I didn't know what else to do, but I knew what I wasn't going to do…Let go of him. Everyone stood around me holding Landon on the operation table. I was holding his cold dead body and I didn't
care. I tried so hard to pull myself together, this was the moment I should've proven that I can handle this, I can handle the pressure and that I was strong enough….And I failed.
"Honey" sobbed mum rubbing my back "You need to let go of him".
I didn't say anything; I just sat there and hugged Landon even tighter. If I let go they'd take him and I won't see him again, I won't see Landon again.
"It's been 2 hours" said a nurse walking closer to me and mum "We really need the OR".
"It's not enough you killed him?" Ronnie yelled at the nurse.
"Ronnie" said her dad in a warning tone.
"I'm not letting go" I yelled "Don't even try cause I won't".
Everyone looked at me in sorrow but I didn't really see any of them. All I could see was Landon's body. His lips became grey, his scent became different…he didn't smell like Landon he smelt like death and the blood was no longer in his cheeks…He looked dead, he is dead.
I was around 9 and I was hiding with Landon under a blanket on his bed with a torch as we tried to make animal shadows with our hands.
"You suck at this" he said as I rolled my eyes.
"That's because my hands are bigger than yours" I said "Landon?".
"Yeah?" he answered.
"Can you promise me something?" I asked as he raised an eyebrow at me "Lets be friends forever".
"I don't know Summer" he said unsure while he rubbed the back of his neck "Forever seems like a really long time".
"That's why you have to promise me" I insisted.
He closed his eyes and sighed "Fine but don't plan to bail out on me".
"Of course I won't" I said smiling as he nodded and I we did a pinky swear.
~End Of Flashback~
I wasn't about to break that promise now. I knew I couldn't stay holding him like that forever but I needed him, I needed to feel him close to me just for now.
"Summer" said Landon's mother gritting her teeth "Leave my son's body alone, you have done enough harm already".
I heard her and I was confused about what she was saying but I didn't even bother to answer her.
"What's that supposed to mean?" said Ronnie in anger as my mum nodded in agreement to Ronnie's question.
Landon's mother seemed like she regretted saying that "Nothing….But Summer you need to let go of him, his body will rotten if you don't".
"I'm not letting go" I sobbed "I won't let Landon go".
"He's not Landon" said Raymond as everyone looked at him surprised "The moment his heart stopped beating he stopped being Landon, this is just his body and now…. Landon's inside of us and that's where he will always be".
I couldn't help but break into tears loudly. I was crying silently for two hours but now… It was too hard to take.
The nurses slowly walked to me and pulled me gently off him as I slowly let go off Landon. Once I was off Landon, Raymond walked behind me and put his arms around my waist.
"It's over now" he whispered in my ear as a shiver went down my spine.
I felt my eyes burn from tears as I watched the nurses cover Landon's face once again with the sheet.
