I hung up and ran to my car. When I got to the hospital I discovered how weak she was. How didn’t I notice?
“Why didn’t you tell me? Why did you hide it from me?” I whispered.
She looked at me and a weak smile came to her pale lips.
“Do you remember when I said that I didn’t want you to suffer another loss? Well I really meant that. I just wanted to spend my last few months with you happily. ”
“You can’t leave.” I said
“The cancer is killing me… I…”
“Don’t…” I interrupted
“I want you to be happy. Somehow I will always be by your side. Never forget that. I love you” She breathed.
“I love you too Ella…” I kissed her forehead.
I sat by her side all night and held her hand. By the time morning came Ella had passed on.
