Withdraw by dead5cout Withdraw by dead5cout
I saw this girl sitting on the sidewalk one day. She went to my school.
She used to be beautiful but she started to smoke.
Her parents found out and made her quit.
She used to have beautiful, silky blonde hair but it had faded and wasn't as well taken care of.
Her eyes seem to sink back into her skull where as they used to be a shiny hazel. She was looking at the street and i asked her if she was okay. She smiled and said "I didn't think anyone still cared... I think its withdraw..." I never forgot the look on her face when she looked away.



EDIT*
I just wanted to thank :iconkiwi-pdd: For submitting this<3 You're awesome :D
Also I don't know if people think this story is fake or not but its actually true... unfortunately :(
Just thanks and yea :P

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-11-09
Withdraw by ~dead5cout The stickers this deviant produces almost always astonish me with the level of detail in them. If I could I would choose a whole slew of deviations from his gallery to award with a DD today. Choosing a single one was very difficult. Please go look at the rest of their gallery.

Thank you :) I've already finished my work.. It is drawn in my own style and it's totally different than this great original made by yourself :) Your drawing is beautiful and mine is just terrible >.<
I will put it on dA if you don't mind :)

Wow this is amazing. The narrative is just as amazing as well and I believe the truth in it. To be able to express an emotion so perfectly that I caught it before even reading your story, is an amazing feat for you. Well done!! You have done the story justice.

This is beautiful.... it is so sad what destructive things exist in this world...... and in addition to that cigarettes aren't the only harmful, addictive drugs out there. So many people succumb to their wrath.... and some don't even realize when they are caught in the foul grip of danger. Thank you for sharing this story with deviantart. You portrayed this wonderfully. :) So many share this tragic tale sadly.... But we can all grow from our misfortune. Use it to bring each other closer together, to comfort and mature. May god have mercy on her soul and the souls of all others in deep trouble. (Also, did you draw this on a real postage box? Super creative~! :meow:)
