Amber_18's "A Walk To Remember" Fan Fiction

"The Moment That I Saw You Cry"

"Hey handsome," Jamie breathed as I came in room. I had my arm behind my back as I came in the room. She was looking worse. Her skin was pale and she had lost thirty pounds since our wedding day. She was slender to begin with, so her light blue pajamas hung from her body and her wedding ring slid off her finger without any force. Her eyes were red and her brown hair was braided on the pillow. She smiled as I came near her and kissed her on her forehead. Her skin still smelt like fresh cream.

"I got you something," I said as I pulled a white rose from behind my back. She didn't smile very big, but the room still brightened. Her eyes scrunched like they always did. My heart felt joyous every time she smiled.

Thank you, baby," Jamie said as she slightly raised her hand to take the flower. It took her a few seconds to grasp it and she brought it to her face to smell it. I sat next to her and intertwined my fingers with hers. She squeezed it slightly and looked at me with her brown eyes. Her big brown eyes.

"How are you feeling today?" I asked. She pulled her lips together and opened her mouth to speak. She took a little breath and starts to answer my question.

"I love you," She said and then a tear slid from her eye. "I thank God every second that you found me."

A large lump formed in my throat and I tried to swallow but I couldn't. My eyes started to fill up with tears and I looked away. She didn't need to see me cry. I put my left hand up to my face and tried to take a big breath. But they still came, still slipped down my cheeks.

"You can cry, Landon. It's alright," Jamie said as she rubbed my hand and turned her head.

All I could do was cry. I cried until my eyes couldn't move because they were so swollen and dry. My face was probably so red by the time I finished and I couldn't breathe because I was crying so hard.

"I love you, even if you cry," Jamie said slowly as I was calming down. "You don't need to be tough, baby."

"I'm going to lose you," I said, wiping my face.

"I'm going to be watching over you, every minute every second," Jamie said as she smiled.

"I need you here with me," I said.

"I will be with you," Jamie said as her breath started to go slowly. "I just can't hold you and tell you I love you. I'll be with the wind. You won't see me but you'll feel me. And you'll see me again, I'm sure of it."

I didn't say anything, but tried to calm down. I took my hand from my face and rubbed her little hand in mine. By the time, I was breathing normally I look toward her and she was smiling and breathing slowly. Then her lips started to move and the sound coming out of them was slow but beautiful, like a flute in perfect pitch.

"I know now you're my only hope...." She couldn't finish the song, but fell asleep while I was holding her hand. I heard her breath and her chest rose and fell rapidly. I laid my head on her bed and although I had calmed down, I started to cry again.
