Today was moving day Sky waits at their new home that they have just brought together, while Shane heads back to both their parents house’s to collect their stuff, Sky spends the time in doors, setting up stuff they had went out and brought the week before, she had the radio on full blast dancing around the kitchen, she jumps when she feels arms lace around her.
“Hey baby”, she turns to face Shane, he smiles down at her “Having fun?"
She laughs “of course, I’m marrying my best friend and man of my dreams, we finally got something to call ours, everything is perfect”, he leans down kissing her slowly.
“Damn straight baby”, she smiles against his lips,
“I love you” She looks up at him
“I love you too baby, how about a takeaway tonight, after we got everything sorted”, she nods.
The rest of the day they spend setting up their home and soon enough they are curled up on the sofa eating take out and just being happy and content in their little bubble. Sky looks up at him smiling,
he looks over “what's up”, she smiles
“nothing I am just happy, not to mention we are getting married in a couple of months!!" he grins
“It can not come quick enough, Mrs Bostin”, he pulls her in to him kissing her and then takes her to bed.
A week before the wedding, Sky wakes up, Shane had already gone to work, her door bell goes and she heads down answering its her older sister Aria, with her wedding dress in hand, Aria and Sky head up stairs so she can try it on,
Aria wells up
“Sis you look beautiful!!!, Shane won’t know what’s hit him!" Sky smiles over at her sister, then admires herself in the mirror, after A little while she puts it away and they head down stairs and have coffee together, the door bell goes again and Sky heads to the door, she opens it and two police officers stood there, alongside her parents and Shanes parents, she stands confused, as they ask to come in they all head in the kitchen Sky sits waiting, he parents and his surround her,
Sky starts to panic “What's going on!" the police start to talk,
“I'm very sorry Miss Delila, Mr Bostin was killed earlier on this morning in a hit a run”,
Sky collapse's on the floor screaming “NOOOOOOOOOOO”, her parents try to help her up she fights them off “NO GET OFF ME!!, I WANNA SEE HIM NOW!" the police explain that isn't\ the best idea, Sky just gets up and walks out, she just wanted to be with him.
Her world had just been torn apart, 8 years with an amazing man, who she was supposed to marrying next week and he was taken just like that. Her heart hurt and she just felt numb, why did it have to happen to her, them?, she walks the streets for hours, and then heads back home, she goes in to her room and locks her self in, finding his shirt she puts it on hugging herself on her bed cuddling to up to his pillow and photo of them together, and sobs and sobs until she falls in to a deep sleep.
The day of what was supposed to be her wedding day and happiest moment of her life, she was sat planning her fiancé’s funeral with his parents, she was broken, hurting, numb, confused, alone and scared.
Sky didn’t want a life without Shane he was her life, the love of her life, and they had the rest of their lives together instead she was planning his funeral and having to say goodbye. Her heart was shattered and hole had been punched through her and she wasn't sure it could ever be repaired.
Time goes slowly and the day of his funeral arrives, she hasn't eaten hardly slept and feels awful, she drags herself out of bed and slowly gets herself ready and everyone starts to arrive, she hardly says two words to anyone, and soon enough she watches as they lower him in to the ground, she watches just numb, as she looks up she see’s a guy standing near by watching it unfold, she isn't sure she had seen him before, she walks over to him, his got short blonde hair, dressed in a black suit he watches her like a deer caught in the headlights,
“Sorry can I help you?" the guy freezes, she looks up to him, he looks at her
“Sorry, I shouldn't of come!" she reaches out holding his arm
“Wait! who are you!"
He stops and turns, “just a old friend, is all”, she looks up at him
“Please stay, you don’t have to watch from over here, come back to the wake with us?" he looks at her not knowing what to do, after an inhale of breath he nods and heads back over with her,
“You were his fiancé right?" she lets her tears fall nodding
“Yeah, I....was...I’m Sky by the way”, he swallows a lump in his throat knowing exactly who she was, he was a little hurt she didn't remember him, but it was such a long time back...
“Sorry to meet under these circumstances, I am so sorry for you’re loss and I am Arthur”, she shakes her head. Once they finish it all wraps up and they head back to hers for the wake.
Once they get there they all head inside, Sky turns to Arthur, “Please help yourself to whatever you like and need, and thank you for coming today”
He musters a smile “thank you sky”, she nods and heads in side, but he leaves instantly, she spends the rest of the day with friends and family, celebrating the life of her Fiancé.
