3. The End

 

Jake

It was the doctor that called me first, but somehow before she even I knew it was about Shelly, it all suddenly made sense. And I had to get to her, see her for the last time, touch her for the last time, hear her voice. I was there with her the day she went in, but she wouldn’t let me come with her. She disappeared a lot and wouldn’t tell me where she had gone. And then she had told me it was over, that wasn’t like her to become so out of the blue, so, so irrational. She was so kind, so warm-hearted, wouldn’t hurt a fly, and yet had hurt me so much, with words.

I didn’t have enough time to drive, only to run, I barely got my shoes on, and as the rain fell on my face, I didn’t care about anything, anything at all, apart from her. She was all I could think about, the doctor’s words spinning in my head, that ‘D’ word no one wants to hear, now screeching in my ear. I had to get to her, to see her for her last few minutes. She was dying and I had to save her at the final hour.
When I arrived at the hospital I had no patience for the receptionist, and, as I struggled to hold back the tears, I cried out her name. Hearing the room number I ran up the stairs, ignoring the lift and running as fast as I could to her. I could almost hear her heart beating as I climbed closer to her. Then there she was, lying in her bed, pale and thin. She didn’t even look up when I walked in. I sat by her side and enveloped her hand in mine. It was mine now, my own possession. I stayed with her that night, through the storm, and watched as her life faded from her, as the heart monitor slowed and her life drained from her. All I could do was sit, and watch it all happen. The doctor’s in the room sat, like hawks watching, waiting. And then it happened, The reassuring beep of the heart monitor came to an end, shrieking through my mind, a sound I would be haunted by forever. It taunted me, reminded me that it was the end. I was forced out of the way, cast aside as though I meant nothing.
