11. Promise

Me and Charlie sit outside in the hospitals garden, under a shaded canopy with the flowers surrounding us. Charlie does most of talking but thats the way I like it and she knows that. Her stories are so interesting and they take my mind off a the sadness that fills me inside. Sometimes I forget about the boys death completely but I comes rushing back just as fast and I feel like I want to throw up. 

So there me and Charlie sit, her hand in mine. Charlie talks and I listen to her intently. She is telling me a story about her cat at home in Essex. We have become firm friends over past week and have I talk to her everyday because she makes me feel so much better. A man she's so dam beautiful. 

"Charlie"? I ask quietly 

"Yeah Harry"? she smiles and I really do smile back, It comes out like more of a wince but she knows I'm smiling,

" you never told me why your in the hospital" I ask.  She looks down at our intertwined hands and sighs

"I have Leukemia" she whispers then looks at me smiling "but we are both going to get through this together Harry, we are both going to get better okay"?  she gives my hand a squeeze and I squeeze back. 

"but..." I begin to say, she isn't having it. 

"I am going to get better Harry, okay"? 



"Can I ask you something Harry"? She says 


"Why are you so sad"? she timidly whispers. My breath catches in my lungs and all the feelings seem to bubble up inside of me, I can feel the tears coming, I swallow hard and try to speak. 

"My four best friends.. they died" I try to say more but I can't, tears fall slowly from my eyes. Charlie wipes them away with her thumb and gazes at my face sadly. Then I do something totally unexpected, I lifted her chin up higher to me and pushed my lips to hers softly, my tears fall onto her cheeks and she wraps her arms around my neck gently, pulling me closer. I kiss a little bit harder, more confidently. She smile against my mouth and I smile back, sobbing a bit. She begins to kiss a little harder and I feel something flowing through me, it felt like electricity. 

I pull away gingerly and stare into her beautiful eyes. I hadn't felt this happy in a long, long time. 

"Im sorry" Charlie whispers to me 

"me too"
