Unfortunately, it did not hit me, because I would have welcomed death rather than lose the people I loved. No, it was my mother who suffered and died under the cruel hands of that silent killer. Leukemia—that was the type of cancer that ripped her off her once young, energetic and healthy body. It was hereditary, like the small fortune my grandmother left us, the difference was; you can refuse to accept fortune, but there was no refusing the disease, just the inescapable battle with death. And we all knew who wins at the end. My grandmother died of the same illness.
Cancer. After a few years of my grandmother’s death, and after consulting medical experts, about the changes my mother felt within her body, the test results came positive for her and it was malignant. She tried different means to somehow slow down its process, but the monster illness was persistent. Her body finally gave up a year ago, and so now my sister and I were so-called orphans. My father already died when my sister was just eleven and I was two years old. It was a car accident that took his life; I could barely remember the details my mom and sister used to tell me when I asked about him.
Cancer. Ironically, was also my star sign (though I don’t have much belief about those things), having been born in the fourth of July. And so I was named Julianne Marie Sangre—Julie, is what I preferred. I wasn’t so fond of being called Julianne or Marie… I was a girl born and raised, until my early teens, in a small town, thousands of miles away to where I was fated to be.
And this was my story…
This is the summary of the story I am currently working on. Please feel free to read it, and let me know what you think. Criticism or Praise is appreciated. Thank you...

“Love is like drinking beer…
Once you have too much of it,
You begin to act stupid…”
A friend sent me this text message a few days beforehand. Well, I guess it’s somehow true. They say, too much of everything won’t do you any good and that everything needs to be in moderate. But, does this also apply to Love? I mean, wouldn’t it be great to give everything for the sake of Love? Jesus was crucified because he loves us. Romeo killed himself because he thought his one love, Juliet, is dead. And didn’t Edward try to expose himself to the human world in exchange that the Volturi would murder him on the spot, because he thought Bella jumped off the cliff and died? Are these acts considered stupid?
If you were to look at yourself in the mirror and asked; “What wouldn’t you give to finally feel a love you know that is worth dying for?” If you have someone you love right now, what are the things you already did for that person, and what are the other things you would be willing to do or willing to sacrifice again and again just so you won’t lose that person? I know this post has got more questions than answers, but if you search your soul and look deep in your heart, I’d say that if love is like drinking beer, well, I’d choose to be drunk all my life… just a thought… J
