My poor baby.

My poor, poor baby.

She's still smiling, not even aware of what's going on.

She has a brain tumor.

They're going to operate next month, but it's a slim chance that she'll survive the operation.

Aaliyah tells them to do it anyway.

Calum is standing next to me, one hand on my waist and one in his pocket.

We're just staring at the little angel.

She keeps yawning.

"CarCar." She says.

I smile sadly.

"Yeah, Tati?"

"Did you know my daddy?"

I look up at Aaliyah.

I nod.

"Yeah."

"Was he nice?"

A tear rolls down my cheek.

"The nicest."

She nods.

"I think that's why I'm so nice. How did you know him?"

I laugh a little.

"He was my brother, Tati. The best big brother in the world."

She sighs and then yawns again.

"I want one, mommy." She says as she closes her eyes.

Aaliyah rubs her head.

"I'll see what I can do. You get some sleep, baby girl."

We walk out of the room.

"You guys are welcome to leave-"

"No, Ali. We're fine." I assure her.

"I love you, Car, but please. You've been here all day. You need some sleep."

I hug her and leave with Cal.

Peggy left a little while ago.

"You should come stay with us tonight. Peggy can come too." Cal says as we get into his car.

I nod and put my head on his shoulder.

-

I wake with a jolt in the middle of the night.

Calum sits up.

"Are you alright?" He asks.

I take a deep breath and nod.

"Yeah, yeah. Just a bad dream."

He jumps out of bed.

"I'll be back."

I hear him walk to the kitchen.

Then I hear running water.

He comes back with a glass and hands it to me.

I chug it down.

"Thank you." I say.

He kisses my forehead and pulls me down.

I scoot closer to him so that our foreheads are touching.

"Sweet dreams, baby." He says.

"Cal." I whisper.

"Yeah?"

"Thank you."

"For what?"

"For loving me."

"I couldn't imagine doing anything else."
