I don't know E, but I love her


She sounds so sweet, and like she had very loving parents who doted on their child regardless of any medical conditions.


Story brought a tear to my eye. Much love to E from us slaves!


The feels! THE FEEEEEEELS! Oh, man...right in the feels, all of them!

The Last Archimedean

Went back today to buy water. E's long-time girlfriend [I didn't even know she was in a romantic relationship] has convinced her to retire from the store at the end of January. That way they can spend the last few weeks of E's life together.

And I can't think of anyone who deserves a happy ending to their life more than E.

Book Baby

Oh maaaannn. Sniffle...

Mrs. Lovett

TLA, what a beautiful story. And thank you for the addition here in the comment section. It sounds like E enjoys her job if she's always genuinely smiling, but spending time with a loved one is always better than even the best job.

May we all accept death as graciously when our own times come.


Awww! Sounds like she's ready! Death is but the next great adventure.

The Last Archimedean

Mrs. Lovett, you're welcome. I thought it would be important for us RHUers to know the ending, as it were.

Nomnom, you're right. I hope I accept it half as graciously as E when my time comes, and feel it is just the next great adventure.

Bored at the Bookstore

Wow. Just... wow. I hope when my time comes, I can arrive at that mindset.


Oh man, this made me tear-y eyed and sniffly, I had to grab some tissues! E sounds like a lovely person, and I'm glad she's at peace with her future. May these weeks be full of friendship and wonderful last memories with her loved ones.


Yeah I teared up over this one, thank you for posting it TLA.
