Chapter 21

[ Astronomyy - Things I'd do for you ]


As everyone turn look at me but what catches my attention the most is the sight of Adrienne. Her eyes looking at me and this time I'm not even dreaming. I walk slowly towards her bed as my eyes never leave her eyes. "Adrienne?" I said softly .

"We will give you some time." Her dad said and all of them leave the room and now it just me and Adrienne who is still laying on the bed but her eyes are now open. I can't thank much about this.

"Adrienne. Is this for real?" I asks because I can't believe this is happening. My pray has been answered and here she is wake up from a come after a few months. "Thank god you're awake now. I miss you so much." I said to her but she just look at me silently. "What's wrong?" I ask her but she still didn't say anything but then I see the tears running out from her eyes.

"Why you crying? Hey did I said something wrong?" I wipe her tears and sit on the chair next to her bed.

"I-I'm sorry." She said.

"For what?"

"All this." I smile at her and hold her hand.

"It's fine. I'm here and always be with you no matter what. Don't cry." She finally smile and that's makes my heart feel so relieved. It's been a while since I last saw her smile. Her face looks so pale right now but she still beautiful in my eyes. "How are you feeling now?"

"Better I guess. I'm thirsty." I immediately take the glass and pour some water to let her drink. I help her to sit before gives her the glass of water. "Thanks." She hand me back the glass.

"You should tell me earlier. You don't have to keep this secret to yourself. I'm not going to leave you no matter what happened because my heart is already have your name on it and it will stay there as long as it will be." I said to her.

"I don't want you to be sad when I'm died. I have cancer which is people who had it will ended up died."

"Listen, don't think about that okay. Just thing how we can be a really happy couple for as long a we both live and I'll make you so happy. Every seconds, every minute or every hours. So I know this is not the right place to ask but will you be my girlfriend now?" I hold her hand and she look at me.

"I-" I cut her off.

"Well even though you're going to reject me again, I will take that as yes too. So from now, you are my girlfriend. We're a couple now. Yay!" I sequel and she let out a small chuckles. "You should be happy like me." I said to her.

"Yayyy." She said and I hug her.

"I miss you so much, Adrienne."

"I miss you too. Now, let's just make this without any tears." She said and I release from the hug and look at her. Even though she looks pale and thinner than before, she still the Adrienne that I love and that's the most important thing ever.


"Happy huh?" Right now, me, and all my friends are hanging out at diner near the hospital to give Adrienne some times with her parents too.

"You want me to be sad?" I asks Zach back.

"Nah I am so happy that now you is you." I take a sip of my drink. "Talking about you, what your plan after this?" He asks.

"I don't know. I never of my next plan yet.." I said.

"Okay enough with Joel's love story. Now, let's move to Zach's. Why don't you tell us about you and your cute girlfriend. We all didn't know the full story and now tell us." Isaac said and I look at Zach who looks uncomfortable talking about it or maybe he is shy to tell the full story. I don't know.

"Well it's just we turn out to like each other. So yeah I make a move and she said yes. That's it." Hayes scoffed. "What?" Zach asks looking at him.

"Bro this is not you. All you said just now was just ridiculous for me to hear." Hayes said and shake his head.

"Well up to you. I'm stating the truth." He said and seems like he is sulking right now.

"Ohhh someone need to be coax." Isaac tease. We laugh looking at Zach who act like a child.

Today is the best day for me. I am so thankful to God to make Adrienne wakes up again after a few month. Now I know she's going to be at the graduation and that also gonna be the best day of my life. I cannot wait to see her in convocation dress and hat.


After a long sleep, I finally can see my dad and mom again. My sight still a bit blurry but after a few minutes, it's getting better. I can feel hurt at my stomach due the surgery. I only move my head. Even my hands feel numb right now. "How you feeling Adrienne?" My dad asks. "Okay?" I nods my head. He smile and kiss my forehead. My mom looks at me with her smile. I can see her face is tired and her eyes are swollen. I don't like to make people that I love cry over me like this. I am happy because when I open my eyes, I can see my family and my friends. I don't even know that Joel would have the same feeling as me and still want me even in my condition like this.

Just then, the doctor walk in with two nurses behind him. "Hello Adrienne. Looks like you getting better than before now." He said. "Don't forget that you still have to eat your medication and Mr. Nelson, may I talk with you for a bit in my room?" I look at the doctor and my dad. It is about my current health? I started to make my own assumptions now. Then, they both walk out together from my room and leaving me with my mom.

"I'm going to be okay right?" I asks her.

"Yes you are honey. Don't think to much. It's going to make you stress." I look at her and can't help from thinking and what are the doctor want to talk to my dad. Just then, my mom's phone is ringing. I just look at her pick up the phone. She walk a bit far from me and to the window.

"What?" She said. I wonder what it is.

"Adrienne, I need to go home now because there's an emergency. I'm so sorry but I promise I'll come back later. Love you." She said and before I could say anything, she rushed out from my room.
