Bring Me Home
Irene spends her days among the living, trying to understand life. It is a rule of hers to never watch over one person for too long, especially not those who are on the verge of joining her, but Nolan seems to be an exception.
Nolan wasn't intending on skipping out on his own high school graduation, contrary to his Biology teacher's beliefs. He had so many plans left for his life: go to college, graduate, get married, have a family, and so much more, but the tumor that formed in his brain had a different plan in mind, a plan that made all of what Nolan wanted for his life impossible.
Nolan's dying- he knows it, the doctors know it, and most of all, Irene knows it. And the scary part is that after a while, death starts sounding like a better option than continuing to fight.
Irene continues to silently cheer him on. But her cheering is half-hearted at times. Because when the boy you think you're falling in love with is dying, and you're already dead, it's hard to see his upcoming death as a bad thing.
