Drifting On Cloud Nine

Connor and Hailey are in this together through physical fights, pain, sickness;
although life is dangerous.Remember what was once yours.Never look back,just keep moving forward."God will get you there."


5. Beautiful Morning

I woke up with sweat on my face.

"Honey,the doctors said that you can come and see Connor."

"Okay,I'll be downstairs in a minute,"I said.

I turned on the shower,and got in.The cold water hit my face.

Really,she took all the hot water.

When I came out I got dressed.

I wore the same skirt from years ago.A black cardigan,and white tank top.

I glanced at myself in the mirror.

My oulfit looked decent,but better than what I had on yesterday.

I trotted downstairs;down the wodden steps.

My aunt was standing at the door.

We both climbed into the car.

I looked back at the tan house.

Something seemed different now.I was happy.

As we can through the hall a bunch of people were talking.

My eyes glanced at plate numbers and rooms.

Most of the people were sitting in beds,and watching TV.

They blocked everything out.Maybe even their hope.

The same look on my grandfather I saw in them.

I knew it wasn't good.

The sun was coming out though.

People rushed past me.

Lith waited for me to go inside Connor's room.

She checked us in.

Once she saw me standing in the door way,her face looked concerned.

 "I'll see you in a little bit,call me when you want to go home."

I nodded,and she walked out the door.

I wondered if she had to go to work.Lith had on a black buisness suit,with a white floppy blouse.One thing I noticed is that she had on the neckalace my mom gave her.It was a purple crystal,that I believed could tell the future when I was little.

Connor noticed that I came in.


"Hey Connor."

"Listen,the doctors said that I could walk outside for a bit.To get my excersize or whatever."

I laughed.

"You might want to step out for a bit,I have to get dressed."

I paused,until I realized what he said.


I was just so excited to see him.I wanted him to hold me in my arms again.

The doctor came,just in time.Her name tag said Kristy.She looked like a young thirty year old women.

I walked out of the room.

"Doc,I think I can manage on my own."

He shuffled out of bed,but sat back down.

"Maybe not."he laughed.

I was grinning from ear to ear.

Kristy closed the door.

A couple of minutes after I was pacing around Connor came out.

He had an IV attatched with blood inside.

My face slowly sunk.

"Don't worry,"he said with the Kristy holding him.

"I think I got it."

Kritsty slowly let go.

Connor put his arm around my shoulder.

We walked outside,and the fresh air moved into my lungs.

I stared at him until he looked back.

"What's that for?"

Connor looked at the IV.People donated blood for me,so I won't have too much iron.

"Oh,when did that take place?"

"Hailey,I know your just asking,but I don't want you to worry."

"I'm not,"I paused."I just want to know how your last few day's were."

"They were fine,"he stated sternly.

"How come you never told me about it?"I asked.

"To be honest,I was just as confused as you were.I didn't know what was happening to me."

Connor looked at me the same way Lith did.

"All I know is that I don't want to die in this place."

A few moments of silence popped up.

"Hailey,I don't want to sound selfish;don't you to?"

"I know what you're talking about.I get it,but I don't know where else to go."

"That's true.At least I still have hope."

Connor said that as if he'd read my mind.

"We should probaly get back."

"Yeah,I think that's best."

     The more we talked,the more I knew.Most of the time,the things Connor said were new to me.It made him seem as if he didn't want to talk about it.Afraid of dying,living life the way he wanted to.I noticed that we never hung out as much as we used to.I would've known the whole time about his disease.Even though people claimed he wasn't,I knew Connor was sick.Not just inside,but on the outside too.

That was probaly one of the things he was trying to protect me from.
