We were having a sleepover to celebrate Jake and Scarlet finally being together.
Before (when Jake liked Scarlet but she didn't like him back) we couldn't watch anything with a romance in it because it made things awkward.
Now we could!
By eight-o-clock everyone was here.
We all snuggle up on the couch.
"I hear this movie is really good!" Scarlet said. "And there are some really hot guys!"
Jake glared at her. "Excuse me boyfriend sitting right here."
"Don't worry none of them are as good as you, that and their all alive so i've got no chance." Scarlet said smirking.
I started laughing.
"Damn shes hot!" Jake said pointing at the screen.
Scarlet whacked him. "Okay i get it, i will stop."
"They are so going to end up together." I said referring to the movie.
"I don't know, i have feeling she will end up with that guy from the mall." Scarlet said.
"I ran out of popcorn!" Jake yelled.
"But the movie just started." I said.
I got up and grabbed the bowl from him and walked over to the kitchen.
I put a bag in the microwave and waited.
When it was done i took it out and poured it into the bowl.
As i walked out of the kitchen i slipped on a puddle of water and blacked out.
I woke up in a white room, was i in the hospital?
Why was there a hospital in heaven?
"Gary shes awake!" I turned my head to see my mom and dad.
"Whats going on?" I croaked out.
"Honey you were in a terrible accident and you have been in a coma for a month." My dad said.
A coma? I thought i was dead!
I started crying years of joy, i was alive!
"I had a dream where i was dead!" I said hugging my parents.
"Its alright sweetheart." My mom said stroking my hair.
"How about you walk around a bit, your probably stiff from your long sleep." My dad suggested.
"That sounds like a good idea." I said getting up.
"We will be talking to the doctor if you need us." My mom said kissing my forehead.
"Alrighty." I said slowly moving towards the door.
I walked over to a little cafe that had a big window.
I took a window seat and stared out at the gorgeous day.
"Nice day isn't it and we're stuck in here."
I looked over not realizing that someone was beside me.
He had short brown hair and dazzling blue eyes. He was quite skinny.
"Its beautiful out." I said turning back to the window.
"What are you on here for?" He asked.
"I was in an accident, how about you?" I said.
"Lung cancer." He said.
That triggered something in my brain forcing me to do a double take.
Instead of looking at his features i took in his entire appearance.
My eyes went wide.
"Collin?" I whispered.
"How do you know my name?" He asked.
"You were in my dream." I said.
Then it hit me.
Everything that happened was a dream.
No Jake, no Scarlet, no Collin.
It was only a dream.
"Thats so strange." He said.
"Yeah, we were in heaven, you died of cancer."
"How did you know my name and that i had cancer through a dream, it doesn't make sense." He wondered aloud. "What else do you know?"
"Um you have three sisters, your an awesome cook, you were verbally abused by your grandfather, you pulled the plug on your machine that was keeping you alive." I said pointing to the little machine next to him.
"Thats all true except the last one of i wouldn't be here right now. Thats kind of creepy."
"How is it possible that i know you, if i technically never met you?" I asked. "Do you remember me at all?"
He shook his head. "It must be a coincidence."
My eyes started to tear. "I really got to know you, we were even..." I stopped myself knowing it was no use.
"What?" He asked.
"We were dating." I said quietly letting a tear slide down my cheek. "You have yo remember me."
"I'm sorry but i don't." He said a little creeped out.
"So i pulled the plug huh?"
"There is no point in making my parents do it." He whispered.
"Don't do it!" I said.
"Its going to happen sooner or later. Might as well be now." He said reaching for the plug.
"It was nice to meet you...i never got your name."
"Emily, please don't do this, i can't watch you die."
"Then look away." He pulled the plug and leaned back in his seat closing his eyes.
His last words were...
"No Collin, please." I yelled my eyes blurring with tears. I closed them and put my head in my hands.
My life truly was one big tragedy.
"Emily its okay." I could still hear his beautiful voice and imagine him holding my face.
I opened my eyes.
Its was Collin.
"Baby are you alright, you slipped?" He asked.
"It was only a dream!" I said holding him tight.
"I had a dream that i was in a coma this whole time and i saw you on the hospital but you didn't know me and i watched you pull the plug." I said sobbing into his shoulder.
"Its alright, I'm here." He said rubbing my back.
I cupped his face in my hands and stared into his eyes. "I don't know what i would do without you." I said smiling.
"Me either, your my everything." He said gently kissing me.
I guess my life, make that my afterlife, wasn't so bad after all.
