1. 3 Weeks left to live

Rachel's P.O.V.

'How long did the doctor say?", asked Tom, the fear in his eyes as clear as that of a sheep about to get slaughtered. I looked at him with with sad eyes, knowing the answer I was about to give him he would not accept. " He said I only have about 3 weeks left" Suddenly his face changed from scared to enraged. " 3 weeks, 3 weeks, you've barely even lived your life yet. ", he boomed. " Yes I have, I've got spend it with with you, the love of my life." "Don't say that like you're about to leave me, he begged." Don't be sad for me, I'm going to be fine. " " You should be more worried about your mission."

Tom's P.O.V.

I mentally broke down inside. I was supposed to leave in a week, I could not leave her alone. I wanted to stay here with her, but I know she would not like that.I was going to make the best of the time I had left with her.

1 Week later

Rachel's P.O.V.

I'm going to miss him when I'm gone. I don't want him worrying about me while he's in Europe,  I need him to be alert so he can help the allies win the war.  I honestly had the best time of my life this week, and I owe it all to him.

Tom's P.O.V.

She 's going to make it. She's strong, she's so strong. She's gonna be here when I get back. I know she is.


Tom went off to fight and the allies won the war. He came out alive, thankfully, and got to return home. He called his brother, telling him to make sure Rachel was there when he hot off the bus. He knew she would be there when he got off the bus, smiling and waving. Little did Tom know, though, was that she would not be there. She had died a day after he left.He would never again see the face he loved so much, or here the laugh that always made him smile.When Tom stepped off his bus, he scanned the crowd for the faces of both his brother and love. When he saw the sad look on his brother's face,he knew she had died. When T om found out the truth, he was heartbroken. Unable to deal with the despair, Tom, that night, put a bullet through his head, so that he could join his one true love.
