I purchased an audiobook recently, The Fault In Our Stars by John Green.
I didn’t know anything about it, I really just wanted to hear a story because
I don’t have a library card yet, and the only decent bookstore is in Anchorage, audiobook it had to be.
Soon as I heard the word cancer I knew I shouldn’t be listening, I get way to ridiculously attached to fictional characters, to the point of where it’s embarrassing. But I was curious.
As soon as more characters were introduced I knew what was going to happen..I kept telling myself don’t do it! And even now am stalling by writing this because I don’t want to hear the end, I don’t want to be upset over fictional characters.
Once I was staying up late finishing a series I was completely addicted to, it was about 2 in the morning and my cousin was sleeping like a rock next to me.
Everything was fine and then all of the sudden the writer decided to destroy everything good. Death, sadness, more death, heartbroke.
I cried my eyes out(to give myself some credit I was going through a breakup, living in a place I hated, and it was really really late, all to emotional).
I ended up waking up my cousin wanting to explain what happened, looking for some kind of comfort.
She opens her eyes, sees my soaking wet face and says “WHAT THE FUCK?!!” flips over, goes back to sleep. I cried harder.
Oh and she of course claims that she doesn’t remember anything about it happening.
