"Where's Mummy?" My tiny self asks, bright blue eyes look up to Daddy. Flashbacks come flooding back into my mind. "Mummy's gone to a far away place, darling, you'll see her again one day" He says, kissing my forehead. I smile up at him, showing my teeth and giggling. "Is Mummy happy?" I never really understood where my Mother had gone and why so sudden, It was all just a blur but as time went on I had finally realized. "Mummy is very proud of you, darling, she loves you very much!" And before I knew it, my Father had picked me up in his strong arms and was then holding on to me tight. "She's always here with you, right here" He continued, poking my chest where my heart was. I smiled and placed both of my small, soft hands on my tiny heart, feeling it's beat.

My Father's been in the hospital for around a month now with no improvement. I look around the empty waiting room, just quiet and gloomy. I feel like I've been waiting for most of my life. I've had enough of the waiting, not knowing if he's actually getting better or not. I take my stand and walk through the doors, towards the counter. "I'm going to see my Father!" I announce before walking off along the ward.

"Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would of stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life"

Doors swung back behind me, I walked into my Father's room. He lay on the bed like a lifeless wreck, his eyes drifting up and down. "Darling? Is that you?" His voice begins to rise, I watch as he struggles to move, slowly walking towards his side. "I'm going to give you one last choice, you're not going to leave without a goodbye like Mummy did" A tear rolls down my pale, freckled cheeks. "You either lay in this bed and die here, meaning you would of spent the last few months of your life in this room or... we go to the beach where you and Mummy used to take me. It's a big risk, I just want to have one more special day with you"
