Chapter One: Abbrielle
As the monitor’s last peak fell and the red line plateaued across the screen screaming the last “beep” into the air, drowning all the sounds from the room, I felt the blood rush from my face. The only image I could see was my father lying gently on the hospital bed in front of me. Though he looked like he was only bones, I still thought he looked angelic. He was now dead, and I still couldn’t bear to leave his side, as if I was anchored to the hospital chair next to him. My only true best friend was now officially gone out of my life and all that was left was his body before me.
“Abby, we need to leave honey. It’s been fifteen minutes and they need to move the body.”
Snapping back into reality, I looked up to see my dad’s best friend Bill. He was such a nice man who was almost always happy, but I could tell from his face that he was completely distraught. When Bill found out that my dad had cancer, he would not leave his side for any circumstance, unless it was to take care of me or make sure I had everything I needed.
“Abby, sweetie we really need to leave. There are necessary things we need to do and get ready for,” Bill said kindly, but I could hear the tears in his voice.
I turned back around and looked at my dad.
“I just need like ten more minutes with him. That’s all. Just ten minutes, please?” I said while trying to swallow down the sadness that swelled in my throat.
“Okay, I’ll go talk to the doctors and give you a little bit more time. I’ll meet you in the lobby in about fifteen. Okay?”
