All day he didn’t stop. He didn’t take time to eat, or rest, or catch his breath. He thought that if he kept moving, so would everything else. He didn’t stop because if he stopped then maybe what he had been told was really true, because if he stopped he’d have to believe.
Finally he got there around midnight. It was too late.
The doctor said, “She’s in a better place. She said to give you this note, just in case.”
Fighting back tears he opened the letter. It said; “I’ll wait for you at Heaven’s gate. I don’t care how long it takes. I’ll tell whoever questions me that I can’t come in without my love and my best friend. Oh, this aint nothing new. Sweetheart, I’ll wait for you. PS. I love you too.”
