Chapter 3

January 2nd 2013

I woke with a stiff back and neck. I slid my eyes open and blinked a few times, it was still dark outside and I could feel Anna's weight against my side. I looked down at her and gave her a gentle squeeze before detaching myself from her and lying her down on the bed, I got out from the bed and pulled the cover up to her shoulders to keep off the slight chill that had entered the room. I paused, my hand resting above her heart. A sick feeling grew in my stomach. I quickly leaned over and put my ear by her nose to see if I could hear her breathing. This time I didn't hold back my tears.

I sank to the floor and wept, the pain of losing my best friend all over again was too much to bear. I felt a tightening in my chest and I grasped at the bed sheet, not able to breathe steadily. I rested my head on the side of the bed and looked at the small stand by the bed, there was a picture of Anna and me at her sixteenth birthday party. I smiled and reached up for it and as I pulled it down towards me a folded piece of paper fluttered to the floor. I frowned and picked it up. Messy scrawl that was Anna's writing covered the paper. I held it in shaking hands as I read and reread the letter over and over.

Krystal, thank you for being here. Thank you for not leaving me alone. You're the best friend anyone could wish for and I'm so happy that I got the honor of being your friend. You're an amazing person and I wouldn't be half as strong if it weren't for you. So thank you. I hope these words are enough to repay you for everything you've done for me. Every tear you've caught, every laugh you heard, every time I needed you, you were there for me. I just wish that I could be there for you.

I would tell you not to cry, but I think that would be selfish of me because I know that you need to cry to be able to let go of your feelings. So cry! Cry as much as you want and let it all out. You will always be in my heart and I will love you forever.

Thank you.

I crushed the letter to my heart and bent over, huge sobs racking my chest. I was finally able to let go of all the grief I'd felt for the whole year and realise that the last moments I'd had with Anna were the best gift I could ever receive. Because she was not alone. We were not alone and will always be in each other's hearts.
