Boy: Hey, can I tell you something?
Girl: Yeah, of course.
Boy: I… I love you.
Boy: What’s wrong?
Girl: I can’t tell you. I’m sorry.
Boy: Are you sure?
Girl: Why do you love me?
Boy: Because you’re the sweetest girl I’ve ever met, you can make me laugh, and you’re beautiful both inside and out.
Girl: I… Thank you. I just wish you could know… But I can’t. I’m sorry.
Boy: It’s okay, you can tell me when you’re ready.
Girl: I have to go.
Boy: See you later beautiful.
*Later that night the boy gets a call from one of his friends*
Friend: Did you hear?
Boy: What are you talking about?
*Friend explains that the girl took pills earlier that night, and she was in a coma in the hospital. The boy realizes this meant she’d taken the pills before he’d talked to her*
Boy: Oh my god… I should’ve told her sooner.
Friend: What are you talking about?
Boy: It doesn’t matter, I have to go.
*The boy drives to the hospital to go see the girl. At first they tell him he probably shouldn’t go in, but he says he needs to, and it’ll only be a few minutes*
Boy: Why didn’t I tell you sooner…
Boy: I know you’ll wake up. You’re stronger than anyone thinks. They say people in comas can hear things… So I’ll talk to you until you wake up.
Boy: I don’t have much time now though. Remember I love you.
*The next day the boy goes and talks to her. He tells her everything that happened during the day and again, tells her he loves her and she’s the most amazing girl in the world. He continues this for three weeks until one day he shows up to find something unexpected*
Boy: Hey beautiful. *squeezes her hand*
Girl *squeezes hand back*
Boy: *stares with an astonished look while a nurse walks in*
Nurse: What’s wrong?
Boy: She squeezed my hand.
Nurse: Are you sure?
Boy: I’m positive!
Nurse: I think it’s time you go home. We’ll call you if she’s awake, I promise.
*Boy reluctantly goes home. He goes back to the hospital for a few days after that, but they keep telling him he can’t see the girl. Finally, he gets a call from the nurse at the hospital he’d spoken to before*
Nurse: Technically she’s not allowed visitors besides her family yet, but her parents say it’s alright if you come.
Boy: *drives right away to the hospital to see the girl*
Nurse: *leads him to the room and leaves him sitting next to her bed*
Girl: *eyes flutter open*
Boy: Beautiful as always.
Girl: I remember you. I can’t remember everything, but I remember you.
Boy: I spoke to you every day.
Girl: I heard you. I wanted to respond but I couldn’t.
Boy: I knew you’d wake up.
Girl: I can hardly even walk. And look at these needles stuck in my arm. They hurt. *motions to IV*
Boy: I wish I could take away the pain, but you’ll have them off soon enough. They’re helping you. And you’ll be up and moving soon enough. *smiles*
Girl: There was something I really wanted to say, every day before you left.
Boy: What is it?
Girl: I love you too.
