"Crap, I have to get going." Vee said looking at the clock on the wall. It was almost midnight. "I have to finish packing and leave for my plane in a couple hours."
Vee stood up slowly, still holding Angelina. Shockingly she leaned over to Patch and slipped Angelina into his arms. I stood up as Vee leaned away from Angelina and Patch. Tears started to form in both of our eyes.
She was leaving for collage in England. After Scott had passed walking about town just felt so lonely. Countless times we were out she would scream his name after swearing she had seen him smile at her in a crowd.
"I'm going to miss you so much." I said hugging her tightly around the neck. She squeezed me tightly around my waist. "What am I going to do when I need my best friend?"
Vee pulled slightly away from me. "There's still the phone and facetime." She knew as well as I did that it wasn't going to be the same.
I wasn't going to have my best friend pulling me around making me do ridiculous things. Looking back at high school and all the things she dragged me too, I don't regret any of it, in fact I was thankful for her doing it all.
Vee turned around to walk to the front door, grasping my hand as we walked. Patch rose gracefully off the couch, Angelina still fast asleep in his arms.
Vee slid on her jacket opening the door. She stared to walk out but turned around quickly grabbing for one last hug. I was going to miss her so much; I didn't think I would be able to bare not having her around. She pulled away, a sadness creeping into her eyes.
Her eyes glanced at Patch. I saw the faintest smile form on her lips as she reached around me softly hugging Patch goodbye. Patch gave a small smile as she turned around and walked out the door.
Patch stood behind me resting his head on mine as I stood in the open doorway watching Vee get in her car. As she pulled out of the driveway she smiled, waving goodbye. I stood at the door till her car was no longer visible.
"Come on, let's get this little Angel into bed and then get you to bed." Patch said pulling me away from the door and closing it. I let out a little sigh as we slowly walked up the staircase to the bed room.
Patch had a house on a secluded beach, and thought it was best for the first few weeks to stay with my mother, she didn't object to that thought. So Angelina had the crib, which I once used, in my old bedroom for the time being.
My bedroom was dark and a bit cold. Patch silently walked to the crib placing her in it. I laid down on the bed watching him.
He stood over her crib just staring at her. I watched as he softly stroked her check with a single finger. Her lips slowly moved into a little smile at his touch. Patch let out a little sigh as he smiled and stood back up.
He glided into bed, lying on his back. I snuggled up onto his chest, his arm wrapping around my body. I felt so safe, for once I felt like everything was perfect. He kissed the top of my head ever so gently, making a small smile escape from my lips as I softly drifted off to sleep in Patch's arms.
