Hello everyone, and welcome to the most depressing story you will ever read! So I'm new to this fandom, but hopefully you all will enjoy, and please review! Thanks!
He was gone. He's been gone for some time now. And I miss him. He was my best friend. He was my dad. I loved so much, but I had treated him like a jerk, when it should've been him doing that to me. I was the jerk, not him. He went out of his way to make sure I was always happy, always well feed and rested, that I never needed anything. And how did I repay his kindness? With hatred and anger.
And now it's over. All that love was gone, and I was empty. I had no more tears to cry, no more love to give. I can't even bare to think of all the things I did to him. How I ignored his calls, found friends to hang out with on the holidays that had always been him and me, I even didn't invite him to my wedding. Though I should've. Because the next day I got a call from the hospital, asking if this was a relative of Goof. When I said yes, I was leaving Roxanne in an airport, driving as fast as I could.
My dad had had a heart attack. No one knew why, but he wasn't going to recover. So I was praying that he was still alive when I got there. Thankfully he was, but just barely. I knew that if I wasn't quick though, he wouldn't be.
The receptionist at the desk saw me and told me which room to go to. I guess my panicked face and mood made her know something was up, skipping the four other visitors. After that I rushed up six floors of stairs, barely making it up the seventh. I had three more to go and decided to use the elevator.
I was a floor away when it stopped. And tons of people got on, pushing me off. I turned back to the stairs, when I heard over the intercom people being called to my dad's room, to help remove life support. I don't even remember going up that last flight of stairs, or navigating the hall ways. I only remember pushing past three or four nurses, and stopping them from taking my dad.
"No! You can't do this! He will get better. He the strongest person I know!" I shouted, confusing them all.
One nurse stepped up. "Sir, I need to ask you to leave." he said.
"No." I answered. "I'm not leaving my father."
"Oh... Are you Maximillion Goof? Goofy Goof's son?"
I nodded, not able to speak. They all filed out, saying I had twenty minutes. I turned to my dad and my lip trembled. He was breathing and his eyelids fluttered.
"Ma, Maxie?" he asked weakly.
I smiled softly. "Yeah. It's me dad. It's me."
"Of course I did dad. You would do the same for me. I love you daddy." a tear trickled down my face, falling on my dad's.
It had been a long time since I called him that, and I think that was what he was waiting for. For me to say those four simple words. He wanted to know that I loved him. I always knew he had loved me, but never made it clear to him. And now I regretted it forever.
"l love you too son." his breathing kept getting shallower and I was getting more nervous.
He looked at me weakly. "For what Max?"
"That, that," I stuttered over the words, before they came out like a rush of water. "That it took me so long to admit that I love you. You were always there for me. And I couldn't even take the time to return a phone call. And now you're dying and I can't fix this. This is all my fault, and I never deserved to have a father that was as great as you were. I never deserved any of the time and love you poured into me. And I'm sorry that I wasted your time. I understand if you hate me."
"Hate you? I would never hate you Max. You're my son, my flesh and blood. We all make mistakes sometimes. All that matters is that we fix them. And you just did. I love you so much son. And I forgive you." he whispered, before passing peacefully, taking one last breath.
"I love you too daddy. I love you too." I cried.
I watched as they took out life support, even though he was already gone. How many times did I wish for him to be out of my life? How many times had I yelled at him him the words I hate you? And now he was gone. He was gone forever and I had no reason to be happy. None at all. He was finally out of my life and it was all my fault.
I flopped down on the chair next to my dad's lifeless body and cried. I just cried.
So yah... If by some random chance you have read my other stories you may have noticed they can be extremely sad and/or depressing. Well hope you enjoyed! Please review and look out for the next chapter!
