"Baby can you come over? I really need to talk to you
about something," My boyfriend Nate says as we talk on the
"But were talking now?" I say perplexed.
"I know, but what I have to say, I'd rather say in
person." He says shakily.
"I can't my parents would kill me if I went to your
house at this time of night!"
"Baby please it's really important," he
"Okay, fine. But I'll meet you at the park just down
the road from me. Okay?"
"Thank you baby, I'll see you in 10
"Yeah okay," I say, worried.
What could be so important that he has to tell me in person?
at this time
I saw Nate as I walked up the cement sidewalk, he was
sitting on the swing set with an blank expression. Oh no! It's
"Hey babe, what did you need to see me about?" I asked
He didn't say anything he just walked up and embraced
me in a tight hug, planting a passionate kiss on my
"Babe just before I say anything, just know that I love
you," he starts, while staring into my eyes.
"Okay, I love you too, but Nate you're starting to
worry me, what's going on?" I say in a rush.
He sighs, and looks back up at me with tears in his
eyes, "I remember when we first met," He says mainly to himself,
"I loved you from the second I laid eyes on you," I tear made its
way down his face as he said this.
"What's going on Nate?" I ask, panicked.
"I loved the way you smile, the way you laughed, your
long brown hair and your gorgeous sea green eyes that, every time
I look at them I feel like there's no one else around me, just
you and me." He continued with a sigh, "I don't want to lose you
"You're not going to lose me baby, I love you too but
you're going to have to tell me what's wrong!" I
"Do you remember last summer, how my mother passed away
from cancer?" he says cryptically.
"Yeah, but what does this have to do with anything?" I
ask, starting to get scared.
"Well it turns out that it's hereditary,"
"What are you trying to say Nate?" I ask, not wanting
to believe what im hearing.
"Baby I have cancer," as the words left his mouth I
crumbled to the sand beneath the swing, and cry, my legs unable
to hold me up as I sob.
"No! No! No!" I cry, as he wraps his arms around me in
a tight grip, feeling safe in his arms and never wanting to
"Baby don't cry, shhh, it's okay, shhh," he soothed me,
wiping my tears off my cheeks with a soft kiss.
"Please, please, tell me this is a dream, please!" I
beg as new tears poured down my cheeks.
"I'm sorry baby it's not," he said quietly, as if even
he didn't want to admit it to himself.
His phone rang and he quickly answered, as he talked in
a hushed voice I took the time to wipe the tears off my now red
and blotchy face, and to calm myself down.
"That was my dad," he says as he hangs up the phone, "I
have to go home, I have treatment in the morning."
As he mentioned the treatment more tears formed and I
tried desperately not to release them, but to no
"Aw baby don't cry,"
"I'm sorry, it's just, I'm scared im going to lose
you," I wept into his shirt once again.
"I know baby I'm scared too, and trust me I don't want
to lose you either," he says.
"I love you Nate," I say as were about to
"I love you too Ally," he says with a kiss, "and Ally,
remember, if anything happens it will always be true, forever and
always, and that love will never die."
This was 6 months ago, and
unfortunately, the cancer was to far spread and I lost Nate
forever, I think this as the priest
says the his speech, and I can't help wonder, if Nate is looking
down on me right now.
But regardless of the situation and the tears that are
streaming down my face, I know that I will love him, forever and
always because my love for him will never
