"Demitri, come sit" she commands from her bed
I tore myself away from her walk of memories and sat down next to her on the bed. She had a shoebox open in front of her with scraps of paper of various colors and sizes in it. Each had hardly comprehensible words on them.
"What's all this?" I asked pulling a piece of paper from the box
"I wrote down everything I ever wanted to do in my life. On whatever scrap of paper I could find so I don't forget" her eyes light up as she reads some of the ideas to herself
I chuckled at the muddled mess "you're so disorganized"
"I know I know. Most of these are way out there. See, like this one" she hands me a small torn piece of paper that read shark cage diving in South Africa
I realized a lot of her bucket list included world travel. What a great, totally crazy idea! "Let's do it"
"What!? Demitri are you crazy!? That would cost a fortune and I can't afford it..." She trailed off thinking, probably about her father
"But I can" I said quickly
"What!? NO! I can't let you waste your fortune on me. You worked too hard for it" she protested. Referring to inheriting my uncle's company and fortune when he died a few years ago.
"You can and you will. It's not a waste sunshine, I want to make all your dreams come true" her eyes softened and she smiled at me "besides, I'm coming with you"
She threw her arms around my neck, pulling me into a tight hug. I buried my face in the crock of her neck as I wrapped my arms around her waist and pulled her closer to me. After a few moments of her muttering 'than yous' over my shoulder she pulled away, her eyes damp. I wipers a tear off her cheek.
"So, the plan is, one: you make one list, no lose papers." I say as I playfully lift and dropped a handful of papers on her bed like confetti. She responds with a light giggle "and I get my affairs in order"
"Two: we go see our parents. Three we get our passports and paperwork ready and finally -"
"We pack and start our adventure" she said finishing my sentence
A week passed quickly and my company will function just fine without me but I'll have to check in periodically to insure they don't sell my firm from under me. I'm on my way to pick up Anya so we can go to our childhood homes and... tell our parents our plan. Don't know how dad will react though, since I inherited the firm from uncle Tony, all dad talks about is business. So he won't be happy that I'm leaving for... who knows how long with no explanation why other than being with Anya.
Before I knew it I was walking up the stairs and down the hall to her door.
"Demitri, come in" said Anya with a clear look of concern on her face
