There was a time in my life I used to think I had to pursue what other wanted me to pursue. I didn’t think men could be so kind and empathetic, as well as I didn’t think it would be possible for me to realize that now was the time for me to chase my dreams not the dreams people wanted me to follow. I realized that life is short and that if I didn’t take risk and aim for the stars I’d miss out. I also didn’t think I could actually help someone to see that everyone is given second chances, until I met Hayes Ruiz, a sick 19 year old boy, who showed me that everything I had once believed was a lie. I was ready to take more risk. I was ready to experience them. Now this is a story of how two people were on the brink of losing hope found one another in the darkness and saved each other. Two young people who were stubborn enough to not give up on each other despite how cruel life was. My names Meadow Alvarez. I am 18 years old and live in Manhattan New York and this is my story. This is the story of me and Hayes and how we held onto life together. This is a story of how we saw the world through our eyes. But as always we have to start at the beginning. When both our world's took a turn for the best.
