A/N: Guys I can't stop writing...I feel like a genius. So heres chapter 4!! :D OK, the picture is pretty big, but it's just so cute :3

Chapter Four:

So close, but yet so far.


"You're amazing." He whispered against my lips.

I look up and into his eyes. My hands where on each side of his neck. He was dangerously close. Without any hesitation I stood on the tops of my toes, and kissed him. He pulled away smiling.

"And perfect." He kissed my forehead.

"Not even close." I mumbled.

"Close enough." His arms wrapped around my waist, andd he pulled me into one last kiss.


My eyes snapped open at the mention of his name. I looked around. I was in my room, asleep in my bed. It was just a dream, but yet it felt so real. Alex ...

The realness of the dream was to much. It made me realize how much I wanted him. How much I needed him. I could deal with him being a jack ass. I could deal with his arrogant way. I couldn't deal without him. The past few weeks have changed how I look at people.Just as I was starting to think about things to much, my cell phone started to ring. I quickly clicked the asnwer button.


"Nina, it's Alex. I'm coming to get you right now. I need to know where you live."

"What, is everything alright?"

"No, but God Damn it, just tell me where you live!"

"33 Mapple street." I spat out, almost afraid he didn't understand me.

"I will be there is thirty seconds.Be ready, or I'm leaving without you."The line whent dead. I looked around the room. All I needed was my jacket, and boots.

I threw my hair up into a bun, and then tossed my jacket over my head. It landed softly on my shoulders. I looked around trying to find my Uggs. I found one, and put it on my foot. I found the other one in the back of my closet. I ran to the door while trying to put my shoes on. Fail. I had to stop and make sure that they were on the right way so I wouldn't fall.Just as I locked the door, there was a loud annoying beep from a car. I knew right away it was Alex.

I ran down the stairs and right into the street. I saw his car parked across the street. I ran, and opened the door to the car. I threw myself into the passanger seat.

"Hey." I greeted him.

He didn't answer back, he just looked at me. There were tears threatening to spill from his eyes. His light brown hair a mess, and falling all over the place. He smelled of cigarettes, and Vodka.

"Alex..?" Once again his name was being spoken tonight.

"They are making her go now. Theres not a lot of time left to operate. We need to go now!"

His old red Chevy truck sped down the street and towards the highway. Passing from car to car. Rain was slpatting against the windows. Thunder could be herd in the distance. I rested my head on top of Alex's. He looked at me, but didn't smile. His eyes were dark and skary.

"Why do you care?"

"You shouldn't care. Actually, you don't care. You just want the money from my sister."

He didn't mean it. He was probably a little buzzed from the Vodka he had. He wasn't going to remember saying those words. He would go to sleep, and not remember any of this when he woke up.

"But I do care." I whispered.

"Well stop, no one asked you too." He romoved his hand from under mine.

He stayed focused on the road for the longest time. The speads of the car kept increasing and decreasing. Before I knew it the car stopped all together. I looked out my window to see that we had arrived at the airport. I got out of the car as fast as I could, and tried to run into the airport, but Alex grabbed my wrist. He pulled me close to him.


"Stop!" I help my hand up to prove my point. "I don't want to hear it. Just let me say goodbye to your sister, and then please just take me home." I let myself out of his grip, and started to walk again.

I walked from hallway, to hallway until I found Sophie. She was standing the the middle of an empty hallway. Her parents walking behind her. I ran up to her, and hugged her.

"Nina!" She threw her arms around me. "I was worried that I wouldn't be able to say goodbye."

"Well don't be." I laughed. "Are you excited for Cali?"

"Of course! Mamma booked me a room, with a view of the beach!"

"Wow, I wish I could go."

Just then Alex reached us. He pulled his sister into a light hug, and ruffled her hair. She smiled up at him, and then turned to face me again. "You should come. Alex leaves tomorrow, and he has an extra ticket!" She looked back and forth from me and her brother. "Alex please take Nina!"

Alex looked at me, and shrugged. "I don't think she wants to go."

Sophie pouted. "But you want to go right?" She asked me. She looked so fragile. All of her hair was now gone, and she was even skinnier than she was last week. I'm pretty sure all of the lunch she ate yesterday didn't do anything.

"Of course I want to go, but what about the botique?" I asked her.

"Oh I don't know, but I really want you to come Nina. Please?" She stuck her bottom lip out even more. She was so much like her brother, but in all the right ways.

I looked from Alex, to Sophie. Alex wasn't looking at me, but Sophie was. Her dull blue eyes were looking right back into mine. Her bottom lip was still stuck out, and her hand reached out and grabbed mine. Her boney fingers laced through mine. "Please." She whispered.Alex didn't want me there. Their parents didn't want me there." You will have to share a room with Alex, but I promise her wont bother you." She kept begging.

"Okay." I gave in. "I will keep the shop closed, but for no more than five days."

"Yes!" She clapped her hands together. It reminded me of the first day I met her. How happy she was when I told her I would fix the necklace.

I looked up at Alex, again. His eyes were even darker than before. His fist were clenched. He stormed out of the airport without even saying goodbye to his sister.

"Attention, now boarding flight 398. Now boarding flight 398."

Sophie looked over at her parents. "Well, thats us." She gave my hand one last squeze, and then hugged me one last time. I couldn't help but to cry when she started to walk away.

Slowly, I made my way back to Alex's truck. The rain was starting to stop, and the thounder was even lower than before. I reached the car only to find it running, and Alex inside. I flung my door open, and slammed it shut when I was inside. I turned to face Alex.

"What is your problem? Forget what you said to me, but you can't even say goodbye to your sister? What kind of older brother are you? A shitty one. A very shitty older brother." I yelled at him.

His head moved, and then he was facing me. "Shut up!" He yelled.

"Excuse me?"

"You herd me. Now shut up so I can get you home, and maybe get an hour of sleep before I have to wake up, and drag your ass to California with me."

I instantly closed my mouth. We drove in silence the whole way back to my apartment. When we got there, I jumped out of the car. I didn't even bother saying good night. I slammed the door, and made my way back inside so I could pack. I really wasn't looking forward to this trip, but I would do anything for Sophie right now.


A/N: Kinda short, Kinda sloppy. Sorry guys, but I just really wanted to get this chapter up before the school week started again. I may not update for a few days, but four chapters is a lot for one girl to write in about 24 hours. :P

Hope you guys can understand, and the next chapter will make up for this one!!

XoXo Taylor.

I really love your story, and you must have researched hard to think of each symptom of cancer, you go into so much detail! I don't know what i like more: the details, the characters, the idea, the plot, just... all of it. By the way, if you need any help with choosing that bracelet (if you haven't already), my friend makes jewellery and im sure she would be happy to make one for your exact specifications. Thanks - Angel. :)
