*SEQUEL TO ADOPTED BY LIN, PLEASE READ THAT FIRST* "I can't lose you again, Laura...I just can't," He grabbed her wrists, looking down at them sadly, a tear escaping his eye. "I don't...I don't think I'll be okay if I lose you...please don't ever disappear again." - Laura Miranda just went through a near-death experience, and her family can't lose her again. Unsure of how long it will take to feel better, she resigns herself to years of recovery--only she didn't expect to fall in love. - TRIGGER WARNING. DO NOT READ IF YOU SELF-HARM OR IF YOU ARE UNCOMFORTABLE WITH THIS TOPIC. I DO NOT ENCOURAGE THIS IN ANY WAY. I DO NOT OWN ANYONE USED IN THIS STORY EXCEPT FOR LAURA. THE PLOT IS MINE.
