“Baby can you come over? I really need to talk to you about something,” My boyfriend Nate says as we talk on the phone.
“But were talking now?” I say perplexed.
“I know, but what I have to say, I’d rather say in person.” He says shakily.
“I can’t my parents would kill me if I went to your house at this time of night!”
“Baby please it’s really important,” he pleads.
“Okay, fine. But I’ll meet you at the park just down the road from me. Okay?”
“Thank you baby, I’ll see you in 10 minutes?”
“Yeah okay,” I say, worried. What could be so important that he has to tell me in person? And especially at this
time of night.
I saw Nate as I walked up the cement sidewalk, he was sitting on the swing set with an blank expression. Oh no! It’s bad!
“Hey babe, what did you need to see me about?” I asked nervously.
He didn’t say anything he just walked up and embraced me in a tight hug, planting a passionate kiss on my lips.
“Babe just before I say anything, just know that I love you,” he starts, while staring into my eyes.
“Okay, I love you too, but Nate you’re starting to worry me, what’s going on?” I say in a rush.
He sighs, and looks back up at me with tears in his eyes, “I remember when we first met,” He says mainly to himself, “I loved you from the second I laid
eyes on you,” I tear made its way down his face as he said this.
“What’s going on Nate?” I ask, panicked.
“I loved the way you smile, the way you laughed, your long brown hair and your gorgeous sea green eyes that, every time I look at them I feel like there’s
no one else around me, just you and me.” He continued with a sigh, “I don’t want to lose you Ally.”
“You’re not going to lose me baby, I love you too but you’re going to have to tell me what’s wrong!” I plead.
“Do you remember last summer, how my mother passed away from cancer?” he says cryptically.
“Yeah, but what does this have to do with anything?” I ask, starting to get scared.
“Well it turns out that it’s hereditary,”
“What are you trying to say Nate?” I ask, not wanting to believe what im hearing.
“Baby I have cancer,” as the words left his mouth I crumbled to the sand beneath the swing, and cry, my legs unable to hold me up as I sob.
“No! No! No!” I cry, as he wraps his arms around me in a tight grip, feeling safe in his arms and never wanting to move.
“Baby don’t cry, shhh, it’s okay, shhh,” he soothed me, wiping my tears off my cheeks with a soft kiss.
“Please, please, tell me this is a dream, please!” I beg as new tears poured down my cheeks.
“I’m sorry baby it’s not,” he said quietly, as if even he didn’t want to admit it to himself.
His phone rang and he quickly answered, as he talked in a hushed voice I took the time to wipe the tears off my now red and blotchy face, and to calm myself
“That was my dad,” he says as he hangs up the phone, “I have to go home, I have treatment in the morning.”
As he mentioned the treatment more tears formed and I tried desperately not to release them, but to no avail.
“Aw baby don’t cry,”
“I’m sorry, it’s just, I’m scared im going to lose you,” I wept into his shirt once again.
“I know baby I’m scared too, and trust me I don’t want to lose you either,” he says.
“I love you Nate,” I say as were about to part.
“I love you too Ally,” he says with a kiss, “and Ally, remember, if anything happens it will always be true, forever and always, and that love will never
This was 6 months ago, and unfortunately, the cancer was to far spread and I lost Nate forever, I think this as the priest says
the his speech, and I can’t help wonder, if Nate is looking down on me right now.
But regardless of the situation and the tears that are streaming down my face, I know that I will love him, forever and always because my love for him will
