, and slowly things become increasingly difficult for her. She begins a negative spiral into self-destructive behaviour, sinking deeper and deeper until she isn't sure that she can ever get out.

'where a couple were sat there smiling intently at each other. ' The 'were' should be removed and there should be a comma after 'sat there'.

This is brilliant!! Love your writing style, love the way you feel her pain, the way you connect us to her.

You can feel her anguish, sorrow, and pain. Then her hesitation, her anxiety, her emotions. Then her jubilation that someone "Amy" is still interested in her. Vivid writing, excellent descriptions of capturing her emotions

Love the bit about how she knew how to die, but not to live.

Hey I really enjoyed your story! You should post more! You are really good! If you wouldn't mind checking out and commenting or voting on Chapter 11 of my book Firefly it'd mean a lot ☺️☺️❤️❤️

This is so emotional and a true experience for so many- including myself. Never saw a story about it before.
