Today was the day .
I got out of bed and jumped in the shower trying not to wake savannah .
She was still asleep . She's so cute .
I quickly took my shower , got dressed and shaved the few hairs I had on my face.
"Today . It's gonna be hard but I have savannah " I said to myself in the mirror .
" be strong Martin. You can do this " I added .
I went to open the door but before I could savannah did.
Her hair was in half a bun, her eyes where half way closed and she wasn't fully awake yet.
" morning handsome" she said coming toward me .
" morning bea-" I started to say before I got interrupted by her
Lips hitting mine
She just kissed me , half asleep but still it was savannah .
Not long after I heard the shower running . I took that as my que to leave .
Everyone else in the house was up but mom and dad.
I fixed mine and Savannah's plates and sat them on the table .
Eggs , bacon, sausage and gravy and biscuits.
I had it all . I fixed her gravy and biscuit with sausage in it.
About 5 minuets later she came down the stairs fully awake .
She had thrown on a Rolling Stones t-shirt and some shorts.
" hello beautiful " I said as she made her way to the kitchen.
She smiled and yawned.
Once again she hugged me. This time a longer one.
" I'm so tired" she said with her arms around me
We sat down and ate.
Almost two hours later mom and date woke up.
We watched a film or two .
Mom and grandmother went and did last minuet funeral
Things . Grandpa did garden work and told dad a million stories .
Everyone's activities lasted until around 4.
About Time to get ready for visitation .
I put on a suit . Black suit , white shirt , turquoise tie .
Turquoise was her favorite .
About 20 minuets went by and savannah came down the stairs .
Her dark black hair was in big , beautiful curls . Her make up was absolutely perfect . She looked as though she was from a magazine .
Her black dress fit her body in the most perfect way . Knee length dress , black heels , and pearls .
She was something out of a dream .
To bad it had to be for this .
" you look absolutely breathtaking , sav " I said taking her arm.
" thank you , kind sir . You don't look to bad yourself " she said with a wink
I escorted her to the car and opened the door .
" y'all look like your going to
Some kind of premiere . Your aunt would be proud of you " grandma said
I smiled .
The idea of that made me happy , even on a day like this .
" you think she'd really be proud of me ??" I asked
" of course , baby." Mom said
" Martin . Did you really just ask that ? Of course she'd be proud of you ! What's not to be proud of ! Your grades , your sports, your kind, caring personality ! There's nothing to not be proud of , sugar !" Savannah said before giving me kiss on the cheek .
The visitation I thought would be long , annoying and unbearable was actually somewhat pleasant.
I mean about as pleasant as it could be .
All because I had her .
The best best friend a guy could ask for .
The funeral came .
Me , my family and savannah sat on the front pew .
" I can't do this ." I whispered to savannah .
" babe , you've got this . " she whispered back .
" I don't know if I'll be able to read it by my turn " I replied
" I'll be there . Right beside you . I'll even go up there with you and hold your hand . I'll read it for you , if that's what you want " she smiled
She grabbed my hand.
It made my heart skip a beat .
I knew she was doing all this because she's my best friend . We're that close but part of me was dreaming it was more.
My time came to speak and I
Couldnt get a single sound out.
" hey guys . I'm savannah and most of you know Martin . I've accompanied him up here today to help him get through his reading . " she stopped
" he's at a Loss of words but thank goodness he wrote them
Everyone giggled a bit
" my aunt , was the most kind caring lady you could meet. She had the biggest heart . She was like my second mother . She wasn't just an aunt, she was a best friend ." She began reading
She finished reading and she even added stories in that I had told her .
I'm shocked she even remembered .
The funeral ended and several
People came up to me.
Old friends , distant family and random strangers.
All saying various things .
Sorry for my loss , and all the typical things .
