I heard the voice calling my name in a low whisper. I began to open my eyes and was greeted with a bright white lighten room. I touched my stomach and there was no pregnancy bump. I looked down at my body and I was in an all white gown, with my skin glowing. My feet were floating up off the ground. I felt as light as a feather and there was no pain, no sadness in my heart. For once I felt at peace.
I felt a hand rest on my shoulder. Something told me that this wasn't a bad presence, but more of a welcoming and a warmth. I turned around.....
I didn't know how to respond. Seeing him after so long, made my heart feel so happy and so relived after all the pain I had gone through. His eyes, so beautiful and so emerald green. His hair shiny and as beautiful as I remember it. His skin was glowing just like mine and his beautiful smile that I could never forget, appeared once again. He reached his arms out, in a welcoming warmth.
I ran straight into them and I could smell that smell I remembered off of him. A smell of rain and sunshine. The smell I longed for when I was upset and he would come to comfort me with. The smell I longed for when I needed him through my darkest times. The smell I longed for until now.
"Where am I ?" I asked. I peered into his eyes and I asked so softly, barely as a whisper. He looked down into my own blue eyes and kept on smiling his genuine smile. "You came here and this is where I found you." He said.
Am I dead? Am I alive? Is this a dream?
"Wait, what about our child, what happened to her? Where is she !" I began panicking as I didn't know her whereabouts or what has happened. Joey pulled me to him and held my face in his hands and aligned my face so I was forced to look into his eyes. "I haven't even been with you for one minute and you're already freaking out." He said, jokingly. I missed that so much about him... he could make any moment, that could be so tense, into something so relaxing and comfortable.
"Relax." He said. "Everything is okay. You were the one who brought me here. You asked for me, and now I'm here."
I looked at him.... confused. And then I remembered, when I prayed, I asked for him. So must this mean I really am dead?
"Am... am... I dead?" I asked, uneasy.
Joey laughed and shook his head. "No... you're not dead, silly. Or at least.... I don't think you are...." I looked at him once he said this in shock and he held up his hands in defense. "I'm just kidding, buttercup. Relax!" I let out a sigh of relief and he began to laugh. "I love you... ya know that?"
Hearing him say these words made my heart skip a beat. A smile crept up onto my face and I felt whole again.
"Let me show you somethin', Chlo."
He held out his hand and waved me to come hold onto it. I looked at his hand and then his gorgeous face. I stepped closer to him and I slipped my palm into his. A gust of wind blew my hair back to the point where I squinted my eyes. We soon halted to a stop.... I looked down....
We were soon floating and overlooking my pregnant body, on the operating table.
