1. Forever and Always

I was sitting on the kitchen table waiting for him to come home. I thought about the fight we had just before he stormed out the door and left me crying with my back against the wall and my face burried in my knees. It was a stupid fight. He thought i cheated on him with chad, his best friend since high school. Me and Chad became pretty good friends after he introduced me so of curse we'd hang out from time to time but it was nothing more. I would never cheat on him. I was his fiancé for god sake.

My mind goes back to December where he asked me to marry him:

"Hey, can i talk to you for a minute?"

"Sure, what's up?"

"Outside, please?"

"Uhm okay?"

He takes my hand and walks to the door, out to the backyard. "So you wanted to talk?"

"Uhh yeah" He scratches the back of his neck and looks down. He always does that when he's nervouse. 

"You know" He continues. "we've been together for a while now" He looks down again, and then goes down on one knee. My hands goes to my mouth in chock and my eyes fills with tears.

"I want you forever" He starts out. "Forever and always. Through the good and the bad and the ugly. We'll grow old together. Forever and always. so please make me the happiest man alive and marry me?" He pulled the most beautiful ring out of the pocket inside his jacket. Tears rolled down my cheeks by now and i jumped in his arms and whispered yes. He sat me down, took my hand and placed the ring on my finger.

I look out the window coming back to earth when the phone rings. I answer it quickly without looking at the display hoping to hear his voice. I gets a bit dissapointed when it's not his but I dosen't get to think much about it. The voice in the the other end tells me to come to the hospital quick as possible. I rushes  to the car and starts driving. It takes about 10 minutes but it feels like hours before I pulls up to the entrance. I runs to the front desk and one of the nurses leads me down a million halls, like a maze that is never ending. The nurse talks about what happend but I only hears a few words. Car crash.. Middle of New York.. Drunk driver.. Not going to survive.

Finally we gets to the right room. I am focused on keeping a straight face when we walks in but when i sit down beside him and holds his hand, almost too tight, it's hard. He seems to be in much pain but he smiles anyway. He has always been strong. We talk about the good life with the kids we would have and the house on the hillsite but i can't stop thinking about what the nurse said. He wouldn't survive. A tear escapes my eye and it's like he knows what i'm thinking.

"I wish we hadn't pushed the wedding" I nod in respond as i gets an idea. I walks to the room next door and borrows some rings from the couple inside. I ask the nurses to call a chaplain. The chaplain says a couple of verses and i looks him, my huspand now, in the eyes and says: "I want you forever, forever and always, through the good and the bad and the ugly. We'll grow old together, and always remember, whether happy or sad or whatever. We'll still love each other forever and always" I finish the vows with tears streaming down my face. The beeps are getting slower and his voice is to low when he says: "I love you forever. forever and always. Please just remember that even if I'm not there. I'll always love you, forever and always".
