Lexi is mad. Mad because her family was torn apart. Her loved ones scattered to the wind. But Lexi is also heartbroken. Heartbroken because she may never get the chance to be with the one she loves.
Aaron is disappointed. Disappointed because his life turned upside down. All the happy things were shaken from him and now the only thing he has left to hold on to is the knowledge that Lexi loves him.
Lexi is begging. Begging for Aaron to stay.
"But things don't always work out." He says. She knows this is true. She just doesn't want to believe.
"I love you." She says.
"I love you too."

*inspired by the song 'Forever and Always' by Parachute*


1. One

I set the plates down on the table and walk over to the cupboard; taking out two glasses. I set them on the table and check the time. Aaron was coming at 7 and I wanted to be ready. It was already 6:45 so he would be here soon. I make my way into my room to get ready. I put on a long white strapless dress and pull my long brown hair into a bun. In the bathroom I do my make up and make sure my hair looks alright.

When look into the mirror I see a girl about 5' 4" with long brown hair that falls in waves down her back. She has a soft face and perfect green eyes. If you met this girl on the street you would think she looks so sweet and innocent. But if you look deeper into her eyes you can see all the pain and regret that she has been keeping locked up inside.

A tear falls down my cheek. There is way too much pain. But pain helps create the person you are inside. So does fear and regret. Without those things we would have nothing.

I walk out of the bathroom and into the kitchen. Pulling myself up on the counter I turn my head and glance at the clock. 7:00. Aaron should be here any minute. I go and sit at the table and stare at the rose in the center. It looks perfect with no flaws or imperfections but eventually it will wilt and die, just like me. I look at the clock again this time it says 7:30. Where was Aaron? I get up and sit on the couch. My mind goes off to different places. I think about my mother. So beautiful and sweet. Those piercing soft grey eyes that my dad fell in love with. Her face is suddenly blurred and I see her car all smashed. In the hospital I remember seeing her broken face and the tears. I held her hand as I watched her eyes slowly close. She took her last breath in this world staring into my eyes; a tear falls down my cheek as I stare at her sweet face.

My mind snaps back into reality and I glance at the clock. Its 9:00. Aaron is two hours late. Where is he? I'm sure he would've called. I pick up my phone and dial his number. The phone rings and rings until it finally goes to the voicemail. "Hey Aaron. It’s Lex. I was just wondering where you were 'cause you said you would be here at 7 and its already 9. So just call me back when you get this message. I love you". The phone beeps then goes silent.

I wait until the clock says 9:30 to call his parents. I dial the number and on the second ring his mom picks up the phone.


"Hi this is Lexi"

"Oh hey Lexi. Is there something I can do for you?"

"Yeah. I was wondering if Aaron was still with you?"

"No sweetie, he isn't. He left the house two hours ago to go meet you. Is something wrong?"

"I don't know but Aaron never showed up, so I was just calling to see if you knew where he was."

"No. I’m sorry I don't know but if I hear from him I will let you know."

"Ok. Thanks Mrs. Flynn"

I say and hang up the phone, deciding to call his best friend Chase next.. Once again I dial the number and put the phone to my ear. Chase picks up.


"Hey Chase. It's Lexi."

"Oh hey Lex what's up?"

"Nothing I was just wondering if Aaron was with you"

"Nope haven't seen him. Why? Isn't he with you? He told me he had a date with you tonight"

"He never showed up. He was supposed to be here at 7 but I haven't seen him"

"I let you know if he calls. Ok?"

"Ok thanks Chase"

"No problem"

The phone goes silent. I look out the window. I know that Aaron is big and he can handle himself but I don’t know what I would do if I ever lost him.
