It was the worst day of my life, the day I lost my best friend Alice. We had been inseparable since freshman year, studying together, and exploring the city, until she was diagnosed with Leukemia. I couldn't accept it, I couldn't imagine my life without her. I was in shock, it felt like a nightmare.
Alice was more than just my study partner, she was my everything. I had fallen for her hard, but I had never mustered up the courage to tell her. I regretted not telling her how I felt, but it was too late now.
I watched helplessly as she fought the disease, her once vibrant self slowly fading away. I felt like a failure; I couldn't save her, and I couldn't fix her. All I could do was hold her hand and be there for her as she took her last breath.
As I stood by her side, I promised her that I would never let her death be in vain. I would dedicate my life to finding a cure and honouring her memory. That was the day I knew I had to become an engineer, not just to feed my curiosity and quench my thirst for knowledge, but to fulfill the promise I made to the love of my life.
I threw myself into my studies, determined to become the best engineer possible. I knew it wouldn't be easy, but I was driven by the memory of Alice, and the knowledge that I could make a difference in the world. I'll never forget her, and my love for her will always be a part of me, propelling me forward and pushing me to greatness.
Of course, it didn't start out like that.
P.S. I have decided to write out my first web story, and I'll try my best to continue with a chapter every week. Enjoy! :)
