Take a Breath
"Sometimes you need to take a step back in life, and just... take a breath."
His words always play in my head, and I try and try again. Take a step back and take a breath... but how could he do it...? He was so much stronger than me, but how...? You'd expect someone like him for what he was going through to be so weak. Instead he stood tall, he helped me instead of himself...
I wish I would have done the same.

New college, new life, old friend... After having not talked to her in years she didn't recognize me and that's good. She probably forgot about me.
I know Emily's here and Will, I'll have to tell them soon that it's me. Not her though... I can't hurt her anymore.
That's all I did, was I brought her pain. With the stupid I love yous and the virtual hugs... In the end I know it wasn't my fault.
It was his fault, he betrayed her trust and broke her and I tried to mend her. I don't think I helped though...
I think I only made it worse.
Which is why I'm avoiding telling her who I really am... If she found out I was sick... It'd ruin her.
She'd be better off if I was nothing but a stranger.
