The next thing she knows her car is nose to nose with another. Totaled cars, trips to the hospital, and both barely injured, Harry and Lauren both come out alive.
It all feels like a dream, but what happens when they wake up?

11. The Note

I stirred slightly, making the girl holding my hand gasp.  I was trying to pull myself out of the mix of dark and light the seemed to be pulling me in and out of the world I was in. Life had been going on without me, but I’m not sure how long it has been.  It could have been years for all I know, I could be an old man by now, just waking up from decades of an unwanted slumber and worry by the person I love, Lauren. 

The second that word hit my brain I seemed to stop what I was doing and all attempts to get out of this hole of nothing that was holding me back.  I wasn’t falling back like I had been before, I just was stuck. I hadn’t even realized my feelings for Lauren until that thought hit my brain.  It all seemed like a foreign concept to me.  Love.  Lauren. The boys. My family. These words all seemed to fit together and I sank down a little in the pit of nothingness.  I didn’t understand what was happening.  I wanted to see them. Why was I getting further away from everything I loved?  I felt like I was being pulled between two sides, but I wasn’t sure what was going on.

Strange commotions started coming from all around me but I was too confused and dazed to focus on just one.  My brain was switching from one to another every few seconds, even before I could even process them. 

Another pull, but this time the pit pulled me forward.  I felt like I was going on a rollercoaster, but this one didn’t have a specific path.  I wasn’t sure whether I was closer to light or darkness at the moment, but I heard the familiar noises of the hospital room.  She wasn’t here. I couldn’t feel her petite hand holding mine, or even hear her small sobs and whimpers.  That was all the strength I needed to come out of the dark and open my eyes. 

I looked around the small room looking for the small brunette that was nowhere in sight.

“Lo?” I croaked, not finding my voice. I sat up slightly and saw a note on the chair where I suspected she had been sitting. I unfolded it and looked at the piece of paper that was lying in front of me.

Harry,

I guess if you are reading this you woke up. I can’t handle it right now. I care way too much to get hurt again, so I figured I would take this time to explain myself.

I am not exactly who you think I am. I am holding you back from all that you could have in life.  You need to live life, not be stuck with someone who isn’t letting you live your life completely.  You probably are wondering what I mean, but you will realize it all soon.  I can’t handle being around you right now, since all of this is my fault.  I am causing everyone more pain then you could ever imagine.  I can’t keep hurting the people I love, Haz. I can barely stand to write this to you because I know it will tear you up inside, since writing it is almost impossible for me.

This isn’t easy for me at all, but I know I can’t hurt you anymore.  I think that we should.

Lately I have been feeling guilty for not telling you what is going on, but I though you would hate me for taking you away from the people you love.

Sorry I had to do it this way. I just thought it would be easier on paper then in person, because knowing me I would have lost it around ‘Harry.’

I don’t want you to hate me forever, and maybe later in life we can meet up and be friends, but right now it’s all just too much for me.

I’ll love you forever & always.
