I gaped at him, my life slowly draining out of me. I was aware of the difficulty I had in breathing. My eyes blurred and tears fell on unbidden on my cheeks. I knew what this meant and it scared me. I couldn’t see him anymore. I couldn’t see those twinkling blue eyes that had caught my attention from day one.
“Harley” I could hear him sob. I wanted to soothe him, wipe his tears away but I couldn’t. My hands twitched numbly, hoping to feel his warmth one last time.
I felt another teardrop on my cheeks, my chest so painful that I didn’t know if it was physical or emotional pain. Probably both.
Neither of us expected to be here and yet here we were, two souls connected in more ways than one. His fingers squeezed mine and with the last of my strength, I squeezed back.
I forced my eyes to clear, to get one clear of him. And with that came in the painful realization. I wasn’t ready to leave. I wanted to live. Experience life with him. I loved him. I knew it now.
“I...love you” I said, painfully slow, a weight lifting off my shoulders. I finally closed my eyes, all thoughts leaving my head, only focused on hearing his ‘I love you’s’ and smiled.
There we have it. The prologue. Honestly, it was hard writing the prologue. But I hope it really conveys what I wanted to.
I am really excited about all your comments. Tune in for the first chapter.
Goodbye for now ;)
