The walls were so bleak. The voices were so distant. I only recognized one on the many voices. Delsin. He was crying. My eyes fluttered open as I gasped for air. “Sora!” He sobbed. I looked down at my crisp, hospital gown. “I’m here again” I tried to say but I only felt sharp pain. He handed me a pad of paper and pen. “What happened?” I wrote and handed it to him. “The plane was high jacked and you saved us all.” He marveled. “Really” My scribbled scrawl was hard to read I was so happy. “Ya, only you were shot in the throat. The doc was able to fix your vocal chords though. You got lucky there.” He laughed patting my head. I looked around my room. There were cards from the whole McMan family, Flowers from my Aunt, and random cards from people from the plane. I smiled at everything. “How long have I been here?” I scribbled. “a few weeks. I was starting to lose hope. You were having really fitful sleeps for the first week or so, but now you are back to normal” He recalled for me.
In came Westin, ruining our moment. “Delsin called and said you were waking up. Sora, it’s good to see you again!” She chirped as always I tried to laugh for her but had to settle with scribbling out “lol”. Even Kevin who I hadn’t seen in a long time, walked in. He was followed by Delsin’s parents, Abaster and McEnna. “Nice to see you all” I scribbled. Delsin took my pad from me. “This must be the one time in your life you have been silent.” Delsin teased.
I made a snarling face back at him. He laughed as he set my pad down and crawled next to me. “Sora, we missed you” Westin cooed. I nodded. “She missed you too” Delsin translated for me. I smiled and leaned against his shoulder. “You love me” He whispered and kissed my head. A hand went over my eyes gently. “Sora, sit up slowly. Please?” Westin coaxed. I sat up leaning over the end of my bed. The hand released my eyes. There was Delsin, a note in one hand and a velvet box in the other. This was a classic scene I knew what was going to happen. My eyes started to water. Westin clapped her hands together behind me. “Sora, ever since, well about a year ago, I had known you were special. Not only that you were a prophet who still had to fulfill her duty, but you were the one. The girl I knew I would love forever.” He explained. I started sobbing. Sharp pains erupted in my throat. “Normally I would have to ask you parent, but your father gave me this note.” He handed me the note. In my father’s neat scrawl was his permission for Delsin to marry me and a note to me. Sora, I must let you know how sorry I am that I let you down so many times. If my life were longer, I would try my hardest to make it up to you. I just want you to know, what ever you do, I will be there for you. I love you. Dad. I stared at his clean note, now soiled with my tears. “Sora, Will you marry me” Delsin finally said. I covered my eyes with my bloody hands. I nodded at him through the crusted blood and tears. He smiled a monstrous grin and lifted me up, yanking IVs out and what not. I screeched in delight even though it hurt. Westin helped him get me set back up. A nurse came in and glared at us all as she shoved my IVs back on and set the heart monitor back up.
Delsin lay down next to me and slid the ring on my finger. Although, we weren’t legally aloud to get married, He wanted to claim me. I fell asleep. No more in my boyfriends arms, but my fiancés arms. Soon my husbands arm. I closed my eyes savoring the moment. I was starting senior year in a few months and then getting married. Life was going great for me. Everything was going my way. I got he man of my dreams, the family everybody wants, the title of hero and prophet, and the security every girl wants. I have it all. I for my pad to scribble one thing I had never been able to say until now. “I love you”
