Jason

As she slept in my lap, I leaned down and whispered ‘I swear I will love you forever.’ Even though as the time I was young and didn’t really understand what love was but somehow……somehow I knew that Hayley was the one for me.

But then she left, she moved to a far off country and my last image of her was her tear stained face and her waving good bye to me. Everyday, I wished I could see her, just one more, to tell her, that I loved her and I still do. My heart is still hers and it will be forever.

Hayley

I looked at the envelope, it looked rather familiar but I didn’t know where from. I opened it and pulled out the letter. I almost got a paper cut, typical me. I scanned through the letter and was overjoyed. It was an invitation to a prep school reunion. It was on the 12th of February, I quickly checked my calendar, No, I didn’t have anything planned for that weekend. I was excited about seeing my old home town and seeing some old friends and then, I thought of Jason… Jason, the sweet boy who I used to hang out with all the time, I wondered what he was doing. His dream had been to be a doctor; he wanted to help people and me. But that was the past and it was all over for now.

Jason

I stood there clutching the letter in my hands, it was an invitation. But to me, it was beacon of hope, I could finally see her. Hayley. I smiled and quickly rushed through my apartment, I had to book the tickets, sort out clothes, if I was going to see her I was going look my best. I thought of this chance as a gift from fate so I was not going to waste it.

Hayley

My bags were packed and I was in car. I checked in my bag once again, yes, my medicine and my phone were there. I touched my wrist consciously I was still wearing my hospital bracelet, I wore it there to remind myself of that time, to make sure that I did not forget.

Jason

I stood at the boarding gate, I was anxious. I tugged my jacket slightly, it had gotten a crease in it and I didn’t want that. The lady at the counter smiled

‘Welcome aboard, sir. May I take your coat?’

‘Thank you.’ I sat down in the comfortable seat and dreamed that I was already there, I wanted to see her, Desperately, I clutched my bag, in it was my research. I wanted to show her; maybe, just maybe it may be able to help her.

Hayley

I breathed in. The air was so fresh; it was so different from the city air I was used to. I looked around and saw the airport that I had not since I left. The shops had looked so foreign and the people so scary. But now, I was used to it, I shopped at these shops regularly. My watch beeped, I quickly sat down and took my pill box out. It was a cute little red one that my mother had bought me. I took the 12:00 pill out and popped in my mouth then I took a swig of water. I would soon be feeling the effects of the pill so it was lucky that my hotel wasn’t that far away. I stood up and looked around, I couldn’t see my name anywhere and then I saw it. Hayley Parks. I walked towards the chauffeur who said

‘Morning, Miss Parks, shall I take your luggage?’ ‘Thank you, it’s been ages since I’ve been here.’

Jason

When I arrived I walked straight out, I was going to catch a taxi to go to my hotel. I never hire cars because there is such a hassle to order and I am so used to going around on trips from place to place.

I looked through the window; it was a pleasure to be back at home. Well, not exactly home but I still thought of it home. I loved this place and I wanted to come back here sometime.

Hayley

I woke up with the sunlight streaming on my face. It’s a nice change; normally I wake up to my shrill alarm clock and then make a rushed exit. But today, I stretch out and look at the clock; I still have a few hours until I have to start to get ready. The reunion was going to start at six o’clock so I had plenty of time. I got up and went to have a shower. I love the feel of hot water streaming down my back it’s so comfortable. I am standing there, just letting the water flow over me, when I suddenly feel a sudden pain. I remember the time; I haven’t taken my pills yet. I stumble out of shower, I try to grab a towel but I can’t. I see my bag, it’s right there, next to my bed. The pain hits me in waves, I crashed down the floor. But I am finally in reach of my bag, I pull out my pill box and open it. My fingers are almost numb, but I manage to get them out. And then I take them. I dry swallow and then I lie there. I wait for the pain to go away. I just lay remembering the last time this happened, it was with Jason.

Jason

I felt a slight tugging in heart as if something hurt me. It hasn’t happened to me for a long time, not from the time she left. I hope that nothing has happened to her. It’s painful to even consider it.

Hayley

I wait for a few minutes, then I can feel the medication taking over my system. It’s relaxing me. I slowly stand up and then I sit on the bed. I am still dripping wet so I use the bedside table as support and push myself up. I totter to the bathroom where I pick up my towel and start to dry myself. I can barely feel anything, just that nagging pain that has been pushed back to the edge of my consciousness. I look at the clock. I’ shocked, I must have been on the floor for more than a few minutes, I quickly take note of the time and see that my next pill is right at six o’clock so I’ll take it right before I go into the reunion. I sit in front of the dresser, there is a big mirror there and I start with my make up. I have to make myself look reasonably healthy and not too run down, otherwise I will get all those sympathetic yet pitiful looks from the people who have known all along that I had this disease. That I would die, soon, very soon.

Jason

I adjusted my tie, and looked at my hair again. It looked good; if Hayley is there I want to make sure she is impressed with me. I am no longer a teenager, I am strong successful doctor. I check my watch again; I have half an hour to get there. Plenty of time in this small town, once again I find my mind drifting to Hayley. Has she changed? Is she okay? Will she recognize me?

Hayley

I sit in the car looking out of the window, I see some familiar sights. The park I used to go to with Jason. The bus stop I would wait at, with Jason. The shop I would go to for snacks, with Jason. Then I saw the pharmacy, I hated going there. The lady would always look at me with pity in her eyes. That’s why I like the city, no one knows me the way people here know me.
