You never say good- bye to love.

This morning when I woke up the first face that I was happy to see was his. His golden brown hair, stain glass green eyes, his soft pink lips. I pictured him like he was really standing right in front of me.

As I hopped out of bed to get ready he’s the one that I was glad to get ready for each day. I just couldn't wait to get to school and see him smile his bright white smile at me.

I skipped all the way downthe hall at school heading off to my first class, knowing that in a few minutes I would get to hear his tenor voice as he talked to me and hearing his contagious laugh fill the room as I said something funny.

I sat there with my hands cuffed trying to contain my joy that was bubbling over inside of me because, today on our way homeI was going to tell him how I felt.

But then my joy slowly left as the bell rang and he didn’t walk through the door. Where did he go? He had never missed a day of school before. He might just be sick? Ya, that was it. He was sick. i told myself but, i couldn't help but think that something was wrong.

The next day I didn’t wake up with the same enthusiasm. I still got dressed but I didn’t feel like trying as hard just thinking about how he might not be there again.

I sat in class waiting again for him to walk right through the door that sat right in front of my desk. But, again, the bell rang and he still wasn’t there.
Where did he go? Had he left? Nah, the football, baseball, and basketball star wouldn’t have left without warning. My BEST FRIEND wouldn’t have left without saying good-bye.I told myself not wanting to believe it but knowing that it might be true.

Maybe I was just paranoid, or maybe I was dreaming… but I had one of those feelings that something was just, well... WRONG. You know how when your friends upset and you can just tell, even when they try to hide it. This was a feeling like that.

The next day I got up with no strength what so ever. I just didn’t no what the point was if I had nothing, or nobody, to get ready for.

As I sat in class I stared at the door lifeless thinking maybe he would show today. But as the bell rang again, he didn’t come. In fact the rest of the week he still hadn’t showed.

I was going crazy. Where was he? How could your best friend just disappear without saying anything? I felt like nothing without him. I had nothing to live for now.

After a couple of weeks I realized how much I neededhim and toknow what happened to him so I drove down to his house and to my surprise their was a moving van in the drive way and a young couple taking boxes out caring them inside.

I parked my car on the curb in front of the house and hopped out slamming the door behind me. The young lady carrying boxes turned around and looked at me. “Is your name Holly?” she asked giving me a warm smile.

I was a little taken back by her knowing my namebut, I nodded at the lady as I walked up to the side walk.

She sat the box down and put up one fingerindicating that she would bejust a second and ran inside. As I waited for the lady I stared at the moving van trying to figure out why he didn’t tell me. It just didn’t make any sense. We had known each other sense pre- k and he was just going to leave without a single word?

My thoughts were interrupted by the young lady again standing in front of me. She was holding a letter out to me waving it in front of meso i wouldtake it. I carefully took it from her hand and looked down at it. It was a small letter stuffed in an envelope with my name on it.

“It was in the house when me and my husband got here.” she looked over at him and he smiled at me and went back to carring boxes into the house. “I hope you don’t mind but I read it. I wasn’t really sure what it was and I was curious.” I shook my head at her and looked down at the letter knowing that all my answers had to be in there. “Read it.” the girl squealed with excitement.

I slowly opened it up and it read.--

Hey Holly,

I know if you’re reading this right now your probably wondering what‘s going on. Well I‘m going to make this short, my dad got a new job and we moved to California. Now I no your mad now that I didn‘t say good- bye and I’m sorry that I didn’t but, I couldn’t bring myself to do it. I didn’t want to say good- bye to you, Holly. You have been there for me from the beginning. You were my first friend, my best friend, you were the first one that I went to for advice, you were my first kiss at the age of six (I‘ll never forget that), you were even right by my side in five minutes the first time that I got my heart broken. We played together, chased the monsters out from under the bed together, fought about the stupidest stuff, laughed at the most random things, and even cried together when one of us were in pain. To this day I remember you running to my house at two in the morning when I called you and told you that my mom had died in a car accident. We stayed up all night and you cried when I cried, laughed when I laugh, and you sat there with me when I just didn’t want to say anything. You were my first love, Holly, and we had spent a lifetime together. I couldn’t bring myself to say good-bye to you because I didn’t want it to be good-bye yet. Good-bye is just to permanent and I know that I’m gong to see you again one day. So this is a see you later letter. Not a goodbye letter. I really hope that you get this and that you forgive me. I’ll come back. I’m not sure when but there is no way that I can stay away from you. I Love You Holly. I always have and I always will. See you soon.

Love, Chase

As I looked up tears ran from my eyes. The lady was still standing there in front of me and a tear rolled down her cheek with me. “He really loves you.”

I took in a deep breath as I looked down at the letter. “I love him too.” I said as I folded up the letter and put it back into the envelope. “Thanks.” i said to her.She nodded at me and I walked back to my car.
