Author's Note: So this is the prequel to And Life Goes On. I wrote this a while ago and finally decided to put it up. Let me know what you think.
Disclaimer: I don't own Degrassi, but i do own the OCs: Kara, Andy, Jake, and Mikayla Torres.
I walked out to my car, brief case in hand. I was on the phone with Andy, my oldest son. We've only been talking for a minute. Andy was going through the stage in his teenage years where he pulled away from his parents. I understood. I was the same way when I was his age. Maybe when I get home, we can talk more.
"Okay, I love you," I said into the phone.
"Okay. See you at home," Andy said before hanging up. I slipped my BlackBerry into my jacket pocket and continued walking.
When I got to my car, I unlocked it and got in. I started on my drive home, thinking about my wife, Mikayla. She's been battling with cancer for years. The doctors said she didn't have much time left. That's what broke my heart the most, having to see her everyday knowing I'm going to be losing her soon. I love her more than anything. I don't know how I'll function without her. The kids, Jake, Kara, and Andy, know that their mother is going to die in a few weeks. They've all started to accept that fact. I promised them that I'd be there for them, forever. No matter what. I'm not going anywhere. They can always rely on me.
I merged into the highway effortlessly. The roads were pretty clear. It's about 7pm. I told the kids I'd be coming home late tonight, since I had a lot of work to do. Mikayla was out of the hospital so she was with them. I couldn't wait to get home and be with my family. I wanted to cherish the last few weeks of Mikayla's life.
The sky turned dark as it suddenly started to rain. It was an intense fit of rain. I didn't mind driving in these conditions, but it slowed me down. I just wanted to hurry home. All of a sudden I saw a bright yellow light about 100 feet in front of me. I tried to focus on it through my blurry windshield. I made out a huge figure barreling towards me. A Van. I tried to swerve but I was too late.
This is very short, but there is more too come. The next chapter is longer. I promise!
