He kneeled down in front of me with a worried expression.
"Home sick?" He asked and i nodded my head.
"Lets get you off the floor." He said as he helped me up and lead me towards my couch. I took a seat and he sat down beside me.
"I think the first night is always the hardest." He said looking at me.
"As soon as i walked into my house i remembered why i was here and then i though i should check up on you." He said.
"That was nice of you, i don't know what i would have done if you didn't call." I said.
"Do you want tea or something?" He asked as he started to stand.
"No." I said grabbing his arm, "i just want to talk."
"About what?" He asked.
"Well i don't think we should distract ourselves anymore, since we can't do that forever...tell me about your family, well only if you want to." I said, turning my body to face him as he did the same.
"Well i have a mom and a dad-"
"Wow really i though you were an alien." I said cutting him off.
"Like i was saying, they were the good type of parents, they loved me, never fought, you know."
"I have three sisters, Chloe, shes thirteen, Adriana, shes twenty and Isabel, shes twenty two." He said.
I stared at him with my mouth open.
"Man i feel bad for you, THREE sisters, wow." I said and he was still laughing.
"They weren't that bad, just teased me alot, toward the end though, i missed the teasing they just pitied me."he said with a sad smile.
"What was you last day like?" I asked.
"Jakes really rubbing off on you." He said laughing then he got serious.
"Well i was in the hospital, i had been in and out for about a year, the night before i debated weather or not i would wake up the next day, like i always did-"
"Sorry to cut you off but thats the part that bothers me about knowing that your dying, me Kyle and Jake had no warning, but you knew, thats just whack." I said angry.
"Yeah...i was lucky though, i woke up the next day, my family was still asleep and i just knew, i knew that i had a little bit of time left before, you know, so i wrote them a note and then i ended up here." He said his eyes watery.
Streams of tears were running down my face.
"Why didn't you wake them and say goodbye if you knew?" I asked.
"I couldn't stand to see them upset in my final minutes, i got to see them peaceful and thats what i want to remember." He said wiping my tears with his sleeves.
"How is it that you just told me that sad story and didn't cry once, but i did and it wasn't even about me?" I asked.
"Well i have to be the strong guy." He said.
"No you don't i wouldn't judge you." I said, "what did the note say?"
He just looked at me.
"What you expect to tell me about it and me not be curious?" I asked.
"True...i wrote 'Dear mom, dad, Chloe, Adriana and Isabel a.k.a the best family in the world, i just wanted to let you know how grateful i am that i was blessed with such a loving and caring family, who stood by me through thick and thin. Try not to worry to much about me, I'm going to be in a better place. I'm looking around the room right now and you all look so peaceful, I'm glad that this is how I'm going to remember you all. I want to thank you all for having to put up with everything that happened in this past year, you all deserve a nice long vacation. I love you all to the moon and back and i will miss you guys so much. Forever in your hearts, i hope, Collin.'" By this point we both had tear stained faces.
I wrapped my arms around Collin and put my head on his shoulder.
"That was a beautiful note, and I'm sure they are going to cherish that forever." I said through the tears.
"Thanks." He said wiping away his tears. "Damn you broke me." He said laughing. "Tell me about your family."
"Well like you, i have a mom and a dad." He started laughing. "And i have a five year old sister named Juliana."
"I don't see you being a good big sister." He said trying to be serious.
I unwrapped my arms from him and moved back so i could look him in the eyes. "I suddenly don't feel bad for you anymore."
He started laughing. And i pretended to be insulted.
"I guess i should leave then." He said getting up.
"No don't go." I said before i could stop myself, i fell right into he's trap.
"Oh so your not mad at me." He said laughing.
I shook my head.
"Lets watch a movie, i don't want to go to sleep yet." I said.
"What if I'm tired and want to leave." He said.
"Then i will be lonely." I said pouting.
He smiled and sat back down. "Lets watch 'This is us'!" I said getting the movie and putting it in the dvd player.
"Isn't that the One Direction movie?" He asked making a face.
"Yup." I said giggling.
"Then i am definitely leaving." He said.
"Your not aloud to." I said wrapping my arms around his stomach and resting my head on his side. I looked up and he was smiling down at me.
"Well i guess i can't leave now since I'm not aloud to." He said putting his arm around me.
We fell asleep like this.
