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."

6. Six


When I was little, I never imagined that my life would be full of tragedy. I always imagined my life to be all bubble gum and rainbows. That image turned out to be just a fantasy.  

One of my presents for my 16th birthday was the news that my mom was pregnant. I was so excited. I couldn't believe that I was going to have a baby brother or sister. When I found out it was a girl I was even more excited. I was ready to become a role model, help her out with high school, boys, mean girls, and anything else. 

My mom let me be the first to hold her. She was so small and innocent. Nothing bad had found its way into her sweet little mind. All she had was the image of my face staring into her eyes. 

We named her Charlotte, Charlie for short. My mom let me decorate her room and I was waiting for they day she could come home. 

On the night of her arrival I sat in Charlie's newly furnished room, staring at the mobile hung on the ceiling. That's when the news came. So similar to how I found out about Aaron. My phone rang and I picked it up only to be devastated by what I heard. 

A truck driver had fallen asleep at the wheel, swerved into the other lane, and hit their car straight on. My father came away from the accident with only a scratch. My mother and Charlie were both injured to the point of no return. 

That was my first experience with death and I prayed every night, that it would never happen again. Then I met Aaron and he helped me get through the pain of losing my mom and my baby sister. He was my anchor.



The moment Aaron's hand went limp and his chest stopped rising and falling I completely lost it.

Tears come flooding out of my eyes and fall on the bed sheet. The nurse comes in, takes one look at me crying and knows exactly what's happened. She slowly steps towards me with pity in her eyes. I throw myself protectively over Aaron lying in his hospital bed. The nurse pushes a button on the control board and asks for help. 

Another nurse comes into the room and they both try and remove me from Aaron. I fight them and scream in between the tears. This can't be happening. Not here. Not now. All I can think is why me? Why Aaron? What did I ever do to deserve this? What did Aaron do? He was always kind to everybody. "You cant take him away from me!" I scream at the nurse. Finally I give up and fall to the ground. I bury my face in my hands and cry. "Please don’t leave me." "Please." I say through tears.

His mom comes through the door. She sees Aaron and then sees me sitting on the floor crying. In an instant she is pulling me into her arms and we are both crying together. The nurses leave us alone for a few minutes but then they need to speak with Aaron's mom. She stands and leaves me alone on the cold hospital floor. 

The door creaks open slowly. My head darts up to the door to see who it is. Chase. I can't even look at him. Looking into his eyes forces memories into my mind of all the things the three of us did together. Chase was always the third wheel and Aaron and I used to tease him about it all the time.

"Lex I...." He starts but I don't let him finish. I'm wrapping my arms around him and crying into his chest. 

muffled 'why's come out of my mouth. Chase just holds me, making sure I don't drop to the ground. 


My prayers didn't work.
