The very thing I crave. The thing I need more than my next breath.
I can’t live without it. But I have to.
It tore my parents apart. And now, it’s tearing me apart.
I’m wrecked with guilt over losing my best friend. My other half. I blame myself. I know I’m not the one who stole his last breath. No, it wasn’t me, but it could have been.
Drowning. That’s all I’ve been doing since he left me. Drowning in my addiction. In my pain.
I’m turning it all around. I’m leaving the drugs and alcohol behind me. All with the help of him. Ryan. My saving grace. The one who can put me back together. But, will I only bring him down, or will he save me?
My name is Avery Bennett, and I am an addict. I’m in love with a ghost, but my heart is being stolen by someone I never saw coming.
