"Did he say anything after you two went and looked at rings? ... Like hinted on it?" Her mother ask.
"No... Not that I remember..."Elizabeth says while placing the ring back into it's box.
"Why not wear it?" She asks Elizabeth. "I know it's too soon and probably hurts to think about it.. but it's a nice memory of him you can keep close near you.."
Her mother says while placing a bowl of soup in front of her and taking a seat at the table.
"It'll just be a reminder that he's not here and now that day that I dreamed of saying "I do" with him will never happen mom." ELizabeth said while mindlessly stiring her soup around in the bowl... After awhile and half of the bowl of soup was gone she finally got up and started to do the dishes. When instantly her mother is beside her pulling her away from the sink and into her bedroom.
"Rest my dear you have a lot on your mind. I'll do the dishes, while I wait on your dad to come pick me up. We'll be back in the morning to make sure you are dressed and ready" Her mother says while heading back towards the kitchen.
It felt like Elizabeth had only gotten about an hour of sleep when her alarm started to go off. Shutting it off she groggily got up and went into the bathroom to get ready for the day. After washing her face, brushing her teeth, combing her hair, and putting make-up on Elizabeth stood in front of her bathroom door, trying to force herself to put on the litlle black dress, she was dying not to wear. Finally forcing herself to put the dress on she finished getting ready, grabbing her black high heels and gloves, Elizabeth went and sat on her couch waiting for her parents to arrive.
It felt like an hour had went by but only fifteen minutes had when she heard knocking on her door. Getting up and opening the front door her mother hurrys in.
"Good your dressed!"Her mom says whille instantly heading to the coat rack and grabbing lizzies coat. In the mean time Elizabeth had managed to get her shoes and gloves on before her mother started helping her with her coat.
"Mom! I'm not a baby any more!" Elizabeth exclaimed.
And with that her mother dropped what she was doing and just stood there while Elizabeth put her coat on.
"I'm sorry mom... I didn't mean to snap."Elizabeth says but it came out in more of a whisper.
"Oh sweet heart it's okay! But we have to get going!" Her mother says while engolfing her in a half hug and starting to walk out the door.
The funeral felt like it was never ending, if they really knew the truth that all Elizabeth wanted to do was get out of this dress and crawl into a her blanket, they'd all be disappointed with her. But people deal with tradgedies differently, so who are they to judge on what she'd rather be doing. When they day was finally over with she was happy to be back in her apartment and under blanket. She didn't even bother putting pj's on just stripped off the dress and crawled in.
Elizabeth was given three days off of work to recouperate and get her bearings together. she had spent a whole day in bed watching sad movies and calling Garrett's phone over and over again. When all of a sudden her sister and mother come waltzing into her room demanding that she take a shower and actually get dressed.
Elizabeth finally agreed to taking a shower.. it was the easiest way for them to stop hounding her... because apparently if she didn't do it on her own, she was going to be forced too. After taking a shower and drying her hair Elizabeth walked into her bedroom, to see that set of clothes were laid out to be put on.
"Thanks, Lucy for putting my clothes out for me... I appreciate it." She said while sitting next to her sister on the couch.
"No problem." Lucy says while pulling her sister into a half hug and instantly Elizabeth starts to cry. "Shoo shooo" Lucy says while smoothing Elizabeth's hair. After going back an fourth of sobbing and trying to suck in air to breathe, Elizabeth finally caved into sleep, and awoke to have fallen asleep on Lucy's lead to Lucy to fall asleep, looking around she realizes that her mother had also fallen asleep. Grabbing blankets and placing it on them. Elizabeth once again went into her bedroom and stripped off her t-shirt and shorts before crawling into bed.
One month turned to six months and then six months turned into a year. Elizabeth never thought she'd see a year without Garrett, but some how she managed to do so. It wasn't easy at first, but she gradgually got use to it. Specially with the help of her family, she still kept in touch with Garrett's family every now and then. And she had graduated from college to become an RN, and was starting a new job very soon in the ER. All was going well untill the day she met Billy Darley.
