Author's Notes: Since I was so awful to you guys, didn't update for almost two months and had to resort to being harassed into updating, I'll be updating daily until the story is over. Within a week or two this story will be finito! And I will begin a new one, but you guys need to help me out with that! I want you guys to be the judges! Oh, and I am erasing my Twilight story. It was my first story for a reason... it sucks. It's completely uncreative and when I read it over today, I felt utterly ashamed. I wanted to slap myself for writing such tom-foolery crap. Sorry if some of you liked it, but it must be done for my sanity! Feedback, rates and banners por favor! Merci beaucoup! (See what I did there? Three languages! Hah!) ~~Alex

"You can't marry Adam."

I whirled around to find myself face to face with the one and only Hoe-Liana. I scoffed. "What are you talking about, hoe?"

It felt so good to finally just be plain out rude. Bridget be damned; I know it sounds mean, but I'm not gonna be all chip and dandy with Hoe-Liana just because Bridget said so. How did she get in, anyways? Ugh; Bridget must have given her a key.

She rolled her eyes in a bratty manner. "I'm saying you wouldn't dare; you're too nice."

"Oh, puh-lease; all niceness vanishes whenever you're within spittin' distance!"

She scoffed. "I think you want to see this. I'm not here to be rude, or fight. I just want to be happy for the little of my life that's left."

I tilted my head in confusion. What on earth is she talking about?

She handed me an envelope. I gave her an odd look before opening it. It read a shocking truth. On this little paper was the destruction of my happiness.

Juliana had leukemia, and had only about two years to live...

My hands started shaking and I nearly dropped the paper.

"Now do you see why I held onto Adam so hard? He was my only shot at happiness. I don't want to die without living my love for him. All I want is my happily ever after."

My eyes watered as I told her, "I'm so sorry. I had no idea, I-I-I swear I would not have kicked your butt had I known."

She gave me a small smile and said, "That's in the past; there's nothing we can do to change that. What I'm asking you is to leave Adam be. Let me have my happily ever after; please..."

And here she started to cry. I felt my spine melt and I knew I had no choice. How could I say no to that? I wasn't a cruel, heartless person.

"You don't have to give me Pattie, of course."

That was a relief. But I still could not believe I was about to give up my happiness, perhaps forever.

I tried to speak, but it came out as a shaky breath. "Okay. I'll leave Adam alone. I hope things turn out well for you."

She smiled happily, gave me a hug, and then walked out of my house just as soon as she had walked in.

***

I ran to my room after Juliana left. Bridget will be ecstatic when she finds out I'm leaving Adam. And she'll be heartbroken when she realized Juliana has leukemia. So heartbroken but happy that she won't even notice I left. I was meaningless to her, anyhow. I decided the only way to do this would be to run. It might be a foolish thing and I am most definitely making the absolute biggest mistake of my life, but that doesn't matter. I couldn't live with myself if I did that to Juliana. I might hate her, but I have a heart and it won't let me stay. I packed my bags hurriedly, and left immediately. Sierra and Kia would be back any minute. I left them all a note, and fled the house. I got into my car and stopped by at Adam's house quickly. Adam was there with Patrick, right outside the house.

I warily got out. This was my goodbye. The only one I'd get.

"Hey," I managed.

He smiled in a way he only did at me. It portrayed only love. My heart broke as I stood there.

He took me by the waist and kissed me passionately. I knew very well this was my last kiss with him, so I kissed him with all the intensity I could muster, not wanting to let go of him when the kiss ended.

"I love you," I told him, "never forget that, no matter what."

He smiled lovingly at me. "I could never. I love you with all of my heart."

Patrick laughed in the background, and said, "Ew, mommy and daddy are smooching!"

I laughed shakily. "Hey, do you mind if I take Pattie with me?"

Adam shook his head. "Of course not; his bag's in the living room, I'll go get it."

I'd packed all of Patrick's belongings that were at my house. I'd buy him whatever he needed later. Adam came back carrying the bag with all the things Patrick needed while we went somewhere.

I took the bag, gave Adam a quick kiss, and said goodbye for the last time. "Bye, Adam; I love you."

He grinned, and yelled out, "I love you too! Bye!"

I got in the car, strapped Patrick in, and drove off.

I stopped at the airport. "Mommy, what are we doing here? Why are you crying?"

I wiped away my tears. "Sweetie, I'll explain it to you later, okay? This is something we have to do."

Patrick nodded, and went back to destroying yet another toy.

I cried silently for a minute before getting out and being surrounded by people begging for autographs. I didn't know where I was going. But that wasn't something I needed to worry about. I'd do fine wherever I decided to go. The problem was the temptation to go back and just say, "TO HELL WITH JULIANA!" and go back to Adam. But I didn't. And that took all of my heart and all of my soul. And I can honestly say that love is like heaven, but it can hurt like hell.
