"Hi." I said to my boyfriend, Andrew.

"Hey." He said. I picked up my computer from the table and ran up to my room and shut the door.

"How are you?"

"I'm good. You?"

"Better, sort of. It would be a lot better if you were here to help me."

"I know. I wish I was there too. But there's only 6 more days until I get to finally hold you in my arms." I smiled a little. I live in the US in Florida and he lives in the UK. We met on oovoo and now we Skype everyday. We've been together for two years now. I need him now more than even though. My best friend Kayden, who was like a brother to me, died in a car accident 3 days ago. I was a mess. I still am. I lived on my own, even though I'm only 16, until he died. I moved in with a friend. He's older than me by 5 years. He's a cop. He saved me when I was kidnapped and tortured 2 years ago and now we've been close ever since.

"I know. I've been counting." I turned the computer so he could see the jars that I had. One says "Days Gone By" and the other says "Days Left". They had marbles in them. Each day when I wake up I move one from "Days Left" to the "Days Gone By". So many have gone by. I am so excited and nervous to finally meet him in person for the first time. He smiled. His smile and everything about him is perfect.

After five hours of talking and me crying, I finally decided that it was time to go to bed. We said goodnight and hung up. I layer on my bed for a minute and smiled at the ceiling. Then I went to bed.

**************************************************************

(5 days later)

I woke up and went right to the jars on my dresser and moved one marble. One left. I smiled.

"What are you smiling about?" Asked Sam.

"Look." I said pointing to the almost empty jar. He smiled. Then I grabbed my phone to call Kayden. Then I remembered what happened. I felt the tears coming again. Sam came over and hugged me while I cried into his shoulder. Then, when I stopped crying I got dressed. I put on a tank top and sweatpants and brushed my hair. Then I got my phone and earbuds and got on my sneakers. Then I went to get my water bottle.

"Where are you going?" Asked Sam.

"To the track. I need to get out of the house unlike I've done for the past week and 2 days." I said.

"Oh. Ok. I'm probably gonna be gone when you get back. I'm gonna go get some extra food."

"Ok." I turned around and hit the chair behind me and fell. I've done that almost every day since Kayden died.

"Ow!" I said/yelled. Sam came over and helped me up.

"You ok?" He asked. I nodded. "Cathrine. Are you ok?"

"Yeah." He gave me the look like he knew I was lying. "No. I miss Kayden. I just want Andi to be here." He came over and hugged me again. I was crying again.

"Andrew will be here in 1 day. Hang in there." When I stopped crying, I walked down the street to the track. I put my earbuds in and started running. After an hour of running/jogging/walking, I finally stopped. As I was walking toward the street, I saw Alex, Cody, and Isaac. Alex is the captain of the football team and Cody and Isaac are in the team too. They are good friends of mine.

"Cathrine! Wait up!" Yelled Cody. I stopped and waited for them. When they caught up we just stood there for a second. I was looking down at my shoes. I wasn't at school for the last week because of everything that happened with Kayden. Even at the funeral I avoided everyone but Kayden's family and Sam.

"How have you been?" Asked Alex.

"Let's just say that if I said I was good I'd be lying." I said.

"Do you need company tomorrow?"

"No. At like 4:30 in the morning I have to drive to the airport with Sam buoy guys can come if you want."

"Sure. Why are we going to the airport?"

"To pick up Andrew."

"Oh yeah! He's coming tomorrow!" Said Isaac.

"Yeah." I smiled. "I gotta go. I'll call you later maybe."

"Bye." They all said. Then I walked home and went back to sleep again. I haven't slept much in the past 9 days. I wake up in the middle of the night or just cant fall asleep.
