That One Guy - Chapter 25

Hey guys! New Chapter!
"Sam, I'm sorry," Alex said in tears. I sat there sniffing while more tears left my eyes. Alex then walked a few small steps before sitting on the bed next to me. He put his arms around me and pulled me in close, I felt the warmth from his body going through mine. I put leaned my head between his head and his shoulder as we sat there sobbing our way into the next day.


"Hey," Mitchell smiled as he walked in.
"Hey," I gave him a small forced smile.
"How yah feeling?" He asked as he sat on the chair next to the bed.

"Fine," I sighed.

Then there was a silence between us as Mitchell looked around the room.

"Err... where's Jed and Emmalyn?" I asked trying to think of something to talk about.
"You haven't heard have you?"
"Heard about what?" I asked slowly.
"Bryant broke up with Emmalyn."
"He did what?!" I looked at him as I raised my eyebrows.
"Yep, Emmalyn's at home probably crying and Jed is with her."
"Oh my gosh. What happened?"
"I'm not too sure but what I heard was that Bryant only wanted sex from her."
"Ugh, that shallow jerk." I huffed angrily as I folded my arms. "Poor Em, she must be so upset."

"Huh, she is, very. The only time she leaves the room is to get tissues and ice cream."
"Ice cream?" I looked at him shocked, Emmalyn never eats ice cream, she's always talking about how it would ruin your figure and you would be eating so many calories.

"Yup." He said dragging the 'u' sound and popping 'p'.
"Well whatever he did, h-" I stopped, I felt something rush through my body.

I quickly grabbed the small bucket next to my bed for when I vomit. I wrapped both palms on the sides of the bucket and started to vomited, unable to stop.

"Oh shit, Sam." I heard Mitchell say as he quickly rushed to me.

After about another 10 seconds the vomiting finally stopped, Mitchell lifted the bucket away from me and put it aside. I slowly lifted the covers and dragged my feet off the bed and let it dangle off the side of the bed for a while before pushing myself off the bed into a hunched position but I was still standing. I gripped the portable drug drip for the chemo for balance.

"Sam, are you sure you can do this?" Mitchell asked as he ran towards me.

I nodded in a slowly and short movement, I took slow and small steps towards the bathroom dragging the drip with me with Mitchell walking along with me observing my every more. I walked into the bathroom and grabbed a plastic cup and filled it with water. I gargled the water in my mouth and then spat it out, and repeated this. I then threw the cup away before turning on the tap. I put my hands under the tap and splashed water onto my face. I then grabbed a towel that was sitting on the shelf on the left hand side wall and dried my hands and face.

I sighed and shook my head, I felt so weak and tired. I wanted to collapse; I took a few deep breaths before I stumbled back to my bed.


*3 Months Later*

April has come around and so has spring. I was allowed home in the beginning of last month with regular checkups. My hair has just started to grow; it really did take me a while to gather that I was bald. My long brown hair was just gone and it would take me about 2 years to grow it back not that I do have 2 years though. Even though my hair was growing back, I didn't get stronger. I got a little weaker but I was still strong enough to enjoy the last few months. I usually went out with Alex since he doesn't go to school much anymore. I had tried to persuade him to go back, but he had always replied that he wanted to spend as much time with me as he could. We did really enjoy the past month a lot though, we went practically everywhere fun this town could offer. We went to carnivals, fairs, movies, concerts and I enjoyed every minute I had with him because soon I would have any with him.

My favorite time was one night on a Friday, Alex had taken me out to dinner not in a restaurant but outdoors on a hill and he made a picnic dinner for us both. There were candles lighting the surroundings, and we sat under this giant oak tree and watched the sunset. He even craved our names in a heart on the tree. It was literally the best night of my life. But not only have we found love, Jed and Emmalyn had finally found each other and have been going out for 2 and a half months now and Mitchell goes out with a girl in his English Literature class. I've seen photos of her; she's one really pretty girl with blue eyes and long completely straight brown hair.

Yesterday, I had another check-up, they said I could continue more treatments but it wouldn't cure it, it would only slow down the tumor a little more. I said no, even though Alex was there trying to persuade me to do the treatments and brought up a promise that I had made around 3 months ago but I ignored him. I didn't want to live the last probably 10 weeks of my life being drugged and unable to go out, I wanted to go out as much as I can and enjoy the time I have left.

Also I didn't want to be in hospital today because, today's the big day. Martha's finally got her wedding organized in time. The past week has been hectic with dresses, flowers, make up menus and so much more. I don't know how they did it but they did. I'm happy today for Martha and Ben.
