I still see him - the fault in our stars one shot

I chose to get inspired by the quote: "...I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once."

It's about a girl, who visits her dead boyfriend.


1. Maxxie

"...I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once."


It had been one year since Maxxie told me that he loved me, one year.

It was cold and windy, and tears streamed down my face as I sat down next to his grave.


Son, brother and boyfriend

Maxxie Alex Hudson

I put my hand up to touch the stone. “Hey Max, I hope that you’re listening. I really miss you, and it hurts knowing that you’re gone.” Then I heard feet moving across the graveyard, someone put their hands on my shoulders, and I turned around.

The he was, Maxxie.

“Maxxie? Is that you?” He nodded, and I stood up to give him a big hug, I couldn’t believe that he actually wasn’t dead, but as I tried to hug him, he disappeared. “Maxxie?” He wasn’t there. “Excuse me, miss. Are you okay?” I turned around, and a man with a big grey beard looked at me. “Yeah, I just thought that I saw someone.” “Who?” “My dead boyfriend.” It looked like he understood, what I was saying, even though it sounded crazy. “Did you know that if you miss someone enough, they will appear even though they’re dead?” I shook my head. “I didn’t, no.”

He clicked on a button on a remote in his hand. A door in a little house, which I hadn’t noticed, opened. “Here, take a look.” The man guided me into the room. “Do you see that woman?” I nodded. “She was my wife, she died five years ago, and I still see her the day today.” I looked around the room, which was filled with pictures of her. “You know what?” He asked. "...I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once." “I’m sorry but I’m not quite sure that I understand.” He smiled at me. “You know how when you're lying in bed and you gradually get sleepier and sleepier, and then all of a sudden you wake up and it's the next morning? That's how I fell in love. My affection for Michelle grew and grew slowly, and then before I realized what was happening, I was in love with her...”
