I walked around the airport desperately trying to find her. I haven't seen her in 3 years. I did have a few breaks here and there but this time I actually get to stay. Forever. The last time I heard from her she said she had a surprise for me. Then I spotted her. A petite half Asian young woman in a sundress and flats. But it was what was attached to her hip that surprised me more than the dress. A little girl had to be at least 5 or 6 months. She had on a little red t-shirt and jeans on. Her brown hair in little pigtails with matching red bows. On her feet were little black boots. I watched as my wife began to tickle her. I stopped right in front of them as the little girl began pulling on her peacock earring. "Ramona! Seriously? I will make you an earring just like mine if you promise me not to do that again." Stella said to her even though Ramona already lost all interest in the earring. I sat my bag down just as Stella put Ramona down and held her hand. I smiled as Stella recognized who was standing in front of her. She bent back down to Ramona and pointed to me and said the most extraordinary words to make me love her more than I already do. "Look Ramona! Daddy's home."
"Da-da?" She just said da-da. My daughter. MY daughter. I'm a dad. And she just said da-da. I walked closer and picked up Ramona.
"Kiss daddy." Stella said to her. Ramona shyly kissed my cheek.
"Turn…mommy." Ramona said to Stella. I looked at her and smiled.
"Yeah mommy." I mimicked our daughter. She just laughed as she threw her arms around my neck and kissed my lips. I didn't even realize a crowd had formed. Clapping and whistling, it didn't matter for I was back in the arms of my wife and now daughter. "Question Authority?" I asked Stella while looking at my beautiful daughter's shirt. Stella just laughed. "Charlie!" Someone else shouted. "Charlie!"
I slowly opened my eyes and I see everyone around me. "Charlie, please don't go." She said.
"Don't go? I am right here. I am looking right at you." I say to her. But it seems that she can't hear me. I see my friends try to pull her away but she won't budge from my side.
"I got her. You guys go ahead and go home." I heard Ray say. The others gave her a hug, him a pat on the back, wiping their tears as they saw me and left the room.
"What happened to me?" I ask but they didn't hear me. She just held onto my hand tighter. Why can I hear everything they are saying, but they can't hear me?
"Stella." Ray said gently. She didn't move. He walked closer to her and put a hand on her back. "Stella please look at me." He begged with a little hurt in his voice. She kissed my hand but didn't let go and turned her head towards him. That's when I saw it. Something I didn't ever want to see but I knew it'd happen one day if I was ever gone. But I am not gone I am right here. He loves her. He's probably even told her too. Her eyes say she wants to love him but she can't because she loves me. I have to let her go. I have to go. "Stella he is going to be fine." He told her. She shook her head vigorously.
"No. Ray it's not going to be fine." She said to him her anger slowly rising. "He is in a coma!" A Coma? "Yeah he could wake up but he probably won't remember who I am! Or worse he could die." She finished in tears. He quickly wrapped his arms around her. I felt her hand leave mine and wrap around his body into a hug. That's the first time I realized I could feel her. I tried to reach out to her again but I was just too weak.
"Stella, you don't think I know that?" He lifted her face to him. He wanting her to love him back. She stares at him hoping the next thing he says won't offend her. "But I know his love for you is so strong that he will pull through this for you." He wiped her the droplets falling freely from her face.
"You really think so?" She barely choked out. He looked back at me then to her and smiled.
"I know so." He kissed her forehead and hugged her tightly. "Now go tell him that you will be back in the morning." She chuckled slightly. Even though it was small hearing it actually made my heart beats speed up. He walked away from her heading to the door. She noticed he wasn't near her and she turned her head towards him.
"Where are you going?" She asked as if he was leaving her forever. He stopped and turned around.
"I'll be right outside the door I promise. I will get you in three." He told her. She nodded sadly but laced her hand with mine as he walked out and waited by the door. She sat quietly before speaking. Oh how much I want to hold her.
"Please don't go." She pleaded. "I know I should be the strong Stella you loved and married but I can't. Not until I know you are ok." She squeezed my hand tightly as tear fell. She began speaking again when I felt a burning sensation flow through my body leading to my hand she was holding. I didn't know what was going on but judging her expression is what enough to let her know that I was ok. "Y-You just squeezed my hand." She smiled as she wiped more tears away. And just like before another burning sensation but this time to my head. I was nodding for her. "C-Can you open your eyes for me? I need to see your beautiful brown eyes." She asked almost pleading. It was then I realized that I was could hear and imagine their expressions but my eyes weren't truly open.
One of the most simplest things you could do is one of the most difficult. But just as I was about to open them for her Ray came back in. "C'mon Stell. Time to go." He said with a cocked eyebrow. "Why are you happy?"
"Because he responded twice." She said looking back at me. I could tell he didn't believe her. "Do it again" She said to me. But I couldn't. I was too weak. He walked over to where she was sitting near me and he watched me closely.
"Come on Stella you need some rest." Ray said taking her hand and pulling her away towards the door. "Olivia has some fruit and water for you to eat." She frowned slightly but nodded as she left the room. Those burning sensations were finally done through the parts of my body I hadn't used. I could actually move my toes. Ray was about to turn to leave when I grabbed his hand. I slightly opened my eyes and noticed he was frightened.
"Take." I attempted to say. My voice raspy and hoarse. His expression softened as he leaned in closer to hear what I had to say. "Take…good care of her."
"What? Charlie no you can pull through this." He said almost begging. Which is weird because it's Ray Beech. I shook my head slightly for he wasn't getting my point.
"Y-You love her." I said to him shaky and unsteady. "I can feel it." I paused to moan in pain. "She loves you. I know she does." He quickly shook his head.
"Charlie, she loves you! Don't let me get her so you-" He said attempting to walk again. But I pulled on his arm.
"No." I said as I cleared my throat. He turned around looking frightened once again. "I can make it to tomorrow morning." I moaned as more pain flooded through me. "But grab her and never let her go." Just as I said that Stella walked back in her smile faltering as she saw his facial expression. Then in a flash the monitors were going off and I instantly felt stella at my side. Nurses rushing in pushing Ray out. I looked at Stella the best I could and whispered. "I love you Elle." Tears built up in her eyes.
"No. No. No. Don't go." She said as I put a hand on her face. A nurse came and picked up Stella. Stella protested against her. "No I am his wife!" She yelled.
"I understand that ma'am but we need you to stand aside please." The nurse told her dragging stella slowly out of the door.
"NO!" Stella shouted breaking free from her grasp. She pushed passed the other nurses and leaned down and kissed me. I immediately kissed her back though it wasn't long. This time Ray pulled her back. Apparently that nurse was going to call security. "I love you Charlie." She shouted to me before going through the door. I mouthed it back to her once last time as the door shut and nurses came swarming at my side. I couldn't hear anything anymore. I closed my eyes just to see hers again. I could still feel her lips upon mine. The nurses and doctors plugging and unplugging machines. Giving me new IV's and pricking my arms and fingers. But I don't feel a thing. All I know is I am drifting and I don't think I am coming back.
