" How could you!" I shrieked at my boyfriend Kyle " How dare you yell that out like that, that isn't fair to me. To find out this way, how dare you use that to try and spite Yvette!"
"Chelsea, please listen," Kyle pleaded, he put his hand on my shoulder. But I shrugged it off.
"How can you say something like that and expect me to brush it off?" I turned away and ran for the docks knowing I had just enough time to slip from the dock on my 24ft racing keel before Kyle had a chance to catch up to me. I jumped onto my boat and fired up the engine, before slipping the mooring lines and leaving the dock. Out on the water I was in my element I belonged out here. Here I could think without being judged or having to face the busy world and right now, I really needed to think about everything that had just occurred. I glanced back at the marina and saw Kyle standing on the point staring at me.
I felt the breeze began to pick up. I put the boat on auto pilot and climbed out onto the side and towards the mast, pulled the sail cover off and climbed back to the wheel house. I turned on the auto hoist and my main sail began to raise, I reached over and began to hand hoist the jib sail, once both sails were fully up I turned off auto and switch off my engine.
I would be spending the next 3 days on this boat with Kyle and my
best friend Yvette in a race from Windsor to Sarnia. The next
three days would be hell with the 3 of us at each others throats.
I thought about the moments leading up to the world shattering
news, Kyle and Yvette had been fighting it was nothing new, she
was my best friend and he was my boyfriend. Yvette was standing
at the top of the stairs I was sitting on the stairs and Kyle was
standing at the bottom,
//"Don't think just because your in a bad mood that you had any right to stick your big nose into my personal life!" Yvette yelled at Kyle.
"So its my fault that I got bad news from my mom this morning, and besides my mood doesn't change anything Yvette he isn't good for you he's an asshole!" Kyle told her.
"I could careless if you got bad news you simply had not right to tell me who I can and can't date that isn't your place Kyle!"
" I just found out I'm on a heart transplant list!" he yelled and just like that my world came crumbling down around, I got up and ran away from them.//
I shuddering thinking about the conversation and the news scared me, I could lose him, this could kill him and I ran away from when he needed me most. But the way he had brought it up wasn't fair, yelling something like that out in a conversation wasn't right there was no need to do it that way. He could have told me many different ways.
But he really did need me right now.
I turned the boat around and started sailing for the marina. I used the auto hoists to lower both sails back down I could put the sail covers on when I got onto the dock. I switched the engine on and headed for my spot on the marina docks. Kyle was waiting for me on the dock, in my bad mood I hadn't even bothered to pull my fenders on board so I didn't have to worry about putting them out.
I tossed my stern mooring line to Kyle before climbing forward to grab my bow mooring line, I grabbed the line and tied it onto the dock. I climbed back to the wheelhouse and killed the engine before I climbed down into the cabin of the boat. I grabbed a bottle of water out of the mini fridge we had on board . My parents had bought me this boat as a sweet 16 gift, when I showed promise in sailing competitions. My parents had died last year when a drunk driver hit them head on. I heard Kyle climbing down the cabin ladder when he reached the bottom I threw myself into his arms.
"I'm sorry I ran away from you" I said
"I'm not mad at you, you had all the right, I know your scared I am to."
"Your not allowed to die!" I said tears rolling down my cheeks.
"I wont," he promised
" But there is a chance that you could," I said pulling away from him.
"Don't think about that, it wont be for a long time I'm at the
bottom of list and I'm not in critical condition, it'll be a few
years before they even considering looking for a heart for me,
"Okay," I said swallowing my tears, he gently wiped my face with his fingers, Kyle had been through everything with me, I owed everything to him.
