A week ago I lost my best friend she died after a hit-and-run accident on our way to meet her boyfriend the worst part of it all is I offered her a Lift To the restaurant but she declined I should’ve taking no for an answer and it’s all my fault
Looking at the clock it’s almost 6:30 in the end of work on Friday and I’ll look tomorrow right cubicle to see Lia looking at the clock as well and her computer is off “ Hey Lia are you done already?” I said to her and she replied “ yeah I finished like 20 minutes ago you?” And I said “ i’m almost done” before I could say anything else a phone pings and she looked at it and she was smiling and I said to her “ am I still dropping you off at Jack’s house?” And she said “ actually no I’m meeting him at a restaurant two blocks away”
And I said to her “ OK I can drop you off” she replied saying “ no it’s OK I need some air before I get there I will walk thank you though” she started packing her bag and she came to my cubicle and gave me a hug and kiss saying “ I love your soul sister” and started walking away and I called out to her saying “I love you too heifer call me with the details” and she went into the elevator laughing
* end of flashback*
That was the last time I saw my best friend my soul sister and now here I am sitting it’s a graveyard crying my eyes out in front of Lia’s grave “ I miss you so much and I am so sorry I was in there with you “ * 😭 😭😭 I …I ..I don’t know how to carry-on without you I miss you so so much”😭😭😭 I cried for what felt like a years worth of tears in 10 minutes or less as I put the flowers I had on the head stone my phone pings indicating I have a text, getting my phone out of my purse I see is a text from Amelia‘s dad Mr. black asking me to come to his house he has a few things he wants to give me that he found in Lia’s room
Arriving at Mr. blacks house and knocked on the door and waited for about five minutes I rang the doorbell again and when he opened the door I was really shocked at his state he looked like he hasn’t showered in a few days he was wearing a white vest that had stains all over it and a pair of basketball shorts he didn’t say anything he just went back inside the house and I followed him up the stairs into Lia’s .
As I walked inside Lia’s room the first thing I noticed was a wall full of our pictures on it I sit on her bed instead of crying her dad sitting next to me and he put his hand on my shoulder and I look to him he looked at me and he said to me “ do not blame yourself it wasn’t your fault” and that made me cry even harder he stood up and went into her closet and came back carrying a box and he gave it to me and he said “ Lia would want you to have these” I think them and I told him I was going to go and I left and drive back to my apartment and when I got home I went straight into my bedroom and put the box on the bed and I started going through it and everything I touched smelled like her and it brought back memories but one thing that really broke me was when I saw the book we wrote our bucket list and I couldn’t help but cry after about 10 minutes of crying I decided I was going to complete the bucket list both mine and hers and maybe during that time it would heal my heart and decided that today was the last day I will cry because she wouldn’t want me crying like this every day she would want me to celebrate her and that’s what I’m gonna do so for the last time I went to bed and cried myself to sleep.
