(Lindsey)

I touched Nathan’s face and gently smiled as I watch him lying right beside me on the rooftop. God, how I love this man. I love him not just because he’s handsome and smart but the way he touches someone’s life without even knowing it. The way he makes me smile with his silly jokes or even just the way he makes my heart beat so fast just by staring at me. I can’t believe that tomorrow, I will be marrying this man. The man who will hold my heart and soul, always and forever. That night, he brought me inside his room and through his window we climbed out to the rooftop. He brought a blanket and together, we lie and watch the stars. It is so romantic. That’s one of the things I loved about him. He can be very romantic in simple ways. We talk for several hours and then he brought me home to have a goodnight sleep.
” Tomorrow‘s going to be our special day. Have a good night Lindz.” He kissed me on the cheeks and walk to his motorcycle.
“Hey!” I called up to him. He turned and gives me once again his breath-taking smile.” I love you….always” and I move to kiss him on the cheeks.
“And forever” he said and hold me in his arms.

I woke up very early that day. I am so excited but a little nervous. Nathan and I were going to be husband and wife. I smiled as I look at the mirror in my room. I am about to finish combing my hair when I heard a knock on my door. It was my mother.
“Nathan’s mother wants to talk to you.” She said and immediately handed me the phone.
“Hello?”
“Lindsey? ….uhm… Nathan’s in the hospital. He had an accident and it’s very serious. Please come over as fast as you can…” I heard little sobs across the line” He needs you..” and she continued it in a whisper I can barely hear.

I rushed immediately at the hospital. I moved so fast that I haven’t even answered my mom when she asked what that call was all about. I saw his mother outside the recovery room. She was crying and when she saw me, she moved and hugged me.
“I’m so sorry Lindsey. This is supposed to be a special day for both of you” she said. I hugged her and cried. I can’t say a word and I can’t even manage to think. My mind was occupied by the thoughts of him. How will I ever live without him?
After several hours in recovery room, Nathan was brought to a private room. I stayed by his side all day. I cried and cried as I look at him. His mother was also there. She told me how excited Nathan was that morning. Well, it’s really amazing how things can change with just a blink of an eye.
“Why don’t you go home and rest for the mean time.” His mother told me.” I’ll call you immediately if there are any changes. You seemed so tired, Lindsey.”
“ I’m okay. I’ll just stay here with him Mrs. Santos.” I said but later she insists, and so I went home.
My mother was waiting for me in the living room. ”How was Nathan?” she asked.
I sat beside her and hugged her. “He is still unconscious mom” I said then tears were rolling down my face.
“Everything will be alright honey. Just have a little faith. He’ll be okay.”

On the next day I was surprised that the room was empty. I saw a nurse and I asked, “Miss, where is the patient in this room? Was he transferred to other room?”
“Oh, you mean Mr. Santos? No, his parents moved him out last night. What I heard was that his parents are going to take him to New York because of his condition. I’m so sorry miss.” And then she walks away.

Those months that followed were the hardest days of my life. I just learned from their neighbors that they had gone to New York early that morning. It was so hard for me. I can’t seem to move on. I cried so many nights. I shed so many tears. I almost thought of killing myself to end the pain.
But then, wounds heal. They always leave scars but they heal. It was almost a year until the day I stopped crying. I started applying for work and find myself again. I made friends and started going out with them. I became happy again.

“Can I share with you?”
I looked up and saw a handsome man smiling at me across the table.”Of course.” I said and smiled back at him.
He is David…..
