I didn't want to believe what I saw.

A hand flew to my mouth and a sob escaped from my chest.

I fell on my knees and a stream of tears fell along my face.

My hand reached out as if to save you.

But before I touched you, I knew I was too late.

I pulled my hand back and ran while crying.

But I'll never forget your green eyes.

--The Day I Lost You Forever--

As I wrapped the towel around my body, I remember that I forgot to feed my cat. Neo. He was a half-siamese half-stray. But even though he's like that I love every little thing about him. His jade green eyes, his ebony fur and his loving self. A smile spread across my face when I went out the bathroom. I went up the stairs and put some clothes on. I had on a white shirt and shorts. I grabbed the brush that was on my cabinet and went down the stairs humming the song 'Samson' by Regina Spektor. I flopped down on the sofa while combing my hair. "Hey Daddy!" I said as I spotted him emerging from the kitchen. "What's for dinnah?" He flashed me a smile. "Secret." I rolled my eyes at him and hugged my paw-shaped soft blue pillow. My brother and sister was watching TV and playing at the same time on the carpet that was in front of the sofa. Usually, Neo was always sprawled across the arm chair scratching it. But he was nowhere to be found. I shrugged and went to the kitchen. I got his kitty bowl and prepaired his food. I settled it down on the usual place where I put it. "Neo!" I called for him. "Neo! Food's ready." You might think that saying that towards a cat is silly. That speaking to him like a human that understands is silly. But it's not. He actually comes up running towards me, but not this time. For the fifth time I called, I got worried. He was never like this. "Daddy? Where's Neo?" I asked him without turning to look at him. "Huh? What? Oh! I don't know honey. Maybe he's outside catching something to eat, since you're 2 hours late on feeding him." He teased. I shook my head and went outside. I looked outside of our house and at the park nearby. I can't find him anywhere. Since it was dark and the moon was hidden behind clouds and he's a black cat, he's hard to find. I sighed and stood outside of the door with hands on my hips. I saw something shiny black in my peripheral vision, I looked at it and froze. At first, I thought he was just sleeping. Then I realized that he was so stiff.My vision blurred and on impulse, I ran inside the house. I grabbed my paw-shaped pillow and clutched it against my chest like my life depended on it. I backed against the wall and slid down on the floor. The first stream of tears ran down the side of my cheeks. But somehow, I managed to croak out the words. But it came out as a command.

"Dad. Go check if Neo's alright. He's beside the door outside."

He looked at me one time and darted out the door. I fighted the thoughts that was in my mind. He's dead...Someone whispered in my mind. I shook my head violently as if to shake the thoughts away.No! No! No!He. Is. Not! I shouted in my mind. My eyes started to fill. I had to bite my lip to prevent the sob that was building in my chest, and Iclosed my eyes to prevent any tears tospill. Iheard thefootsteps on our tiles. I opened my eyes slowly. My thoughts at that moment were, Listen and see that you have nothing to worry about. Dad'll just say that Neo's just sleeping... Yes, that's right. He's gonna say that Neo's just sleeping. As I opened them, I saw Dad's sad sad eyes. A lump formed in my throat and I knew my face was blank and expressionless. But inside, my heart was broken into pieces. I knew if I tried to speak I would loose it. My mind was going on and on and on. No! No! No! It screamed over and over again. My shirt was soaked because of the never-ending flood of tears. But no sound came out of me. Dad spoke sadly while I cried without any sound. "Summer, if you want... we can bury him." I nodded without emotion. I didn't know how many minutes had passed but I just moved while I cried and clutched the pillow against my chest. I watched while dad made a small coffin and dug out a hole for the coffing to fit into. It was just in our garden. Tears spilled while he did that. And finally, when he lifted the cold stiff Neo. It was like he broke a steel door that held all my emotions. The very first violent sob came out of me. Then it didn't stop. He laid Neo inside the coffin and put the coffin inside the hole and filled the hole again. When he tried to hug me, I just jerked away. He left me there and I wept and sobbed.

I stayed there looking at the place where we buried him for almost an hour. I whirled around and picked a rose that was planted in our garden and carefully placed it at the top of the big pile of soil that covered the coffin. As the the tears spilled from my eyes, I bowed my head and cried violently. I send a silent prayer to God and sat down on the chair my dad put outside. The tears still haven't stopped. My shirt and my pillow was soaked. I recalled every memory we had together. I looked at the place where we buried him and thought, Why did you leave me? It may seem silly but, he was the only thing that was keeping me together. As I thought about how I found him there. The wind whirled around me. And it started to drizzle. I went inside and up to my room. I wouldn't let anyone talk to me or touch me. Igrabbed my phone and called my mom. She wasn't answering it. That night, I slept without having dinner and any dreams.

In the morning, I woke up with my mom beside me. Iimmediately hurled myself into her arms and cried....

Up until now, that day haunts me. Ihope that he's happy and safe up there.....
