She understood Alex very well but she couldn’t do anything against her father as he was dominant natured man.

After completing the High School, Alex wanted to go in Medical line, her dream was to become a Dentist .One night, after finishing dinner with her family, Alex decided to talk to her father about her further studies.

I’ll not permit you to become a dentist, you just complete your graduation from nearby college in the same town”. “I can’t send you out for studies”.

 After hearing this she tried to convince her father in every possible way but he was against it. After hearing this she ran crying her room. Her mother to tried but the answer was ‘No’…. After her vacation she got admission in nearby college in the in the same town. The first day she went to the college and slowly, slowly the day passed by. She tried to forget everything but it was little difficult for her to forget. One day after leaving the college, one of her classmate, Michel came to Alex and talk a little.

Then while talking till they reached home they became friend. Slowly days passed and Michel came to know everything about Alex and they became close friends. Due to friendly and funny behavior of Michel, Alex slowly forgot her sorrows and her past.

One day Michel found a diary in Alex’s bag, which seems to be interesting so Michel took away without informing Alex. At home he read all the things which was written on it. Next day at college he told about the diary he found in her bag. Alex was shocked to listen it. She said “Michel! You should not have done this to me, have you read all?” Michel said “you are amazing, your imagination is really good, the stories you have written are Awesome! Why don’t you write a book. She quietly walked away without saying a single word, Michel to become quite by Alex behavior. The whole night passed in turning the pages of the diary at last she decided to write stories and to publish it world wide .She wanted to show her dad that how much she loves him and what she wanted from her dad, the love, care, affections and to understand her. And also that she can do anything not only boys can do. So she decided to open not only her dad’s eyes but the whole world……….

Next morning she went running to Michel smiled and said that she has made up her mind to write stories. This was the turning point in Alex’s life, they took the help of Prof. Jess in the same college. Michel told everything about Alex’s life and about her father. Then with the help of Prof. Jess her story got printing in magazines, uploaded on Internet, many people liked the story. This was the beginning. At home she didn’t tell anyone except her mom. Alex was very happy as her mother appreciated her after listening everything .

Slowly, slowly the day went on passing and she become little popular in her own college and other parts of the country. One day the principal called Alex from her classroom, she was little nervous for being called in the principal’s office. After reaching there, the principal made her sit and introduced her to a man. That man was an editor and a great writer. He read her stories and liked them very much. The principal introduced Alex to that editor and he wanted Alex to work with him. She was really excited to start working with that writer. After moving out from the office, she screamed and ran to the Michel very happily. She told everything to him and to her Professor.

She wrote many interesting and inspiring stories which touched hearts of people worldwide. She got many feedbacks on internet and through letters. That how the people have inspired and change their life, many days passed Alex found her health was not good. One night she became very sick but she slept waiting for the morning. In the morning she went to the doctor and discovered that she was having “cancer” and there was no guarantee of her life. She was lost after hearing her illness. By keeping it as a secret she didn’t even her mother about her illness.

One day her father came to know about Alex, that she has become a famous writer, so he asked to Alex’s mother about it, and her mother explained everything and also told about Alex’s behavior and also that she remained sick and tensed now a days. After few days Alex got a big interview and her family was invited in a big International programme in which very famous writers too were invited from all over the world. After reaching there, her father got many appreciation and respect from other just because of Alex. Her father became very proud and realized after looking at Alex on stage receiving the ‘Best story writing award’ while returning at home Alex started coughing a lot and a blood came out from her mouth. Her parents were scared they rushed up to the hospital, she was admitted in the ICU. Her parents came to know about the illness she had. They were totally lost, that was the silent moment with lots of pain inside. One week passed but there was no improvement in Alex’s health. At home her father went in to Alex’s room he sat on the chair near the table and found a book titled “Need a little Love” written by Alex. He started reading……. This was the story about a girl who wanted her father to love her, understand her and support her. That story had open the eyes of her father. He weeped and realise that he did wrong with her daughter. He didn’t understand her.

The next morning he rushed up to the hospital to apologize her daughter and to make her know that he was wrong and didn’t pay attention to her and that he has realized his mistake. But it was too late as he steped in the yard he found her daughter Alex’s head on the laps of her mom. As he came near, her mother said, “she is no more”, she is dead. Tears roll down from her father’s eyes and he felt his voice chocked up and he couldn’t speak.

Before dying Alex wrote a letter to her mother to give it to Michel. The whole college came to know about Alex’s death, all teachers, Prof. Jess, Michel too came to know about it. They all prayed for her. Her mother gave the letter to Michel, and told before dying. She wrote this letter for you and she went away. When Michel open that letter it was written…..

There is a lot of simplicity and candor in this narrative. It is a Cinderella like story with a bit of a dramatic ending. As for the instant success, a pity that in real life, it won't happen this way. Still, one do catch the point in the story. Which for most authors is the most important part of their writing.

Its so sad... yet so true. It happens all across the world. This is one of the best 'sad ending' stories I have read in quite a while. And I actually like it. I don't normally like sad stories.
Well doe I wish I could harness emotions as well as you.

Enjoyed the story and the topic discussed. Everything does happen for a reason. She didn't become a dentist, but she did something better. She aspired to inspire. Just noticed a few mistakes. In the 2nd paragraph, a few sentences have been repeated. Noticed a change of tense in one line. Just proof read it and you'll find them. Also try to add more feelings than just facts. Instead of briefing every event, describe it in detail. Otherwise, it's an intelligent story with a wide approach. I love how you highlighted that she made her father prouder than her brother. Also, you did an excellent job describing how a friend helped her move on. Loved it. Xoxo
