I Will Always Love You

Ellie Crave is a seventeen year old girl. Her father ran away when her mum got pregnant and her mother died when she gave birth. She lived in an orphanage until she was fifteen. She didn’t have any friends and nobody would give her any attention because she had cancer and they thought it was worthless to take care of her as she would die before she even turned eighteen. But she was strong. She didn’t get mad at the others for not helping her. She didn’t get mad at the world for giving her this horrible disease. Instead she learned from it. When she got away from the orphanage, she went to a home that took care of sick children like her. She wouldn’t just help there, but she would be their friend. And she would give them something they never received. Or at least she didn’t allow herself to receive. Until she met a guy, who changed the rest of the life she had left forever. He gave her LOVE.

5. Reflection

 

“Must I pretend that I'm 
Someone else for all time? 
When will my reflection show 
Who I am inside?”

-Christina Aguilera

 

No one’s P.O.V

 

Days passed and Harry couldn’t stop thinking about Ellie, and when he finally did, she would appear right in front of her, bringing her image into his mind once again. He didn’t know about her condition; she always looked as if she was happy, as if death didn’t exist.  But death did exist, and she was surrounded by it. Everybody smiled around her and didn’t seem to notice how much she was actually hurting. Nobody seemed to notice how she would cry in the inside when another child passed. But Harry did. She saw how the sparkle in her eyes would be gone for a fraction of a second; she saw the frown behind the smile she put up; she saw the emotion behind her voice when she sang. At the beginning he thought he was crazy because it would be impossible to barely know her and know more about her than everyone. He didn’t know why but he saw right through her soul. 

 

Ellie tried to avoid Harry as much as she could, but he was everywhere. Every corner she turned he seemed to be there, and he always seemed to be laughing and smiling. “Why is he always so happy?” she asked herself, but of course, she knew the answer. He wasn’t going to die in less than four months. She didn’t show it, but she didn’t want to die. She was scared. She tried to distance from him as much as she could. There was something about Harry, something that didn’t quite fit. When she looked at him she felt as if crying and laughing all at the same time. It confused her but she just decided to ignore him. If she didn’t pay attention to him, then maybe these crazy feelings would go away. 

 

Harry’s P.O.V

 

“You should stop looking at her all the time Harry, she’s gonna freak out” Said Ruth laughing.  

“I just can’t get my eyes off of her” I replied still staring at her “I can’t do it Ruth”

“Do what?”

“Staying away from her, I just can’t”

“Harry-” She started saying but I cut her off.

“No Ruth, I like her too much. I have to ask her out”

“Don’t come weeping with me when she rejects you”

“IF she rejects me” I winked at her “And if she does, then I’ll try again until she says yes”

She sighted “Don’t tell me I didn’t warn you”

 

That night when I saw her leave I followed her. 

 

Ellie’s P.O.V

 

That night when I was walking home I was scared. I could sense something was wrong. I tried to shrug it off and just kept walking, but my nervousness didn’t go away. When I was about to open my apartment door I felt a hand on my shoulder. I jumped and turned around, and found myself looking at some dimples and green eyes.

“God you scared me” I said catching my breath.

“I’m sorry I didn’t mean to” Harry said grinning.

He smiled in a really sweet way and he had beautiful eyes too, but I had promised myself not to fall in love. I was about to die, I couldn’t fall in love, not now.

We just stood there in an awkward silence, me looking at him confused and he just smiling, until I decided to break the silence.

“Um, so…what brings you here?” I asked

“Oh right, I’m sorry, it’s just that you have the most beautiful eyes.” He replied and my cheeks turned a light shade of pink “Anyways, I wanted to know if you wanted to um…I was wondering if we could you know, maybe go out tomorrow, as it’s Saturday and we get out earlier, we could go to dinner.”

 

A part of me wanted to say yes. A part of me thought that it would be nice to just hang out with someone apart from the nurses. But this wasn’t just to hang out, he was actually asking me out, on a date, and I couldn’t allow myself to go on a date, not with him, not with anyone.

“Oh Harry, that’s really nice of you but-” I started saying “I don’t think that would be a good idea.

His smile didn’t fade, but I could see the disappointment in his eyes.

“Why not?” he asked.

I couldn’t tell him about the disease, he was going to think I was a freak and he wouldn’t come near me again if I did, but I couldn’t lie to him either, so I just said “I um, don’t go on dates”

“Oh…then don’t take it as a date. I mean, we could go just as friends if you’re more comfortable with that.” He said. Wow, he was stubborn.

“I can’t, I don’t have the money to pay for dinner” I replied nervously, hoping he would give up and go home because I was having a hard time rejecting him.

“It’s ok, I can pay” He said staring straight into my eyes as if preventing me from looking any other way but him.

“I-I um…I guess I can’t say no to that can I? Ok, I’ll go”

“Yay!” he yelled in excitement and I just laughed a little “So, I’ll pick you up at 8 then”

“Sure, bye” I said and got inside.

I slammed the door shut, leaned onto it and slide down and looked up. “What am I gonna do now?”
