A Colorless Blue

A Colorless Blue
by M.W. Muse
Genre: YA Romance

I have everything. Rich parents, popular friends, and a hot boyfriend, even if he is a selfish ass. I may not realize the irony my charmed life represents—that what is considered a conventional lifestyle for rich kids also makes me a cliché. A colorless caricature of the snobbiest stereotypes—but I don’t need to understand that to fit in. So yeah, besides dealing with my infuriating boyfriend and blending in with my snobby friends, my life is perfect … Until the day I can’t stop bleeding and that shell of a charmed life shatters in the wake of my new reality.

When I think about having everything now, I have to include leukemia. Because I have it, and it's killing me.

Wanting the best care for me, my parents send me to a treatment hospital, away from my friends, boyfriend, even my family. I so don’t want to go, but I have no choice. The sooner I get rid of this cancer, the sooner things can be normal again. There’s a word to explain my mentality of it all. Denial. It‘s such a beautiful thing until it all comes crashing down. And does it ever. But left standing in that debris is a boy who brings color into this dying girl. A boy who is there at my lowest and teaches me what it really means to live. A boy who urges me to fight a losing battle because my death would tear him apart.

A boy who is not my boyfriend.
And a death that will find me anyway.
